Review: Maskeraide Sheet Masks (your face will thank you)

Maskeraide is a new line of incredibly chic facial sheet masks that combine playful design with serious ingredients. Sheet masks are huge in the asia beauty market, but honestly I thought they looked a bit crazy! After trying them out I may never go back to my trusty queen helene mint julep green face again. Although I'm not sure which one looks more silly on :)
Sheet masks are special type of facial mask made from a thin fiber sheet that is cut to contour to your face. The fibre mask is soaked in a highly concentrated serum that is infused with vitamins and nutrients. Each mask is formulated with an Argan Oil base serum, which leaves the skin feeling fresh, smooth and extremely hydrated. Maskeraide is Paraben Free, Mineral Oil Free, Pigment Free, Artificial Fragrance Free, Glycerin Free, Vegan Friendly and Eco Friendly. The masks are available in two different serums. A clear base that's great for day time and under makeup and a cream based serum which works wonders at night.

Weather Warrior, Pre-Party Prep, Beauty Rest'ore, I don't wanna grow up, Detox Diva, All Nighter. The packaging and names of these masks are adorable! They had me with the attention to detail. I love how instead of the typical "for dry skin, blemishes, oily skin etc." they're tailored to when you would use them. After a night of partying, harsh weather, before a date, relaxation. It's a very cool concept.
I tried out "Beauty Rest'ore" first. Why is it the girl on the package looks so glamorous in her mask yet I look like Jason Voorhees? :) There's just no making this look cool, you WILL frighten everyone in your household.
 And after. So sorry for my makeupless face, it's probably more scary than the slasher mask, but I think the point of skincare treatments are to show what it can do for your skin under the makeup. I've been putting my face through some aha/bha/glycolic peels to fade my vacation tan & a lot of theater makeup over Halloween. All of which are pretty harsh, and this mask brought my skin back to life. It left my skin feeling amazingly soft and hydrated and the light lavender scent is calming and relaxing. The sheets are drenched in liquidy skin food and I could feel the effects right away, but the real proof is the next morning when you awake to glowing skin. I wish they would bottle this stuff! I would use it every day. I passed a few of these along to my girlfriends to try and they all had great things to say. Pre-party Prep being the favorite for a day mask for it's tightening & brightening effects and Beauty Re'store & I Don't Wanna Grow Up for the nighttime beauty regimen. There really isn't one better than the other, just choose what suits you needs best...or get them all!
Even Demi and Jessica Simpson are doing it :) Next hot celebrity trend?

Face Mask's are a necessary indulgence that everyone should treat themselves to and these are some of the most luxurious I've tried. With the holiday's coming up they would make great gifts or beauty stocking stuffer's!
