I love a good clay mask, but sometimes I just don’t have the time to go through the whole process (and the mess), so I grab a sheet mask out of my stash instead. That way, I know I’m guaranteed similar results, but without the extra steps involved with my usual clay or enzyme masks.
Sheet masks, much like other topical masks, aren’t one-size-fits-all, so I’ve put together some of my favourites so you can find one to cater to your skin type and preferences.
The Natural Option:
I recommend: Edible Beauty Express Bloom of Youth Infusion Mask
This sheet mask smells amazing, which shouldn't come as a surprise because it's made from 100% bamboo (fully biodegradable) and packed full of exotic botanical extracts, plus it also boasts some serious anti-ageing benefits.
- The mask works to efficiently refine, plump and illuminate the skin
Allows concentrated doses of active ingredients to infuse into the skin
Enhances skin firmness whilst promoting unique cell renewal
Contains Ribose, Hyaluronic Acid, Australian Lime Caviar & Pomegranate
The skin is left feeling smoother, deeply moisturised & more radiant
★★★★★ One of my favourites - Danielle
"By far one of my favourite masks ever! Even my partner noticed how much of a glow my skin would have the day after, these are the perfect masks to use before a big event, they definitely give your skin that glow that everyone wants! Only downfall is I wish there were more in a pack I love them that much!"
The Pre-Makeup Option:
I recommend: Estée Lauder Double Wear 3 Minute Moisture Priming Mask
this express mask - it's so handy that you only need to put it on for 3 minutes and I love the concept that it's a 'priming' mask, so you can chill out for 3 minutes prior to doing your makeup.
This primer-in-mask creates a perfectly primed canvas
Like a normal primer, it allows makeup to glide on evenly & smoothly
It’s nourishing & moisturising so it replenishes the skin & improves texture
Infused with Algae & Cucumber Extract to help calm & soothe skin
Simply leave it on for 3 mins before removing & massaging in remaining product
★★★★★ Must-have for special occasions - Nirali
"I found it really hydrating - it left my skin super smooth and I could feel it was more plump. I preferred this over the popular SK-II Treatment Mask, and would definitely use it again before doing a full face of makeup for a wedding or important event. It's a bit more expensive than the usual sheet mask I'd buy, but it's worth it for the results."
The Anti-Ageing Option
I recommend: Mirenesse Power Lift Dermal Firm Face Mask
All your anti-ageing powerhouse ingredients in one easy-to-use sheet mask! This medical-grade mask adheres to your face to effectively deliver a series of potent active ingredients to the skin.
It slowly shrinks after application to tighten & tone the skin
This mask hydrates, lifts facial contours & increases brightness
Leaves the face feeling supple & smooth and looking radiant & revived
Helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles
Use it for 15-20 minutes once a week for the best results
★★★★★ Power lift - Carlene
I use many Mirenesse products and this is one of my favourites. It leaves my skin smooth and moisturised like no other product I have ever tried. It is my special treat - my Mirenesse mask, a glass of nice wine and my favourite magazine. Just bliss!!"
