Why hasn’t the Asian rage of moisture sheet face and eye mask caught on in the US? It’s so standard for an Asian girl in any Asian country (Japan, Korea, China, Etc…) to walk down to her local drugstore and pick up some moisture masks for a few dollars, take them home, and spoil herself with a cooling, refreshing, moisturizing mask!
We have nothing like this in the US.
We are a deprived and hungry nation full of rabid woman that want to indulge in a simple sheet moisture mask but are unable to get any, anywhere (aside from the occasional Asian drugstore or market).
It saddens me that we have an array of all the wrong products in drugstores right now. Nothing comes close to what you can locate in drugstores in any Asian country.
Ok, ok so maybe it was a bit dramatic to say we are deprived..maybe I should re-word and say we have a few sheet masks available but they are extremely high end and costly as hell. Sheet masks are available for mere pennies abroad and seriously I can’t understand why it’s never caught on here in the States! The same goes for Cleaning Oil! Knock, Knock, hello beauty world it’s your wake up call calling! Get with the bloody program!
Now that I’ve ranted about our lack of good product I’ll go on with my review and say for 523 yen I can get 5 sheets of of Lifecella Eye Masks. That’s a deal and a half my friends.
I’ve used sheet eye masks before but I’ve always wanted to try the Lifecella ones and I’m happy to have gotten my hands on some that a lovely friend sent over from Japan recently.
These are pre-soaked sheets that are contoured perfectly to the eye fitting the complete under eye all the way up to the corner of the eye to reach any crows feet, fine lines, etc..you might be having in that area. I don’t personally, thank god, have crows feet yet however I can appreciate the added moisture to this area.
My eyes are dry as I’ve been known to rant about in prior posts and Lifecella are soaked in a nice cooling, moisturizing lotion that feels delightfully refreshing my under eyes. I can feel my eyes sigh in relief when I put these on.
I normally leave them on an hour or until they dry up and afterwards I simply pat the beautiful moisture left over from each sheet onto my eyes. These are super soaked so you’ll have plenty of cooling moisturize being sucked up.
The best part is these do a fab job of calming my puffy, tired eyes plus adding much needed moisture that my dry skin is hungry for. The masks or pads (whichever you prefer to call them) are large and as I mentioned they fit beautifully well under the eye extending outwards to cover the entire area.
I’ve used up an entire box this past week so I guess I’d best stock up on so more but honestly with the amount of eye masks and sheet masks available in Asia I might just go ahead and try different brand!
Life is all about variety!
What are your favorite sheet masks?
