Welcome back to my blog 🙋
Face masks used to be my favourite step in skincare but I’ve found a new love which I’ll be sharing another time, so let’s go back to my old love for a minute. I’ve tried lotssss of face masks. From DIYs to clay masks and peel off masks (which I’m never using again) see my thoughts on it hereAnd then there are sheet masks.
Sheet masks are basically materials soaked in serums. Even though it’s not a necessary step in a skincare routine, it helps with hydrating the skin.On one of my visits to the mall, I came across this sheet mask by facefacts and it sold for 840naira which was quite affordable, but given that it contains just 2 packs and can be used only once according to the instructions on the pack, it’s not so budget friendly if you want to have a staple hydrating product in your routine.
This product specifically says it’s for hydration and the ingredients were geared towards that as well. It contains aloe vera, cucumber extract and sodium hyaluronate which nourishes and attracts moisture to the skin(would you be interested in knowing more about particular ingredients in skincare products? Let me know in the comments)
So the material of the mask felt like a thin fabric and it was light. I applied it after cleansing and toning my face. It applied well on my skin and it didn’t threaten to fall off at any point. It stayed put for the 20 minutes I had it on. My face felt supple, hydrated and glowy after I took it off. It’s not meant to be rinsed off so I went ahead to pat the excess serum on my face into my skin then applied my moisturizer over it.
I used this at two different times of the day to see if it would make any difference. It said on the packet that it can be used on the skin to get a great base for applying makeup. When I used it in the morning and wore makeup that day, my face looked really good. A good balance of dewy and matte finish which made the make up look natural and didn’t need to blot as much oil from my face like I would have done on a normal day.
When I used it at night, I woke up the next day with well hydrated skin. Again, my face didn’t feel oily and my skin felt supple. That’s what hydration does to the skin. And yes, oily skin needs to be moisturized too.
Overall, I had a great experience with this but would only repurchase when I’m feeling bougie and want something extra. It’s better to invest in serums and moisturizers than sheet masks because sheet masks give temporary fixes and they’re not economical or cost effective because you get to use them only once.
Thanks for reading.
