A while back I had joined one of skin18.com campaigns and here’s what they sent me to try out in exchange for my honest opinions.
Nature Republic Real Fresh Mask Sheets. I received 5 different flavors: Raspberry, Pomegranate, Olive, Blueberry, and Green tea. They are very similar in term of ingredients and feel, only vary in different extracts depending on the flavor. Therefore for ease of reviews I’ll be doing only one type. You can always find individual reviews on my Instagram page.
Nature Republic Real Fresh Mask Sheets: Pomegranate flavor
Ingredients: Water, butylene glycol, aloe barbadensis leaf water, glycerin, peg/ppg-17/6copolymer, alcohol, glycereth-26, citrus paradisi (grapefruit) fruit extract, hydroxyethyl acrylate/sodium acryloyldimethyl taurate copolymer, chondus crispus (carrageenan) extract, peg-60 hydrogenated castor oil, punica granatum fruit extract, glycosyl trehalose, xanthan gum, ethylhexlglycerin, hydrogenated starch hydrolysate, adenosine, glyceryl polyacrylate, panthenol, sodium hyaluronate, cymbopogon schoenanthus extract, ficus carica (fig) fruit extract, ginkgo biloba nut extract, polyglutamic acid, cladosiphon okamuranus extract, disodium EDTA, phenoxyethanol, fragrance.
As you can see the material is very soft. It’s soaked in essence, feel very comfortable and adhere well to the face.
The essence is very thick and sticky! and not much left in the pouch. But I don’t mind since the mask is soaked with it.
There’s light fragrance but it disappeared quickly. Normally I don’t like any fragrance but I wasn’t bother by it.
The mask stayed moist for 30 minutes, it could probably stay longer, it doesn’t seem to dry out at all! After the mask was removed it takes another 15 minutes for all the essence to absorb. Beware it does feel sticky! But face is sure hydrate and soft after.
There’s also alcohol listed in the ingredients list but i didn’t detect any smell of it nor my face feel red or dry out or experience any irritation. So it’s okay with me.
I prefer the fragrance to be taken out in case someone with very sensitive skin might not like it.
Holika Holika Juicy Mask Sheet: Tomato
Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Alcohol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Peg-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Phenoxyethanol, Carbomer, Triethanolamine, Solanum Lycopersicum (tomato) Fruit Extract, Allantoin, Disodium Edta, Fragrance, Actinidia Chinensis (kiwi) Fruit Extract, Citrus Aurantifolia (lime) Fruit Extract, Fragaria Chiloensis (strawberry) Fruit Extract
The material is soft and the fit is perfect but I’m not excited about this mask. I didn’t see any change after wearing it for 20 minutes. There’s also the alcohol smell. I can smell it while wearing it. Also, if you’re against using Triethanolamine in your leave on products this mask has it. For the retail price of $3 I can find much better masks out there.
I hope you find these reviews useful! Thank you again skin18.com for sending these my ways. It was fun trying these!
