A couple of months ago, I shared my favorite traditional masks for any skin ailment, but with everyone intrigued or obsessed with the sheet mask trend (is it even a trend anymore or are these here to stay?), I wanted to share my current favorite sheet masks. I have a feeling there may be a part 2 and 3 of these to come, so I titled this edit Part I. My favorite sheet masks are ones that give a calmed, plumped, and overall glowing appearance (basically, baby skin). If that sounds like something you’re interested in, let’s get to this!
Favorite Sheet Masks
Sheet masks are one-time use cotton/gel or paper material mask that fit your clean face and are typically left on for 15-30 minutes. No rinsing required. I tried my first sheet mask somewhere around 2012 while I was wedding planning.

I picked up a few of the affordable Sephora brand sheet masks and was not impressed with any of them. I then upped my game and tried the Dr. Jart Water Replenishment mask and bam – I became a sheet mask believer. That was the first sheet mask I felt made any obvious change in my skin. After using it (and waking up the next day), my skin was noticeably hydrated, soft, calmed and bright.
