From the very first selfie up through today, different social media trends have popped up every few days (remember those #ducklips selfies you used to take?). The latest trend? Face sheet mask selfies.

Why face sheet masks are trending right now

Aside from popularizing the "Silence of the Lambs"-like look from the 1970s horror film, sheet masks today host a myriad of ingredients including, but not limited to: antioxidants, collagen and snake venom.

So why are these simple, yet slimy, wet skin care products making such a storm on social media? Blame it on the celebrities. Everyone from Jessica Alba to Lady Gaga, and Fan Bingbing have been sporting these masks both in private and in the public eye.

The Korean beauty mask has become a popular item for reviving the skin after a long day or a big night out. What's in these little guys and what makes them a Saturday night staple?

What ingredients are in face sheet masks?

There's a reason that so many let their faces emolliate in these serum-soaked cotton masks. These beauties are chock-full of nutrients that hydrate, firm, tighten and brighten your complexion!


Being a protein that helps skin our skin plump and firm, this is an important ingredient to invite our skin to drink up. Our faces aren't the only things that need love—those spaces right below your eyes deserve some attention too. BeautyPro Eye Therapy Under Eye Mask With Collagen and Green Tea wakes up your tired eyes and reduces the look of fine lines, wrinkles and dark circles. Aloe Vera helps to hydrate and eliminate puffiness, leaving your eyes with an overall rejuvenated contour and feel.

Vitamin B5

This little gem helps to improve your skin's elasticity by stabilizing its defensive barrier and preventing the loss of moisture. The provitamin can also help reduce redness and irritation, leaving your skin feeling calm and soothed. Need an evening refresher? Try the Erno Laszlo Hydra-Therapy Skin Vitality Mask with zinc oxide and allatonin that works with vitamin B5 to calm and restore the skin to a blissful state. This mask also delivers an intense amount of hydration to the skin, ensuring it feels plump, supple, and relaxed.

If it's been awhile since your last selfie spa night, it might be time for a sheet mask. Check out these amazing favorites on our lookfantastic website today!
