I am OBSESSED with sheet masks and regular masks and exfoliators and moisturizers. OH MY!
I went to Sephora yesterday morning to exchange my Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara (OMG that’s a post I have to write), and I decided to browse the sheet masks. I picked up seven of the nine shown, with the last one on the right one that I just used.
I have used several of the e.l.f. hydrating water sheet masks and I LOVE them. For $3, it is AMAZING and I highly recommend it, even if you do not have dry skin. The others I have not yet tried.
Yesterday afternoon I used the Dr. Jart+ Water Replenishment Sheet Mask. This mask is $7.50 at Sephora. This mask does not contain parabens, sulfates or phthalates. Here’s all the goodness it contains:
- Chamomile flower water to hydrate skin.
- Marine collagen which absorbs well, enhances moisture, improves skin texture, and provides anti-fine wrinkle effect.
- Witch hazel extract to improve corneum barrier function and prevent water evaporation, also provides a moisturizing effect.
- Cactus extract which contains 12 vitamins, provides an acne calming effect and moisturizing effect.
My thoughts: The sheet mask was large, too large, especially above the lip, and the nose and chin area. The mask was saturated pretty well in the serum, but I had a difficult time keeping it on my face, and I had to constantly smooth it out onto my skin. The directions are to keep the mask on for 15-20 minutes, which I did, and then massage the remaining serum into the skin. My skin LOVED the serum and my face looks incredibly refreshed and hydrated. I’ll probably buy this mask again just because my skin reacted well to the serum. It is a bit pricey, but my skin did soak up the magic, and it didn’t make my face itch or break out in a rash, so it’s money well spent.
**** <—— I’m giving it 4 out of 5 asterisks just because the sheet mask was so large and clunky on my average sized face.
I’d prefer to just buy a tube or a jar of the serum and massage it into my skin, but I don’t think that’s an option. Ahem, Dr. Jart+ (and you others), GET ON THAT. 🙂
I am curious to try the other masks but limit myself to one mask biweekly, unless my skin is a disaster and needs the help. I also have tubes of masks and exfoliators that I love. I’ll have to share those another time. Sheet masks seem to be the rage right now.
Do you have a favorite sheet mask? What is your skin type and skin care routine?
