Next up from my Beauteque April Mask Maven Bag (review here) are the brightening sheet masks. I got two in my bag, here are my thoughts.
The first one I tried is the Etude House Vita Complex Mask. This one had directions in English on the packaging, which although I’m realizing all sheet masks are pretty much used the same, I do appreciate. This mask actually didn’t have the plastic sheet folded into the mask to help with unfolding it, but I actually didn’t find it difficult without it. This mask did not fit me as well beside the forehead was a bit short for me and the eye holes were a little narrow. Otherwise, it felt nice on, and my skin felt moisturized after using it. But, I didn’t feel like my complexion looked any different.
The second mask I tried was the Holika Holika Mango Juicy Mask Sheet. This was similar to the first in that the plastic sheet was absent and it had a similar poor fit to my face. This one did have a very nice, light mango fragrance that I feel deserves mention. But after about 20 minutes, I started to get this slight prickly feeling that made me want to remove the mask. I haven’t been super diligent about timing how long I wear the masks, sometimes I’ve kept them on for half an hour. This was the first time any mask caused any discomfort. I will say that I thought my skin look noticeably brighter after I removed this one. But, I also broke out a little the next day. I can’t say for sure that it was the mask, but that prickly feel I got from this was enough to make it a skip for me.
Neither of these masks was a true winner for me, so I’ll likely try something different in the brightening sheet mask realm. If you have any suggestions, please share them!
I also have a review of the hydrating sheet masks I received, you can read about them here.
