Nature Republic Real Comforting Mask Sheet AHA/BHA Review:
I bought a couple of this collection’s masks literally because the packages look so simple and pretty. And then I read each of the available types (hyaluronic acid, aha/bha, madecassoside, vitamin E, vitamin C, ceramide, tea tree, pantenol, allantoin, collagen) and regret not buying one of each. I mean, they sure do sound wonderful, right?
I used a BHA toner once, and loved it and keep wanting to insert it back into my routine, so I thought of using this mask first. Will it be up to standard? Yes. Yes it will!

Nature Republic Real Comforting Mask Sheet AHA/BHA Review:
I like the design of these masks for no particular reason. I think it’s because of the two block color and the text with the other block’s color?
Anyway, to me it looks balanced and pretty!
It says stuff like “softens the skin texture”, “Ampoule type essence”, “Gentler heart mask” in Korean 더 착한 마음 마스크 시트, where 더마 is highlighted and basically says Derma in Korean. Really cute package overall!
It opens very easily but you can still feel this package is sturdier than, for example, the Aritaum masks’.
The mask is overflowing with essence as soon as I pull it out of the pack, but the essence doesn’t splash around everywhere, which makes me happy.
I can also feel right away the mask is truly soft to the touch.
And I can see that the mask is a little transparent, and so it must be thin.
Don’t judge me for folding it on the side, I have been having irritated skin there and am trying to avoid it by any means and don’t want to risk it for anything. But other than that, look at how clingy the mask is!
Amazing adherence and really good fit makes a very happy me! The adherence really is divine, it’s so good I just pressed the forehead part and didn’t need to hold the mask to the skin while I applied the rest of it. Tremendously good adherence.
Since the mask is so thin it feels light on the skin, like the Etude Air masks, and it makes for a very comfortable wear. Whereas I won’t be talking because it’ll still separate the mask from the face if I do it too much, I can do other things like… prepare breakfast. Get dressed. Write this review. So, really satisfied with the fit!
And with no effort to apply it, the mask doesn’t lift on the sides of my nose! Score.
All through the time I’m wearing it my skin feels calm and fresh which are characteristics they don’t claim, but definitely should mention as a selling point!
The essence is really watery but somewhat dense. Let me rephrase that. It’s dense but melts as you spread it. So rather than calling it an ampoule type essence I would literally just call it an essence. This is a texture I desire frequently in my essences!
The essence absorbs easily and makes my arm skin feel very comfortable, even though it’s just a swatch! It almost doesn’t feel sticky at all after absorbing, which is also a plus.
I must say so far I’m enjoying this mask and I hope it doesn’t disappoint.
The scent is present, it’s sweet but I can’t identify it well. Although it feels a little artificial, like candy, at the same time it has a hint of freshness. Like… lemon candy!
Regardless of the results I already rate this mask high (unless it breaks or irritates my skin haha) because it truly feels like a Saturday night Spa treatment. Soft, fluffy, sweet, fresh and calm. These are the adjectives I can describe it as so far, and so far nothing bad.
Once the time is up I notice that the mask has less amazing adherence so I decide to remove it. The time was up anyway. But the mask itself wasn’t dry yet!
My skin feels revitalized, yet another thing they should mention as a selling point. My skin feels hydrated and comfortable (not tight nor stretchy).
Amazing feelings really. The results when it comes to the texture, though, aren’t that visible but you can still see the bigger lumps on my skin a little lower. But AHA and BHA usually don’t work immediately, you have to use them a few times. And my ugly droopy pores are tight, so that texture was definitely improved. And 24h after using this I can say with confidence my skin texture feels way less lumpy than it was!
I recommend it a thousand times! I didn’t feel any pain or stinging so unless your skin doesn’t do well with AHA and BHA I guess you can try this even if you have sensitive skin.
