I’ll be honest, I really don’t know how I managed without Korean sheet masks before. They are, quite simply, the MOST WONDERFUL THINGS EVER! Sorry for the capital letters but I feel so strongly about them, it was necessary to be dramatic.
What’s so good about them, I hear you ask? Sheet masks offer an intense boost to your skin with minimal effort (putting one on your face to up to 30 minutes while you relax sounds like such a chore, doesn’t it?). They’re portable, so you can travel with them and they’re inexpensive too!
This isn’t the first time I’ve written about them. My first Korean sheet mask haul can be read here.
I’m thrilled to share my latest sheet mask haul with you. I care a lot about skin care ingredients and I’m pleased to say these masks are all paraben free.
It’s Real Squeeze Mask Rice, Innisfree at Mask House, £1.39
This mask is one of my favourites. Rice extract can help brighten dark spots, so this is ideal to use if you want to tackle marks left by acne. Even if you don’t suffer from blemishes, this is still lovely to use if you’d like your skin to feel healthy. Other ingredients include aloe leaf juice and vitamins C and E to nourish parched skin.
Damask Rose Mask, Etude House at Mask House, £1.39
If a product has rose in it, you KNOW I’m going to buy it. This mask has a lovely subtle rose scent and it’s an absolute pleasure to use. It’s great when my skin is dehydrated because it’s moisturising without being too heavy. Using this is like having a mini facial!
Avocado I’m Real Mask Sheet, Tony Moly at Mask House, £1.69
I love eating avocados and it seemed only natural for me to buy an avocado sheet mask. Avocados contain healthy fats and they provide our bodies with lots of benefits when we eat them. It makes perfect sense to incorporate this goodness into a sheet mask.
The triple layer sheet holds a milky essence which contains avocado extracts to revitalise my skin. Once I remove the mask my skin is noticeably softer and dewier (oh, be still my beating beauty junkie heart!). It’s perfect for very dry skin so I’ll definitely be stocking up in the winter months.
It’s Real Squeeze Mask Blackberry, Innisfree at Mask House, £1.39
Made with refreshing blackberry juice (packed with vitamins and antioxidants), this sheet mask also contains skin-soothing green tea and tangerine to improve my skin’s firmness and elasticity. I love it!
I Need You, Olive Mask, Etude House at Mask House, £1.39
Since discovering the benefits of using olive oil on my skin I’ve become obsessed with the ingredient. If my skin feels dry, irritated or rough, I turn to this sheet mask.
It’s made with olive oil extract, which immediately boosts my skin and moisturises it. Any tightness across my face disappears along with any redness. I really can’t praise this mask enough.
It’s Real Squeeze Mask Acai Berry, Innisfree at Mask House, £1.39
I love this sheet mask. Acai berry is a wonderful ingredient to use if you want brighter, less congested skin. It also contains soothing aloe as well as redness-reducing green tea, tangerine, cactus, camellia leaves and orchids for clearer skin.
Acai berry is known in the beauty world to provide a younger-looking appearance so I shall definitely be buying these again!
Hyaluronic Acid Mask, Etude House at Mask House, £1.39
This mask is lovely. Formulated with hyaluronic acid (also known as sodium hyaluronate), which is known for its outstanding water storage properties, this quickly gives my skin a much-needed moisture boost.
Whenever I use this mask, it’s completely dry when I take it off, which shows how hard the mask has had to work to moisturize my dehydrated skin!
How about you? Which sheet masks do you love using?
