REVIEW: St. Ives Sheet Mask

I’ve been seeing sheet masks pop up lately in the beauty world, and I’ve been very intrigued, to say the least.

I love giving my skin a bit a TLC with a face mask every now and then. You can imagine how excited I was when I received an Influenster Vox Box filled with a few lovely and complimentary St. Ives Sheet Mask.

 

St Ives Sheet Mask Facial

What’s a Sheet Mask?

A sheet mask is exactly what you would imagine it would be. It is a thin paper-like material soaked in a serum of some kind. It includes cut outs for your eyes, nose, and mouth. So, all you have to do is position the mask on your face and then let it work its magic. It is definitely a less messy alternative to traditional mask. My only warning would be to apply the sheet mask over a bathroom sink or somewhere that you don’t mind getting wet. Sometimes the masks tend to drip. As a first-timer, I was a little surprised that the mask was swimming in a liquid in the packet (there was a small amount of liquid left over in the packet once I took out the mask). Application was really easy, too! Don’t worry about it being perfectly positioned – just make sure you can breathe, see and talk if you need to. Pretty easy, right?

I’ll never pass up an opportunity to glow.

If your skin has been looking really dull, this is the perfect sheet masks! The days leading up to me using this mask was stressful, to say the least. Between long trainings, finishing up my midterms and just balancing life, my skin was struggling. Stress ALWAYS shows and the St. Ives Glowing Sheet Mask definitely brought back the glow after a long week. The primary ingredient in this mask is apricot, a staple ingredient that St. Ives is known for. This mask had a bit of a slimy feel to it, compared to the others that were more like water. Once I removed the mask, I saw an immediate difference. My skin looked like new!

This was the first sheet mask I tried out of the trio. During the whirlwind of getting ready to move to another state, I noticed the hecticness of everything was taking a toll on my skin. Talk about the perfect time to try the St. Ives Revitalizing Sheet Mask to give my skin a much needed pick me up.

Once I removed the sheet mask and the skin absorbed the residual serum, I saw a difference! My skin had a nice glow, felt really soft and moisturized. I have oily skin, so I love products that hydrate and moisturize my skin without being greasy or making my skin even oilier. This sheet mask lives up to its name and had my skin looking refreshed and revitalized.

Oatmeal

A soothing experience for soft skin.

I tried this mask out after moving to another state. You can imagine the amount of stress I was under having to pack up and move my entire life more than 1000 miles away in a matter of two to three weeks. Once I was settled, I knew my skin needed a little bit of love, so I opted for the St. Ives Soothing sheet mask. This mask uses 100% natural oatmeal extracts. It has a very light fragrance, but in my opinion, it was a fragrance comparable to other oatmeal cleansers or masks I have used in the past. I won’t say I noticed a major difference in the results after, but it was a refreshing boost to my skin (compared to my normal skin routine).
