Oily and combination skin types can benefit from this sheet mask with extracts of vinegar and egg white. Formulated to help reduce the appearance of large pores, the ultra-soft microfiber sheet mask fits comfortably atop facial contours for effective penetration of the concentrated serum. To use, apply the mask to fit the contours of your face. Press gently with your fingertips to spread the serum and leave on for 10 to 20 minutes. When time runs out, peel the mask off your face and massage the remaining serum into your skin.

Achieving instant radiance from a sheet mask formulated with egg white extract? Yes, please! To use, cleanse your face as usual to remove makeup. Apply the sheet mask onto your skin and relax for 10-20 minutes. When removing the mask, use circular motions to massage the residual liquid into your skin. No need to rinse!
If you don’t have time to kick up your feet, a sheet mask may not be the best option for you. The sole reason being that multi-tasking while wearing a sheet mask across your face can make it difficult to stay on. For a mask you can wear while you do housework, reach for this Egg White Cream Mask by My Spa Life. All you need is 15 minutes to reveal brighter-looking skin.
Don’t have time for a full-blown spa day but still want to pamper your skin? Reach for this hot steam pack formulated with Amazonian clay, sulfur, volcanic ash, and egg white extract. The formula, which heats up with contact with the skin, can deliver a quick, spa-like experience while helping to cleanse the skin of impurities. To use, apply an even layer onto dry skin, paying extra attention to problem areas. Leave on for 3-5 minutes and rinse with lukewarm water.
For a mask without the steam, reach for this Skinfood formula with albumen (a protein found in egg whites). Watch as this mask transforms into a powdery consistency once dried on the skin. For this Skinfood mask, you’ll want it to leave it on a bit longer that the last one—about 10-15 minutes—before washing off with lukewarm water and following with moisturizer.
Despite the name, this mask isn’t a peel-off. It’s a wash-off face mask formulated with extracts from egg white and oat. As you massage the mask into your skin, it delivers scrub-like benefits of exfoliating dead skin cells. To use, let the mask sit on your skin for 20 minutes before washing it off.
