VT Cica Vital Mask Review

I used to be a huge fan of sheet masks, reaching for them almost daily, and proudly showing off dozens of empty sachets at the end of every month. I have never experienced anything like that before getting into kbeauty, so it was new and exciting.
More than six years in, and my enthusiasm for sheet masks waned considerably. The novelty wore off, the sustainability issues with packaging / waste are more prominent than ever, and a lot can be achieved with a good ampoule or serum. But I still occasionally spoil myself with a mask, mostly focusing on specialized ones with interesting materials like hydrogel or foil for a steaming effect, etc. I have also tried some multi-pack Japanese masks, housed in one box similar to tissue paper, but the material was rough and unpleasant.
I’ve been using VT Cica Vital Masks for a few months now. These come in a box of 30 and are available on YesStyle (reward code KBHOBBIT) and Stylevana (code INF10KBH). They promise to tighten, moisturize, and brighten the skin. The star ingredients are yuzu seed peptide, centella asiatica, and hyaluronic acid.
How to use
Apply after cleansing
Leave for 3-15 minutes, remove and discard
Follow with moisturizer
I like using VT masks after cleansing while I apply body lotion. I don’t time them, but it’s likely between 5-10 minutes. Sometimes, I put the mask on while bathing and leave it on for 10-15 minutes. VT Cica VItal Masks have a fresh citrus scent that’s not overwhelming.
I haven’t tried many multi-pack sheet masks, but so far these are my favorite. The material is soft but durable / doesn’t rip. Each sheet is fully saturated and feels almost like jelly, even though these are not hydrogel. I like to use them when my skin needs both plumping and brightening, typically in the evenings.
I wouldn’t go for sheet masks as my main source of brightening ingredients, but they do make a nice and fun addition to an established skincare routine. Lately, my skin has been extra dry and flaky, so I’ve been grabbing these more often and using more serums and a moisturizer afterwards. I see an overall improved complexion and way fewer dry spots.
Like all skincare, using sheet masks is a deeply personal choice. If you are in the market for a larger pack, VT Cica Vital Masks are a good choice. I’m also testing VT’s toner from the same line (review coming soon) and liking that too.
