Another day, another amazing beauty collaboration we can't wait to get our eager hands on! 

The Internet's latest offering comes in the form of beautiful Disney-inspired face masks, and we want every single one of them. 

The Face Shop, who specialise in Korean beauty products, recently brought sheet masks together with its latest Disney collaboration.

The brand new sheet mask collection includes Disney princess-inspired masks that will leave your skin, hair, and even your feet feeling gorgeous and glowing.

The best part is, while you can buy a classic face mask, the collaboration is also offering options for your hair and feet – all inspired by the wonderful princesses we love.

You can choose from the Sleeping Beauty face mask, Snow White brightening mask, and Little Mermaid sheet mask, which promise to leave your skin feeling fresh like a princess.

The Rapunzel hair mask contains "88 extracts" that are guaranteed to give your lucious locks a “magical, and healthy shine.” There is also a Cinderella foot mask, which “contains strong moisturising ingredients such as shea butter and collagen.”

Prices for the GLORIOUS masks start at just €7 for two, which seems like a small price to pay for Disney themed relaxation.

Emojis have integrated themselves into our day-to-day text speak, and have almost become a language of their own.

For this reason, we weren't too surprised when we discovered that emoji sheet masks were in existence, but they do look a little startling. 

Social media savvy fans of the masks have been uploading their emoji selfies to Instagram, and the look is pretty out there.

From the crying cat emoji, to the angry face and the laughing with tears of joy emoji, all of the classics are covered. 

The masks are by a brand called Petite Amie, and the Emoji Series of sheet masks are proving very popular. 


The brand offers six emoji sheet masks, each of which are $10.00, or €9.42.

Each mask has a different, specific skin function based on the emojis themselves.

For example, the red angry face mask is said to calm redness and irritation.

The Korean beauty inspired masks are flying off the virtual shelves, and we're dying to get our hands on a set.

After all, what face mask could be more Instagram-worthy than an emoji-themed one? 



When you think of Power Rangers, you probably get all nostalgic reminiscing about your childhood.

Skin care probably isn't the first thing that springs to mind.

To celebrate the launch of the up-and-coming Power Rangers movie, which will be out later this year, Glam Glow is answering our eight-year-old prayers by creating a Power Rangers version of their famous Gravity Mud Mask.

The masks are inspired by the Power Ranger villains, Rita Repulsa and Goldar, as portrayed by their rich villainous shades. 


A post shared by GLAMGLOW (@glamglow) on

 The masks are scheduled to launch in August and we kind of cant wait to get our hands on both. 

Our childhood fantasies of kicking butt in a Power Rangers costume are one step closer to becoming a reality. 


A post shared by GLAMGLOW (@glamglow) on

According to Glam Glow's Instagram, evil is the new sexy, and looking at these masks, we couldn't agree more.

It's morphing time, for our skin at least.  

 Oh, and while we have you; don't forget to have your say in the inaugural SHEmazing Awards this May! It's time to vote, and you can do it right here!



Our social media pages have been chock-a-block with videos of beauty gurus trying out the infamous black charcoal masks that everyone has been obsessed with lately.

The masks offer an intense pore purging, and many videos of the painful extraction method have gone viral.

Now, one aesthetic facialist has spoken out against the masks, claiming that they could be highly damaging to the skin.


A post shared by Giada Temporin (@giada_temporin) on

Andy Millward, a member of the British Association of Beauty Therapy and Cosmetology and registered facialist, took to Facebook to pen a post against the masks after seeing them in action. 

"To anyone tempted by or intrigued by these 'Black Charcoal Peel Off Pore Masks'. DON'T. JUST DON'T!!"

"They look very damaging the skin. Literally ripping the surface layer of skin off (& probably the vellus hair with it) so of course it's going to feel soft & smooth underneath."

"As for all those "blackheads" it pulls out. The majority of the oils pulled from the skin will be sebaceous filaments and actually needed by the skin so will be replaced within 30 days anyway to ensure healthy skin balance," he said.

"Blocked pores are entirely different to sebum lined pores."

"As a one off, the skin is likely to recover without issue but continued use, stripping away the skins natural oils and irritating the skin is a sure fast track to secondary skin concerns. You have been warned!"


A post shared by Autumn (@autumntosh) on

So while the beauty gurus may make it look easy, it could actually be ding more harm than good.

Perhaps only applying the masks to areas that actually have blackheads would be the best bet, to avoid uprooting any necessary oils.

Just watching the video of the charcoal mask fail is making our eyes water… 




Not only is red wine our favourite drink, it is now our favourite beauty product. 

That's right ladies, there is a red wine face mask out there, and it will give the most flawless skin ever. 

Korean beauty company Watsons have created a red wine antioxidant facial mask.

The sheet mask contains polyphenols that combat free radicals and aid in skin rejuvenation, leaving you with more refined and supple looking skin.

Sounds delightful!

The instructions on the packaging says to "gently place the mask onto your face after cleansing. Leave on for 15-20 minutes and then gently massage the remaining essence into the skin."

This gorgeous beauty treat can be purchased online, and costs €14.




W all know celebs are partial to the odd unusual beauty treatment – vampire facials were a thing, after all.

But the new skin treatment that Vicky Pattison has recently tried is quite strange indeed. 

The reality star shared a glimpse of her weekend on Twitter, and that included a robotic mask treatment aimed to rejuvenate the skin.

The brunette beauty wrote on Twitter, "Lol… A weekend at home wouldn't be a relaxing weekend without a trip to my face doctor!"

The 28-year-old also posted a video by the salon, Le Beau, and in it she is heard saying the mask is actually relaxing.

It doesn't come cheap though, as only one treatment is £800 (€1022).

Dr Esho from the salon told OK! how the mask actually works: "LED lights stimulate our cells and kick-start a number of processes which help rejuvenate the skin."

Erm, we don't know about you, but for a grand, we rather stick to our sheet face masks. 


Face masks are finally making a reappearance in recent times after they went off the radar for few years. And oh-my are they are back with a vengeance.

In fact, they are proving to be one of the most beneficial products you can use on your face. 

But what's all this talk about sheet face masks? Well ladies, you probably have heard of them before… but back then they were just known as cloth face masks.

Yep, that simple, get ready to get pampered old-school style!

The Asian beauty trend has hit Ireland by storm and now every pharmacy, clinic and beauty salon has a treatment for one on their list. But how does this beauty trend really work? We did a little research and the results are GREAT.

Each fabric mask comes individually wrapped in a packet which is soaked in a potent and reviving skin serum.

While you might not look the most attractive with the mask on, it promises to transform dull and dead skin into a healthy and radiant complexion.

It is great for people who need deep product penetration as it encourages the skin to effectively absorb the serum.

But why can't I just apply the serum directly to my skin, you ask? Well, the reason for the fabric is it ensures that the formula and active ingredients are pushed into the skin as much as possible so every component gets used.

These sound great and are so easy to use! Will you be bagging in on this revived beauty trend? 



Some of us don't apply face masks as often as we should. In reality though, they are the perfect thing to do on your romantic Friday night date with your cat and a glass of wine.

Here are 5 reasons why we think you should start finding time to apply a face mask!

1. They are really relaxing. Go for a long soak in a bubble bath and then apply a face mask, you'll feel relaxed due to the scent and your skin will feel fab.

2. Cleansing your skin only removes surface dirt. Face masks cause a deeper cleanse by drawing impurities out of the skin.

3. Regular face masks keep your pores unclogged and prevent the bacteria build up under our skin which can cause spots.  

4. After you've applied a face mask you will feel better in yourself because of the time and care you've dedicated to your skin.

5. DIY face masks can be great fun and used when you don't have time to run out and buy one. 

A few suggestions for your DIY facemask ingredients we would suggest are- banana, avocado, honey and yoghurt.
