The internet’s top five.

There’s something very trustworthy about a person who leaves a product review. They’ve tried it, contemplated the results and gone to the effort of typing out a comprehensive (more or less) summary of their experience.

Granted, sometimes it’s because the reviewer is petty and needs to take their anger out on the internet (the time my Amazon garlic press was simply not pressing) – but for the most part, reviews are left for the greater good of the online shopping community.

Regardless, I will never invest in a beauty or skincare product without a thorough scroll through the comment section. It saves me a lot of impulse purchase regrets and most of the time, the people know what they’re talking about. How else am I supposed to distinguish a ‘shimmery finish’ from a ‘greasy smear’?

So as I needed a hydrating, skin-transforming sheet mask (it’s not even winter yet and my face is already crying), I decided to consult the experts. Here are the beauty crowd’s top-rated picks.

Star rating: 4.7 of 1583 reviews on Mecca

Is it true that everything Zoë Foster-Blake turns to gold? According to these Mecca reviews, apparently so. This ‘serum-drenched’ mask is boosted with niacinamide, Kakadu plum and finger lime extract, giving your skin “a great burst of goodness”, according to one enthusiastic reviewer. At just $11, this product is “highly recommended to anyone with troublesome skin” and leaves your skin “unbelievably soft and glowing”, according to reviewers. The white sheet mask also apparently “scares the heck out of husbands”, which is always a bonus.

I might be biased (the Dewy Skin Cream truly changed my face) but when I see that signature lilac packaging, I know the product is likely to be effective. And good news! Japanese beauty brand Tatcha has blessed skincare lovers with a sheet mask, and it supposedly doesn’t disappoint. “The results speak for themselves”, one enthusiastic review reads. “Like an instant facelift!” I will admit – $142 for four sheet masks does seem like a lot, but the “special occasion” mask seems to deliver. “After using this mask you will feel amazing”, said an enthusiastic reviewer. “Skin is glowing, feels tight and refreshed.”

Korean skincare is renowned for being top-tier – and this sheet mask from Seoul-based brand Saturday Skin is no exception, according to reviews. At $11 for one mask, it’s again very reasonable – and “the extra product infused into the mask makes it totally worth it”, according to one rave review. “So hydrating,” another reads. “And after you take the mask out of the packet, don’t throw it away. There’s more product in there and I use it to the last drop!”

Worn under a dramatic pair of sunglasses, those little eye masks are a trending accessory for skincare enthusiasts everywhere. Mecca’s gold-flecked hydrogel eye masks are particularly bougie and effective, according to reviewers. “These are a great little pick me up if you are feeling dry under your eyes or puffy,” one reviewer says. “I noticed that if I pop them on in the morning when I’m feeling tired or need a pick me up, they work a treat.” Tired or hungover eyes, this is the product for you.

Star rating: 4.7 of 64 reviews on Sephora

So this mask is recommended to be used in conjunction with Foreo’s UFO device, but our trusty reviewers say it’s also wonderful on its own. “The most amazing nighttime product,” one reviewer says. “Makes my skin feel soft and hydrated – love, love, love!” Designed to transform dry, tired skin overnight, this $16 mask “is super refreshing and leaves skin really glowy”, one reviewer says. “I use this every week”.
