Etude House I Need You, Lemon! Mask Sheet review

The bunny tried out her first mask from Etude House's I Need You range - the I Need You, Lemon! Mask Sheet and here's my experience with it.

As always, the products from Etude House have cutesy looking packaging and the mask is no exception. The vibrant yellow color was what attracted me to it in the first place.

The mask is supposed to brighten and clarify skin. Lemon extract is pretty high on the ingredient list. It also contains extracts from a number of other citrus fruits such as grapefruit, orange and lime. Unfortunately, alcohol is kinda at the top of the list as well and it's linked to damaged skin cells and dry skin.

The mask has a lemony scent that's quite refreshing. The smell is pretty faint, which is good since I'm supposed to be smelling it for 30 mins when it's on my face.

The sheet itself is significantly thicker than My Beauty Diary or My Scheming Beauty masks. It feels cottony, somewhat resembling a wet wipe. It's a bit drippy when I took it out of the packet.

My major complain is with the fit, or in reality, the lack thereof! The mask was cut very wide and had very big eye holes. It looks like it's made for Hello Kitty's face - shorter in length and longer in width. Also, since it's kind of thick, it doesn't fold very well. Also, due to the lousy fit, the essence kept getting into my eyes and it really stings!

The mask doesn't fit me very well...
As for effectiveness, I noticed that my skin was more moisturized after the mask application. As for the claims of the mask to brighten and clarify skin tone, the mask made only a very very tiny difference. My skin was a tinsy bit more radiant, but there was no effect on my acne scars.

The mask retails at Etude House stores at $2 per piece. Repurchase? I don't think so...
