While sheet masks still hold a special place in our hearts, rubber masking is the latest Korean beauty trend that we simply can't get enough of. And once you witness an application - you'll totally understand why.

When the mask is applied, it creates a completely seal-proof barrier for the skin to essentially force-feed your face with a hit of hydration and nutrients.
