Face Mask Friday: Sheet Masks


I must admit I have always loved a face mask, pampering is one of my favourite hobbies, and with their being SO many different sheet face masks out there, I thought I would compile some of my current favourites.
When I was in Orlando last month I picked up some sheet masks from various shops, including a handful from the Pink section of Victoria’s Secret as they had such cute packaging. This one is the Pink Seas the Day Rejuvenating Sheet Mask (£4.87 or 5 for £9.85) and Victoria’s Secret/Pink do ship to the UK now without the need for customs charges. The Seas the Day mask has major mermaid vibes and is a skin-nourishing mask which hugs and contours like a second skin to give instant complexion perfection and rejuvenate the skin.
Going back to the high street now, we have the Garnier Skin Active Charcoal and Algae Sheet Mask (£2.99), which I chose because the word on the street is that charcoal is super great for the skin. This mask has been formulated with Algae Extract, Hyaluronic Acid and Hydrating Active to comfort and purify the skin and tighten the pores. This is a tissue version of the sheet mask and instantly leaves the skin more hydrated and feeling purified.
Slightly pricier at £7.49 is the Nip + Fab Dragon’s Blood Hydration Mask, however I did get this on offer for around £4 so I didn’t feel too bad and I have heard great things about Nip + Fab’s Dragon’s Blood range, however bizarre it sounds! This mask is highly concentrated in plumping hyaluronic acid and soothing dragon’s blood extract to soak the skin in moisture to give you a radiant, more youthful looking skin. This is to be left on the face for 15 minutes and instantly feels super refreshing, so this is going to be great when the warmer weather rolls round.
I have been using Sephora sheet masks for ages now, and when in Orlando I picked quite a few up, but my favourite has always been the Pearl Sheet Face Mask ($6, and again Sephora do ship to the UK). The Pearl mask has been created to perfect and brighten the skin with natural-origin pearl to create high luminosity, so if you suffer from dull, lacklustre skin, then this is the one for you! They also offer the Pearl version in a creamy sleeping mask for $4.
For a special pampering treat I recommend the Masque Bar Silver Foil and Gold Foil Sheet Masks* (£4.99 each), and there is also a Rose Gold Foil version too! The Gold Foil Mask is enriched with Camelia Flower Extract and Lavender Flower Water to give the skin a big old dose of hydration, whilst also soothing and calming the skin, which is perfect for a more sensitive, irritated skin. The Silver Foil Mask has been created to visibly hydrate and soothe the skin and contains Aloe Leaf Juice and Anise Fruit Extract to give a youthful, glowing complexion.
My final sheet mask is another one from Orlando, although unfortunately you cannot get these here in the UK. It is the Bath & Body Works Sea You Soon Face Sheet Mask ($4.95) and again I picked up a few various ones but I quite enjoy the sea vibe. The Sea You Soon sheet mask contains sea minerals and hyaluronic acid to infuse the skin with supercharged ingredients and smells so super fresh it will definitely wake you up in a morning!
All the Loves,
