MISSHA Pure Source Cell Sheet Mask Mango has not wowed me but it didn't have to. Based on it's content it is meant for someone with much dryer skin than mine. I ran a test with this one and it was expected disappointment. If your skin is dry, you should be able to tolerate it much better.

MISSHA Pure Source Cell Sheet Mask Mango is a typical moisturizing mask for a dry skin It contains glycerin and fermented ingredients making it more suitable for colder weather or for dry to very skin holder. Since it's been quite cold lately I decided to give it a try and it didn't amuse me. It is simply not compatible with my skin type but despite that here is my full review on it.
The packaging of the Pure Source Cell Sheet Mask is beautiful. It combines beautiful ingredient images with sturdy, easy to open sachet that is matte white with some glossy speckles on it. Very beautiful and nice to hold in hand. Considering that this line is "the basic range", it carries around 20 different sheet masks each promoting one specific active ingredient which is typically a plant or fruit.
The sheet of the mask is very soft and is well saturated in white opaque essence. It is creamy in nature and has light essence consistency to it. If you rub the essence between the fingers you notice some oiliness happening. I was not quite sure wether this is what my skin wanted at the time of the test run but I ended up wearing it for 10 minutes. Just enough time to soften up my skin without overdoing it, otherwise my skin would end up very oily. Normal wearing time would be around 15-20 minutes for normal skin or 10 for someone with dry skin type. Adherence and fit were great as with every mask from this range. Sheet is quite supple and flexible to remain put on your face.
The end results felt very basic. MISSHA Pure Source Cell Sheet Mask Mango didn't moisturize my skin to the extent that I prefer. I ended up having moderately hydrated skin which was soft to the touch. Nourishing part of it is very prominent in comparison to other sheet masks from this range. I felt oiliness on my skin but it was expected from the moment I touched the essence. I'm glad I didn't have to go out at the day of testing otherwise I'd have to wash my face properly to de-grease it. It felt to me that it is very basic mask with somewhat unpleasing odor due to the noticeable fermentation smell to it. Once again, Mango version of MISSHA's Pure Source Cell Sheet Mask range is not a friend to oily skin.
