Skin type: Normal to dry
I am back today with yet another skincare review for you guys. This one is the Honey And Lavender Sheet Mask from Nykaa. So let’s jump right into the post and see how was my experience with this one. Keep on reading…
What The Brand Claims: Known worldwide as a ‘magic potion’, Honey extracts act as a natural humectant that not only reduces the appearance of scars, but also keeps it soft and smooth. Touted for centuries, Lavender extracts soothe and heal irritated skin by gently cleansing it. These potent ingredients come together to allow you to imbibe your skin with natural moisture and a calming experience.
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 Honey And Lavender 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 instantly 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 leaves it 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 prominent Lavender scent that stays till the mask is on and then fades away. The product can be easily found on Nykaa’s website as well as in Nykaa stores.

Concluding Thoughts: Nykaa Honey and Lavender Sheet Mask effectively 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 has a prominent Lavender scent. 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,
