New Aritaum Fresh Power Essence Potato Mask Sheet Review:
Here on Cosmeperks you can already read reviews of the Aritaum Pearl, Hyaluronic acid, and Honey masks. So, as you know if you’ve read them, I really want to try all Aritaum masks and find out what’s good and what’s not. Because they are really affordable, and very light! So they would make great products to include in daily routine if they’re good, don’t you think?
This one is a Potato mask. As a nice lady once said “There are masks with every ingredient nowadays”! And it’s true. Potatoes have been popular in Europe and America as a staple food, but I have heard of cases of people making raw potato pastes or potato slices and applying them on their skin, so it is known that potatoes do have qualities that are good for our skin. Food for our skin? We’ll see how this mask goes.
Makes a tired skin calm and moisturizes it, and gives the skin a clean care. Includes 2000mg of potato extract. Its water type essence gets easily absorbed onto the skin.
Purified Water, Potato Extract, Dipropylene Glycol, Glycerin, Ethanol, Betaine, Butylene Glycol, Peony Root Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, 1,2-hexanediol, Peg-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Chamomile Flower Extract, Glyceryl Caprylate, Xanthan Gum, Carbomer, Ethylhexyl Glycerin, Potassium Hydroxide, Sophora Flavescens Root Extract, Gold Euphoria Extract, Green Tea Extract, Peach Tree Leaf Extract, Ginkgo Leaf Extract, Golden Extract, Disodium Iodide, Fragrance
How to use:
- Wash your face and gently pat it dry.
- Refine the skin with a toner, and then apply the mask, matching the eyes, nose, and lips with the appropriate area.
- Let your skin take a rest while you wait.
- Remove the mask after 15 to 20 minutes and pat the remaining essence dry.
My Skin Type: Oily T, dry U, sensitive, blemishes easily, and allergic.
Aritaum Fresh Power Essence Potato Mask Sheet Review:
So, you should know I want to eat french fries right now, and if you’re eating them while reading this I’m tremendously jealous of you.
After washing and drying my face and hands, I got to it right away! The importance of the opening moment is that it gives you the very first impression of the mask. When I opened it, there was a little bit of essence splattering around, which bothers me of course, but at least it didn’t get everywhere.
The mask itself isn’t dripping, but it is full of liquid.
The mask sheet is as transparent and thin as the others – that’s the characteristic of this collection. The masks are very thin and have a 3 layer system.
This system has two outer layers on the sheet to keep the liquid retained in there, and the middle layer is soaked in the liquid. Allegedly, we can never 100% confirm these things, the only thing we can do is believe them or not, according to the end result of the mask!
The mask has the same fitting problem as usual, fits generally well but my nose… On the brighter side, it fits medium to big faces easily, since it has a lot of mask surface, and it sticks well to the skin so you won’t have “air bubble” problems.
I’m not sure about extra-small faces, but lots of Koreans have them and they don’t complain about the masks’ fitting!
Anyway, I think it is because of the essence, today the mask is sticking better to my skin so I won’t need to cut it!
As usual there is lots of essence in the pouch so keep it for using on your body if you like the end result of it on your face.
The scent is not bad, it doesn’t smell like raw potato (gladly) but the smell reminisces of it. It sort of smells like a fermented alcoholic drink, like a mixture of makegolli and soju together but sweet.
Unfortunately it doesn’t smell like french fries. I wish they would make savory food scents, rather than just sweet food scents (and yes, I would totally use a french fry scent as long as it disappeared after 5 minutes).
It absorbed quickly on the skin while I swatched it, and it isn’t sticky at all afterwards. The mask doesn’t stay cool on the skin for too long, after just a couple of minutes it was almost matching my skin temperature. It can be the mask or the time of the year, now that the weather is getting warmer here in Korea.
As the time passes it dries quickly on the nose and mouth areas, but otherwise it stays moist until the end. After the 20 minutes I remove the mask and I can do my judgment. The skin feels elastic and comfortable, and the essence remaining on the skin dries super fast, which allows to proceed with my further skin care routine quickly. My skin feels really comfortable after this mask, and my pores look pretty (usually after using a mask they look plugged).
Along with the Hyaluronic Acid mask from the same collection, this is the other mask I will definitely want to keep using! Especially during the sticky summer weather. The humidity in Korean summer is really high, and because of it my body loses a lot of water and my skin becomes dry. This mask, along with the previously mentioned one, will care for the liveliness, moisture, and hydration I need during this weather!
