What does the product description say?
"Paper face mask packed with rich galactomyces ferment filtrate, aloe vera leaf juice and cucumber extract to effectively improve rough textures by restoring skin elasticity, while also promoting moisturizing properties that leave skin revitalized."
WIMJ summary

This product contains good ingredients to attract water to the upper layer of the skin. These ingredients are called "humectants": betaine, galactomyces ferment filtrate.

When humectants are on the surface of the skin, they “pull in” the moisture from the outside environment, or from within deeper layers of the skin. If the air is dry, humectants can speed up the moisture loss from the skin. This is why it is a good idea to use another product on top of this one to help "seal in" the moisture (look for ingredients like dimethicone, squalane, oils and butters).

Ingredients by volume

Ingredient Estimated concentration
Plain old water
40% - 60%
One of the best moisturizing ingredients. Naturally present in skin. It attracts water to the upper layer of the skin working as a humectant
4.5% - 6.7%
A yeast ferment filtrate (also known as Pitera - a trademarked name for the filtrate reserved by the SK-II brand). It helps attract water to the upper layer of the skin, can help neutralize antioxidants and can be helpful in evening out the skin tone. It might be somewhat helpful in preventing premature skin aging but solid evidence is lacking. A small manufacturer study also shows that, when used in high concentrations, it can help reduce sebum production and help against blocked pores
3.4% - 5.1%
Helps attract water to the upper layer of the skin and improves the product texture
2.7% - 4%
2% - 3%
An extract from fungus (mold) that typically appears on rice. It can help attract water to the upper layer of the skin, might help neutralize free radicals and possibly somewhat reduce hyperpigmentation
1.6% - 2.5%
1.4% - 2.1%
1.2% - 1.8%
Traditionally used to treat sunburns, dermatitis and inflammation, but evidence for its effectiveness is lacking. The extract can contain humectants that help attract water into the skin
0.95% - 1.45%
0.85% - 1.3%
0.5% - 1.15%
Plant extract that can have healing and anti-inflammatory properties. It is a potential allergen and can be irritating
0.4% - 0.95%
0.35% - 0.8%
A plant extract that has some anti-oxidant activity, but solid research is lacking. Can help attract water to the upper layer of the skin
0.3% - 0.7%
A plant extract that can help calm down inflammation in skin. Can, however, itself be irritating
0.15% - 0.7%
Can contain potent anti-oxidant compounds (abbreviated ECG, GCG, EGC, and EGCG) that might help protect the skin from free radicals. Can help calm down inflammation and has some anti-bacterial properties. Unfortunately, these antioxidants are unstable and lose their effectiveness very quickly in products. The concentration of the antioxidant compounds in the extract also tends to be low to be effective in topical formulation
0.15% - 0.65%
Helps create a thicker or gel-like product texture. It is not a surfactant but can be used in gentle cleansing formulations
0.1% - 0.45%
Used to thicken product formulations and create gel-like textures
0.1% - 0.4%
Used to adjust pH of the product and can help improve the product's smell
0.1% - 0.3%
Stabilizes the product formulation
0.05% - 0.2%
A preservative
0.05% - 0.2%
A preservative. It helps prevent bacterial growth in cosmetic products
0.05% - 0.2%
