SNP Sheet Masks for Hydration in Dry Weather

I first came across Korean brand SNP thanks to Memebox, back in their halcyon days. The brand stands for "Shine Nature Purity". The sheet masks were gentle and soothing, and they did not break me out at all. Through 2016, I did not use too many sheet masks, because of my battle with huge nodular cystic breakouts.
Recently, I rediscovered SNP and found that they have some neat sheet masks which are actually out of the common, given the ingredients!

Scroll down for more on the SNP sheet masks from Kollshop.

pr sample

The masks I tried out were:

Bird's Nest Aqua Ampoule Mask
Gold Collagen Ampoule Mask
Charcoal Mineral Black Ampoule Mask
Prestige Mayu Ampoule Mask
Black Pearl Renew Black Ampoule Mask
Diamond Brightening Ampoule Mask

Of these, my favourites were the top three, in terms of hydration, quantity of "liquid" in the masks, and softest skin the following morning. To be honest, I wasn't a fan of the Diamond Brightening Ampoule Mask, which didn't do my hyperpigmentation any favours despite the claims to the contrary - it is supposed to contain "diamond powder", and niacinamide, but I wasn't bowled over. I haven't tried the Prestige Mayu masks yet, owing to lack of time. 

Here's the Charcoal Mineral Black Ampoule Mask in action. It drew out a bunch of whiteheads, and also brought the one pimple I had to a head; I didn't get a new pimple for a couple of weeks! An anti-pimple mask - WHY aren't there more of these?

The Gold Collagen Ampoule Mask actually had gold flakes (circled in red in photo below). It had a tonne of "essence" and was nicely hydrating. I tried to see if I could retrieve the gold flakes - because gold - but they seemed to disappear into my skin, which much clearly be richer now.

These masks contained a lot more serum - essence; liquid - than other sheet masks I've tried (Skinmiso is possibly the only sheet mask brand that contains as much, or a bit more, even). So there was enough to store in little pot, and use over the next couple of days. Why waste product?

Verdict, and where to buy

I noticed instant brightening with the gold mask, and my pores appeared smaller. With the charcoal mask, I've had smaller pores, and less angry spots, which then went on their merry way. The Bird's nest mask gave me the softest skin. These are three that I'll be repurchasing. They have made it possible for my face to be flake-free during this dry season - despite the ample used of retinol. 
You can buy SNP masks from Kollshop, who ship worldwide. Each mask costs $3.
