Manyo Factory Active Fresh Herb Mask

So... I still need to review the oil which I've had much longer but hey I'm a sheet mask blogger. Is that a thing? Let's make it one. Much like the oil from this line I had filed this mask under "least exciting." I'm not usually wrong. I guess it was time. Disclosure: I now am connected to a shop selling Manyo Factory products. Manyo Factory Active Fresh Herb Mask
This product is a new addition to the Manyo Factory product catalog and it fits right in with  it's sibling the Active Refresh Herb Oil. I loved the first Manyo Factory mask I tried so I had to try another...
So what's this mask about?
Melodycosme explains the mask like this:
To soothe and refreshed tired skin
To regulate oil production skin
Cleanse and tone face.
Relax with mask on for 15-20 minutes and gently massage the remaining essence to the skin.

You know I've been seriously considering if sleep can be replaced with sheet masks so I love the idea of refreshing tired skin. I know most people skip the mask step (or gasp even more steps!) to catch some extra minutes of sleep but I've always considered sleeping to be a huge waste.
Spoiler Alert: at the time of this post there is not yet a sheet mask that will really replace sleep. Yet.
I  uh... sometimes don't even look at what's in a mask at all before throwing it on my face.Be a better person than I am. Thankfully this one has a pretty good line up going for it.
Manyo Factory Active Fresh Herb Mask

So avoid this mask if anything looks suspect. You know your skin better than I do.
Things I love:
  • Carbonated Water? Why I don't know it just seems neat. No the mask doesn't fizz
  • Tea Tree Extract is fairly high on the list here
  • Centella-More anti inflammatory power is always good
  • Licorice Extract should  be in very product. Brighten me!
  • Manyo Factory Made this and I typically love their stuff

I followed the directions and put it on my face...
Belive me my face was well cleansed before applying and I applied a moisturizing toner because my skin was in need. I wondered if this mask would help or hurt the situation. I wondered if I would be able to see a difference since my face was kind of a mess at the time.
How did it go?
Well if you follow me on Instagram then you know I used this after a clay mask made me blotchy (it was the cinnamon.) Here's an overview of the mask in action.
Scent: I know this is important to some people.  As the name implies the scent is sort of Herbal but very Mild. The scent didn't linger. I couldn't smell it once it was on my face more than a minute. If anything it was relaxing. Not what I was expecting.
essence: this sheetmask had a clear medium textured essence. Not gel like or watery. There was plenty to spread on my face before application.
material: the mask was thin but not so thin as to tear easily. It felt soft but not to the point of Mediental pillow level. The mask had good cling. I was able to do chores wearing it with no issues.
Longevity: It lasted about 30 minutes. I might have gotten longer if I hadn't sucked the moisture out of my face first with a clay mask.... I bet this would be great with the Active Fresh Herb Oil layered under it.
My face was significantly less red. The next day no irritation from my clay masking experience carried over. My skin looked clear, bright, and smooth. I almost want to recommend freaking your face out before using. It might just enhance the magic (I'm kidding.) What I mean to say is that the mask worked. And as for tired skin? I definitely stayed up all night and then sleep two hours the next night after using this mask. Did the mask give me super powers? No. But I think it helped prevent me from looking like I had gone on yet another anti-sleep-binge.
Final Rating
Solid 4.5 out of 5. The price of $3 a sheet would put me off but this is an occasional use type mask for me. My skin is often dry but not often inflamed or irritated... despite my constant abuse.  It's honestly the best tea tree mask I've ever used. Honestly the only thing keeping it form a 5/5 is the price... I'm not stopped from buying it but I won't keep 100 on and you know?
1- I want both my money and the time I spent using this product back. It should never be used and if I encounter another in my collection it goes to the trash bin.
2- The product is nothing special but not horrible. I would use it again or give it away if I got it as a free sample.
3-The product is nice enough but I would not repurchase because I have many better options. May be better suited for others
4-I really like this and would likely repurchase if I do not find something better.
5-I love this product and it has become a staple in my collection.
So now you know what the numbers mean!
Want to try it?
I got mine directly from Manyo Factory on their newly launched English Website. (NO more Google translate and buying services!)
It's also available from one of my favorite shops in California melodycosme.com 
It's $3 both places.
Update: as of 11/25/16 I am connected to a shop selling Manyo Factory products. I wrote this review before that time. I tried this mask before that time. My experiences with these products actually led to the shop. if you want to buy this mask and have it packed and shipped by my hands Check out Leturos Meloria a shop with a strange backstory and goal.

I probably use Instagram the most also CanIPutItOnMyFace… that’s funny to me because I had to be convinced to even download the application and then spend three years not using it. What can I say? I’ve turned into a sheet mask exhibitionist…
