Living in the era of the sheet mask, how do you know which is right and beneficial for your skin? I’ve rounded up my favorite picks for all skin types that have been my personal favorites for the past year. Surprisingly enough, I JUST started using sheet masks about 6 months ago and have completely fallen in love. They are so easy to throw on and lounge around or even get work done around the house while still getting an amazing facial. I’ve tested out hundreds at this point and have only found a handful that I’ve actually seen great results with.
I’m aware some of y’all don’t know what sheet masks are, so let me give you a little info. before we dive in. A sheet mask is a face-shaped fabric that is soaked in nutritious solutions known as setup. There isn’t only one type of sheet mask either. The sheets can be made up of paper, fibers, gels or even foil. Sheet masks come individually packaged so they can be used once and then thrown away. They are one of the fastest, most convenient ways for your skin to get an overload of great products all at once without having to pay for an actual facial.
I know we all aspire to have skin like when we were in our teens and twenties without spending thousands of dollars. These masks are the next best thing that show proven results, sometimes after just 1 use!

It features a bio-mimetic vector delivery system, which allows for a prolonged release of actives, and powers them into the epidermis. The dry textile mask is imprinted with active ingredients, unlike most traditional sheet masks that are water and glycerin.

Dr. Jart Hydration Lover Rubber Mask – The two-step system includes a highly concentrated ampoule serum and a rubber mask that was developed to hydrate and soothe the skin for an instant pick-me-up.
