First of all looking at the ingredients I noticed that even though this mask was supposed to be super smoothing calming bomb it was somehow containing non skin friendly ingredients. Yes they are on the back of the list and yes it means there are very few o them, but I still find it weird.
The packaging of this new Etude House creation has the same vibe as the rest of the Therapy Air sheet masks. The mask inside is very thin and fully soaked with runny essence that is opaque white in color. There is very little smell to it and the only thing I can tell about the smell it is not unpleasant. There is some kind of sour note in there but it is yet again not offensive or repulsive to the nose.
The fit and adherence of the airy fit masks is superb. Same goes for this particular Madecassoside product. The fabric is very gentle and stretchy, it hugs the curves of the face well and fits like a glove. I was able to wear it for 20 minutes but it was also the max wear time for me. If I would use it again I would stop at 15 minutes. I don’t think I would buy it again though. The end results were barely noticeable and I would rather use a more effective mask instead. This one is unfortunately a pass for me.
+ Alcohol, paraben and sulfate free formula
+ Contains Arginine and hyaluronic acid
+ Rich in natural herbal ingredients and extracts
+ Moderately hydrating and cooling
– Hard to find within EU
– Airy fit packaging doesn’t always open up smoothly
– Very little results on my skin in terms of calming, moisture
– Contains Citral and Geraniol (not good for sensitive skin)
Thank you for reading!
