Sheet masks are the latest celebrity beauty trend. Here are the best ones to buy this holiday season
Sheet masks are all the rage with the beauty, makeup and skincare-loving crowd because they're intensely nourishing and only demand a short period of time to work their magic.
Sheet masks are packed with active ingredients that can hydrate, calm, brighten and de-clog your complexion.
Because not all products are created equally, we've done the research and found the best sheet masks to gift your family and friends this holiday season:
Pure + Simple Super Hydrating Face and Neck Mask
This cloth sheet mask by Canadian plant-based beauty brand Pure + Simple is designed to hydrate and plump dry skin with algae extract and hyaluronic acid. Licorice root and senna seed will brighten a dull complexion in 20 minutes or less. This mask covers your face and neck, which most don't do.
$20 at pureandsimple.ca.
Dr. Jart+ Water Replenishment Cotton Sheet Mask
This sheet mask has chamomile extract to calm and hydrate your skin, marine collagen to plump fine lines with nourishment and witch hazel to strengthen the corneum barrier and keep hydration in. This award-winning sheet mask has incredible value because it's so effective — yet so inexpensive.
$9 at Sephora.
Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle 24K Gold Intense Wrinkle Sheet Mask
This package of 6 is the gold standard of sheet masking and its benefits reach far beyond surface-level hydration. This all-natural, cotton sheet mask will effectively tame fine lines and wrinkles like many people believe only Botox will do — which isn't true. With a high concentration of hyaluronic acid, peptides and neuropeptides, and actual 24 karat gold, this mask leaves skin smooth, plump and hydrated.
$84 at Sephora.
Tony Moly I Am Real Tomato Skin Glow Mask Sheet
This sheet mask from Korea looks cute on the outside, but it packs a mighty punch. It's incredible for brightening the complexion because it contains Solanium lycopersicum (tomato) fruit extract that uses its acidity to slough old skin away and reveal a younger, brighter complexion.
$5 at Hudson's Bay.
Boscia Charcoal Pore Minimizing Hydrogel Mask
This is a deep-cleansing mask that somebody with visible, and visibly clogged, pores will appreciate, because it removes blackheads. The hydrogel mask comes in two pieces so it's easier to apply. Some hydrogel masks get slippery and stuck together, rendering them useless. Not this one!
$10 at Sephora.
Sephora Collection Pomegranate Eye Mask
Have you ever sipped too much wine on a work night? Have you ever stayed up too late watching Netflix instead of guaranteeing 8 hours of rest? If your lifestyle includes habits like these, you'll want to make this eye mask your friend. It's anti-inflammatory ingredients reduce puffiness and take the tired look away.
$6 at Sephora.
