Respekt Facial Sheet Masks - Where K-Beauty meets Organic


"Just like your food, your skincare products should be safe and clean." - respekt.co

Cheers to sheet masks! As I shared on 5 Easy Hacks to Get the Most Out of Each Sheet Mask, sheet masks are a great way to infuse your skin with hydration to slow down signs of aging and for a healthy, youthful glow!

Hmmm, perhaps the trouble is that there are just so many options out there, it's overwhelming to try to figure out which one to use. Since a sheet masking session is a super-potent way of infusing your face with hydrating ingredients, I find that it's especially important to read the label to know what the formula is made out of. Some masks will have hidden preservatives, fragrance, alcohol, and even bleach to make the mask visibly white!


Here's where the Respekt Facial Sheet Mask flies in [literally, all the way from Korea] to save the day! Where "K-Beauty meets Organic," this is a company that you can trust your face with. Their formula is free of toxins, made with natural and organic ingredients, vegan and ethically sourced, and uses only organic, plant-derived fragrances. What's interesting as well is that Respekt - an American company based in San Francisco - co-developed this unique recipe with the established UrbanHeal Clinic in South Korea - famous for their effective sheet masks and their work with K star celebrities.

"We are proud to have achieved the world’s most rigorous standard of ethical and safe production in cosmetics, the BDIH and COSMOS natural cosmetic certifications, so you can jump right into safe choices and treat yourself to healthy, beneficial skincare with confidence"

*Organic Fragrances -  Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Oil, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil

*Botanical Preservatives - Zanthoxylum Piperitum Fruit Extract, Pulsatilla Koreana Extract, Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract


You can purchase a box with four masks for $28 or a single sheet for $7 on their website - fairly reasonable price in today's sheet mask market. I had eight masks total so I treated myself with a mini spa date every three days for a part of this month.

Here's my experience -
I opened the packet to find a sheet mask saturated in a light gel-like creamy liquid that smelled subtly of fresh florals. I immediately noticed the generous amount of serum in a single pack - on the actual mask and leftover in the pouch. For a couple of my masking sessions, I had so much serum left that even after putting it abundantly on my face and neck, I had some leftovers to use for the next day!

For most sheet masks, the optimal time of leaving them on tends to run from about 10-20min [max]. Personally for me, for Respekt's masks, 15 minutes hit the sweet spot. After the 15 minutes I felt like the mask started drying out so I took it off and massaged my face and neck [in a light rubbing circular motion] with the leftover serum in the packet. I applied moisturizer and face oil on top to seal in all that goodness and went to bed to get my beauty sleep.

I wish I could invite you over just to see how pretty my skin looks after a session with Respekt's sheet masks because it's so hard to capture it in photos or a video. My face looks visibly brighter, with most of the redness around my nose gone, and my skin looks dewy and healthy.


Have you seen this while traveling? Some serious beauty connoisseurs will take multiple sheet masks with them on an airplane ride to avoid dehydration! And dedicated individuals will even mask every single day! I'm not there yet, but I had the pleasure of pampering my face with Respekt's Facial Sheet Masks this last month and the results speak for themselves. Especially with the cold and dry season upon us, I'm thinking that I'll keep up a consistent sheet mask regimen with an all natural brand like Respekt. I'll let you know if I find any other ones that I find worth mentioning!

Also, a mask is only as good as how you use it, right? If you missed it - here are some Sheet Mask Hacks to get the most out of each masking session!
