Sheet masks have been all the rage the past few months and I totally understand why. If you do not have time to make those monthly visits to the salons, sheet masks will certainly come to your rescue. It is the easiest way to pamper yourself at the comfort of your home. I absolutely love using these to unwind after a long day of work.
So today, I’ll be comparing a few sheet masks that are easily available in the market. Keep reading to find out which mask will best suit your needs.
Skin type: Dry and sensitive
- Innisfree Sheet Masks:
Innisfree sheet masks fit perfectly and have enough serum to cover your neck and chest as well. I prefer keeping the serum on overnight, but it does leave your skin feeling greasy.
I’ll be talking about the Innisfree Aloe Vera and Shea Butter sheet masks today. The former is hydrating and very refreshing. It gives a cooling sensation and is perfect for summers. It brightened my face the next day and is one of my favourites.
When I tried out the Shea Butter mask, I had some flakiness around my nose and trust me; the mask took care of all the dryness. While it is extremely moisturizing and a must try for dry skinned girls, oily skinned beauties will find this one heavy.
Price: Rs.100 for each mask
- The Face Shop Shea Butter Sheet Mask:
I had high expectations from this one, since everyone has been talking about these recently. It fit my face well and had more than enough serum to cover my face, neck and chest. If not washed, this one does leave greasiness behind as well.
Although this sheet mask moisturized my skin really well, it stung like crazy on my upper lip! I couldn’t bear it and had to cut off that part *headbang* I would recommend this to people with dry skin, as this will take away all the flakiness. But if you have sensitive skin, definitely stay away from this one.
Price: Rs.100 for each mask
- Avon Naturals Moisturizing Mask – Milk:
This sheet mask was wrapped in a plastic sheet unlike the others. Although the mask fit me well, it was quite thin compared to the rest. Also don’t know why, but it just wouldn’t stick to my upper lip! This one had a good amount of serum as well.
The Avon sheet masks come in only 2 variants as of now. It had a really strong smell, which was a huge turnoff for me. The smell did fade away after 5-10 minutes but it just failed to impress me. It hydrated my skin pretty well, but there wasn’t anything major that impressed me.
Price: Rs.160 for each mask
- MaskerAide Beauty Restore Sheet Mask:
The MaskerAide sheet mask had just the right amount of serum and it fit perfectly. It had a pleasant fragrance, which was not at all overpowering.
I used this mask before sleeping and let the serum stay overnight. The next day I woke up to visibly brighter skin, which was not at all greasy, the serum was completely absorbed. It gave my skin a subtle glow, which lasted for a good 1-2 days.
Price: Rs.460 for each mask
I’ve also tried the Sephora Sheet Masks earlier, which retail for about Rs.350. They were refreshing but I did not notice any other difference in my skin after using it.
Except Avon, all the above masks are paraben free. I’ve tried to review similar kind of sheet masks from all the brands, so that it is easier to compare. All the above masks are easily available on Amazon and Nykaa.
Conclusion: I would highly recommend the Innisfree sheet masks, as they’re reasonably priced as well as effective. If you have a wedding or party to attend and want some glow on your skin, go for the MaskerAide sheet masks.
Although sheet masks do not have long lasting effects, I love using them for a quick pamper session! Do you like using these masks? Which one is your favourite? Comment below and let me know.
