Korean Skincare Introductory Guide Part 2

  Korean Sheet Masks: When your face needs a quick pick me up!

I’m sure you’ve seen them all over social media as every Korean skincare brand has a range of sheet masks. These masks target all concerns as they contain an ampoule (highly concentrated serum) of ingredients such as glyercin, ginseng, collagen, aloe, snail secretion, bird’s nest ampoule just to name a few.

Since I have moved to Hong Kong, I’ve tried over a dozen of different masks and what I have realized is that these masks can be amazing but their effect is very temporary. If you really want to target certain concerns such as acne, fine lines and wrinkles you would need a product to add into your daily skincare routine and need to watch the changes over several weeks.

That is why when looking for a sheet mask, the most beneficial ones are the ones for moisturizing as they instantly solve the problem of dull, dry and tired skin which will help keep your skin looking great for a night out or even when travelling.

The two biggest sellers in Hong Kong currently, which I can’t live without are (linked):

Papa Recipe Bombee Honey Mask
N.M.F Aquaring Ampoule Mask

What is amazing about the masks is that they contain so many moisturizing ingredients such as honey, glycerin, sodium hyaluronate that provide instant moisture to the face and are suitable for all skin types.

They are also so easy to carry around and to use as you just apply it on a clean, dry face, leave it for 20 minutes and then remove and rub in whatever is left on your face (don’t wash it off). Recommended use would be twice a week.

They are very affordable and available at Sasa, Bonjour, Watsons, Mannings or any Chinese pharmacy in packs of 10 ( so get a pack and share with friends). Also for people not living in Hong Kong, it is available on Amazon which is the linked above.
