The 7 Best Sheet Masks for Juicy, Hydrated Skin

Kick dry, dull skin to the curb.

By: Hannah Baxter

It’s no secret that we love Korean beauty products—they’re effective, well-researched, and almost guaranteed to give your skin the healthy glow you crave. One of our favorites has to be the signature sheet mask, a concentrated material you apply over your face (making you look a little bit like Jason; yikes) so the ingredients can sink deep into your pores over the next five to fifteen minutes. And since we’re always looking for a bit of added hydration—especially when hot or cold weather is taking its toll—we decided to investigate which brands make the most soothing and moisturizing versions on the market. Check out our seven favorites below.


Peach & Lily Original Glow Sheet Mask Set, $80

Don’t balk at the price of this set—it breaks down to $4 per mask, and these bad boys are seriously magic. Founder Alicia Yoon is a K-beauty master, and her proprietary masks will have your skin glowing in no time.

MMBalance Face Mask, $22

Although Dr. Ellen Marmur’s cult-favorite mask is currently sold out, we recommend checking her site every day until it’s back. The mask is made of thick hydrogel and stuffed with pre- and probiotics to feed your skin, as well as marine ingredients to fight premature aging from the sun.

SK-II Facial Treatment Mask , $95

These six masks each contain SK-II’s signature Pitera concentration, which helps deeply hydrate and plump the skin so it is smooth, supple, and incredibly soft. It might even help you look like Cate Blanchett, which is always a plus in our book.

Charlotte Tilbury Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask, $19

If you’re worried about the one-and-done aspect of a sheet mask, then check out Charlotte Tilbury’s version. It goes on dry, and the brand’s ‘5-step solution’ is activated by massaging it into the skin. Afterwards you peel it off and place it back in the pouch to be used up to three more times. Skin is brightened and soothed after just 15 minutes.

Dr. Jart+ Hydration Lover Rubber Mask, $12

Yes, this mask can be a little frightening to wear, but the algae-derived rubber material is an ingenious addition. After applying the hydration ampoule, the extra layer helps lower the temperature of your skin to keep it soothed and calm. The added phytokératin complex keeps your skin hydrated all day long.

Estée Lauder Micro Essence Infusion Mask, $72

Another six-pack of masks. The cotton material is drenched in the brand’s Micro-Nutrient Bio-Ferment, a K-beauty-inspired ingredient. It was created to mimic organisms called extremophiles, which are able to survive in some of the harshest environments on the planet. On your skin, however, it leaves you glowing and deeply moisturized.

It’s SKIN The Fresh Face Mask Honey, $8

Honey is full of antioxidants to help stop premature aging and soothe irritated skin, which is why this bargain of a sheet mask is always on our shelves. Aside from the heavenly scent, it leaves you with an otherworldly glow after only one use. We recommend it as a pre-bedtime skin-care step to lock in hydration overnight.
