Review: CNF The Iceland Mask Peach Sheet Mask

In a recent Korean beauty haul I bought a set of sheet masks that have Iceland Glacial Water listed as a main ingredient. The main thing that drew me to them is the different sheet mask flavours, that feels more like the right word than scent, as these include Mangosteen (you can find my review of that here) and today’s mask Peach. These just sounded so refreshing and I was intrigued to see how well they’d work compared to other Korean and British sheet masks I’ve tried.

I think the company that makes these is CNF, that’s the company name in the contact info on the back, and it’s not one I’d heard of before finding these. The Iceland Mask Peach sheet mask is supposed to be the moisturising one of the set and the set of five cost £5.91 with a silicone puff to help pat the sheet mask on from the f2plus1 eBay store, it’s cheaper now so it may change. Given how impressed I was with the first I tried I was really looking forward to this one so took it away with me when I stayed in Wales.

Review: CNF Mangosteen Sheet Mask

mangosteen-sheet-mask-1I do love a good sheet mask and, in my recent Korean Beauty haul, I found some new ones I’ve never heard of before, this The Iceland Sheet Mask in Mangosteen is one of them. I think the brand is CNF, there’s not much in English and I’m going by the contact information at the bottom of the sachet on the back. I got the set of five for £5.91 with a silicone puff so they’re around £1 each, a lot cheaper than sheet masks available in the UK.

Until a couple of years ago I’d never heard of a mangosteen, then my parents found them cheap on the market so came home with some. They’re a bit like a lychee in scent and flavour but look like the photo on the sachet. This particular sheet mask is aimed at calming your skin and, as my skin has been misbehaving a bit recently, I thought it would be a good one to start off my once a week face masks to see if I can get through my collection!

Korean Beauty Haul

korean-beauty-haul-header

I recently made another order from the F2plus1 eBay store for Korean beauty products, I think it seems to be this time of year that I make these orders. A couple of these products were ones I’ve had my eye on for a while and I may have bought some more sheet masks. I already have enough to last months but these ingredients sounded unusual and I do love anything lychee or mangosteen so they ended up in my basket.

I’m always a bit wary about ordering from eBay, especially when it comes to cosmetics as there are so many fakes out there and I think a fake plastic figure is one thing but something you put on your skin is another. But I trust the f2plus1 store as I’ve bought from them before. They also have an online store away from eBay, BeautynetKorea, which I haven’t used but think it’d be as trustworthy. It does take a while to get here, two or three weeks in general, but considering it’s all the way from South Korea that’s pretty quick.
