Sheet Mask Sunday!

Hey guys! I know last week I posted a sheet mask Saturday, but this week we’re doing it on Sunday!

I am going to do a quick review of two different sheet masks I used this week. The first sheet mask was the Biobelle #staygorgeous sheet mask and the second sheet mask was the Tonymoly I’m Real Red Wine Mask Sheet Pore Care (that is all the words on the sheet mask guys!).  I used these masks to fit in with the theme of a #maskmadness challenge on Instagram from @maskaddict and @mapletreeblog.  The Biobelle mask was for the colorful day, and the Tonymoly mask was for the purple day.  I didn’t do all the days of this challenge by any means, but I thought it was a fun challenge to inspire people to use their sheet masks. I know that a lot of people have no problem with this, but for me it can be somewhat difficult to use my sheet masks.  I’m pretty sure my husband thinks sheet masks (really masks in general) are/look ridiculous, so I’m usually using them when he is occupied with other things.  Right now the other thing is his new Zelda video game. If you already follow me on Instagram I did post there about these masks, and thanks for following me!

First off this week was the Biobelle mask.  I got this in an Ipsy bag I purchased and thought the packaging really delivered in the cuteness factor.  I loved the stripes and flowers, and really wanted to like this mask.  I started by reading the instructions of course, and was interested to see that it said to rinse after taking the mask off.  This is the first sheet mask I’ve used to say this.  I just went to the website to look at this mask, and saw that it is supposed to prepare the skin for a “flawless makeup application”, so I suppose in that case I might want to rinse off any residue? Anyway, the other claims listed are that “Vitamin E improves the skin’s ability to fight off free radicals, helping to protect against environmental aggressors that can lead to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Almond oil softens & moisturizes, leaving your skin smooth and glowing.” So some pretty high claims to live up to in my book.  Unfortunately this mask did not live up to those claims.  The fit of this mask was wonderful for me, but afterward my skin felt slightly sticky.  Upon rinsing my skin looked flat and not glowing or moisturized.  Also, I had a sensitive area on the side of my nose/under my nostril that still hasn’t really cleared up completely.  I applied moisturizer after rinsing this off, and I applied more than usual as my skin really soaked it up.  Overall, I wouldn’t repurchase this mask.

Next up was the Tonymoly mask.  This is the second Tonymoly mask I’ve used, and I did enjoy the other one.  This one is like normal sheet masks where I don’t have to rinse after, yay! For claims I went to the Ulta website and found that it “is formulated with red wine extract to reduce the appearance of enlarged pores while tightening and purifying skin, giving you a healthier looking complexion in as little as 20 minutes.” Cool.  Putting this on it definitely had a pretty strong smell… I guess like wine? And the fit was not great.  There were a bunch of slits that truly just made it harder to fit to my face… Oh well.  I did not keep track of how long I wore this for, but I think it was closer to 30 minutes than 20 minutes. And OH MY GOSH GUYS! This really did reduce the appearance of my pores! A++! Definitely planning to buy more of these! Right now I see a pack of 10 on Amazon for $12.96 so I’m definitely down for that! I’m not sure if my skin is tighter, more purified, or healthier looking, but I am pleased with smaller pore appearance so that’s all good for me!
