Glorious Face Masks

 Korean skin care has been getting some major traction in the beauty world lately so I though I would share with you some of the Korean sheet masks I have plus a few other face masks that I couldn’t live without.

Recently my mum and dad had a little trip to Singapore so of course I put my order in and this time I wanted to try some skincare considering how much makeup I bought when I was in Singapore.  So I asked mum to head to Etude House to pick up some of their sheets masks.  I had heard a lot about sheet masks and used a couple but after Lisa Eldridge raved about them I knew I had to try more.  These ones from Etude House come in large range for any skin concerns, I mainly focussed on hydrating and smoothing for my oily/combination skin.  I really wanted to concentrate on smoothing and hydrating my dry patches that I get in winter, they are the absolute bane of my existence.  I have a little selection in this photo and have already tried the pomegranate and olive ones, they really did hydrate and smooth my skin, my skin looked so fresh and supple.  To be honest these sheet masks look super freaky when they’re on your face, they are a white cotton sheet (hence the name) that just has cut outs for your eyes and mouth as I said super freaky!  But they work so I love them!

As well as the sheet masks my mum picked me up some eye masks, how cute are those little cucumber ones!  The first ones are Anti Dark Circle Eye Pads from Color Combos Skin – I have yet to try these but I’m very intrigued, I have some serious dark circles so if these work I’ll be in heaven!  The cute little cucumber ones are Cooling Cucumber Pads from Skin Lite – again I haven’t tried these but they’re so cute I don’t want to open them!  I’ve been flat chat with uni at the moment which means late nights and early morning so some cooling eye pads might be just what I need!

Moving away from the Korean skin care I thought I would share my other favourite face masks.  First up is one that is fairly new to be but that I fell in love with instantly!  It’s the Origins Overnight Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask – I got this one after I got back from India and my skin was in desperate need of moisture!  I use this after cleansing before I go to bed and then wake up with soft plumped and supple skin.  I tend to use this about 2-3 times a week depending how my skin is feeling, its just an absolute miracle worker.  I will definitely be repurchasing this one.  Next up is an absolute beauty world favourite its the Aesop Parsley Seed Clarifying Mask – This is absolute perfection in a tube, I don’t know how it does it but it smooths and clears my skin and someone shrinks my pores slightly!  Again I use this about 2 times a week and I often follow it up with either a sheet mask or the Origins mask to give my skin a real treat.

What are you favourite masks?  I’m still fairly new to the mask game so If you have any suggestion please let me know!
