Okay so, anyone who follows this blog (who, to my knowledge, is mostly my Mum. HI MUM!) will see I’ve been REALLY terrible at keeping up with posting. I’m hoping to post more often, it’ll still be fairly sporadic for a while at least though!
So let’s dive in! I had trouble picking some favourites so I thought about the times I’d mask most often, and what I look for in each, then picked my fave for those particular needs!
For special occasions:
Evercos Luxury Bogam Herbal Clinic – Licorice
If I have an event to go to in the evening, I’ll throw one of these on before moisturiser and the rest of my makeup for the night. These are my absolute favourite masks, they’re super thin and clingy and no mask has ever made me glow like these!I’m obsessed!
For temperamental skin:
Papa Recipe – Bombee Honey Mask and My Beauty Diary – Apple Polyphenol
When I have a lot of new pimples cropping up or I’m approaching that time of the month where my jawline trends to explode in annoying new guests I’ll pop one of these on, Honey for days I need to soothe my skin, and Apple for days where I feel like I’m being infested with new face friends and need to fight back! I find they really help tame existing pimples and make tiny ones fade away before becoming a bigger problem.
For speedy healing:
COSRx – Holy Moly Snail Mask
It happens, a friend’s rogue kitten got too excited, I walked into a tree branch again, or I just failed at skincare and got sunburned or picked at my face. These manage to heal things SO FAST and have, at times, managed to take my face looking like I got a “touch of sun” back to my usual “Basement Goth” pallor. Holy Moly indeed.
For super hydration (or just everyday):
Goodal – Water Full (Nutrition), Make p:rem – Comfort Me Air and Innisfree – It’s Real Squeeze (Rice)
For those times when my face feels kinda blah, for me, 90% of the time, it means my skin is thirsty. Almost any sheet mask will give you a dose of hydration, but these are my favourite to really get my skin back on track with a bit of pampering. These are my favourite “every day” masks as well, my skin just loves them!
For softness & moisture:
Too Cool For School – Egg Cream Mask (Firming), Elizavecca Milky Piggy – Silky Creamy Donkey Steam Cream *pant pant* these names! And last but not least, Illi – Intensive Moisture Hanbang (Camellia Oil Nourishing)
I mostly keep a few of these around for after I go away for camping and LARP, my skin is always tired, stressed, dehydrated and this is the easy way to get myself back into good skin days. The reason I don’t use these more often is they’re a little rich for my taste, but in winter or if you’re having a dry skin day (or, for some of you, a dry skin life, HI MUM!) you’ll love these.
What’s your top 10 sheet masks? Or the *holy grail mask* you have almost endless backups of?
