SHE Picks: Our favourite sheet masks for all skin types

2
One trend that's taken the beauty market by storm is the use of sheet masks. Nicknamed the 'lazy girl facial', sheet masks first made their way from Asia to North America, and ever since, they've become a staple in many people's skincare routine. The masks are typically made from cotton, which is cut into a sheet that is meant to fit the contours of the face. The masks are soaked in serums or creams that aids in hydrating and nourishing the skin. The work week has just started but with the gloomy weather outside, we all feel the need for that something extra to make our skin look brighter than we actually feel. Here is a look at some of our favourite brands that carry amazing sheets masks for an affordable price:   Sephora
