For me, face masks remind me of being 12 or 13, at sleepovers. Spending hours in Superdrug poring over the promises of each packet of gunk that you'd happily spread over your face, until it cracked and crumbled off. It turns out that Korean face masks are a little different, and pretty terrifying to look at when you're wearing one. I decided to try out Etude House's Pearl Extract face mask which promised a natural skin glow.
Etude House Pearl Extract Face Mask
Cost: These are only ₩1,000, which is about 60p. Also, Etude House will sometimes give you heaps of these for free when you buy something else from them.
Prettiness: There are lots and lots of different types of these face masks, I'd decided to try the pearl extract, but there's also pomegranate, lemon grass and blueberry. Lots of nice smells to try out. Although, I think the face masks are anything but pretty when they're on.
Usability: These are really easy to use, the mask is like a thin towel that's covered in the product, you take it out of the packet and put it onto your face. There are eye, nose and mouth holes to help you line it up. Leave it on for 20-30 minutes and then rinse it off afterwards. Although, sometimes there is a little too much of the solution on the mask, which drips, so use a towel to stop it going on your clothes.
