Smell/Texture – This has a very prominent strong alcohol scent. They come in different variants and depending on the variant its either in the form of a milky viscous cream or a thick viscous gel type.

Price – bought this in an aritaum store when i was in seoul at around w1,500 each

Verdict – This is an overnight sleeping pack. At first i thought this is an essence as the packaging states”essence pouch pack”, turns out its not lol! I only used the honey variant and as you can see in the above mentioned ingredient list there are no notable ingredients that will make me breakout, but the other variants have comedogenic ingredients. It seems that this one gave me breakouts. I think its due to the high alcohol content. Upon application you can really smell a bit of honey then the alcohol is so overpowering it does not go away. Only used this twice then it gave me breakouts so this one currently goes to my neck.

Smell/texture – light scented roses, milky creamy liquid cotton sheetmask

Verdict – masking experience lasted for 20minutes. No extra essence left on packet. Fit was just ok as well. Unfortunately this one gave me breakouts. I dont know what it is with mamonde products but their products are a bit harsh for me.

Smell/texture – strong alcohol scent, clear watery, no essence left from the packet, very thick cotton sheetmask

Price – 90% off sale w1,900 for 10pcs + shipping at roseroseshop

Verdict – by far the worst sheetmask I have tried. Fit is horrible, the cutout of the nose and mouth are way off. The cotton material is way too thick. I can seriouly scare off any mouse anytime, maybe this would be perfect for halloween. lol!!! Sheetmask dried off in as little as 10 minutes and oh man! the strong alcohol i really cant take it. I would rather not use anything at all than have this.
