For some time I was oogling at these pocket pack masks from the MISSHA brand. I really like the concept of having several types of masks in little pouches that last you for 2-3 times. For me it means that I can test several products out without spending a fortune on full-size items. As well as I am not stuck afterwards with a full jar of something I may potentially not like.




For a while these were sold out in NL online stores so I was waiting patiently until they got restocked. I purchased 8 types to try out out of which 5 were sleeping packs, 1 peel-off pack, 1 exfoliating pack and 1 clay pack. I grouped them according to the instructions on the packs. More detailed description and my experience is are at the end of this post.

My experience:
All of the masks are definitely worth trying. Each one of them preformed well on my skin, didn’t make me breakout or  stick to my sheets. For me, my personal top 3 from this range are the Lotus, Rice and Green Tea packs.

Lotus pocket pack got me after 1 use! My heart melted at how easy it was to remove off my face. There was no pull or burn on my skin as it happens sometimes with the pore strips or those black pore masks. On the contrary, My skin felt hydrated and soft after use. I did feel that it did strip the oil off my face, so I did moisturize my skin with essence after this mask.

Rice pocket mask is quite mild exfoliant for me. It had a pleasant, non-offensive smell to it and was easy to spread around my face. I would reach for it for sure on the days that my skin is more sensitive than normal.

Green tea sleeping pack performance was as moisturizing and hydrating as other masks. I picked it over the others because I really like the yummy smell of it. All of the sleeping masks I’ve bought are quite similar in their action so I would opt for choosing the one whom fragrance you like the most.

Clay mask was as effective as any other clay masks. It purified my skin, left it nice and oil-free. Smell of this one is quite good too. Was worth trying but I doubt I would repurchase this one again. I have too many clay masks that to better job at moisturizing my skin on top of doing what clay usually does.

Pros:
+ Affordable and  good quality products
+ Big variety to choose from
+ Nicely fragranced
+ Peel-off pack is not painful to remove
+ Exfoliator pack is very gentle, hence suitable for the sensitive skins
+ Perfect for 2-3 times use
+ Ideal for traveling due to the handy format of these
+ Resealable packaging which ensures that the content stays sanitary
+ Suitable for all the skin types

Cons:
– Sleeping packs are kind of all the same except the scent
– Clay pack is not standing out from the whole bunch
– Manufacturer’s description in English makes me very sad. For such a big company  as MISSHA they should not Google-translate the text that they put on the label
