[REVIEW] Illi Hanbang Camellia Oil Nourishing Mask

Illi Hanbang Camellia Oil Nourishing Mask Review:

I literally bought this mask, and a few from the same collection, because of the packaging. I really like Korean traditional paintings and designs, and in a mask pack it doesn’t get much more traditional than this! I chose this one to start, out of all the ones I bought, because of the color, it’s a beautiful burgundy.

Other than that, Illi has been catching my eye for a long time, I want to try their creams, cleansers, all of it. It’s a really affordable brand by Amore Pacific, the same brand that owns IOPE, Laneige, Mamonde, Aritaum,… So it’s just really tempting!


With the camelia oil, it nurtures and cares for the skin.

A cotton-blend sheet mask soaked in super antioxidant Camellia oil, most notably known to protect skin from environmental and free radical damage, and thus reduce signs of aging. Leaves skin feeling soft and supple.

The package opens straight ahead, no big fuss, and nothing dirty or messy when I open it.

When I pulled the mask out of the pouch it felt a little heavy… so I went in the sun and investigated!

Because it wasn’t dripping I didn’t see it right away, but it’s completely soaked in essence.

The mask was weirdly folded inside, but nothing that was difficult to separate and stretch out.

The essence is milky and a little dense, but not as dense as a cream is. It absorbed very quickly when I massaged it, and it wasn’t sticky at all. It almost disappeared into my skin.

The scent, to me, is not that of a flower. It feels more… like a garden. A garden that’s sweet, like flower dew!

The mask is a little too big so it folded on every part of my face, but other than that it adhered very well (even on my nose area!!) and the only problem were those flaps on the side of my face.

But on to the review itself! The mask stayed on and moist for the whole 15 minutes. Which is very unusual in my case! The scent kept its intensity also, but I can’t say that it’s a particularly good or bad scent, it depends on your taste.

Garden-y scents for me are okay, but not for every day usage. After the time has passed, I removed the mask and there wasn’t much essence left to absorb, but I did so anyway with whatever was left. It absorbed very quickly!

However, there was no “wow” feeling after using this… when we use a mask we expect either super hydration or moisture, or a super comfortable feeling, skin that shines! This mask really didn’t have any of that.

It didn’t dry my skin either, but I didn’t see any of the effects it promised – especially since they specifically mentioned moisture.

If I had to compare… it’s very similar in feeling to the Mediheal Aqua Chip mask, but without the point massage and without the wrinkle reduction – which means without anything actually.

My opinion on this mask… it wasn’t a good nor bad mask, it was a waste of money, even though the package was beautiful! I hope the rest of the collection doesn’t disappoint like this one.
