Missha Real Solution Tencel Sheet Mask Glutathione has been discontinued (from the looks of it). I had it laying around for some time in my drawer dedicated to the skin brightening products. Today it was the time that I reached for it and I hove some positive and negative things to say about it. Since it has been launched several years ago, a lot of products from those days did contain bunch of harsh preservatives that are not skin frinedly. This mask is the fine example of my previous statement. Parabens, alcohol, fragrance e.t.c. But there is one but! It does an extremely good job at actually brightening my skin. I was very surprised to see the rapid result and I am still happy that I've tried it out.
The sheet of the mask is made of tencel cupra meaning that it can be stretched in order to make the fit better. The material is soft and supple. Fit is very comfortable and adherence is remarkably good as well. What I didn't expect is the subtle scent. MISSHA is known for fragrancing their products and most of their sheet mask do smell divine. In this particular case divine is a stretch for me. I smell baby powder. Not my favorite thing in the world but I am not against it.
Wearing time is 15+ minutes and the end results are quite satisfactory. Adherence and fit were excellent. Essence texture was what many may describe snot-like. Transparent, slightly sticky, liquidly runny snot. Oh well, nothing snottier than snail mucin products I've used 😉 Don't be scared of the latter description, it was just funny how the first thing popping in my head was "not guite snail-mucin like texture".
Missha Real Solution Tencel Sheet Mask Glutathione claimed to boost skin's hydration levels while brightening it. Check and check! I did find it pleasant on my skin despite the alcohol in the ingredient list which usually makes my face red AF... Not in this case. Instead, my skin was very soft to the touch, fine lines were diminished, it felt well hydrated and there was no sticky finish left on my skin upon full absorption. Good? Yes! Great? Emmm, not yet. But I am happy to report that it looks that has been replaced by new and way more skin friendly Mascure Glutathion mask. I will be giving the new version a go as well so stay tuned for upcoming reviews.
