Best hydrating sheet mask

September 27, 2019

Now that fall is officially here — yes, it may still be warm out, but it’s definitely fall — you’re likely in need of a hydrating sheet mask (or five) more than ever. With any luck, you had some amazing times this summer, filled with sunshine, countless hours spent at the pool and beach… and, as a result, some very dry skin. Now that the summer is over, it’s time to get to work repairing your skin from the summer months, not to mention protecting it from the inevitable fall chill that’ll be here sooner than you realize.

Now, there are a lot of different ways to repair your dry skin, but a great hydrating sheet mask is the absolute fastest, most convenient way to infuse your skin with moisturizing nutrients and smooth out dry patches. We love hydrating lotion and moisturizers, too, but hydrating sheet masks get the job done quickly and efficiently without leaving a mess or making it impossible to do anything with your hands for long stretches of time. Just put on a hydrating sheet mask for about 15 minutes, enjoy the sensation of your face being nourished with gentle intensity, and then take it off and behold the glow!

Hydrating sheet masks have been a staple beauty product in Asia for years, and the market for them has exploded in the west over the last few years as people have discovered their amazing benefits. That has led to both Asian companies setting up shop in the United States and American brands either importing products or creating their own hydrating sheet masks. The net result has been a huge influx in the number of hydrating sheet mask options available, and since they’re still a relatively new product here, you could wind up a little bit confused as to which ones to trust and which will work for you. Luckily, you have MASSE on your side.

Here at MASSE, it’s our goal to provide recommendations for the best hydrating sheet masks, as chosen by people who have really used them. The last thing we want is to let you take any risks with your complexion, so we’re not going to risk anyone giving you bad advice. With that in mind, we don’t allow any paid reviews or sponsored posts, so that the hydrating sheet masks we’ve laid out below are only the best of the best.

  • Vital Hydra Solution Deep Hydration Mask Sheet

    $6.00

    By Dr. Jart+

    Dr. Jart+’s Vital Hydra Solution Deep Hydration Mask Sheet is made with a secret weapon: biocellulose. It’s technically a product of bacteria, but before you let that gross you out, think about it this way: the reason why it works so well for hydrating sheet masks is that because it comes from a living creature, so it molds to your skin, ensuring that they cover every nook and cranny of your face — something that doesn’t always happen with a paper mask. MASSE users love how hydrating it is and use it in all situations, whether it’s before bed or before a big night!

  • Snail Bee High Content Mask Pack (Box of 10)

    $25.00

    By Benton

    Speaking of layering your face with living cells, Benton’s Snail Bee High Content Mask is absolutely filled with nourishing natural ingredients. Most prominent are snail mucin — basically, the soft goo that snails leave in their wake, which hydrates and creates super-soft skin — and bee venom extract, which is great for firming up skin texture. MASSE users absolutely love this hydrating sheet mask — they literally use the word “love” a ton in their reviews — and say it leaves their skin glowing for hours on end.

  • Brightening Face Mask

    $28.00

    By Karuna

    Hydrating sheet masks represent one of the fastest ways to store moisture and healthy glow to your skin, and some hydrating sheet masks work even faster. Karuna’s Brightening Face Mask is one of those super-effective, super-efficient hydrating sheet masks, evening your skin tone and adding a magnificent glow. The radiance comes thanks to grapefruit seed extract, rare Asian plant extracts and salicylic acid, among other great ingredients, making for a sweet and natural hydrating sheet mask that MASSE shoppers really love.

  • Forever Glow Mask

    $75.00

    By Joanna Vargas

    Joanna Vargas’s Forever Glow Mask is a premium hydrating sheet mask that is very much worth the price tag. There is no hydrating sheet mask we’ve seen that has more nourishing nutrients or hydrating ingredients. One of its core ingredients, kelp, contains vitamins A, C and E, as well as many B vitamins, while its gingko biloba and olive leaf extracts are antioxidants that help rejuvenate your skin. Hyaluronic acid rushes moisture to your skin, too. Wear one of these hydrating sheet masks and you’ll experience “real results and an insane glow,” as MASSE users rave.

  • Does it All Sheet Mask

    $6.09

    By 100% Pure

    Hey, remember when we said that the Joanna Vargas Forever Glow Mask had more nourishing ingredients than any hydrating sheet mask we’ve ever seen? Yeah, scratch that, 100% Pure’s Does It All Sheet Mask is at least on the same level. As its name implies, this hydrating sheet mask is absolutely loaded with all kinds of top-shelf nutrients, including retinol, vitamins C and E, rosehip oil, and hyaluronic acid. All together they make for a hydrating sheet mask that not only infuses the face with moisture, it reduces lines and wrinkles, increases collagen production, and provides many more benefits. It only takes 20 minutes to work, and MASSE shoppers note just how much it helps restore their damaged skin as well as soothe and calm it.
