I recently saw an episode of The Today Show as they were discussing the latest and greatest beauty products on the market. What caught my eye were the facial sheet masks that promised to do everything from fight wrinkles to even out skin tone. Two masks that I have heard great things about are Dr. Jart and Masque Bar by Look Beauty. I have never tried sheet masks before, I usually apply my absolute favorite Tea Tree Oil Face Mask by The Body Shop once a week. But I was intrigued to see what all the fuss was about regarding these masks. And please excuse how I look in the masks, my kids were terrified, but it’s all in the name of beauty.
The Dr. Jart line of masks treat a very wide range of skin issues. The sheet masks include different solutions: Brightening, Wrinkles, Hydration, Clearing, Firming, Laugh Line Lift, Neck & Chin Lift, Cheek & Eye Lift and more. I tried the Dr. Jart Brightening Mask, $9, because I have noticed that my skin has been dull lately, maybe due to the changing of seasons. This mask is an ultra-fine microfiber sheet mask that instantly brightens dull and uneven skin tone so I knew this was the right one for me.
This silky, hydrating microfiber sheet mask—made of soft microfiber finer than a strand of hair—luxuriously delivers essential ingredients for the ultimate brightening benefits. Featuring a super silky texture, the thin material of the mask gently clings to skin for even and consistent absorption of active ingredients. Glutathione, a potent antioxidant, visibly evens out skin tone and helps brighten and improve the appearance of dark spots and discoloration. A dynamic duo of proven skin-brightening ingredients, niacinamide and α-bisabolol, create youthful-looking radiance.
-Cleanse and apply toner
-Peel off, discard the film liner, and apply the mask adjusting around eyes and mouth
-Leave on for 10 to 20 minutes
-Remove the mask and gently pat remaining serum until fully absorbed
I followed the instructions and decided to leave the mask on for the maximum 20 minutes to achieve the best results. Applying the mask was very easy and I went about my daily nightly routines even forgetting that I had it on, it was so comfortable. I have to say that after I removed it, my skin felt incredibly soft. I honestly couldn’t stop touching my face! There was excess of solution on my face after removal so I patted it into my skin as instructed, and finally rinsed with warm water. I am a huge fan of this mask and will definitely give the other masks in this line a try!
Another mask that I have heard great things about is the Masque Bar by Look Beauty, $10/pack of 3 masks. Taking care of my two young boys is a handful so I wanted to try the Cucumber Mask to moisturize and restore my skin tone. This sheet type essence mask is a skin moisturizing treatment blended with Cucumber Extract, Collagen and Vitamin E to help moisturize the skin and restore skin tone after UV exposure. Like the Dr. Jart mask, it was very easy to apply.
-Thoroughly cleanse and dry your face
-Open the packet, take out and unfold the mask
-Apply the mask on the face. Smooth the mask gently to ensure good contact with the skin
-Wear the mask for 20-30 minutes
-To remove mask, peel off slowly from the edges
I found that this mask was thinner than Dr. Jart so I took extra care in handling it! Again, I left it on for the maximum amount of time, 30 minutes, and removed it slowly. I loved this mask as well, and saw that my face did in fact look more hydrated and fresh.
After trying these sheet masks, I am now a fan. While I will continue to use my clay masks, sheet mask are a great alternative to getting the best skin possible!
