Korean Face Masks - Why are they so good?
Okay so it's Sunday night and the weekend may have been a little rough but what really keeps our faces looking beautiful and energised is a lovely Korean face mask every now and then <3.
Korean face masks, commonly known as sheet masks, are single-use cotton sheets that have been soaked in powerful skin-rejuvenating ingredients. Sometimes they will be infused with 24 karat gold or with Diamond powder nanotechnology, sounds very luxurious we know!
These sheet masks infuse their active ingredients into the skin for visible results almost immediately! It’s this delivery of skin-soothing ingredients that has earned Korean face masks their popularity. You might want to look into these popular brands such as Etude House, Berrisom, Laneige, Missha... (Just so you know, we have them all so you wouldn't need to look elsewhere). Whatever your skin needs; whether your skin is dry, oily or full of blackheads, we have a mask for it.
One of our favourites is the Benton Snail Bee Mask Pack. It is told that this particular mask is the Gold Standard of Korean sheet masks. The mask itself feels light, no heavy-fragrance and packed with large amounts of snail secretion and bee venom. The moment you peel it off, you could feel the glowing sensation from your skin, along with the chorus-of-angels note that you hear as a miracle is performed! Did we forget to mention it's only £2.29? Stock up!
Don't forget about Hydrogel Masks!

These masks are designed to rest on the curves of your face so you wouldn't need to lie down for a full 15mins. Time is of the essence! We have other things to do!
The main difference between sheet masks and hydrogel masks are the ingredients. The Korean gel masks are made with water and in a thin gel form. They have the ability to lock in moisture much better than sheet masks so your skin would feel intensely moisturized the moment you take off the mask.
