Sheet masks are so trendy right now, so I’ve been trying some of them. I’ve found most of them to be pretty lackluster, but then I tried one that was included in a beauty box several months ago: SK-II Facial Treatment Mask.
The mask was sopping wet when I pulled it out of the foil. I put it on my face and then went to go watch TV. The instructions say to leave it on for 15 minutes, but I had read reviews from lots of people who typically leave it on for 30 minutes, so I decided to leave it on for 30 minutes.
As I waited the 30 minutes, I could literally feel my skin changing. It just felt like it was getting increasingly more and more moisturized. Once I took the mask off, there was still some residue. I decided to rub it into my face instead of washing it off (there’s some debate online as to which is preferably, but I think you get more out of this product when rubbing it in). My skin was glowing! It looked amazing after just 30 minutes of wearing the mask. I kept checking it in the mirror to see if the effects had worn off but they hadn’t. This was a one-time-use sheet mask, but I actually decided to put it in a ziplock back and use the other the side the next evening.
When I woke up the next morning, my skin still looked great. My skin was glowing and looked clearer with much less noticeable acne than the day before. I was so incredibly impressed by this product. Unfortunately, I then looked up the price on Sephora’s website. You can buy one sheet mask for a whopping $17. That is so expensive for a one-time-use product, but it’s a lot less expensive than getting a professional facial. I will absolutely be buying this product when I want to splurge a little, but unfortunately it’s a bit too expensive for me to use it weekly. It’s for sure too expensive for me to use it two to three times a week which is what I’d really love to do.
So, to recap, if you are fabulously wealthy, you should absolutely include this mask in your usual skincare routine. If you are a poor librarian like me, I think it is still worth the splurge when you feel like your skin needs to refresh!
