Tell us more…
The global sheet mask movement shows no sign of abating but the brains behind some of the industry’s coolest brands have taken the technology one step further and unveiled a whole new category, the dry sheet mask. Where traditional wet masks are around 85% water, their dry counterparts are said to contain a whopping 94% active ingredients, making them a fast-track solution for filter-worthy skin. Make-up maven Charlotte Tilbury led the way with the launch of her Dry Sheet Mask last spring, and since then others have quickly followed suit.
What makes them different?
Unlike typical sheet masks, these new-gen versions use a clever dry delivery system that allows for micro-penetration of the active ingredients.

The result? A smoother, tighter and more radiant complexion.
