Rich in antioxidants and vitamins, green tea has undoubtedly been a staple ingredient boasted in many skincare products. The most famous being the iconic product line from Innisfree (the Green Tea Seed Serum, anyone?) which encompasses cleansers, toners, moisturisers and of course, sheet masks. So, without further ado, let’s see how this humble mask performs, shall we?
This refreshing water-type real mask, enriched with fresh moisture from delicately fragrant green tea, keeps dry skin moisturized.

Normal white plastic packet with a soothing image of bright green tea leaves scattered against a backdrop of a pure white tea set. There are both Korean and English details on the back of the packet, denoting an overall description, directions, and the list of ingredients.
HOW TO USE:
- After cleansing, use toner to refine skin texture.
- Unfold and place the mask on the face, avoiding eye and lip area.
- Leave on for 10-20 minutes.
- Discard the mask and gently pat for further absorption.
If you’re familiar with the scent of Innisfree’s Green Tea product line, then you can expect the exact same fresh, sweet-herbal notes for this mask. I personally don’t enjoy this signature scent that much (a bit too cloying) but for this mask, the scent does dissipate while masking and is quite mild compared to Innisfree’s usual Green Tea line, so it’s fine.
Innisfree classes this as a “refreshing, water-type mask” which I find very true. The essence is clear and has a lightweight watery consistency which easily absorbs into the skin for a smooth, non-tacky, hydrating finish.
Soft, very thin sheet mask made of eucalyptus fibres. Fits facial contours well and is easy to adjust. There is no mask backing, but the mask is easy to remove and unfold from the packet. Adherence is good, and it does not feel like it would drop-off anytime, even while moving about.
Interestingly, this mask also comes with an ‘Easy-Peel-Design’ where there is a “handle” on the top of the sheet mask to make it more convenient to apply and remove. Spot it in the mask fit below!
MY SKIN TYPE:
Sensitive (prone to redness and irritation), combination-dry, acne-prone and dehydrated.
OVERALL THOUGHTS & EXPERIENCE:
If you’re looking for a fuss-free, hydrating sheet mask suitable to use for daytime masking or just need an extra hydration boost for a heavier night-time ritual, definitely give Innisfree’s Green Tea My Real Squeeze Mask a chance. And if you’re a fan of their famous Green Tea Seed Serum (or anything from that line), you’d definitely enjoy this.
Although I’m not a huge fan of Innisfree’s signature Green Tea line (primary due to the cloying scent), this mask was a nice pick-me-up to soothe my senses. I could definitely feel my parched skin just soak up all that lightweight hydration, and results-wise, it’s not bad. While it’s not mind-blowing, sometimes simplicity is best, and this has worked well as a hydration booster for its very affordable price point.
