Today’s blog post is a review on a plethora of
masks! As anyone who follows my Instagram knows, I’m a proper sheetmask addict!
I’m in the one a day club, and even host sheetmask parties with my girl friends
to share the love. Yet to convince the other half that he’ll love it, but
working on it.
So onto the reviews! There’s two sheetmasks, one eye
hydrogel, one lip mask and a nose patch. Just demonstrating how versatile the
mask category truly is.
Skin18 kindly sent me all 5 of these masks to
review. They have a great selection of products on their website and prices are
reasonable. These masks were shipped quickly and packaged well.
Looking at the ingredients you can see there’s some
notable highlights! Royal Jelly – Nourishing and good
for Anti-Aging Honey – My love for honey is well
documented. Anti-bacterial and moisturising.
What should be pointed out is that this mask also contains Alcohol and
Fragrance. So be wary of that.
Fit - The
main differentiating point of this mask is it’s “3D” fit, which purports to
offer a better fit for the face. Sadly for me it just made it more awkward to
wear, it folds down the face and sticks out and tucks under the chin. It stayed
on my face well, but I didn’t feel super comfortable. Scent & Essence – Light floral
scent to the mask, not unpleasant and has undertones of honey. Not much essence
on the mask itself though. I like my masks dripping in essence, but for those
who prefer a less messy experience this would work. Effects – Midly hydrating but
– Not a repurchase for me. If you’re a fan of the 3D fit then this is a good
bet, but for me the fit made the whole experience unpleasant.
Four Season Collagen Lifting
Wrinkle Care Intensive Mask (Anti-wrinkle Function)
Sinesis – Green Tea Extract! Love this ingredient, and am
happy to see it here. Anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial. Portulaca Olarecea Extract – I don’t
have many products with this in so was interested to find out that it has
Note that there’s alcohol and fragrance in this
Fit – Thin
mask, slightly difficult to unfurl but fit well on my face after a few
adjustments. Scent & Essence – Light floral
scent to the mask but sadly not of purin as the image suggests. Nicely soaked
in essence, there was enough for me to massage in ater 30 minutes of wearing
Effects – Hydrating. I am lucky
enough to not have wrinkles yet so can’t comment on the wrinkle combatting
– Would repurchase this. It’s a good basic daily use mask, that won’t break the
Luke Charcoal Nose Cleansing Strip
and Luke Hydrogel Eye Patch for Eye Puffiness (Purple)
much to say on the nose strip. It’s effective as nose strips go, but I’ve never
found a difference between most brands! Something to keep in mind is that you
can damage your pores if you use these too much. So limit the amount of times
you use them. Even if they’re super fun to use!
Eye hydrogels aregreat though. I love eye hydrogels
as the skin underneath your eye is more delicate and sometimes requires extra
pampering. These ones were a good fit, but didn’t have as much essence as I’d
have liked for an under-eye hydrogel. My skin was slightly brighter, but I’ve
had other hydrogels such as SNP which had a better effect. For the pricepoint
though I would repurchase for special occasions.

was my favourite product out of the 5 I was sent! I’d seen these online but
never had the courage to pull the trigger on them.
The first step is the exfoliating step. Gently rub the lip shaped sheet over
your lips. While this wasn’t as exfoliating as my usual sugar scrub my lips did
feel softer after use.
The second step is the hilarious gel lip mask step! It looks like you have
Kylie Jenner-esque giant lips. Sadly you can’t talk or drink while wearing
this. On the positive side it makes for a great snapchat.
The final and third step is the hydrating step this was a thick honey essence.
Which was slightly too sticky for my tastes. And being a perennial lip licker,
it was soon off my lips.
I had a lot of fun using this three step masking
kit. And while it didn’t plump up my lips it did add some much needed
hydration. Would be a fun one to do with friends/relatives!

sent! Any of them catch your eye?
