Sheet masks are growing in popularity and it seems that every brand has a few in their range now. It was about a year ago that I came across the Orgaid brand at my local indie beauty shop Vim & Co Pharmacy. What caught my attention was that these masks were organic and natural, something that I hadn’t seen before from sheet masks. The packaging was grown up, the ingredients appealed to me and I liked the fact that they were cruelty free and biodegradable as well. Recently, Orgaid kindly sent me their Organic Sheet Mask Multi-Pack and new Organic Face Polish with Honey Crystal and Brown Rice to try so I wanted to consolidate my thoughts in this review.
Orgaid have three sheet masks in their range all designed by Dr Ian Baek who is a native of South Korea (i.e. the Mecca of sheet masks). He went against the grain and set out to create products using organic ingredients (a rarity in the sheet mask industry) and a delivery system that would aid in deeper absorption of the ingredients. All of the masks are made from Ecoderma fabric and they are seriously drenched in serum which any sheet mask aficionado would agree scores top points.
It’s hard to pick a favourite out of the three but I definitely feel like the Greek Yoghurt variety is the all rounder for when my skin is feeling dull and needs a good pick me up. It contains organic ingredients including, as the name would suggest, greek yoghurt, aloe vera, hyaluronic acid, pro-vitamin B5, green tea, chamomile, rosehip and more. I find this mask particularly calming and soothing.
I love me some Vitamin C so the Revitalising mask is right up my alley. I am a big fan of skincare that helps to brighten and make my skin look radiant and this sheet mask does just that. It contains vitamin c, hyaluronic acid, pomegranate, lemon, orange peel and it visibly wakes my skin up after I have used it. I prefer to use it at night due to its citrus content and I really like how it makes my skin look more alive.
The Anti-Ageing sheet mask is super hydrating and plumping with ingredients such as niacinamide, witch hazel, rosemary, hyaluronic acid, horsetail and rosemary. They help to hydrate the skin, moisturise and stimulate collagen production whilst soothing from irritation. If my skin is feeling thirsty or looking dry, I opt for this sheet mask and I find that it instantly plumps out my fine lines, albeit temporarily, but it’s a welcome effect!
The face polish was such a pleasant surprise! It comes out of the tube quite dry and you add water to it depending on how scrubby you want it to feel on the skin. The particles are so fine and remind me of a microdermabrasion texture, which I much prefer to large particles that can abrasive to the skin. My skin feels ridiculously smooth after using this face polish but especially after pairing it with one of the sheet masks. It allows me to buff away the dead skin cells which then helps the masks to work more deeply on freshly exfoliated skin.
I loved getting to know the Orgaid range a little bit better and sharing the results with you. Orgaid is widely available in Australia. I buy it locally at Vim & Co Pharmacy but it’s also available at lots of retailers online.
