I wish DHC would consider boxing their sheet masks at a more affordable price! Price aside there were also a few other issues I had with the DHC Alpha-Arbutin White Mask. This is a thicker fibered cotton mask kinda like the older My Beauty Diary masks from the past. It’s not saturated terribly with product and it has a rather poor fit on my face. The mask is just too thick to let any of the essence to absorb into my face during the wear. And as I said it was a bit dry…! I like a “wetter” mask with a thinner fiber that won’t tear during the wear this was very thick with very little essence. I had to keep adjusting it as well since it didn’t quite fit my face correctly. It also had side panels towards the upper portion of the mask. I suppose this was so the mask would fit at your temples but it just ended up getting caught in my hair which annoyed me. Results were unfortunately not instant. Depending on the sheet mask you use results vary but in many cases are clearing visible after a single use. Unfortunately, I read reviews stating brighter skin was visible right after use but I didn’t see anything brighter about my skin. As I said above, arbutin happens to an ingredient you need to be diligent with so I really didn’t expect it to whiten with a single treatment! If you’ve never used an Asian facial sheet masks, like the one you see below, it’s simply a mask with cut outs for your eyes, mouth, and nose that’s heavily saturated with an essence. There are a variety formulas to choose from including whitening ones, brightening ones, anti-aging ones, etc…etc….etc….you place the mask on your face, wait for 15-30 minutes, remove, and press the palms of your hands gently into your face to allow the essence to absorb. That’s it! No rinsing after! Follow up with your other skincare. I used to use sheet masks like every single week night but now I use them 3-4 times a week. As much as I’d love to recommend DHC Alpha-Arbutin White Mask this one disappointed me. In a sea of inexpensive facial sheet masks this formula proved expensive and didn’t produce the results I wanted in a single treatment! Too bad because I really love DHC products.
