Is there a better time of year to talk about masks than Halloween? Not that I need an excuse; if you’re a regular reader, you know about my undying love for masks of all kinds. I came across these sheet masks from major-league Korean brand Tony Moly recently, and didn’t think twice about about giving them a try.
I admit it, I’m a mask-aholic. Every time I see a new one, I at least think about trying it. I am not partial to high end or drugstore; I have favorites on both ends. And I have spoken before about my fondness for K-beauty products, so when I saw a few new masks from long-time company SkinFood (a brand that I haven’t tried), I thought I’d give them a whirl. The results were…well, just keep reading.
How incredibly hyped up has Korean skincare been in the past few years? I’m sure Korean women are laughing their heads off at the rest of the world; they’ve been using incredible products for years, and now suddenly everyone else is going wild for their long-time favorites. And while the market of options for American consumers continues to grow, I decided to dip my toe into the giant pool that is Korean skincare and grab a few sheet masks to try out. I am a moderate supporter of sheet masks; they have their positive sides, however I (being an old-school kind of girl) enjoy the satisfaction of spreading a nice creamy or mud-based mask on my face by hand, and waiting for it to work its magic. But for all you gals – and guys – out there who maybe don’t have the time to put into it, or just don’t want to deal with the mess, sheet masks could be your BFFs.
