Japanese beauty products are one of the most popular things to shop among foreign travellers today. Facial sheet masks are one of the most popular skin care products to buy in Japan, and hundreds of sheet masks are sold in different types. I have tried numbers of Japanese sheet masks so far, and in this article, I’d like to share my favourite Japanese sheet masks which are especially recommended to use for summer.
During the hot summer, face and body feel sticky from sweat while walking or for even just being outside. I personally hate to sweat when I’m drying my hair after bath. Don’t you agree? There are some sheet mask products which has a cooling effect and keeps your face fresh and smooth after use. So let’s check out my picks of best cooling sheet masks which are perfect for summer!
1. SABORINO Morning Mask: Fresh Fruit Cool Type

The mask works amazingly as face wash, skin care and moisturizing base in one step.
