Be a Kikay: Face Masks from Innisfree, The Face Shop, and Etude House

Face masks are my entry to skin care. I got some as souvenirs from a friend who went to Korea and I’ve loved using them ever since. What I love when I used face masks is that they’re relaxing to the face and after putting them on it leaves my skin soft and a bit glowy for a few days. I started out with Innisfree and since they’re not available here in the Philippines I began to try other brands as well. Other brands I’ve tried are The Face Shop and Etude House. I got a pomegranate sheet mask from the 3 brands  and I’ll be comparing my experiences and hopefully share good insights for people.

It’s a good thing a lot of people are going to Korea nowadays. I was able to ask one of my friends to buy a couple of packs of Innisfree’s sheet mask since I already finished the ones I got as a souvenir. Their masks feels nice on the skin and is jam packed with moisturizing goodness. When I taking of the sheet mask I always put on  the extra juices left on the pack to my face. The only thing I have problems about sometimes is the fit specifically in the eye region. It almost always touches my waterline when I put in on.

I bought several of these on a buy 1 take 1 promo including a character mask. Overall the fit is so-so. I like the fit for the eye area however it’s a bit short for my forehead and the mouth area has always been a problem for all the sheet masks that I’ve tried. The thing with the Face Shop sheet mask is that it gets a bit stingy after a few minutes of leaving it on my face. It doesn’t really feel that comfortable when I’m just trying to relax. I’ve also had the most number of skin peeling cases with their sheet masks.

Etude House – 0.2 Therapy Air Mask


I got this as a gift from my brother. I never expected to try another brand of sheet mask til I got this because I was pretty much set on just buying Innisfree. The feature of this sheet mask is that it’s really thin. I really like how cool this mask feels after leaving it on for a couple of minutes. It’s really relaxing. Another thing that I like is that after I take the sheet mask off my skin doesn’t feel icky. I don’t get the feeling like I want to wash my face which I normally do after I put on a sheet mask.
