I’ve never thrown my daughter a party. Okay, granted she’s only 3 years old but in the world where people shell out hundreds, invite dozens and go all out for their kid’s first birthday parties, I’m just so not there yet. I’d rather spend that money on annual photoshoots, extracurricular activities (my girl LOVES gymnastics and swimming) and shoot…I just don’t like a bunch of kids in my house. Yeah, I said it. Too many kids irritate me.
But I totally can’t wait for when EB is old enough to have a spa party. I will totally shine in this department. She’ll be old enough to help DIY the party, she’ll truly be invested in it and more importantly, we can do sheet masks!
I’m obsessed with sheet masks. I blogged about them years ago but now I am really getting into them. I love, love, LOVE them. So very common in Korean beauty skin routines, sheet masks are relatively new in the United States, but my Asian sisters have been rocking these for awhile. Each brand and sheet mask does its own thing but all sheet masks provide HYDRATION. This is really the name of the game. K-Beauty (short for Korean beauty) skincare lovers say that optimal hydration is key for combating aging skin. Traditional K-Beauty skincare routines can have as many as 12-steps.
Bruh. I don’t have time for that. But what I do have time for is the occasional sheet mask. Ideally, I’d love to use them daily, but I save my sheets for at least once a week. U.S. beauty brands have quickly picked up on the popularity of sheet masks and you can find them for as cheap as $1 per mask to $30 per mask. I’ve seen them for specific skin types (normal, oily, dry, sensitive, aging) and whether you’re conscious about ingredients and prefer natural ingredients or more conventional ingredients, there will be a sheet mask for you. Sephora is sheet mask meeca and I’ve put myself on a No Buy simply because I will hoard like a mad woman in that place.
Weeks ago, Beauteque sent me a fabulous set of sheet masks. If you aren’t familiar with them, get familiar ASAP. With a selection of sheet masks that will rival, uh, anyone, they provided me with a sample of their subscription service.
Check this. For as low as $15 a month, you can get as many as 8 sheet masks delivered to you. The beauty of this is, they have different categories to select from. For this sample, I selected the Asian Secrets Mask Set. How could I not?
I got slew of masks and the one that I HAD to drop out first? Well, obviously…
While more of a Hydro Gel mask than a sheet mask, I LOVE these things. The serum soaked mask literally sits on your skin and allows your skin to absorb all of the hydrating properties. If you aren’t familiar with sheet masks, know that you have to remove them from their packagings veryyyy carefully!
I mean, can you EVEN? How pretty is that? While not my favorite mask of the bunch (it moved around my face too much), it is indeed the most beautiful sheet mask that I’ve ever used.
Sexy, right? But after removing, I’m left with insanely hydrated skin that feels like it received a mini facial.
You know how people are like, “Oh, let me buy you a coffee.”
No girl. I don’t drink coffee. Just get me a sheet mask.
And that’s all there is to it. Browse Beauteque and let me know if you see anything interesting!
*FTC Disclosure: Beauteque provided me with samples of their sheet masks, however all others mentioned were purchased by me.

I love sheet masks! Now I really want to try the gold one!
Aren’t they wonderful? I can’t get enough of sheet masks!
Sheet masks are something I still haven’t gotten into.

Wait, how could you tease us with that snail mask?? I need to know…
Haha!! Will update you. Still haven’t tried that one yet.
Girl I love me some sheet masks! I haven’t had one of the ones that is in two pieces yet. I have a Korean one sitting under my TV that I want to use but save at the same time.
I let Cloe use the Freeman beauty Cucumber peel off mask because it doesn’t really do anything except hydrate.

I love you so much. Seriously had me chuckling at not liking too many kids in your house. But honestly, does anyone? They’re cute and all, but its like a herd of goats free indoors. Pass.
On topic though, I love the Innisfree sheet masks. I got a packet of 15 on Amazon for like a $1 each. Currently typing this with an aloe one on my face.
