The Face Shop has always been well known for the wide range of sheet masks they sell. While they have a range of face masks made of natural ingredients, they also have a range of face masks made of certain chemical solutions that are specially derived to rejuvenate the skin.

From the time I turned into a skincare junkie, among a couple of brands, The Face Shop has always been a constant skincare companion for me. Their masks have almost always had desired effects for me at least. So today I’m going to review the Face Shop’s Soothing Face Mask from their The Solution collection. Without further delay, let us go ahead and find out how it worked for me!

My Experience with The Face Shop The Solution Soothing Face Mask

Packaging

This sheet mask comes in a white colored packet. The packet has a smooth matte kind of texture. The package has a picture of a test tube filled with a purple colored liquid which is indicated as Madecassoside. Inside the packet, the mask is folded in nicely with a film sheet, which is the same size as the mask. The mask needs to be peeled off from the film and then applied on the face. Also, the packaging is strong and small enough to be put into your handbag. So you can easily carry it anywhere.

Consistency

The serum that the mask has is thin like solutions usually are. But it isn’t runny. It sits on your skin but also does not stick to it. The mask is also really light, just as the brand states. So it feels very light on the skin.

Effects

So far I’ve used two of these and both times, it has given me great results.  The serum did not feel heavy or sticky on my skin. It made my skin feel cool, smooth and clean. The mask does not have any strong fragrance. Just a light tingly smell that is pleasant.  The effects of the mask last about two days. So using it twice or thrice a week is sufficient to make your skin healthy and also to keep any kind of irritation at bay.

Extra Tip

Here’s an extra, fun tip for you all. Most sheet masks have more serum than necessary in their packaging. Once you’ve finished applying the mask, take a small bowl and squeeze out the rest of the serum from the mask into the bowl. Then clean off the serum sticking to the insides of the packet as well, into your bowl. Then apply that on your neck, and hands, till the elbows. Make the most of what you have!

Though I haven’t used one yet, I think these are best to use when traveling or having a long journey to remove the exhaustion from the face at least if not rest of the body. Thanks for the review. I was wondering to buy one :love
