Review: The Cure Green Tea Collagen Essence Mask

The_Cure_GT_MasksI bought a set of these masks on offer in TK Maxx a little while ago to try out as I’ve never used anything by this brand before. After I used the mask I felt that it actually left my skin feeling a bit dry and irritated. There was very little essence left after the recommended 15 minutes was up. Unusually for a sheet mask as well there wasn’t really any essence left in the packet after I’d taken out the mask. One thing I did notice straight away when I unfolded the mask is that it’s much thicker than a lot of other sheet masks.

The_Cure_Green_Tea_MaskAfter using the mask my skin looked a little red as well and lacked the usual nice glow you can get from a good sheet mask. I’ve used a lot of green tea products as it’s one of my favourite natural ingredients and I’ve never had any problems with dry or irritated skin before so I can only conclude that it is this particular mask that my skin is reacting to.

I played around this mask and tried varying the length of time it is left on. It is better if you leave it on for only five minutes but even then you really can feel the mask drying out and my skin still felt irritated and dry. So as far as my recommendation goes I personally wouldn’t buy this again and I would suggest that you avoid this if you have particularly sensitive skin. If you have less sensitive skin though you might find this works okay as I know some people do like this mask.
