Last week I shared my review on my December Ipsy Glam bag and in my bag I received two sheet masks from Purlisse. Today I’m going to be sharing my thoughts on these sheet masks. I had never heard of this brand before so, as usual, I was excited to give them a try and see how well they worked. One of these masks is for nourishment and one is for rejuvenating. I was especially interested in the nourishing one since my skin has been super dry this winter. One of them definitely made a difference while the other…not as much. To find out which worked better just keep on reading…
The sheet mask themselves are a bit on the thicker side as opposed to some other sheet masks that are thinner. I find that I usually like the thinner sheet masks because they tend to fit better and stay on since they are more lightweight. However, these still fit my face and stayed in place quite well which was nice. Both of these sheet masks were well saturated and had plenty of serum inside for two uses. I just squeeze the excess amount into the package as I’m removing the mask. Making sure the mask is still quite wet but just not dripping. After I’ve used it once, I then fold the mask and place it back into the package so it can soak up the remaining serum inside, and seal it.
First I tried the Green Tea and Ginger sheet mask which is the rejuvenating one but also states it’s moisturizing and detoxifying. I thought this one might help to really make my skin feel clean while also providing some hydration. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect this one to smell like but it was a nice, light scent. Once I had removed the mask there was still some serum that needed to be absorbed into my skin. I rubbed the remaining amount around and it did absorb fairly quickly without feeling too tacky like some other masks. Afterwards my skin felt smooth and soft which, honestly, wasn’t anything new. My skin is already pretty smooth and soft so there wasn’t too much of a difference. After the second use I felt I noticed more a difference because my skin tone looked more even and slightly brighter.
Next I tried the Coconut and Rice sheet mask which is nourishing as well as moisturizing and soothing. This is the one I was most excited to try. This one also had a nice, light scent to it but definitely had a more distinguishable smell to it, which was the coconut. The other mask just had a nice smell but I couldn’t really tell what the smell was. This mask also absorbed well without feeling too tacky; even more so than the Green Tea and Ginger mask. I noticed more of an overall difference with this mask as well. My skin not only felt soft and smooth but looked it. I could tell that my pores were less visible (and I don’t even think I have particularly large pores). My skin also had more of a glow to it as well and definitely felt more nourished.
Overall both of these were really nice masks but the Coconut and Rice was definitely my favorite. I felt it provided more noticeable results and was more of what I was looking for in terms of nourishment and hydration. According to the website these masks cost $8 for one or $36 for a pack of 6 (which brings the costs of a single mask down to $6). You definitely get a better deal purchasing the pack and I would recommend the Coconut and Rice over the Green Tea and Ginger. I enjoyed trying these masks out and I hope you found my review helpful.
