Name of Product :

It’s Real Squeeze Mask – Manuka Honey by Innisfree. 20 ml. Made in Korea.

Unique Ingredients/Material :

Manuka Honey : native to Australia and New Zealand, Manuka honey is extremely nourishing and healing for your skin. It is antibacterial, antimicrobial, anti inflammatory and has a lot of antioxidant properties. It’s sugar content halts the growth of microbes due to an enzyme called glucose oxidase which produces hydrogen peroxide. It’s pH is between 2 and 4.5, which is acidic enough to inhibit the growth of most microorganisms. It helps heal your skin by retaining moisture which prevents dryness, wrinkles and even acne.

From their website :

1. It’s real squeeze mask – manuka honey

Manuka honey from New Zealand’s manuka flowers has abundant nutrients for healthier skin.

2. Jeju green complex

The Jeju green complex consists of green tea, tangerine, cactus, camellia leaves, and orchids to keep your skin healthy.

3. Triple-layered sheet

This triple-layer sheet has a long-lasting moisturizing effect so that the essence can gradually be absorbed into the skin.

Pros :

  • One piece mask
  • Fairly good amount of essence to cover face, neck and arms
  • Cooling and pleasant on skin
  • Was able to keep the mask on whilst doing physical work – walking about etc
  • No irritation or tingling
  • Skin felt hydrated and bright afterwards
  • Inexpensive mask

Cons :

  • Does not fit the face well. Too long vertically = although not enough to cover the nose completely. Only half the nose was covered. And short horizontally – not enough to reach close to the ears.
  • Contours the face somewhat okay – lots of creases – could not smooth out all – tried to pull and even out but the mask tore a little.

My Review :

⅘ stars from Yashoda. I would repurchase as it has good effects and is inexpensive. 3.5/5 stars from Arlini who would not repurchase.

Packaging : Attractive packet – very beautiful picture of honey on a spoon and a honeycomb. Beautiful colours used and able to capture the beauty of honey. Easy to open. I was very skeptical about “manuka” honey because it’s not listed in the ingredient section despite being in the title but I contacted Innisfree who confirmed that they are using manuka honey in this mask. Very concise and clear instructions in English with graphics provided although the hydration chart was in Korean so could not understand it.

Product : One size soft mask – very well saturated. Thinner texture sheet, both of us actually tore the side while contouring it to my face. Arlini found that the mask was too long vertically, although not enough to cover the nose completely – only half the nose was covered. Also short horizontally – not enough to reach close to the ears. Arlini also felt that the mask quality was poor while Yashoda enjoyed it. It does have a scent – smells bitter like a mix between their grapefruit and honey ingredients. Felt really nice on – cooling, relaxing.

I kept on for 40 minutes.

After removal : My face was BRIGHT, even tone, very hydrated. Sticky/dewy finish as advertised on packaging but was easy to apply other products overtop.

Following day : Skin remained bright but in terms of hydration, it wasn’t anything extraordinary.
