This is the second mask I tried this week.
It was the first time trying it, so my review might not be the most accurate.
The back side
I have combination skin with oily T-zone and normal - dry cheeks, but this mask is appropriate for all skin types except sensitive. Which I think is a paradox, because it says it helps PREVENT sensitivity.
The packaging is nice, looks very pretty to me, especially the strawberry drawing. It kinda makes you expect a strawberry scent. And there it is, but it is more of a candy strawberry smell than fresh strawberries.
The sheet is very gentle, great quality one. But I went like 'YUCK' when I took it out. Why? Because I didn't expect it to be a gel mask. I mean I never tried a sheet mask that had some sort of gel in it.
It was a bit slippery, so I had quite a hard time applying it correctly. But after I managed to do so, ah it was time to relax!
You can keep the mask on for 15-20 minutes, but since I wanted to get the most out of it, I went for 20 minutes.
I didn't wash my hands after I applied it, I just lied down. My hands felt greasy and sticky at the same time. Then the feeling was gone, but the stickiness didn't go away until 5 minutes later.
About 10 minutes after I applied the mask, I got this weird burning sensation. It wasn't really strong, but it was noticeable. The feeling grew a bit stronger, but I still decided to keep the mask on for another 10 minutes.
Luckily the feeling went away after a couple of minutes later. Don't get me wrong, my skin is NOT sensible.
When 20 minutes have passed, I stood up (at this time the mask was practically glued on my face, so it didn't fall off) and took it off. It is not a leave - on the mask so I washed my face thoughtfully. It took me some time since the mask left behind this sluggish feeling.
I noticed that my cheeks were red from irritation and they even felt a bit dry too. My face didn't feel really moisturized at all. The skin over my brows was really dry.
So I applied toner (Garnier Fresh Essentials) and over it Jojoba oil to calm down the irritation. It worked.
+ Smells nice
+ It is very well priced
+ Comes in a handy package

Well, I didn't like the gel consistency of the mask, but I loved how great the sheet mask felt on my skin. Pure love! The smell wasn't that bad either, it stopped my sugar cravings because of its sweetness. Sadly it didn't work out, as my skin got irritated. Tho I have to admit, it left my skin feeling smooth. I wouldn't repurchase (this was part of a swap tho), even if I love sheet masks. For me, it has more negative proprieties than positive, so it is definitely a no-go for me.
