Beauty Unmasked: Face Mask Recommendations For Every Need

From fresh to extra glowy

Forget the diamonds ladies, we now have a new best friend that’s also small and handy but doesn't cost an arm and a leg — face masks!

These beauty sheets, whose popularity seemed like a gift from our Korean sisters, are instant lifesavers especially if you spent the evening having more drinks than you intended or binging on the “Somebody Feed Phil” series on Netflix (which basically got you so hungry you couldn’t sleep!). Face masks are especially useful to girls who are too lazy busy to properly wash, tone and moisturise.

These “instant facials” are an instant pick-me-up and could do wonders to skin that’s been exposed from harmful elements both chemical and natural. Not only that, but face masks also make it easier for one to use makeup, making them the perfect primer which delicious effects last for days. 

But with all the choices that we have in beauty bars, salons, health and beauty stores and favourite online shopping portals, one is bound to be confused as to what face mask we should truly choose. Well, we’re here to make things easier for you ladies. Ready for a home facial? Try out these beauty sheets.
