    I love my SKII mask! I use it on my 8 hour flights when I travel. I look liek a derp but I don’t care and it’s so comfortable. And I use this mask once a week when I read or when I’m in the bath. It’s my weekly luxury and I really have to admit my skin is much better from it.

      I used to use the SKII masks too! :D I love using sheet masks on flights. Cabin air is soooo dry!

    i love sheet masks! In fact, sometimes i use them 3-4x a week coz they are just so conveniently addictive! but of course most of the masks i have are the korean brands or taiwan, so it is not that damaging to use it many times a week

      Do you mean damaging to your pocket? ;) I read somewhere once that these masks have high alcohol content that can be bad for the skin. But the Koreans and Japanese adore them and they have great skin so maybe its just a fallacy :D

    i dun use sheet mask, the scent is very strong for eventhough Origins (which always hv good scent for their products) but not in their sheet mask.
    i think it should work better than normal cream mask cox the price is much more expensive than cream mask…haha…

      It depends on the brand of the masks actually. The Hada Labo one has no scent that I can detect.

    I use masks for that instant boost, there are days the skin around my face gets dry and having a sheet mask is the easiest way to moisturize it ! :) It works for me!

      Ooh yeah! I love using it after a hot day out especially. It cools the skin down a treat!

    I’m sort of in two minds. I think that sheet masks are definitely very convenient and hygienic (I’m horrifyingly lazy when it comes to masks and a tube can lie around for AGES). At the same time, I feel guilty at the amount of resources used up and being discarded when sheet masks are used …

      Yup that is a consideration for the environment. Might that be why its mostly available in Asian brands which do tend to go overboard on their packaging? Fewer Western brands have sheet masks although i do notice them getting more and more popular there too.

    Ooohh!! Masks are my love!! Currently addicted to super moisturizing masks!! :D

    But yeah, I agree that one has to be diligent to see any long lasting effects! At least twice a week for me!! I just wish they are cheaper (the ones i like anyway)!! :D I also pack a few in my luggage whenever I travel! :D

    My favourite masks? Definitely the Neutrogena ones! I also love Hada Labo (boo for alcohol in it though) and the My Beauty Diary luxury ones! :D

    I like sheet mask.. =) My favourite brands is FaceQ for now.. I find that beauty diary is not working for me.. Cosway SPA mask also work well for me..

      November 24, 2010

      Interesting, other than Beauty Diary I didn’t recognise the other two! There are so many brands out there.

        November 25, 2010

        FaceQ is from the same company for my beauty diary. It’s definitely better than MBD for me, cos it fix even well on your face. And the mask is thin… essence is a lot.. smell good.. moist enough..

    I love sheet masks!!! I abandon all my tube and cream mask now..except for the clay/mud mask. I love FaceQ and Neutrogena mask, it works effectively for me.

    • ParisB
      November 24, 2010

      Haha…. I don’t abandon the others. Not yet anyway. I find there is a slight difference in how they work from sheet masks :)

      Yup! Its not so noticable but regular use can put a big dent in the wallet! This is why I don’t use them that often as I alternate them with other cream masks.

    I love the sheet masks too! It’s rather hassle free. All you need to do is just plonk it onto your face and you can just lie down and chill. That said, any whitening sheet mask for recommendation? hehe

      I don’t really have a recommendation sorry! Perhaps someone can help? I like to travel with sheet masks simply because of the convenience.

    I had one on last night and the feeling was oh so relaxing. I’ve been using SkinVitals sheet masks (I don’t know if they’re available in Malaysia) and they’re amazing. Going to take up on Legeeque’s suggestion and put on one my 8 hour flight when I fly to M’sia in January. Who cares if you look stupid, the skin will thank you for it :P

      It’ll be at night, and you can snooze so you don’t have to notice anyone staring… unless its a kid who starts screaming from fright ;) But planes are a great place to use a mask because cabin air is horrible. I’m not sure if I have seen SkinVitals. The name sounds familiar somehow.

    Once I’ve started using sheet masks, there’s no going back! I’m already lazy enough when it comes to skin care, so sheet masks are so convenient! I tried using a cream mask a few nights ago and was apalled at how troublesome it was to get rid of it.

    I’m super kiasu with my masks, so I always leave sheet masks on until they’re 80% dry (20 – 30 minutes), then rub the remaining essence all over my neck and chest. I do hope the reverse osmosis thing isnt true :(

      Well I hope it isn’t true either! But ever since I was told, I try not to leave them on too long. Maybe up till 60-70% dry.

    hey! just convenient i just post up similar post as yours! i loveeee sheet mask. i personally feel it works for me as it helps to maintain the smoothness of my skin. hehe. As of now, the only brand that works for me is the essence sheet mask from Dodoclub. I bought mine from singapore. SGD3 only and they work awesome for my oily combo skin.

      Great to know you found a mask that works for you :D I haven’t come across that one but there are tons in the market – couldn’t keep track of all the brands out there.

    Recently tried nivea aqua mask coz’ my skin was parched (lack of water but not flak or dry) and it was on sales. Finds it hydrating enough. Also like Tony moly vitamin mask which my friend got for me in Korea. Finds it pretty good too to calm down redness. My one love is however not a sheet mask but my organic pharmacy’s honey jasmine mask which instantly revive my sometimes very dry skin (due to laziness to moisturise everyday).

    • ParisB
      November 24, 2010

      I’m facing a bit of dry skin issues too. I find sheet masks help address these problems best but I have to use them nearly everyday for a few days to get the best effect which can be pricey. I do serum and moisturize so I guess it’ll get back to normal soon :) Shall take a peep at Nivea next time I see an offer. ;)

    They boost your skin instantly especially when on date nights or other important events. I’m loving those from BeautyTalk and Neutrogena.

    I like sheet masks as they are so convenient. You can just put them on and relax. But I only use them on special occasions to get my skin that extra boost.

      Are sheet masks pricey where you are? They are quite affordable down here in Asia where we get loads of choices – not all good however.

      • gio
        November 24, 2010

        We don’t have many choices here actually as there aren’t many brands that sell sheet masks where I live. But they come at all prices, some are really cheap, other quite expensive. Although, even if you buy the cheapest ones, if you use them very often, you do end up spending quite a lot.

    I find that sheet masks are convenient and easy to carry around when travelling. Especially when you get sunburned or if I have been out in the sun the whole day, putting on a whitening mask at the end of the day prevents my skin from getting a tan (not forgetting sunblock during daytime of course!). i was really impressed with the whitening mask from For Beloved One and Neutrogena.

    I love sheet masks! I try to use them often, but I “forget” most of the time cause I’m lazy that way :P I put them on to relax and unwind, and for the instant benefits I get. Even though we’re not supposed to, I like to touch my face all the time right after. And you’re right, we need to use the same mask regularly to notice the difference. :)

        Yes, it does feel lovely! Your post inspired me to put on a Garnier Light Whitening Infusion Tissue Mask on tonight. Whew, what a mouthful! I remember you reviewing that mask before so I when I spotted it this year, I got it. Dumped it in the fridge ’til tonight :)

      That’s the most expensive one I’ve ever used. I’m sorta glad it didn’t work out for me thereafter ;)
