Product Review: The Face Shop Real Nature Cucumber Mask

Hey cuties! This is my first non-clay mask review. I've tried a ton of other masks besides clay ones but I never reviewed them. But, since I know a lot of you guys love Korean brands, I thought I would share my thoughts on The Face Shop's Real Nature Cucumber mask.

The description on the back says, "A hydrating/vitalizing mask sheet containing cucumber extract to fill puffy and lackluster skin with cool hydrating minerals". As I was using it, there was a cooling sensation that felt really nice and refreshing. It's great if you live someplace that has a lot of humidity because it gets rid of that muggy feeling in the air. 

What I love about this is that it's really hydrating for something that doesn't cost a lot of money. The serum works better than the hyrdrating masks I've used. But since I haven't tried a lot of sheet masks, I don't know how it compares to other brands. My skin did look livlier and more refreshed which I was really impressed by because it only has one use.

As for the mask itself, it was huge. It was falling off my face and I had to keep adjusting it. After a half an hour, it kind of got annoying.

I got this mask in a set of three in The Face Shop's Real Nature mask line off of Amazon for about $4 without shipping. Products from Korea always take about three weeks for it to arrive. I knew that going into it, but it's still an inconvenient. 

Pros
-Cooling
-Hydrating
-Cheap
-Refreshing

Cons
-Not available in US
-Mask was too big

Would I buy it again? Yeah, especially now because it's super humid where I live, but I would like to try some other brands first. I got some more coming soon so there might be some more reviews. If you guys have any suggestions for more sheet masks I should try, leave a comment and I'll check it out! See you next time! XD

  6. I actually have a 'The Face Shop' store in the city I live in, and I do like cucumbers, so maybe I'll pick this up the next time I'm there!

    Also, I have a huge face/head, so maybe that won't be a problem for me, heh :D
