How To Remove Different Kinds of Face Masks

How to Remove Eye Masks

Similar to sheet masks, eye masks generally consist of essence-soaked material that can be applied to the under-eye area for a specific amount of time, like the Patchology Mood Patch Eye Gels. Though not intended for everyday use, they offer a moisture “boost” to the under-eye area on sleepy mornings. To remove eye masks, simply peel back the material, and use your pinky or ring finger to dab in any leftover essence.
