Hey There! Summer has given way to monsoons and with it comes humidity coupled with the heat. Facial skin care is more important than ever before. Using a face mask is a quick and sure shot way to get your skin the nourishment it needs.
Nowadays, every brand is launching these face masks. It is a hard decision to choose the most suitable one for your skin and bright packaging is so often tempting and misleading.
Still, you got to start somewhere and I decided to give the ones available on naykaa.com a try. I have bought 6 different masks by The Face Shop and will be sharing a separate review for each of them as and when I use them.
About the Face Shop
The face shop is a South Korean skin care and cosmetics manufacturer and retailer. Its products include body, bath, skin care and make-up aimed for both women and men. So the next time when you go looking for a total body care solution you know where to look.
The face mask sheet
Before I start reviewing Real Nature Longan Face Mask, I would like to give brief detail about the mask sheet.
Unlike wash off face masks, mask sheets are made of a thick cloth or paper mask that is cut in the shape of a face to cover it up with slits for eyes, nose and the mouth. The masks are soaked in essence and are meant for single use.
How to use it?
- Apply it over a clean face (unfold the mask carefully)
- Leave it on for 15-20 minutes and then gently remove it
- Don’t wash your face right now! Allow the serum to get absorbed in your skin
- Its effect can be enhanced by placing the mask in the fridge before use
For now, I have tried the face mask with lemon extract. Franky speaking, it is not something that will change your skin entirely. However, it definitely, brightens and adds a fresh glow to dull skin tone.
It’s the quickest way to pamper your skin and gives the result in less than 20 minutes. I could feel the brightness and softness of my skin instantly. In short, I can say that it’s an express spa for the face.
Price: Rs 100 per sheet (20 gm)
Will I get it again?
Maybe! I am not sure about it because I was on a face mask haul and have purchased 10 mask sheets of 6 different kinds. I will be using one face mask each week so that I don’t have to replenish my stock for 10 weeks.
It’s a good product and serves what it promises. It is basically for hydration and skin brightening. So if somebody is looking for more out of this face mask, it is not meant for them.
I would definitely recommend it to those who are looking for at home quick hydration and skin brightening.
Where to buy?
I actually do not want to criticise any website or question its pricing policy. When I was looking for mask sheets by The Face Shop, I noticed a huge price difference in price – Amazon.in sells these masks at Rs 599 per sheet whereas naykaa.com sells it for Rs 100 per sheet. Phew!
