Skin type: Normal to dry
Nykaa very recently added new variants to their range of sheet masks. I picked out 4 masks, out of which I am reviewing the Strawberry and Argan Oil one today. So let’s jump right into the detailed review and see how was my experience. Keep reading…
What The Brand Claims: Lusciously filled with rich vitamin C, Strawberry protects the moisture-barrier of your skin to give you a revitalized and radiant complexion. While, Argan Oil, which is regarded as the ‘Liquid Gold’, quickly seeps deep into your skin to give it a natural boost of nourishment. These two exquisite ingredients work together to give you a blemish-free, even skin tone and a healthy, radiant complexion.
Packaging: The sheet mask comes in a beautiful plastic cover that looks attractive and definitely catches one’s attention. It will fit right in your bag and is easy to carry around. As you tear open the outer cover, you will find the sheet mask inside. All the important details such as date of manufacturing, use-before date, directions to use, ingredient list and price are clearly mentioned at the back of the cover.
My Experience With The Product: Nykaa Strawberry and Argan Oil Sheet Mask is white in color and is very soft to touch. As you can see in the pictures, it is completely drenched in serum. However, I found the sheet to be really thin! In fact, one needs to be careful while unfolding; else it can easily tear off. I simply take the mask out and put it on my face. But you do need to slightly adjust it according to the shape of your face.
I found the size and fit quite similar to the Face Shop Sheet Mask. There is also some amount of serum left behind inside the packet, that can be applied on the hands and arms. As soon as you apply the mask, it provides a soothing feeling and relaxes the skin. I let it stay on till it dries out; which usually takes around 20-25 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.
After removing the mask, I massage the remaining serum into my skin. The great thing about this mask is that the serum beautifully gets absorbed and does not leave behind any residue. In fact, it feels quite lightweight and non-sticky, which is impressive! Now talking about the effectiveness, it beautifully hydrates the skin and provides a boost of moisture. The skin instantly feels soft, supple and thoroughly nourished. Along with this, it also removes dullness and brightens up the face a little. I feel this mask would work best for those with normal to dry skin.
I personally found Nykaa’s sheet masks better than the Face Shop ones in terms of effectiveness and results. Coming to the fragrance, this mask has a fruity Strawberry scent that I absolutely love! It is mild and would not bother sensitive noses at all. The product can be easily found on Nykaa’s website as well as in Nykaa stores.

Final Thoughts: Nykaa Strawberry and Argan Oil Sheet Mask definitely does a good job and delivers what it claims. It thoroughly moisturizes the skin and leaves it soft, supple and nourished. The serum easily gets absorbed and is lightweight and non-sticky. It calms down the skin and has a lovely soft Strawberry scent too. Unfortunately, it contains alcohol, which is a disappointment!
If sheet masks work for your skin, then you should definitely go for it! In fact, I found Nykaa’s sheet masks better than the Face Shop ones. But you do need to use the mask regularly for a good amount of time to notice visible results and spend 100 bucks for a single sheet every time.
Till next time,
