Missha Homemade Modeling Mask Nourishing Oatmeal Review:
After completely falling in love with the Mungbean Powder (Moisturizing) mask of this same collection, eventually I had to try the other masks. The first one became a favorite of mine right away, so, wouldn’t you try it in this situation?
This mask is Oatmeal. I love morning oatmeal porridge, sweet, cereal-y… And thanks to the Mungbean mask, my expectations for this mask couldn’t be higher. Will it live up to expectation?

Missha Homemade Modeling Mask Nourishing Oatmeal Review:
Even though I knew from before that it was a small package, it always surprises me to see how small it is. Not that it’s anything special, all these modeling masks are pretty small – but I guess I’m always waiting for something like the Dr. Jart Shake masks or like the 23 Years Old modeling masks.
This mask has the same essence as a base, and you choose “the topping”.
Maybe next time I’ll mix two toppings and see how it goes!
The essence and the fine powder couldn’t have more different consistencies.
I don’t detect any scent in the essence but the powder smells amazing as soon as you open it! Like light sweet breakfast food but with a hint of a flowery scent! A very Etude House type of smell I may add.
After mixing for a while it feels already denser than the previous one I had tried. Which is good because I remember last time it getting all over while I was trying to mask.
Never mind, it still got a little all over. But not as bad as last time!
Given that the mask doesn’t mix more than this I’ll just assume this is how it’s supposed to look.
After applying it kept sliding down my face little by little, although this time not as much as with the previous mask – only in a way that I actually had time to clean it before it got too messy. And it didn’t feel like sand slowly sliding down my face.
While the mask is on it feels fresh (I guess cold in the winter) and the corners of my nose are a little uncomfortable, so I guess they were dry before this. Welp, let’s hope the mask fixes that hehe.
This time I knew beforehand there is a lot of mask so I decided to put it all the way down to my neck. And if it wasn’t for the photos I would have put it all the way down to my chest – there is just that much mask in there.
If you’re masking with someone there is enough for two people, making the price of this mask quite acceptable (at least if you consider the results of the other mask, we’ll see about this one later).
I have to admit, I feel less monstrous with less snots sliding down my face than last time.
I also feel bored having to wait like 10 minutes before this solidifies enough and I can move. I know, I know, spa treatment, but if you have to do it yourself it kinda ruins the spa a little!
Let me just close my eyes and enjoy the silence.
As usual you can’t really tell when to remove the mask, since it’s so so moist even though it has solidified. So, in this case, just count the 20 minutes and either remove it then or whenever you want to afterwards.
So moist I just want to leave it on and use it instead of a dust protection mask…
Honestly with this mask I don’t feel the results as much as I felt with the previous one.
Unfortunately for me the mask wasn’t enough to hydrate NOR moisturize. My skin did feel less tight, like it had relaxed, but not hydrated, not moisturized, not nourished.
My skin did not improve in any way other than soothing – and I think the skin was only soothed because I had a fresh mask on top of it for a long while.
I think the before and after photo explains very well what I mean: the skin isn’t really red anymore, but the pores are still droopy (lack of hydration), swollen (lack of nourishment) and my skin is overall dry and dehydrate. Especially with the last one, I don’t feel like I masked at all.
Sometimes it’s nice to have skin so light after masking it feels like you didn’t mask at all, but only when the results are there and visible. In this case if feels like I masked (relaxed and soothed skin) but with no results?
My skin definitely feels more comfortable, but it’s not looking better at all, and I still feel the need to apply my essence or a nourishing cream afterwards.
I remember when I used the other mask of this collection, I felt and looked so good I didn’t want to touch my skin. (but I did because I had to go out and skin needs protection)
Also, as usual, I couldn’t remove this mask in one go and instead had a bunch of gel lumps in my hand.
I wouldn’t recommend this mask for the normal price (or ever since there is better stuff – it was just a nice-while-it-lasted but with-no-significant-effects mask), I would still recommend the Moisturizing version of it.
