One of the things I was most excited about when I left for my trip was SHEET MASKS!!!
Let’s face it – lazy nights happen. There’re just gonna be some nights when I’m too lazy to spend an hour on every single part of my routine, and a sheet mask is a lazy, but a fairly great option to hydrate and nourish my skin at night. Sheet masks are, admittedly, fairly expensive if you buy them as-is, and it’s possible that they aren’t… particularly good.
That’s why I looked up the best masks around in Taipei and Hong Kong, and one name that came across as fairly exclusive to Taiwan was L’Herboflore.
L’HERBOFLORE’s mission is to offer consumers high quality skincare at affordable prices. Every detail of our products, including packaging, mask material, ingredients and fragrance, are designed meticulously to be of the highest quality.
While lots of people on r/AB recommended visiting the store at Taipei 101, I spotted one at Eslite Spectrum 🙂
It was more like a stand in a department store, but it was like mask heaven There were shelves and shelves of various masks all over the store, and everything was so well-designed!!! All their products are designed by local Taiwanese artists.
The staff member (pictured!) (although that’s not me in the seat) who helped me was extremely friendly and was super patient with me… Considering I was bumbling around in Chinese. 2 years in JC without Chinese… and… my vocab was practically non-existent haha. I attempted to explain to her my skin concerns, and she carefully picked out a series of masks for me to use 🙂
There are more than 10 different kinds of just normal sheet masks – there are also sleeping masks, eye masks, special multi-step masks, and of course famous biocellulose masks. I did sample the clay and sleeping masks (pictured on left, above) as well.
Isn’t it pretty?
This is the brochure I received, and basically, there are 10 different series of masks:
- Aegean Sea
- Good Night Angel
- Oriental Herb
- Queen of Four Seasons
- Royal Countess
- Garden of Venus
- Party Sweetheart
The masks I purchased! (Please click to enlarge to see the absolutely beeeaaaoooootiful designs on each mask!!)
Purchasing a box of 64 for 3000NT (between my mother and I), we received a slight discount – typically, each piece retails for 50NT / $2.20. I also received a pack of eye masks (400NT / $17.20) that’d help with my dark eye circles.
I also wanted to note – mask stores in Taipei seem to have these amazingly cute samples they slap on your hand while you frequent the store!!! The top one is their bestseller Marine Collagen Resilience Lift Mask, and the bottom is the Hyaluronic Acid Moisture Energy Biocellulose Mask. There were definitely results seen from my time spent in the store I will be reviewing the various masks in time.
L’Herboflore can be found in Taiwan, as well as China.
