The $4 Sheet Mask That’s Meant To Be Worn Under Your Face Mask To Help Soothe Your Skin


Masque Bar has launched a Shield & Soothe Hydrogel PPE Facial Under Mask, which is designed to be worn under your face mask. You can also use it as skin relief after wearing a mask throughout the day.

The Korean mask brand created the product after face masks become the most effective way to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, meaning millions of people are wearing them every day. 

The daily wear of face masks has given some people skin reaction that are either breakouts or dry skin.

This particular mask is made with hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, and calendula, which can provide moisture, calm the skin, and promote healing, as detailed on the Masque Bar website.

The product was originally created for healthcare workers, though it now has mass-market appeal as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

The masks cost $3.99 on the Masque Bar website, and a percentage of the proceeds will support healthcare workers. 

In my opinion I’m not 100% sold on the idea that it can help skin from wearing a face mask. It does provide a barrier from the original face mask but can another mask really help prevent skin damage from – another mask?

I also dislike the idea of having something so saturated in ingredient on my face for a long period of time. It could seem overwhelming.

If you’ve tried it, I’d love to know what you thought, so leave me a comment.
