Sheet masks are extremely popular here in Korea. You can find them everywhere and they have a wide variety of formulas as well as price points. I usually pick up sheet masks at Olive Young or Boons, but you can find them online. Although I did not include them in my skincare routine post, I use sheet masks 2-3 times a week. The sheet masks are soaked in essence with various formulas (for brightening, tightening, moisturizing) that absorbs into your skin. The sheet masks can be made of fine cotton fabric or gel (I prefer the gel masks). After cleansing my face, I apply the sheet mask (they either come in a full sheet mask or in two parts) by removing the sheet mask from the plastic backing and placing it on your face by pressing down around your eyes and nose area and smoothing out the mask towards the hairline. Sheet masks should be left on for 15-20 minutes. After taking the sheet mask off, I massage my face and pat the remaining essence on my skin and follow with eye creme and facial creme on my face and neck. After using a sheet mask I always wake up with smooth and supple skin. Although I have a variety of sheet masks in my stash, my favorite is the Dr. Jarts+ Brightening Gel Mask*. The Dr. Jarts+ Brightening Mask is a thin gel mask and does a great job moisturizing my skin. I also like the Dewy Tree Deep Detox Black Mask which is a thin black fabric mask (see photo below) and although I'm not sure if it is really detoxing my skin, my skin feels moisturized after applying the mask. If you haven't ventured in to the exciting world of sheet masks, you should give them a try! And if you are a sheet mask fan like me, please let me know your favorites!
* I could not locate the Dr. Jarts Brightening Gel Mask online, but this mask looks very similar.
