A fabulous invention: Sheet Masks

One thing I really love in my skincare routine are Sheet Masks. I don't think I've seen those in Western brands but Kanebo International has After-Sun sheet masks for sale here if I am not wrong.

Sheet Masks are pieces of soft and sturdy paper pre-soaked in skin care essence or gel packaged in individual sachets. You just put the thing on your face (it has holes for your eyes and nose) and leave it on for 10-20 minutes. It's a truly relaxing experience since it feels cool on your skin and in the same time it's great for your skin.

I've seen most Sheet Masks run for around US$2-3 each on ebay and probably less if you're lucky enough to shop in a Korean or Japanese drugstore.

I have tried several masks and my current favorites are the CL Raspberry Collagen masks. It's more of a gel and there is plenty in the package so I fold the mask after the first use and put it back into the package so I can use it another time. It has a very light fragrance reminiscent of raspberries. CL is a Japanese brand and I've seen more variations of their Sheet Masks online and I am intending to order some to try them out. I pay US$30/10 pieces incl. shipping.


Another great mask is the Skin Food Cucumber Soothing Mask. I put one in the fridge for 15 mins and then apply to my face for a truly refreshing feeling. Those are especially great now for summer! They carry a light cucumber scent but with a sweet note so they smell quite yummy.


I've also tried Etude House O2 Whitening masks but wasn't really impressed.

The Acerola Mask by MISSHA looks good but I haven't tried it yet. I will update after trying it out.


On ebay you can purchase small "tablets" of sheet masks in packs of 30 or 60 I think. You can just soak them in the Essence or Serum you want to turn every skin care item into your personal sheet mask.

Updated June 14: Got more Sheet Masks incl. masks for the eye area only:

I love sheet masks too and just discovered the many varieties you can get. I'm gotten quite a few from ebay sellers from Hong Kong.

The Acerola face mask by Missha is the very first sheet mask I ever tried - it's the Garden Botanical collection (different package picture?)
I didn't like it- it slightly burned when it was on (not tingle)and I woke up with several tiny new breakouts. Otherwise- no change.
I have 3 other types to try...
