I’m a huge fan of sheet masks, not only are they easy to use, you waste less product than traditional masks. Since these are a onetime use only product, you never have to worry about the bottle drying up before you finish it. For those unfamiliar with sheet masks, it’s basically a cotton sheet that’s pre-cut into the shape of your face and saturated in beneficial skin serum. Each mask is cut to fit the contours of your face with holes for the eyes, lips and nose, so you’re able to see and breathe. Don’t worry if they don’t fit your face perfectly, the idea it just to get it on, then sit back and relax. Sheet masks are often more hydrating and moisturizing than traditional gel or clay masks and instantly help to repair damaged skin cells. It’s also extremely effective in delivering nutrients deep into the skin thanks to its close dermal contact. Its unique ingredients are evenly distributed onto the sheet mask to ensure that every part of the skin receives an equal application of serum. The sheet mask allows your skin to breath freely during application process, which allows the skin to absorb the serum faster and more efficiently than traditional masks and creams.

Truthfully, after testing each one of these masks, I really couldn’t tell the difference between each one. I think you would have to use each one over the course of a few months to really see if each one targets a different skin concern. I can, however, tell you these are the most hydrating sheet masks I’ve ever tried. I’ve applied these right before bed, rubbed in the leftover serum and I didn’t feel the need to apply my nightly moisturizer. For those who have been reading my blog, know I have extremely dry skin, and the thought of going to bed without my night cream, scares the heck out of me. Even without my nightly serum or cream, my skin is refreshed, plump and hydrated in the morning. My skin instantly seemed ten times brighter after each mask and with a healthy radiant glow that lasts for a few solid days. Because my skin is more hydrated, the fine lines around my eyes and frown lines don’t seem as prominent. All and all, an excellent sheet mask that I will continue to purchase. Also in the collection is Skin Republic Spots & Blemish Face Mask and Platinum Life Face Mask. Each retail for $8 at Sephora.
