So I've been really into sheet masks recently since my skin was craving some extra hydration and my eye area was looking a little dark and dull. I ordered a bunch of Tony Moly masks on Amazon (10 masks for $11), and got a few masks from my local Sephora as well ($6 for face masks, $4 for eye masks). On to my thoughts...
SEPHORA EYE MASKS
I tried two Sephora eye masks (one in the Pearl and one in the Rose). I had one really big issue with both of the eye masks I bought which was quite disappointing to me. I couldn't figure out which way to place the mask on my eye!!! The way the backs were placed on the mask for removal were either a mistake or both of my packets contained two lefts (rights?). Has anyone else had this issue? So basically when I was wearing the eye masks, I didn't know if I had the essence side to my skin or not. Sad times.
On the positive side, the masks were really wet so I could be sure the product absorbed into my skin. I think Sephora recommends that you wear the mask for 15 minutes. I actually wore it for 30-40 minutes since I wanted to see some really noticeable results and soak all the product in.
The PEARL eye mask is supposed to brighten your eyes. I felt like my eyes were a bit brighter and more hydrated after wearing the mask and I didn't really feel the need to wear my dark circle eye cream for a week afterwards so I would consider this mask to be a success.
The ROSE eye mask claims to be a moisturizing and brightening mask. It smelled a lot like roses and I found the scent pleasant (similar to Rose Jam by Lush). I also felt like it kept my eyes hydrated and brighter so that I didn't have to wear my dark circle eye cream.
SEPHORA FACE MASKS
I tried two Sephora face masks: Orchid and Rose. The Orchid mask smells like orchids/floral and thre Rose mask smells like roses. The Orchid mask in particular claims to reduce wrinkles and bring moisture to skin. Both made my skin very hydrated and nice smelling. Since starting to use more sheet masks (I use one a week now), my skin has been very hydrated and smooth. When I touch my face, it's as soft as a baby's bottom! I can't say that the Orchid mask got rid of my wrinkles (I don't have to many), but I can say that I don't notice the ones I have as much possible since the extra moisture plumps up my skin cells a bit more than usual.
TONY MOLY RICE MASK
I used this one for 30 minutes on my face. Afterwards, it was still really wet. I know some girls save the mask and reuse it the next day so that is quite possible with this one. I didn't really notice anything miraculous happening, but it did keep my skin hydrated so I would consider it a success.
Overall, I think sheet masks are great if you want a little extra hydration in your skin care regime. I think the real test for many of these will be in the winter so you can really see how the hydration shows up.
Have you tried any of these masks or any sheet masks? What are your favorites?
