Sheet masks are having a moment, thanks, to the benefits they provide for the skin, not-to-mention the variety available and convenient packing. There is a sheet for everything- to brighten, tighten, hydrate or reduce large pores. You can also get an overnight sheet mask and use it as a quick-fix at a destination wedding where you are not likely to find a salon.
I had never heard the name of this Korean skincare brand Dearpacker, until I saw their sheet masks being sold on Nykaa. They were organic, reasonably priced and had some salubrious ingredients making them worthy of a try. Nykaa had a fabulous offer by which one could purchase seven masks for 500 rupees. Here’s my review of the seven sheet masks I purchased –
But before I apprise you about the characteristics of each of these sheet masks, I want to add that Dearpacker has surprised me and the masks are much better than what I had expected them to be. In fact, these masks beat the sephora ones both in terms of pricing and quality. It is commendable that Nykaa is adding such a wide variety of brands to its array.
1. Green Tea + Jasmine Flower
Green Tea – improves the overall appearance of the complexion and neutralises the damage done by exposure to UV rays.
Jasmine flower- has soothing and calming properties to diminish visible redness.
This was the first one I used and it did create an amazing first impression. It had a rejuvenating effect and added a fresh glow to the face, it is perfect to be used for any occasion especially when one has less time.
2. Lavender + Argan Oil
Lavender- restores essential moisture balance to soften skin and its relaxing aroma provides natural stress relief. Sm
Argan Oil- is rich in Vitamin E to deeply hydrate and nourish skin, delivering dewy glow.

This one had a moisturising effect. It is good for winters, when the skin gets dry and chapped.
3. Lab Collection Mask – Anti-Aging & Firming
The blend of active ingredients such as adenosine and almond oil improve elasticity, smoothen fine lines and wrinkles for a youthful glow.
I would recommend this one as a part of your facial care routine, not intended to give an immediate glow but helping to improve the texture of skin in long run.

Ideal for a cooling and rejuvenating effect.

This again should be used as a part of daily skin care regimen to prevent any breakouts or allergy.

Pea- stimulates the process of regeneration and gives skin firmness and elasticity.
Yogurt- effectively reduces roughness and lightens skin without drying out.
