Shopping for sheet masks is like going to the candy store: You’ve got dozens of treats to choose from, countless goodies you want to try, and probably a handful you’ve got stashed in your fridge. After all, there is so much to love about them: They’re pumped with moisturizing ingredients, they target and treat an entire lineup of skin issues, and they just feel so good to wear at the end of a long day. Sheet mask hoarders, raise your hands!
Now, beauty experts and bloggers typically advise to wear a sheet mask once or twice a week—just to get a kick of hydration every now and then. But have you ever wondered what would happen if you wore one every day? We decided to take one for the team, and find out ourselves!
WHAT WE USED: THE ESFOLIO PEARL ESSENCE MASK
With the multitudes of masks on the market, picking one can be pretty overwhelming. For our 1-week test, we chose the Pure Skin Pearl Essence Mask Sheet for two simple reasons:
First, when it comes to sheet masks, Esfolio definitely has frontrunner formulas. Each of their selections is drenched with highly-concentrated, all-natural actives. Its material is soft, yet sturdy, and delivers ample levels of moisture into your skin. In our books, they get an A+!
Second, this particular sheet mask is known for its revitalizing powers. Soaked in pearl essence, it stimulates collagen production, repairs and renews damaged cells, and brightens the complexion. So, if you’ve got dull or fatigued skin, this should be your go-to treatment!
It’s also boosted with fruit extracts and ginseng root, which help nourish, detoxify, and soften the complexion. Seriously, we’ve found a product that pretty much does it all. And if you don’t believe us, check out the results, below!
THE 7-DAY TEST
Kat, 22, Dry Skin Type: “When I started this challenge, I was kind of hesitant at first because I wasn’t sure if the sheet mask will make my skin react in a bad way. This has happened in the past. I also thought that it would be a bit redundant and the results would plateau. I was really happy that that wasn’t the case and it even bettered my skin. I loved the Esfolio sheet mask and I thought it was such an affordable product. It was safe for my sensitive skin and it really helped with the dry patches on my face. I’ve been struggling with dry, tight skin ever since the weather got cooler and drier but now my skin has mostly balanced out.
It was very easy to incorporate the sheet mask in my skin care routine. I replaced my hydrating toner/essence with the mask just to cut a step from my already long routine. On the morning after my first sheet mask, my face felt softer and plumper. I wasn’t too shocked about that result because that was usually the case when I sheet masked in the past. However, what I did notice before was that the effects were temporary and my skin would go back to it’s old state. I think that because I sheet masked constantly, the effects really stuck. Everyday, my skin felt softer and looked brighter. The dry patches on my cheeks also disappeared. Even after the challenge, my skin still felt softer and my dry patches haven’t come back. I think if you need to reboot/refresh your skin, sheet masking for a week is worth doing.”
