When it comes to sheet masks, this is not my first rodeo. I’m not quite sure how I managed before they became so easy to grab handfuls of on Amazon, but I know that my skin wouldn’t be the same if they disappeared back off to Korea without a second thought. I use them pretty much every other night after a micro-roller session. They cool and nourish skin, leaving it soft and clear for the morning, but until now, that’s where my sheet mask benefits have pretty much stayed. So when Rodial sent over their new Vit C Energising Masks, I was seriously excited!
Packaged in the line’s signature bright orange hue, each box comes with 4 masks – pretty much a month’s supply. Not bad considering each one makes you look like you’ve just enjoyed a pricey salon treatment! Each mask comes soaked in Vitamins C and B3 to boost skin’s radiance, target fine lines and even out skin tones, as well as Hyaluronic Acid for hydration and Green Tea to soothe and calm skin. These are perfect if you’re looking to add a little extra oomph to skin, or prior to a big event, so you can glow all evening long.
Personally, I’ve been using mine on a Sunday evening, to make sure my skin is prepped and primed for the week ahead. After a thorough cleanse, I pat skin dry, then apply the mask, letting it get to work for up to an hour if possible. Rodial recommends that you leave it on for 10-15 minutes, but I like to use a mask as a great excuse to kick back and catch up on some reading. Once I’m done, I massage any excess serum into my skin, then follow with my regular evening oil. The result is skin which looks clear and feels super smooth. The effect lasts for a good few days, and I’ve been topping up the effects, with other items in the Rodial Vit C lineup (like these pads which can be used nightly).
