I’ll be honest, I’m a lazy person and I don’t always follow a decent routine at every stage of my life. But one thing I always do whenever I’m not in the mood for the whole routine is sheetmasking !
I was introduced to this mask by my skincare bff who swears by it! Naruko is commonly seen in our local drugstores but I just didn’t noticed it as I indulged more in Korean sheet masks. BUT everyone has ‘that’ a-ha moment and changed their minds and thus I was convinced (and easily influenced smh) so why not?! :D
Little did I know that this sheet mask would change my world

My holy grail sheet mask! I think I manage to finish about 2 boxes of it already. I love how it smells and the mask is in black-colored sheet which I find very interesting. I also love how the mask hold most of its essence but is not drippy because I don’t have to waste or feel the need to slather the excess essence all over my body LOL!
It’s efficient in cooling and soothing my irritated skin too! I love to put the mask in the fridge before use for an amazing cooling effect! This feels extremely relaxing on hot days where I tend to get oily easier. My skin drinks up the essence instantly because of the runny and lightweight texture (which my skin super loves!)
My skin appears clear and plump after masking, with no sticky or greasy finish. I can happily finish with a moisturizer or a sleeping mask to lock in all the goodness. This mask helps to minimize the look of my pores and help control my sebum production too. It also helps to diminishing the redness caused by heat and active acnes, while helping to speed up the healing process too.
I also wear before makeup to make my makeup last till evening time before the oils break down my foundation. Overall, I think you can pretty much tell how much I love this mask, not to mention it is easy to get! I often get them through Hermo whenever they were on sale :)
