Be moisturized, elastic, younger looking and bright… what if a 0.9$ makes you away from skin doctors? What if your skin becomes healthy and glowy with this “je ne sais quoi” reason?
One can easily find thousands of Chinese tourists buying hundreds of mask sheets in Seoul, the cosmetic paradise. Why is that so?
Happily in Korea, there are as many different types of masks as our skin problems. A quick solution open to everybody. Mask is no more a special treatment but a daily easy and quick skin care ritual.
The mask trend hit the global press by fashion and beauty magazine, with famous celebrities expose their mask face on instagram….
The mask trend is not a recent in Korea. It is rooted in our daily life, taught by mothers…. I remember my Mom did all kind of home-made masks with cucumber (to sooth), potato(relieve sunburn), egg (for smooth out rough skin), aloe (for deep hydration). And we’d do this every 2-3 days when I was adolescent.
The daily home recipe became massive thanks to the commercialization of the abundant sheet masks.
If mask category has been existing from all manufacturers under the form of jar or tube, it’s only since 10-15 years the sheet type masks launched in Korea and got popular first in Korea, in China and now…global. There are as much flavours, claims and fragrance you can imagine. Price-wise, one can pick a mask at 1000won (0.7 euro) to 20000won (around 15 euros). So this easy access to the product became quickly spread in Asia and now global. No wonder that top 10 best sellers at Tmall in China include small and big brands’ Korean mask! It is this undeniable creative choice and easiness of daily usage which led the mask category so popular.
Instead of having this eternal problem to choose the one…Korean women have chosen a better solution – 1 day 1 mask.There always is a mask for a certain problem. And our skin is evolving according to the monthly 28day cycle.
Texture, shape wise, there are simple ‘liquid soaked paper’ type, hydrogel type, eye mask, t-zone mask… Ingredient wise, there are simple green tea extracted masks, collagen injected, horse-oil extracted, snail mucus extracted, Ginseng extracted….
