Sheet masks are the hottest trend in skincare because of their portability, effectiveness, and ease of use. I am totally obsessed with sheet masks as well. If you have been to Sephora, you would know they have a whole line of masks that claim to help your skin in a specific way. After experiencing good results from Sephora Pomegranate and Orchid sheet masks, I picked their Rose and Avocado variants this time. This Rose face mask claims to provide deep moisture and brightening properties through natural rose extract.
Price: 100 Thai Bhat (INR 200); however, it is priced for INR 430 in India
Product Description: Each of Sephora’s masks is infused with a different active ingredient for relaxing the skin and achieving a brighter, more revitalized complexion. The fiber masks perfectly hug facial contours for better penetration of the active ingredients. These masks are dermatologist tested and are quick and easy to use.
My Experience with Sephora Collection Ultra-hydrating and Brightening Rose Face Mask
Packaging: Sephora masks come in color-coded sachets matching their core ingredient. This Rose face mask comes in a true rose color packaging with a picture of roses. It contains one white sheet mask drenched in serum, and it is a single-use pouch. Its sleek packaging makes it so travel friendly. The sheet is soft and has the symbol of Sephora embossed on it throughout. Although the sheet is a bit bigger for me, it fits on my face quite well. Probably people with thin and long face may find the sheet even bigger. The ingredients list mentioned in the outer cover is unfortunately in Chinese, but one thing is for sure—that is, it is enriched with natural rose flower extract made in Taiwan!
Texture: The texture of the serum in the sheet is not liquidy or sticky. The moment I took the soggy sheet out, I thought it would be messy to fix the sheet on the face. But that was not the case. The serum did not drip nor was the sheet slippery. This quality makes it one of the best on-the-go sheet masks. The leftover serum in the sachet could also be rubbed into the skin, thus there are no wastage. It smells like roses and was amazing.
Performance: Sephora Rose sheet mask is so easy to use. Just remove this sheet mask from the pouch, gently unfold it, simply place it right on your face, press it gently on to your skin so that it sticks on your entire face, sit down relaxing, and allow all the moisture in the mask to sink into your skin. It easily adheres to my skin without stinging or irritating, and I can easily carry on with my daily chores. There are ample cutout space for the eyes and lips so no worries about those sensitive areas. I do feel a cooling sensation on my face the moment I slip it on my skin. Then the serum tends to get absorbed on my skin. I massage the excess serum in the sachet on my neck. The serum is a little sticky and made my skin feel a little warm and tingly. It works best when I allowed this mask to completely dry on my skin, meaning I did not remove the mask until all the moisture is gone.
When the mask is completely dry, I pulled off the mask and was thrilled to see that my skin actually did look brighter and glowing. It also looked very refreshed, soft, and hydrated. Although there was not a super obvious visual difference, my skin felt so much better after the mask. This is a mask to use in the evening and let sink in overnight, meaning it is best for skin pampering, and not for skin prepping for any special occasion. The effect stays on for 3 days if my skin did not get exposed to the sun too long, which is indeed great for a sheet mask. Overall, I am happy with its results.

Would I Recommend/Repurchase Sephora Collection Ultra-hydrating and Brightening Rose Face Mask
If people want to add or bring back brightness to their skin, do try this mask and you will not be disappointed. I have already used 3 sachets, and I have only 3 more left. I wish Sephora opens up in Chennai soon before I finish them off. By the way, Sephora is coming to Express Avenue, Chennai.
