Hello there! Today’s review is on the category of skincare specifically sheet masks! Purchased this Lebaton Pearl Whitening Essence mask along with a whole bunch of other korean skincare which I also featured in a recent Althea korea haul. I had no specific reason to buy this particular one, just that it was on sale! $7.60 for 10 sheets.

The fitting of the mask was just enough for my face.
The mask was soaked in so much essence. It appears to be thinner as compared to other sheetmask I’ve tried. It was almost paper like to the point that it could tear apart if stretched. I left the mask on for a good 20 minutes on my face. It was still damp to touch. Immediately after using the mask, my skin was so moisturized and supple to the point that it became really sticky for my oily/combination skintype. My face became extremely shiny and it took a while for the essence to get absorbed on my skin. It almost felt like there was oil in the formulation of the essence. I did not see any noticeable “brightening” or “lightening” effect on my skin as the mask claims to. There was no irritations noted during and after using the mask. Sadly, I will not recommend this mask for oily skintypes. If your in need for some extreme hydration this just might work for you. But if your looking for a mask with a non-sticky feel, this is not it. Sadly I won’t repurchase this mask.
Effectiveness– The mask gave my skin a boost of hydration but I didn’t like the formulation of the essence which gave my face a very sticky almost tacky after feel that was too much for my oily/combination skin. So no points for that.
Packaging– Very cute.
Price– Affordable because it was on sale.
Availability- The sheet mask was only sold online as far as I know.
