I was contacted on Instagram by Soo’Ae Canada asking if I liked sheet masks. My answer was: Absolutely! They were very generous and sent me their line of face masks. They never asked me to review the masks, but I wanted to write a review. So, here are my thoughts on the masks. Each of the masks retail for $4 CAD.
They have several different types of masks:
- Sheet Masks
- Hydrogel Mask
- gel-like texture, thin, two-piece (eyes/nose and mouth)
- I liked that it had two pieces because then you can move the mask to fit your face properly (sometimes eye, nose and mouth holes don’t line up with my face)
- Premium Essence Mask
- thin, stretchy material
- Skin Friendly Mask
- thin, regular material (like other masks you get)
- Skin Gel Mask
- very durable, won’t rip (I tried pulling and it barely stretched)
- Hydrocell Mask
- thick, fibrous
- Hydrogel Mask
- Peeling Mask
- exfoliating mask
- Oxygen Bubbling Mask
- carbonated mask that foams up
- Sleeping Mask
- like a serum that you apply before bed and wash off in the morning
- Lip Patch
Refreshing Pore Care (Oxygen Bubbling Mask)
This all-in-one mask instantly purifies troubled skin with the combined power of activated binchotan charcoal, kaolin and bentonite clay, and oxygen bubbles. Active binchotan, powerful enough to purify water, is a renown anti-inflammatory known to refine and brighten skin.
This was the first time I used a bubble mask. My face felt tingly when I used it from the bubbles. It had the consistency of a clay mask and when I applied it to my face, after a few seconds, it would start to bubble and puff up a bit. It didn’t puff up as much as some pictures I’ve seen of bubble masks. When I would touch it, it would go back to the clay mask consistency and then start to bubble again after a few seconds. I rinsed it off with warm water and applied my moisturizer. My face felt clean and very smooth after using it.
I wasn’t a huge fan of the tingling sensation, but that’s to be expected of the bubble masks. If you like bubble masks, give this a try. I would rather stick to a sheet mask or clay mask.

JENCAT’S RATING: 4.5/5
These masks are a little more expensive than other sheet masks, but you can definitely see and feel that they are better quality than other brands. They all smell really nice.I think the hydrogel, skin gel and peeling masks were the best.
My face felt incredibly soft and plump after using the Donkey Milk Skin Gel Mask and the Purifying Brightening Peeling Gel (I wou. You could definitely get two uses out of one package of the peeling gel and the sleeping mask can last a while since a little bit goes a long way.
I think my favourites were the Donkey Milk Skin Gel Mask, Purifying Brightening Peeling Gel and the Black Charcoal Hydrogel Mask. I will definitely be purchasing those in the future.
The Super Intensive Hydrocell Mask was my least favourite one. I didn’t love the fibrous feel of the mask.
The lip patch made my lips feel super smooth and a bit tingly. It was also thicker than other lip patches I’ve tried and it didn’t really lay flat against my skin. It’s best to lie down when using it because it fell off while I used it.
The premium essence and skin friendly sheet masks were a similar material to the ones you get at The Face Shop. So, I wouldn’t purchase the nature essence ones since you can get similar ones for cheaper at The Face Shop or in packages at Winners. I think it’s more worth it to pay $4 for the peeling gel, hydrogel, and skin gel masks.
