From the first time I tried a face mask, I accepted that they would be a permanent part of my skincare. It was so easy. I'm still on the fence about toners. What do they even do? JK, I just wrote a review on a toner and explained their reason for existing.
But a sheet mask, it's like instant gratification. They are a relaxing way to end your day. Grab a cup of your favorite calming tea and add a sheet mask to your routine.
I tried The Face Shop's Sheep Character Mask. I have to say was pretty skeptical. It seemed too cutesy to be beneficial. There is no denying that there are just some sheet masks that just wet your face. I wondered if this was one of them. Ok, let's be honest here. The sheep is cute on the packet and not on our faces. My dog ran away from me.
When I opened the packet, the first thing I noticed was that there wasn't really any kind of scent to the product. I actually appreciated that. It's nice when a skincare product has a soothing scent but I'm so picky with scents (everything). In the realm of skincare, I rather the product have no scent than risk it being one I don't like. When I removed the folded sheet mask from its pouch, I noted that sheet mask was heavily saturated with a slippery, maybe even goopy, fluid. I've tried quite a bit of sheet masks, more than I should ever admit to, and this Sheep Mask was definitely ... goopey.
You're instructed to wear the mask for 10 minutes. When I removed the mask, all of the thick fluid was sitting on my face. I tried to massage it in but there was just too much of it. I removed the excess goop from my face. My skin was left feeling well hydrated. However, the results didn't last as long as I would've hoped for.
The Face Shop Character Masks are formulated with hyaluronic acid and glycerin making it a great skin prep mask. If you want your makeup to sit nicely on your skin, using this mask before your application will make that happen. I wouldn't say this mask is absolutely essential to add to your skin care routine, it is fun to try. Get a couple of different characters, invite your friends over, and just have at it! Wine would be the actual essential part of this gathering. Enjoy!
