TonyMoly Pureness 100 Shea Butter Mask Sheet Review:
I ordered Etude House mask sheet last week but the seller sent me this mask without any confirmation. When I complained about that, the seller apologized and said that the mask I ordered was sold out. Bzzzz… Since I did not want to be busy for returning the mask, so I finally used it after searching many information about this mask sheet, especially its main ingredient, Shea Butter.
I rarely use shea butter for my skincare (I guess this is my first time). But thanks to this mask I finally know that shea butter actually has such a large of healing fraction. Shea butter can treat many skin problems such as blemishes, wrinkles, sunburns, skin allergies to insect bites (wohoo, sounds so interesting). Shea butter is also popular for its moisturizing benefit to skin. I hope this mask will give me a great result as well.

TonyMoly Pureness 100 Shea Butter Mask Sheet Review:
The packaging is like many other mask sheets around the world. It comes in a square pocket and super travel friendly. But to be honest, the design is so granny and boring. It is not as eye-catching as Innisfree My Real Squeeze Mask that wins my heart as the best mask sheet packaging among the others.
The pocket seems to be a bit thicker than the other mask sheets but fortunately I can tear it off very easily. Meanwhile the rest of the packaging, such as description of the product and ingredients list can be found on the back side, written in both Korean and English.
I do not know the real scent of shea butter, but I do really like the scent of this mask. It is a soft floral scent that smells very pleasant and fresh. I am not sure if the real shea butter smells like this because this mask contains fragrance, but as far as I enjoy the scent then it does not matter.
The essence is not as much as I expected. This mask is a little stingy T T. I could not find any leftover essence in the pocket. Literally the essence is absorbed in the mask sheet and there is no excess essence I got for my hands or elbows.
This mask is made from 100% soft cotton, no wonder if the surface of the sheet is very soft and smooth. It feels so comfortable on my sensitive skin. The sheet is not slippery too, thus it is easy to wear and can adhere very well on my face. I can wear the mask sheet even without laying down on bed.
The shape of the mask is similar with ordinary mask sheet. But I feel that the size is slightly bigger than the other ones. Even the edge of the sheet reached my ears, haha. Fortunately, the cutout holes for eyes, nose and mouth fit nicely on me, so I do not want to complain more.
If you are a picky person and obsessed with extra thin mask sheet, you probably do not like this mask. Tonymoly Pureness 100 Mask Sheet is three times thicker than the other mask sheet (compared with Etude House 0.2 Therapy Air Mask and Innisfree My Real Squeeze Mask Sheet). This is seriously a thick sheet. But do not worry, it is not that heavy on face, hhaha. Just quite thick.
I am not sure whether a thick sheet can keep more essence or whatsoever because actually when used this mask, I did not feel like that. As I mentioned, the mask did not bring essence abundantly. I had no dripping essence while wearing this product. And the sheet started to get dry after 15-20 minutes left on my face, just like any other mask sheet I usually use.
I finally got a surprise after removing the mask and gave about 10 minutes for the remain essence to be absorbed completely into my skin. The essence worked very well for my skin. The texture of the essence is like more watery and runny. It is transparent and comes in lightweight consistency. It seems like ordinary essence from many other mask sheet products. But the result amazed me for sure!
The essence did not leave greasy and sticky feeling on my skin. It absorbed easily and pretty quickly. It gave my skin moist effect without looking too shiny, on the other side it also hydrated my skin amazingly. This is a kind of mask sheet that I really want. It hydrated and moistened my dry patches but did not make my T-zone more oily. Two thumbs up!
Just like other mask sheet I tried, unfortunately, the effect only lasted about a day. A day after using this mask I found my skin returned to its normal condition. But however, a day full of nice effect from this mask is enough to make me decide to repurchase this product. And maybe try the other variants too.
If you love glowy effect or have super dry skin type, you may skip this mask and go for other variants of Tonymoly Pureness 100 Mask Sheet (it has 9 different types of mask sheet for us). But if you have similar skin type with me which is oily combination and dehydrated, I recommend this mask for you. The thick sheet and less essence are just small gripes, once we get its nice result, everything is paid.
