For the longest time sheet masks were obscure beauty products only found in Asian beauty stores. To say things have changed would be a gross understatement because you can now find these masks everywhere. From your local drugstore to your favourite high-end beauty boutique there is a sheet mask explosion happing right now people! So with these masks being a pretty trendy item right now I thought, why not have a good ole fashion show down?
Our budget friendly contender is The Face Shop's Hylauronic Sheet mask versus the pricey Dr. Jart Water Fuse Mask.
Dr. Jart Water Fuse Mask $9.00 each
I love that Dr. Jart Water Fuse Mask contains hyaluronic acid, but let’s not beat around the bush here the texture of this mask throws me off. In my experience sheet masks (even the gel kinds) are wet but Dr. Jart Water Fuse is far from it. This mask is almost rubbery in texture…its strange, unexpected and totally different than any other mask I’ve ever tried.
Application of this mask is very easy… more or less it just sticks to your face with ease. While on this mask feels cooling and refreshing, making it the perfect contrasting complement to a hot bubble bath. As far as results go I wouldn’t say this is made a huge difference in the hydration department. The one thing I did notice is that this did leave my skin feeling incredibly soft. Enjoyable, different but sort of lack luster if you ask me.
The Face Shop Essential Hyaluronic Acid Mask $2.00
The Essential Hyaluronic Mask is another hydrating face mask using the miracle ingredient hyaluronic acid, but at a fraction of the price. Unlike the Dr. Brant the Face Shop version is a traditional style material sheet mask that comes completely saturated in liquid. I find application a little harder with this version because it tends to be slightly goopy. With that being said it’s not the end of the world because once you get this mask on it’s on.
Interestingly at 4.5 times less than the Dr. Jart the results of Essential Hyaluronic mask are far superior. Not only does this leave my skin soft, but it also leaves me with noticeably hydrated, plump and luminous too.
I’m sorry Dr. Jart but there is a clear cut winner here! Ladies if you find change floating around in the bottom of your purse, on the ground or tucked into a sofa go grab The Face Shop’s Essential Hyaluronic Acid Mask. Beating the mask that is 4.5 times its price this budget beauty item does not disappoint.
