Skin Care Saturdays: Etude House AC Clinic Intense Mask Sheet

My skin, as I get older, tends to behave itself more.  This is a blessing.  But when my skin doesn't behave, I get these super painful cystic pimples that are the size of a mountain - but all under the skin for about a week.  Then they explode into outer mountains that are made of pus and gross and make me feel like I should run up into a church steeple and ring bells.

This, obviously, is undesirable.

One of the things that helps quite a bit is putting on one of these Etude House sheet masks when I feel one of these pimples coming on.

They're sized pretty generously for sheet masks, as you can see.  Standard packaging too.  One thing I always notice right away is that these are hella saturated.  There's lquid all the heck over, and a lot in the package too.  I'll take that over not enough liquid, but jeezy creezy, it seems like a waste having so much left in the package.

Also: this smells terrible.  It works, but dear god, at what cost?

I can only recommend this to people who have awful, painful pimples like me.  If they're sort of annoying, don't bother - get something that doesn't smell like a tea tree is exploding in your nose.  But if they hurt, if they make you want to rip your face off, go for it.  Just don't say I didn't warn you.

I got these from KoreaDepart for 10.00 for five of them USD, so about two bucks each before shipping.  If you only want one or so at a time, pretty much any korean reseller should have these.
