Etude House 0.2 Therapy Air 10 Pack Face Mask Set: Green Tea

Recently, sheet masks are fast becoming one of my favourite ways to have downtime. They are one of the most popular beauty products on the Asian market, as well as easy to apply, easy to remove and above all doesn't require any tugging of the skin. Plus for the price for some single sheet masks, they can work out to be a cheap treat for your skin with added benefits! 

One of my favourite brands of sheet mask is Etude House. I just find their sheet masks are packed with product and they aid my skin so well when its lacking in lustre and needs a pick me up. The current sheets mask I use are the Etude House 0.2 Therapy Air 10-Piece Variety Mask. 

These sheet marks are available in single sachets, however, for £13.95 I couldn't resist going for their 10-piece set, offering a variety of sheet masks which help with brightening, moisturising and more. Plus, to help aid you in choosing the right mask for your skin, I'll be going through each mask one-by-one and sharing my thoughts on their results. So, to start with I'll be reviewing the Green Tea sheet mask as I have been buying and using this particular sheet mask a lot, and found it has helped in aiding my skin so well ever since having a bad reaction to the My Scheming Blackhead Removal Mask. You can read about my experience here

To begin with, the 0.2 Therapy Air Masks are hypo-allergenic sheets that won't irritate the skin. They deliver 7-free essence to the skin directly through the 0.2mm air sheet. They have also passed the sensitive panel test, have water purified through their 6-step filtration system, have a 1 to 2 EWG green grade which is an American non-profit environmental organisation all about evaluating chemicals and ingredients used in cosmetics. They are also free from the 7 skin irritating ingredients of Imidazolidinyl, Urea, Polyacryamide, Trethanolamine, Mineral Oil, Silicon Oil, Pigment and Fragrance. As well as with the 0.2mm sheet mask, this allows for your skin to breathe more comfortable through the remarkable air-penetration and lastly, they use natural essence oils to make you and your skin happy.

These face masks also come part of a 3 Essence labelled category. These 3 Essence categories are; The Moist Water Type Essence, The Ampoule Type Essence and lastly, The Emulsion Type Essence. These all deliver a different outcome with the moist water type face masks being absorbed lightly and freshly into the skin to refresh the skin. The Ampoule Type Essence absorbs into the skin mildly but brings powerful moisturisation and lastly, The Emulsion Type Essence absorbs into the skin smoothly with added nutrition. I like the idea behind the masks being categorised as not only does it allow for you to decide which masks suit your skin type/skin problem better but it also allows for you to try a variety of these masks to see how one differs to the other.

As I mentioned previously, I've been trialling and testing the green tea sheet mask for a few months now, especially after getting a bad reaction after using The Scheming Blackhead Removal Mask a few month back. Also, because so many have raved about the benefits of green tea both externally and internally, I thought it was a good time to see whether it worked on more severe issues than what I originally have.

After using the blackhead removal mask, I ended up getting bad dry patches on the sides of my nose just above my lips as well as a section on my chin. I found no amount of exfoliating or moisturising was helping, so I had to delve deeper into my stash to try and find something that could help heal my skin back to its original state. Having had a good reaction from sheet masks when my skin needed a little pick me up, I thought about putting this particular mask to the test to see whether it could help with the aiding of my skin, by bringing moisture back into those specific dry areas. This particular sheet mask sits in the Moist Water Type Essence category, offering light and fresh absorption to the skin. When applied to the skin it feels cooling (I recommend letting them sit in the fridge 24 hours before you use it as it feels so much nicer on the skin!), the mask sat comfortably on my face without much fuss. Also, due to the mask having quite a thin texture, it allowed for my skin to feel as though it wasn't getting claustrophobic with product so essentially had room to breathe whilst at the same let the product do its work. After I had sat with the sheet mask on my face for the recommended time and then removed it, I noticed where I had my dry patches they felt a lot less dry and as though they had, had a major moisture boost. However, this sheet mask alone did not aid at helping the dry patches disappear completely, but after using this mask a couple of times a week alongside my normal skincare routine, I did notice that the dry patches started calming down a lot quicker. As for the rest of my face which didn't need a lot of aiding in moisturising and soothing, I did notice that it helped pick my skin up by making it a lot smoother, which allowed for my makeup to sit more nicely on my skin, as well as allowed for my other skincare products to sink into the skin a lot better.
