Today’s review is about 0.2mm Therapy Air Calendula sheet mask by Etude House. I’ve tried several sheet masks by Etude House and it was always a pleasant experience for me. This mask claims to be soothing and boosting radiance of the skin. I’ve got this mask from the monthly subscription box from the littlewonderland.nl webshop.

My experience:

I really like the packaging on this one. Very summery and fresh.  Once I took the mask out I saw the familiar nearly transparant sheet. These usually adhere very well to your skin so that you can still do something while sheet-masking. There is a lot of  off white  transparant gel-type essence left inside the bag. So much that it was enough to cover both of my legs. There is nearly no scent to the essence. I did appreciate that because lately I haven’t tried any masked that were non fragranced.

The fit and the size of the mask were perfect for the size and shape of my face.  As expected, adherence was excellent as well. After applying the mask onto my face I was cooking dinner and cleaned out the toy room of my baby girl and no piece of this mask came off my face.  I kept it on for full 2o minutes. By that time it started to dry out on the outer edges.

After taking it off and waiting for the essence to absorb I did notice that my red cheeks were calmed down and not red anymore. Same with the overall appearance of my skin. it did brighten my face and reduced the appearance of my pigmentation spots and freckles. Impressive! It also hydrated my skin very well. The only noticeable minus for me was the fact that the essence residue was tacky. Since I didn’t have to go anywhere I decided to keep it on.  After an hour or so tackiness subsided and my skin was left soft and felt nourished.

Pros:

+ Sulfate and paraben free formula
+ Great fit of the sheet
+ Good ingredients
+ Very hydrating
+ Evens out my skin tone and reduces pigmentation
+ Calmed down redness on my face
