Editor's Pick: A Hydrogel Sheet Mask You Have to TryDecember 28, 2016
Sheet masks are all the rage in the beauty sphere these days—and not just amongst K-beauty junkies. Brides-to-be, celebrities, and skin care aficionados alike have taken the plunge many a time, of which photographic proof on social media abounds. Surprising? Not one bit. Sheet masks deliver product onto the skin in a concentrated way, ensuring that all those good-for-your-skin ingredients are soaked up. Think of it like putting a lid or cover on your skin—the way you would a pot of chicken stew—so that all the good stuff is kept inside and can’t escape.
While sheet masks are definitely worth the hype, not all of them are created equal. But don’t fret. If dullness is one of your skin woes, we’ve got the perfect sheet mask for you! Decleor recently sent over complimentary samples of their new Aurabsolu Instant Glow Hydrogel Mask for the Skincare.com team to try and review, and it’s safe to say that it has collectively won over our hearts. Here’s why.
Decleor Aurabsolu Instant Glow Hydrogel Mask
Let’s face it: We all have long days, and suffer from fatigue and stress from time to time—and our skin can show it. That’s where this hydrogel mask comes in. Infused with Jasmine Absolute and an expert blend of essential oils, this formula helps unveil a complexion that looks even, radiant, hydrated, and well-rested. Think of it like a customized facial at home, though you can totally take the mask with you on-the-go thanks to its individual packaging. Warning: You’ll look hella scary with it on—think: a prop from a horror film. But that’s all part of the fun, no?
To use, remove the mask from the sachet and unfold. Apply to a cleansed and toned face using outward smoothing motions, ensuring that all areas of skin are covered. Leave the mask on for 10 minutes before gently removing it.
Note: There’s no denying that sheet masks offers amazing skin benefits, however they cannot—and should not—replace a regular skin care regimen that includes cleansing, moisturizing, and applying SPF. Add sheet masks into your routine to up the ante a bit, but definitely don’t toss your current skin care arsenal!
