I have been using alot of these cheap sheet mask from Korean brand Dermal, basically you can find them at most Korean supermarkets, i found them at K-mart.
Since i used up one sheet per day, i tend to go for the cheaper mask. I think this brand is actually pretty good, it's made in korea and there's so many varieties. I like the Royal Jelly sheetmask because it's one of the most hydrating mask from this line, and believe me i have tried almost all of their varieties.
Overall review: 4/5, great value and specific the Royal Jelly is really hydrating.

After hearing all the rave about Kielh's deep cleansing mask i decided it's time to try it out (after N years i finally caved in). Everyone on the online review board said this mask is great for clearing out whiteheads however there is a tingly sensation when putting on the mask, and that's exactly how i felt. Believe me when i say i have tried a lot of masks of all different brand, so i thought i surely would not feel anything tingly that's for sensitives skin people, but not true at all. I don't consider my skin as sensitive, it's pretty resistant, so even when i put on the mask i could feel a sting. Here's my warning for the sensitive skin girls, you probably want to try it out with a sample size before purchasing the bigger bottle.
As for cleansing property, i think it does an okay job. I did noticed one time that there were whitehead floating up after i used this mask, it's either whiteheads or dead skin cells from washing off the mask, either case i think the mask is working. If you have to let me pick something bad about this mask then i would it's the price vs effectives. This mask is expensive around $33 canadian, surely you can say there are more expensive masks out there (Glam Glow supermud mask is definitely higher in price, but in terms of effectiveness i say Glam Glow is better). Kielh's mask lacks effectiveness what i mean is not every time you use the mask you clean out all of your pores, there are some whiteheads but not every time.
Overall rating: 3.5/5, mostly due to price and effectiveness, i think overall it's a good mask just not as magical like everyone else raved about it. Probably will not repurchase after i finish this giant bottle, the amount of product is a lot and that's a plus.

Before i would see constant acne/pimple forming one after another (there would be no break, every week i would get a pimple or two, it was frustrating no matter what product i used and nothing help, it was hormonal after all, so actually any skincare didn't help).
My favourites are the cucumber, green tea, and aloe one. They are simple and yet hydrating.
I am more hesistant to use the none standard one such as snake-syn, horse oil, milk, etc. they sound interesting to me and I have brought one of each just to try, however the majority of mask that I brought was the cucumber, aloe, green tea, honey. I think I have a total of more than 40 sheet mask from this brand of Collagen masks. One interesting favor that I have to mention is the Red Ginseng one, it smells just like the Red Ginseng and the scent is so long lasting, even after days that I have opened up the packaging, I would still smell it. I think Red Ginseng smells pretty good, and if you are like me, then you will like Red Ginseng sheet mask too :)
The masks that you see above if only a small portion of the masks that I have, I will review each brand when I have time. Or if anyone is super anxious about what other masks I have or what I think is the best sheet mask that I have tried, then leave a comment or message me, it's because I never receive any comments or message, I don't even know if anyone is reading this (*tear-drop* and yet I'm still writing.. haha)

This is a product that i got from the memebox vitamins serie probably 2 years ago, wow has it been that long? Anyways i never got the chance to review it.
At first when i saw and read the packaging i though it was going to a anti-aging plus brightening sun cream, it guess it does what it says it was just me who mis-interpreted. I though brightening in terms of helping with lightening skin or hyperpigmentation, but the brightening feature that this product has is more like a primer, it will make your skin more illuminate when you apply this sun lotion.
The SPF 38+ property of this lotion is not that high. As a sun block i would think 50 SPF is a must especially for summer, so that's why i use this mostly in winter.
The texture of this sun block is pretty nice, it's not oily and as soon as you apply it you will your skin probably a skin tone lighter and more illuminious, which i think is a really good feature of this product. At the end of day, i do see that i still get a bit oily around my t-zone, but i think that's normal for most of the moisturizer that i use.
Overall review: 3.5/5
The main disadvantages of this product is that the SPF is not high enough, also other than seeing it from memebox website i haven't seen this product being sold anywhere else. So it will be hard to purchase this sun block if you didn't get it from memebox or live in Korea.

Leader Insolution Tea Tree sheet mask
This was on sale at my local H-mart for $29.99 for 10 sheet mask originally for $40 or something, another reason why i brought it was because the sales lady said i could mix and match between the same price of the Leader Insolution sheet masks. Even though i mostly brought the tea tree mask, i still wanted to try out other kinds, so i brought an aloe one as well as a brightening one.
This is a really good mask especially for calming down acne or pimples, and i think this mask is also really hydrating. Even hours after using the mask, i could still see my skin being hydrated. The only slight downside is that this mask is on the pricer side, usually what i like to spend on mask is less than $2 per mask. Since i usually use sheet mask 5 times a week, so spending more than $2 per mask would get pretty expensive after a while. This mask is about $3 per mask, i think it's definitely worth the price, but it will be a mask that i will use everyday because it's a bit pricey.
Overall review: 4/5
Great mask for prevention and calming down acne. It is surprising hydrating and there's tons of serum in the package. If you don't have a budget or only use sheet mask occasionally then get this mask.
