The Face Shop Pomegranate Mask Review
If you follow me on Instagram, you must have seen my recent sheet mask haul from The Face Shop. I have purchased almost every mask from the brand and will post the reviews in the coming days. The first review from their range is for The Face Shop Pomegranate Mask.
Product Claims: A mask sheet that provides elasticity and rich moisture to the skin. With pomegranate extracts, the all-new Real Nature Pomegranate Face Mask by Face Shop is here to transform your skin! Fight the first signs of aging and improve your skin’s elasticity with long-lasting hydration and a radiant complexion. Pomegranate extracts rich in antioxidants helps in bringing back skin’s bounciness and provides wrinkle care.
How To Use: Wash face and apply toner. Remove mask from the packet and gently unfold. Place the mask on entire face, smoothing to fit curves and adjusting around eyes, nose, and mouth. Remove after 10 to 15 minutes and pat in remaining content to absorb into the skin.
My Experience With The Face Shop Pomegranate Mask: Be it their travel-friendly nature or their effect on the skin, sheet masks have become a beauty favorite for most women. I have been using The Face Shop sheet masks these days, some of which have been hits while some have been misses. This pomegranate sheet mask is a bit on both sides. I will elaborate further on how I feel this way about this mask.
Its sheet is white in color and dipped in loads of serum, the fit of the sheet is okayish. It doesn’t fit well around the lips and does not spread evenly on the face. I do not consider it a negative thing since it is almost impossible to have a one-size-fits-all sheet. However, it settles well on the face and immediately starts working on the skin. I use it in the evening while catching a movie and it helps me relax after a tiring day. It has a mild fragrance which seems artificial but is very pleasant.
This mask sits on my skin for 20-25 minutes, there is a little serum left in the pack which I massage on the neck. My face feels sticky when I remove it, so I massage the remaining serum into my skin and wipe the excess for a cleaner look. I do not feel an immediate effect apart from hydration, however, my skin feels better and looks fresh the next morning. It also tightens the pores to some extent. I had bought this mask because it claimed to contain pomegranate extracts, we know that pomegranate is a storehouse of antioxidants so I had expected better results from it. This mask did add a little glow to my skin which was solely due to improved hydration but there was no other major difference. Also, I hated the sticky feeling on my skin after removing the mask. My skin feels hydrated for 2 days after which the effect starts to wear off.
If you love using sheet masks, I will recommend using them at least twice a week to keep your skin in good condition.
What I like about the product:
- Contains pomegranate extracts.
- Hydrates the skin.
- Skin looks fresh after use.
- Paraben free.
- Tightens the pores
What I don’t like about the product:
- Sticky feeling after removing the sheet mask.
- Contains alcohol.
Verdict: The Face Shop Pomegranate Sheet Mask hydrates the skin well but there is no other effect on the skin. My skin feels very sticky after removing the mask which is something that I dislike about the product. It does not transform your skin as it claims but moisturizes it and the effect lasts for 2 days. I will not repurchase it and will try the other sheet masks from The Face Shop.
