I masked for 5 days straight... Review of Leaders Sheet Masks!

I masked for 5 days straight... Review of Leaders Sheet Masks!

I’ve been a fan of Leader’s Labotica Argan Oil Deep Cleansing Tissue, so it’s only fair that I try out their sheet masks! Thank you so much to Sokoglam for generously gifting me this!

Sheet masks are basically my favorite lazy facials. Had a long day? Slap on a sheet mask. Had a GREAT day? Slap on a sheet mask. Life isn’t going right? Slap on a sheet mask. Just wanna treat yourself? Slap on a sheet mask.

Sometimes, if I don’t want to do my whole skincare routine at night, I’ll just slap on a sheet mask.

Throughout this last week, I pampered myself and gave myself the chance to mask every single night. Yes, a sheet mask a night! My face feels like a soft and plump cloud.

I know it might be self explanatory, but if you’re new to this, this is how you use a sheet mask!

  1. Cleanse your face with your usual cleanser (bonus points if you double cleanse.)

  2. Pat dry, then apply toner.

  3. With clean hands, tear open the sheet mask package, unfold it, and apply!

  4. Leave it on for 15-20 minutes and remove.

  5. Pat in excess essence and continue with your moisturizer.

Pro tip: If you’re using it at night, try not to fall asleep with it on! If you leave it on for too long, the mask can dry out and actually start to ABSORB moisture from your face and dry it out, reversing the effects!

This mask REALLY softened my skin! I had some cystic acne around my chin, and after using this mask, the pimples have sunk down significantly. If you have dry skin or angry and inflamed skin, I seriously recommend this sheet mask.

Any sheet mask with hyaluronic acid is also a huge plus for me. After all, it’s my favorite ingredient! Hyaluronic acid never fails to give my skin the hydration it needs and this mask proves it too!

This specific mask was the one out of this bunch that made a noticeable difference! After this mask, two different people told me my skin was so much brighter! So this mask definitely did something right.

If you’re looking for a quick pick-me-up or if it’s been a long day, this is the mask I recommend to lift your spirits.

This mask is great for dull and tired skin! I didn’t see a huge difference in my skin with this one, but it did provide me hydration. This is a good mask to have whenever you want some self pampering.

Leaders Mediterranean Olive Brightening Mask – $6 on Sokoglam.

DSC_0313.jpg

Ingredients: Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, 1,2-Hexanediol, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Fruit Extract, Betaine, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Acer Saccharum (Sugar Maple) Extract, Ethylhexylglycerin, Caprylyl Glycol, Arnica Montana Flower Extract, Xanthan Gum, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Water, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Fragrance, Houttuynia Cordata Extract, Ledum Palustre Extract, Saururus Chinensis Extract, Artemisia Absinthium Extract, Artemisia Capillaris Flower Extract, Achillea Millefolium Extract, Ecklonia Cava Extract, Morus Alba Bark Extract, Veronica Officinalis Extract, Melissa Officinalis Leaf Extract, Malva Sylvestris (Mallow) Extract, Alchemilla Vulgaris Extract, Alcohol, Primula Veris Extract, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Leaf Extract, Gentiana Lutea Root Extract, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Panthenol, Niacinamide, Tocopheryl Acetate, Retinyl Palmitate, Biotin, Ascorbic Acid, Folic Acid, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Ceramide 3, Glyceryl Linolenate, Glyceryl Linoleate, Glyceryl Arachidonate

This mask did literally what was promised! My skin is so bright and clear because of it. The olive extract made my face smooth and bouncy. I really enjoyed that it’s a bio-cellulose mask. That fact that it was so thin, it adhered to every part of my face.

When first applied, it did burn my skin a bit due to the amount of alcohol in it. If you’re sensitive to alcohol, I recommend steering clear of this mask! Otherwise, mask on, my friends.

Leaders Tundra Cranberry Anti-Aging Mask – $6 on Sokoglam.

DSC_0299.jpg

Ingredients: Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Betaine, 1,2-Hexanediol, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Fruit Extract, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Acer Saccharum (Sugar Maple) Extract, Ethylhexylglycerin, Caprylyl Glycol, Arnica Montana Flower Extract, Xanthan Gum, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Water, Fragrance, Houttuynia Cordata Extract, Vaccinium Macrocarpon (Cranberry) Seed Oil, Ledum Palustre Extract, Saururus Chinensis Extract, Artemisia Absinthium Extract, Artemisia Capillaris Flower Extract, Ecklonia Cava Extract, Achillea Millefolium Extract, Gentiana Lutea Root Extract, Peucedanum Ostruthium Leaf Extract, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Panthenol, Niacinamide, Tocopheryl Acetate, Sodium Benzoate, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, Potassium Sorbate, Citric Acid, Retinyl Palmitate, Biotin, Ascorbic Acid, Folic Acid, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Ceramide 3, Glyceryl Linolenate, Glyceryl Linoleate, Glyceryl Arachidonate

This sheet mask smelled the best out of the set! It’s definitely the cranberries. I’m always a sucker for fruity scents in skincare.

DSC_0306.JPG

Much like the Olive Brightening sheet mask, this one did also burn my skin a bit. Regardless of the alcohol, it did hydrate my skin because of the cranberry seed oil. This particular mask really felt like the most luxurious out of the bunch.

Final thoughts: my favorites out of this bunch is the Amino Moisture Mask and the AC Clear Treatment Mask. Both have given me such significant results, and I know for a fact I will be purchasing these two again!

You can purchase all of the sheet masks here on Sokoglam!

Please let me know which ones you try! I can’t wait to hear your thoughts.

I was gifted the sheet masks from Sokoglam, but all opinions are my own. Thank you for reading & take care!  – xoxo, Annie.
