Korean beauty products are the hottest thing in skincare right now. One of the best ideas they’ve brought to the market is the sheet mask, a fabric face mask loaded with skin nourishing product. A few weeks ago, I swung by my local Sephora to pick up a couple of masks to try. Here are the results.
The Dr. Jart Clearing Solution Mask runs $9 for a single treatment. I was in the throes of an especially bad breakout, so this mask was the first one I tried.
Opening it was a bit messy. The mask is attached to a piece of plastic and getting it out of the packaging without folding it is a chore. It took a few moments to sort out removal of the mask and affix it correctly to my face.
The mask was easy to keep on, so I cleaned my bathroom while it did its thing. It smelled somewhat heavily of tea tree oil, but it’s a pleasant enough smell.
Once the mask is removed, there is a lot of liquid left on the skin. The package directs you to gently massage the rest of the product into your skin and give it a few minutes to absorb. Then, you proceed with the rest of your products.
The product works really well. It’s not a miracle cure, but I think it soothed the breakout enough that things started to turn around. At $9 a treatment, it’s too expensive for every day use, but it’s perfect for once-a-week or emergency situations.
Dr. Jart also makes a wrinkle treatment mask. I’ve been cutting the wrinkle mask into pieces and using it on my forehead to treat my one wrinkle problem area. I put the rest of it in a plastic baggie and keep it in the fridge between uses.
I’m fairly happy with both masks. They work as advertised and provide noticeable results. Have you tried any sheet masks that you like?
No sheet masks but I have been using the Skinfood black sugar mask 1-2 times a week for gentle exfoliation. It is soooo good. Has kept breakouts at bay and my skin feels so smooth when I apply moisturizers and makeup afterward. I’d love recommendations of other Korean skin care products for daily cleansing, removing blackheads and evening out my complexion.
I really like the Epielle sheet masks. It’s a budget Korean brand, I think, and I only ever see them at Big Lots for 80¢ a pop. They are actually much better than you’d expect, especially for the price.
My favorite is the My Beauty Diary Black Pearl sheet mask: https://www.amazon.com/My-Beauty-Diary-Black-Version/dp/B00DQH0GT4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1438714544&sr=8-1&keywords=black+pearl+sheet+mask
I’ve tried the Dr. Jart hydrating mask, it’s pretty good. A bit bigger than the Korean ones and has a lot of serum in it.
