Etude House Skin Note Deep Moisturizing Hydrogel Mask – Review

Skin Note by Etude House is range of hydrogel masks to give five different skin benefits; deep moisture, lifting, brightening, pore tightening and calming. I will be reviewing the deep moisturising mask.

This mask has hyaluronic acid and seaweed extracts in it to provide intense moisture into the skin. Unlike most sheet masks it is not made of bio-cellulose or fabric, but instead of hydrogel which is made of gelatin mixed in with the essence.

The mask comes in two halves. It is very slippery and delicate to handle so I wouldn’t recommend using this if you’re in a hurry.

As you can see from the picture below the bottom half of the mask was a very good fit, the top half wasn’t as good. Also the mask kept slipping down my face.

After 20 minutes I took the mask off and massaged the remaining essence into my skin.

What I like about this mask is the hydrogel texture. It is extremely cooling and unlike fabric masks this allows 100% mask-to-skin contact. Secondly my skin felt buttery soft after using this mask and deeply hydrated.

I have read that hydrogel masks are better for essence absorption than fabric sheet masks, but not as effective compared to bio-cellulose sheet masks. I also read that hydrogel masks can cause irritation, so avoid this if you have sensitive skin.

I will continue to use this mask and the other ones in the Skin Note range because it left my skin really soft and hydrated. At around £3.18 each they are slightly more expensive then the regular Etude House masks, but it is a step up if you’re looking to get more serious about your skin care.
