What the brand says: Soft and smooth skin is just a step away with the Innisfree’s Skin Clinic Mask – BHA. This fine delicate cotton mask contains BHA to remove accumulated dead cells, leaving your skin texture feeling sleek and soft. The sheet mask contains BHA which cares for rough skin to keep the skin smooth and soft. This 100% natural cotton sheet is made from soft cotton hairs around the cotton wool.
BHA or beta hydroxyl acid or simply salicylic acid is able to penetrate into the pore, which contains sebum, and exfoliate the dead skin cells that are built up inside the pore. By removing all the gunk and dead skin cells, it helps maintain smooth skin.
MY TAKE ON INNISFREE SKIN CLINIC MASK-BHA
The sheet mask comes in a pretty matte and metallic packet unlike real squeeze masks. These sheet masks are thinner and come neatly folded in a thin white plastic sheet inside the packet. The real squeeze masks come alone in matte packets which is why this one is priced a bit higher. The packets are easy to carry around and can be used whenever and wherever you want.
The mask comes moist and soaked completely in the non-sticky liquid.
The mask has a mild chemical smell which is not very strong and won’t bother sensitive noses.
How I use and staying power:
I took out the thin cotton mask from the neatly folded plastic film and placed it on my cleansed face. You are supposed to keep the sheet mask for 15-20 minutes but I let it work longer, for 30 minutes after which the sheet dried up and then I had to remove it. When I removed the sheet mask, there was no residue left on my skin and everything had dried up. My face felt tighter and pores seemed reduced. The mask is supposed to help your skin get rid of dead skin cells and make sin soft and smooth which did not really happen. All it did was just make my skin feel tighter and stretched which made my skin a bit drier after few hours (Its winter and I am already struggling with dry skin!). For those who are looking out for a skin tightening face mask and only if you have very oily skin, you can use this sheet mask.
