Sheet masks are the easiest and most universal. They work with pretty much all skin types and they are easy to use and enjoy. I often take them when I travel and use them on airplanes too.
They are great for…
Caring for your skin post surgery or procedure. I often use these after a peel or micro-needling. They are soothing and hydrating.

Treatment masks are a tricky category. So many of them are either ineffective or way way too harsh for my skin. I have only found one which I think it really fantastic. I used it in the run up to my wedding day and it really does create the most perfectly smooth skin. Don’t use it on the day of your wedding, instead use it about 5 days before (as lovely fine scrub is best on the day – I like the Fresh sugar polish).

Prepping for makeup application, the skin with be smoother with less residue dry skin after regular use of a treatment mask.
