I am a sheet mask monster. There’s something about those mess-free, packets of goodness that makes me go weak at the knees. No matter how many times I tell myself I’m not going to buy any, the second I see a sheet mask (especially if I haven’t tried it before) they usually end up in my hand at the cash register. Today I have four different masks I’m going to run through.
Sephora Lotus Eye Mask
Sephora’s own brand beauty range is really impressive and affordable. They sell many different products from overnight masks to hand crème. My favorite, however, are the eye masks. This one in particular has a very light fragrance and offers moisturizing properties. The mask itself is well saturated with serum and fits the eye contour nicely. The tissue is really soft and easy to fit to your eye shape. I left it on for 20 minutes. After taking it off, my undereye are looked dewy, hydrated and smooth. The skin under the eye is thin and delicate, keeping it hydrated ensures it stays bright and healthy. Quick, easy and mess-free, I’d certainly purchase this mask again.
Beauty 360 Hydrating Purifying Tissue Mask
Beauty 360 is CVS’s attempt at getting into the skincare market. I’ve tried another of their masks and was impressed with the results, so decided to give this one a whirl. The packaging is a little cheapy looking and the mask itself wasn’t amazing, but not bad either. The tissue is a little on the thinner side, so you have to be careful not to rip the mask. It didn’t fit my face that well, I think the mouth and eye gaps were too small. The smell was a little to detergent like and the mask would have benefited from some extra liquid. I wouldn’t run out to purchase it again, but I wouldn’t tell anyone not to buy it, either. Fun for a sleep over or testing the waters of the sheet mask world, but nothing mind blowing.
The Crème Shop Charcoal Sheet Mask
I grabbed both this and the next mask at Old Navy’s cash register for $5 each. I’d never heard of the brand before, but the packaging caught my eye immediately. I must say, I really like this mask and would definitely buy it again. The main active ingredient is charcoal, which is thought to “detoxify and purify” the skin by drawing out toxins. The mask fits well and has several folds, making it easy to apply to any face shape. This mask left my skin looking clean and refreshed. I’ve experienced a recent breakout on my jawline, and the redness was visibly reduced once I removed the mask. It had a soothing effect on my skin, thanks to the rose and jasmine extract. Definitely a great choice for anyone with sensitive, redness prone skin like mine.
The Crème Shop Hyaluronic Acid Facemask
This one is the unrivaled champion of the four. Simply wow. Hyaluronic acid is known to increase skin elasticity and firmness. It keeps the skin moisturized by preventing water loss through the skin’s surface, by creating a protective barrier. I used this mask the day after a long day of cross-continental travel, involving three flights. My skin was tired and in dire need of a pick me up. The sheet is really well saturated with serum and the sheet material felt thick and luxurious. My skin glowed after removing this mask and continued to look visibly more hydrated throughout the day. I was very happy with the dewy look it gave my skin. I intend on trying out more of this brand’s sheet masks, as I loved both of the ones I tried.
