I’ve amassed a lot of sheet masks. They’re an inexpensive pick-me-up that have become more readily available in Canada in recent years. For those of you who don’t know what sheet masks are, they’re pre-soaked disposable paper masks that delivers concentrated skincare (usually serum) to the face. After freshly cleaning the face, the sheet mask is applied for approximately 15 minutes and the remaining serum is allowed to soak into the face, followed by regular moisturizer. They’re an Asian beauty staple, and it used to be that I purchased mine exclusively online at sasa.com, but nowadays, with The Face Shop at our local shopping malls, and even drugstores carrying sheet masks, there are endless sources.
Here’s an overview of what’s in my current sheet mask stash – I won’t go too in-depth about each:
10x Face Shop Real Nature sheet masks @ $2 each. They’re often on some sort of volume discount so I like to stock up.
The outer 2 are also from The Face Shop but they’re a bit more pricey (around $5-8 each as I recall), but they’re supposed to be “awesome” as per the guy who helped me at the store. The middle one is by Leaders Insolution which I got at an overpriced Asian beauty shop downtown, called Jealousy. I think I paid $7 for it (I know, I got ripped off). The only reason why I bought it was because I’ve heard so many rave reviews about this brand of sheet masks, but it’s always sold out online.
Don’t discount these My Melody sheet masks because they’re so cute – they’re actually amazing sheet masks! This sheet mask was my introduction to 3D masks where the mask is slightly pre-shaped which makes them adhere to the face a lot better.
Box of 5 Lifecella masks – I did a search for “hyaluronic acid” on sasa and this one was well reviewed. I’ve used 1 mask so far and it’s quite nice – I plan to review these in the future.
I got the 3 on the right for free from the Korean beauty store where I buy my favourite BB cream, and I found the 3 on the left at the drugstore, the “Life” brand is the private label brand of our major drugstore chain, Shoppers Drug Mart. They were 3 for $5 and are made in Korea.
Random sheet masks from sasa – I always stock up on sheet masks whenever sasa offers free shipping on $29 minimum purchase. I load up my cart with $29 worth of sheet masks each time. 🙂
I like to sort by lowest price when I’m on sasa – that aqua moisture mask only cost $1 and it’s great.
A few eye masks. I can’t wait to use the Tony Moly one because it looks hilariously ridiculous.
In total, I currently have 42 sheet masks (not including the eye masks). I plan to use 1 to 2 masks per week and then when I’m down to a few, I will replenish my inventory.
