Sheet Mask Marathon Day 8–Skin Factory Real Honey Moisturizing Ampoule Mask

Yay! It’s day eight of my Sheet Mask Marathon! This is the last day of the featured sheet masks! I hope you enjoyed seeing different types and textures of masks and maybe even placed some orders of your own to try. Tomorrow wraps up the marathon and also features a fun surprise so I hope you’ll stay tuned! If you need to catch up, you can check out the intro here. After that, see the other days:

Day 1 (featuring Etude House Tea Tree),

Day 2 (featuring Nature Republic Snail),

Day 3 (featuring Mediheal WHP Charcoal and Mineral),

Day 4 (featuring Vandeo Marine Algae),

Day 5 (featuring My Beauty Diary Diamond & Caviar),

Day 6 (featuring Freeset Donkey Milk Healing),

and Day 7 (featuring Annie’s Way Seaweed).

Day 8 is all about Skin Factory’s Real Honey Moisturizing Ampoule Mask. Honey has been known as an anti-inflammatory and to help with infection, making it great for acne sufferers (like me). This is my first Skin Factory product but they claim to be “the #1 humanist brand” because they use the “best ingredients”. They also have a “five-free” line which is free of colorants, parabens, pigments, ethanol, and mineral oil.

It was after this thought that my Sheet Mask Marathon was born and I decided to devote a week to sheet masks! I’ll be looking at just a few types of sheet masks, brands, and ingredients.

Sheet masks hail from Korea where they first grew popularity. They’ve since come to the West where even celebrities are posting selfies using their favorite sheet masks (see Lady Gaga and Demi Moore below). Most of these masks are cotton sheets packed in essence, but there are many different types popping up now that could still be considered sheet mask: hydrogel, bio-cellular, and more. There’s even masks for your neck, hands, and feet. Seriously! Read more

Before we really start diving into the glorious world of East Asian beauty, let’s discuss what exactly that entails. South Korea is considered the forefront of skin and beauty right now while the Western world sadly lags behind (but we’re picking up some ideas!). Natural ingredients free of parabens and fillers coupled with beautiful or cute packaging are the standard. Korean ladies expect bang for their buck and because they are so meticulous about what they use on their skin, companies are constantly innovating their products. Read more
