One of my major skin-care projects during the stay-at-home order that’s been in effect in New York since March has been to work my way through the collection of sheet masks that’s been piling up under my bathroom sink. By finally forcing myself to take 20 minutes to mask and chill, I’ve found some new faves, including the Looks & Meii Brightening Lift Up Perfect Fit Mask.
Looks & Meii is a K-beauty brand that recently launched in the U.S., and the fun, illustrated packaging on the mask is what first made it stand out when I was picking a mask to do on a random Tuesday night. But pretty packaging means nothing if what’s inside is garbage —that’s certainly not the case with this one.
The mask itself is made of a super stretchy material — like, as stretchy as the XL twin jersey sheets I bought for college — which I love because it helps the mask actually stick to my face, instead of sliding down should I dare to move while I have it on. Another thing that helps the mask stick: It’s soaked in just the right amount of serum. The main ingredients in the serum are niacinamide and vitamin C, which can both help brighten the skin. It also contains a bunch of floral and plant extracts, which I assume is what gives the mask its nice, light, fresh scent.
Immediately after I removed the mask, my skin looked incredibly glowy and a little bit brighter than before. Sometimes, I find I have to let the serum from a sheet mask absorb until my face is totally dry before I can seal it in with a cream (otherwise both products break up and pill) but this one played nicely with all my usual nighttime products. It’s definitely one I’ll be reaching for again.
