With the weather becoming colder, I thought it would only be appropriate to talk about a skin soothing and moisturising sheet mask which all skin types can benefit from to beat the effects of Winter weather conditions on skin.
In the late afternoons or evenings, I usually go for a walk around my local area – this of course gets in some exercise each day, but waking around during points in a day when it’s coldest and most windy doesn’t do wonders for my sensitive skin. So yesterday, I reached for one of the Be Plain Bamboo Healing Sheet Masks which I had only used once before.
It is advertised as primarily being beneficial for sensitive dry~combination skin types, although upon observation of its ingredients I can see how it can suit the majority of skin types. Essentially, this is a skin thirst quenching sheet mask which in the short-term aims to relieve skin irritations, whilst in the long-term help improve the health of skin so that it can protect itself against natural elements (if used frequently).
The sheet itself is made from 100% Natural Bamboo Cellulose. Be Plain is a cruelty-free, paraben free, clean beauty brand.
🌿 82% Bambusa Vulgaris (bamboo) Water
🌿 High Glycerin and Glycol content to restore dewiness to dull or dry skin types.
🌿 Panthenol & Hylauronic Acid to retain moisture at the surface of skin and deep within.
🌿 Allantoin for its soothing and healing properties. It can contribute to the formation of a strengthened skin barrier.
Yay or nay?
It’s a absolute yes! I honestly can’t fault this mask and regret not trying it sooner despite knowing of its existence. It does supply a sufficient amount of moisture – enough to leave residue but your skin will not be left too saturated upon removal of the mask.
Fit: 8/10, it’s a cellulose mask so it blankets skin and the unique contours of your face without lifting or shifting too much. The lower half of the mask as per usual for me personally was a little askew above the lip and jawline, although because the sheet is fairly thin I was able to overlap the excess sheet flatly enough without much fuss.
Price point: 7/10, they aren’t easy to purchase individually with many online retailers who ship internationally selling them in packs of 5. A multi-pack will set you back $15~$20 on average. If I have remembered correctly they cost around 3,000₩ ($2.77/£2.09) per sheet mask in Korea. Multi-packs are available at OliveYoung Global, Jolse and some Amazon websites (Amazon UK not included).
Impact: 8/10, it goes without saying that sheet masks like this one need to be used at least twice per week to notice long-lasting effects on improving the health of the skin barrier. The noticeable impact of these masks when used just once is a surge of hydration to outer or inner dry skin and reduce redness and irritation to sensitive skin types. The transparent essence has a minimal tacky but runny consistency which acts similarly to diluted aloe vera gel; meaning this mask feels extra soothing when placed in a refrigerator for a short frame of time.
Repurchase?: Yes, and I’ll say you can buy and comfortably use this mask any time of year.
Overall rating: A strong 8.5/10 👍
