Let’s test an innovative & very unique type of sheet mask from Korea. Kocostar Slice Mask Sheet looks like slices of fruits and vegetables. Very cute indeed! Here’s my review.
Kocostar Slice Mask Sheet is a line of innovative and unique sheet masks from Korea. Basically they are small mini sheet masks looking like slices of fruits and vegetables. I just love the concept of it all, very cute indeed. The sheet masks are targeting specific skin concerns and can be used on the face, the decolletage, on top of the hands or all over the body. The sheet masks contain fruit and vegetable extracts. Kocostar Slice Mask Sheet comes in a whole range of different slice masks like Lemon, Apple, Tomato, Watermelon, Pineapple, Strawberry, Banana, Cucumber, Kiwi, Coconut and Aloe Vera to name a few.
I bought 3 of these sheet masks for 2 euros / pc while visiting Spain, and it’s the first product I’m testing from Korean brand Kocostar. I’ve previously seen these slice masks on social media and have been curious testing them since they are so cute and fun. I had no expectations of this product prior to testing these slice masks.
My very first impression is that the sheet masks look square inside the packaging. There are 2 sheets in each one it says on the packaging. But how should I use these masks I’m wondering? After googling some I soon understood that “slice mask” means that there are many small sheet masks, and not a big one. Basically mini sheet masks that looks like slices of fruits and vegetables. This shall be fun!
The sheet masks are difficult to pull out of the packaging, especially if you don’t want to use them all at once. My tip is to pull out some of the protective plastic film at a time, because it’s hard to put the sheet masks back in the packaging once you’ve pulled them out! Each sheet contains 6 pieces of mini sized sheet masks which are placed on a transparent protective plastic film. A total of 12 small slice masks on 2 plastic films. Potentially one should be able to pull out one plastic film at a time and only use 6 slice masks, but I’ve tried that and it’s hard and fiddly. The material of the small slice masks is just like a usual classic sheet mask, but with fun prints on them.
The Kocostar Slice Mask Sheet is incredibly affordable, fun & refreshing. But the tiny pieces of slice masks does feel a bit small and insignificant to be honest.
You can either use all 12 slice masks at once to cover the entire face and the decolletage, or just use a couple at a time for treating specific areas. You can also mix and match. For example use the lemon slice masks to treat tired dull skin and cucumber to target dryness. The slice masks have good adherence and sits tight to the skin. But I do have some problems getting the chin slice not to fall off. Because the slice masks are so small, they start to dry after 10 minutes. However, the Kocostar Slice Mask Sheet still keeps an OK quality and they are absolutely affordable costing from 2 euros / sheet mask.
Lemon: Unbelievably lovely and fresh lemon scent, definitely not artificial and sweet but very fresh, somewhat towards a detergent type scent. Lovely translucent essence which my skin loves and absorbs with joy. Feels gentle and hydrating on the skin. Suitable for all skin types except maybe for sensitive skin. Perfect for targeting dull areas that lost its radiance. Lemon should brighten the skin and provide a new healthy glow. The skin felt absolutely fresh and almost “plump” after using Kocostar Slice Mask Sheet Lemon. I definitely saw improved glow and radiance in my skin. Hardly any stickiness, just fresh skin. The skin feels slightly moisturized after using Kocostar Slice Mask Sheet Lemon, nothing negative at all. If this had been a full size sheet mask then the rating would be higher. This was the slice mask that I liked the most out of the 3.
Cucumber: My first thought when I opened the packaging was that this sheet mask must contain alcohol (but it doesn’t). It smells like cucumber absolutely, but almost an “overripe” type scent in some way. I wasn’t 100% sold on the scent even though it’s quite mild and natural. Thin lovely fresh essence that my skin loved and absorbed like a sponge. The cucumber slice mask contains vitamin C and deeply hydrates the skin. The slice mask is gentle, cooling and refreshing without irritating the skin or causing redness. The skin feels fresh with a healthy glow after using Kocostar Slice Mask Sheet Cucumeber. Hardly any stickiness and the skin felt somewhat moisturized after using this mask, in a good way!
Tomato: This slice mask has a strange scent I feel. Something like glue and spirits mixed with old vegetables (!) The expiration date is 1 year away so it should still be good for use! The slice mask feels nice, cooling, refreshing, hydrating and gentle without irritating the skin. After using Kocostar Slice Mask Sheet Tomato, the skin looked nice and fresh with some new radiance. Hardly any stickiness, and a moisturized type feeling on the skin. This was the slice mask I liked the least out of the 3, mostly because of the strange scent.
Overall, I think that Kocostar Slice Mask Sheet is a fun, colorful and exciting sheet mask, but not a “must have” product in my opinion. Only buy these slice sheet masks if you find them cheaply, and mostly because they are fun. The lemon slice mask is the best I feel, and the tomato one smelled weird! Plus for the colorful lovely packaging and the whole concept. The slice sheet masks themselves are super cute. Very Instagram friendly indeed! Plus for the cheap price and that they are hydrating and gentle without irritating the skin. Plus for the opportunity to mix and match the slices for treating different areas and skin concerns all at once. Minus because it’s difficult to pull out a few slice masks at a time from the packaging. They also feel a bit small and insignificant not making a whole lot of a difference I’m afraid. Minus because the masks started drying after 10 minutes.
Personally, I prefer regular full size sheet masks that cover the entire face. But Kocostar Slice Mask Sheet are absolutely a line of colorful, fun masks and they are perfect for a fun SPA evening with friends. The slice masks are super cute, but they are not a “must have” type product in my opinion. Around average ratings from me, but not much more than that I’m afraid..
The Kocostar Slice Mask Sheet is incredible instagram friendly and pretty. Perfect for the fun SPA evening with friends.
