Korean sheet masks for every skin type and skin condition

You probably already know what your skin type is. It could be dry, combination or oily.

But thanks to environmental factors, and lifestyle choices, your skin could be behaving in a way that is not typical to your skin type.

For example, you could have dry skin and be battling acne. Or you could have oily skin that is dehydrated. The latter is your skin condition. Your skin condition could change from day to day or week to week or even month to month.

So it's important to choose a sheet mask according to your skin type and condition. We've done the hard work for you to bring you the top sheet masks for each skin type and skin condition.

These are the ones truly loved and highly rated by your glass-skinned unnis rather than by marketing agencies, so you can trust they'll have your skin glowing in no time.


Try: Banobagi Vita Cocktail Foil Mask Aqua, $5.90

Quench thirsty skin with a blend of nine types of vitamins, mineral water and hydrolyzed collagen that, together, make skin hydrated and supple.

The foil-backed cotton sheets allow the essence to be deeply absorbed into the skin without any evaporation, while the adjustable upper and lower masks ensure that every part of the face is drenched in this deeply hydrating essence.

The result is glowing, hydrated skin that is healthy and has fewer flaky patches.


Try: The Ooozoo Face Energy Shot Mask, US$43.68 ($60.39)

User Regram week! Try out our Face Energy Shot Premium Black like @yumsylee. Fall in love with its great benefits especially with Black Ginseng! ・・・ 💥💥 #smotd @the_oozoo Face Energy Shot Premium Black Mask 💥💥 . Another #skintertainment mask from Oozoo. This mask comes with an active packed ampoule in a syringe to keep the ingredients as fresh as possible. Dual function - anti-wrinkle and hydration.. . I thought this was a black mask. Anyways, like any other Oozoo shot masks, you press down the syringe allowing the ingredients to mix. Insert the mixed ampoule into the cap located in the middle of the outside mask packaging. Make sure that the ampoule is evenly dispersed throughtout the mask by lightly pressing the pouch. Apply the mask.. . This is a microfiber sheet mask that is thin, velvety soft and smooth with a mesh liner. My favorite material after hydrogels. Essence is milky and smells perfumey. Fit was flawless. Adherence 💯. Love the cooling sensation. And also minty? 🤔 Removed it close to an hour. Essence absorbed quickly with no tackiness. Result is pretty basic - just hydration. Although it doesn't claim more than that other than anti-wrinkle. 😁.. .

Treat skin that has had too much sun, wind, travel or late nights at your desk to a potent mix of rare “black ingredients”: black ginseng, black pearl, black currant, black truffle, black bellflower root and germinated black rice.

Together they hydrate, soothe, strengthen skin and moisturise skin so it is refreshed and rejuvenated.

The skin nourishing goodness of these ingredients is preserved as an essence in a syringe and is to be added to the microfibre sheet just before you use it.


Try: Femmue Dream Glow Revitalize and Radiance Mask, US$61.30 ($84.75)

Add a glow to dull, lacklustre skin with this mask that draws on the antioxidant and healing properties of flowers to help heal, soothe and transform your skin.

The coconut-based bio-cellulose mask is drenched in gooey goodness that is packed with botanical ingredients along with niacinamide and hyaluronic acid so that it tackles dead skin and dullness while also absorbing excess oil.


Try: Dr Jart+ Cicapair Calming Mask

Skin that is easily irritated and prone to redness or itchiness will love this soothing mask that is packed with centella asiatica, which is known to soothe, cool and strengthen stressed, sensitised skin.

It helps restore damaged skin and strengthen the skin’s natural barrier so reduce inflammation.

Free of any nasties, it is ideal for those with sensitised or sensitive skin.


Try: Isoi Acni Dr 1st Speedy Mask

One of the traps that acne-sufferers commonly fall into is applying harsh ingredients that dry out pimples, creating an imbalance in the skin’s moisture content and re-triggering the acne.

It’s like crash dieting for your skin – it’s unhealthy and unsustainable.

Isoi is well-known in Korea for using luxe, natural ingredients, and their Acne Dr range will give your spotty skin the gentle coaxing it needs rather than beating it into submission.

It contains K-beauty’s hottest ingredient, Houttuynia Cordata as well as Tea Tree Oil to condition your skin.

It also packs a high dose of sea buckthorn extract, which contains large amounts of Vitamins C & E so that any pigmentation caused by pesky pimples is quickly erased.


Try: Pyunkang Yul 3-Step Mask Pack

Pyun kang yul Mask pack 5 sheet rp 225,000 This unique mask from Pyunkang Yul has three steps. First the obagi type Peeling Gel, which gently exfoliates removing dead skin cells and prepping skin for step two, the Essence Toner Mask. This sheet mask is made with the same fabric used in Pyunkang Yul’s ⅓ Cotton Pad, which is designed to deliver products to skin more effectively than the traditional versions by soaking up the liquid product and then releasing it back when pressed onto skin. The mask is soaked with Essence Toner, made up of 91.3% milk vecht root extract, full of antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, nutrient-boosting properties. Step three is the Balancing Gel which seals in all the goodness. This step strengthens skin’s elasticity and moisture barrier for long-lasting hydration. Great for all skin types, especially those dealing with trouble-prone, imbalanced skin. TO USE:  1. Spread Peeling Gel over wet skin and massage in a circular motion to remove dead skin cells and other impurities. Rinse well. 2. Apply Essence Toner Sheet Mask, adjusting around eyes and mouth. Enjoy 10-20 minutes of sheet masking. 3. Spread Balancing Gel, and then gently tap and press until gel is fully absorbed. #Pskbpyunkangyul #pskbmask #Pyunkangyul #jualPyunkangyul #Pyunkangyulkorea #Pyunkangyuloriginal #Pyunkangyulskincare #jualPyunkangyulkorea #jualPyunkangyuloriginal

Pyunkang Yul’s cult essence toner in sheet mask form? Yes, please.

For an oily-skinned girl, finding the right sheet mask can be a pain and a half. It seems like every mask out there is about keeping your skin plump and moisturized, but what if your skin is so oily it could be an energy source in itself?

Thankfully, Mediheal’s Tea Tree Care Solution Essential Mask EX has oil-controlling ingredients such as tea tree, witch hazel water and allantoin.

There are a million praises I could note for this mask but perhaps the clincher is that BTS’ J-Hope is a big fan of this mask, so if you want poreless skin like Hobi, look no further.


Try: Roundlab 1025 Dokdo Mask

2018 was ruled by boutique sheet masks.

While big names like Mediheal and Leaders Insolution still make up a giant portion of the market, most of the bestsellers were from small, lesser-known brands with a focus on natural, non-toxic ingredients.

One such brand is Roundlab. If your skin is feeling drier than the Sahara, Roundlab’s 1025 Dokdo Mask gives your skin a dose of hydration with the perfect concoction of hydrators including coconut fruit water, betaine and hyaluronic acid.

The other benefit is that this sheet mask is so light that it practically feels like second skin when you wear it.

If you love a good 2-for-1 deal, then this 2-step mask is for you. The first step is loaded with propolis, a K-beauty favourite for to rejuvenate skin, and the second is full of niacinamide.

Anyone who’s done even a basic Google search on getting rid of pigmentation knows that niacinamide is the brightening powerhouse you need in your routine.

The mask is made of thicker cotton material compared to your average sheet mask, and also has a perfect fit, so you don’t have to worry about it tearing or slipping off as you put it on.

Because of the high propolis content, you will see an instant glowing effect so this baby is great for special occasions when you need that lit from the inside look.


Try: AllNatural Organic Sheet Mask Houttuynia Cordata

Last year, K-beauty’s breakout star was a tongue twister of an ingredient called Houttuynia Cordata. Traditionally incorporated into Korean side dishes, this ingredient is known for powerful anti-aging properties.

It is loaded with strong antioxidants that fight off the free radicals that damage your DNA and contribute to fine lines and skin tone unevenness.

This mask by AllNatural, a boutique K-Beauty brand, flew off shelves in Korea and was rated one of the top sheet masks by Hwahae, Korea’s premiere beauty review app.
