It’s become a routine. Every Sunday night, I relax with a facial mask. I don’t get much sleep over the weekends, so a mask is the perfect way to unwind and give my skin some extra TLC.
Lately, I’ve been really into sheet masks.They’re so easy to apply! Etude House, The Face Shop, Skin Food, Leaders Clinic, Qiora, are just a few Korean/Asian brands that manufactures sheet masks. There are tons of brands and masks you can choose from. Just depends on what you’re looking for. Collagen? Hydration? Whitening? Lifting? Calming? Whatever your skin needs, there’s a mask for it. Here’s my current stash…
I typically purchase my masks at local Korean beauty stores, but you can also purchase them online at stores like PrettyandCute.com (they offer a TON of asian makeup and skincare options).
To apply a sheet mask, all you need to do is open the package, unfold the sheet, and lay on your face! 10-20 minutes later, you simply toss the sheet mask away and you’re ready for your night time skin regimen. There’s always too much product in the packet, so I rub the excess on my neck, hands and/or arms.
Tonight, I opted for a Vitamin C mask ($2.99) which should help brighten my tired/dull skin.
My favorite mask:
Masks by Leaders Clinic (about $5 each) are a favorite because these masks are super thick and adhere to the skin SO~ well. Notice (below) how the mask is like a second skin on my face? Amazing! It almost seems like the sheet has tiny quilted pillows that holds the product and sticks to your skin! I tried the collagen mask, but they make masks to address different skin care needs too. (in case your interested.. my favorite non-sheet mask of all time is Bliss’ Rubberizing Mask, but that mask requires some additional steps)
At a higher price point… Qiora Spa Masks ($38 for a pack of 4 masks) are awesome! Each packet comes with 2 pieces, a top and bottom, which is designed to better fit your face. The gel (blue) side goes on your face, and the other side is covered in cotton making the application easy and clean. Your hands don’t get wet! I have sensitive skin, but I love that I can leave this on almost an hour and not have my skin get irritated at all! Super hydrating, soothing and smoothing.
Hope you had a great weekend!~ Until next time, stay pretty… inside and out.
