Recommend: No to all three flavours mentioned - they are too mediocre. That being said, I want to try the really popular variations that made into @cosme's weekly ranking: Pearl, Green Tea, Rose, Seaweed and Grape. Hopefully these variations won't disappoint me!

For those of you who are interested in Pure Smile's sheet masks, they have 18 different flavours altogether:

It's almost like Pokemon at this point, gotta catch buy 'em all! On a side note, even though Pure Smile is a Japanese brand, their masks are made in Korea unlike the others reviewed in this entry.

PS: All of these masks come with eye flaps. Super convenient!!

PPS: Thanks Kay, Yu Ming, Milk & Cookiie and Nic for gifting these masks to me!
