The Deets On The Sheets

So recently Sheet Masks have been having their moment in the beauty world, some have been long timers and some are brand new. However, besides from making us look like Hannibal Lecter, many of us are skeptical of them and don't really understand their purpose. I am here to help, I bring you two masks to talk about, what they do and who they are best for...


Before we get started, I will just summarise what a sheet mask is. It is a sheet (of paper?) which is pre soaked in an serum which you place on your face for 15 minutes, to allow your face to drink in the serum. When finished, you remove the sheet and massage in any excess serum that is sitting on your face.

Olay Total Effects Mask (The Pre-Night Out)
This face mask is packed with several great ingredients such as Niacinamide, Glycerin and Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract. These ingredients work to hydrate, brighten and reduce appearance of pigmentation/age spots. This feels very nourishing on the skin and has immediate results, the face feels tight and refreshed. Not only does it feel great but your face will literally be glowing. Anyone would have thought I shelled out hundred of pounds on a facial my skin looked so great and makeup applies so smoothly on top of this. I would dub this the ultimate pre-night out mask as your skin will look flawless before you have even applied your makeup, so it's one to save for any special occasions! However, I would mention that there are some somewhat naughty ingredients (hello parabens) in this mask but if it doesn't bother you then I would certainly try these masks out!

- £14.99, five cloth masks

Indeed Labs Hydraluron Moisture Boosting Mask (The Post-Night Out)
If you have heard of the cult serum Hydraluron, here is its intensive sister product. This mask is soaked in the Hydraluron formulation which contains Hyaluronic Acid, a molecule naturally found in the skin which works to retain moisture. This is an intense hydration mask which when followed with a thick night cream will replenish your skins thirst. It doesn't do a lot physically and you won't have tighter, plumper looking skin but your skin will feel plumped and hydrated. This is certainly a post-night out face mask to get your skin re-hydrated and is a great one to end the week with and make sure you put back all the moisture in the skin that two many drinks, travelling or stress may have taken out.

- £19.99, four sheet masks

Make sure to warn others when entering a room like this!

Will you be getting under the sheets?
