Skin type: Normal to dry
As you must be aware Sheet masks are all the rave right now! These form an essential part of the Korean skincare and are now being used all across the World. These are basically serum-drenched sheets that you can instantly apply on the face. Lately, more and more brands have been coming up with these masks that contain different ingredients catering to different skin needs. The one that I am reviewing today is the Face Shop Real Nature Blueberry Sheet Mask. So if you wish to know my thoughts on this one, please keep on reading. Let’s begin…
What The Brand Claims: The mask sheet with Blueberry essence (the gifted “super food”) replenishes skin’s moisture barrier to protect its energy and vitality and help create baby-soft skin. (Drenched with emulsified moisturizing serum/ Formula without added parabens)
Directions To Use: Wash face and apply toner. Pull out mask and carefully place on face. Remove after 10 to 15 minutes and pat face lightly to absorb remaining essence into skin.
My Experience With The Product: The Face Shop Real Nature Blueberry Sheet Mask in white in color and is very soft to touch. As you can see in the pictures below, it is completely soaked in the serum. I simply take the mask out and put it on the face. However, you do need to adjust it according to the shape of your face. There is always a good amount of serum left behind inside the packet that I apply on my hands and arms. During summers, I even put it in the refrigerator for some time before using and I just love how the cooling mask relaxes my skin! I let it stay on till it dries out which is usually around 20 minutes. There is no need to wash your face afterwards since the whole point is to let the goodness of the serum seep into your skin.
As soon as I remove the mask, my skin instantly feels soft, supple and extremely hydrated. It also removes dullness and leaves the face refreshed. But in spite of massaging all the serum into the skin, my face felt sticky. So I had no other option but to wash my face with plain water. Therefore, I feel this mask would go well with very dry, dry and normal skin. In addition, I did not notice any major visible glow, but just a subtle brightening up of the face. This mask has a mild pleasant scent that stays on for some time till it is placed on the face and then eventually fades off.
Now I know everyone loves these masks, but honestly I am not impressed! First of all, paying 100 bucks for a simple sheet does not appeal to me. Second, I did not notice any prominent glow or radiance on my face. I still prefer my usual face masks that actually show some results. This just feels like a gel-dipped sheet that does not do much for my skin. For the sheet masks to actually show some visible results, you will have to use them regularly and for a considerable amount of time.

- Expensive for a single sheet
- I did not notice any major glow, brightening effect does not last long
- Even after removing the mask and massaging all the serum into the skin, my face felt visibly sticky
- One needs to use the mask regularly for a good amount of time to actually notice some visible results
- Contains alcohol
Price: Rs 100 for 1 sheet (20 gm)
Do I Recommend This? Honestly, I am not really impressed with sheet masks. I do not see myself spending 100 bucks for just a single sheet for a one-time use. I still prefer the traditional masks as they give better results on my skin. But this is definitely my personal preference. If you feel these masks work for you, then by all means go for it!
This mask is mess-free, easy to use and fits right in your bag. It is very hydrating and thoroughly moisturizes the skin. It removes dullness and leaves the face smooth and refreshed. However, it does contain alcohol which is definitely a bummer!
Till next time,
