I mentioned already that I'm not a very big fan of sheet masks because they never fit to my face shape. That doesn't mean that I never use them, though. Some month ago I received two (2) sheet masks which I really like because they are a bit different to the normal ones. I'm talking about the PRINCESS 3D MASK from [ETUDE HOUSE] which I will review now.

You can get the 3D MASK in 5 types:
- GINSENG (Korea's Joseon Dynasty Royal Secret Beauty Tip)
- HONEY & MILK (Egypt's Cleopatra Secret Beauty Tip)
- RED WINE (France's Marie Antionette Secret Beauty Tip)
- CHERRY BLOSSOM (Japanese Royal Family Secret Beauty Tip)
- LYCHEE (China's Poppy Secret Beauty Tip)

Since each mask cost overseas around US$5 I just bought GINSENG and LYCHEE for now!

Description: Mask sheet made from stretch material with a unique "three-dimensional" design that covers the entire face and neck. Essence formulated with natural ingredients for Princess inspired beauty treatment.
I tried out the GINSENG mask only and will use LYCHEE soon as well!
Each pack contains just 1 sheet with 35g and is kept in different colors. Furthermore, there is always a print of the 'princess', a building of the country and of the main ingredient on it. 
I got the masks of the Chinese and Korean princess!
The description is in Korean and English on the back. Some ingredients are Bambusa Vulgaris Water, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Alcohol, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Litchi Chinensis Fruit Extract, Prunus Serrulata Flower Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Robinia Pseudacacia Flower Extract, Panthenol, Macadamia Seed Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Lecithin and Parfum.
The sheet is very soft and the 3D design fits to my face shape much better than the usual ones. You apply it on your face, as well as on your neck!
The mask has a lot of fluid inside which you massage in your skin at the end. 
My skin feels refreshed and moisturized afterwards.
GINSENG is nice fragranced! I don't think it's a ginseng scent but I'm not sure about that coz I seldom smell on ginseng.
How to use: After cleansing and toning, adhere mask to facial surface. Fit to contours of face and leave on for 20~30 minutes. Remove mask and massage remaining solution into skin with hands.
Recommended interval for mask application is every 2~3 days for maximum efficacy.

Price (each): around 3,60,- €/ US$4.70 
Bought at: eBay (rubyruby76)    

What I love:  
The 3D design and my skin feels moisturized afterwards!

What I don’t like: 
It's a bit pricey for just 1 sheet. 

Will I buy this again? Yes, I would! Wanna try out the other ones, too.


  1. I've one of these too but I haven't tried it yet. I agree that it's a bit expensive even I'm asian :/

    1. Yeah, for a few more $$$ I can get a whole mud mask (container) already. And here it's just 1 sheet. ><

  2. In the Etude House official shop on Gmarket the masks are sold at 2$ or even less when they have a 30% discount day/week.
