The Face Shop | Sheet masks

Face Shop sheet masks

As you can tell from my previous post, I’ve been really liking sheet masks! But I wanted to try Asian brands because, lets be honest, they lead the market in skincare! Luckily, the new relocated Zion Market in San Diego has The Face Shop in the food court area! I can always see the wall of sheet masks from a distance whenever I’m buying boba drinks at Boba Bar & Desserts (just a few feet away). Anyways, I decided to stop in today and buy a couple masks…. Which turned into buying 5 haha.

They range from $2-$6 (or $10, I forgot) a mask, depending on the brand and what they’re supposed to do for your skin. I bought four $2 masks and one $3 mask; I just can’t justify paying $6 for only one mask!

The “real nature mask” brand is $2, which I’m hoping works well with my skin because I would definitely buy more! I’ll write out the description of each, in case you’re interested and/or have a Face Shop near you!

  • Aloe: a soothing & hydrating mask sheet containing aloe extract, which hydrates and soothes the skin, providing instant care to sensitive skin.
  • Rice: a brightening & complexion improvement mask sheet containing rice extract to smoothen and brighten dull and rough skin.
  • Acai berry: a firming mask sheet containing Acai berry extract to improve resilience and provide moisturized firmness to the skin.
  • Green tea: a hydrating & energizing mask sheet containing green tea extract to fill dry skin with refreshing and hydrating moisture.

And the last mask I bought is from the brand “cereal mask sheet”, I think. This one is $3.

  • Mung bean: cleans and smoothes skin. The benefits of mung beans – used to cleanse and clarify skin for ages. Mung beans are valued for their excellent cleansing and detoxifying properties which help resolve skin problems for a more beautiful complexion.

Hope these work! I’m excited to try them :D

Paper masks all day, every day!

Went to Walmart to kill some time & I noticed that Freeman Beauty had a bunch of new paper masks! They’re well known for their clay masks, peel-off masks, & scrubs, so it’s nice to see that they’ve branched out to paper masks. They’re each $1.37 and probably the cheapest paper masks you can get out there, I think… Correct me if I’m wrong. I’ve only tried the rose facial brightening one before & I think I like it! There were no adverse effects, so that’s a good sign. As far as brightening, I didn’t notice anything but I did only use it once. I don’t think any mask would show its benefits right away. I’ll write the description of each mask so you can get a feel for what each one is supposed to do.

Freeman Beauty masks

Rose facial brightening paper mask: serum-infused paper facial mask with rose extract illuminates dull skin. White tea and licorice help reduce age spots for more even-toned skin. Reveal a smoother surface with lactic and glycolic fruit acids. Perfect for dull skin.

Tea tree soothes breakout-stressed skin. Perfect for combination to oily skin. (The one I’m most excited to try!)

And, because I’ve been wanting to try this but never could find it until now, I picked up the Charcoal & Black Sugar facial polishing mask/scrubDescription: “Pollution…debris.. It’s a wonder skin can breathe! This unique mask and scrub works double time to detox skin. First, naturally purifying activated charcoal helps absorb oil and impurities without over-drying. Then, black sugar helps exfoliate away dulling skin cells for softness and clarity. Perfect for all skin types.”
