These Fast-Acting Non-Korean Sheet Masks Give Instant Results
#1: Kiehl’s Instant Renewal Concentrate Mask, $52 for a box of four
A unique hydrogel-biocellulose sheet mask hybrid that is infused with an exotic blend of three plant-derived cold-pressed oils such as Copaiba Resin to soothe and soften skin, Pracaxi to moisturise and Andiroba to strengthen skin’s protective barrier. These work together to immediately hydrate skin for a plump and soft complexion.
#2: Elizabeth Arden Superstart Probiotic Boost Skin Renewal Biocellulose Mask, $67 for a box of four
This delivers double the probiotic power of the brand’s Superstart Skin Renewal Booster to support skin’s natural defenses and improve its resilience. The bio-cellulose sheet (made using fermented coconut) infuses skin with a concentrated formula that includes hyaluronic acid and a probiotic blend to support its natural renewal process for radiant, smooth and healthy-looking skin in just one treatment.
#3: 111Skin Bio Cellulose Facial Treatment Mask, $170 for a box of five
The gel-like make-up of the mask will instantly cool and regulate skin’s temperature. The fibres are reportedly 500 times finer than tissue masks, which allows it to lock moisture into your skin and enables a deeper penetration of three key ingredients: liquorice root extract to brighten, silk amino acids to condition and centella asiatica to soothe and stimulate collagen production.
#4: For Beloved Girl Extreme Moisture Mineral Cloud-Silk Mask, $16 for three pieces, Sephora
This mask contains hyaluronic acid and moisture-replenishing ingredients to soothe fatigue, tired skin and restore overall balance. The result: a plumper, softer and smoother complexion.
#5: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery PowerFoil Mask, $120 for a box for four
This “dual-matrix” foil-backed mask helps to reset the look of tired, stressed skin. The inner sheet repairs and contains anti-pollution ingredients, while the outer matrix drives the potent formula into skin using a PowerFoil Technology that reportedly offers 25 times faster penetration for an immediate glow and healthier-looking skin. Hyaluronic acid instantly plumps up complexions. In just ten minutes, skin is more radiant, translucent and fresher.
#6: Lancome Advanced Genifique Hydrogel Melting Mask, $125 for a box of seven
Once applied onto your face, this heat-sensitive hydrogel mesh melts into a liquid releasing potent active ingredients that penetrates deep into the epidermis. The result? Skin feels smoother and more radiant. It is also said to have the same amount of probiotic extract as a bottle of the brand’s Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate.
#7: La Mer The Hydrating Facial, $500 for a set of six
Made with a special blend of dark green algae derived from countries like Japan and USA, this mask infuses the skin with intense hydration, while marine plant algae help to diminish visible signs of ageing and dark spots to give you a clear, more even complexion. It also contains cellular lipids and plant extracts found in melon and avocado to improve skin’s texture.
#8: SK-II Facial Treatment Mask, $127 for 6 pieces
The mask comes generously soaked in the brand’s popular Pitera yeast extract, as well as a mix of vitamins, minerals and amino acids. It helps to effectively hydrate one’s complexion, boost radiance and improve clarity.
