Sheet Mask Tried & Tested


Sheet masks have imploded in the last year or so, and it is crazy how many brands have come out with one. There are sheet masks for everything now: face, lips, neck & d├ęcolletage, hands and feet, you name it and it exists. One brand has even brought out a tanning sheet!! The craze which originated from Korea provides an easy way to hydrate the deeper layers of your skin and to truly allow the moisture to sink in.

After having a beauty clear out in April, I found that I had quite a few sheet masks in my cupboard that had slipped through the cracks, which goes to show I definitely own way to many beauty products *hides face in hands*. Since my amazing discovery, I have been using up my sheet masks and perking up my skin based on its need (spottiness, dehydration, dullness, etc...).  So here are four sheet masks that I recently tried out and if they are worth giving a go:

Starskin Anti-ageing Liftaway Mud Face Sheet Mask (£8.50, Beautybay.com)
Starskin were one of the first sheet mask brands that I knew about and you will have definitely come across them in a magazine or two. There's a reason why everyone raves about them, if your skin is in need of a relaxing break and need a nourishing mask then this is the one for you. Trust me I know what you are thinking, a mud sheet mask how does that even work? I thought the exact same thing and even got quite confused as to how to put the sheet mask on. The Starskin Liftaway Mud Sheet Mask comes in two parts: a mask for the top and bottom of your face, simply apply to dry skin and presto you are on your way to brighter & lifted skin. Leave the mask on for twenty minutes until you feel your skin tightening and wash off any leftover residue with warm water. And oh my, did my skin feel baby smooth afterwards! This sheet mask is incredible, it left my skin feeling brighter, tighter and clearer. I will definitely be buying more of their sheet masks in the future!

Oh K! Coconut Water Fibre Face Mask (£8 for 3 masks, Beautybay.com)
The Oh K! Coconut Water Fibre Face Mask is perfect for rehydrating skin, leaving it looking refreshed and radiant. My skin felt deeply nourished and tighter afterwards, great for bringing dull skin back to life! This is the best smelling out of the four sheet masks and my skin was left with a coconut scent long after I took the mask off, I was very impressed with the Sheet Mask. I also thought it was really good value for money considering that you get 3 masks for £8, making it roughly £2.70 a mask and considering how good your skin feels after it is well worth the price.

Tony Moly I'm Real Tea Tree Sheet Mask (£5, Selfridges)
If you don't recognise the name Tony Moly, you may have seen their cute products in TK Maxx or in some recent round-ups in the beauty section of your favourite magazines. The Korean brand has quickly become a favourite of mine and their products are simply amazing, I'm surprised it has taken me this long to get around to trying one of their Sheet Masks but alas it had fallen into the depths of my cupboard. They have so many different masks with interesting ingredients such as broccoli, tomato, seaweed, red wine, rice, avocado, pomegranate, aloe vera and lemon. I bought the Tea Tree Sheet Mask for when my skin is going through a stressed out moment or when I would be feeling a little bit spotty, and boy did this come in handy... My skin had a breakout episode a couple of weeks ago and broke out this little gem to reduce the inflammation of the spots. Having felt a bit rubbish about my skin before, my face felt so refreshed afterwards and my spots looked way less angry. The Tea Tree Sheet Mask helped calm down my breakout and left my face feeling + looking a whole lot better.

BeautyPro Brightening Collagen Mask with Vitamin C (£4.95, Beautypro.com)
When you live in the UK and the weather changes quicker than you can say supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, you can never have too much Vitamin C in your food or skincare. The BeautyPro Collagen Mask helps to improve skin tone and overall complexion fighting fine lines, wrinkles, sun-damage and dull skin. It also helps to rebalance uneven skin tone and reduce pigmentation. I am also a strong believer that is never too early to start using products with collagen in them and to start thinking ahead to treating ageing skin! Collagen tightens skin and considering I have enlarged pores this helps to make them look smaller + smoother.

What sheet masks have you been using recently? x
