I’m sure everyone of us no matter what skin type we have and how perfect it might be, we have all come across those times when a sudden breakout decides to make an appearance! Alarming times I know and then you hunt for everything that claims to reduce acne or treat your scars and what not. It was on one such breakout that I came across the Innisfree its Real Squeeze Mask Tea Tree. This face mask is especially for the troubled skin so I decided to give this one a go.

My Experience with Innisfree its Real Squeeze Mask Tea Tree
Packaging- The sheet mask comes in a paper finish packaging which looks matte, however, the insides of the pack are metallic. The mask itself is folded in four and is soaked in a serum or essence. The packet has tea tree drawn all over it with a pretty spoon.
Fragrance- The tea tree face mask smells strong like – (guess what?) TEA TREE. :P The mask has a strong astringent smell to it which smells bitter and tastes even more bitter!!! No, I didn’t taste, just managed to get let some of the liquid seeps in my mouth the cool freak I am.
My Experience- The tea tree sheet mask promises clear skin and it’s no secret that the tea tree oil and extracts are known to work wonders for acne and oily prone skin. This mask found me at the right time when I was experiencing a bad breakout so I really wanted to see how this would work on the acne or acne marks. I always give my face a gentle scrub or use a light exfoliating face wash before putting on these masks at night.
The facemasks from the Innisfree sheet mask range don’t really fit well around the upper nose area. The mask doesn’t really sit down on the skin and the eye holes should have been wider. The tea tree mask is laced up in a transparent fluid which is slightly thicker than water and smells strongly of astringent or tea tree. Once the mask is draped on the face it gives a slight cooling effect and there is a light tingly feeling in the acne area. After 30 minutes I removed the mask and rubbed the excess essence on the skin. Next morning my acne marks which were really red a day before had slightly changed in color. Skin appeared to be less irritated. Also, the part of the skin where I have acne appeared to be slightly dried up.
If this is what the mask could do in days use, I’m sure it will bring down the acne to a great extent. However, there was no additional glowing or hydrating effects as such.

Would I Repurchase or Recommend?
Well I think I can definitely repurchase this for my acne-troubled skin till the breakout ceases, but other than that pretty average stuff.
