Hi everyone! I have been caught up in a whirlwind of tasks over the last week, so little late in putting up posts. The review of the Innisfree BHA Skin Clinic Sheet Mask should have seen the light of the day before quite some time, but I didn’t want to put up a review post just for the sake of it. It feels good to know you enjoy reading my posts, so I always make sure to give each post its due time. 🙂
Let me tell you, I’m loving using the Skin Clinic range of sheet masks from Innisfree in the hotter months loaded with humidity. I have using the Catechin variant before. The sheet masks usually carry a lot of serum in them, and I have an oily-combination skin. However, the Skin Clinic face masks are a delight in a way that they are comparatively lightweight than the It’s Real Squeeze masks. And I keep going back to sheet masks. To me, they are one of the easiest ways for the lazy ones to pamper their skin at home. 😀
Product Description :
- It contains BHA which cares for rough skin to keep the skin smooth.
- This 100% natural cotton sheet is made from soft cotton hairs around the cotton wool.
- It is transparent and thin and has good adherence on the skin, which allows for its good substances to be more effective delivered into the skin.
How to use :
- After cleansing, use toner to refine skin texture.
- Take out mask from package and remove film. Evenly adhere it to entire face, avoiding eye and lip area.
- Remove the sheet after 10-20 minutes and gently pat to allow the remaining formula to absorb into skin.
The Innisfree Skin Clinic masks are priced at INR 150 each. I got mine from nykaa.com.
My Overview of the Product :
The packaging of the Innisfree BHA Skin Clinic Sheet Mask is like any other sheet mask from Innisfree. The mask drenched in serum, and neatly folded in a white sachet. The BHA variant shows a beaker on the front, and instructions and ingredients on the back of the sachet. It has a faint fragrance which I don’t find too bothersome.
I absolutely adore the texture of the Innisfree Skin Clinic masks. Made from cotton wool, these are breathable and don’t sit heavily on my skin. 🙂
The immediate effect of putting on a face mask is the highly cooling and calming sensation which I totally love on my tired skin. I kept it on for around 25 minutes, and patted on the remaining essence on my face after discarding the mask. And voila! The essence absorbed almost immediately in my skin without feeling overly greasy. 😀
The Innisfree BHA Skin Clinic Sheet Mask is the most lightweight of all the sheet masks that I have tried so far. 🙂 I was pleasantly surprised at how this mask sufficiently hydrated my skin without leaving behind a greasy layer. My skin felt rejuvenated and plump. A small breakout that had come up, appeared calmer and a tad smaller too! With this mask, I did not feel the need to immediately wash my face. I was comfortable after using the mask in evening, and only followed with my regular nighttime CTM routine.
As with most other sheet masks, the BHA mask too imparted the glowing, dewy appearance to my face. My skin felt healthy and hydrated, and smooth to touch. Precisely the reasons why I love going back to sheet masks. 🙂 The effects however, last only for around 4 days. I’m used to it now though. 🙂

The Final Verdict :
Overall, I love, love the Innisfree BHA Skin Clinic Sheet Mask. It is just perfectly saturated for my skin type, hydrates my skin sufficiently without feeling greasy. It calmed my breakout, and soothed my skin. My skin felt soft and plump to touch. 🙂 There was this mild dewy glow on my skin post using this (as is the case with most other sheet masks), and it even felt a tad firmer! The Innisfree BHA Skin Clinic Sheet Mask is a perfect pick for oily/oily-combination skin in tropical, humid summers. 🙂
If you have not started on sheet masks yet, I highly recommend you to take your pick from the Skin Clinic masks of Innisfree. I will be using and reviewing more of these on the blog!
