A good sheet mask is everything you need to redeem yourself after cheating on your skincare routine. No matter how much sleep and skincare steps you missed, a sheet mask session will make you feel incredible (and put all skin-sins behind you!). There are many levels of sheet masking and a bio-cellulose mask is hard to beat, especially when it is made of pure coconut. Ladies and gents, please meet Leaders 7-Wonders coconut masks, the best skincare encounter you will have this January!
These luxury masks come in various flavors and you can find 5 different masks that will help you achieve the most wanted skincare results. Today I’m picking the detox, super-food-powered Leaders 7 Wonders Amazonian Açaí Revitalizing Mask. Because, well, who doesn’t need some extra life? I should probably disclose my love of açaí berries, as I have adored their energizing properties (and rich flavor) for as long as I remember. Açaí is a typical Amazonian fruit and is a common custom for Brazilians (especially those living in the Northern region of the country) to have a nice bowl of açaí topped with granola, honey, and banana as dessert or as a snack. If you're feeling low and drained, açaí is what you need. Now imagine if you could not only eat those wonder berries, but also have their unique properties delivered directly to your skin? That's what this mask is about. Açaí berries are a plentiful source of anti-oxidants, vitamin C and E, and fatty acids, some of the most-wanted ingredients in skincare! That means açaí has the potential to bring life back to your skin by fighting free radicals, stimulating collagen production, sealing moisture on your skin and improving firmness. Count me in.
Leaders recommends this mask to those exposed to pollution and urban environments, for its capacity to resurface and rejuvenate tired, dull skin that has been suffering from premature (pollu)-aging. I think this described 9 out of 10 people I know (including myself)…
Among the ingredients you’ll find chamomile, coconut, sugar maple, and thyme extracts, in addition to, well, açaí berry oil. Retinyl Palmitate, a hero anti-wrinkle active, gives this mask an extra anti-aging punch. It’s important to highlight that this ingredient is perfectly awesome and new research has cast away any doubts on the safety of retinyl palmitate (a mild form of retinol) in skincare, the reason why you’ll see dermatologists prescribing this baby to anyone looking for less wrinkles and clearer skin. Yet, because anti-wrinkle agents promote skin cell renewal, we recommend you use this mask at night and apply sunscreen the morning after (you should always wear sunscreen, but that’s even more so when applying resurfacing actives such as vitamin c and retinol).
If you love sheet masks but have always been puzzled by their fit, bio cellulose will relinquish those worries. Created to adhere seamlessly to the skin, these extra fine masks will match just any face shape and will mold to your own needs. You’ll find a delicate, yet resilient layer of bio-cellulose resting between two protective films. The not-so-secret secret to perfect application is to remove BOTH protective films and discharge them. Simple as that. You can either remove the first film and lace that side of the mask on your face before removing the external film or remove both films and apply the coconut bio-cellulose mask directly onto skin. I love how it manages to cover my nose and not fall onto my eyes, preserving my natural contours. Leave it on for 20-25 minutes. Don’t worry if by the end of the 25min the outside of the mask feels dryer than your usual cotton mask. Underneath, it’s pure skincare glory (and moisture!).
- If this is how it looks, you forgot to remove both films!
- There you go!
My experience with Leaders 7-wonders is one of pure joy and awe: they leave your skin feeling smooth, velvety and glowing. Revitalizing goals: checked. Also, I’m happy to introduce some capable anti-wrinkle actives into my routine, even if weekly. If you have very sensitive skin, this is the perfect compromise. Contrary to most sheet masks, albeit super moist, these won’t feel like a damp sheet. That should not trick you into dismissing bio-cellulose, they are true hydration powerhouses. And did I mention soothing? Yes, these are calming and reduce skin-stress, sending away bad skin days.

This is an all-round, all skin types mask and I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t love it. If you are in your early 20s and have no signs of early aging, this is a preventive measure. If you are in your mid-20s and early 30s, you can definitely put these to good use. If you’re above 40, well, the anti-aging ingredients here are all yours to love!
