Sheet Mask Showdown Vol. 4
Y’all, it is time for the final Sheet Mask Showdown. I had bought a few of these back in August when Sephora had that customer appreciation sale for changing their rewards program and then added on a few others while I procrastinated trying them out. I used to like trying out sheet masks but the older I get the more dry, sensitive and reactive my skin seems to get and thus the less I enjoy trying sheet masks out of fear of a negative reaction. Sheet masks are also not the most eco conscious or economical so I’ve gotten more into face masks (that come in a jar or tube) over the past six months; not only are they more eco friendly and money saving in the long run but it’s also a bit more rewarding, at least to me, when you find a really good face mask that works well for your skin. The Youth to the People Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask is my current favorite, I use it like a moisturizer every night (it says it works best if you use it nightly). Anyways, back to what we’re here for and we’re going out with a bang on this series because we’ve got some pretty bougie brands in this one. If this is your first time with this series here’s how my rating system works for sheet masks:
☆ = I had a negative reaction and possibly had to remove early because it was irritating my skin so badly and/or had prolonged negative reaction.
☆☆ = Zero benefits shown and possibly a minor negative reaction but nothing that lasted.
☆☆☆ = Meh, it's fine, skin looks okay and there was no negative reaction but it's not doing anything special for me beyond what my normal skincare routine does.
☆☆☆☆ = This is some pretty dang good stuff, skin looks visibly better with no negative reaction(s) but there’s still room for a little improvement.
☆☆☆☆☆ = Perfection, this is the best thing that has ever touched my skin and I look like an angel baby. Definitely no negative reaction but practically impossible to reach this level since I have incredibly high standards and finicky skin.
I also might take off half a star if something is overpriced (LOL with this group) or is only sold in multiples since those are negatives to me. I’m going to go in order in which I tested these because that’s what order my notes are in so let’s get to it!
My clear favorite out of this group was the Lancôme mask, it worked really well and I actually like when you can leave a mask on for longer because then I feel like I’m getting reaping more benefits from the product. I also really liked the SK-II mask but I wish it was sold individually so people could try just one to see if they like it before committing to the six or ten count (especially for that price). Out of the 29 sheet masks I’ve tried in four Sheet Mask Showdowns I wanted to give my top recommendations, some of these I have not used in over two years so I’m going off of my old reviews so keep that in mind:
Farmacy Hydrating Coconut Gel Mask Deep Moisture $9 for one at Sephora - I rated this ☆☆☆☆ about two years ago and it currently has ☆☆☆☆.1 on Sephora’s website
Skin Laundry Hydrating Facial Sheet Mask $48/8 at Nordstrom - I rated this ☆☆☆☆ 1/2 two years ago and my review has me convinced I’d want to try it again because I liked it so much. I originally bought mine at Sephora but it seems as though they no longer carry this product and Ulta sells it individually for $10 but they’re currently out of stock
Patchology Hydrate Flashmasque Facial Sheet $30/4 at Dermstore - This one I rated ☆☆☆☆ 1/2 as well and it has a perfect ☆☆☆☆☆ review on Dermstore but that’s based off of only three reviews. I bought mine individually at Ulta but it seems as though they don’t carry this mask anymore.
Sulwhasoo Snowise Brightening Mask $130/10 at Beautylish - Another ☆☆☆☆ 1/2 review and I distinctly remember not expecting to like this one at all and being very pleasantly surprised. I received mine as an individual in a Beautylish Lucky Bag and I believe the only way you can purchase this one is in the 10 pack which is a bite but it was a really good sheet mask.
Lancôme Advanced Génifique Hydrogel Melting Mask $15 for 1 or $55/4 at Sephora - As we saw today a ☆☆☆☆ 1/2 and love that it’s sold as an individual to try first.
SK-II Facial Treatment Mask $95/6 or $135/10 at Sephora - Also saw this one today as a ☆☆☆☆ and despite it’s hefty price tag and lack of single purchase opportunity I still have to recommend it in the top six since it was a memorable favorite.
Half of those were some of the most expensive ones I’ve tried so it seems as though I have bougie skin to go along with my already bougie taste. As I said in the beginning I don’t see myself doing anymore Sheet Mask Showdowns, just not very exciting for me anymore and quite frankly doesn’t seem worth it when I’ve had so many duds. I would rather spend my time and money on makeup, that’s what I get the most excited about when it comes to editing photos and writing for the blog so that’s what I’m going to do. Regardless, I hope you enjoyed the last installment and I hope to see you back here soon for the next blog post!
