Shop Story

Take your prep time from days to minutes with the best sheet masks to plump, purify, and perk up tired skin.


Who of us doesn’t want a quick fix the second we see bags under our eyes, skin peeling, or a zit on the rise right before a big date? Face washes, toners, serums, and moisturizers can make a difference in all these dilemmas, but they take time. If you only have a matter of minutes rather than days to fix your face, a sheet mask is your saving grace.


Face sheet masks hydrate, brighten, and restore your skin all in the time it takes for you to watch the latest episode of “Schitt’s Creek.” From specialized patches to full facial cleansing, these sheet masks will transform your face and give you results like only a spa-quality facial can.


Take a look below at our top contenders for the best sheet masks on the market. They vary from budget buys to splurge-worthy steals for your specific skincare concerns, whether that’s anti-aging or acne prevention. Many on the list also feature key ingredients you’ve likely been hearing about, like hyaluronic acid, tea tree oil, salicylic acid, and green tea.

Sephora Collection Green Tea


Sephora is bursting with flashy high-end beauty brands left and right, but one of the best budget brands in store happens to be its own. The Sephora Collection has a massive assortment of makeup, hair, and tools, but one of the brand's best products (that’s always a no brainer add-to-cart for us) is its skin masks. If your skin runs on the oily side, we encourage you to try Sephora’s Green Tea Face Mask. It’s formulated with active ingredients to penetrate and purify your skin, leaving your face mattified and smooth.

Best for Oily Skin

Jart+ Clear Skin Lover Rubber


Though we wish acne was left back in our teenage years, along with razor thin eyebrows, sadly we can’t have it all. Though a cure to acne would be amazing, this Dr. Jart two-step mask is the next best thing. Unlike traditional sheet masks, which come slathered in their concentrations, this sheet mask arrives prepackaged apart from its serum. You first apply the highly concentrated, pore-clearing mixture to your face, then seal it with the pairing rubber mask that locks in ingredients and keeps them from evaporating as they work their magic.

Too Cool for School Egg Cream


Whether it’s winter or summer, dry skin can be a year round issue for some. It can lead to skin irritation, peeling, and problems with makeup application. Give your tired skin a youthful refresh with this Egg Cream Mask from K-Beauty brand Too Cool for School. A concoction of key ingredients, such as coconut water, egg extracts, and niacinamide, help this nutrient-rich formula brighten, hydrate, and nourish. Use it before bed or right when you wake up for the day for dewy, radiant morning skin.

Best for Dry Skin

Farmacy Coconut Gel


While everyone’s first thought when they think anti-aging is wrinkles, it’s more so about the prevention of signs of aging as a whole (dryness, dullness, and discoloration) rather than the diminishment of fine lines. To achieve that childlike gleam use this Farmacy Beauty hydrating mask. Filled with ultra-moisturizing coconut water, hyaluronic acid, and cucumber extract, in just 10 minutes you can develop a healthy-looking glimmer! Pro tip: Take the extra mask essence out of the packet and massage it into your neck and décolletage to revive those areas as well.

From her makeup to skincare, Charlotte Tilbury knows how to give women of all ages brilliant, even, glowing skin. This sheet mask was clinically tested on 30 women for a two-week period that garnered serious results. Ninety-one percent reported back that their skin was softer and more hydrated; 88 percent said their skin tone was more even; and 85 percent had brighter, more luminous skin.

Dermatologist tested and cruelty-free, this face mask is non-comedogenic and non-irritating so it won’t throw your skin into an unbalanced spiral.
