Need a travel-friendly face mask to toss in your purse, backpack, or suitcase? Sounds like you need a sheet mask or two. Sheet masks, popular in Korean beauty, are simply face-shaped fabrics soaked in facial serum. All you need to do is position the mask on your face, wait twenty minutes, and take it off! Enjoy glowing skin without having to rinse anything off. Depending on the product, sheet masks may contain moisturizing, brightening, or anti-aging ingredients. But it’s important to check the ingredients as some face masks contain artificial and questionable ingredients that you may not want on your skin. Fortunately, Thrive Market offers petroleum-free, paraben-free, and phthalate-free sheet masks for all skin types—so you can nourish, restore, and rejuvenate your delicate skin.
Sheet Masks vs. Face Mask Creams
Sheet masks serve the same purpose as cream masks (improving your skin!), but there are a few differences worth noting.
Unlike face mask cream, sheet masks:
- Come prepackaged for easy application
- Retain ingredients in the fabric to minimize evaporation of active compounds
- Feature serum (not cream) that deeply penetrates skin
- Do not require rinsing after application
Bottom line? Both sheet masks and face mask cream revive skin, but sheet masks offer an additional level of convenience, making them great for travel.
