The Best Sheet Mask for Every Skin Type
Good for: Hydration and softening skin
This mask is one of Korean Beauty’s all-time best sellers and it’s perfect all year round but especially in winter. Modelled off the kind of IV drips they use in hospitals, Leaders Insolution Aquaringer Mask answers the skin’s SOS call for more hydration!
This sheet mask is so popular all over the world that it sells by the hundreds of millions every single year.
In addition to diminishing dead skin cells, it delivers intense and long-lasting hydration with a nourishing essence that leaves you feeling beautifully hydrated. Phew, winter crisis averted!
Good for: Hydration, brightening, sensitive skin
Don’t be fooled by the pretty packaging – PACKage’s beautiful face masks contain some seriously hard-working ingredients that’ll have your winter skin looking smoother, softer and more hydrated than it was in summer!
PACKage’s Everyday Bouncy Face Mask is jam-packed with honey, propolis, galactomyces and niacinamide that’ll leave skin firm, toned and hydrated for hours on end.
The formula is anything but gimmicky, being cruelty free and free from parabens, fragrances, alcohol, pigments, PEGs, phenoxy ethanol, silicone and mineral oils
Good for: Anti-aging, hydration
Tosowoong is a cult favorite in K-beauty circles for several reasons: the face masks are cheap, drenched with great natural ingredients, and stay hydrated for ages. (Pro-tip: Lesser quality sheet masks dry out faster.)
Our favourite for winter is Tosowoong Pure Propolis Mask but you can also choose from green tea, snail, blueberry, aloe, and deep sea water.
Good for: Hydration, skin repair, anti-aging
If cheap and cheerful is the order of the day, then we can’t go past Mizon Joyful Time Essence Mask Snail. Each mask utilises a “moisture gel matrix” which holds the moisturising and skin conditioning ingredients together in a hydrating mesh structure.
This is designed to immediately increase skin’s hydration upon application.
Made with Mizon’s signature snail mucin extract, this mask encourages cell turnover and stimulates collagen synthesis to strengthen, tighten and enhance skin’s stretch and resilience.
Good for: A bit of luxury and dry skin
If you’re looking to splurge on a little luxury, then Mamonde’s luxurious Mamonde Narcissus Hydrating Flower Lab Essence mask is the perfect fit. Containing particles of the Narcissus flower, which have been filtered three times to impart moisture to the skin quickly, it cares for dry skin for hours on end.
The “Light Fit Cell”-type mask sheet is made from eucalyptus tree pulp that makes skin moist and soft, creating that Korean “chok chok” glow.
Good for: Tired, rough skin
If your skin is tired, rough, dull and lacklustre, take it back to nature with The Saem Natural Oatmeal Mask Sheet. Oatmeal is a natural skin soother that assists in strengthening the skin’s moisture barrier and keeping it hydrated for longer.
The mask is also packed with trehalose (an ingredient with water-binding properties and antioxidants) as well as prickly pear, which takes care of inflammatory and aging skin.
The formula is free from parabensm benzophenone, silicon, artificial colouring and mineral oil.
Good for: Acne, wrinkles, redness and dull skin
It’s STYLE STORY’s all-time best-selling face mask and for good reason.
Benton’s luxurious Snail Bee High Content Mask contains active ingredients Snail Secretion Filtrate and Bee Venom to calm redness, even out skin tone, brighten your complexion and minimise wrinkles. It’s perfect for mature, red, dry, acne-prone and sensitive skins.
Good for: Brightening, uneven skin tone and gentle exfoliation
A’Pieu’s adorable milk face masks are not only good to look at – they’re packed full of milky goodness as well!
Enriched with Vitamin D and antioxidants the A’Pieu White Milk Mask helps to brighten skin, even out the complexion and deeply hydrate with real milk protein extract. Milk can remove dead skin and is rich in Vitamin D, which is beneficial for skin. It boosts collagen production and slows the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.
Milk also protects the skin from free radicals and can fade dark spots or marks. The mask sheet itself is made from 100% hypoallergenic cotton and contains unique air pockets that hold moisture and deliver the treatment evenly across your face.
Good for: Strengthening and hydrating
It’s Skin’s infamous Power 10 collection of serums tailored for every skin concern now come in face mask form and we couldn’t be happier about it. Power 10 Formula CO Mask Sheet blends star ingredient collagen extract with tea tree, eucalpytus, lemon and oregano to firm and strengthen skin.
The soft and transparent sheet that moulds to your face, leaving your complexion firmer, smoother, hydrated and more radiant – just the antidote for winter!
Good for: Anti-aging, nourishing and hydrating
Korea’s favourite root – the highly prized ginseng – is the star of cruelty-free K-Beauty label Goodal’s Mild Sheet Mask Ginseng. Made from a 100% eco-friendly bamboo sheet mask, it provides intense hydration to skin.
Ginseng Root itself offers intense hydration and may assist with anti-ageing. The mask also combines honey, algae, macadamia nut seed oil and sodium hyaluronate to provide humectant and emollient components that are perfect for moisturising skin.
