The Face Shop Cucumber, Olive Face Mask Review

Price : Rs 100 each

My Experience :

I have used a couple of The Face Shop Masks and I absolutely love them. Today I am reviewing two of them. These are white sheet masks that are soaked in serum and are instant soothers to the skin. Both the masks fit very well on the contours of the face and do not slip. You can see me wearing the mask HERE You have to apply them for good 15-20 minutes and then dispose off the sheet. I mostly keep for 30 minutes. After removing some serum is left on the skin, which I just massage it in the skin. Both the maska have a mild soothing fragrance, which I totally enjoy while using them.

The Face Shop Olive Face Mask :

I looooved this mask a lot. I have normal to dry skin. Water and glycerin are one of the first ingredients listed on the list. The serum of this mask got totally soaked up in my skin and left it nourished. My skin was super rejuvenated. It looked clear and there was a glow on my face that stayed for good 2 days. I also didn’t feel the need to apply moisturizer to my skin. It kept my skin hydrated through the dry air of the plane and my skin looked and felt refreshed after using it. It does not feel oily or greasy. Just perfect to moisturize and hydrate your skin. I have used 3 of these and I just loved my skin every time I use it. It works as a mini facial for my skin. :)

The Face Shop Cucumber Face Mask:

This one did nothing for my skin. The lovely cooling serum felt great on my skin. It kept my skin hydrated but I didn’t see any change in my skin. It was a very temporary feel-good mask and that’s about it. May be it works better for those with oily skin but I would not be repurchasing this one.

Overall, I am in love with the face shop masks. The negatives are that they have parabens and alcohol in the ingredient list. So I use them only during my travel and not necessarily as my regular face packs. These might even break out some people. I have had no such issues. I find them excellent for travel and that’s where I plan to use these mostly.

PS : Sorry for the crappy pics. I took them with phone on plane. :(
