Skincare FAQs

How often can I use a sheet mask?
Use our facial sheet masks as often as you like! Because it takes just 5 minutes, go ahead and use daily or weekly—it's totally up to you.

What are the benefits of using a sheet mask?
We've designed each facial sheet mask to support a variety of skin care needs. Whether you are searching for anti aging solutions, acne solutions or you simply want to moisturize your face, our sheet masks have key ingredients ranging from Niacinamide to Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin B5 to address your beauty concerns. The masks help keep the ingredients right on your skin, so it can absorb as much as possible.

Tips and hacks for using sheet masks and patches
  • Prep your skin by making sure your face is totally clean. That means removing makeup and other skincare products.
  • PRO TIP: Feeling puffy? Store your FlashMasque sheet masks and FlashPatch eye and lip gels in the fridge. They'll feel extra soothing on the skin and will help reduce redness even more.
  • Use up that excess serum in the packet. Massage over your hands or décolletage.

What are the benefits of using an eye gel mask?
Our Under Eye Gels also address a variety of under eye area concerns. From Puffy eyes, to dark circles under eyes, we have eye gels that will rival any under eye patches or eye creams. In fact, our FlashPatch Rejuvenating Eye Gels are a must for puffy, couldn't-sleep-last-night eyes. In just 5 minutes, they depuff and and moisturize the under eye area. Wear them any time your eyes need a little extra smoothing and soothing (even if that's every day!)

FlashPatch Restoring Night Eye Gels give you your nightly dose of retinol and hydration. In addition to anti-aging benefits, they work to reduce dark circles (the under-eye holy grail?).

What are the benefits of using a lip gel mask?
FlashPatch Hydrating Lip Gels will leave your lips smoothed, soothed, and moisturized in just 5 minutes. Follow them with our Lip Service Gloss-to-Balm Treatment to seal in your newly perfected pout.

What is the difference between a Mud Mask and a Sheet Mask?
Our SmartMud No Mess Mud Masque is primarily used to detox your skin while cleansing pores and reducing the appearance of large pores. Our Facial Sheet Masks can help with everything from hydrating  and moisturizing your skin with the intoxicatingly amazing Get Dewy With It, to Brightening with solutions like the Just Let it Glow Sheet Mask

Can you use a mud mask every day?
We recommend using SmartMud No Mess Mud Masque 2–3 times per week. Any more than that and you may experience irritation (and no one wants to deal with that!).

What should I do after a mud mask?
Follow-up your SmartMud No Mess Mud Masque with a product that will hydrate and replenish the skin. We suggest our FlashMasque Hydrate sheet mask.

Is Patchology safe to use while pregnant or nursing?
While every ingredient we use in our products are evaluated for safety, we do not specifically test our products on women who are pregnant or nursing. As there could be certain ingredients that physicians may not recommend for use during pregnancy and nursing, we always recommend that you discuss this with your physician and follow their advice.

How do I apply skincare in the right order?

  3. Seal everything in with a moisturizer or sleeping mask. 

How do I get rid of dark circles under eyes?
Try our Illuminating Eye Gels to brighten your under eye area. Our formulas include a range of ingredients including Vitamin C to help brighten those under eyes.  

How do I get rid of wrinkles and fine lines?
We suggest trying our Restoring Night Eye Gels which help plump, hydrate and smooth out fine lines. 

What is the best acne treatment for me?
While everyone's skin is unique and beautiful, we know that certain treatments are generally effective at clearing pores and reducing acne and acne scars. We recommend our 3-in-1 Breakout Box which includes Salicylic Acid to reduce blemishes, Hydrocolloid Dots to absorb pesky whiteheads and detoxifying charcoal nose strips to evacuate dirt and dead skin from pores. Start with a clean face, and use these barely-there dots, patches and strips to facilitate clearer skin.

All of the products in our FlashMasque and FlashPatch collections are perfect for on-the-go use.
