If you know me, you know I love a good face mask. I try to incorporate a mask into my nighttime skincare routine once a week. Skincare is so important and face masks are a great way to take care of your skin + treat yourself with a little spa-like relaxation. I recently set out on a quest to find the best face masks…
For today’s blog post, I thought it would be fun to try a few different sheet masks and then review and rank them. My review and ranking of these masks is based on how much I liked the mask + the following two factors:
1. Value for the price
2. Did the mask do what it is branded/claims to do?
#4: Farmacy Hydrating Coconut Gel Sheet Mask – $6
I picked up this Farmacy mask during the Sephora sale earlier this month (you can check out everything I bought during the sale HERE). I’ve never used any Farmacy products before so I was excited to try this mask. The first thing I noticed when I took this mask out of the packaging was the scent. The mask had a strong, almost citrusy scent to it… but maybe my sense of smell is off because the packaging said coconut and cucumber were in the mask? I could smell the mask the entire time I had it on and I feel like that would be a turn-off for some people. Also, I’m not sure if those with sensitive skin would want to put something so fragrant on their face.
The quality of this mask is great. It was thick and almost rubbery and it didn’t slide around on my face at all. The mask was super cooling and this particular mask is branded as ‘hydrating,’ but I don’t think it was anymore hydrating than any other mask I’ve tried. In fact, the next morning, my face felt a little dry.
I didn’t LOVE this mask or want to re-purchase it so I’d say it was my least favorite of the bunch. I wasn’t a huge fan of the scent and I didn’t find my face to be very hydrated after using it. At $6, the price is great, but there are other masks for the same price that I like much more.
#3: Glamglow Bubblesheet Oxygenating Deep Cleanse Mask – $9
When I searched for new face masks to try on Sephora’s website, I was definitely intrigued by this Glamglow mask. It’s hard to compare this mask to the other three in this post because this one is just SO different.
You put this face mask on before you take your makeup off. As soon as you put this on, the mask activates and the cleanser in it works to deep clean your face removing dirt, oil + your makeup. You leave it on for three minutes and while it’s cleansing your face, you can feel it almost tingling a bit and the mask actually starts foaming! When you remove the mask, most of your makeup (with the exception of your eye makeup) comes off with it.
After I took this mask off, I hopped in the shower with a makeup wipe to remove my eye makeup and surprisingly, when I ran the wipe over the rest of my face, I found that the mask really did remove all of my other makeup!
I liked this mask and I thought it was fun and unique compared to any other mask I’ve used. At $9, it costs a bit more than the others in this post and it’s not a mask I would want to use alllll the time. Like I said, it’s hard to rank this mask with the other three because it’s such a different concept, but I did like this a lot more than the Farmacy mask so I decided to put this one at #3.
#2: Dr. Jart Brightening Infusion Mask – $7.50
This Dr. Jart sheet mask is the first two-piece mask I’ve ever used. At first, the two pieces kind of slid around on my face a bit, but once the mask was on for a few minutes, the pieces stuck more in place. The quality of this mask was amazing. The pieces are thick and rubbery (similar to the Farmacy mask) and the mask really felt good on my face as it cooled and relaxed my skin.
I tried this mask when my skin had been looking a bit dull, as this mask contains Vitamin C and is supposed to brighten and reduce the appearance of dark circles and uneven skin tones. I really think this mask did its job well. My skin looked refreshed and bright when I took the mask off. Plus, the next morning, my skin felt super moisturized.
I think this mask is a good deal for the price, as Dr. Jart is a great brand, the mask was high quality, and it did what it claimed to do (brighten). I would definitely purchase this mask again + I now want to try out more sheet masks by Dr. Jart.
#1: Sephora Collection Perfecting and Brightening Mask – $6
My go-to masks are the Sephora Collection sheet masks. The Sephora Collection has a variety of sheet masks that focus on different skin benefits. I’ve tried many other sheet masks, but I always come back to these and this post proves that these are truly my favorite.
I’ve tried each of the different types of the Sephora Collection sheet masks and love them all equally. My selection depends on my skin’s needs at the time I buy/use the mask. For this post, I used the perfecting and brightening mask because the work week just seems to wear me out + drain my skin. Seriously, by the end of the week I look like a zombie. This particular mask really brightened up and revived my skin.
The Sephora Collection sheet masks are paper-thin in comparison to the other masks in this post, but they are still extremely cooling + relaxing. These sheet masks do a great job of making my skin feel and look amazing. I usually leave these on much longer than the directions say to try and get all of the product/benefits out of them. Out of all of the face masks I’ve tried, I don’t think there is a better sheet mask out there for the price. I would recommend these to anyone with sensitive skin or anyone looking for an awesome product at a great price.
