Over the past few months I have become shamelessly addicted to sheet masks. Anyone who knows me will attest to the fact that I have always been a skin care fanatic, but the sheet mask craze has swept me up beyond any other skincare obsession I’ve ever had in the past. Most recently, I got my hands on Tony Moly’s I’m Real Sheet Masks and can happily say they live up to the hype.
I am highly impressed by this collection. Easy to use, highly effective and completely mess-free, I just can’t get enough. I’ve tried countless sheet masks, from those on the cheaper end of the spectrum to higher end, more expensive products. The Tony Moly I’m Real masks are the most inexpensive sheet masks I’ve used, but are now firmly among favorites, proving lost cost does not always equal low quality. These masks are amazing value for money. For under $12 on Amazon, I snagged a whopping 11 sheet masks.
The first thing that struck me about these masks was the eye-catching, colorful packaging. The bright, beautifully designed packets are almost too pretty to throw out. Each mask is inspired by a different natural ingredient and is targeted towards a specific skin concern.
They eleven mask collection contains the following: Skin Soothing Tea Tree Mask, Skin Purifying Makgeolli Mask, Elasticity Pomegranate Mask, Clear Skin Rice Mask, Radiance Tomato Mask, Brightening Lemon Mask, Vitality Broccoli Mask, Skin Purifying Seaweed Mask, Moisturizing Aloe Mask, Nutrition Avocado Mask and Pore Care Red Wine.
My skincare routine is always geared towards moisture, moisture and more moisture, so naturally my favorite masks in this collection were the Moisturizing Aloe and Nutrition Avocado masks. Although, the Soothing Tea Tree, Pore Care Red Wine and Clear Skin Rice Masks all deserve an honorable mention for making my skin feel delightfully soft and fully rejuvenated. However, I enjoyed using every mask in the collection and didn’t experience any problems with any of them.
The masks are easy to apply to your face and have several folds, allowing you to adjust them to your individual face shape. The sheets are saturated with a generous amount of serum and feel pleasant on the skin. After application, the masks stay in place and do not slide around, which is a big plus. Although the instructions suggest 20-30 minutes, personally I leave the masks on for 30-40 minutes to allow my skin absorb as much serum as possible. After removing each mask my skin looks visibly fresh and moisturized, as if I just woke up from an enchanted sleep.
These masks are fantastic for their price, with each individual mask coming out to around $1. They are far more effective than others I’ve paid ten times the price for, making an obvious difference in the quality of my skin. I have very sensitive skin, so I was worried that these masks might irritate my skin or cause a breakout because of the low price point, but so far I have not experienced any irritation or any other negative reaction from using them. The only thing I wasn’t a huge fan of was the fragrance, which is quite strong with some of the masks.
Whether you are a skin care junkie like me or simply interested in shaking up your skincare routine, I highly recommend trying out these masks for yourself. For a little over $10 there’s really nothing to lose. You can purchase them on Amazon HERE.
