Asian Sheet Mask Review

I recently had a chance to try out the latest rage in skincare
from Asia and I am really excited to share my experience with you.
I tried out Asian sheet masks and I am in LOVE. 


looks kinda funny o.O 

Let me beging by explaining what a sheet mask is...
A sheet mask is a pulp sheet infused with a serum that
contains a blend of ingredients beneficial to the skin.
Some of the ingredients include: Vitamin E, Collagen, 
Caviar, Tea Tree Oil, and other great things!
The various types of masks are used for different skin care issues,
for example the Raspberry Collagen Mask provides intense moisture
and the Tea Tree Healing Mask provides relief for oil prone skin.
A sheet mask is to be used once. Normally, you use a sheet
mask twice a week during the night. 
All of the sheet masks I will be reviewing are made in Korea. 

The directions of application for all of the masks are:
Thoroughly cleanse and dry face.
Unfold the mask and apply to face, avoiding eye contact.
Wait 15-20 minutes and then peel off,
Let the skin absorb the remaining essence by gently patting the skin. 
Apply moisturizer. 

This was the first mask I tried, naturally because it has chocolate in it ;) 
I also wanted to try it because one of the benefits is that it brightens the skin.
I let it sit on my skin for about 20 minutes, and I must say it is relaxing!
After taking it off I waited 5 minutes for the serum to sink in and applied 
my moisturizer... I noticed a difference in the hydration of my skin 
but not so much in the brightness. My skin seemed a bit less dull then 
usual, but the mask didn't blow me out of the water. 

You may have noticed that Collagen is a prominent ingredient
in face masks, this is because collagen is known to improve
elasticity and brighten aging skin. The Aloe Collagen
mask is definitely my favorite! I struggle from Combination to Dry skin
and having dry patches is horrible! Especially when I want to apply foundation. 
This mask provided my skin with the hydration it needed and more! It
made my skin feel smooth, soft and tender to the touch. I will definitely
be repurchasing more of these!!!

You can purchase these masks through 
They sell many Asian beauty products as well
as other things :)

Aloe Collagen Mask retail for

  4. LOL! I was NOT prepared for that picture of your face. I've tried this before with mixed results but I think I'd rather make my own mask out of homemade ingredients. Plus, cucumbers on the eyes never goes wrong :)
