Since moving to Hong Kong I have been fascinated with sheet masks and have been trying a few different ones and have had a few favourites and a few ones that have not agreed with my skin. Nature Republic have a big reputation when it comes to skincare specially in Asia and in Hong Kong they are pretty big as well. So I decided to go and get a few to try out. I got the Shea Butter and Bamboo Aqua Gel Masks.


 I bought mine from Bonjour for HK$12 each, which is absolutely cheap. The masks are the gel types not exactly like the usual sheet masks but came in two different parts one for the top part of your face and one for the lips and below. Its made of a thick jelly type and very sticky so I couldn't take pictures, it was so stick that I took ages to open it up. 

Nature Republic Aqua Gel Masks

You have to apply the mask once you have cleansed and toned your face but before you apply your moisturizer. Once you feel that the gel has fully absorbed you can remove it but if not it is recommended to keep it on for 20 minutes. The Shea Butter Gel Mask is supposed to give moisture to tired skin and the Bamboo Gel Mask is supposed to soothe irritated skin. 

After wearing both masks my skin felt heavy and sticky. I didn't feel any benefit and the next morning there was reside left and my skin felt extremely oily. I think both masks since they are quite thick would suit dry skin much better than my oily skin type. Sadly I was disappointed and will not be buying these Gel Type Masks. I prefer the sheet type masks much better and will be sticking to them.

I would recommend it for normal to dry skin types as it is a bit heavy for oily skin. Have you tried any kind of Gel Masks? What do you think if these kind of masks?
