korean skincare


Being a beauty blogger, I am always in search of new products to try out. For me, skincare has always been way more essential than makeup. I might now pick up the hottest lipstick or highlighter, but I’m always eager to explore new skincare launches. So, when I saw Nykaa came up with its own Korean sheet masks- Nykaa Skin Secrets Face Sheet Mask with some desi ingredients, I cannot hold my excitement. There was a two-for-two offer going on pre-ordering the sheets, so I got four of them. I am going to review the Gooseberry + Papaya for Nourished + Brightened Skin sheet mask today.

Being a beauty blogger, I am always looking for new skincare and makeup products to try and review on my blog for my readers. Recently, it has been 80% skincare and 20% makeup which I am really enjoying because as they say, the more flawless the canvas the prettier the painting (Ahem, I just invented it). Anyway, recently I saw some very interesting stuff launched by Nykaa. They launched their very own Nykaa Skin Secrets Face Sheet Masks. The sheet masks weren’t the interesting part but their desi ingredients were. I love how they have merged India and Korea in such a fancy way. All the ingredients used in these sheet masks are 100% originated from India and made to target specific skin concerns. Today, I am reviewing two of their 11 variants- Gooseberry+Papaya and Pear+Hyaluronic Acid

Price– ₹ 100 (Buy here)

Nykaa Skin Secrets Face Sheet Mask range is powered with two hero ingredients in each mask. They have launched a collection of total 11 sheet masks focusing on Indian skin and their problems.

Product Description

Carefully chosen, we bring you 11 variants that are specially made to target all your skin concerns. Tucked away in our grandma’s diaries, these ingredients are humble yet potent. Passed on from generations to generations, they have never ceased to mark their vitality even in the modern world. Now, we have brought to you the most-precious beauty secrets in the form of our Nykaa Skin Secrets sheet masks.

Why Nykaa Skin Secrets sheet mask?

  • Dual ingredients for dual benefits.
  • Exquisite Indian origin ingredients for maximum benefits.
  • Each variant caters directly to all targeted skin concerns.
  • Benefit-driven to ease the consumer purchase.

How to Use-

Unfold and lay over on clean and toned skin. Relax for 10-15 minutes. Remove the mask and gently pat the excess serum onto your skin, until fully absorbed. Massage for good blood circulation that results in a healthy glow.

My Experience with Nykaa Skin Secrets Face Sheet Mask Range-

Now, let me tell you what I honestly feel about this particular range of sheet masks.

Packaging- The packaging is very nicely and meticulously done. An image of the key ingredients of the corresponding masks is printed on the packaging itself. Also, the name of the ingredients and the effects of the mask is also written boldly on the pack. So, the user is completely aware of what they are putting on their face and there is no room for confusions.

Fitting- The fitting of these sheets masks is what makes it my favourite. The holes are made keeping Indian face shapes in mind. A difficulty that I face with most of the Korean sheet masks is that the holes for the eyes are not wide enough to fit me. But Nykaa’s sheet masks have bigger eye holes so that they fit people with bigger eyes.

Consistency of the Serum/Essence- I have never used a sheet mask before that doesn’t come with a thick, hard-to-absorb serum/essence. My experience with Nykaa Sheet Masks was outstanding because the Nykaa face sheet masks are soaked in a serum that is very lightweight and absorbs quickly into the skin. The essence does not make my skin oily, it just adds the right amount of moisture.

The 11 variants of the Nykaa Face Sheet Masks are-

  1. Gooseberry + Papaya (for Nourished + Brightened skin)
  2. Almond + Yogurt (for Revitalized + Nourished skin)
  3. Tea Tree + Aloe Vera (for Clear + Moisturized skin)
  4. Black Mud + Aloe Vera (for Purified + Hydrated skin)
  5. Rice + Camelia (for Nourished + Radiant skin)
  6. Rose + Goat Milk (for Nourished + Radiant skin)
  7. Lemon + Honey (for Lightened + Glowing skin)
  8. Avocado + Moringa (for Nourished + Hydrated skin)
  9. Pearl + Hyaluronic Acid (for Firm + Brightened skin)
  10. Charcoal + Bamboo (for Purified + Nourished skin)
  11. Turmeric + Coconut (for Revitalized + Radiant skin)

I bought 4 from the list- #1, #7, #9 and #11. I will review #1 Gooseberry + Papaya Face Sheet Mask and #9 Pearl + Hyaluronic Acid Sheet Mask today.

From my childhood, I have been told numerous benefits of natural ingredients by my mother. She is all about DIYs. I remember she used to make a papaya mask for face and an amla concoction for the hair. I have seen papaya doing wonders for my face. It adds a healthy, natural glow to your face instantly.

I think this particular mask is very average when it comes to the results. I have not seen any visible or drastic change in my skin except for it made it really nourished and clean in a way. I have not seen any of my spots getting faded or skin clarity. Maybe with regular use, it can work on that front.

Nykaa Skin Secrets Face Sheet Mask Pearl+Hyaluronic Acid does what it claims. I could feel my skin a bit firmer after the use. It might not make you fairer (because you know that’s not possible!) but definitely would brighten up your face a lot. The serum penetrates into the skin very quickly giving it the proper amount of hydration. This mask is a great option to get an instant pick-me-up before any party or occasion.

Overall, I loved both the masks for the instant glow that they provide. These masks are nothing extraordinary so don’t expect them to completely change your skincare game. These are only for ₹100 thus you can definitely give these a shot. There is a ‘buy 5 get 3 free‘ offer going on on these right now. So, it could be a great opportunity to stock them up or give them a try.

If you are following me on Instagram and Snapchat (Username- sayantinee), you might know that I received a package from Skin18.com a month ago. You guys know me, I take forever to review skincare products. I tried them one by one, leaving a gap of almost a week to know how each of them would react to my skin and then I come to the conclusion. Now you know the reason for the delay!

Reviews of the Products I got from Skin18.com

Here are the mini reviews of the products I received from Skin18.com. I have combination skin that becomes very oily during summers. All views are based on my personal experience. So, it may vary from others. Let’s start-

My Haul from Skin18.com & Mini Review| cherryontopblog.com

Beauty Friends II Essence Mask Sheet Pack (Royal Jelly)-This sheet mask is supposed to moisturize your face and it does that perfectly. The description tells you to apply it on a well-cleansed face and leave it there for 20-30. You are not supposed to rinse your face off after removing the mask, allowing the nutrients to soak into your skin. This mask made my skin soft and supple. I applied it in the night and the effect lasted till the next morning. This mask is priced at $0.80.

Four Season Multi Vita Brightening Active Mask- This mask, as the name suggests, contains multi vitamins such as Vitamin B5, Vitamin C and Vitamin E which are known to work wonders for your skin. This mask is supposed to do a lot of things like whitening, regeneration, antibacterial wound treatment, anti-aging, moisturizing, prevention of acne, prevention of allergy and immunity control. I just used this for once and I have only noticed a revitalized skin after using it. It does not do anything to the complexion of your skin. This is priced at $0.95.

Luke Mugwort Nose Cleansing Strip // Luke Lemon Tea Tree Nose Cleansing Strip- I never used a nose strip before I got to try these. You have to apply it on slightly wet nose for them to stick to the nose perfectly. You need to let them sit there until they become dry and then you have to pull them off the nose. I showed a demo of it on my Snapchat if you remember. Both the strips works amazing on blackhead and whiteheads. They remove them perfectly. Yes, it hurts a bit but it is definitely worth the pain. I am looking forward to getting a box full of them! The Lemon tea tree one has a strong tea tree fragrance which some of you may not like. I did not have any problem with that. They are priced at $0.65 each.

It’s Skin Todak Todak Pack Nutrition (Wash-Off Mask) with Honey and Coconut- If you guys follow me on Snapchat you will know the whole process of me trying this mask for the first time. It is basically a gel based face pack, almost has a jelly-like texture to it and it is transparent. It doesn’t dry off on your face, unlike other wash-off masks. When I tried it for the first time,  I was not satisfied with it. But, after that, I found it to be great for my skin. It moisturized my skin very well, plus, it made my skin tighter. It can be used as a wash-off mask and also as a sleeping mask. It feels a bit warm on the and extremely hydrating. This pack contains coconut and manuka honey. It comes in a 10ml packaging which good for at least two uses. I used it for four times. This one is a bit pricey, $2.85 for a 10ml pack.

Overall, I liked these products from Skin18.com a lot. All these products are tested to treat various skin problems. I myself have seen and experienced good results on my skin. They did not cause any allergies or breakouts. I am looking forward to trying their eye-patches and more sheet masks. I highly recommend the sheet masks* from Skin18.com.

*Sheet masks are ready-made masks made of disposable cotton sheets, drenched in a solution of nutrients that are supposed to work as a facial treatment for various purposes.
