Review: The Face Shop Real Nature Lemon Citron Mask ★★☆☆☆

Today I’m finally using the Face Shop’s Real Nature Lemon citron mask. I got this when it was on sale during September last year and I hauled it on this blog. I'll link it right here! I was really excited to use The Face Shop masks since I heard good reviews about them. Maybe that's why I was kinda expecting a bit more for this mask.

So, let's review this mask!
It claims to be " illuminates your skin and gives you a flawless complexion! Enriched with lemon extract with brightening properties, it will even out your complexion in an instant!" - The Face Shop Website

Ingredients - Water/Eau, Glycerin, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Fruit Extract, ButyleneGlycol, Alcohol Denat., Betaine, Sodium Hyaluronate, Xanthan Gum, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Dimethicone, Phaseolus Radiatus Extract, Betula Platyphylla Japonica Bark Extract, Rumex Crispus Root Extract, Carbomer, Peg-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Triethanolamine, Parfum/Fragrance

I really like the mask material since it has a thin sheet mask that is soaked in essence. I was quite shocked on how well it was soaked in the essence and the mask itself didn't tear apart while putting it on my face. Some of the mask tend to tear apart while applying it so I gave this a passing grade for the material.

Fit wise, it fits nicely on my jaw line and forehead. Though the holes for the eyes are quite small. I kinda wished that they have a bit bigger holes for my eyes and they should cover up some of my chin. The cut out for my nose is perfect on my big nose and the area for my upper lips is also covered nicely.

Essence itself wise, after applying for 15 minutes as recommended, the sheet mask dried up a lot. I kinda hoped that they don't dry up as fast because I wanted to put on my sheet mask for a bit longer. I felt that it’s not giving me moisture to the skin anymore at that point. The scent was a bit lemony and it didn't linger throughout the application. I enjoyed the scent though.

Price - S$2 in the Face Shop counters.

Rating - I give this 2 out of 5 stars.

Overall effect -  It gives an okay hydration and moisture to the skin but it dries up pretty quickly so, it’s not giving me enough. I didn’t see an immediate brighten to the skin after using and I don’t see the glow after using. The Essence was absorbed to the skin very quickly but I still feel a bit of dryness and tightness. Overall, I find other brands’ masks are better than this particular one. Hopefully, the other masks from this range will be good for me. That’s why I won’t be repurchasing this mask from now on. Hopefully, other masks from this range will do me good.
Today I’m finally using the Face Shop’s Real Nature Lemon citron mask. I got asked how I manage to mask during my travels by @beautyrnrmag, it’s because my skin acts up when I don’t mask. It became very dull and very dry in my dry areas while very oily in my T-zone very quickly and to some extreme. I also really enjoy masking while reading some books or manga! It’s like a-me-time for me. That’s my motivation for masking while travels. Aside my answers, let’s review this mask. 🤔 Mask material - it has a thin cottony sheet mask that is soaked in sssence 🤔 Fit - it fits nicely on my jaw line and forehead.
