My sokoglam sheet mask collection is growing! Here are my thoughts:
COLLAGEN ESSENTIAL LIFTING & FIRMING SHEET MASK – These masks are thicker than the standard sheet mask. They help plump out your skin with hydrolyzed collagen. A key ingredient is beta-glucan, it can help cool and relax the skin and reduce redness. Read more about beta-glucan here, written work reviewed by a dermatologist.
PACKH.D.P PHOTOREADY TIGHTENING CHARCOAL MASK – This black mask is the same brand as the collagen ones listed above. These masks contain pomegranate, charcoal, and adenosine extracted from yeast. The ingredient adenosine has anti-aging properties. Read more on adenosine here.
PIBUWANG MASK – REST (5PACK) – I’ve blogged about these vegan sheet masks before. Back then, I enjoyed using them but did not understand the hype. Recently my skin became irritated and the mask did effectively soothe my skin within two days and they minimized the appearance of discoloration from irritation.
BRIGHTENING SHEET MASK SET – I have not tried every mask in the set yet. I do love that the selection of masks can change with availability, this way it feels like a surprise when purchasing. This $19 set comes with five different sheet masks!
Sensitized Skin Products:
Three sensitized skincare products I’ve enjoyed using:
Art of Skincare Hale & Hush Soothe Essence – This is a life-changing essence, no exaggeration. It makes a major difference when my skin appears irritated out of the blue. I first discovered this product as a sample. I used it when my skin became irritated with bright red bumps on my cheek. By the next morning, the irritation disappeared entirely after using this essence. I purchased it as a full-size product for the first time. I’ve used it to soothe skin irritation and I’ve found that it always helps.
The key ingredients are birch tree extract, which has inflammatory properties, sunflower seed oil to hydrate, and mirabilis Jalapa extract to support the skin barrier and more.
Art of Skincare Quick Recovery Sample Masks – This $23 set is a great way to try out different masks and see how your skin reacts. The avocado mask is gentle and moisturizing, the pudding tapioca and rice mask can help smooth out skin texture, and the pumpkin mask cleanses pores and improves skin blood circulation. Check out the links to the individual masks below. My personal favorites are the Pudding Apeel Mask and Splendid Dirt Pumpkin Mask.
BODY – Anese Coffee Oil – This vegan oil formulated for the bum with watermelon oil and coffee beans. It can help reduce cellulite. It soothes dryness or irritation on your skin and leaves it feeling supple, most notably when used in combination with a scrub beforehand. ❤
🍫MANUKA HONEY & CHOCO BODY SOAP – This is a body soap formulated to reduce and clear up body acne. It is made of choco and honey. The smell is not strong or overly sweet. I have not had any new breakouts since I’ve begun using this soap, so far so good. The bar is super small though. $9.27
GREEN PEARLSATION TEA TREE CARE BODYSPRAY – I bought one tea tree body spray and I got the other one free! I’m using this to reduce breakouts on my chest and back. I get breakouts from sweat and tea tree oil can help combat this problem. I’ve noticed less irritation on my upper body since I’ve begun using this. $14.49
DEEP CLEAN PORE GLACIAL CLAY – I needed a clay mask and decided to try this out. It helps minimize pores and treat skin congestion. It’s a solid mask and does the job. I probably won’t repurchase though. I prefer Kiehl’s turmeric and cranberry seed mask. $20
RUB-A-DUB REFINING PEEL GEL – This is a mask you rub into your skin for about one minute to remove dead skin cells. It works because after using it my face products sank into my skin more effectively. $28
TRIPLE C LIGHTNING LIQUID – One of my go-to products to lighten up any pigmentation marks. I’ve already reviewed this before and I always recommend it. $27
TIME STOP COLLAGEN AMPOULE – I use this during the day as a serum under my makeup. I like it so far and I’ve noticed my makeup looks less flaky. I think it helps make your face look dewy and hydrated. $29 ❤
I’ve used this Black Sugar Mask since my undergraduate studies. Back then I purchased it because it’s inexpensive and it has enough product to last about 2.5 to 3 months of one semester (which typically lasts about 15-16 weeks). It’s a sugar face scrub that deeply cleanses the skin. I stopped using it for a while because I did not want to damage the skin on my face with abrasive scrubs that can cause tears or small cuts. However, after repurchasing, I can see the scrub is not too rough or damaging. I rinse it off slowly in circular motions with wet hands before thoroughly washing face with water. I recommend this product if you’re in the market for an inexpensive weekly exfoliant scrub.
I’ve also used this product for years. It’s the best, and the fact that it’s sold out at the moment speaks volumes. A little product goes a long way. It thoroughly cleans make-up and grime in a way that’s similar to the Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash, but for half the price.
Another favorite that I’ve used for more than three years ~ these lemon pads are both physical and chemical exfoliants. I love using it weekly or as needed to clear up any problems on my skin. It always works like a charm (notably in unison with Neutrogena – On-the-Spot Acne Treatment)
This mask leaves your face feeling clean but not stripped. It helps clear up and brighten the skin. This is a milder exfoliant alternative to the black sugar mask and equally effective.
