Vancouver’s winter weather has been… well, somewhat unpredictable. But there’s one thing we know for sure — the cold is not good for your skin. It can cause dryness and lead to redness or itchiness. Nobody likes to feel like an itchy tomato, and it’s just not a good look outside of Halloween.
So how does one achieve the dream of healthy, radiant skin?
By now, you’ve probably tried a couple of cleansers and DIY face masks, only to be left dissatisfied with the results (and used half of the ingredients in your cupboard in the process). Don’t worry, you won’t have to endure that ever again because Canadian beauty brand Beautella has designed an extensive range of unrivalled face care products — for all skin types and problems.
We wanted to see what all the fuss was about, so we tried Beautella’s seven-day Korean sheet mask challenge, using seven different results-driven masks within a week. Here’s how it went and the results we achieved from daily facial TLC.
Day one: The first step
Adding a new element to your daily skincare routine can feel like the hardest thing. But with Beautella, it’s simple. The first step involves honing the skill of applying the face masks. These masks are thin, translucent and adhere to your skin compactly — this tightness is the key to delivering nutrition to the skin without any essence dripping. It took us a couple of times to get the mask on right. Practice makes perfect!
Day two and three: Feel the lift
The best thing about this sheet face mask challenge is that you can wear the masks while you’re watching Game of Thrones, reading a book, or doing online shopping. Feel the skin lifting and cooling effect as Beautella masks naturally lift the skin while the essence is being absorbed and dried. The cooling temperature of around -6°C also minimizes pores which is a major plus.
Day four and five: Start to notice the difference
By the time the fourth day rolls around, you’ll be feeling the benefits of Beautella’s luxurious and scientifically-tested sheet face masks. As well as this, your skin will start to have an amazing “airbrushed” appearance, so you can say goodbye to using those Instagram filters.
Day six: Order your next set of face masks
Trust us when we say that, six-days in, you’re going to want to keep your new skincare ritual going. Based on the results we achieved at this point, we were satisfied to continue with another Beautella challenge the following week. Bonus: The brand swaps masks every month for a different set so you’ll never get bored with the same ones.
Day seven: Finish and review
You feel an amazing sense of accomplishment when you make it to the end of a trial, and Beautella’s seven-day sheet face mask challenge is no exception. After the seventh day, our skin appeared healthy, glowing, and dewy — exactly what we had hoped for.
When you’re doing the challenge, you can post a daily selfie wearing the sheet mask on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook, and challenge at least three of your friends to join you by using the hashtags #beautella7daychallenge and #repiel7daychallenge. Make sure to take part in the challenge before it ends on Sunday, March 31!
