Give the Gift of Sheet Mask!

I keep a pretty full stock of sheet mask. Whenever I see a gift set that contains multiples I grab it up. Why? It’s the best way to get the most bang for your buck and to always have a mask that fits your particular skin care need at the time. Yesterday I used a Dr. Jart+ Pore Minimalist Charcoal Mask, and it was heaven. It’s also why you have to snap things up pretty quickly when the holiday sets go live at Sephora.
