Jiinju Cucumber Sheet Mask

Hi there! I’ve got a face mask review for you today. And it’s about this Jiinju Cucumber Sheet Mask. This mask promises to calm and soothe skin. The essence contains cucumber juice, sodium hyaluronate and a number of flower, leaf and root extracts.

This mask is supposed to be used on cleansed skin. Simply leave it on for 10-20 minutes. Then massage the leftover essence into your skin. Alrighty, here’s what I think of this mask…

First of all, since the sachet contains A LOT of runny essence, here’s what I’ve done: I enjoyed the sheet mask as recommended. Once it was almost dry, I threw it back into the sachet so it would soak up the remaining essence. Then I enjoyed another sheet mask right away.

But how’s the mask? I think it’s good but not great. I would agree that it’s soothing and calming – but I wouldn’t recommend using it on freshly exfoliated skin because the mask might have the opposite effect. I know because I made this mistake once!

Jiinju Cucumber Sheet Mask is available as a 20ml single use sheet mask. On the back of the sachet it says that the mask was not tested on animals, and that it’s suitable for vegans. I received a number of these masks as a gift with purchase (Superdrug).

Jiinju Avocado Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing this Jiinju Avocado Sheet Mask. This sheet mask promises to hydrate skin deeply. It’s very easy to use – cleanse your skin, place the mask on your face, leave it on for 10-20 minutes, then massage the leftover essence into your skin. I had 3 of these masks – and I’ve used them all now, and here’s what I think…

I think this is a really nice face mask. The “essence” is more of a fluid-to-cream formula. The mask looks and feels like it was drenched in a moisturising cream. I found this mask very enjoyable, and I would recommend it to people with dry skin. It’s probably too rich for people with oily skin, but that tells you how deeply moisturising and nourishing this mask is!
