Trader Joe’s Face Sheet Mask – A Good Buy or Goodbye?

Trader Joe’s – ‘Just Say No’ To Their Rich Hydrating Face Sheet Mask.


First of all, let me just start off by saying that, I LOVE Trader Joe’s. I’ve been shopping there for years. But I don’t really buy beauty products from there, mainly just groceries. However, the other day I came across their Rich Hydrating Face Sheet Mask for only $2. That’s right, only $2. Yes, I had to give this beauty product a try.

Trader Joe’s describes their sheet mask as:

( ↓ product description from Trader Joe’s website ↓ )

Single-use sheet masks are all the rage in the world of at-home skin care, and our Sheet Mask is truly top of the line. For starters, we use only 100% cotton to make the sheet itself. What really sets ours apart are the ingredients it’s soaked in – like hydrating hyaluronic acid & honey; revitalizing rose hip & camellia oils; calming chamomile, green tea & turmeric extracts; plumping propolis, pomegranate & blue algae extracts; and more… plus a bit of natural cucumber fragrance for a spa-day touch. Each Trader Joe’s Face Sheet Mask is sold individually and packaged for portability – toss one in your travel bag, your purse, or slip one inside a birthday card for your bestie.

Trader Joe’s Face Sheet Mask sure is: we’re selling each single-use Sheet Mask (.67 fluid ounces per package) for a cool, calm $1.99. You’ll find it with our other “treats” for your face.

PROS & CONS – Trader Joe’s Rich Hydrating Face Sheet Mask:

  • Affordable. Beauty on a budget. If you can’t afford a $10, $15, or $20 face sheet mask…then yeah, this will do.
  • Compact & Portable.
  • ⊕ Convenient. I think it’s convenient that you can go grocery shopping, and pick up beauty products at the same time. You know, like, you don’t have to go to a separate location (Sephora, Ultra) to purchase a beauty product.
  • No negative reaction. I have very sensitive skin, and I had no breakouts using this product. This sheet mask had not negative impact on my face at all, which is always a plus.
  •  Horrible fit. Eyes: Holes were too small, and they were too close to my lash line. Mouth: Mouth hole was too small. Nose: Nose strip was too long. The mask overlapped over my hair line, so messy. The fitting was just horrible.
  • Weird, gross smell
  • Messy. There was way too much serum in the packet. I know that can be a good thing, but, I didn’t know and it spilled out all over me.
  • Flimsy. It was hard to pull the mask apart and put it on my face
  • Too Sticky. My face felt gross afterward. I had to wash it off, I just didn’t like the texture it left on my face. My face did feel nice after I washed the mask off, though.
  • It didn’t layer well at all with any other of my face products. The serum left my face too sticky, and I when I applied my Vitamin C serum, sunblock, foundation, concealer, setting powder,.etc Let’s just say my skin looked horrible with this sheet mask serum as the base. I had to wash it all off.
  • I didn’t notice a difference at all in my face. I wasn’t like, “Wow, I need to use this again.”

You Get What You Pay For

TJ’s, so this wasn’t a post to bash them. I just personally know that I will never buy their sheet masks ever again. It was a fail all around. As you can see in the pics below, the sheet mask just didn’t frame my face at all. But, it was only 2 bucks, so I’ll live.

Careful how you open the packet, there was a lot of serum inside, and some spilled on me. Goodbye to Trader Joe’s face sheet mask, you were not a goodbuy. Sadly these won’t be one of my Trader Joe’s staples.

↑ Oh my gosh, I know I look so silly in these pics, but I just had to show y’all how this sheet mask was a horrible fit for me. So, ‘Just Say No’ to a Trader Joe’s face sheet mask.

Um, what do pink roses have to do with a face sheet mask? Nothing. I just wanted to share something pink and pretty.

    What a shame it was such a let down, at least it wasn’t too expensive. I like my face masks to fit nicely or I end up feeling panicky haha xx

      Thanks so much, lovely! I do think $2 is an excellent price, though, but the mask just didn’t fit well.

    I really love sheet masks! Although I usually just order a pack from one of my favourite korean brands ( Innisfree or Etude House) because I know it’s a safe bet.
    It’s sad that, even though it was an inexpensive mask, it did not live to your expectations.

    Wishing you all the best,

      Thanks so much for feeling my pain, lovely. I would have loved for these masks to work out, because they are so inexpensive, it would have been perfect to keep a bunch of them stocked at all times. I’m gonna have to look into Innisfree or Etude House for sure.Btw, so sorry it took me so long to write back.

    What?! I had no idea Trader Joe’s had sheet masks… let alone, beauty products! Although they didn’t work out for you, I definitely want to try it for myself now!

      I appreciate the feedback, lovely. Maybe the grass is always greener on the other side? I’m a little obsessed with UK bloggers and their lifestyles – it all seems so exotic! I hope you have a beautiful 2019!
