REVIEW: Maskeraide Sheet Masks!




Face masks are always a favourite beauty luxury in my book. I love the fresh face masks at LUSH, and I recently purchased the luminizing black mask from boscia. I love using facial masks that have natural ingredients, because I figure if you're going to slather something onto your skin in hopes it'll be absorbed, natural ingredients are the best way to go. 

I recently tried out some sheet masks from the Canadian company Maskeraide. Sheet masks are a type of facial mask I was less familiar with. Rather than applying a thick paste to your face, sheet masks are a special type of mask made from thin fiber that is cut out to contour the face. The fiber mask is soaked in a highly concentrated serum infused with vitamins and nutrients. Sheet masks tote a variety of benefits, such as the fact that they provide superior deep hydration, act as an incubator and have a functional, easy to use design. 


The sheet masks from Maskeraide come drenched in a highly concentrated Argan Oil based serum that is also packed with vitamins and nutrients to solve a variety of skin concerns. The masks are free of parabens, harsh dyes and pigments, mineral oils, artificial fragrances, glycerins and benzophenone. These masks are vegan, and appropriate for all skin types! 
There are six different masks available- one to suit every skin need! The packaging is gorgeous on these masks- they're beautiful to look at and fun to use!
Maskeraide Masks: Pre Party Prep, Beauty Restore, Weather Warrior

Maskeraide Masks: I Don't Wanna Grow Up, Detox Diva, All Nighter
Each mask has specific ingredients included to combat certain skin concerns. I recently used the WEATHER WARRIOR ($4.99 each) mask because my skin was feeling unusually dry. I think this is because of a Benzoyl Peroxide spot treatment I have been using from Kellett that is apparently too harsh for my skin!
Weather Warrior mask has aloe vera, green tea, witch hazel and argan oil to soothe, calm and heal the skin.


There is no way to show the mask without looking a little goofy, so here I am wearing my sheet mask! It isn't glamorous to look at, but it is worth it for the skin benefits :)
Me wearing a Maskeraide Sheet Mask! 
Overall, I am very impressed with this company. It is proudly Canadian, and eco-friendly. These masks are much less messy than traditional face masks, and very easy to remove. Unlike other masks, this mask doesn't harden on the face- you can remove it after 10-20 minutes of wear and it will still be moist. Maskeraide suggests rubbing the leftover mask on other body parts such as your neck, arms or legs so that other areas of the body can also enjoy the skin benefits of the mask. The masks are very hydrating and soothing- they're relaxing to use, as you can just sit back and put your feet up for 10-20 minutes while the cooling mask works its magic. After using this mask, I immediately noted that my skin felt extremely soft and supple- I am very pleased with the results! It completed cleared up my patchy dry skin.

  1. I love the picture of you in the mask :)

    I'm looking forward to trying my first sheet mask that I got as a sample in my purchase from Korea and if I like the style of a sheet mask, I might have to try something from this company too.

  3. I've never heard of this brand! I normally don't like sheet masks because they harden and then hurt to remove, but these ones look promising! :)

  15. These contain honey extract, but they say they are vegan. Most vegans don't consider honey to be vegan.
