Face masks always offer instant gratification, but who wants to get your hands dirty with a mushy paste or gel to do so? The sheet mask has rapidly transformed from an Asian skincare sensation to the lazy girl’s go-to for good-looking skin. As we all wind down from the week, I searched through my stash of sheets to find five of my favorite formulas to take care of some of your biggest skin gripes. Simply apply one of these prior to your Netflix binge, and you’ll be glowing and gorgeous before you know it—no rinse required!
- Hydration: Beauty 360 Hydrating Purifying Tissue Facial Mask, $3.99
CVS has seriously stepped up its beauty aisle over the past year to offer more options for budget-conscious beauty babes. This sheet is perfect if the heat is still on at home or if you spend a day out in the sun. It’s sure to saturate skin with moisture, as it’s formulated with salicylic acid and olive fruit extract to keep pores primed for deep hydration.
- Anti-Aging: SK-II Facial Treatment Mask, $17.00
SK-II is one of those brands where you relish every drop of any of their products, even saving the sachet to slather on the rest of the beauty potion at another time. It’s formulated with a concentrated dose of Pitera, the brand’s signature ingredient, which contains amino acids, vitamins, and nutrients that revitalize the skin and kick the natural rejuvenation process into gear for a fresh-faced look.
- Radiance: Shiseido White Lucent Power Brightening Mask, $68 for 6 masks
This sheet mask does double duty to give you a more even tone with just one application. Using Ion Force Technology, its proprietary brightening ingredient 4MSK dives deep to target the cause of dark spots and then ejects the accumulated pigment for a clearer complexion in just 10 minutes!
- Acne: Dr. Jart+ Pore Minimalist Mask, $35 for 5
Need to banish blackheads or a bad breakout? This sheet mask is for you! The black mask uses activated Korean charcoal to detoxify while the serum’s blend of spearmint and arginine soothe as well as clear out and shrink pores, thereby stopping the excessive flow of sebum on your skin.
- Eye: Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels, $30 for 8 pairs
If your peepers are too puffy to pop with the rest of your look, these petite patches are sure to perk them up. The brand’s iconic patches are packed with antioxidants to soothe and push pause on aging while Ginko Biloba and Pure Molecule Oxygen brighten up dark circles. Pro-tip: pop these into the fridge for a few minutes for an even more refreshing effect.
