Sephora Sheet Mask Haul

I was very lucky enough to travel with work to Barcelona and even luckier that a Sephora happened to be right next door to my hotel room. Hmmm lucky or deadly to my bank account... I've heard a lot of people rave about the Sephora Sheet Masks and I have to say, I'm very pro sheet mask. I find them a lot less messier than most face masks and sometimes even that little bit more hydrating!

Sephora Lotus Face Mask - This was the first face mask I picked up as I was immediately drawn in to the massive text saying 'Moisturizing' and 'Hydrating' on the packaging. This has mask is enriched with lotus flower extract which aims to locks in water my skin is just so dry at the moment and ultimately reduce signs of fatigue. This is actually the one face mask I've already used from this haul and I have to say I'm so pleasantly surprised! My skin felt smoothe, bouncy and radiant when I used it. I left it on for a little bit longer than 20 minutes, because there was just so much product in the packaging! It does have quite a strong scent to it, so if you aren't used to strong scents it's probably not the one for you, but I found it a calming and relaxing scent! 

Sephora Lavender Foot Mask - So I've never actually tried a foot mask before, and I have to say I'm totally intrigued. I really wanted to use this before my birthday, but I thought it may be better to keep it to when we get closer to Summer. Gross and totally TMI I have really dry feet *vom* so I really have to give them a lot of TLC which most of the time I can't be bothered with. I'm not sure how this  can alleviate signs of fatigue on your I don't think my feet look....'tired'. but anything that will nourish them I can get on board with. What I like about the idea of a foot mask, is that it's essentially a sock which means there's no mess and fuss!

Sephora Avocado Face Mask - Another mask that drew me in with the text 'nourishing' on the front of this, I'm very curious to see how nourishing avocado can be! This face mask is enriched with natural avocado for intense nutrition to repair sensitive skin and leave your face feeling smooth. As someone with sensitive skin, I'm intrigued to find out how it will relieve my sensitive areas usually my cheeks as face masks can irritate them!

I'm Real Skin Purifying Seaweeds Mask Sheet  - The I'm Real sheet masks were substantially cheaper than the Sephora ones so I decided to pick up three of them I gave one away to my friend to see how they would fair. You can actually buy these in the UK which I only just realised - so have popped a UK link in! Firstly I wanted to grab a face mask for when I have massive breakouts which hasn't been for a while fingers crossed.  This face mask aims to purify the skin due to the natural seaweed extracts in it. I have to say, I actually really hate seaweed...the smell of it, the taste of it and ESPECIALLY not that this is important to this description the feel of it when you're in the sea and it touches your foot. However, I thought I would give it a try so will keep you posted on Instastories when I use it!

I'm Real Radiance Tomato Mask Sheet - I'm actually very apprehensive about using this mask as it says that it will 'tighten' but also 'hydrate' skin in 20 minutes....Usually the words tighten and hydrate aren't what I would put together as I tend to like my face masks to leave my face feeling bouncy and more full rather than uncomfortable and tighten. However saying that, with tomato extract it aims to promote radiance and healthier looking skin which I am all down for now that I've reached the old age of 24 ;)

Let me know in the comments if you've tried any of the Sephora or I'm Real masks and what your favourite one is!

  4. I'm a sheet mask addict - I try to use one everyday (lol yes)! My fave ones are the Klairs and Mediheal ones, they work amazingly when my skin flares up. I'm actually not such a huge fan of Tony Moly as a brand but they have some cute stuff haha!
