I have always been attracted towards Korean skin care, and an essential part of their skin care regime is sheet masks. They keep a bunch of sheet masks at home to pamper their skin. I got three sheet masks from Watsons and this is the last one, called “ginseng”. Scroll down to get more details!
Price: RM 6.90
Watsons repairing facial mask with ginseng extract contains rich source of phytochemicals, compounds which help recharge tired and aged skin. Your skin will become more energized and radiant after use.
Directions: Gently place the mask onto your face after cleansing. Leave on for 15-20 minutes. Gently massage the remaining essence into the skin. Use 2-3 times per week for optimal results.
My Experience with Watsons Tencel Repairing Facial Mask Ginseng:
Packaging: These sheet masks attracted me the moment I saw them! They came in really pretty colourful shades and I would love to have these on my vanity. This one, in particular, is a ginseng one, hence comes in a bright orange packaging. It has light orange fonts over it which makes the entire packaging look very quirky. Since these masks come in sachets it is super easy to carry them all around. Also, these are very easy to use; just tear the packaging, put the mask on and forget about it. All the details are nicely mentioned at the back of the packaging.
Feel on the skin and scent: Usually, the sheet masks are bigger than my face size and they don’t fit properly, but this one was of the perfect size and sat nicely on my skin. The mask was soft and felt very gentle. It stuck nicely to my face and stayed put for like 20 minutes or so. It was pretty wet which means it was loaded with the essence. I usually keep a sheet mask on for 20 minutes and then the edges start coming off; that’s when I get to know that it is the time to remove the mask. The essence did inject all the moisture into my skin within those 20 minutes.
Results: The essence was huge in quantity so after removal a lot of essence was there on my face which I used for a nice massage until it got completely absorbed. My skin felt amazingly hydrated after using this and this mask gave all the moisture that my skin was lacking. My face initially felt very fresh but the results were temporary. The dryness from my face had gone away and the next morning my looked felt and looked healthier. My facial skin felt really soft to touch and I did not need a moisturizer after this. I got a very natural glow after using this. Although it did not make my skin look any brighter, it made my skin look better with a smoother texture and amazing softness. The main purpose was hydration, which it gave. But if there is some mask which would give hydration and brightness to my skin then I would prefer than one.
