So, it’s been a while since I have posted any sheet mask reviews but now I can finally sheet mask again, after my biopsy on my temporal artery! The first sheet mask review I am bringing you is one for a mask that was chosen by the lovely @my.seoul.sister on Instagram. She picked out two Polatam masks for me to choose between – the Hydro Radiance or the Firming Radiance. I decided to go with the Firming Radiance.
This was also an entry into @my.seoul.sister Birthday Giveaway she has on Instagram at the moment too! You should definitely go give her a follow !

I was sent a selection of Polatam masks from BeautEastSphere for review purposes, so a big thank you to them for giving me the opportunity to try these masks, as I’d been longing to try them.
Make sure to give @BeautEastSphere on Instagram too!
💖💖Double cleansing method: I talked a lot about it this week end! For us AB lovers, it's part of our normal routine but loads of people are still unfamiliar with this method! . 💖💖Why should you double cleanse? Simply because oil and water don't mix. You need an oil cleanser to draw out excess oil, make up, spf… and a water based cleanser to clean other impurities. . 💖💖So if oil and water don't mix, how do you wash off the oil cleanser? Oil cleansers specifically made for skincare are water soluble. Adding water to it will change its formula into a non greasy (surprisingly) emulsion that enable you to wash your face. . 💖💖Visit www.beauteastsphere.com for our favorites double cleansing products!!

This mask was an absolute joy to use. On opening, you are greeted with a very subtle, fresh slightly floral scent. It’s very subtle though so not at all overpowering or anything. Straight away you can see there is a whole heap of creamy white essence inside.
The mask was absolutely saturated in it!
The Fit & Wear
The fit of the mask was pretty good I have to say and it does come a little thicker than most masks as it is Cupro Fiber.
The eye holes could have done with being just a little further apart but other than that, the fit was great. It adhered to my face really well with no slippage. That surprised me given how slippery it felt whilst applying it. It didn’t budge at all though.
It felt really nice on my skin and I found it to be very cooling and soothing too.
The length of time suggested to wear was 10-15 minutes but I left it on for 20 because it was nowhere near dry in any areas of the mask.
My skin type: combination/oily with breakouts. (NB: my skin was previously dry/sensitive but due to change in meds, my skin has completely changed)
After removing the mask my skin was very hydrated, definitely more radiant and glowing. There was also a bouncy firmness to my skin that wasn’t there before too. Lots of essence remained on my skin and I patted this gently in to aid absorption. There was a very light tackiness until I applied my moisturiser. After that, it was just fine.
I’d say it definitely lived up to its claims. My skin was still the same this morning and as I type this, still looks & feels just as good. So the effects, personally, are lasting a good while.
My Verdict: 9/10
I would definitely recommend this mask and would purchase in the future.
If the other Polatam masks are as good as this one, then I am expecting fab results from them too because this mask is certainly a winner in my book!
Now, this mask isn’t the cheapest to purchase and personally, it would be one I would save for a special treat. I think it’s a little pricey to use every day of the week, especially if you’re on a tight budget. Is it worth the £6.00 price point? In my opinion, absolutely!
- £6.00 – one mask
- £30.00 – 6 pack
