Dr. Morita Sheet Mask Review + Grand Press Launch Photos

Sheet masks have always been part of my skincare routine; I’ve had my fair share, yes, some stand out some did not, but what I have here today is so much more than just the usual one, Dr. Morita sheet masks as history like no other sheet masks have. I will tell a quick background later on in this post.

Named as the no. 1 best-selling sheet mask in Taiwan and Hong Kong and also selected as the official sheet mask of 2014 Miss Hong Kong pageant, Dr. Morita is now ready to cater and improve the skin of all Filipinos, and I think I just met my skin’s new BFF – the Dr. Morita Hyaluronic Acid Essence Mask!

This sheet mask’s is loaded with essence people! I’d say you can even use an extra sheet mask (the dry one) and Dr. Morita can still soak it with essence for another use. The essence is rich and leaves a slight stickiness on the skin for at least 10 minutes to which made me conclude that it is best used at night before going to sleep. It’s almost as if you applied a layer of emulsion and serum onto your skin. Which is really nice if you think about it.

I also have a funny experience while using my first Dr. Morita Hyaluronic Acid Essence Mask, you will notice in the photo above that the mask didn’t quite fit my face, and I was like “D*amn this mask’s holes are just wrong! It doesn’t even fit” only to find out that the protective sheet was still there making it not fit perfectly. Still, it did not change the fact how this mask instantly cured the dry patches around my nose area and made my skin extra hydrated. I’ve decided to use it once a week as the effect actually lasts for about 2-3 days. My skin looked plumper and even close to achieving the glass skin effect, though I know for sure that continuous usage is recommended for a lasting result.

Dr. Morita Grand Press Launch + Pro Tips

During the grand press launch, Dr. Jou, CEO and R&D Head of Dr. Morita himself, told us the history behind Dr. Morita. The brand was established in Taiwan way back in 1934. After many years of skin care research and development, Dr. Morita took product development further by setting up a research center in Japan. Dr. Morita sheet masks with premium ingredients were developed in this facility in the year 2000, more than a decade before sheet masks were considered trendy!

Right now, Dr. Morita has six (6) variants to enjoy: the Award-winning and best-selling, Dr. Morita Hyaluronic Acid Essence Mask, Dr. Morita Intense Hydrating Serum Facial Mask, Dr. Morita Triple Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Essence Facial Mask, Dr. Morita Whitening & Moisturizing Essence Facial Mask, Dr. Morita Platinum Colloid & Hematite Extraction Whitening Black Facial Mask, and Dr. Morita Platinum Colloid & Black Pearl Extraction Moisturizing & Whitening Black Facial Mask. All of which are now available at Watsons and SM Beauty for only P74.00 each.

Proper Usage and Pro Tips:
  • Cleanse your face. Apply mask on the face and leave it for 10-15 minutes. Remove and gently massage around the face area for the essence to be fully absorbed by the skin. No need to rinse off.
  • Dr. Chun Hsu Jou, third generation of the brand’s founding family shares that their sheet masks already have toner, lotion, and serum. Those with dry skin may apply moisturizing serum or cream, if so desired. Hurray for one-step skin care!
  • Dr. Jou also recommends using Dr. Morita sheet masks before going to bed for revitalized skin in the morning.
  • Don’t let the excess leftover essence in the sheet mask package go to waste. Use it on your face and neck the next morning or night.
  • Don’t leave sheet masks on for more than the recommended time, as it will result in “reverse osmosis,” leaving your skin drier than the ideal.
  • Going on a trip? Sheet masks are a great travel-friendly skin care option!
  • Consider using a sheet mask daily for better results.
