We’ve all heard about 12 days of Christmas, or am I wrong? Starting from the 25th of Dec – the first day of Christmas I’ll be doing my own little sheet mask challenge!
There are multiple kb-bloggers out there that have tried out a 7-day challenge using a different sheet mask every day for seven days. Their end results have been glowy, hydrated skin like they’ve never seen before! So let’s do this challenge! I’ll be splitting it up into two posts, part one and part two. In this post we’ll take a look at the masks I’ll be using for 11 days and see what they are supposed to do for my skin.
In Korea, this is called, 1일 1팩, a beauty trend that started a few years ago when numerous Korean actresses credited their flawless, porcelain skin to their use of a sheet mask every day. This celebrity beauty regime secret has captured attention across the world, and SoKo Glam even did 100 layers of sheet mask challenge!
I’ve used all of these masks before, and some of them have been previously reviewed. Can you guess which ones? The Tony Moly I’m Real Mask Sheets! These are super affordable masks that can be bought in a bundle at different sellers on eBay. They usually cost something around 10-11 bucks but I got them on the “single days sale” for something around 6 bucks. The bundle comes with 11 different masks aimed at targeting different skincare issues and concerns, such as brightening, skin soothing, moisturizing and skin purifying.
These masks have a 3-layer pulp sheet which is filled with natural ingredients and soaked! in different types of enriched essence. Their main goal is to yield maximum hydration for your skin while targeting some other issues we might have.
This sheet mask is packed with Vitamin C, that brightens and evens out the skin tone. Vitamin C is well known for its capability even out the skin tone, shielding skin from the visible impacts of pollution and improving your skins hydration levels! It also does a great job with fading acne scars!
Tea Tree is a powerful anti-inflammatory agent, it protects skin from harmful environmental factors and soothes fatigued skin. However, this mask does not only contain tea tree extract, its also enriched with lemon, rosemary, thyme and jasmine extracts to balance and soothe the skin.
Tomatoes are not just an important part of a healthy diet, but it also works wonders when applied to the skin. Containing Vitamin E and tomato extract this mask removes impurities while providing anti-aging and brightening properties. This mask is supposed to revitalize the skin!
We all know what amazing things alone can do! This aloe sheet mask is enriched with a water-based essence that will provide maximum hydration for your skin. It does not only provide moisturizing properties, it also takes care of acne!
Pomegranate is a powerful antioxidant. This amazing fruit (that also is one of my favorite fruits to snack on) does not only nourish the skin, but it does also prevent damage caused due to free radicals. In addition to being anti-inflammatory and essential fatty acids, pomegranate possesses potent anti-aging compounds, which helps in stimulating skin cells thereby providing elasticity.
Well, we do all drink some red wine, or am I wrong? But how does red wine benefit our skin? The extract added to this mask reduces the appearance of enlarged pores while tightening and purifying the skin. Red wine is also great for acne, and it treats sunburns.
Makgeolli is a fermented rice wine rich in vitamins and minerals that is traditionally served in a bowl rather than a cup. It contains amino acids such as lysine and methionine keep the skin firm and vitamins B2 and B3 that are known to brighten the skin. The extract that is used for infusing this mask will refine and smooth the skin while purifying.
Antioxidant-rich broccoli provides vitalizing energy to the tired skin. Not does it only contribute to skin health, but it does also contain vitamin A and C. One compound in broccoli, called nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN), has been found to offer anti-aging benefits. NMN produces another compound important for energy metabolism – this compound fuels energy in our bodies, potentially eliminating some of the signs associated with aging!
Infused with rice extracts and natural oils to brighten and provide elasticity to the skin. Rice does not only stall premature aging, it also maintains the elasticity levels of the skin as well as curing eczema. Who doesn’t want clear and flawless skin?
As we all know, avocados are amazing. This fruit provides an intense amount of nutrition and is a great source of antioxidants. The ingredients in this amazing and yummy fruit protect your skin from the environmental damage that leads to fine lines, wrinkles and other visible signs of aging! Guess what, it also contains vitamin C and vitamin E. One of the main avocado skin benefits comes from their high oleic acid content. This monounsaturated fatty acid maintains moisture in the epidermal layer of your skin, helping to make it soft and hydrated.
Seaweed may be the bane of your existence during post-beach showers, at least – it’s for me. However, as a cosmetic ingredient, it can be surprisingly beneficial for your skin. Apart from its ultra-hydrating qualities, seaweed boasts anti-aging and anti-inflammatory benefits. It’s also packed with amino acids, vitamins, and minerals, and its anti-bacterial properties make it an ideal ingredient for fighting everything from acne to signs of aging.
Since I’ve been through this whole bunch before, the only sad part of this bundle is the fact that they don’t sell the newest variants on eBay for the same cheap price! I mean, I would love to try out rose, cherry blossom, peach and the lavender variant but I can’t seem to figure out where to get my hands on these! If you guys know, please let me know!
But for real, remember – eating this stuff does more for your skin than applying it as a mask!
Ps, sorry for the lack of images in this post- I’ll take pictures right before I start using them!
