Life in Korea

The Face Shop Character Masks


Character masks have been a beauty trend in Korea since early 2015. If you are bored with your regular white masks, try these cute (others are creepy) character masks to add more fun to your beauty routine and face mask selfie. 🙂


There are several Korean cosmetic brands selling character/animal masks but I have only tried the ones from The Face Shop. I wanted to complete all the characters but panda and sheep masks were out of stock. I got the limited edition Rudolph and Santa masks instead.
