Everyone is pretty much nuts for hydro gel masks and I had a fairly okay experience with an Etude House one so I thought I’d splurge for an Innisfree tea tree hydro gel mask for after my essays were finished. Well, they finished, I needed some face clearing action and I tried it out!
Fit: Oh hell, I don’t know what was going on. It has two parts and all this plastic stuff and ugh. It was a nightmare to get on my face and then it just didn’t fit fell. In my photo, I had to pull up the nose because my breathing was making it go in and out of my nostrils lol. I thought people said these fit better? Well, not for me.
Essence: I usually can’t feel much essence from hydro gels. I feel like half of it comes off with the plastic it’s attached to and all over my hands and stuff during my ultimate struggles trying to get the things on my face.
Overall: Hydro gels are maybe just not for me. It was a pain to get the pieces out of the package and I really hate when there are extra plastic pieces on the mask itself. Plus the stickiness that remained on my face wasn’t great. I did get some reduction in redness but overall, I wouldn’t spend the money on this. I think I’ll be sticking to cotton masks from now on.
