Background and Information
I picked up this product at a local store for £0.89. I was not sent this sample in return for a review, nor am I being paid or sponsored for this review. This review is my honest opinion. I picked up this face mask as I have had previous positive experiences with this brand and their dead sea mud face mask, which I have also reviewed.
Since high school, I've never had to deal with problem skin. The only time I tend to get breakouts is in the week leading up to my period, and even then, they tend to appear around the hairline and forehead, which means I can cover them with my fringe if I have to.
I do, however, suffer from oily skin (especially around my forehead), and I have always been a little bit self-conscious about the blackheads that I get in the creases around my nose and my chin. This problem has gotten worse as summer has started, the outside temperatures have soared and I have been spending 3+ hours per day out in the sun. I bought this product with the primary intention of treating my oily skin.
It is important to know that I do not have a regular facial skin routine, other than the use of a mild cleanser before bed that I use to remove oils that have built up throughout the day. I also do not wear makeup daily, and when I do, I primarily use concealer, powder, and eye makeup (mascara, eyeliner and eyeshadow). I do not wear foundation, bronzer or any other face makeup.
How I Used This Face Mask
I used this product as directed on the packaging (pictured below).
Before using this product, I washed my face with warm water and a mild, moisturising soap, then I patted my face dry with a clean towel. I also tied my hair up into a bun to avoid getting my hair caught in the mask while it was still wet.
I opened the packaging by making a tear in the upper right-hand corner, according to the image below. The mask inside came folded up. I unfolded it and applied it carefully to my face. The mask was a bit too large for my face in some areas and needed to be folded to fit. It took less than a minute to apply the mask. The residue on my hands was easily washed off with warm water.
The instructions say to leave the mask on for 5 to 10 minutes. The tingling sensation on my face started to become very slightly overwhelming after 7 minutes, so I removed the mask at this point instead of leaving it on for the full 10 minutes. The mask stayed on firmly for this entire duration, even when bending over to reach something on the floor.
The mask was incredibly easy to remove, I simply peeled it off and put it in the bin. I used my hands to massage the residue into my face, and then I used a washcloth and some warm water to rinse my face.
Once the product was washed off my face, I patted it dry with a clean towel.
This mask contains spearmint which the packaging says, "wakes up" the skin. I was expecting this to simply be a mild and relaxing tingle, which is why I applied this mask as part of an evening relaxation routine. I underestimated this face mask! The tingling sensation was extreme, which I was not expecting, but it certainly did not feel unpleasant! 7 minutes of this tingling was enough for me though and I chose not to use this mask for a full 10 minutes.
The mask smells amazing! Tea tree is one of my favourite smells, and there was no chemical smell at all to the product, so I enjoyed the sensory experience that I got with this face mask.
Once removed this mask left my skin the softest and most silky that it has ever been! I have never achieved this level of softness with any other product. My oily areas were left completely oil-free, and my skin felt revitalized and rejuvenated. I achieved better results with this mask than I get from my daily cleanser.
Important Points to Note
This product is also ethically resourced, it is not tested on animals and it carries the 'Cruelty-Free International' symbol. It is also Vegetarian Society approved, which means that this product is safe for any vegetarians to use. However, "Lactoperoxidase (Milk origin)" is listed in the ingredients, meaning that it is not a vegan-friendly product.
I really like this face mask! The fact that I wasn't expecting how intense the tingles from this mask were, should not be a detriment to this product at all.
The application process was so easy and simple, it smells amazing and it provided me with the best results that I have ever had from a face mask. Personally, I would not use this product as my primary face mask in my skin-care routine, but only because I like to use a mask that allows me to relax completely; and this mask keeps you 'in the moment' rather than allowing you to 'drift off.'
But I absolutely recommend this product! The 7th Heaven Tea Tree Sheet Mask would be a perfect product to use before going on a night out, or to a gathering, as it revitalizes your skin and leaves you more than ready for the night ahead!

Questions & Answers
Question: How many times a week do I need to use this tea tree mask?
Answer: This mask only comes in a pack of 1, and you can only use the mask once. So 1 packet is one use.
If you are buying multiple, you can use it as frequently as you like. I would recommend only doing a face mask like this once per week though.
