10 Sheet Masks For Your Next DIY Facial

You'll love these sheets.


(SPOT.ph) If you're a skincare junkie, you probably have a growing stash of face masks in your mini-fridge. We can't blame you—they've become a beauty staple, thanks to their convenience and affordability. They’re soaked in moisturizing ingredients, cheaper than getting a spa facial, easy to use, and they give your skin a supple glow. Are you a sheet-mask newbie? Here are 10 we recommend.




Animal Masks (P99) from Purederm

These animal-themed sheet masks from Purederm are begging to be Instagrammed. They come in four cute variants—panda and pig for whitening, seal and fox for brightening. No Snapchat or Insta filters needed. Just choose your spirit animal, unfold, align the sheet on your face, take a few pics to show your followers, and let it do its job for the next 10 to 15 minutes. If you’re not into the animal design, you can always go for their regular essence masks.

The Blacks Essential Sheet Mask (P150) from Banila Co.

We love the young, millennial packaging of Banila Co.’s makeup and skincare products. When it comes to their masks, we have our radar on The Blacks Essential Sheet Mask, because it contains the “it” ingredient, charcoal. Don’t worry; it’s not the scary type of charcoal blackhead mask that practically peels off your entire face when removed. Remember: Sheet masks are much safer than peel-off masks, and these are definitely on the safe side. Variants to choose from: black bamboo for hydration, volcano ash for pore care, and blackberry for sensitive skin.




Kracie Hadabisei All-In-1 Face Mask (P895/42 sheets) from Beauty Bar

Don’t be intimidated by the price. This Japanese mask set is actually a steal because each sheet boils down to just about P21 each. It’s best for beauty junkies who use sheet masks nightly. It contains moisturizing ingredients like flower and fruit extracts, collagen, and royal jelly that are safe for daily use. Because you have to open and reseal the package every time you need a sheet, it’s best to keep this in the fridge to prolong its lifespan. Beauty tip: Chilling the sheet also supercharges your skin upon application.




Hydrogel Mask – Bride of Korea (P298) from Tony Moly

South Korean beauty brand Tony Moly has dozens of facial masks to choose from, but here’s one we dare you to take to your next sparty—the Bride of Korea. The packaging features a Gaksital, a traditional Korean bridal mask, so prepare to look just like a Korean bride as soon as you apply the plastic sheet on your face. Borderline creepy? Yes, but it will help you fulfill your K-Drama fantasies, on top of hydrating your face with the mask’s gel formula. It’s more luxurious and pricier than Tony Moly’s P78-masks, and is meant to be left on your face for 30 to 40 minutes instead of the usual 10.




White Lucent Power Brightening Mask (P3,200/six sheets) from Shiseido

At around P530 per sheet, this is one of the most expensive masks out there—but trust us when we say it's totally worth the splurge. Fans swear by its powers because it’s saturated with a generous amount of skin-brightening ingredients. It’s so popular with its moneyed fan base that it’s almost always out of stock and when they do re-stock, they sell out faster than you can say, “Shiseido!” We found a way around it, though: Just leave your number with the store manager and they will text you as soon as they restock.




Therapy Air Snail Mask (P78) from Etude House

Etude House’s new collection of sheet masks are called Therapy Air. Each sheet is only 0.2-millimeter thick—thinner than standard mask sheets. If you want something that feels light and airy on your face, this is worth a try. As for the variant, we suggest the snail mask, which is—you guessed it—extracted from the slime of creepy crawlies. Snail slime is actually a coveted ingredient for facial care in Thailand and Korea. Some of their spas even let live snails crawl on your face as part of their luxury skincare treatment. This is because snail secretion actually has collagen-rich hyaluronic acid which smoothens fine lines and wrinkles while taking care of acne scars, burns, and even stretchmarks. We know, you're sold!




Real Nature Mask (P65) from The Face Shop

With K-Drama stars as their endorsers, The Face Shop has become a favorite for Korean beauty finds. One of their bestsellers is the Real Nature Face Mask, which comes in several fruit- and plant-based variants. If you have a bigger budget, try their Character Masks, P150 each and The Solution Mask Sheet, P150 each, for your anti-aging needs.




Jelly Fish Mask (P138) from Water Angel

Each variant from Water Angel's sheet masks features exotic ingredients, like jellyfish extracts, bird’s nest, snake peptides, and bee venom. We have our eyes on the jellyfish mask because it has a highly moisturizing, pore-tightening effect, and is packed with black charcoal to absorb toxins. Don’t worry—it doesn’t sting like a jellyfish at all!

Sheet Masks (P78 to P228/each) from Leaders

The challenge lies in choosing a sheet mask from Leaders’ whopping 50+ variants. First, determine which skin issue you’d like to address—like acne, wrinkles, and dryness. Then figure out your skin type—normal, dry, oily, sensitive, or combination. Finally, browse through their galleries on their website and Facebook page to figure out which one suits your skin type and concern. If you’re too lazy or overwhelmed, we suggest you start with the Coconut Bio Mask (P148). It comes in four sub-variants—blueberry for rough skin, tomato for aging skin, broccoli for oily to sensitive skin, and orange for dull, uneven skin.

Flower Fusion Sheet Mask (P150) from Origins

American brand Origins finally joined the sheet-mask craze when they launched their Flower Fusion collection this year. The sheets are 100% recycled and made of natural bamboo, while the mask extracts are enriched with 100% natural essential oils and sustainably sourced flower wax. Choose from six floral variants—violet, lavender, raspberry, jasmine, orange, and rose.
