Emoji face masks are a (slightly terrifying) thing - here's how to get them in Ireland

Creeping people out whilst hydrating the skin = the dream.

THE EMOJI PHENOMENON is now much bigger than mere smiley faces on your phone.

There are t-shirts, bedsheets, pillows, socks – you name it, it has emoji on it. It was only a matter of time before this extended to skincare.

For the uninitiated, sheet masks are an Asian skincare staple that’s becoming increasingly popular in Western countries – they’re soft, tissue-like masks enriched with serums for brightening, hydrating, and soothing the skin.

They’re already pretty terrifying as is…

I woke up like this!

Taiwanese skincare brand Petite Amie’s offerings are available to Irish people from Gilt, where a pack of three costs €27.54.

Each emoji is matched to a skin complaint – so the sunglasses emoji soothes, while the angry emoji is an after-sun product. Nice.

You can now terrorise your friends and family while hydrating your skin! Sounds like an ideal Friday night activity to us.
