Forencos Volcanic Ash Detox Sheet Mask Review:
I bought this mask because its ingredients really appealed to me. I keep using the masks from welcos that contain volcanic ash from Jeju and they’re my holy grail sheet masks so I was really curious to see if I’d like this one as much.
To shortly sum it up, volcanic ash can be found anywhere near a volcano and people have been using it for cosmetic purposes since the prehistoric eras. It has many benefits for the skin as it can help healing rashes, blemishes, wrinkles, eczema, psoriasis, and even stretch acne.
+ This Detox Silk Mask is enriched with natural volcanic ash which has the power to absorb sebum and clear impurities of the skin.
+ It can also can tighten the pores and improve complexion simultaneously. It has deep cleansing and purifying properties.

2. Open the mask pack and then place the sheet on your face while gently fitting it properly.
3. Leave it on for 15-20 minutes and then take it off. Dab the remaining essence on to the skin and after it gets absorbed, continue with your skincare routine.

Forencos Volcanic Ash Detox Sheet Mask Review:
I’d like to start with the characteristics that I did like about this mask. It has a protective layer so the mask doesn’t get tangled (though it takes a lot of essence off the mask but it’s not a problem). It also has very pretty (or should I say handsome), packaging that really feels luxurious. And that’s about it, now I’ll get to the point.
I’ve tried all the masks from this line of Forencos and I expected all the masks (the mask as a sheet not the mask as a mask), to be the same. I have no idea how big of a role the ingredients and the consistency of the essence play- even though the essence does feel the same in all of them, or if the masks are actually made with different ingredients;
Its fit is worse than the others. Especially the fit on the chin area is awful. It’s a very important part of a sheet mask and that’s why I’m stressing it so much. The fit of the mask you see, has to do a lot with the results you get. If a part of the skin isn’t correctly covered with the sheet, it doesn’t get all the benefits it could if the mask had a good fit. Aka the mask under performs.
It has way more essence than the rest do so maybe that can be the cause of the bad fit- even though I can’t see how more essence can make the fit worse, if someone knows please explain. All masks had a lot if essence but this one is on another level, it has about the same amount with the Berrisom face wrap masks; that’s a lot. I used the remaining with the Skinfood green toner cotton pads and it worked in the exact same way. Read the results paragraph to get what I mean.
It has no smell- which I totally prefer to the strong perfume-y smells other masks have. The essence’s texture is thin and runny while the mask is thin, almost transparent. Even though it’s thin, it doesn’t evaporate very fast; even after I took the mask off, my face was wet for about 5 minutes or less (and yes, I did pat the remaining essence).
It leaves a slight texture on the skin after each use. Not as greasy as some but not completely comfortable either. I didn’t mind it a lot but someone with skin oilier than mine (my skin is not THAT oily), could have a problem with it.
I’d say I liked it but I’m not exactly surprised with what it does; My face became very bright and an active pimple I had got better while my dark circles got worse (someone please explain to me how this is possible!). The effects didn’t last for more than a day though my face did not become worse afterwards so I can’t complain. Unlike the others, it didn’t leave a sticky feeling; instead, my face felt like there was nothing on. Also, it looked matte while it still had that glow.
Your basic, typical sheet mask. Honestly. It does exactly what an average mask does or to put it out nicely, it does what you expect it to do, without surprising you. I did like it but it’s just a ‘meh’ mask that I wouldn’t opt to use on a special day that I want my skin to be super nice. It is moisturizing which I like but let’s be honest, the majority of sheet masks are very moisturizing.
I like the Welcos masks way more and they’re also more affordable so I don’t see a reason to repurchase this one. Except if I liked Song Joong Ki that much haha. I’d recommend it only if you’re curious about it but don’t expect much.
