I’m starting a series called ‘Get That Glorious Glow’. It’s a series of posts sharing with you tips on how to achieve dewy & glowy BARE skin.
So firstly, I’ll talk about… SHEEEEET MAAAASK!!!! They’re something that I’ve been doing 2-3 times a week. They are absolutely awesome, let me tell you why:
- They moisturize. My skin used to be dry and flaky, but now it’s amazingly soft and supple! Concealer used to cake up on my face between my skin flakes, but it applies so smoothly now.
- They are so relaxing! The scent, the cooling effect and the fact that you have an excuse to just chill for 20 minutes
- Contain different active ingredients to brighten, nourish, moisturize etc. Take your pick!
Well, enough of the reasons, let me show you some masks that I have been enjoying!
Etude house therapy air mask
Contains rose extract and niacinamide, which helps to whiten skin. Use for brightening and moisturizing effect. This mask is a comfortable cotton that clings to the face. It has a mild scent, very relaxing in my opinion. Out of all the ingredient choices, the lemon and Rose masks have the best effects on me. My skin becomes significantly brighter after using them.
Ingredients list on CosDNA, has nothing that particularly scares me.
Would I purchase again? Yes, these masks are affordable enough to use daily and produces results!
Klairs rich moist soothing mask
This Klair’s masks has a luxurious thick cotton, soaked in creamy and thick essence. It’s definitely more luxurious than your normal everyday brands like Etude House or Innisfree. This mask provides immense hydration and the next morning, I have a natural and beautiful glow! I purchased them on Wishtrend: 25 for USD23.48. Best price I’ve seen so far!
(Ingredients on CosDNA).
Would I purchase again? YES! It’s a higher-end mask at an affordable price and I love it!
Shelim Ultrahydrating essence mask
This Shelim mask has a thin cotton sheet that adheres tightly to the face. The essence is however quite watery and dries out quite quickly. It’s very cooling upon application, and quite moisturizing. It’s not the best mask, but it’s affordable (AUD$1.60).
Would I purchase this again? Probably not, I’d rather get the Etude House Therapy Air mask, since they’re about the same price!
Welcos Jeju natural volcanic mask
This is another everyday type of mask. It says for ‘pore care & sebum control’. It doesn’t really decrease pore size or control sebum, but it is very moisturizing! The only thing with this is that it contains parabens – and that’s something I try to avoid in my skincare products.
(Ingredients list on CosDNA).
Would I purchase again? No, because it contains prabens. What a pity, because this is such an affordable mask, which comes with sooooo much essence, and also moisturizes my skin very well.
Etude House 24K Gold Therapy Black Pearl Mask
Hydrogel maks are awesome because you can leave it on your face longer (the essence does not evaporate as quickly) and also they fit better on my face. This Etude House one comes soaked in so much essence you can actually wash the mask then soak it again for a second use. I like how lightweight the essence feels, and how quickly it absorbs into my skin. It’s also very cooling upon application. But I don’t really see my skin brightening after using this mask. It’s sold on ebay for AUD$5.41 (quite pricey for one time use).

Would I purchase again? No, honestly, it’s not the best brightening mask out there. The Lemon Therapy Air Mask from Etude House has better effects than this. I only love this for its hydrogel material and cooling effect.
