Mask of the Week: Holika Holika Pure Essence Mask Sheet in Cucumber

You know when you're THISCLOSE to free shipping and you throw in something rando to get you over that threshold?

Allow me to introduce you to my threshold meeting purchase, the Holika Holika Pure Essence Mask Sheet. I purchased these from eOpenMarket. At $2.17 for 3 pieces, they were the perfect addition to my order.

This was one drippy mask!! I opened the packet to get the rest of the essence, as I normally do, and there was a FLOOD! Just kidding but only slightly. There was enough essence for my arms, shoulders, legs...you get the point!

I don't normally post my whole routine with a sheet mask, but I thought it might be helpful to see what I paired it with and what I was going for here.

The theme was hydration!! (Other times it is anti-aging, soothing, redness reducing, pore minimizing, etc, but hydration is 99% of the time). I washed my face 2x (not shown), and then used my Secret Key FTE (First Treatment Essence), then TonyMoly Nutra Energy Toner, Skinfood Lettuce Essence, Agenist Elivate Serum, The Body Shop Aloe Eye/Lip, and then applied the mask...and then coated my body in the excess essence!

20 minutes later, this soggy mask hadn't dried (at all) but I removed it and rubbed in (even more of) the remaining essence. My skin was hydrated, no doubt...almost saturated! I chose to use a Cera-based moisturizer as they tend to help hold in the stuff below it (36 coats of essence).

I did wake up with saturated and hydrated skin, so I will certainly use up the other 2 masks I have when I need a (serious) dose of moisture. Have you tried this brand?

Lacey
