It's Skin Power 10 Formula LI Mask Sheet has a great sturdy base of having good quality sheet mask, nice packaging, e.t.c. what it misses is quality essence. Sometimes you just have those masks where something is out of order and in case of the current product, it is definitely the essence! It just doesn't soothe anything. Instead, it is on the verge of irritating my skin due to the high alcohol content in it.

As I've mentioned before I am torn about It's Skin Power 10 Formula LI Mask Sheet mask. Everything concernig the quality of the skeet and outer packaging is glorious yet the essence is a total disaster on my skin. It did irritate my skin and made it look more red yet the active ingredients in it should promote the redness reduction and not vice versa. Fit, sheet, cut are perfect though!
The mask is a continuation in the Power 10 series that features several serums with active ingredients targeting specific skin concerns. In this case LI stands for Licorice which is famous for promoting healing and brightening skin. The essence is more of an ampoule kind and is entirely transparent. There is a major alcohol scent present which does not disappear through-ought the entire wearing time. If you try to ignore the alcohol fumes you may be able to notice light herbal Hanbang scent that is very pleasant. Texture is very light and if you apply the remaining essence on your hand it sinks in like it was never there.
Same story on the face. After 20 minutes of wear the sheet was getting a bit dry so I removed it. After a minute, my skin was entirely dry and it felt like I didn't use sheet mask at all even though my skin felt hydrated. It was not wa-wa-woom hydration, I'd call it moderate. My skin could use a layer of good hydrating HA ampoule or so. What did happen next was totally unexpected. After the mask was off my skin started to tingle and tighten. I saw my face turning bright pink color and warm. I did get that tragic reaction from the alcohol, my big enemy. Sometimes my skin is fine when it's at the end of the list of ingredients. In case of this mask it was on 4th place from the top so, yeah....
Anyhow, I did try it and the final verdict is that it is not for me. If you have sensitive skin and want something special in terms of a sheet mask, steer clear from this one. If your skin is oily, combo or normal, what you get is the full benefits from it + the cooling effect on the skin while wearing the mask. To those fortunate with acne prone skin, skip it guys, your acne may be aggravated instead the promised soothing. The sheet quality is superb and deserves another compliment!!!
