Hanyul Pure Artemisia Watery Calming Sheet Mask Review:
I saw this product on discount and bought it on an impulse. Why did I buy a random mask on an impulse? The packaging isn’t even one that catches the eye! Well, I bought it because now, in the summer time, Hanyul advertises this Artemisa collection endlessly and I really want to try their cream!
But, well, the cream is expensive, and honestly I don’t need more creams (I will keep buying them though). And a mask sheet is a nice way to take a peek into a collection, and judge how good it actually is, since it’s usually made with the same essence (adapted) as they make the collection’s essence, the same general ingredients, goals, and nutrients!
So I went for the inexpensive mask instead of getting the expensive cream. It is Hanyul so I am quite excited to try this! Plants, flowers, freshness!

How to use:
- After washing the face, tidy up skin texture with toner.
- Take out the sheet mask and attach the upper and lower parts by aligning with the eyes.
- To take care of skin around the mouth and chin, the lower part of the sheet is designed to be slightly longer.
- It should fit almost until where your chin/jaw become your neck.
- After 10-20 minutes, remove the sheet and gently pat the face to promote absorption of the remaining residue into skin.
My Skin Type: Oily T, dry U, sensitive, blemishes easily, and allergic.
Hanyul Pure Artemisia Watery Calming Sheet Mask Review:
It opened normally, and easily, no big mess nor big fuss.
When I pulled the mask out it unfolded a little, and I found no logical explanation for that. So I probably just got a slightly poorly folded mask, nothing more.
I can feel already that the mask isn’t as soft as it looks! Although it is really really strong (not dense, I mean the fibers are strong) and it is definitely not harsh on the skin or anything, it just looks softer than it is.
You know, when you unfold a mask if it barely has folding lines then it’s usually soft, but not in this case. It’s just really really normal.
It is, however, very thin and transparent.
The fit of the mask is quite decent, it lifts a little on my nose. But my nose is really tall so lifting a little is expected. Usually this type of wrinkles, or folds, on the mask are a concern for some people, but in this case the mask sticks together on those parts so it means that it’s still fully touching your skin.
As promised, the mask folds “infinitely” under the chin, because most people forget to take care of that part of their bodies.
The essence smells mild. It smells of plants from their root to their flower, including the leaves and bark. But the scent of a flower is definitely a little more prominent. Is this the smell of Artemisa?
The essence is watery and is the least sticky essence I’ve tried recently. It can be paired, in stickiness, to the Aritaum Hyaluronic Mask essence.
After the time has passed and I absorbed the essence as much as my skin lets me, it does feel hydrated (notice I didn’t say moisturized). The question is, does it stay hydrated after I proceed with my skin care and daily routine?
Because it feels really really light on my skin, I actually questioned its hydration abilities.
Well, after a few hours my skin still felt hydrated! I usually apply mist a few times during the day, and I didn’t feel a need for that today (until I did my mid-afternoon skin care).
I must say, I tried a Hanyul product once I didn’t care for. I tried another I liked. And this one is a tie breaker, I like this mask and will get it again when on promotion – or whenever I need it.
A little piece of advice: if your skin is oily or combination it probably needs a lot of hydration because it’s most likely overcompensating the lack of hydration by producing oil.
If it’s a dry skin then you need hydration because all skins need it, and you need moisture. I found that after using this mask (as well as some other hydrating masks that were not moisturizing) my T zone produced less oil, and my dry U zone “ate” the moisture better.
