Forever 21 Masks

DSC02804I mentioned in my Past Forever21 Haul that I had purchased a few masks and a makeup remover towelletes. Well after trying the masks for a few days, I really like them, so I went back to the website and ordered a truckload of more masks!!! (thirty to be excact!) and I have been using them every day!!
The Forever 21 masks are made by a korean company called Adwin Korea Corp. Adwin Produces PureDerm which is sold on F21, and Skinlite, which is sold on SASA.

Actually some of these masks are sold on SASA under the name of Skinlite, and is a little more expensive than F21, for example the lavender mask on SASA is $2.30 and on F21 is $1.50. They are the same exact mask, even the picture, shape everything! the only difference is the logo on it, and the price (even though they are made by the same mother company).
The only difference btw F21 and SASA is that SASA has more variety of their masks and more in stock. F21 tends to run out fast (maybe because they are popular!)

I have tried Japanese beauty products before (KOSE, Shiseido, Hadalabo, DHC), and some Chinese beauty products my old roommate left me a lot of them which I used, and still using a few. My take on Asian beauty products has always been positive, they make your skin a lot better than regular American products. I’ve never tried Korean products (except for the Face Shop), so when I found out about F21 selling these masks, and for a cheap price, I jumped on the wagon in excitement.
I am gonna try to review all these masks!! so you can see which one is worth your money Smile

Make-up Cleansing Tissues in Rose Extract
Claim: make-up cleansing Tissues thoroughly remove eyeliner, shadow, lipstick and even waterproof mascara without skin irritation.
Comments: YES. I even think it works better than ponds and Neutrogena! it doesn’t irritate my eyes, and it gets 98% of my makeup with the first swipe (right pic) the second swipe (left pic) that’s all that is left. for such a good price, it is totally worth it. The smell is fab too, it smells like the rose pastry I ate when I was in china (which had like real rose flower in the middle). So truly, it smells like Rose.
Will buy again: Yes. most definitely.

skin softening Yogurt mask [Strawberry]
Claim: skin softening and brightening! provides immediate smoothness and radiance to your complexion. Helps refine and brighten the skin by controlling excess oil and sebum.
Comments: I had to resist from eating this mask! it smelt so much like real yoghurt! and the result of my skin after use was indeed soft and moisturized. It did not dry my skin at all and yet it wasn’t greasy.
Will buy again: Yes. most definitely.
Rating:5/5

Skin brightening natural Pearl mask [Vitamin e]
Claim: brightening and rejuvenating! magically helps to tone and rejuvenate complexion, clear blemishes, minimize pores and enhance blood circulation. The skin will look natural and brilliant.
Comments: I didn’t notice any drastic brightening or so after use, but I noticed that my skin looked fresher and more awake after use. The scent is flowery and it has little beads which you can use to exfoliate the skin as you put on the mask.
Will buy again: Yes. most definitely.
Rating:4/5

illuminating arbutin mask
Claim: blended with natural whitening ingredient- Arbutin, Vitamin E, green tea extract and tropical fruits to brighten your skin. Powerful formula quickly clarifies skin for a brighter, pearly translucent complexion. Effect for soothing & hydrating. Clarifies uneven skin tones and lightens spots, fine lines leaving skin smoother, fairer and younger looking.
Comments: This was the first lotion/paper mask I used, indeed my skin looked fresher after I took of the paper and it looked more awake! I love this mask
Will buy again: Yes. most definitely.

skin recovery red ginseng mask [Vitamin E]
Claim: Reenergizing & elasticity! specially formulated with oriental red ginseng which burst with energy and vitamins to help nourish skin. Topical application of Vitamin E can help improve skin elasticity and promote healing of damaged skin. It leaves you looking and feeling energized for the day ahead!
Comments: this mask is my favorite of all!! I just love the way it smells, I love the scent so much that I had to stop myself from using it more than once a day! I also love what it does to my skin, it makes it soft and smooth, and calms down any irritation, it is also gentle on the skin and perfect for sensitive skin. I remember about a few weeks ago I was reacting to my Clearasil scrub (I think I scrubbed too hard and too often) and my skin would hurt when I touched it, it also would burn if I used anything harsh on it, so I just used this mask on my face for about a week or two and it got better, sped up the healing process if I should assume.
Will buy again: Yes. most definitely.

Cucumber Deep cleansing peel off mask
Claim: Peels away impurities and dead skin cells while cucumber extract leaves your skin moisturized, smooth and silky. The airtight mask allows natural ingredients to penetrate deep into the pores to unclog and increase skin clarity and moisture.
Comments: I’m not a big fan of peel off masks, of the ones I’ve tried, I’ve only liked a few, and this one wasn’t one of them. I felt that it was too light and it made my skin feel dry after use (most peel of masks do, hence the reason I don’t use them).
Will buy again: no

Apricot anti-stress heat therapy mask
Claim: Has a special form of heating up instantly after being applied to your face, like a hot towel treatment. The invigorating mask enhanced with apricot  and avocado extract draws out excess dirt and oil, gently exfoliates skin, removing dull cells to instantly reveal smooth, radiant complexion.
Comments: This mask does NOT heat up! it only does as you apply it but its just a warming feeling, not a hot feeling. Maybe my judgment is biased because I have used the Olay thermal mask and I was expecting it to be at least up to par(or as hot) with such. I was a little disappointed about the heat issue, BUT the scent is fantastic. and I believe it is the scent that is relaxing NOT the heat! I would buy it again just for the relaxing scent!
Will buy again: Yes.
Rating:4/5

Skin recovery nourishing mask “choco Cacao”
Claim: enriched with cacao extract which, thanks to its nourishing, emollient and anti-oxidant properties, nourishes and protects skin. concentrated with skin silkening cocoa butter, moisturizing shea butter, intoxicating aroma of chocolate extract and other skin nutrients that protect and repair. a delicious way to nourish and pamper your skin!
Comments: this mask has a stench that takes getting used to (hence the low rating). I don’t know what cacao is but I didn’t expect it to smell this way, the first time I used it, I wanted to barf at the scent but I stopped myself from immediately washing it off. However, before the second use, since I was mentally prepared for its smell, it still stank but I felt it wasn’t that bad, it’s a nice clay mask, so I’ll probably buy it again, its not moisturizing as my other clay masks but it will suffice.
Will buy again: Yes.

Lavender Collagen Mask
Claim: easy and effective skin recovery treatment enriched with lavender extract, collagen and vitamin E. Provides intensive hydration while lavender is acclaimed for its aromatic, antiseptic and skin soothing properties.
Comments: Nothing special, nothing bad. Just like the other sheet masks, it did leave my skin feeling fresh, brighter and moisturized. I would buy it again for the versatility of switching masks (I get bored easily).
Will buy again: Yes.
Rating:4/5

Deep Cleansing Peel-Off Mask [Cucumber]
Claim: gently peels away impurities and dead skin cells while cucumber extract leaves your skin moisturized, smooth and silky. The airtight mask allows natural ingredients to penetrate deep into the pores to unclog and increase skin clarity and moisture.
Comments: Of all the peel masks I've tried, I've only liked one, which was the queen Helene Grape seed Peel off. BUT this one comes close to it! The formula is thick (which means it'll get more dirt-in my perspective), it peels off easily, and it also doesn’t dry my skin. My skin is left feeling cool, clean and soft.
Will buy again: YES!!
Rating:5/5


Raspberry Collagen Mask
Claim: easy and effective skin recovery treatment formulated with raspberry extract, collagen and vitamin E. Raspberry extract provides rich nutrition and intense moisture to your tired skin.
Comments: I don’t Like the smell of raspberries, I don’t like the taste either, I don’t like raspberries point blank. so I was a little iffy on buying this mask: I think I bought only one, just to see what its like. After use I was surprised, the scent is lovely, it made me wonder why real raspberries don’t smell this good! It does what it claims and I would be buying loads of this!
Will buy again: Yes. most definitely.

red ginseng essence mask
Claim: blended with Korean red ginseng, vitamin E and collagen to revitalize your tired skin. skin feels elastic, moisturized and radiant.
Comments: I bought this because of my love for ginseng, the scent isn't as strong as the other mask, which is understandable because this is an essence mask. I still take joy in using it because of its scent, and its results on my skin.
Will by again: Yes. most definitely.
Rating:5/5

age defying Collagen Mask
Claim: blended with collagen, vitamin E, Green Tea extract and tropical fruits to nourish your skin. Provide intensive hydration to help reduce facial lines and signs of aging. effective for replenishing and nourishing.
Comments: We all need a lil’ more collagen on our skin, so I bought it because of all what it claimed to do! and I wasn’t disappointed, just like the essence masks it does moisturize very well, I have taken a liking to sheet masks, and will be repurchasing and using them frequently.
Will by again: Yes. most definitely.
Rating:5/5


Well that is all the masks that I purchased!! I cannot wait to try more of their masks and also try other Korean brands on SASA!
ever since I've been incorporating these masks in my facial routine, and using my St. Ives collagen moisturizer, I have noticed a big change in my skin after a month, it has become more supple, softer, clearer and brighter. Now I even leave the house without makeup, confidently! my skin looks so much better, I am gonna keep doing this routine diligently!
Thanks for Reading, God bless!
