It’ll be the first time ever in my life where I’ll be talking about sheet masks, more so, using them. I honestly did not have any idea that face masks and sheet masks are two different things. Years ago, I may have pushed away any thought in my mind to try them. Nuh uh, not my face, never in a million years, my 16-year-old self would’ve said to someone recommending her to try sheet masks, not that they were already used before (because as far as I know, they have been a trend since a year or two ago).
Why then, you may ask? Well, 16-year-old self was just a simple uptown girl who cared more about what the habits of a princess are (I swear, I always wondered what if I could be like Princess Mia of Princess Diaries. Lol.) and how to naturally pop that puberty-caused pimple (I even tried the toothpaste hack. Oh gahd.) I did not try products simply because I was told that I’m still too young and that my face could suffer lots of negative effects. I was scared, period.
But then came being a blogger. Really, it changed my life. I did not just learn how to put on makeup and how to present myself better but also, I learned to be quite adventurous with the products that I use. Be it for my skin care or everyday routine. Sheet masks are included in the things I have learned to use and I have loved it since then. In this blog post, I’ll tell you why sheet masks are beneficial. I’ll also include a review of the masks I got from BeautynStyle_Seoul. Happy reading!
Why You Should Try Sheet Masks
They are fairly cheap.
First and foremost, this is why. These products are also a whole lot cheaper if you buy them in bulk. Just imagine, you already won’t need to go to the spa to treat your face and have a pampering session. You just need a sheet mask as an alternative!
They make vitamins penetrate deep into the skin.
In using other products, you’ll have to wait for at least a week to get some visible results. In using sheet masks, however, you’ll only need at least 10-30 minutes (depending on what the instructions on your product say), and you can already see some of its effects.
They contain lots of vitamins that are good for your face.
According to Orgaid, sheet masks are face-shaped fabrics made out of either paper, fiber, or gel that contain a solution called serum. This then consists of beneficial ingredients that enhance your skin.
Speaking of good for your face, sheet masks do have lots of functions for your face.
The effects that you will get from using them depend on what product you have. Some masks are supposed to brighten, firm, moisturize, or soften your skin. Some also make your skin glow or help in making it smooth!
Sheet masks have started in Korea and are now a circulating trend around the world, even in the United States. They have truly been proven to be useful and worth it to buy and use.
Here are some masks you can try yourself, loves!
BeautynStyleSeoul Ariul Mood Maker Masks Review
When I first received this package, I totally loved the packaging! It’s very aesthetic and very, you know, Korean. It’s like their specialty – cute, bright, lovely things that you just want to pinch (if they have cheeks lol). These masks only cost Php 85 each when you buy all variants. The product description on BeautynStyleSeoul’s instagram account is this:
AriuL Mood Maker Mask
- Sexy (lifting & firming)
- Cute (brightening & moisturizing)
Chic (smoothing & nutrient-filled)
So I decided to try the “Cute” one because, at that time, I felt like my skin was very dry. I put it on my bare face for 20 minutes while I played my Spotify daily mix. The product had a silky liquid texture when I put it out of the packaging and it had no smell or anything (maybe at least for me since I had a slight cold that time). It sometimes slid off my face though because I feel like my face is too small for the sheet. (Lol.) It had a chilling effect which I loved, by the way. In the end, I had such a great time just pampering myself after a busy day and just relaxing and laying there on the bed.
After my 20 minutes was up, I removed it gently then brushed the rest of the serum in the mask on the sides of my face and my neck. I just let my face air-dry after, without using a towel. I also immediately felt how light and smooth my skin was. The redness of some parts of my face was also gone. I slept that night and tried to avoid touching my face as much as possible.
When I woke up in the morning, I felt very fresh. I looked in the mirror and saw that my face was moisturized and not dry like before. However, because I haven’t been using sheet masks usually, I noticed that the top of my nose was more oily in the days after I used the mask. This was probably because my pores were opened or maybe because the sun was just scorching hot during those days. Anyhow, I still generally liked the mask.
A big thank you to BeautynStyleSeoul for sending these in. You may follow their online instagram shop here.
That’s it for today, loves! Do you use sheet masks, too? If so, what products do you love?
