Saturday Skin are a Korean skincare brand with their range being developed out of cutting-edge research, created by scientists at Chaum, a renowned wellness centre in Seoul, South Korea and can be found on Cult Beauty. I had never heard of Saturday Skin but face masks in my opinion are always a good starting product when trying a new brand so I couldn’t wait to try the Saturday Skin Spotlight Brightening Masks. The key to Saturday Skin is the “Cha-7 es Complex”, an exclusive peptide formula that promotes skin’s natural regeneration process to reveal your clearest, dewiest complexion yet.
The Saturday Skin Spotlight Brightening Masks can be purchased individually for £4.60, or as a set of five for £23. I really like it when brands offer individual masks as well as a set so you can purchase one to try to see if you like it before committing to a set of five. If the Spotlight Brightening Masks don’t appeal, Cult Beauty also stock the Saturday Skin Quench Intense Hydration Masks too.
“Make your skin look lit from within with Saturday Skin’s Spotlight Brightening Masks, fresh from the world’s ‘sk-innovation’ capital – and spiritual home of the sheet mask – South Korea. Crafted from ultra-light bio-cellulose material, this sheet mask adheres fully to your face to infuse skin cells with nutrients – it clings so well that you’ll forget you even have it on.
Each mask is enriched with an ‘essence’ starring brightening bilberry, liquorice and lotus extracts, as well as uplifting citrus oils (including lemon and grapefruit) and lavender and rosemary extracts, all of which work to diminish dark spots and reveal even radiance. Available in a pack of one or five, simply leave your sheet mask on for 20 minutes then peel off to uncover a heavenly, hydrated glow.“
The Saturday Skin Spotlight Brightening Masks are dripping in serum so I would recommend, before opening the sachet, using your fingers to squeeze some of the serum from the mask down into the bottom of the sachet just to remove some of the excess product.
By doing this, the mask is still saturated in serum but you can then reuse the serum at the bottom of the pack without wasting any. I tipped the remaining serum into a little plastic pot which I got in a really cheap 10 piece set from eBay for decanting products, and I can use the remaining serum for at least three days post-mask so the value for the money per mask is pretty good indeed as you get the initial benefits of wearing the mask as well as the excess serum.
The mesh of the mask sits nicely on the skin with decent holes for the eyes and mouth as well as a little flap for the nose. I did read a few reviews prior to trying the mask where people commented on the mask being too small, but I haven’t noticed that to be an issue at all but you could easily remedy that by making the holes a little bigger or wider depending on your face shape.
Whilst on the face, the Saturday Skin Spotlight Brightening Masks feel extremely refreshing and soothing, and I imagine would feel delightful following a day in the sun especially if kept in the fridge before use. They leave my skin feeling very soft, smooth and supple and more importantly my dull complexion is instantly more radiant. So many skincare products claim to brighten, and some do but the results are short lived but the brightening effects of these masks lasts for a couple of days so they’re ideal for when you have a special event or occasion where you want your skin to look its best.
Everyone raves about the Garnier sheet masks which are £3 each, but they are not even remotely as effective as the Saturday Skin Spotlight Brightening Masks, which work out at just £4.60 each and contain much higher quality ingredients. I’d much rather pay another £1.60 for one of these masks which give much more noticeable and longlasting benefits and they give you an amazing serum to use for the days following the mask too.
I would love to know if you’ve ever tried Saturday Skin? Are you a sheet mask fiend?
