MY TAKE ON DEAR PACKER HOME REMEDY MASKS
Packaging: The sheet masks come in a pretty colorful plastic packets (with ingredients printed on it) that need to be peeled off to remove the sheet mask soaked in essence.
My take on respective ‘Home Remedy’ sheet masks:
Coconut- This particular sheet mask claims to keep your skin soft, supple and glowing. This sheet mask is drenched in essence that has nourishing properties with the goodness of coconut extracts. The very first thing that came to my mind was Bounty chocolate when I opened the packet; it smells super delicious! The sheet mask does not feel watery and the essence seems quite thick. Also, this is the first mask ever that physically fitted me so well! This should be the case with all the other sheet masks to (That we’ll see!). I let the sheet mask work for good 30 minutes, peeled it off and massaged the remaining essence into my skin. It got completely absorbed and made my skin matte and super soft at the same time. I usually wash off the sheet masks because of the sticky feeling but this one felt super light on the skin once it got absorbed. You can even put on your makeup or follow with your skin care routine! This mask need not be only used at night, you can use it during the day time too since it doesn’t feel sticky like the innisfree sheet masks (in my opinion). Now coming to the claims, this mask does soften and smoothen your skin so I give this a thumbs up!
Turmeric and Yogurt- This particular sheet mask claims to give you a brighter, clearer and glowing complexion. This sheet mask is drenched in essence that has turmeric and yogurt extracts that provides moisture and nutrition to tired, dull skin. The mask smells of turmeric essential oil which is very mild and not strong at all. I was expecting the mask to have a hint of yellow color since it has a potent staining ingredient- turmeric (even turmeric essential oil or its extract is yellow!) but to my surprise, the mask is soaked in clear viscous liquid. This mask too fits really well and covers the nicks and corners of the face. I let the sheet mask work for good 30 minutes, peeled it off and massaged the remaining essence into my skin. The mask took a bit longer to get absorbed than the earlier mask I used but once it was completely absorbed, it was matte and skin felt clean. Skin felt a bit brighter and softer but results are not miraculous! I can get similar brightness/glow and softness after exfoliating or cleansing my skin! Skin does feel fresh but that isn’t the only thing I expect from this mask. I feel homemade turmeric and yogurt mask works 100 times better and this certainly cannot be an alternative!
Charcoal- This particular sheet mask claims to cleanse your pores by drawing out all the impurities, clear up your blemished skin, absorb excess sebum, purify skin and tighten the pores. The sheet has charcoal extracts that has great adsorption properties (we all are aware of it!) which makes it a great skin purifying ingredient! Unlike other masks, this sheet mask is actually black in color because it is made up of exclusive blend of bamboo charcoal and bamboo fiber woven together to perfection. The sheet mask smells of fake fragrance obviously because charcoal doesn’t smell of anything and the ingredients depicts fragrance added to it! This mask too fits really well and covers the nicks and corners of the face. I let the sheet mask work for good 30 minutes, peeled it off and massaged the remaining essence into my skin which got dry and matte in no time. Skin felt very smooth and firm and I do feel very clean! Excess sebum is definitely absorbed because there isn’t any shine even after an hour! Since my skin feels very clean and fresh, I am sure the charcoal has done its job of drawing out all the impurities. I do not have visible open pores but I do have enlarged pores because of acne scarring and just a face mask won’t help it; but my skin does feel firm so I am sure this will work for open pores (enlarged and open pores isn’t the same)! Regarding the skin clearing claim, that is something one cannot expect from just one use and reusing this multiple times (not to forget each use costs 100 bucks!) will burn a hole in your pocket. I would use an actual activated charcoal powder instead for that price which should last for more than a year! The mask is great when you want to cleanse your pores and purify your skin!
Green Tea and Jasmine- This sheet mask claims to sooth irritated skin, reduce redness and improve the overall appearance of complexion. Jasmine has soothing and calming properties while green tea reverses UV damage and improves the complexion. The mask smells floral and the fragrance is very mild. I used the sheet mask just like I used the others and this one too fits really well on the face. After using the mask, I massaged in the essence and it dried up in no time leaving behind a velvety-matte feel to the skin which definitely looked healthy. My skin definitely felt fresh and brightened up! It did improve the complexion (and when I realized this I did not even know what the sheet mask claims). I have 2 active tiny blemishes on my nose and forehead and they definitely seemed calmed down, felt less painful and redness was visibly reduced; and guys this did happen I am not even kidding you! The mask is great to reduce any redness and inflammation of the skin and to my surprise the effects were seen from just one usage. I now want to grab more of this one to regularly use it, as 4 out of 10 days, my skin is inflamed due to blemishes! I give this mask a thumbs up!
Fenugreek and Cucumber- This sheet mask claims to cool your skin and reduce any rashes or inflammation. The fenugreek and cucumber work as cooling agents and reduce suntan, rashes and any inflammation on the skin. I used the sheet mask just like I used the others and this one too fits really well on the face. After using the mask, I massaged in the essence and it dried up in few minutes leaving behind a velvety-matte feel to the skin which definitely looked healthy. I used this when I was back home and skin felt fresh, cooled down and healthy. I do not have any tan yet so cannot comment on the anti-tan effects. October is getting hotter and this mask worked great in keeping my skin calm! For added benefits, keep the mask in fridge for an hour before using it to enhance the cooling and calming effects. There isn’t any miraculous visible effects or changes but you can definitely feel your skin better and not-as-inflamed as it gets on a hot day. You can definitely get more of these and stock up in the fridge to use throughout October or summer season. I quite like this mask and give this a thumbs up.
Cinnamon and Honey- This sheet mask claims to correct visible signs of aging, lift and nourish your skin. The cinnamon has skin tightening effects while honey nourishes. I used the sheet mask just like I used the others and this one too fits really well on the face. After using the mask, I massaged in the essence and it dried up in few minutes leaving behind a velvety-matte feel to the skin which definitely looked healthy. I do not have saggy or wrinkled skin as i am still in my 20s but my skin did feel tighter and healthy. Also, after massaging in the essence, skin looked brightened up maybe because of honey since it works as a natural bleaching agent. Skin felt soft and smooth and I applied my makeup without even rinsing off the essence and my skin felt very healthy and nourished. The mask does work and I give this a thumbs up!
