Best K Beauty Sheet Masks For Every Skin TypePosted on 14/11/2019
If you’ve ever purchased (or tried to purchase) a sheet mask before, you know that there are so many variations to choose from. It can be overwhelming. Most Korean beauty brands will have their own range of sheet masks. Within that range there will be a at least a couple of different types of masks, all with their own benefits for your skin. Different skin types and concerns have different needs, so how do you know which mask is for you? We’re here to help! Here are our recommendations for the best Korean beauty sheet masks for every skin type!

If you have sensitive skin, you’re in luck! Many Korean beauty brands create masks specifically for you. Fragrance free, clinically tested and formulated without any irritating ingredients – there’s a whole range for you to pick from.
Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Tencel Sheet Mask helps reduce redness, calm inflammations as well as soothe irritations. The sheet is made of 100% cotton and tencel to minimise irritation. Key ingredients include Aloe Vera, Ceramide and Centella Asiatica Extract, all of which repair, strengthen, hydrate and relax your skin.
Another top pick is the Dr Jart+ Dermask Soothing Hydra Solution Facial Mask. This mask deeply hydrates, protects and conditions sensitive skin using botanical ingredients, including Aloe Vera. It also improves moisture retention, keeping your skin fresh and plump.
These recommendations help target skin concerns of redness, wrinkles and dehydration.
Acne Prone Skin
An effective treatment for acne and acne scarring is Snail Mucin. If you have acne prone skin, we highly recommend the Benton Snail Bee High Content Mask Pack. This sheet mask will not only heal your acne fast, but repair the damage to your skin due to acne as well as external stressors. Snail Mucin is also great for anti-ageing, keeping your skin elastic and youthful. Additional Green Tea will calm the inflammations whilst Bee Venom plumps your skin.
If you’re not really into Snail Mucin, Pyunkang Yul have their Acne Dressing Mask Pack which targets specific areas of your face that are stressed from acne. Using Willow Bark Water and Hyaluronic Acid, this mask pack clears acne with BHA whilst balancing your skin by replenishing moisture, thus helping to prevent further breakouts.
Alternatively, any of the Papa Recipe Bombee Masks are also great choices for acne prone skin due to high concentrations of Manuka Honey and Propolis Extract.
These recommendations help target skin concerns of ageing, acne, wrinkles, pores and scarring.
Whilst all sheet masks deliver hydration to your skin, there are also certain masks that specifically combat dry skin types. They generally contain ingredients that give your skin a powerful moisture surge in addition to improving your skin’s ability to retain this moisture. One of our top recommendations for dry skin is the Dr Jart+ Ceramidin Facial Mask. This mask quenches your skin’s thirst by nourishing it with 5 types of Ceramides, Panthenol and Aloe Vera. Your skin barrier will also be strengthened.
Likewise, the Helloskin Jumiso Water Splash Mask uses Ceramide, Triple Hyaluronic Acid and Shea Butter to minimise fine lines, enhance skin suppleness as well as deeply moisturise your skin.
Additionally, our A’pieu sheet masks are great options for dry skin and for targeting dehydration.
These recommendations help target skin concerns of ageing, wrinkles, rough / flaky skin and dehydration.
When it comes to oily skin, masks that hydrate but also contain ingredients with sebum absorbing abilities are the best. Maintaining hydration while removing the excess sebum on your skin is key to your skin not overproducing sebum to moisturise itself. A favourite of ours which does exactly that is the Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Sheet Mask. Using Bamboo Charcoal Powder, Centella Asiatica Extract and Willow Bark Water, this mask leaves your skin calm, fresh as well as hydrated.
Another favourite is the Pyunkang Yul 3 Step Mask Pack. The Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner is great for oily, acne prone skin so it makes sense that the essence toner mask is equally as amazing. It provides a deep hydration that is not heavy and helps minimise the appearance of enlarged pores.
These recommendations help target skin concerns of wrinkles, pores and acne.
Balance is key for those with an oily T zone and dry U zone aka combination skin. The Papa Recipe Bombee Rose Gold Honey Mask contains Rose Water which gives your skin refreshing hydration while delivering an abundance of nutrients. Manuka Honey helps clear any acne and unclog pores on the oily areas in addition to moisturising the dry areas.
Probiotics in the A’pieu Real Big Yogurt One-Bottle Strawberry restore your skin’s pH balance, thus preventing your skin from feeling too dry or oily.
Our Etude House 0.2 Therapy Air Mask collection all suit combination skin too and are particularly great for those new to Korean beauty.
These recommendations help target skin concerns of dehydration and dullness.
If your skin type is normal, ultimately, most sheet masks will suit you and you will rarely experience skin irritations from masking. Our suggestion for those who have normal skin is to use sheet masks that treat your main skin concerns.
No matter what your skin type or concerns are, guaranteed there’s a sheet mask out there for you! The above recommendations are just our opinion on the best Korean beauty sheet masks for every skin type. It’s important to remember that everyone’s skin is unique. Whilst they are our top picks, you may personally find other sheet masks work better for you. The fun part is testing a range of masks out so you can determine what your skin loves most 😉. Masking is also a form of self care that we greatly encourage here at Let’s Face It!
