Hi guys! So, we recently spoke about our current favourite mask ‘SuperMud GlamGlow Clearing mask’ – if you want to find out why we love this mask so much head over to our blog post – SuperMud GlamGlow Clearing Treatment Mask.
Today I want to talk to you about sheet masks. I was never really a fan of sheet masks because I always preferred masks that were deep cleansing and would remove all the impurities. I didn’t really understand the benefits of using a sheet mask. However, Simran found these masks on Amazon – Dermal Korean Collagen Essence masks – we were getting a pack of 16 for £13. Which was super cheap for the amount we were getting. I converted very quickly, I began using these once a week and I haven’t stopped since!
Let me tell you why… these masks contain vitamin E and Collagen, which help to keep your skin looking and feeling healthy. Collagen helps to promote glowing, hydrated and youthful looking skin, whilst Vitamin E helps to protect skin from any damage caused by free radicals. These sheets are soaked, and I mean really soaked with ingredients and various minerals in order to ensure effective absorption.
When I first started using these, I noticed the effects immediately, my skin would be glowing the next day and it just felt so hydrated.
How to use: We usually apply this mask at night time. So wash your face as normal and pat dry but do not moisturise. Apply the mask directly onto the skin and let it sit for 15-20 minutes. Once you have removed the mask (this is completely optional), but we like to squeeze any excess ‘juice’ from the mask and rub that into our skin and all over our necks. We would just let that dry and then go to sleep. We noticed most benefits when we did this.
Now alongside these masks I have tried a few others e.g. I have tried a few from Sephora and I was also gifted a mask from GlamGlow – bubble sheet.
The Sephora ones are very similar to the Korean masks, they provided the same benefits. But I recently tried my Glamglow bubble sheet after having it sit on my desk for 4 months. The mask was so cool! When you apply it, bubbles start to foam all over, it’s a strange feeling but a good one haha. Upon removal you have all this white foam left on your face, you have to massage it in your skin and then rinse it off. I noticed that the mask was deep cleansing because it removed so many of my blackheads, I was shocked. This mask is a little pricier, so I wouldn’t be jumping to buy another one any time soon as I am very content with the sheet masks I am using.
But I thought I’d just share some of the masks I have used as sheet masks are great. I love how convenient they are, you can take them anywhere especially when travelling. Just pop one of these on and relax. I’m really annoyed at myself for not doing this because after a flight my skin would look so dry and dead, but now I know for the future I will definitely be applying one of these masks.
I hope you enjoyed reading! See you in the next post!
