Well, using a sheet mask for the first time can be a weird experience, very weird. When all that you are used to apply on face is either powder or paste, sheet masks prove to be a wet and a bit messy experience. You take in hand a packed sheet mask, by it only you get an idea how slippery things may get. When I used it for the first time, this is exactly how things went.
Beginning of Sheet Mask
I used the normal white egg shaped sheet mask, so, to be honest, it is the whitest thing I have ever seen till now. And so clean, I did not want to get it dirty by touching it. However, I did it. After taking it out, the second most difficult task I had to do in the whole process was opening it. It appears to be so delicate that I was afraid that I may tear it. Also, the fragrance of the serum is a serious plus point. Very tenderly, I opened it and tried to apply it on my face. Slippery as hell. I felt like it may fall off any time, that too with my skin. But soon I realized that it will not let go my face so easily; thanks to the serums. The mask felt very cool against the skin though.
So I finally acquainted my face with the feel of the mask, and the good thing is; it doesn’t crack if you laugh (like the traditional face masks)! A very major plus point for me, since I laugh a lot. A LOT. So I had seen on various social media platforms that celebrities uploaded a selfie wearing this Korean skincare thing. I thought of doing the same, and, not very surprisingly, I looked no less scary than a ghost. Not scary, but a bit idiotic I guess, or maybe I wore it wrong. Anyway, I put the phone aside and just relaxed on my couch. Just when I thought that things will be normal, my father came into my room and got freaked out like anything. Then he looked clearly and started laughing. It felt like an incessant laughter; he wanted to ask what on Earth the thing on my face is, but he could not because of the uncontrollable laughter.
After all that I took off the mask 15-20 minutes later, the easiest thing till now. No washing the face afterwards, no pain. Just easily remove it like any other sheet. I could feel an instant glow on my face; it felt cleaner and lighter. Also, the remaining of serum can be used on the elbows and neck to smoothen the skin.
For a first time user, my experience was rather funny, but worth it, and I would definitely recommend for everyone to try it once. If there is an event coming up and you could not schedule a parlour appointment owing to your busy schedule, sheet masks come to your rescue. I have yet to explore the world of sheet masks and types of them available to use, but till then, I will keep scaring the hell out of my family members regularly.
