Skinfood Beauty in a Food Sheet Mask Review
I’m 28 and have combination skin (oily t-zone and dry-to-normal cheeks). I use sheet masks almost daily, so I’m always on the lookout for a good budget friendly option. In my fridge, the shelves that normal people use for eggs and butter are packed with my sheet mask stash.
Skinfood Beauty in a Food masks are probably my favorite budget masks. I buy them again and again, especially the Centella one (more on that later). The masks are made from soft, hypoallergenic cotton and are saturated with various serums. There’s usually plenty extra for the face and neck as well.
How to use:
Cleanse the skin and use toner
Apply the mask for 10-20 minutes
Remove, pat in the remaining serum, and apply moisturizer
The line has the following “flavors”:
Aloe - hydrates and soothes
Ginseng - nourishes aging skin and improves skin tone
Propolis & bee venom - improves skin tone (I really like this one!)
Strawberry - brightening hydration for dull skin
Lemon - purifies and lightens dull skin (I’m sensitive to citrus masks like this so my face got a bit red but returned back to normal within a few minutes)
Caviar - strengthens the skin and prevents sagging (never too early to start thinking about that)
Blueberry - hydrates and strengthens
Salmon - nourishes (and doesn’t smell like fish, thankfully).
Centella asiatica mask deserves separate recognition. Centella is known for its
healing and anti-inflammatory properties and is commonly found in products for acne-prone skin. Since I don’t generally suffer from acne, I don’t use acne-specific daily products. But nobody is perfect, and my skin occasionally reminds me that it’s still the boss and breaks out or gets red, especially during certain times a month. For those occasions, I always have a Skinfood centella mask on hand. One use and the redness calms down, irritation subsides, and by next morning I can pass for a human once again (no, I don’t leave the mask on overnight, the lingering effect is just more noticeable in the morning). After a week of beer, Nutella crepes and other culinary obscenities in Germany earlier in the year, I used these masks to whip my face back into shape. So, next time you are restocking your sheet masks, look into these ones.
