Hair Masks Review

If you love coloring your hair then you know how damaging it can be. I’ve bleached and dyed my hair blonde, grey, blue, dark violet, and magenta all within a time span of  2 and a half years. To keep my hair healthy and hydrated I’ve gone through a bunch of hair masks. These are the latest I’ve tried.

Korean Skincare: The Cure Collagen Essence Sheet Masks Review

20170620_221113
I’m currently on the hunt to find some good quality sheet masks at a discounted price. I came across a bunch of these The Cure sheet masks at Ross, Marshalls, & TJ Maxx. So I decided to buy a few of these to try out for you guys. Each box costs $5.99 for 5 masks, so about $1.25 for each mask including tax. They have a bunch of different masks you can choose from, depending on what you are looking for.

Unfortunately these masks were a hit and miss.  There were a few that I liked: the Brightening and Argan Oil. They smelled great and refreshing. My skin felt smooth and soft afterwards. While there were a few that didn’t quite work for me. The Tea Tree and the Pearl masks had a very strong, almost overwhelming scent to them. I honestly had to force myself to finish the box. The Collagen and the Vitamin left a sticky residue. Also the Tea Tree and the Coenzyme Q10 masks broke me out. Only a few hours after doing the masks, I noticed small white bumps all over my face.

It’s definitely one of the cheaper Korean sheet masks out there but the real question is, is it worth it??? Did the masks even do as they claim? No. My skin did not look brighter, firmer, nor did it calm down my troubled skin. All the mask did was moisturize my skin, which gel mask sheets are supposed to do. They were maybe average at best. I would not repurchase these again since a few broke me out and the scent was too strong for me to handle. But hey, if you have dry skin and looking for some moisturizing masks, these might work out for you. You never know.

If you are trying to save money, buying a mask in a squeezed tubed or bottle will average out cheaper, since you can use it more than just 5 times. With these sheet masks you really are paying for the convenience and the materials.

**A little background info:  I have very oily skin (usually have to blot after 3 hrs), sensitive, and acne prone. Just because a product didn’t work for me doesn’t mean it won’t work for you. We all have different skin types.**
