Etude House Aloe Mask



At my last haul made in Megamall, I bought the Aloe Mask from Etude House. It is actually my first attempt to use a facial mask and I do not have the slightest clue as to what to expect. I just followed the directions at the back of the pack; but didn't learn much since most of the info are in Korean.

It has claims of containing Aloe Extract. The recommended interval for mask is every 2-3 days and it should be left for 20-30 minutes. It says that its moisturizing aloe content will help prevent acne and soothe skin.

I cannot make a final review for this product because I have only used it once. I cannot buy another one again because Etude House branches are quite far from where I live or work; but I managed to funa dupe for this product which is a bit cheaper and I'd try reviewing that one instead after using it for like a month or two perhaps.


While wearing the mask. Look at the hollow space on the side of my nose


As per the structure of the facial mask, I think it is not meant for people with snub nose (which is the signature structure of the Filipino nose). If you'd see my picture while wearing the mask, it has a hollow space at the side of my nose. It did not fit my face perfectly because of that.

After using the Facial Mask.


After I've used the facial mask, I felt the soothing and cooling feeling it gave my face and the day after I've used it, I felt that my face has gotten smoother and more moisturized. However, on the next day, my face had a mini-break out. I had a pimple at the end of my left brow, and a few small ones on my forehead. Is it supposed to happen? 

Used Facial Mask

The smoothing and moisturized feeling is great but I guess it was too much for my skin to handle. I hope that the dupe I bought would be better.

If you've got a better experience with the Etude House Aloe Mask, please do share it. 

Till next post! ;)
