Skin Type – Normal to Combination
Today I will be reviewing another product from the Korean brand “The Face Shop”. It is a sheet mask, which is very different from our conventional masks. Read on to know how it performed.

My Experience with The Face Shop Fresh Milk Cream Face Mask:
Starting with the packaging, the sheet mask comes in a plastic packet which has an aluminium foil inside it. The foil basically protects the product (serum) to get affected by UV rays. The outer part has a very nice matte texture, and when you take them in your hand, you want 100s of such packets :P. The mask is made of very soft fabric and feels very gentle on skin. The company claims the fabric to be made of rice fibres.
Coming to the shape, this mask is an average fit for your face, sheet masks do not typically fit my face as I have a smaller face, and this one was no exception. The sheet masks do not fit my face that well and tend to wrinkle at various spots. The moment you cut open the packet, you are taken away by a strong smell of milk; it smells more like J&J milk lotion. It is so good that I felt like eating it. The mask is completely drenched in the serum, in fact the serum is in excess and you can literally squeeze out the excess serum and store it in a container and use it post removing the mask. I generally do that whenever there is excess serum in the mask. And this one seemed too precious to throw away.
This is one nourishing sheet mask that I have ever used. This one is just perfect for people with normal to dry skin. I apply the mask and keep it for 40-45 minutes on my face. My skin literally drinks it up within 15 minutes. So this is very hydrating for dry and parched skin and skin soaks it up really fast. It leaves my skin feeling soft, supple and fully hydrated. I did not use any cream on top of it, it was so nourishing. I feel this will be my perfect pick for winter as my skin becomes really dry in winter.
After removing the mask, my skin did feel a bit sticky, and since it has been really hot past few days, I did not like the feeling. It gives a very light glow to your face which is not at all long-lasting. But it definitely scores full marks in the hydration and nourishment department.
Pros of The Face Shop Fresh Milk Cream Face Mask:
• Highly nourishing.
• Gives the right level of hydration.
• Smells nice.
• Serum gets soaked up in the skin pretty fast.
• Perfect for dry skin.
• Apt for winter season.
Cons of The Face Shop Fresh Milk Cream Face Mask:
• Not available locally.
• May not be suitable for oily skin.
• Does not give a long lasting glow.
IMBB Rating: 3.5/5
