It feels like the popularity of sheet masks has seriously soared over the last year or so, and I’m totally a sheet mask convert as I love how they force me to have some downtime. As a blogger it’s hard sometimes to step away from my laptop/phone and stop checking social media, emails and blog comments but when you’re wearing a sheet mask you have to relax and sit back as they tend to just slide straight off.
I like to reach for a sheet mask whenever I’m feeling stressed or overwhelmed, and give myself 30 minutes of doing nothing but chilling out whilst the mask works its magic and it always does my skin and mental wellbeing the power of good. The newest set of sheet masks within my skincare collection are the Sarah Chapman Skinesis 3D Moisture Infusion Masks.
Sarah Chapman is such a well loved skincare brand within the beauty community but I’ve only ever tried a sample of the Skinesis Overnight Facial which I got in a beauty box so I really feel like I’m missing out as everyone raves about the Sarah Chapman Skinesis skincare.
I hadn’t heard of the Sarah Chapman Skinesis 3D Moisture Infusion Masks before trying them so I assumed they were a new product, but they aren’t at all and they’ve even won an award so I’ve quite obviously been living under a rock. The Sarah Chapman Skinesis 3D Moisture Infusion Masks are a pack of four masks available from Cult Beauty for £43 which works out at £10.75 per mask which is definitely pricey for one use masks so I couldn’t wait to see if they were worth the price?!
Sarah Chapman says;
“The penetrative ability of the bio cellulose technology, together with our unique high performance formula gives exceptional hydration and plumping whilst soothing the skin. Until now 3D Moisture Infusion has been my well-kept trade secret used in clinical facials and peels in my clinic only.
This innovative therapeutic strength bio-cellulose mask envelops the face like a second skin to instantly hydrate, soothe and plump. Bio-cellulose science ensures superior absorption of our high performance serum to infuse skin with moisture and restore dull, dehydrated skin to a radiant luminous glow.
Our moisture complex of Pentavitin®, low molecular weight hyaluronic acid and rosewater creates a superior moisture bond to quench the skin with optimal hydration improving moisture retention for a fresh glowing complexion.
Skinasensyl™ Tetrapeptide, Defensil® Plus and our triple action multi-mineral energising complex of zinc, copper and magnesium combine to help optimise cell respiration, protect from glycation, relieve the appearance of redness and maximise the benefits of the active ingredients. Fragranced with a subtle hint of damask rose water.”
How to apply:
Apply to a cleansed face. Remove the mask from the foil sachet and unfold. The mask has three layers. Remove the outer protective layers. Smooth the mask layer over the entire face. Cover the eyes if required. Leave the mask on for 10-15 minutes.
Discard the mask and massage the remaining serum into the skin. Redness and dehydration are relieved; inflammation reduced and skin’s natural barrier restored improving compromised skin conditions. Fine lines and crepey faces appear smoother and hydration levels are increased for a dewy, fresh complexion.
When you peel open the packet and remove the sheet mask, it’s folded into quarters and is practically dripping in serum so I’d recommend keeping the packet upwards as there’s a lot of excess serum in the bottom of the packet which you can use post-mask.
It’s quite fiddly to remove the two outer protective layers to place the middle layer on the face, especially as it’s so saturated with serum but once you’ve removed the outer layers the mask is easy to get into the place as it has little slits on the outside so it fits the shape of the face very well. The eye holes are large enough that you can see whilst wearing the mask, but they cover the skin below your brows as well as your undereye area.
Although buying the Sarah Chapman Skinesis 3D Moisture Infusion Masks as a four pack for £43 is a pricey outlay, they’re £13.50 to purchase individually so it’s much better value purchasing the masks as a set of four especially as you’re guaranteed to want to try them more than once. At this kind of price they’re the type of mask I’d reserve for special occasions or for when my skin is in dire need of some TLC.
I am just getting over a really awful skin flare up which included blisters and hives, and ever since my skin has been the driest it’s ever been; I’d been applying serum multiple times a day like a face mask just to try and recoup some of the lost moisture and stop looking like some sort of snake shedding its dry skin – pleasant I know.
So are the Sarah Chapman Skinesis 3D Moisture Infusion Masks any good?! Most definitely yes. They are the most hydrating face masks I’ve ever tried and I couldn’t believe the difference in just one mask. So many times I’ve tried a face mask which has left my skin feeling lovely on removal, but the effects have been short lived but my skin’s dehydration is vastly improved by using these masks.
I’ve only used two out of the four, and my dryness is considerably better and my skin feels so much more comfortable. It no longer feels itchy and tight and I couldn’t be happier with the results.
It’s important to consider that each of these Sarah Chapman Skinesis 3D Moisture Infusion Masks contains 25ml of very high quality serum with powerful active ingredients and a bottle of high quality serum which are typically 15ml to 30ml is likely to be in excess of £30+ so at £10.75 when purchased as a four pack is amazing value especially as you have a considerable amount of left over serum within the packet which you can use morning and night the following day. You can probably tell I’m loving these masks, but I’d love to know if you have any other Sarah Chapman Skinesis recommendations as these masks are fantastic.
