Innisfree It's real squeeze mask Pomegranate is one of those masks that is great for daily use in order to provide skin with necessary basic hydration. It has a faint fruity scent to it that lingers only in the pack and does not remain on the mask. Any dehydrated skin will benefit from using this gem or any other mask from this entire It's real squeeze mask series.

Innisfree It's real squeeze mask Pomegranate has a nice packaging that is often easy to open and is made of the same material as the rest of the masks from the same line. Sometimes mask is way high up inn the sachet making the opening process very troublesome. I have to shake and wiggle it a lot or use scissors to open it. The sheet is made of felt-type fabric and is quite absorbing despite it’s thinness. Biggest downside of such sheet is that it may tear easily when yo try to stretch it over the face. The essence in this mask is lightly scented and transparent. Light fragrance of this essence is resembling fruit cocktail and doesn't linger on the sheet. Essence is not sticky nor oily either which is a great bonus.
Another downside of this mask for me is the fit of the sheet. No surprise there, the entire series is cut in the same factory and just doesn’t suit my face much. This time I was too lazy to cut it to fit around my eyes and nose so you can actually see the true fit on the picture below. Since fabric does not stretch much. I kept it on for 15 minutes and tapped in the residue. Normal wearing time with these sheet masks is max 20 minutes. On hotter days it is noticeably shorter and the maximum wear time is around 15 minutes.
It is very light sheet mask that leaves no residue on the skin. The essence sinks into my skin within 2 minutes and there is zero trace of it left on the surface. Very good news for me as I can use it prior to doing my make-up. The mask provided me with proper hydration which I like a lot. If you are looking for something that is light yet very hydrating for basic daily use, get few of the masks from this series to begin with. I will review several of the It's real squeeze mask in the nearest future because I love to use them in AM routine on hot summer days.
I did test out this entire range from Innisfree and Pomegranate mask is okay when compared to the rest. My personal favorites are bija and green tea versions. If you want to soothe and cool down your face, place it in the fridge 20 min before application and you will benefit from extra refreshment on your skin. If your skin is reacting to added fragrance, you should proceed with care. Considering the affordable price, if the glove fits, this entire series is perfect for daily use.
