Battle of the Sheet Masks: Sephora vs. TonyMoly

If you didn’t check out my first Beauty Battle post, make sure to check out my review of the Benefit POREfessional primer verses the Too Faced Hangover primer; and see who I chose as the winner!

Today, I’ll be sharing a similar post with my new favorite beauty product: sheet masks. I have been loving sheet masks since fall, and they have definitely changed my skin for the better. I’ve been trying different brands over the last few months, but I have constantly raved about Sephora’s sheet masks since last September.

After a few months, I found a strong competitor against Sephora’s sheet masks—TonyMoly’s “I’m Real” sheet masks. So, I thought it would be appropriate to share the positives and negatives of these two sheet masks.

Which mask is less expensive?

TonyMoly’s sheet mask! Sephora’s sheet masks are $6 whereas TonyMoly’s sheet masks are $3.95. For me, I definitely take price into consideration. Especially if I’m purchasing masks to treat my skin on a weekly basis. I don’t want to drop $24 when I could be spending $16. There’s a significant price difference between these masks.

Which mask is more saturated?

TonyMoly’s sheet mask. I thought Sephora’s sheet mask were saturated and dense with ingredients until I tried TonyMoly’s. I know some people find lack of saturation to be their biggest deal breaker for sheet masks, which I understand. Why would you want to buy a product that is supposed to treat your skin, but doesn’t have the ingredients to do so? If you care about your skin soaking in as much TLC as possible, stick with TonyMoly!

Which mask shows results more quickly?

Sephora’s sheet masks. I have to give this one to Sephora because I noticed a huge difference in my skin with hydration and brightness after one use. I even noticed it two days after using the sheet mask. Whereas with Tonymoly’s sheet masks, it takes an average of two or three times before I noticed a huge difference in my skin.

Which brand has more variety of sheet masks?

Sephora has eight types of masks for different purposes whereas TonyMoly only has six types of masks. If you’re looking for diversity in types of treatments for your skin, you’re definitely better off with purchasing sheet masks from Sephora.


Who won this battle?

Sephora sheet masks! Based on variety, results and overall quality—I have to say that Sephora sheet masks won this battle. However, I still think TonyMoly’s sheet masks are just as good if you’re looking for a brand that’s less expensive.

  • Thanks! I’m doing a Sephora run next week and I’ll be sure to try this.

    • Of course! You definitely won’t regret purchasing them!

  • I’ve tried the Sephora sheet masks before, but not the TonyMoly ones. I’d definitely give those a shot, but it looks like Sephora is still the way to go with these products! 🙂

    • I agree! Although, if I’m looking to save some money, I won’t mind repurchasing TonyMoly’s sheet masks!

    I’ve never tried either but I’m glad you posted the difference on both! I’ll have to try the sephora one sometime! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    • Thanks so much for your comment, Kristina! I truly appreciate it! You’ll love both masks, but you’ll notice results immediately after using Sephora’s sheet mask!

  • I love my Sephora sheet masks. My favorite is the pearl but I did try the pomegranate one and OMG, I’m in love! Thanks for sharing between the two!

    • I just recently picked up the pearl sheet mask myself, and I definitely love it! I have also used the rose mask quite a few times as well! I’m glad to hear there are other people who enjoy them just as much as I do!

  • I started seeing these lately at my local Sephora and never thought about picking one up, but it seems like I might try it!
