Sheet masks are unquestionably prolific. Originally coined as ‘Korean face masks’, these spreadable sheets soaked in powerful, skin-loving ingredients are designed to rest on the curves of your face— just slap it on and it does all the work for you. You have to pretty much do nothing. Quite contradictory to my next point, my 9 to 5. A desk job, an influx of mails, meetings and tight deadlines can get taxing and invariably affects the health of my skin. Besides a hot bath, yoga and a good ol’ Tony Robbins podcast, there are days I lean on my sheet masks to unwind. I mostly pop them in the fridge to keep them nice and cool (oh, it helps). Now, these babies have honestly helped me through some tough days (sheet can get real, you see?).
That said, I decided to share the list of sheet masks I specifically have in my fridge right now.
Oh, and they’re all priced under Rs.160
Innisfree Jeju Root Energy Sheet Mask Beet
The amalgamation of five hyaluronic acid complexes and eucalyptus in this moisturizing treatment is what really got me to buy this mask again. I have extremely dry skin, so this product pushes a plush dose of hydration into my skin after a long day crouching in front of my laptop screen. Plus, it’s vegan.
TONYMOLY I'M Red Wine Mask Sheet
Sometimes your skin needs a drink more than you. Read that again. Coated with 100% natural ingredients, this mask delivers moisture to your skin in literally 10 minutes. It combats dryness and dullness. Plus why would I not own a sheet mask when it claims it had red wine in it.
Mirabelle Korea Coconut Essential Facial Sheet Mask
If you want to wake up with better skin than when you hit the bed, this is the mask for you. Going to slip in a truth bomb and admit that the malayali in me got to me to actually add this product to my cart (it’s got a rich punch of coconut oil, okay?). This sheet has helped me a great deal for all the endless all nighters that I experienced, staying up till the sun comes up, closing presentations and meeting decks.
The Face Shop The Solution Soothing Face Mask
My skin just feels improved and supple everytime I use this soothing mask by The Face Shop. Apart from being extremely dry, my skin can also get very sensitive at times. The calming oils in this mask helps treat mini inflammations and redness that I experience after wearing makeup the whole day.
Its Skin The Moisture & Fresh Mask Sheet - Bamboo
Rich in amino acids, the power of bamboo helps suck all the nasty toxins out of my skin sheet, leaving it relaxed and very clean. It gives me the hydration and a sense of freshness that I need on days I feel like a complete cavewoman. And it has no scent (which I love), making it the perfect product to use while I’m working.
