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.

My package arrived ^_^

The first items I got were a plain white slouchy t-shirt (http://www.yesstyle.co.uk/en/info.html/pid.1035913657) made of distressed material and some silver rings (http://www.yesstyle.co.uk/en/info.html/pid.1035145978), nothing special, so I didn’t take a picture. The next t-shirt I bought has this adorable mickey mouse print on it, the material is so soft and it is really well made. Think I’ll pair this with some boyfriend jeans and a maxi cardigan for a casual, relaxed look.

Next I bought this navy mini dress with the lace arms. It’s really nice for the summer, but comes up extremely short, and I’m only 5’1″ !

 Next I bought 5 Dark Circle Intensive Care Eye Masks from My Beauty Diaries. They are meant to treat dark under-eye circles. I think I’ll do a product review on these soon.

I got a pack of 5 Skin Note! Deep Moisturizing Hydrogel Masks from Etude House. I used this whilst I was in Korea and they are so hydrating and cooling on the skin. Again, I’ll review these soon.

And finally, can we take a minute just to observe the sexiness of these shoes….

I’m usually a UK size 3, I bought a 35 which was apparently meant to fit, but they come up a tiny bit small at the back. Doesn’t matter I’ma still rock them. The quality of these shoes aren’t great, the heel is made of a foamy material and the upper material isn’t very sturdy, but it is very comfortable and should survive at least one season.

Overall, I’m so delighted with the service from Yesstyle, I’ve already got a shopping cart full of stuff I want to buy on Payday. Many of the products on the website are already in stock, however some of them have to be ordered by Yesstyle from the different suppliers. This means that it can take around 7-14 days for your items to come into stock and on rare occasions they won’t be able to get your item, in which case you are given  a full refund. The customer service is impeccable, I get constant email updates if my item hasn’t been stocked and when my order is going to be shipped. There is also a loyalty rewards system that allows you to get discount on future purchases.

If you are planning to buy from this website, please make sure you read the product description with regards to size. I do find that the clothes are made for more shorter and petite frames. Also make sure you really observe the pictures to see the quality of the item before you buy it, it is easy to get carried away with all the cute clothes, bags and shoes without paying attention to details.
