I was contacted not too long ago by MaskerAide about their mask collection and if I would try them out and see what I thought of them. MaskerAide is a fairly new Canadian company that offers a mask for pretty much any issue you may be dealing with!
The first thing that stood out to me about their products was that I love their packaging! The illustrations on each sheet mask are totally girly and perfect to take out and use for a girls spa day at home. Each sheet mask gives you a rundown of what to use them for and what they intend to do, as well as diagrams showing you how to use them properly. Right now they are available for purchase on the MaskerAide website as well as at a store in Toronto called Gussied Up.
Price: $4.99 CAD each on MaskerAide's website
They are fibre masks infused with vitamins and nutrients and cut to mold to the contours of the face perfectly and are eco-friendly. They don't contain any parabens, harsh dyes and pigments, mineral oils, artificial fragrances, Benzophenone or Glycerins.
Here's a (very cute!) description on each of their facial sheet masks:
All Nighter - Whether you were up all night studying or out all night partying, we’ve got you covered to face the long day ahead. Apply our ALL NIGHTER mask to awaken, refresh and replenish your skin. The cooling effects of the mask will help de-puff and awaken your eyes, while natural Peppermint Oil awakens your senses. Aloe, Argan Oil, Heartleaf (a powerful detoxifier), Honey, Super Fruit and Cactus Extracts work together to erase the signs of the previous night and get you “boardroom” ready!
All Nighter Ingredients:
Detox Diva - Gone are the days of using harsh scrubs and drying clays. Our DETOX DIVA mask (formulated with natural Geranium Oil, Seaweed and Green Tea Leaf Extracts) helps to minimize pores, absorb impurities and protect from toxins and free-radicals without removing your skin’s essential natural oils. Chinese Plum, Strawberry and Lemon Fruit Extracts go to work to gently exfoliate and lift dead skin cells revealing clear luminous skin, while Argan Oil and Honey keep your skin happy and hydrated.

Pre Party Prep Ingredients:

3. Relax for 10-20 minutes. Remove mask and discard. Gently pat moisture into skin or give a quick rinse and lightly pat dry.

I was afraid of how messy the process might be when I opened them up and was happily surprised that the sheet masks held onto every ounce of their jam packed ingredients and nutrients. Any excess I had left on my hands, I put on my neck and chest for extra skin nourishment. The fragrance of each sheet mask was really pleasant and didn't bother or irritate my sinuses either.

I decided to leave them on for 20 minutes to get the full benefits. It was completely relaxing to lie in bed with it on while watching tv or reading a book. The cooling sensation helped diminish the headache I had prior and the lavender oil used in Beauty Rest'ore helped take my mind off work and get ready to catch some zz's. After using I Don't Wanna Grow Up, I noticed my skin looked smoother and the lines in my forehead were less visible. That really impressed me! Detox Diva is great for a light exfoliation that helps brighten and give you a more youthful appearance which I always appreciate getting! All Nighter was literally my life saver after a long night at a party. It helped shrink the ugly bags under my eyes and make me look and feel more awake and presentable for the next day. Since the temperature has dropped outside, my skin has been feeling extra tight and itchy and after putting on Weather Warrior, my skin calmed down and felt more balanced and hydrated. Pre Party Prep is perfect for pre-makeup application because instead of using moisturizer, I was able to get glowing skin after using it and didn't need to wear as much foundation as I would normally.
MaskerAide's facial sheet masks are such a treat for the skin and it honestly can so easily be added into your day to day routine because you're able to multitask with them on. There is no reason or excuse for not adding facial sheet masks into your life on a regular basis because they do nothing but go an extra step further in helping make sure your skin maintains its luminosity and appearance. As I always say, we only have one face and it's better to treat it as good as possible because when it starts showing those signs of damage and aging, there's no going back! Take care of your skin and it will thank you for many, many years to come!
Do you use facial sheet masks? What do you think of them?!
