Charlotte Tilbury Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask Review

It’s no secret I love sheet masks! The traditional ‘wet’ sheet masks originally made popular by K- beauty can now be found everywhere and almost every brand is popping them out! Charlotte Tilbury’s Dry sheet masks, however, is different: 1st of all its dry and secondly you can use them up to 3 times! Finally they come with ear hooks to prevent them from slipping off. At £18 it’s expensive but if you’re going to get 3 uses out of it then it should add up right?

In a nutshell

A dry sheet mask that instantly hydrates, lifts, brightens, smoothes and reduces wrinkles in just 15 mins


Masking Vibes

I have used this mask 3 times albeit very far in between uses. What are my thoughts? Well, I love the ear hooks so they stay on (although I haven’t had any issues with the wet sheet masks sliding down my face) instant results- TRUE.  You do see an instant glow and radiance with the mask and my skin is softer, HOWEVER, the results are just that instant. Don’t expect any long-term results with this. Unlike the traditional wet masks- which you can just put on and mind yo business, with this one you gotta massage the mask to activate the product. I do love the ear hooks but massaging the masks means its constantly shifting around (not coming off) so I have to keep readjusting it on my face. For me, it defeats the purpose doing a mask. I don’t massage for the full 15 mins but still, I would like to do something else while I have my mask on lol.

Is it hygienic though? Not sure. I have used the mask 3 times but very far in between and I can’t help but think of hygiene. They say to ensure the mask it’s dry before placing back in the ‘hygienic pouch’ – but in my experience, the mask never got wet or remotely damp anyway (is it supposed to?) So are you wondering if you get the same instant results every time you use it? Well, the 3rd time I used it? Literally 0 results! Nada! Nothing. It was really good the 1st time, 2nd time was ok and the 3rd?  Well, you read the above sentence, right?

Verdict– I have honestly never come across any brand that speaks so highly of their products like CT and her brand. This (and pillowtalk lipstick) was my 1st purchases from the brand and both have failed me. Pillowtalk lipstick was very popular and since I love nude lips I decided to purchase it. Now on the dark skin model on her website, it looked good enough for me to use, bear in mind she was slightly darker than me. I finally received it and not only is it NOT MATTE, it’s an ashy beige-ish pink- nude that I simply can’t make WORK! I mean I have lighter lipsticks that I have made work with a darker lipliner but pillowtalk just isn’t cooperating. This is one pillow I don’t wanna lie on (LOOL)

With this dry sheet mask, at least she’s marketing it as an instant result but if it’s going to be used 3 times should I get those ‘instant results’ 3 times? Maybe you’re supposed to use them 3 times in a short period of time, I don’t know, but for me, it’s a fail and I will be stick to my traditional ‘wet’ sheet masks

What do you think? Have you used this product? Let me know
