Apply these stretchy, essence-soaked papers to the face, then lie back for 15 minutes. Don't rinse off the remaining liquid - massage and let the skin slowly absorb every last drop of moisture.

Beauty Diary Royal Jelly Mask (HK$115/10pcs)

This is really watery and did nothing to lock in moisture. Royal jelly is famous for its nourishing properties, but no such benefits were felt. Fail.

Beauty Mate Aloe Vera & Cereus Grandiflorus Moisturising Nano Mask (HK$89.90/7pcs)

Refreshing and, thankfully, almost scentless, these sheets are absolutely drenched in moisturising essence. Skin may feel a little tight immediately after but within an hour is wonderfully soft.

De Ganesh Green Tea Essence Mask (HK$58/6pcs)

Green tea essence helps to soothe the skin, while collagen and vitamin E add to the moisturising effect. But the essence is too sticky, and the floral scent too strong to enjoy the experience.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Mask (HK$89/5pcs)

This paper is fully soaked and soft. The essence is quite watery but not sticky at all. You'll have to wait for more than 30 minutes until it all sinks in. Then your skin feels wonderfully soft, smooth and deeply hydrated for a few days. The light aqua scent reminds one of the sea.

Sexy Look Moisturising Rose Mask (HK$68/5pcs)

These sheets, saturated with rose essence and fruit extracts, give the skin a tingling but invigorating sensation in the first few minutes. Cute packaging earns extra points.
