Before this mask, I
A) hated sheet masks and
B) was suspicious of drugstore skin care.
I didn’t like how goopy some sheet masks were, and they felt too… luxurious. Even at $3, which seems cheep, the price of this mask builds up with each use. My Origins Charcoal mask is $17 (I have a travel size), I’ve had it for a year and I’ve used it an estimated 20-30 times. I’m not even finished with it! Something about the fact that sheet masks can only be used once, and I have to plan for each use I didn’t like. I would squirrel them away, never using them.
Since I’ve started using these, I’ve started to like that. I save them for special occasions when my skin needs a bit of extra help or when I have an event coming up. It’s relaxing to put on a face mask, and even more relaxing to know I’ve saved it for a special moment!
So I guess you have to take the good with the bad when you use sheet masks. Reasonably, a sheet mask would be 25¢ or so (which makes Charlotte Tilbury’s new mask all the more outrageous). Since no company is going to sell sheet masks for a quarter, I guess $3 isn’t all that bad!
Price aside, how does the product itself work? Read on to find out!
I’m not going to talk about the packaging because I threw it out immediately after taking these photos. It doesn’t leak, so I’m going to give it all the points!
Quick note: I wouldn’t recommend this for sensitive skin. It is extremely tingly on the skin, which doesn’t bother me but it may bother some people’s skin. I typically leave masks on for longer then the instructions suggest, but for this I stick to the recommended 10 minutes because of how much it tingles.
I find this works best when my skin is feeling really tired or I have a ton of breakouts. This will clear out my pores and make my whole face look brighter and fresh. It doesn’t drip at all either so I can put it on and get work done while I’m wearing it!
If I’m going to pick things to nitpick, the sheet itself is a little big for my face. Otherwise, I love this mask! It’s reasonably priced and is absolutely wonderful. It’s perfect for a facial pick me up! If you like detoxifying face masks and don’t mind a little tingling, I recommend you give this a try!
