Today’s review is an overview of my “Kati’s hall of fame” – my top 10 sheet masks of all times! Actually there are 9 sheet masks and 1 patch treatment. I will group these in 5 categories: best hydrogels, best prepping masks, best ultra-hydrating sheet masks, best purifying masks and best anti-aging masks.
You can read the ingredient lists and quick sum up on each mask in this post. If you click on the name you will be redirected to places where I usually buy mine from. I also included the prices per 1 piece. Coming days I will be also gradually adding the individual reviews about each product listed in this post 🙂
An absolute favorite of mine in the category of hydrogels is a Sampar H2O ‘Emergency’ Mask. This mask claims to hydrate your skin for 72 hours and it does! It is packed with amazing ingredients and it smells of roses. A definite must-try product.

Another great hydrogel product is made by the Skinfood. They have and entire line of Real Tea Gel masks with different scents and actions which are all doing a good job but my favorite is the lavender one. The scent is very relaxing and it plumps my skin in no time. It also clears out my pigmentation spots extremely well.

Best prepping masks
What can be most annoying than sliding around make-up? Unfortunately a lot of sheet masks contain a lot of oils in the ingredients and leave a film on the skin that make-up just doesnt adhere to. Here I have 2 great products that transform your skin and deliver excellent make-up base. My all time fave is the Super Aqua Pore-Kling Bubble Sheet mask. It removes all the excess of dirt and oil off my skin making my make-up last me the entire day!
Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Methylpropanediol, Niacinamide, Cellulose Gum, PotassiumAlginate, Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Fruit Extract, Citrus Aurantifolia (Lime) Fruit Extract, Myrciaria Dubia Fruit Extract, Mentha Rotundifolia Leaf Extract, Water (Carbonated Water), Tocopheryl Acetate, Polysorbate 20, Panthenol, Adenosine,1,2-Hexanediol, Propanediol, Caprylyl Glycol, lllicium Verum (Anise) Fruit Extract Chlorphenesin, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance
Newest favorite of mine is the #Primer Facial Mask by bioBelle. This one is the bomb if your skin is red, dry, patchy and you have only little time to do something about it before you have to run out to an event! I don’t know what sorcery they use but it works like a charm!!!

Best anti-aging masks
My nr 1 anti-aging “slap on – remove – you’re good to go” product is the Freeze and Smooth neck mask by Rodial. And I don’t use it on my neck but on my forehead where I have 2 deep wrinkles that make me look like grumpy old lady. Excellent results in reducing the depth of wrinkles and toning the skin around them. I wish it would come out in a face mask option. If oyu can’t get this specific one, a good alternative is the – Rodial Glamtox Firm and Tone Neck Mask – 7$
