Missha Real Essential Sheet Mask (Ceramide) Review

Uhh, right off the bat. I had such a hard time unfolding the mask. Since it has a few slits around it (I guess so that it would be easier to fit around the face) I had to be careful in opening it so I wouldn’t tear it. To be honest, I don’t even know if you can rip it—I haven’t experienced it yet. It fits well on the skin, but because there is a really generous amount of essence, it was kind of slippery and my hands were soaked in essence by the time I finished putting it on my face.

It smells pretty nice, nothing weird. It actually reminds me of baby wipes, hehe. The Cupro mask is really really moist but it sticks on the face well after it’s placed well. It feels kind of tingly on the face in the beginning. Again it’s probably because this mask also has alcohol.

The steps for this mask are the same as other masks. You unfold, place it on the face, wait 15-20 minutes and then massage the essence into the skin, patting for better absorption.

After the 15-20 minute treatment period, my face felt softer and refreshed. There was enough essence for my face. It absorbs well, because I didn’t have much for my neck. I had to stick my hand into the packet it came in and rub the excess from there onto my neck.

Ceramide is supposed to be for “intense anti-trouble care” (which means anti-acne) and claims to make our delicate skin “calm and soft”. And it did, even now my face feels soft! And it’s been… an hour since I had the mask on.

Also, after putting in the mask—I continued my skincare regimen and the last few steps absorbed so well compared to other nights before using it.

Missha sent this mask for free with my order, but it’s standard. And obviously a small blog like this would not be sponsored. This is my honest opinion and everyone’s skin reacts differently.

This mask should be available at whatever retailers sell this (store locations can be found at the Missha website) and if you live in the US you can purchase them at Misshaus.com. They sell for $2.99 and are available in other different kinds of target treatments—like Collagen for Anti-Aging, Platinum, etc.

It’s been a day later: The blemishes I had on my forehead got smaller, and my face was still really soft. I hope it’s because of the mask—I’m willing to go and order more. 

Here are pictures of the mask in it’s packaging and close up of the sections in both Korean and English… I’m not really comfortable with taking a picture with the mask on (LOL).

That was all I had to say about the mask, this was entirely my opinion and I hope it helps you out in learning more about the mask.

As a note to you about my skin, I’ll add what I put in a previous post:

  • I’m Dominican; I believe our backgrounds play a role on our genetic make up and skin.
  • I have oily, acne prone skin (controlled by Proactiv).
  • I blot excess oils every 3-5 hours… Depending on how shiny my face gets.
  • My skin has large pores and they get clogged pretty easily… (clogged sounds kinda disgusting… -__-;)
  • I get dark spots and acne scars easily.

Thank you for reading!
