I am stepping outside of my comfort zone today. I had zero intentions of sharing this as a post considering the mummified look of a sheet mask. But, you know what? I loved how my face felt so much afterwards that I wanted to praise its glory to all my friends. Sometimes things are worth stepping outside of your comfort zone if it means you can help others out.
Fall is here and while the temperatures have been relatively warm for a Michigan fall, my skin is still paying the price for the dropping temps in the night to the extreme highs during the day. This time of year, thanks to my sensitive skin, I get itchy. Dry skin on my body isn’t too much of a battle. I find that Sensitive Skin Lubriderm or Aveeno Oatmeal Lotion works just fine, so I end up buying what’s on sale.
Problem is, I can’t use either of these for my face. I started using Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream on my face during the day and Ponds Rejuveness AntiWrinkle Cream on my face during the night. So far, this has worked out well; until yesterday.
I don’t know what happened but it was one of those days that no moisture cream was going to cut it. My face was flaking and it was getting in my hair making it look like it was snowing out. Gross. Okay, okay, more like I had a serious case of dandruff. My face was itching and the more I rubbed it, the more I felt like it was burning. I wasn’t having an allergic reaction to anything, it was just severely dry.
Not knowing what to do, I started to putter around the bathroom looking all the lotions and potions I had collected wondering which one to try next. Then I remembered that one of my besties gave me a few sheet masks for my birthday. I am a little late to the sheet mask party. Heck, I am a little late to any mask party.
I rifled through my stash looking for one that might have some level of moisturizing instead of detoxing or pore reducing as I felt both of these would probably dry it out even more.
And then I saw this gem.
I tore open the package and immediately smelled that familiar pink bottle baby lotions smell. I used to use it when I was a teen because at the time there were very few options for sensitive skin. As I got older I appreciated that smell because all of my friends were having kids. It brings back a lot of happy memories.
I pulled out the mask and unfolded it. My bestie likes to send funny SnapChats (NevermoreLane) of herself when she has her masks on. So I went ahead and snapped a photo for her entertainment. I laughed so hard, I sent it to a few more friends with the caption “mummified.”
I left the mask on for the required 20-30 min. Mine was closer to the 30 min mark because I wanted to be sure I got all the benefits I could from it. I pulled the mask off, tossed it in the trash and touched my face. It felt amazingly soft.
The next morning, it was still soft and I did not see any redness or flakes. Best part is the moisturizing benefits did not cause any breakouts. I washed my face with a gentle cleanser, still soft. I’m hooked. I also noticed it helped quite a bit with my fine lines. I am consistently told I don’t look 41. I would like to hang on to that as long as possible. 😉
I have a feeling I’ll be stocking up on these bad boys to keep them handy for the rest of fall and then on to winter.

That is a lovely look! Bwahaha. Seriously though. I’ve never tried one of these before, but I keep hearing people talk about them. I’ll have to give it a try.
Right! Isn’t it pretty??? hahah

I’ve actually never heard of a sheet mask before. I love the idea though. I’ve never been a fan of having to apply and then wash off regular masks.
I think that is why I never have done them. I am lazy enough about washing my face every night before going to bed. LOL

I have SUPER sensitive skin, so anything that can offer a bit of hydration without irritation is appreciated. I would totally give a sheet mask a try.
I am for sure ordering some of these! I am in love.
Lisa Favre says
My skin is definitely considered sensitive. I grew up with eczema so I’ve always had to be careful with what I put on it. This mask looks fantastic and definitely something I’m willing to try.
Reesa Lewandowski says
I really have wondered about these!!! I want to just give one a try!
Liz Mays says
I’m new to sheet masks but I’d definitely want mine to be gentle on my sensitive skin. It’s awesome that you found one that worked so well without any dryness!
Oh, you brave soul! I’m sure my dogs would be scared silly if I put one of these on lol. I’d definitely love to give them a try in the privacy of my bedroom though. They sound like they do an amazing job!

I’ve never tried it I think this is one of the best sheet mask. Must try it.
I need to try one of these. Ever since baby, my skin on my poor face could use some pampering!
Melissa @ The Staten Island family says

Kita Bryant says
Girl, this happens to me often! I feel like my lotion is worthless! This looks like a mask I will need to try.
Chavonne H says
I like that it has aloe extract and is hydrating, my skin is so dry and flaky so I hope this would help me.
Amanda Love says
Face masks are a great way to pamper yourself without leaving the house. But with so many in the market, it’s tough to choose which one to try first! I’m glad you’re happy with the results!
My mom has skin that will sometimes flake, especially in the winter. It’s good to have products online that help!
I definitely need, deserve to be pampered and this is a great way to do it!

I’ve never tried a sheet mask, but after this review I’m willing to give one a go. I love your honesty and thank you for sharing this. I legit probably would have never tried one if I hadn’t read this blog.
