Face mask or Facial mask is an important component of the modern skincare routine. In the standard 10 step Korean routine, the 7th step is the application of face masks. There are many different types of facial masks that provide different benefits and treat different skin concerns.
Face Masks for skin care were originally only in the form of mask sheets. With the rapid advancement of skincare science and product innovations, the face mask is a rich product line with a lot of exciting products. With the inventiveness of the Korean manufacturers, they offer the consumers of face masks using a rich variety of natural ingredients, including plant extracts, collagen, and vitamins. Many Korean face masks are designed to deal with different skin concerns, such as acne, wrinkles and fine lines, skin redness and dullness.
With the face masks resting on the skin for a reasonable duration, mostly 15 to 20 minutes, the concentrated active ingredients and vital factors that are soaked in the masks can be absorbed into the skin thoroughly. Face masks can boost up the benefits of the whole skincare routine effectively. As face masks are becoming more and more important as a skincare product group, we find it is justifiable to allocate them to a single product collection.
Facial Masks and Sheet Masks, depending on their ingredients, providing many benefits such as deep skin hydration or moisturizing, improving of skin texture by refining pores, cleaning clogged pores, enhancing skin youthfulness by minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, supporting the production of skin collagen, fighting off free radicals and skin dark spots. They can upgrade the effects of your skincare routine if used properly. However, some face masks contain concentrated active ingredients, if they are applied to the wrong skin type or wrong skin concerns, they can cause harm rather than good. Active ingredients are powerful agents that can cause irritation, redness, burning, and other negative effects if used on the wrong skin type or exaggerate the skin issues rather than tamping them.
The safest approach to choose the right face masks for your skin should stick to the following three principles:
1) Take your regular skincare routine as your core frame of reference in order to choose the ingredients and brands of the face masks. As you have taken time to experiment and to learn the brands, the product ingredients and their effects before you settle them down as the combo of your skincare routine, you should be familiar with the products of the brands very well. Since most skincare brands offer facial masks as one of their product lines, you can easily find facial masks with ingredients that you have already adapted to very well.
2) Before trying something new from a brand that you are not familiar with, for skin concerns that are not treated well by the products you are currently using, you should always check out the products ingredients, how are their compatibility with your skin types and what effects they should be on treating your skin concern. Remember, always begin with small trials, if there are any problems, stop immediately and seek professional advice.
3)Tamp your urge to use skin masks daily, especially those that provide deep cleaning, oil and dust absorption and exfoliation, they may lead to irritation or over-drying of the skin. Following the product instructions, normally 2 to 3 times a week would be sufficient. Those with very sensitive skin, once per week or longer is recommended.
Facial masks are great for skincare. We highly recommend all girls should integrate them into their regular skincare routine. You would not get much benefit by treating a face mask as a stand alone product without considering what you have been doing daily for your skin. Adopting an effective skincare regimen, knowing your skin type and their characteristics, and accumulating knowledge on the skincare products and their ingredients as well as your particular skin concerns would ensure yourself be a skilful manager of the health and beauty of your skin. Taking a sensible approach that backs up with solid knowledge, you can choose the right face masks for the optimal benefits.
We group our face mask products in one single product collection as it becomes an important skincare product category. However, we would not advise you to replace a regular skincare routine by applying several face masks in a roll sequentially. Face masks should be used to enhance the effectiveness of some steps in your routine and provide treatments on some face issues that cannot be handled easily in normal skincare.
The rapid product innovations, especially from the Korean manufacturers, have broadened the types of face masks in the market. Besides the traditional sheet masks that are made of thin fabric sheets soaked with serum or essence, facial masks have various physical forms such as cream, gel, clay and mud. There is no unified industrial face mask classification. We use a combination of mask materials and their core functions to group the products into sub-collections. There are 10 product sub-collection respectively:
Our Face Mask collection has a few hundred facial mask products and the size of our product portfolio will grow continuously in response to the rate of product innovation. We are skewed toward Korean origin products due to their attractive quality to price ratio. Though we are open to products of other origins if their quality, pricing, availability etc match our merchandising standard.
Our Sheet Mask sub-collection has the largest range of products containing nearly 60% of the Face Mask collection. Sheet masks are made of microfibre of cotton, rayon or cellulose that are cut in face shape and soaked with serums, essences and other skincare ingredients. Thanks to the continuous product innovations by the Korean brands, besides providing the basic benefit of skin moisturizing and soothing, the Korean sheet masks have rich product varieties dealing with different skin issues such as sensitive skin, skin aging, acne and clogged pores, skin pigmentation and many others. As a sheet mask is always placed onto the face and resting for 10 to 15 minutes, this ensures the concentration ingredients are fully absorbed by the skin cells, this skin spa can pamper your skin health condition effectively.
In the Mask Sheet sub-collection, you can find the products from many popular Korean brands such as AHC, Abib, Dr. Jart+, Innisfree and Mediheal, just to name a few. As usual, the Korean products use mostly natural ingredients like green tea, rose, aloe, cucumber or herbal extracts. You can easily find the right products to supplement your skincare routine.
Mask sheets are sold at 10 pieces per pack. One sheet costs from $2 to $4 each. It is very affordable and offers the best value for money. However, one drawback of the mask sheet is its one-size-fits-all design, particularly for a person with complex skin type with different skin conditions in different parts of the face, or having a localized skin issue. Then a mask sheet that handles a particular skin concern may not be flexible enough to just deal with the local area.
To rescue the inflexibility and high wastage of the mask sheets to deal with localized skin issues, there are facial masks of various physical forms introduced to the market. The facial masks can be in the form of cream, gel, clay, mud and semi-solids etc. They are blended with active ingredients and are applied onto the face surface as thin layers. They can be applied locally not necessarily the whole face compared to mask sheet, they are more skin issue specific and cost effective.
Around 40% of the Face Mask Collection are facial mask products. We group them into 8 sub categories and give you a short guide tour in the following.
Bubble masks are mostly used for face cleansing, refining pores and mild skin toning. They are in many physical forms such as clay, cream, and gel. After applying a layer on the face, bubble foam is formed after exposing it to the air. The bubble foam can act on the skin to produce deep skin cleansing and absorbing grease and dirt from pores. Depending on the product, the foam is rested on the face for 10 to 15 minutes and then rinsed off by water. Bubble masks provide gently scrubbing to the face and remove unclogging skin pores and treating acne effectively.
Clay masks are usually made of bentonite, kaolin or volcanic clays. They are effective to absorb dirt, oil and impurities from the skin that help to create a clean, bright skin complexion. All clay masks are blended with various natural ingredients to add extra skincare benefits. Clay masks absorb oil and moisture and it is an effective cleansing agent for oil skin type. However, as a note of precaution, clay masks are not suitable for dry skin, as the loss of excess oil and greasy substances can make the skin feel tight and irritable.
Mud masks are made of mud, usually from the Dead Sea or other mineral-rich sources. Compared to clay, mud is usually rich in moistures and does not dry up skin as the clay does. Mud masks draw out impurities and toxins from deep down the skin's surface and keep the skin hydrated. All mud masks are blended with many organic and natural ingredients to provide added skincare benefits. Besides deep cleansing, mud masks provide healing, firming, moisturizing and soothing to the skin. If you are of dry skin type, Mud masks should be the right products for you.
Modeling masks or sometimes called rubber masks, are in powder form, that you mix the powder with water to form a paste. This paste is then applied to your face and allowed to harden. The masks seal in the skincare ingredients and absorb the impurities and dirt from the skin at the same time. Modeling masks help to drive active ingredients deeper into your skin and moisturize and soothe the skin. Moreover, they reduce skin puffiness, inflammation, redness and erythema. Modeling masks are very effective to give you a soft, glowing, glassy looking skin.
As the product name implies, the main functions of peel off masks are to provide exfoliation, removing dead skin cells and clogged pores. In addition, all our Korean peel-off masks are blended with various active ingredients to provide other skin benefits such as softening, balancing skin texture, moisturizing, anti-aging, soothing and relaxing skin.
You can use sleeping masks once or twice weekly to provide intense pamper and revitalize your skin. Our array of sleeping masks provide various benefits such as skin brightening, supplementing and nourishing skins with vitamins, collagens, and antioxidants. By wearing the masks overnight, the nutrients and active ingredients are thoroughly absorbed so that your skin is repaired and revitalized as if having an overall spa. Our sleeping masks are the must in your skincare arsenals.
We have a range of wash off masks in our collection. If you prefer to rinse your face with water after wearing the masks on your face, wash off masks can provide the same skincare benefits as other types of masks.
If you want to firm up the skin around your jaw to create a slim, firm and well defined jawline, we have a range of v-face masks for you to choose from.
