I Went To A K-Beauty Mask Bar And This Is What I Got


Hey everyone and happy Sunday! I've been loving the beautiful weather we've been having in NYC this weekend. Yesterday I had brunch outside with Julia and sat in the park with Sally flipping through all of the September issues of this year. Anyway, earlier this week my friend Devon brought me to this place in the West Village called The Mask Bar, which specializes in K-Beauty face masks. I am certainly aware of the hype of K-Beauty but haven't gotten to try too much for myself so I wanted to pick up a few things and see what I thought about them! Read my thoughts below and let me know if you've ever tried any of these masks or anything similar in the comments!

1. TonyMoly I'm Real Lemon Brightening Mask Sheet

When I pulled this mask out, I was immediately overwhelmed by the smell of lemons, which I wasn't mad about. It feels like any other sheet mask and you leave it on for 20-30 minutes. This one is meant to brighten, and when I woke up the morning after doing it I definitely felt like my skin looked bright and beautiful!

2. TonyMoly Panda Dream Eye Mask

Okay, I'm still not sure if I did this right (attaching a photo for reference, please someone advise!) If you just heard the word "eye patch" and are thinking of those half-moon shaped patches that often target the under eye area, this one is a little different. It actually goes around the whole eye and makes you look like—you guessed it—A PANDA! Anyway, I ended up really liking this one since I like to do whatever I can to minimize under eye circles.


3. Innisfree It's Real Squeeze Mask in Green Tea

This is the only one I haven't gotten to try yet before this post goes up but it was recommended to me by one of the girls who works at The Mask Bar. It's supposed to be very soothing and hydrating because of the green tea, so I'm excited to give this one a try sometime soon. We're closing an issue this week, so that might be the perfect time to break it out! 

4. Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Color Clay Mask in Purple Calming

Definitely unrelated to what the mask actually does but this is the prettiest purple color. Like usually I look like a burglar or a chainsaw killer when I wear a face mask and I actually looked kind of cute wearing this? You apply a thin layer to your face and leave on for 5-10 minutes. The mask is intended to be calming and essentially be a chill pill for your skin which I definitely thought it did. I'm excited to keep using this one.
