Sheet masking is a fun way to care for and nourish your skin. With the vast array of sheet masks available, I chose a whole bunch from Glow Theory. Here are my thoughts…
ILLI Lotus Moisture Mask
This mask doesn’t smell particularly pretty or appealing, but I’m okay with that. I think because it’s exotic (there’s no english on the back of the mask’s packaging), I expect these sheet masks to enchant me. Anyway this Lotus mask says it will moisturise your face – and it did. Some sheet masks create pimples if I leave them on, but not this one. It moisturised my skin and left it glowing. It wasn’t as wet as the Coconut Milk Sheet Mask (above), but I used the serum for the next night, and it did a good job of moisturising my skin. There’s nothing else I can say about this mask, other than the fact that it did what it said it would. It didn’t blow my mind, and I won’t repurchase. Available for R40 from Glow Theory here.
Tony Moly Real Nature Mask Sheet – Royal Jelly
Tony Moly Pureness 100 Hyaluronic Acid – Hydrating
Tony Moly Pureness 100 Collagen Mask Sheet – Elasticity
Tony Moly Pureness 100 Snail Mask Sheet – Skin Irritation Care
This is my favourite sheet mask of the lot. It smells lovely, and feels soothing and comforting. I left it on for 30 minutes and I was left with smooth, shiny and oh so comfortable, hydrated skin. I was able to use the remaining serum for another 2 nights. A definite winner for the affordability – R35 from Glow Theory here.
Of all the sheet masks tested, this is my second favourite one. It claims to nourish skin and reduce wrinkles. I was expecting it to smell heavenly, but it turns out that it’s fragrance free. I left it on for 30 minutes and I was left with perfectly hydrated and soft skin. There was enough serum in the packet to apply to my décolleté and for use another separate time. As for reducing wrinkles, I can’t say, but it was fun to use and hydrating on my skin.
Sheet masks are a fun way to amp up your skincare and address various concerns and I really enjoyed trying out these interesting K-beauty ones. Have you tried and loved any?
