Starskin appears to be a very well funded brand – it’s appeared from nowhere and now it’s everywhere! The brand is opening in many markets at once, too. However, they’ve very quickly gone from just facial sheet masks into hand and foot masks, too. I’ve tried the hand mask which comes as a giant pair of gloves with all the goo inside and plastic on the outside. I loved the experience because it’s something different and once the gloves were off, so to speak, my hands were definitely better for it. But, something I find with all sheet masks – and it maybe the water content – but you initially get a great feeling of hydration but quite quickly return to feeling dry so I’d always advise topping up with hand cream post mask.Starskin Foot Mask
So, in a similar way to the hand mask, the foot mask involves some giant socks – do make sure you do the tabs up at the top as this ensures that your own body heat stays in the bags and helps with moisture delivery. The Starskin Foot Mask doesn’t give you one almighty peel – if your feet are beset by dry skin, winter is the best time to start dealing with it as they’re not on show as much – and if that extreme dry skin peel is what you’re after you’re far better off with the Footner Exfoliating Socks (HERE) that do an incredible peel (I’ve even had Mr BBB testing these out!). The Starskin Foot Mask is more about hydration and softening and although I haven’t yet put my feet into them, judging by the hand mask trial, I’d say it’s a goer and also something a bit different and fun. It’s £7 HERE.
Incidentally, sheet mask news – there’s a sheet mask making machine in development as I write; a bit like a Nutribullet so you can throw in all the fresh ingredients you like, but the difference is that at the end, instead of pouring it into a glass, there’s a section that is shaped like a sheet mask, you add in a glycerine (or similar) mix and it turns the whole lot into a face-shaped, rubbery textured mask. I think, to be honest, I’d end up drinking it before mixing it.

Tha sheet mask machine is here already!

I didnt even know that foot masks were a thing? haha learn something new everyday
I like the sound of that sheet mask machine!
Having found a not bad at all Argan oil footmask in Poundland recently I’m a bit reluctant to shell out £7 for something like this. It’s only your feet, that’s where all the skincare that does nothing for your face ends up, surely?
On the foot peel side I can recommend this Japanese one (ships from the UK) http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-1-Pair-Foot-mask-Japanese-Butterfly-Exfoliating-peeling-Baby-bamboo-vinegar-/121640763866 I have done about 6 foot peels now (need to get a new hobby) and that one was the best by far.
I’m another fan of the Poundland Argan foot mask. They also do a tea tree & peppermint one, which is OK, but I prefer the Argan.
You’re welcome Jane! 🙂
I’m living in South Korea and sheet masks are a big thing over here! Korean women are obsessed with them, there are sheet masks for any part of your body you can think of… Crazy!
I think we haven’t quite got to grips with them here – I still prefer the old style cream masks to be honest! Thanks again so much for flagging this up x
