Cult-Favourite Sheet Masks
When we talk about Banobagi, we always have their popular sheet mask collection in mind. From jelly mask, cocktail mask to premium injection mask, Banobagi sheet masks have been winning international popularity, including in Korea.
We would love to introduce you to the signature of Banobagi, it is a jelly mask with JEJU ingredients and vitamin complex. The mask pack is designed with prescription of different Jeju’s natural extracts for skin problems, namely Volcanic ash, spring water, cherry blossom, tangerine fruit, oxygen water, opuntia tuna fruit and aloe. Furthermore, it contains 9 types of more than 40,000ppm liposomal vitamins such as A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B7, B9, C and E to make your skin healthy, hydrated and radiant.
You may worry about the texture of jelly would cause stickiness but no, 100% cotton sheet also enhances the penetration of active ingredients.
As similar to a jelly mask, the foil one contains 9 types of vitamin complex, plus mineral water to make your skin elastic and clear. With different types of natural-derived ingredients namely witch hazel for aqua suppliers, lemon for whitening and oats for anti-aging, the masks are ideal for a weekly schedule. It also is cotton texture, but more specially, it is an upper and lower mask with two parts separately, nice try!
All you have to do to see the miracle of these masks is apply them into your face in 10-20 minutes after washing face and using toner to prepare skin.
