Skinfood Aloe Mask Sheet Review

I'll make this short and sweet as I still have a deadline to meet. Lol :)

My fascination with Korean cosmetics has made me a certified mask sheet junkie! For some reason my skin is responding better on Korean skincare products than with its western - even local - counterparts. I suspect it has something to do with my being a half-Chinese. Anyway, mask sheet addiction proved to be somewhat costly - twice a week for 50Php up each- so I'm forever finding ways to cut cost. I'm doing a separate post for tips on how to get Korean cosmetics the lowest possible price and I might enlist help of some friends who love these kinds of products too, that is if they are not busy. Anyway, if you have a tip or two to share, please don't hesitate to comment below :)




Anyway, I got this mask from EBay, won it for only 35php, regular price is around 50Php (online price, please don't ask me about its mall price because I  seldom visit Skinfood shops in the Philippines - I think they are obscenely overpriced!) Anyway, Skinfood is one of my favorites when it comes to skincare. Super effective on my skin :) This mask sheet, being an aloe, has hydrating properties and at the same time, it soothes tired and stressed skin. I was tired, and I was stressed enough so I thought I deserved this. lol :D

Now for the review, I like the Skinfood Aloe Mask because it feels so nice on the face! Really, I've been dabbling with masks since December so I would know if this one is different from the others. Its cooling effect is amazing, in fact I suggest you stay away from the air conditioning unit when you have this on as it would probably cause your teeth to chatter! lol However, I find the holes, particularly the one for the mouth, a little too small so no talking the whole time. But I super love the smell! It's so good :) The mask itself is thick enough and adequately drenched with essence. As for the moisturizing part, well.. my skin felt moisturized alright (he he ALL masks feel the same after as you are not supposed to wash off the essence?) Soothing, very nice, my face came out refreshed and rejuvenated so I recommend this for an afternoon of relaxation. Very nice :)

repurchase? Probably, if it's up for bidding again. Not because I didn't like it but you see, I'm more of a "brightening" kind of person so I would like my masks to have the words "brightening" or even "firming" on it. I still have 2-3 bottles of moisturizer sitting inside my closet, waiting to be used so..

Thanks for the review =)...I think SkinFood products are more expensive compared to other korean brands...I've tried their Aloe Yogurt Mask before..it really doesn't do anything on my skin..well, aside from keeping it calm and relax (which I could achieve by merely splashing cold water to my skin,lolz)

I agree on Skinfood being more expensive than other brands and yes, not all of their products work. lol :D thank goodness for samples! Some of the things I sampled were worthy enough to buy in full sizes. Also the reason why I love blogging about them, they are sooo interesting. he he :D Good thing i don't easily break out :) Thanks ladies for dropping by! :)
