I can’t get enough os sheetmasks! Today I will share my experience with you about the Charlotte Tilbury: Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask 4 pack / single. This is a whole new game! Auntie Charlotte came with a dry sheetmask instead of the well-known wet sheetmasks that came all the way from Asia to the Western world. Here in The Netherlands they just got introduced to the wet sheetmask by brands like Starskin and Glowskin. Now I have to get used to the idea that this will take all the unpleasant feelings away from the wet sheetmask. I can’t wait to share my thoughts with you, because I’m a big Charlotte Tilbury lover and I can’t say that any of her items are not worth it. Let’s get started!
WHAT MAKES INSTANT MAGIC FACIAL DRY SHEET MASK MAGIC:
•Get glowing red-carpet-ready skin in just 15 minutes!
•The mask is dry as the textile fabric has already been impregnated with tiny vectors of Charlotte’s MAGIC actives – featuring vitamins, floral extracts, peptides, oils and butters – which are delivered directly into the third layer of the epidermis.
•This unique DRY sheet mask is like nothing you’ve tried before! It has an in-built technological 5 Skin Solution IQ which tailors to your skin, feeding it exactly what it needs.
•Bio-mimetic revolutionary system gives a prolonged release of the ingredients, giving it time to immerse into your complexion.
•Usual wet masks are mainly glycerin & water and slop on but the ingredients evaporate off of the skin after 45 minutes. This lasts for 8 HOURS!
•Because it isn’t a wet formula, it doesn’t harbour bacteria, so you can use this up to 3 times!
•Ideal if you want gorgeous, glowing HD camera-ready skin that is hydrated and revitalised.

I received two times the single sheetmasks from Charlotte Tilbury. My first thoughts about this mask was: iewww you can use this mask multiple times? How is that ever going to be hygienic for your skin? Still really mind twisted about the fact that one sheet mask can be used up to 3 times. They claim so many great things for your skin, they even delivered a small book with all the amazing results women claim to have after using the dry sheet mask by Charlotte Tillbury. I’m getting more and more curious about this stuff!
The sheetmask is packed in a foil gold sachet that can be closed after you tear it open. I like the flashy gold packaging from Charlotte, it is exactly what I expected from a beautiful brand like this. It doesn’t look like your typical sheetmask packaging because they are usually made from a different material the sachet.
In the sachet you find the single dry sheet mask. The dry sheet mask is neatly fold into the sachet and easy to get it out. My first reaction when I saw the sheet mask was: what a weird material it is! But I almost forgot that it was a dry sheet mask so I bet they look and feel different from a wet sheet mask.
The sheet mask has two sides: a pink and a white side. The pink side is where the ‘magic’ is hidden, this part has to be placed on the skin. The white side is the outside of the dry sheet mask (duhhhh). At first I was a bit skeptical about the holes in this mask, they seem so small to me especially the nose part. Doesn’t it look like the Hannibal nose holes in his mask? I don’t know I’m just afraid that it won’t fit my face.
The fun thing about this mask is that it has loops around the ears so they mask has more grip and stability to stay in place. Little fun fact about me: I have freaking small ears, mine are literally round and ugly. You may can imagine that if my ears are round and small, that the legs glasses never stay behind my ears. My life sucks.
So I have a few things, or maybe more: is this mask going to fit my big ass head and are the holes big enough? Does it stay in place even when the loops around my ears wont fit? I’m also afraid what the feeling is going to be while wearing this mask because the material feels thick and uneasy like the skin can’t breath. Luckily you only have to wear this mask 15 minutes to achieve results while with the wet sheet mask I like to wear them all night to get more results and moisturized skin.
I’m a true beauty mommy. Look at my pretty face. To be honest I made a shot of my head first without makeup because during masks I don’t like to wear eye makeup. But for the sake of God and your eyes I didn’t use those shots because I looked scary and ugly and like your biggest nightmare. It wasn’t fun. So I applied some false lashes and eyeliner and now I’m more presentable for the world wide web.
When I applied the dry sheet mask I instantly became sweaty. This mask feels so claustrophobic to me because the material feels so thick and holds all the warmth. I don’t like it at all! I felt annoyed and I had the urge to take of this mask without minutes. What annoyed me the most was the holes for your nose and mouth, to me they weren’t big enough.
The loops around my ears fit perfect! They stay behind my ears and they really are functional to keep the mask on your face. You have to put two loops behind your ears, one for the upper face part and the other for the jaw line. It makes me feel like I’m wearing a third skin because it feels tight around my face. I do look the idea behind the loops because I can do everything now without having to worry that the dry sheet mask falls of my face (which happens occasionally with my wet sheet masks).
When wearing the dry sheet mask you are supposed to massage your skin to activate the product in the mask and to transfer it to the skin. Sounds logic. While doing this I get more and more irritated by the feeling of this fabric.
After 15 whole minutes I can finally remove the mask! I felt relived and reborn when I removed the mask. My first thought was that my skin looked super glowy and moist, maybe a little bit too much for my super oily skin BUT I had an idea. After using this dry sheet mask I didn’t apply any other skincare items and I immediately applied my makeup on top of it. BEST.IDEA.EVER. My skin looked awesome that day, even old men on the street complimented my boyfriend that he did “a good job”. Oh men, not sure if it was because of my beautiful skin or my new leather jacket but I felt confident that day!
When I didn’t use makeup on top of it I just walked around bare face all day. Later that day my skin felt so smooth and radiant and glowy. I can’t get the word glowy out of my head when I think about this mask. I do find it a bit too hydrated but that is because my skin is super oily. Dry skin people would love this!
I’m really happy with the results of this mask! I does take a lot of dedication to use this mask because it doesn’t feel comfortable, relaxing or fun. It is everything but great when wearing this mask. But when you look at the amazing results after 15 minutes of torturing it is all worth it!
I can recommend dry skin people this mask or when you need a glowy face for a special occasion. I can confirm that this mask does magic to your skin and that you don’t need any skincare items after using this. Skip the whole routine and instantly apply you makeup for that radiant and glowy face! If you have oily skin like me, maybe reduce the time by 5 minutes instead of 15. I think it will work just as fine.
