I love Charlotte Tilbury and was intrigued by the new Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask. I will admit I am not a huge fan of sheet masks. However, it was Charlotte Tilbury, and a new style dry sheet mask so I figured it was worth a try. Details per Charlotte Tilbury:

The idea of a dry sheet mask is intriguing. I like the cooling, refreshing feel of wet sheet masks, but I hate how they slide around my face, drip, are insanely expensive for what they are, and have tiny eye holes and I feel like I need to squint the whole time I’m wearing them. They work incredibly well, very hydrating. However, I find I just never reach for them when I have them because I hate how they feel on my face. I like eye patches, but something about the whole sheet mask and how it feels on my face keeps me from buying them.
The Charlotte Tilbury Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask comes folded in a little square and touts you can use it three times before you need to toss. It is completely dry. The mask has a lightweight felt fabric feel to it.
The inside layer that touches your face is the pink side with the CT logo on it.
You can see the inside versus outside of the mask in this pic.
You will look like a Halloween horror story when you wear this mask. It looks like Jason and there’s no getting around that. Just hope your little ones don’t wake up while you’re trying it out. It is dry in every sense. It doesn’t drip and is a warm versus the cooling feel of traditional sheet masks. It has no strong scent. The pink inside of the mask has an oily feel to it.
When this mask is on your face it feels like it’s not doing anything. I’m used to either tingling or cooling, not a warm nothing feel. When you remove the mask your skin has this strong glow to it. You can feel the hydrating oils on your face. The leftover oils feel dry, like what it feels like after an oil sinks in partially. It’s not glossy or liquid oil greasy, but it leaves an oil based feel on your skin after using.
So this is ultimately a hydrating mask, that leaves skin glowing from oil based ingredients. It’s not cheap at $22 for one or $80 for 4. I love the innovative idea, no drip, mess free style. I hate the feel of it on my face because it’s a sheet mask. I just don’t like how they feel on. I’m a weirdo. So while I may not buy it again, I can see why many would love it and would recommend it if you need hydration, moisture and like sheet masks. It will give you easy glowing radiant skin.
