It has been a while I write a blogpost about skincare. How is my readers going? I cannot say much to all of you, readers, on how apologetic I am on not updating my blog for so long. But, I will write again since I forgot how much I missed writing my posts on thing that I love. Although I stopped writing, but my love for skincare continued this whole time. Now I felt that I need to start writing again and I need to start sharing on what kind of products that I have been loving and what I have been facing these days.

Well, enough about the introductory long paragraph, let's start the review, shall we?

If you have not yet read my other reviews on the Etude House Sheet Mask line, this will be a continuation on the series that I have tried and loved. For this review, I would like to share with the argan version of the sheet mask.

It is a thick emulsion type serum that is infused with argan oil that moisturises the skin. Since I have dry skin, I thought I was going to enjoy the mask as it would moisturise the skin and help with our moisture barrier.
Ingredients: Water, Glycereth-26, Butylene Glycol, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Xylitol, Dipropylene Glycol, Glycerin, 1,2-Hexanediol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Ceramide NP, Alcohol, Coptis Chinensis Root Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Zingiber Officinale (Ginger) Root Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Fruit Extract, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Citrus Nobilis (Mandarin Orange) Oil, Pinus Palustris Oil, Juniperus Mexicana Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Hydrolyzed Jojoba Esters, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, C14-22 Alcohols, C12-20 Alkyl Glucoside, Glucose, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Cholesterol, Carbomer, Arginine, Xanthan Gum, Disodium EDTA, Ethylhexylglycerin (Source: here)
To my surprise, I find that the mask would moisturise my dry ass skin, with the current weather of having aircon temperature (around 16 degrees) it does not moisturise the skin well enough. 

The mask material is a thick cottony material that is thick in texture and a bit rough to the skin. It is much heavier than the moist water essence type sheet mask but because it is thicker, it is not easy to tear at all. Since it is thicker, it is easy to unfold and apply on the face.

The fit is okay. I like the eye and mouth cut outs better than Innisfree but the actual size in the sheet mask is smaller than the Innisfree so it didn't go until the edge of my forehead. It's okay but I wished they had a bit bigger masks. Once it is on, it won't budge till you decided to take it off. I tend to do my studies or write blogposts while I mask so it's always a time saver.

The essence is a milky consistency and there is 20ml of the essence inside the packet. Although there is 20ml of essence, most of the essence is sticked to the sheet mask so there is not much left inside the packet while using. Since it has a milky consistency, I like the fact that it is not as drippy so you can use them on the planes and such.

They recommend me to leave the mask on for 10-20 minutes. So, as usual, I left it on for 20 minutes and I was surprised to see that the mask is very easy to dry up. I was disappointed as they dry up so fast and that there is no leftover essence for me to reapply during the masking time.

Overall, I find that it does not moisturise the skin well enough and the sheet mask tend to dry out quite easily before the 20 minutes mark. I still prefer their moist water type sheet masks more than their ampoule type and therefore, I give it 3 stars.
