The Face shop SHEET MASKS - Rice mask, lemon mask review

Hi everyone!

Today I am going to review these sheet masks from the South Korean popular brand The Face Shop. You can also read my review on The Face Shop BB Power Perfection (Miracle finish).

I ordered these sheet masks from Nykaa along with my HG BB cushion cover from The Face shop.
That time, these sheet masks were on discount and I got 5 masks free with the purchase of 5 masks. Hurray!

I am going to review the Rice sheet mask and Lemon sheet mask today.

About the product:
Both the sheets masks are for brightening the dull skin and imparting a healthy glow to skin.

MRP: 100 INR
Ingredients: (given in the pic above)
How to use: (shown in the pic above)

My experience:
I was very excited to use it as it was my first ever sheet mask. I like to do all such things with my skin in the night time because skin gets plenty of rest time and the effect of the product shows more on the skin after a good night's sleep. So, I cleansed my skin, sprayed my favorite toner from Forest Essentials and then applied the mask on my face.

My first impression of this sheet mask was not good. :( First of all, it was really wet and dripping everywhere while I was unfolding it (they should really pack it more conveniently). Then when I tried to adjust it on my face, it was not fitting properly no matter how hard I tried. (standard size? really? Is this how a girl's face looks like to you, my dear The Face Shop?). After giving up my impulse to set it right, I let it work on my skin for 15 minutes while occasionally patting on the mask to make my skin absorb it well. (I kept it for half an hour)

As instructed, I removed the mask, patted my face dry, and slept without washing my face. Next morning, I could notice that my skin looked slightly brighter but there was not a significant, noticeable change. This is quite understandable as we can't expect something miraculous with just one application.

But if I am spending 100 bucks on a mask, I really expect its effect to at least last a day or two! However, I can't say this in case of these sheet masks.

Overall, I would admit that these sheet masks are good, but results are average and temporary. (Can't say if the same opinion will be true, in case someone uses it regularly.)

1) Does what it claims but results may not be very visible.
2) Effect doesn't last for more than a day.

1) Contains fragrances.
2) Cumbersome to handle due to its sticky, dripping liquid.
3) Expensive if someone wants to use it regularly.
4) Doesn't give any much noticeable instant results.

Overall Verdict:
Give them a try if you get them on discount. Otherwise, I really didn't find anything special about these sheet masks.
(I have recently bought Sephora's sheet masks which are said to be very effective and will review them soon)

Will I recommend it?
Just for the fun or experiment sake, especially, if you are getting them on discount, yes.

Will I buy it again?

How to use

My experience
I ordered this shampoo bar a few months back along with some essential oils, after consulting the Soulflower team about my hair fall issue. But I never used it, as I could never have enough faith in a soap for properly cleansing hair.

Since shampoos were leaving my hair dry and causing hair fall, I thought of giving this shampoo bar finally a try. I followed the instructions written on the cover and rubbed the bar between my hands. I was surprised to see how well it had lathered. Then I applied and rubbed the lather on my hair and rinsed my hair with lukewarm water. 

For the first time, I did not feel the need to apply a conditioner! I did not use any serum to detangle my otherwise dry, frizzy hair. The best thing about this soap is, there are no preservatives or parabens or any chemical or fragrance. It is absolutely natural. However, it didn't stop my hair fall issue. So I have stopped using it on my hair.
Besides my sister in law used it and she didn't like it as it made her hair appear rough.

1) It is made of essential oils that help strengthen hair and stop hair problems.
2) Preservative free and natural
3) Cleanses hair well even if used after applying oil.
4) 100% organic 
5) Easily accessible
6) Works both as shampoo and conditioner.

1) Since it is a bar, it may dissolve fast. So to avoid wastage, cut a required amount of this shampoo bar and keep the remaining for later use.
2) The results are not consistent and same for everyone.

Will I recommend it?
Not exactly. Shampoos are still better.

Will I buy it again?
