I love Korean beauty products almost as much as I like Japanese beauty products. Korean beauty is a weird and wonderful world full of sometimes insane lotions and potions but mostly high quality products After all it’s Korea that introduced the world to BB Creams (although it was invented in Germany but gained popularity in Korea and most of the great BB Creams are Korean made).
But today I’ll be introucing you to their amazing sheet masks. Sheet masks are paper like masks with holes for your nose, eyes and sometimes ears. They are soaked in a watery substance and then you apply them to your face and relax for 20-30 mins. They are much less messy than conventional face masks and they’re HUGE in Asia.
The one i’ll be reviewing today is Sasatinnie Aqua Boost Moisturising Mask.
These masks may feel and look a little bit strange on your face at first but that feeling soon passes. I did resemble something out of a horror film though so try and stay away from small children unless you want to scare them rigid. It has a very slight scent thanks to the green tea extract but it is a pleasant scent an isn’t at all overpowering and it’s quite relaxing. I just lay on my bed and relaxed for half an hour while the mask did its job. At the end of the twenty minutes I simply wiped away the residue of the mask. I was left with silky smooth skin. Like many Asian products this mask contains hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic Acid helps promote cell regrowth which is why it is often used in facial fillers like Restylane. I tend to use Sasatinnie masks quite often as they are low priced and they seem to work well on my skin. This mask is a godsend for this time of year when my skin tends to get very dry and it provides a shot of moisture to counteract the dehydration. I’d highly recommend giving it a try.
Have you tried any Asian sheet masks?
