Editor’s Picks: 12 of the Best Sheet Masks to Hydrate, Brighten and Soothe Your Skin

Holy sheet.

When sheet masks first made their way to North America, we were all obsessed (even to the point of documenting them with sheet mask selfies—remember those?!). After all, there’s nothing like the instant gratification of popping on a cool, wet mask and letting it flood your skin with moisture.

But hydration isn’t the only reason to love this skincare category. These masks—which are typically made of bamboo, cotton or cellulose and soaked in juicy serum—have gotten a lot more sophisticated in recent years.

The Skincare Edit Recommends

Now, we can choose from formulas that help with brightening, clearing, calming and plumping, thanks to ingredients like niacinamide, peptides, vitamin C and more. It’s also easier to avoid the stuff we don’t want, like fragrance and alcohol, which used to be commonplace when these products initially landed on the market. There are plenty of biodegradable options, too, which is especially important if you’re using sheet masks on a regular basis.

To help you pick your next sheet mask, I created this guide. Here are the best sheet masks on the market, why I chose them, and what you need to know about each one.
