Review | Etude House I Need You, Lemon! Mask Sheet

Monday, 25 November 2013

Hello, lovelies! How's your Monday? For me, it was really tiring so to replenish myself with my version of elixir of life, I went to my new favourite hot spot, which is the newly opened Starbucks in Avenue K, next to KLCC and enjoyed a cup of Soy-based Green Tea Latte while sitting in a corner, watching other people as they come in and out of the cafe, drinking their coffees, having fun chatting with their friends, or having some business meetings. Oh, yeah. I love doing this once in a while.

Anyway, I was talking with some friends today about our favourite mask sheets and so far, I've only tried those from TheFaceShop and Etude House. Oh, also from in-house brand Watsons, and Garnier Light Complete mask sheets. 

So while we were comparing the goodness of our choice of favourites, one of them actually came up with a challenge, which is to do a mask sheets marathon i.e. using mask sheets every 2 to 3 days religiously. Since we've decided to do that, I guess it's natural for me to post all about it in here for the next two weeks as I have prepared 6 mask sheets for this marathon and all of them are from Etude House I Need You! sheet mask line. 

Since I already posted my review on Pearl Extract, today I'll be reviewing the Lemon.

Packaging:



Basically, all the mask sheets from this I Need You! line has the similar concept of using illustration of the main ingredient on the packet. 
Same goes for this one, using yellow as the main hue with those cute little people extracting the juice out of the fruit, giving the idea that the mask sheet's main ingredient are taken from the real fruit and not synthetically produced. 

Verdict:


The essence are in milky colour. 



Overall, this mask passes all the things I expected. It gives me the instant bright right after using it, the essence got absorbed into my skin like few minutes after I took off the mask after leaving it on for about half an hour. It does moisturizes as well, and my skin felt so soft and supple afterwards. 

I still think that the mask fit my face almost perfectly, like you guys can see from above. I'm content with that. Though I might pulled the sheet resulting in the not-so-perfect-fit on my nose area. 

I love the lemony scent. Totally refreshing!

Final Verdict: 5/5. 

This mask sheet is retailed at RM6.90 but I got this during the Etude House Buy 1 Free 1 Merdeka Sale from 30th August to 1st of September so I got 2 at 1 one price.

So I guess that's it! This is 1 out of 6 before completing this challenge so I guess I'll see you guys next post! Annyeong~
