Dearpacker Royal Black – Black Tea & Black Rose Mask : Review and Swatch

I am a sucker for skin care products. Especially Korean skin care products are something I really love. Reason being, Koreans are amazing when it comes to skin care. They are quite famous for their amazing, spotless skin and the way they take care of it.

The face shop is a Korean skin care brand that has made it’s place in Indian skin care industry. With their amazing, yet affordable skin care range, it has succeeded in stealing all skin care enthusiasts’ hearts. Recently, The face shop had limited edition offer of it’s colloboration with Dearpacker. They had a combo of one product of each brand, with amazing discount prices. Needless to say, I added one to my cart and hit ‘buy’ button.

Lets know more about the combo and of course my experience with it.

They had 5 combos targeting different skin needs.

I went for black tea and black rose mask combo.

It came in a transparent, sturdy pouch. This zipper pouch is sure making space in my travel bag. ! The combo has a cleanser from The Face Shop and the mask from Dearpacker.

I will save a separate review post for the cleanser.

It has avocado oil and glycerine which are moisturizing.
Fruit extracts, fruit and flower oils which are good for skin.

Added fragrances too..!!!

***And I have no clue why they have mentioned it as sheet mask, whereas it is clearly a face pack with cream consistency.!!! ***

Packing:
Outer cartoon looks royal with the black and golden combo. It has kettle, royal crown and saucer prints. Reminds me of Disney..!!

A12B656E-F79B-497F-A91A-25F19D8CFC0B

Directions to use, warnings, ingredients and other details of the product has been mentioned on the cartoon. ‘Directions’ mentioned on the pack is quite confusing. It describes the steps to use a sheet mask instead of a face mask..!!!

Inside of the outer cartoon has all the details printed in Korean language (I am totally assuming it as Korean because this product is made in Korea. I am not able to read it 😛 )

Product comes in this sturdy plastic jar. The cap of the jar has the same design as that of the outer cartoon. A spatula is also provided with the mask. So that you don’t have to dip fingers to take out the product.

Fragrance:
This has a very strong fragrance. It smells like Ayurveda medicine. Strong smell of green tea and hint of citrus note. I really didn’t like this smell. It is so strong that my eyes were watery. It lasts for some time and slowly fades away. If you have sensitive nose, I would say just try the tester once before buying it.

Color: It is light brown in color. You can see dried petals in the mask.

Consistency: It has gel like consistency. Neither thick nor runny.

My Experience:
My eyes were all teary at first when I opened the jar and tried applying.
Also it gave me tingling effect to my skin. I was really scared that it would damage my skin. It has that strong smell.!
But the smell started fading and it was quite mild in sometime. I left it on for 10 minutes or so and washed with water.

Pros:
1. Travel friendly packing.
2. It didn’t cause any breakouts.

Cons:
1. Falls on the pricier side. Since I got it in an offer, I am not complaining.
2. It has a very strong smell. Sensitive nose ladies, stay away.
3.

Will I Repurchase?
No. I don’t like strong fragrance products. So it’s a no.

Will I Recommend?
It didn’t do any magic on my skin. Since it also falls on pricier side, I am not recommending this to you.

Useful Sheet Mask Tips To Make The Most Of It

It doesn’t really matter whether you are a beauty and skin care freak or not; I am sure if you live in the world of Instagram, you have seen these sheet masks while scrolling down the infinite Instagram feed. Haven’t you???

You might know the basic about these sheet masks, let me share some of the tips and tricks to follow while using one. I am sure you will find it useful for your next pampering session with the sheet masks.

What is a sheet mask?

It’s a serum infused paper mask.

 

Why sheet mask???

Primary purpose of using a sheet mask is to add hydration to your skin.

 

Sheet mask or a moisturiser???

A good moisturiser adds moisture to your skin (which you all know). But sheet mask on the other hand has serum in it. Which in comparison with moisturiser, easily gets absorbed by skin. Thus, adding maximum moisture your skin needs.

 

Packing of sheet mask

Sheet mask comes in a pouch packing. A sheet mask which is dipped in serum.

 

Sheet masks before CTM or after CTM?

Ideally, it’s the M in the CTM where you moisturise. So, it’s always preferred to cleanse your face thoroughly and then use sheet mask. I personally skip toner.

Never use the sheet mask while the makeup is on or there is dirt on your face. Because adding moisture on makeup or dirt is going to clog pores which will end up in breakouts.

 

How to use a sheet mask?

Unfold the sheet mask and place it on your face. It ha these gaps for your eyes, mouth and nostrils.

 

For how long should I keep the sheet mask on?

Sheet mask should not be used more than 15 minutes. Reason being, 15 minutes is good enough for your skin to absorb the serum. If the sheet mask left more than that, the drying/ dried sheet masks can start absorbing moisture from your skin. So, doing no good to your skin.

How to make use of the excess serum in the pouch?

I love layering the serum on my face once I am done using the sheet mask. I also apply serum on my hands and feet sometimes. Ultimately, it’s a serum which adds moisture. Our hands and feet also need moisture, right?

 

Should I wash my face after using a sheet mask?

A big no. Because if you do so, it’s absolutely a waste of time and of course the money spent on masking. The serum which is absorbed by the skin should be left to see it’s magic. If we wash face, the serum will be gone, skin won’tbe benefited much.

 

Should I use moisturiser post sheet masking?

Umm it depends on your skin type. If you really feel the necessity for more moisture, you can. But usually serum in the sheet mask is quite heavy and most of us might not feel the need for moisture.

 

Should I use the sheet mask daily?

Even if you have dry skin, I don’t really suggest you use sheet mask every day. Because sheet mask is a huge source of moisture. Everything should be in moderation. So, I don’t personally prefer to add so much moisture every day to my skin.

 

How frequently should I use sheet mask?

If you have dry skin, 3 times a week should be good enough. If you have normal to oily skin, twice should be ok.

 

How long the results going to last?

Honestly, a day or max two.

 

Special Tip:

If you have oily, choose the sheet mask wisely. As your skin is already oily, you don’t need more moisture. Sheet masks like shea butter, avocado is something which you better avoid.

If your skin is prone to acne, sheet masks which is meant for skin type like green tea should be helpful. They add moisture also takes care of skin.
