Whoo hoo! Day 1 of my Sheet Mask Marathon. I’ll be highlighting some sheet masks that I’ve used during this week to show some of the many different options you have for sheet masks. For info about what’s going on, read my¬† intro here.

Etude House is a Korean brand that markets skincare products as well as makeup and even some accessories. They specialize in cute and pretty packaging. I’ve read that their demographic is more geared towards teens and young women, but I feel like a lot of women enjoy the princess feel from time to time.

I’ve been planning this week for quite some time and I’m so excited that it’s finally here! I feel like sheet masks are all so similar to each other that I don’t feel that a bunch of individual reviews are necessary.

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.

There’s even masks for your neck, hands, and feet. Seriously! Read more
