Sheet Happens | July 2017 box

Sheet Happens July box

I have been having major problems with acne on my cheeks and jawline the last couple of months and I have been so frustrated because I don’t know why I’ve been having these skin issues. It’s extra frustrating because I never really suffered from acne when I was a teenager, so having skin issues when you’re an adult and supposed to be past that stage is very frustrating.

I think I have been able to pinpoint my acne to allergies and stress. I have noticed that hydrating and calming products help a lot so I have literally been dousing myself in facial moisturizers and aloe. When I want to give my skin that extra shot of hydration, I personally love to use a sheet mask. I really love me a good sheet mask so when I heard about the Sheet Happens subscription box, I was so excited!

It’s a monthly subscription box full of sheet masks that is available in Sweden and Europe. You’ll receive a box of 8-10 sheet masks every month from big Korean brands like Holika Holika and Dr. Jart + among others. They ship the boxes around the 25th of every month. I’m really obsessed with sheet masks as I love how my skin feels hydrated and plump after using them. I may have oily combination skin, but my skin feels best when it’s deeply hydrated, and that’s something I feel sheet masks are really good at. This is my first box from them so I can’t give you a overall review of the subscription box, but I’ll show you the masks I got in my July box and how I liked them.

The July box contained 9 different sheet masks:

Not pictured above is the Holika Holika Pig nose Clear Blackhead 3-step Kit. I used that mask as soon as I opened the box. I couldn’t contain myself. Sorry, not sorry.

My favorite masks in the July box had to be:
  • Aprilskin Magic Snow Mask
  • Skinfood Hydro Fitting Snail Mask
  • Dr. Jart + Dermask Water Jet Soothing Hydra Solution
  • Mediheal N.M.F Aquaring Ampoule Mask
  • Holika Holika Pig Nose Clear Blackhead 3-step Kit

I feel like these five masks above helped me achieve that plump, hydrated and cool feeling that feels so amazing (except for the Holika Holika mask of course). I really love that cold sensation and how your skin feels tight because it’s so plump and hydrated. My skin looked good afterwards and I feel like it helped diminish my breakouts a bit.

Out of these four masks the Dr. Jart + one was by far the best. I had never used a sheet mask made from cellulose fiber before, but as soon as I applied the mask I realized that it was my new favorite kind of sheet mask. It felt amazing and it felt like that type of fiber better helped my skin absorb all the serum. I’m a bit obsessed actually and I will definitely be purchasing more Dr Jart + sheet masks in the future.

I liked the Holika Holika 3-step blackhead strip, because it didn’t break me out. Usually pore strips cause my pores to become inflamed and I break out in cystic, painful acne. Not cute. But this 3-step kit contained a strip with serum to open up the pores, and a strip with serum to close them so I feel like that is what helped me not to break out.

The other four sheet masks weren’t bad but they weren’t great either. They basically did nothing for me. Even so, I cannot wait for my next subscription box to arrive! All in all I was very pleased with my July box. I mean, even if a sheet mask did nothing for my skin, it still felt nice and gave me some time to just relax and enjoy myself.
