It's Skin Power 10 Formula VC Mask Sheet has been doing OK on my skin but it still didn't impress me. Considering the price tag of it, this mask should have been doing "a lot" and little bit more than that but, to my disappointment, the end result was close to 'nada' as they say in Spain. It looks like there was very little effort put into formulating this range of masks and everything was done in a hurry.

It's Skin Power 10 Formula VC Mask Sheet has a vitamin C rich formula that is meant to be used on all skin types as it is a brightening mask which offers all benefits of antioxidants. The packaging is very sturdy and cute and I love the bright yellow lemon color of it. The packaging is square and not big making it handy to take with you on a vacation. The sheet itself is made of a very soft cotton fabric and feels nice and soft against the skin.
The actual essence is transparent and has a watery ampoule texture. Nearly all of it is absorbed into the sheet leaving very little in the pouch. The scent of this sheet mask is quite strong and it mainly smells like alcohol solution. Even though the fragrance is listed as the last ingredient, none is detected by my nose. The essence absorbs fast and the wearing time is 20-25 minutes. It has a very nice slip to it and mask is a pleasure to wear.
After removing the sheet, my face is left moisturized and fresh looking. Main claim-brightening is achieved flawlessly and my skin is more even in tone and my redness is reduced. Despite the high content of alcohol, This particular mask did not irritate my skin much. Still, anyone with sensitized skin should steer clear from this mask as it may provoke your skin instead of reducing the redness. My face is very nice and smooth to the touch and there was no residue left on the skin after all of the essence has absorbed.
Honestly, this particular mask doesn’t impress me at all. It does deliver decent results and meets it’s claims but for some reason I don’t feel like I need it in my life. I can achieve same results bu using a good vitamin C serum without adding risk of irritation on my skin caused by alcohol in this product. Maybe it is because when it comes to antioxidant protection, there are several vitamin C serums and treatments out there that deliver potent highly concentrated formulas and outstanding results which sheet mask can't/not supposed to deliver.
