For the longest time, cosRX didn’t have any sheet masks. Then they came out with Holy Moly Snail Mask back in 2016 (review here) and it was a fan favorite. Then nothing. Nada, ziltch for the longest time again. This year, cosRX decided to comeback with not one, not two but three drops at once! And they covered the bases here ~ soothing, nourishing and hydrating. Jolse, a premier K-Beauty online store, sent me two of the 3 masks to review and I had the other mask already. I will say that I do wish cosRX would renew their Holy Moly Snail Mask, as that was a great skin brightener, formulated with ginseng and snail.

CICA Calming True Sheet Mask contains a CICA-7 Solution formula, consisting of centella plant, leaf and root extracts and its concentrated derivatives: asiaticoside, asiatic acid, madecassic acid and madecassoside.

This also has calming soothing chamomile and healing, anti-sebum tea tree, along with hydrating betaine, pantolactone and glycerin. This does contain alcohol, but I have oily skin, so I don’t mind it as much. The sheet mask is thin, but not too thin that it stretches out of shape or tears and it fits fairly well. It has a very faint scent of alcohol with a very watery essence. It does feel quite refreshing on my skin and cools my skin down nicely. After I removed the mask, my skin felt cool and very hydrated but I didn’t notice any anti-inflammatory benefits. This does not leave a sticky or tacky residue, so it is a nice morning mask and it does feel good if your skin is overheated.

This mask comes with a plastic protector unlike the other two masks ~ I am not sure why as this mask is actually the most plush and has a thicker material. The essence is watery but it has a much more slippery feel and IT.SMELLS.LIKE.COCONUTS!!! This mask is really nice on, fit is decent and feels good on the skin. Despite the thicker material, it adhered well on my skin. Once I removed it, my skin felt very moisturized but again, with no sticky or tacky residue. My skin actually looked more refreshed and glowing ~ if you are oily or combo/oily skinned, you will really enjoy this as you get a glow up without all of that extra dewiness!

The Triple Hyaluronic Water Wave Sheet Mask is a bonus mask that I was gifted. This one is part of the Hydrium line, which contains panthenol aka vitamin B5. Panthenol helps cellular renewal, is an effective moisturizer and anti-inflammatory. Panthenol is a natural humectant, which retains moisture and hydrates the skin. It also is a good lubricant on the skin, making skin look soft and smooth. Except for the gel cream, these products also contain hyaluronic acid, which not only hydrates your skin, but helps attract and bind moisture to your skin as well. This mask is cruelty free
Triple Hyaluronic Water Wave Sheet Mask is a mask I wish I had a few more of! Why Triple? Because it contains a triple hyaluronic acid formula which will help attract moisture and deeply improve hydration to your skin: sodium acetylated hyaluronate, hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid and sodium hyaluronate.
But wait, there is more hydrating ingredients in here ~ along with panthenol, there is pantolactone, another humectant that leaves skin radiant and plumped up. acts as a humectant to help the skin retain moisture, leaving skin looking glowy, healthy and plump. Humectant amino acid betaine is also an anti-irritant, providing silky smooth skin and soothes and calms skin. This also contains calming, soothing and healing herbs of centella and chamomile. This does contain alcohol in it, so it might not be the best for very dry skin types.
The very thin, yet strong mask is made from an eco-friendly, biodegradable material and the fit is great The essence is very watery and lightweight. Despite the alcohol in here, I didn’t pick up the scent of alcohol ~ the alcohol contributes to the refreshing, cooling sensation of the mask and the scent is a very faint herbally smell, to the point where I would say it doesn’t smell like anything. This feels really nice on and afterwards, my skin felt so cool to the touch, hydrated and refreshed. Another great hot day skincare product to use
