We’ve already consumed them last weekend so today I thought Id share with you guys how I felt about using them.

Verdict:

  • I had my boyfriend use this again since he has acne-prone skin and has larger pores than mine. The essence is a little bit sticky compared to the Volcano Ash sheet mask but it made his skin smoother after use. It gives no effect to his pores but I guess nothing really does on first use right?

Usage/How to:

  1. I first do my double cleansing then I use a toner before putting on the mask.
  2. I peel of the package and unfold the mask. (I notice that some mask were not properly folded but I didn’t mind)
  3. I adjusts the mask sheet to fit my eyes, nose, and mouth and gently smoothen out  the mask properly on my face.
  4. I leave the mask on for 15-20 minutes then take it off and gently pat the remaining goodies on to my skin and neck. Esfolio is very generous in putting a lot of excess essence in the package so I also put some on my arms and leg. Relaxing!

Final Thoughts:

Overall, I love Esfolio Pure Skin Mask Sheets. Esfolio has a lot of mask sheet variants to choose from depending on your skin needs. Plus, they’re super cute and affordable. I definitely recommend this sheet mask to those who want to pamper themselves but at the same time do not want to spend too much money on masks. Girl, beauty doesn’t always have to be pricey, right?
Well, that’s about it. Have you tried Esfolio mask? Let me know which one’s your favorite! Until next time!
