Skin Republic CoQ10 + Caviar Sheet Mask Review

I love using sheet face masks whenever I have a bit of a pamper night. I usually use the Hydraluron masks from Indeed Labs, and really enjoy how quick and simple they are to use, not to mention the plumping effect they have on the skin. However, I haven't really branched out much into trying other brands, so when I heard about a new range of sheet masks from Skin Republic, I was keen to give them a go.

Skin Republic CoQ10 + Caviar Sheet Mask Review

There's a whole range of masks available, targeting all sorts of skin concerns (one for blemishes, one for brightening, one with collagen, etc). They even have masks for your hands and feet, which sound interesting too. All the masks are hypo-allergenic and dermatology tested, and designed to give you salon quality results in the comfort of your own home without the spa treatment price tag. It was difficult to pick just one mask - they all sounded good - but in the end I decided to go for the CoQ10 + Caviar sheet face mask*. It's packed with vitamins and protein to repair, hydrate and nourish the skin and enhance elasticity, in addition to the main ingredients of CoQ10, caviar and witch hazel which protect and reduce redness.

I like the no-fuss packaging, which comes printed with all the information you need. However, it would be nice if you could buy a box of several masks, especially since they are supposed to work best if used twice a week for a month. They're priced at £4.99 each.

Skin Republic CoQ10 + Caviar Sheet Mask Review

The instructions were pretty straightforward, but I did have a little bit of an issue with the last one: "To ensure skin compatibility, it is advisable to test a small area of the skin before use. Use the mask immediately after opening to prevent essence from drying out." Hmmm. So how am I supposed to give the skin test time to see if I'm compatible or not? I didn't worry too much, as I didn't expect to be allergic to any of the ingredients, and I wasn't, but I think that if a brand is going to recommend that you do a patch test, they should provide the means to actually do it.

Anyway, having made sure my skin was thoroughly cleansed, I opened up the packaging.

The mask inside was completely saturated with serum, which is a good thing, and freezing cold to apply to my face, which is also a good thing, I'm guessing, as it means that the ingredients were nice and fresh. It was a little uncomfortable at first, but soon started to feel better once my face had warmed it up a bit!

As instructed, I wore the mask for about twenty minutes, before removing it and gently massaging the remainder of the serum into my skin. In comparison to the Hydraluron masks I am used to, I felt that there was more of a film left on my skin with this one that took quite a while to absorb, and also that my fine lines weren't reduced quite as much as they seem to be with the Hydraluron masks. However, those have different ingredients, and different ingredients will of course target different things. The strengths of this one were plain to see once all the serum had finally sunk in. Redness was definitely reduced and my complexion as a whole looked plumped and luminous. All in all I was very happy with the results and would definitely use one of these masks again. I'm also interested to try out some of the others in the range.

You can check out the various masks here, and they should also be available to buy at Superdrug from this month.

Are you a fan of sheet masks?

  1. I enjoy sheet masks, partly because I find them to be effective, partly because they are fun to apply.

  2. Everyone is been crazy about sheet masks lately and I haven't tried that many. I usually put a mask on and do other things in the meantime but with the sheet ones you need to relax :) But I will probably get some sheet masks soon to see what's the fuss about :) x

    1. I find you can still wander about with them on as the serum sticks them to your face. So long as you don't mind walking round the house looking like something from a horror film that is! x

  7. I have a new found obsession for sheet masks. Yes, they look bloody terrifying haha, but I always find them to be more nourishing and effective than the usual mask. Fab review lovely!

  8. I'm pleased to hear you're happy with the mask, I haven't tried very many come to think of it! You've made a good point in wanting them to be sold in group-packs though, treatments/masks are always easier to purchase that way :)

    1. I think especially when a brand recommends using it over a period of time for best results, it would be nice if they made that easier for us (and a discount for bulk would be good too!) x

  11. Oh I did not know they were called "sheet masks" - I have tried these (just not that brand) and think they are ok. Just ok.

    1. We all have different skincare needs, and I guess not every type of mask is going to be the most effective on everyone. x

  12. I do mask my face now and then, but I really don't have a brand I stick to. This surely sound like a good one to try. Thanks for the review, beautiful. :)

  13. I adore sheet masks and bought lots when I was back in Malaysia because they are much cheaper there. Never tried this brand before but will check them out.

  15. The only thing about these kind of masks is that I do find them quite pricey, like twice a week that would be £10, but if it works then maybe it's worth it. So weird that they recommended a patch test before, have never heard of that. At least it left your skin luminous and plumped :D x

  24. I'm quite neutral when it comes to sheet mask, I don't mind thm but they do give everyone else a bit of a fright when I'm wearing them! I suffer from a bit of redness so these sound great :)

  26. I love face masks and hate the mess of taking them off, not sure why I've not used sheet masks before! I think £5 is quite steep for one use, but it does sound good!

  30. You made a good point about the patch test. I never thought about that before. I love sheet masks, but there is a a lot of film left on the skin, no matter what brand you use. However, I tend to use them before bed so my skin absorbs them fully over night.
