My skin has been AWFUL lately. Over the weekend I started to develop a lot of dry/crackling patches, which I’ve been trying to keep at bay with a lot of moisturiser. This is the main reason why I was so eager to try this Missha Mascure Hyaluronic Acid Sheet Mask (they don’t make the names simple, do they?) as it specialises in those with problem skin (specifically dry skin).
I received this sheet mask as a gift from MaskTime, which was included within the “Glow Setter” subscription box. I have both bought and received masks from MaskTime in the past, and I’m 100% honest when I say that they are my go-to company for buying Korean masks. They are a small business based in the UK which makes it incredibly convenient for me and also provide amazing service! Anyway, onto the mask review…
Gimme’ the Lowdown
Hyaluronic Acid – This baby gives back moisture to the skin, reduces wrinkles and fine lines, giving the skin a “plumper” look.
Bergamot Oil – Perfect for those with acne/blemishes because it has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Sage Extract – This also helps with giving back moisture to dry skin, as well as helping to prevent acne or flare-ups.
Is it Cruelty Free?
This is tricky because even though Missha said that they don’t test on animals, and all of their Korean products aren’t tested on animals, they do sell some products in China which will have been tested on animals. There wasn’t a “cruelty free” logo on this packaging, so, to be on the safe side, I will assume that it’s not cruelty free.
This was the wettest mask I’ve ever put on, but it didn’t drip once! The holes for the eyes were a bit small (something I noticed in a previous Missha mask I tried, which I’ll be reviewing soon!) so I had to be really careful to make sure the moisture didn’t go into my eyes. The mask remained incredibly moist for the whole duration I had it on!
It was hard to tell when to take the mask off (as it usually dries a bit when the skin draws in the moisture) but luckily I had looked at the timestamp on my photos otherwise I would’ve worn it for a lot longer than 20 minutes. My face was still wet after peeling the mask off – how crazy is that?! So I just gently patted the excess moisture into my skin to help it absorb it a bit better.
The next day… I woke up to an amazing sight: my eczema patches had all but gone! There were still some dry flecks above my eyelids but that horrible dry patch under my left eye had completely gone. I was so relieved! My skin remained smoother than a baby’s bottom for the rest of the day and I was so happy. It’s the first time I’ve worn a mask that worked as well as this one did.
Sooo what did I think of Missha Mascure Hyaluronic Acid Sheet Mask?
This is the best hydrating mask I’ve ever tried, hands down. I would highly recommend it for those who suffer eczema because it cleared up 99% of my dry patches and I didn’t find it irritating at all! I would definitely get this again and save it for days when my skin really, really needs it.
Have you tried this sheet mask before?
