New Canadian skin care line, MaskerAide has launched their first line of super hydrating, and totally chic, sheet masks. Combining ridiculously cute packaging (seriously, check out all of the graphics) and high quality ingredients such as Argan Oil, Vitamin E and Green Tea, MaskerAide has tailored their masks for a combination of skin types and fabulous women (the partier, the business woman, the aging diva).
For those who may be scratching their heads wondering "umm...what is a sheet mask?", MaskerAide explains:
"A sheet mask is a special type of face mask made from a thin fibre sheet that is cut to the contours of the face and is soaked in serum. When worn on the face, the mask incubates the ingredients helping them to soak into the skin, while its cooling effect stimulates blood flow and relaxes facial muscles. As well, the functionality of the sheet mask design makes them easy to use and mess free"
To help women combat dry, damaged skin, each MaskerAide mask is soaked in 'a highly concentrated Argan Oil based serum' which helps moisturize and smooth the face. Each mask is made with a 'special mix of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and nutrients to ensure that each mask is truly unique and targets the specific skin care concerns' of everyone who uses them.
All MaskerAide masks are free of parabens, harsh dyes and chemicals, artificial fragrances, glycerine, mineral oil, and benzophenone. They are also eco-friendly, vegan friendly and biodegradable.
The MaskerAide line consists of the following six sheet masks:

My Initial Thoughts:
While I haven't had a chance to try all six masks, the ones my sister and I have tried, really impressed me. Not only is the packaging out of this world (have you seen the attention to detail?), the masks themselves are super thick and absolutely drenched in luxurious feeling ingredients. I do plan on testing all six sheet masks, and will be sure to post a more detailed review soon.
Have you tried sheet masks before? Do you want to? Which of the MaskerAide masks is your skin craving most? Be sure to let me know in the comment section below.
