K-beauty is so much more than carbonated face masks, peelable lip stains and pretty packaging. Whether you’ve noticed it or not, Korean beauty trends have been influencing the UK skincare market for years now; BB creams, cleansing oils and sheet masks are all perfect examples of this. VITAMASQUES (now available at LookFantastic.com) create skincare products heavily influenced by innovative Korean technology and make them available locally at affordable prices. I was recently sent their new moisturising Pomegranate face mask to try.
Pomegranate is well known for its high concentration of Vitamin C. Its antioxidant properties and its role in collagen synthesis is said to make Vitamin C an important player for skins health and antiaging. VITAMASQUES contains extracts of pomegranate as well as triple layer sheet technology designed to enhance the moisture content within the mask and lead to an increased absorption rate within the skin.
As with most sheet masks simply cleanse beforehand, gently remove the mask from its packaging, apply tightly into the contours of the face and leave for 20 minutes. The mask is soaked in a hydrating serum that left my skin feeling soft and plump. This mask is great if your skin is looking tired or a little dull as it gives an instant boost of moisture. Applying the mask is easy and waiting for the cooling serum to absorb into the skin is incredibly relaxing. This mask is a great pick me up for stressed-out skin and is sure to leave your complexion glowing.
Other varieties contain Manuka Honey, Tea Tree and Acai Berry, all of which retail for £3.99 for a single sheet mask or £12.99 for a multipack of 4 and are available now at LookFantastic.com.0
