FIRST IMPRESSION: Holika Holika Pure Essence Mask Sheet Damask Rose

Let’s test a sheet mask from Korean brand Holika Holika, more specifically the Holika Holika Pure Essence Mask Sheet in Damask Rose.

Holika Holika Pure Essence Mask Sheet Damask Rose is a thin sheet mask with damask rose oil that deeply hydrates the skin. Moisturizing, lifting and  brightening. Holika Holika Pure Essence Mask Sheet line is a series of extra thin sheet masks that holds moisture well and sits tight to the skin during application.

The packaging is so lovely and inviting I think. There’s a small “open here” corner for easier access to the sheet mask. It’s working to pull each corner of the packaging, but it’s hardly “easy”. Holika Holika Pure Essence Mask Sheet Damask Rose is sooo thin you guys. That’s my first reaction using this Korean sheet mask. I was very careful unfolding this sheet mask because it’s much thinner than usual. Holika Holika Pure Essence Mask Sheet Damask Rose is completely soaked in lovely transparent essence with a lovely scent of the mildest rose.

I just love the brief scent of rose, but I don’t know if I like that this sheet mask is so thin. On one hand, it sits very well against every corner of my skin as promised. On the other hand, it easily loosens around the eyes and mouth when talking or moving. (Which happens with many other sheet masks as well to be honest).

Holika Holika Pure Essence Mask Sheet Damask Rose feels wonderfully relaxing and cooling on the skin. But I’m not 100% sold on this one. It’s like something’s missing. It’s a cheap and very affordable Korean sheet mask, no doubt about that. Holika Holika Pure Essence Mask Sheet Damask Rose costs around 1.50-2 euros / pc and absolutely worth the price. But no wow-feeling from this mask unfortunately. You probably shouldn’t use this sheet mask for more than 20 minutes as it’s drying up slightly because it’s so thin. Recommended application time is 10-20 minutes and one should stick to that I feel.

I would recommend Holika Holika Pure Essence Mask Sheet Damask Rose mainly for dry skin types and possibly also combination skin. This sheet mask is wonderfully relaxing and hydrating and you almost feel smeared after using it. The skin feels a tiny bit “oily” and slightly sticky. Therefore, I wouldn’t recommend Holika Holika Pure Essence Mask Sheet Damask Rose for oily skin types. My tip is to apply this sheet mask in the evening. As your skin feels a bit smeared after using it, I wouldn’t apply this mask in the morning or of you’re planning on wearing makeup.

Plus for the lovely pink packaging with a small “open here” corner for easier access without using scissors. Wonderful mild scent of rose, and a very cheap price. The sheet mask sits tightly against the skin as long as you don’t move your face. Absolutely passed my test and all around a good sheet mask. Does the job and works well on dry skin types. But no wow-feeling from me unfortunately.

I’m having a hard time deciding if I like or LIKE the Holika Holika Pure Essence Mask Sheet Damask Rose. Clearly passed my test and absolutely worth 1.50, but no wow-feeling at this point unfortunately.
