Skin type: Normal to dry
I am back today with yet another sheet mask review for you guys! This one is the Ginseng And Apricot variant and is a new launch from Nykaa. So without further ado, let’s get into the detailed review and see how was my experience with this one. Keep on reading…
What The Brand Claims: Vouched for its rich content of Vitamin A, Apricot improves your skin tone and eventually reduces the appearance of scars and blemishes to give you a healthy skin. Ginseng, known for its great natural astringent properties, refreshes the dry skin by providing an energizing boost of nourishment. This duo of powerful ingredients works together to give you a blemish-free, youthful skin.
Packaging: Nykaa has done a great job with the packaging here! The sheet mask comes in a beautiful plastic cover that looks attractive and definitely catches one’s attention. It will fit right in your bag and is easy to carry around. As you tear open the outer cover, you will find the sheet mask inside. All the important details such as date of manufacturing, use-before date, directions to use, ingredient list and price are clearly mentioned at the back of the cover.
My Experience With The Product: Nykaa Ginseng and Apricot Sheet Mask is white in color and is very soft to touch. As you can see in the pictures, it is completely drenched in serum. However, I found the sheet to be really thin! In fact, one needs to be careful while unfolding; else it can easily tear off. I simply take the mask out and put it on my face. But you do need to slightly adjust it according to the shape of your face.
I found the size and fit quite similar to the Face Shop Sheet Mask. There is also some amount of serum left behind inside the packet, that can be applied on the hands and arms. As soon as you apply the mask, it relaxes the skin and soothes it down. I let it stay on till it dries out; which usually takes 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.
After removing the mask, I massage the remaining serum into my skin. Now the great thing about this product is that the serum beautifully gets absorbed and does not leave any greasiness behind. In fact, it feels quite lightweight and non-sticky, which is impressive! Talking about the effectiveness, it properly hydrates the skin and also removes dullness. The skin instantly feels soft, supple and thoroughly nourished.
I personally found Nykaa’s sheet masks better than the Face Shop ones in terms of effectiveness and results. Coming to the fragrance, this mask has a soft Apricot scent that I absolutely love! It is mild and would not bother sensitive noses at all. The product can be easily found on Nykaa’s website as well as in Nykaa stores.

Concluding Thoughts: Nykaa Ginseng and Apricot Sheet Mask thoroughly hydrates the skin and leaves it soft, supple and moisturized. The serum beautifully gets absorbed into the skin and feels lightweight and non-sticky. It is convenient to use as well as dispose of and the soft Apricot scent is really soothing. Unfortunately, it contains alcohol,which is a disappointment!
If sheet masks work for your skin, then this is definitely a great buy! In fact, I found this one better than the Face Shop ones. But you do need to use the mask regularly for a good amount of time to notice visible results and spend 100 bucks for a single sheet every time.
Till next time,
