I do think that the perfect way to wind down after a stressful day is a bubble mask and a face mask. There’s something calming about both of these things. I recently have tried a lot of sheet masks, and one I was excited to try was the Sephora Algae Face Mask.
The goal of this face mask is to purify and detoxify the skin with algae. It can be purchased from Sephora for $6, which is an average price for a one-time-use sheet mask.
I think that if your goal is to just relax and unwind, this is a nice face mask option. It’s inexpensive enough to not make you feel guilty, but the act of putting on the sheet mask and unwinding can still make you feel pampered. However, if your goal is to actually purify and detoxify your skin, this isn’t your best bet. I’ve yet to use a Sephora brand sheet mask that did a whole lot for my skin besides possibly making it feel a teeny bit more moisturized.
So, essentially, I think this product is a fun addition for an at-home spa day, but it’s certainly not going to become a staple in anyone’s skincare routine. If you’re looking for actual skincare results, I would suggest the brands SK-II or Dr. Jart + instead.
