Korean Face Mask

We don't do much beauty or fashion on the blog, but that doesn't mean that we can't share one of our new discoveries for when you are getting ready for an event. In fact, I think most people forget to take time for themselves when they are preparing for an event. Typically the concern falls onto the grocery list, menu, cleaning house and decor, but that doesn't mean you have to get so stressed that you can't take a few minutes for yourself. Korean skincare is all the rage right now, and Carly and I couldn't help but try it out. Carly came to visit a while back and brought a collection of Innisfree face masks she found online for half the price and after dinner and drinks, we spent the evening trying them out! 

I honestly can't believe I am sharing this picture, but the mask was completely different from anything I have used before. Typically, I use mud mask products, but these sheet masks are best described as a gel like film that you slowly applied to your face. 

How to Use

  1. Refrigerate mask for a few hours before applying, giving a very cooling effect. 
  2. Gently wash your face and apply a toner. 
  3. Slowly, apply the mask from top to bottom avoiding your eyes and lips. 
  4. Let mask sit for about 10-20 minutes. (This may be the hardest part. Carly and I couldn't stop laughing, which moved the mask around...) 
  5. Remove the and pat the remaining gel into your skin. 

We had a great time, and honestly these weren't too expensive. Carly ordered them off Amazon, here. However, you can do more research as well as discover quite a large selection of Innisfree products on their website, which I may be trying out more. You don't have to go online anymore though to find amazing Korean products, Target and Sephora have both expanded their skincare with a wide selection, which is great because I find myself at both retailers more often than not. 

Carly and I both had a great time and really enjoyed the masks. I would highly recommend trying them out, and I may be even buying a few myself. Either way, just remember when you are planning or attending an event, take a few minutes for yourself to feel your best!

Happy Masking!
