THE IN-TRAY

The top 5 sheet masks according to the MECCA Chit Chat Facebook Group

With more time up our sleeves for serious self-care, it seems like entire world is turning to serum-soaked sheet masks (and rose quartz rollers, apparently) for a bit of indulgence amidst the unfamiliarity of self-isolation. With so many to choose from, we made it our mission to uncover the must-have masks, enlisting the help of our ever-growing and beauty obsessed community in the MECCA Chit Chat Facebook group. So, we set up a poll and let the results roll in—now we’re counting down the top five sheet masks, according to you.

Karuna Hydrating Face Mask

This exfoliating, sensitive skin-approved mask is made from biodegradable wood pulp that retains 50 percent more moisture than synthetic material, which ensures your pores fully absorb its nourishing, hydrating ingredients of natto, sodium hyaluronate, niacinamide and aloe. It’s proven to increase skin hydration by 40 percent in minutes, and can be used cold from the fridge for a refreshing experience, or even warmed for encouraged blood flow and compression. Chit Chat member Georgia likes to savour every last bit of serum from her favourite masks, so she’ll keep the sachet of excess serum in the fridge overnight for an extra hit of hydration in the morning.

Patchology Get Dewy With It Mega Moisture Sheet Mask

Designed for younger skin going through a skin shake up (anyone else suffering from iso skin right now? 🙋), this moisture-packed mask serves up a surge of hydration when and where you need it most. If dehydration is getting the best of you and your skin, skull a big cold glass of water and slip into this conditioning and revitalising hijiki algae-spiked mask. For the best possible results, Chit Chat member Claudia will use a chemical exfoliant “such as the Mecca Cosmetica Glow Giver Exfoliating Solution or Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peel right before to slough away dead skin and allow the serum goodness to soak in deeper.”

111SKIN Rose Gold Mask

It’s rose gold; need we say more? This NASA-level hydrogel sheet mask is infused with 24 karat gold, silk amino acids and damask rose extract to deeply replenish moisture, sooth and brighten skin, all while encouraging the skin’s own natural restorative processes. It’s every bit decadent as it is scientific, and we are here for it. Pop it on straight from the fridge for a neat cooling sensation (a hot tip from Chit Chat member Eloise), and glide it off for rose gold incandescence.

2

Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mask

Each and every Tatcha product is pure skin luxury, and their microfibre sheet masks are no exception. Enriched with a blend of Japanese anti-ageing superfoods like fermented green tea, rice and algae, this skin-replenishing, glow-inducing mask is a favourite for good reason. To aid in the best possible absorption of these delicious actives, Chit Chat member Lucy recommends applying an essence or mist pre-mask to prepare and dampen the skin.

Go-To

Voted the crème of the sheet mask crop by the MECCA Chit Chat community, Go-To’s Transformazing mask is the true MVP for an instant fix of glow, brightness and hydration. It’s drenched in natural botanicals like vitamin C-rich Kakadu plum and exfoliating finger lime, paired with some of our favourite actives, including niacinamide and hyadisine (a marine alternative to hyaluronic acid). Mask lovers Justyna and Rachael love to amplify the masking experience by gliding a rose quartz roller over their Go-To masks.
