    "I have oily/combination skin, so my cheeks and chin tend to be drier than the T-zone. I love using the Pomegranate sheet mask to boost the moisture levels in my skin, but all the different types of masks are equal when it comes to hydration. Even after I remove the mask, there is so much product left on my skin and in the package that I use it the excess serum on my neck. I can immediately see brighter, smoother, and more hydrated skin after just 15 minutes on my face. I use them a couple times a week before I go to bed, so I wake up with my skin at its best." — Kaysey Davis
