In this K-beauty review, we’ll be checking out the Real Nature Tea Tree Mask Sheet by the popular Korean cosmetics brand Nature Republic! We may be in the last stretch of winter, but warmer months are quickly approaching! As such, it’s important to have a good, natural skincare routine since the hotter months can really stress out our skin from harmful UV rays, as well as from excess oil and sweat. Sun protection and staying on top of breakouts is essential to keeping skin clear and healthy in warmer weather, especially since we’re likely to be outside more. Sheet masks are a great way to boost hydration and soothe sensitive skin to help achieve that radiant summer glow, and this mask is especially equipped to get the job done. Let’s check it out!
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
The Real Nature Tea Tree Mask Sheet is formulated with tea tree oil, which has antimicrobial properties and is known to soothe skin, fight acne, treat psoriasis and eczema, fade scars, and more. The mask ingredients also include chamomile, lavender, lemon balm, eucalyptus, and peppermint extracts, all of which can provide similar soothing and healing benefits for skin and skin conditions. The mask also hydrates and moisturizes, increases product absorption, and makes skin appear more radiant.

The mask material is thin but sturdy, however it was a bit difficult to unfold. The serum is thin, light-feeling, and not sticky. The scent is heavier in the package, but not overpowering. It doesn’t smell like tea tree oil at all, a plus for those that aren’t fans of the strong scent it has. It’s herby, a little earthy, and just slightly floral- reminiscent of a summer garden. I personally really enjoyed the fragrance.
I wore this in the car (hey, don’t judge hehe) with cold air blowing- I appreciate it when a sheet mask has a cooling effect on its own, but chilling your mask in the fridge or sitting in front of a fan are both good ways to keep it cool on your face. Not only does it feel nice (especially on a hot day), but it can help soothe your skin which is always an added bonus. The mask was relaxing and didn’t cause any feeling of irritation. It also stayed on without a problem while sitting upright the entire 30 minutes I wore it. The package didn’t have much leftover serum to use after, but what was left on my face absorbed very quickly with no feeling of stickiness.
The serum was adequately moisturizing, and it made my skin feel smoother and look brighter as most masks do, but unfortunately my skin wasn’t any less red afterward. However, while I didn’t notice too much improvement the following day, my mild acne did start to improve the day after that with no other changes to my skincare routine. While I wasn’t super wowed by it, it was still moisturizing and a nice experience overall, especially for the $2 USD price tag. I’d like to try it again to keep testing how it affects blemishes.
