Finding an incredible sheet mask is up there with nailing the perfect eyeliner flick (in one go) or cracking open a brand new highlighter for the first time. There's nothing better.
That being said, there's a whole lot of sheet masks out there, some amazing, some not-so amazing... So if like me, you need a little help sorting the great from the average, Reddit is here to help. Yup, after stumbling across this sheet mask reviews thread, it's safe to say that my face mask collection is about to get a lot more exciting.
1. Dr Jart Rubber Mask Hydration Lover, £10
"The Ampoule pack that comes with it packs a ton of serum, and the jelly mask creates a great occlusive barrier to trap the serum in and prevent drying out. It says to leave it for 20-30 minutes, but no more than 40. I always go for the full 40 minutes. Your face is so hydrated and moisturised after." Says Reddit user, Veronicaxrowena.
2. Innisfree Skin Clinic Madecassoside Mask, £1.99
"You won’t be able to pry Innisfree’s Skin Clinic Madecassoside sheet mask even from my cold, dead hands. My face positively glows for well over a day whenever I use one. And if my face is ever angry at me from a hormonal break out, it calms down any redness. For me, it is magic in a packet" says TheRamblista.
3. Innisfree It's Real Squeeze Mask Kiwi, £2.50
"My favourite mask is Innisfree's It's Real Squeeze Kiwi Mask. It's super cheap and effective. It smells heavenly and hydrates my skin to its maximum potential. My face looks glowy and feels supple to the touch. The next morning is what amazes me the most... it makes my skin look so healthy and radiant, like it has been rejuvenated." Says Reddit user, putchaiko.
4. My Beauty Diary Imperial Bird's Nest Mask, £16.25 for 8
"I have used a lot of sheet masks and the best sheet mask for me is the My Beauty Diary Imperial Bird's Nest Mask. I have a routine where I put the sheet mask on right after I have shaved my face and toned my skin, and so far this is the only mask that I have used that made my skin look really plump and healthy after! Even I was surprised!" Says dwarferno.
5. Cosrx Holy Moly Snail Sheet Mask, £2.95
"I've practically been shouting this from the rooftops, but I keep a hoard of the Cosrx Holy Moly snail masks. They're the most soothing thing I've ever put on my face and have saved me after a few bad reactions. I typically don't like sheet masks (if only because so many break me out), but I hope to never be without these." Says horsesalwaysknewher.
6. SK II Facial Treatment Mask, £110 for 10
"I find it incredibly healing and it is my go to whenever I have a big day coming up. It's as though it erases all the harsh environmental aspects that may have damaged your skin and replenishes it completely." Says putchaiko.
7. Mediheal I.P.I Lightmax Ampoule Mask, £16.78 for 10
"This is a brightening regular sheet mask that has arbutin and sodium hyaluronate high up on the ingredient list, and some other brightening ingredients such as vitamin C and grape fruit extract further down on the list. I like this mask because it has a lot of essence, and I like the fragrance (last item on the ingredient list). I can’t really describe what it smells like, but it’s really soft to me, obviously if you don’t like fragrance you should avoid this one, but for me, it’s a nice additive." Says veronicaxrowena.
