I have previously tried the wash-off versions, Hydrating Cucumber Masque and the Re-Energizing Green Tea Masque, and found both of them disappointingly blah. However, Encouraged by my experience with the wash-off SkinLite Strawberry Yogurt Masque, I decided to give SkinLite Cucumber and Green Tea Essence Masks nother chance. My logic, or rather illogic, was this: since the SkinLite masks were pretty much hit and miss, I might as well try them all. I was somehow hopeful that with this method, I will happen upon something that will work for me.
Not making much sense, right? Yeah, I thought so :D I didn't know what the hell I was thinking either, because -what do you know- both of the sheet mask versions were not that much better than their wash-off counterparts. Ha. They were a little better, but just a little, and not enough to justify anymore money spent on my part (like it was justifiable to begin with LOL).
The cucumber mask still smelled very much like cucumber.
The green tea mask smelled nice, but that was about it.
I really wished these sheet masks were better. I mean, what's the point of putting something on your face only to feel as though you didn't put anything on at all? Now, in terms of makeup, people would call this the "natural" look, as in spending tons of time and products to make one's face look as though it is bare. However, only in the makeup world one can actually get away with this irony. This is skincare, and when spending tons of time and products only to have one's face looks like it hadn't been cared for, people get mad, you know?
Oh well. Next.
