This week's Saturday Sheet Mask Is the Andalou Instant Lift and Firm Hydro Serum Sheet Mask. I got this at Ulta it was $5 but it's on sale right now for $4.24 right now. I really like Andalou skin care in general. I've used the Q10 Night Cream for quite a while, it's lovely, and I feel like their price range is always good. This mask is "certified Organic". It has fruit stem cell complex and Reversatrol Q10 in it.
I'm going to leave some descriptions from the Ulta website as well as the ingredient deck:

My thoughts on the mask are that the sheet is super thin, I didn't like that at first because it didn't seem very "soft" on my skin like other masks. I feel like some people would prefer a thicker sheet, sometimes, because it tends to absorb and hold more serum in the cloth thus more product for your face. I quickly realized that it was very beneficial though because it easily contoured to my face and clung everywhere. It was actually so this and clung so much that it almost looked invisible on the skin. So I feel like my entire face was covered as good as it could be from any mask. It felt very cooling on the skin the entire time, almost cold. You can leave it on for 10 to 20 minutes. I left mine on for 10, as my skin was quite sensitive and the cold was a little uncomfortable at first. I hope they'll put out some more sheet masks because I really do like the thin mask that fits well, the price, and there's no artificial fragrance as an ingredient. As far as an "instant life and firm" I don't notice that all that much but I do feel like my skin looks brighter and definitely smoother both in texture and in appearance. So I guess since I can see that it's smoother you could say that it probably is more firm. My skin doesn't show terrible signs of wrinkles much so I don't know what it would do for that. My thought is: since it's not expensive and it's certified organic, I'd give it a go for sure. I've had some better masks but I really liked this and will probably buy more.
