NO:HJ Banana SSUL Mask Pack with Green Tea is a good sheet mask for basic hydration for all skin types. It is very cooling and soothing on the skin making it a perfect product for hot summer days. NO:HJ brand has created several successful products together with total fails. I am glad that this sheet mask turned out to be one of the great ones.

NO:HJ Banana SSUL Mask Pack with Green Tea has been laying around in my stash for a while now. I just couldn't pass the way it looks. To me the packaging is very uninviting as you really have zero clue what the heck it does. After using some Google-Shmoogle I figured out it was with Green Tea extract so I waited out till it was a warm day and finally tested this one out.
The sheet mask is very comfortable to wear as it is made of black cupra fabric. The essence inside is very watery and lightly fragranced. It does not smell of green tea directly. Instead, the scent is more fruity-floral but not offensive at all. The essence has a gel like texture and is very light and cooling on the skin. It is colorless and does not drip off the sheet mask.
The wearing time for this particular mask on a hot day is max 15 minutes. After that it starts drying out around the edges. It feels like this mask is targeted for teenage audience. The entire experience with the packaging, black cupra, fruity scent and basic hydrating and skin tone brightening ingredients give me that vibe. It is absolutely pleasant in use and can go as a great daily sheet mask for people with more oily skin. In case yours is sensitive or you don't tolerate cooling masks very well, you should probably skip this one. The cooling effect is achieved mainly throughout addition of alcohol to the ingredient list. In my opinion, unnecessary thing in this sheet mask but it is also barely noticeable, hence the positive "try it out" advice for all skin types.
NO:HJ Banana SSUL Mask Pack with Green Tea creates a very natural looking skin, leaves zero tackiness and is overall great for the purpose of basic hydration of the skin. A box of these would make it a great gift for a teenager. Overall, very decent, especially if you layer it under the make-up! Would I use it again? Sure, if I get these as a gift 🙂 For now I invest into more anti-aging skincare rather than basic hydrator masks.
