Sheet masks have been around in my beauty regime for the past decade or more. This was first popularized in Asia and then brought over to North America. I absolutely love sheet masks. They make me relaxed and almost a “spa” like feel right in the comfort of my home. There are so many kinds of sheet masks but I want to share with you the highs and lows of sheet masks since the price varies by a lot.
Giving you my recommendations and tips for sheet masks.
Why the price difference
Tony Moly’s Intense Care Snail mask is one of my all time favourites. The price is moderate at around $4-5 each in North America. On the other hand I’ve got SK2’s Facial Treatment Mask priced at around $15 per sheet. There is a significant difference but these two are my top recommendations for highs and lows.
Snail Mask Hype
If you are new to sheet masks, snail masks are the bomb. They are perfect for someone who is past their mid 20s and is looking for brighter, tighter and and rehydrated skin. There is snail mucin essence inside the sheet masks which is the activating ingredient for improved facial condition. It’s worth it!
Frequency and when to use it
Sk2 masks are only for special occasions when I want that glowy, smooth and lifted complexion. I mean if I can afford them, I would use them every single week so this is when my Toly Moly Sheet Masks come to the rescue. I usually use a sheet mask once a week and if I can other other day but typically once a week can give you some benefits (in combination with your serum).
Keep the packaging
In many many occasions your sheet mask packaging will contain a ton of leftover essence. Don’t waste it! I always apply the remaining essence on my neck because why the heck not!
After you remove your mask the key is to not wash your face. Instead, apply a serum or a light moisturizer to wrap up your routine!
