My skin was really needing a boost in the radiance department lately. I've been sleeping poorly, not drinking enough, and I looked really tired! So I decided to test this Etude House Camellia mask for the first time. I tell you all about it after the jump!
Today I am presenting to you the Etude House Camellia mask that I purchased from the online store BoOonBox. Without further ado, let's take a look at it!
Claim and instructions
"Etude House 0.2 Therapy Air Mask is a hypoallergenic mask, made extra thin so that your skin can breathe while it embraces your skin tighter for better absorption of the active ingredients. The Camellia type (lifting and skin radiance), is just one of the series of the 0.2 Therapy mask which can be used as a daily sheet mask."
- Formulated with camellia extract that gives skin energy and glow, and adenosine that improves skin elasticity
- contains natural oil and camellia of 2000 ppm in a jelly oil type essence with excellent absorbtion ability
- Serves all skin types including sensitive skin (passed the sensitive skin test)
- free of Imidazolidinyl Urea, Poluacryamide, Triethanolamine, Mineral oils, Silicon oils, artificial fragrance and coloring.
After your cleanser and toner, carefully unpack mask and smoothen over face. Let it sit for 10-20 minutes. Pat in remaining essences for better absorption. Follow with your sleeping mask or go to bed as is.
You can apply mask 1-2x a week according to your needs, or daily with this kind of mask from Etude House
- For times when your skin feels tired or dehydrated, (or you yourself needs relaxion!), sheet masks are most convenient way to bring back your skin health in as little as 15 minutes!

I can't spot any particular irritant ingredient, on the contrary, many of the "good" ingredients, the main being Camellia leaf extract which will greatly contribute to improving skin tone and glow in your skin, adenosine which plump up your skin to diminish wrinkles and make your skin more elastic. There is also Licorice root and Ginger root extracts, which are known for giving firmness to the skin.
The serum in it is refreshing and more gel-like than other masks I've tried. This jelly serum is clear, but with a slight yellow tint that reminds me a lot of natural Aloe Vera. It also has quite a sticky feeling. As I got the mask out of the package, I had a bit of a hard time unfolding it, as the mask is very thin and the serum it soaked in made it very soft and sticky. But I eventually succeeded to unfold it and apply it to my face, with a cooling effect. I left the mask on for 20 minutes.
I removed the mask and lightly massage the remaining product onto my skin, which sank in completely 5 minutes later, leaving a quite sticky feeling on my skin. I applied it during my lunch break because I was planning to do my makeup and go out that evening and my skin was needing a little help.
I definitely noticed my skin brighter after applying this mask. Did I get a "lifting" effect? well, no that I notice, but maybe I need more applications to see the difference. The day I applied the mask, that evening I did my regular skincare routine and went to sleep. The following day I woke up to GREAT SKIN, radiant, firm, lovely smooth! This is not the first time that I do the "lunch break" masking, and although I enjoy it, the results really show the following day. That's something you might want to take into account!
The Etude House Etude House 0.2 Therapy Air Mask Camellia is available at BoOonBox online store and retails for 2.70 CHF (around 2.50 USD)
