Before an important day, what do you do to make yourself look good? There are basic beauty remedies like sleeping early and eating well, but we do sometimes reach the help of cosmetics, such as using high-concentrated ampules, exfoliating, and applying sheet masks. Whether it’s a blind date, or an interview, Korean women spend a lot of time the day before to look at their best the next day. This time around, we will introduce you to the top masks packs that Korean women use in case you can’t choose in front of a shelf full of masks packs. Let’s go!
01 Aritaum Essence Sheet Mask
推薦：Teatree, Hyaluronic Acid
Among the road shop brands, Aritaum is considered to have the best quality of sheet masks at a very affordable price of 1,000 won, equivalent to 7 HKD. Among many different options, the Tea Tree and Hyaluronic Acid sheet masks are the best sellers, which was also voted as the best sheet pack at a blind test on the country’s No.1 beauty show, Get it Beauty.
在眾多開架品牌當中，Aritaum可以說是其中品質最上乘的面膜產品，價格非常親民——大約1,000韓元，即相當於港幣7元。它有許多不同品種，其中茶樹和玻尿酸面膜最熱賣，亦是韓國No.1美容節目「Get it Beauty」投票盲選的最佳面膜。
02 Mediheal Sheet Mask
推薦：Teatree Care Solution Essence Mask, N.M.F Aquaring Ampoule Mask
This is the next runner-up in the mask pack market. Relatively new to the market, Mediheal’s mask packs are on the lips of beauty trendsetters at the moment. Available at Olive Young, the most popular drugstore in Korea, Mediheal’s mask packs are slightly expensive than those of road shop brands. Normally priced at 3,000 won, equivalent to 21 HKD, you can also get these at half the price during the drugstore’s big sales.
03 Animal Character Masks
推薦：SNP Face Art Mask, Niveola Animal Mask Pack
To stand out in the competitive beauty market, some brands have turned their eyes to the design of the mask packs. Brands such as SNP, Niveola, Berrisom and The Face Shop launched character masks with different animal prints on them. From a cute cat to a fierce tiger, you can transform into your favorite animal while getting pretty. In fact, this item is the hottest item on social media and among celebrities!
為了從競爭激烈的美妝品市場脫穎而出，一些品牌將焦點放在面膜設計上。品牌例如SNP、Niveola、Berrisom和The Face Shop都開設了有各式各樣動物印花的個性面膜系列。從一隻趣緻的貓到野性的老虎，如今你能在變美的同時化身為自己最喜愛的動物。事實上，這款炙手可熱的面膜產品風靡了社交媒體及眾多韓星！
04 Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze Mask
Innisfree’s mask pack has been a steady seller on the market, due to its eco-friendly brand image and affordable prices at 1,000 won, equivalent to 7 HKD. These masks packs are known for their suitability to any skin types with hypoallergenic formulas. Snatch a bunch of these on the next grand sale and you can get these at an even cheaper price!
05 Hushu All-in-one Dual Mask
This mask pack by Hushu is one of the best-selling items in the beauty market, especially among Chinese tourists. By using Hushu’s mask packs, you can achieve whitening, moisturizing, lifting, anti-wrinkle and V-line effects all at the same time. With a practical design that makes the mask hang around the ear, you will never have to worry about the mask pack falling down when using this product. This mask pack is a little bit expensive than the others introduced in this list, but it would be worth the price after you use it!
