Wow, I did not like this sheet mask at all from Papa Recipe. This is the Bombee Ginseng Red Honey Oil Mask Pack.
All was well as usual as I opened the packaging. There is a cute depiction of a yellow honeypot on the front of the box. There are 10 sheet masks inside the box and again like the other Bombee Fruitables from Papa Recipe, I liked how the sheet masks pouch were made of a paper quality than plastic.
Even each sheet mask pouch itself was laser cut to resemble the shape of a honeypot.
When I opened the Papa Recipe Bombee Ginseng Red Honey Oil Mask pouch, the sheet mask was of a rougher quality that the ones I had been using previously. It smelled nicely of the red ginseng and was very fragrant. I had a bit of difficulty unfolding the mask. It was easy to fold it in the wrong direction when unfolding. The sheet mask contained 20 mL of essence so after putting it on my face, there wasn’t a lot of residue left to smear back onto my face and neck for extra hydration. The essence was also very watery and thin, which I did not like.
(Actually, I later learned the sheet mask is eco friendly, which is an instant bonus in my heart.)
The mask instructions called to be left on for 20 to 30 minutes. I actually slept with this on for about 3 hours before I removed it. Thus, I can’t tell how much moisture was left at the suggested 30-minute mark. (When I continue to use up the rest of the sheet masks, I will update my findings.)
The mask left my face hydrated, but I’m just not a fan of the thin consistency of the essence and the rough papery texture of the mask itself. The one thing I do like is how good the sweet honey fragrance smelled and how it lingered on my hands afterwards (and my face).
I guess I’m also not a big fan of oil-soaked masks and prefer the generous essence-type masks. I might warm up to using this type of mask though, so time will tell.
I purchased this Papa Recipe Bombee Ginseng Red Honey Oil Mask for a really good deal from Sasa. The original price of one box was 200 HKD, but it was on sale for 70 HKD. Each purchase also came with a free box of the Fruitables sheet masks too (which is blogged here).
Update: I used the mask again, and the red ginseng oil is so fragrant and rich. It’s actually a really high-quality material mask. I’m still not used to the oiliness of the mask, but sometimes oil masks are good for your skin too.
Reading the ingredients more carefully this time, I noted the following recognizable ingredients: Hydrogenated caster oil, camellia japonica seed oil, evening primrose oil, rosa canina flower oil, honey extract, propolis extract, ginseng root extract, grapefruit seed extract, licorice root extract, and ginger root extract. Now that I’ve had experience reviewing so many other masks so far, this Papa Recipe Bombee Ginseng Red Honey Oil Mask is a really good one because of the high content of its quality materials.
