Skin type: Normal to dry
As you must be aware, Sheet masks are all the rave right now and everyone is going crazy over them! I reviewed the Blueberry Sheet Mask some time back and today I have with me another variant; that is the Pomegranate one. These masks form an essential part of the Korean skincare and are now being used all across the World. These are primarily serum-drenched sheets that you can instantly apply on the face. Lately, more and more brands have been coming up with these masks that contain different ingredients catering to different skin needs. So without any further ado, let’s get started and jump right into the review. Keep on reading…
What The Brand Claims: The elasticity and vitality mask sheet with Pomegranate essence, rich in Vitamins B1 and B2 and minerals, gives skin moist elasticity and clear vitality. (Drenched with emulsified moisturizing serum/Formula without added parabens).
Directions To Use: Wash face and apply toner. Pull out mask and carefully place on face. Remove after 10 to 15 minutes and pat face lightly to absorb remaining essence into skin.
My Experience With The Product: The Face Shop Real Nature Pomegranate Sheet Mask is white in color and is very soft to touch. As you can see in the picture below, it is completely soaked into the serum. I simply take the mask out and put it on my face. However, you do need to adjust it according to the shape of your face. I would also like to mention here that unlike some other variants, there was no serum left behind inside the packet in this case. Anyways, during summers, when my skin needs some extra relaxation, I even put it in the refrigerator for some time before using. I let it stay on till it dries out which is usually around 20-25 minutes. There is no need to wash your face afterwards since the whole point is to let the goodness of the serum seep into your skin.
As soon as I remove the mask, my skin instantly feels soft and moisturized. It provides a soothing effect and relaxes the skin. However, I did not notice any prominent tightening or firming of the skin. It also removes dullness and leaves the face refreshed. But in spite of massaging all the serum into the skin, my face felt slightly sticky. So I had no other option but to wash my face with plain water. I feel this mask would go well with most skin types and can be used all-year round. In addition, I did not notice any major visible glow, but just a subtle brightening up of the face. This mask has a mild pleasant scent that stays on for some time till it is placed on the face and then eventually fades off.
Now I know everyone is going gaga over these masks, but honestly I am not impressed! First of all, paying 100 bucks for a simple sheet does not appeal to me. Second, I did not notice any prominent glow or tightening of the skin. I still prefer my usual face masks that actually show some results. This just feels like a gel-dipped sheet that does not do much for my skin. For the sheet masks to actually show some visible results, you will have to use them regularly and for a considerable amount of time.

Do I Recommend This? Honestly, I am not really impressed with sheet masks. I feel these are just overhyped due to social media and I do not see myself spending 100 bucks for just a single sheet for a one-time use. I still prefer the traditional masks as they give better results on my skin. But this is definitely my personal preference. If you feel these masks work for you, then by all means go for it!
This mask is mess-free, easy to use and fits right in your bag. It is hydrating and beautifully moisturizes the skin. It removes dullness and leaves the face smooth and refreshed. But I did not notice any major glow or tightening of my skin. In addition, it does contain alcohol which is definitely a disappointment!
Till next time,
