When it comes to sheet face masks the Koreans are at the for front! I got chatting to the_lacquerati on Facebook and she so kindly offered to send me one to try out.
The one that she sent me was from MJ Care and was the Daily Dewy Bee Venom Sheet Mask. My first thought was "Bee Venom really?!?!?" But on doing some research it is fast becoming the sort after ingredient in beauty. The Bee venom tricks the body into thinking you have been strung and increases blood flow to the top layers of the skin. This is clinically proven to stimulate the production of collagen and improve the elasticity of the skin improving the appearance of wrinkles. It also has been clinically proven to reduce the effects of menopause on the face.
The mask is also packed with jojoba, aloe and witch hazel and these are all fab at hydrating the skin and killing the bacteria that are the main causes of acne and black heads. So all in all this mask was perfect for my combination acne prone skin.
The mask was a tad tricky to unfold but it is made from 100% cotton so it is quite robust and I didn't tear it with my clumsy hands! I cleansed my face and applied the mask and left it in place for 20 minute. Once that time had elapsed it was suggested to me that I squeeze the remaining essence from the mask and massage this into the skin and allow to soak in to get the maximum effects from the mask.

After wards my skin felt amazing!!!! Really plump and smooth and I have noticed that even in the few days that followed my skin continued to improve and I have noticed that a few spots I did have have reduced in size and from a single use this was amazing results.
These masks are available from sites such as eBay and Amazon. There is also a specialist Korean cosmetics website based here in the UK. I know that I will be stocking up on these as the quality and results have been astounding.
