I used to be obsessed with sheet masks and would apply them almost everyday, but I’ve been way too lazy lately lol! Anyways, these are my go-to sheet masks — Dermal’s Collagen Essence Mask. They’re simple, affordable and effective. I get them from my local Asian supermarket for $1.99 which is an absolute steal! There are so many different kinds, that targets many different concerns. But one thing they all have in common is that they are moisturizing. I believe all skin types can benefit from these masks depending on people’s individual concerns, whether you’re looking for something that’s firming, brightening, soothing, refunding or whatever else. There are literally so many to choose from! My favourite one is the aloe, which is both moisturizing and soothing. It’s super perfect for my dry, sensitive skin. I especially like using it after picking at my face, when I have a ton of inflamed spots lol! It has a typical sheet mask texture (I think this one is made with plastic fiber) and plenty of essence, that’s lightweight and non-sticky! One use is usually enough to calm down my skin, and the effects are immediate. I like how the eye area is not completely cut out and you can actually cover your eye lids with it, which is very relaxing! I also like to use a facial roller with this mask, to ensure that the essence is able to penetrate deeper and gets fully absorbed. I use the left over essence on other parts of my body like my elbows and knees to moisturize them because they’re the driest part of my body. I’ve tried most of the different masks and I’ve never ever had any problem with the scent because there is none lol! I’ve been using these masks for years and I always repurchase them. You seriously can’t beat the price! Definitely worth trying out and I highly, highly recommend it. **(would rate it 5/5 if the product was available to be tagged)**

A mask that makes your dull skin glow while you sleep. 😴💖✨ That’s the promise of Aromatica LIVELY Vita Glow Sleeping Mask. Isn't the packaging eye catching? This range from Aromatica is new and I spotted them at iHerb. Of course I had to get my hands on it. 🙌🏼😅 I love Aromatica and it’s one of the earliest clean K-beauty brand I came upon. Some of you know I’ve been raving about them especially their Rose Absolute First Serum. 💕 So this is is a sleeping mask that is supposed to provide vitamin and vitality for dull skin with the help of 7 different multi-vitamins and vitamin complex of mango, guava, and sea buckthorn. I’ve only used it once so can’t quite tell. 🤔 This mask is quite runny. It feels more like a water cream. So it’s pretty lightweight. I tried it a few nights ago but because I’ve been rushing a little in the mornings, I didn’t stop to check how my skin look before washing. I will use it a few more times to give it a more accurate assessment. 📝 But I like that Aromatica only formulated this product with EWG rated green ingredients. ☘️ This means it’s safe for most skin type.🥰 I got it at a special price of S$26+ at iHerb. I think the original price for the 100g tub is S$36+.
I am on a roll with these multi-step masks lately! skinesque masks hydrating and brightening mask The creamy foaming cleanser is really nice. I tested the pH straight out of the packet and it registered at about 6.5 to 7, which isn't quite as low as I prefer, but isn't horrible either (my water is an 8 so...). It didn't dry out my skin and it IS luxuriously creamy, so for occasional use, I think it's fine unless you have a severely compromised moisture barrier. The hydrating essence is LOVELY. I would love to buy a bottle of this stuff. It's a light watery gel essence that sinks in quickly and feels so refreshing and hydrating. It contains hyaluronic acid, adenosine, and niacinamide. Seriously, skinesque can you please put this in a bottle? Finally the masks. I liked the black brightening mask a lot. It's a natural fiber charcoal mask with a pretty good fit and my skin did look brightened and more even-toned after I used it. The hydrating mask uses a thin microfiber sheet and I don't know why, but it just wasn't as comfortable; I felt like it wasn't quite as breatheable. Both masks had pretty small eye holes so there wasn't a whole lot of leeway for fit, but on the plus side there was pretty good surface coverage. Both masks were very moisturizing - the aqua mask more so, and I actually preferred the more watery feel of the brightening mask.
This is a hydrating, firming mask that combines African adaptogenic plants (South African Aloe Ferox, Resurrection plant and Honey Bush) along with different molecular weights of hyaluronic acids, water-binding red seaweed, fermented yeast and other marine actives Microalga Glucans & Chlorella. It also contains stabilized vitamin C and Niacinamide that brighten the skin. The mask contains a complex made from an algae (Kappaphycus alvarezii) and a shrub called Caeselpinia Spinosa, that creates a mesh like non-occlusive 'second skin' layer, that optimizes moisture retention and reinforces the skin's natural barrier. ⠀ You can use mask in three ways: as wash-off mask, as overnight mask and as a regular skincare product (serum or moisturizer). To be honest, I haven’t used it as regular mask, I don’t want to waste product and wash it off in 15-20 minutes:) both other ways she works great to hydrate, plump, smooth and prevent water loss. But personally I prefer to use it overnight over my favorite serums (hydrating and peptide). It pills a bit when layering overnight and that is to be expected. This is because of the alga-thorny shrub complex that it contains. As Lavanya recommends, I mix it with few drops of my favorite oil and don’t massage into skin but just leave it to absorb. This tip helps to minimize pilling.
Meg Cosmetics Two Step Jelly Masks
I love the concept of these masks. Each mask comes with an AHA swab that exfoliates your skin before applying the actual mask. Each mask has its own special combination of ingredients to target specific skin concerns. From top to bottom: 🌹Brightening and Nutrition- infused with pomegranate extract 🥕Firming and Radiance- infused with carrot extract 🌱Calming and Pore Care- infused with tea tree leaf water 💜Moisturizing and Vitalizing- infused with lavender Overall, I like this mask series and love the concept of the AHA swab. I feel that it really does prep the face and allows the skin to soak up all the benefits of the mask. I would recommend this variety set to someone who is just starting skincare.
Aromatica LIVELY Vita Glow Sleeping Mask I told you how this is is a sleeping mask that is supposed to provide vitamin and vitality for dull skin with the help of 7 different multi-vitamins and vitamin complex of mango, guava, and sea buckthorn. 😻 Well, today I'm here to tell you that THIS MASK DELIVERS! 🤩 Yeah, my skin really looked brighter the morning after using this mask. 😍 This mask has a runny texture and it feels like a water cream. So it’s pretty lightweight. Someone even mentioned how she uses it as a day moisturizer.
CLEAN May Lindstrom The Clean Dirt
May Lindstrom is another cult favorite luxury product. Her Clean Dirt mask is a brightening exfoliating treatment that goes from powder to a fluffy mask texture with the addition of water. The combination of 3 clays help extract impurities from the skin while the Vitamin C helps brighten it. Using this mask reveals a layer of smooth, rejuvenated skin. I love this mask but it is an undertaking to make it and apply it. You need to carefully mix the powder, with as little water as possible, to create the perfect texture. It does leave the skin very clean and bright, which I love. It’s great for before big events and photo moments. The price point is also decent for a long lasting mask, at $70.
