This was sent to me by a great friend of mine, along with the Lululun masks. Like Lululun, this mask pack was not individually wrapped, but housed in one package just like using wet wipes (baby wipes, etc.). It’s one of those things you either love it for being less wasteful towards the environment, or you might find it icky to expose a whole stack of sheet masks every time you open it. Anyhow, this was meant to be used up within a month (32 times, or fewer, if you use them also on your nasolabial folds).

40ml for 64 pieces isn’t a whole lot. I was spoiled by the generous Korean made cloth sheet essence masks that give you at least 30ml per mask, soaking wet masks that you can leave on for at least a good 40 minutes and not have them dry up like used tissues afterwards. The instructions said to leave on for 10 minutes, but each piece contains so little of the essence, it dries up within 5 minutes (and that’s on a humid summer day). There is nothing satisfying about using these, other than sheer convenience. I am not fond of touching a few pieces at a time and having to put the extras back into the box. It’s not hygienic. Towards the bottom when you are nearly finished, you will find the remainder not quite moist enough to even leave on for 5 minutes.

As for the efficacy…I noticed no noticeable results on my under eye areas or on my nasolabial folds. I don’t have lines around my eyes, and I can’t expect these barely moist masks to miraculously fill the folds caused by expression. I don’t think these really did anything…immediate or long term, not even very moisturizing. Though the price seems very affordable, I would much rather have a highly saturated sheet mask to use once a week and see my skin look more plump immediately after.
