Since these masks are corrective, hydrating, soothing masks and
not exfoliating masks it is easy and safe to fit them into your normal routine!

***You can even use these after doing an at-home exfoliation, such as if you use the CCSD Warming Scrub, after rinsing it off, try applying one of these sheet masks as your next step. Or if you use the Revision Black Mask at home, rinse it off, and apply one of these masks, it will make for a great combo allowing the ingredients from the sheet masks to go even deeper!
