We have so many questions when it comes to Love Island. Where do the girls get their nails done? Why won't anyone fall for Luke M? And why on earth would you imply that Finn was unfaithful to Paige in Casa Amor Love Island bosses? Why?! There's one other question though, that has been niggling us, and it involves a mysterious sheet mask.

Avid viewers of Love Island will have spotted this enigma of a mask multiple times so far in the season. Demi gave us a masterclass in multi-tasking when she set about blow-drying her hair whilst wearing said sheet mask. Luke T showed his pamper-loving side when an image of him donning the same sheet mask flashed up on screen, and even new boy Jamie proved he was happily himself at home as he donned the sheet mask whilst prepping for his first evening in the villa.

There's got to be something pretty special about a sheet mask that has the power to unite a whole Love Island villa, and we were determined to identify it. The Grazia beauty team turned Love Island sleuths caught up with the show's beauty sponsor to decipher exactly which mask was garnering such loyalty from the contestants.

With Great Lashes, Come Great Responsibility1 of 10

With Great Lashes, Come Great Responsibility

Dani Dyer's dedication to blow-drying (yes...BLOW-DRYING) her lash extensions, was testament to the fact that attentive aftercare is essential to prolonging their fullness. Got a set applied? Arm yourself with a wealth of spoolie brushes, and though we wouldn't recommend necessarily blow-drying them, giving them a gentle brush through during the day will keep them looking tip top.

Barefaced Is Beautiful2 of 10

Barefaced Is Beautiful

We know that Love Island beauties traditionally adore their glam time - quite frankly we live for those mirror-side conversations whilst they're preening pre-party - but they're also proof that bare is just as beautiful. The lesson? If you're on holiday and prone to reaching for your makeup bag each day, take a chill pill, and let your natural complexion shine. Need a bit of a boost still? Boost your glow and protect from the sun in one with Ultrasun's SPF 50 Tinted Face Cream, £26.

Buns Can Break The Internet3 of 10

Buns Can Break The Internet

Molly Mae sent the masses into meltdown with her super large bun that sat pretty at the top of her head most days in the villa. She finally gave in to the call and gave us all a tutorial on how to copy it, and would you believe, it's a twist-and-go jobby. Secure with a few kirby grips and your away. Boots Blending Grips, £1.50.

Lashes Are Everything4 of 10

Lashes Are Everything

It seems the key to looking good come what may on TV is boosting the flutter power of your lashes. Whether they were donning strip falsies, or had booked in for a set of semi-permanent extensions, the girls have consistently ensured they've upped the volume. Follow suit with a lash appointment, or make them occasion-wear with a set like Eylure London's Most Wanted in Gimme Gimme, £12.95.

Extensions Are Here To Stay5 of 10

Extensions Are Here To Stay

Love Island contestant after Love Island contestant have proved that there's no shame in indulging in a few hair extension wefts to boost your volume, in fact we reckon the likes of Molly Mae are responsible for a serious surge in sales, proof that there's no way clip-ins are a phase. Indulge your craving and try them out. There are numerous brands to choose from, but Molly has lent her name to a tong with Beauty Works, implying that their versions could be a great first port of call.

Fake Tan Is The Safest Tan6 of 10

Fake Tan Is The Safest Tan

The contestants' love of the bottled bronzing stuff is proof that even if you're spending your days in a glorious amount of sun, there's no need to top it up the risky way. The contestants were visibly on it with the SPF and spent their evenings layering on the faux stuff. Try one of our favourites, St Tropez Self Tan Purity Water Gel, £33, to get a sun-kissed look without damaging your skin.

Sudocrem Is A Spot Solution To Consider7 of 10

Sudocrem Is A Spot Solution To Consider

Montana was a Sudocrem obsessive in the villa. Come bed time she cleansed before dotting any blemishes with the stuff, then hit the hay. Why? Sudocrem might not be able to stop spots from forming, but if you've popped or picked one (everyone does!), its healing properties (it's full of zinc) speed up the fading process - that's some serious know-how. Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream, 125g, £2.99.

SULA? There Is A Solution8 of 10

SULA? There Is A Solution

Now, Olivia Attwood may have puzzled viewers by using her roll-on deodorant across her upper lip, but there was method in her madness (before you ask, we're not advocating this - do not deodorise your upper lips!). Olivia's SULA (sweaty upper lip alert) struggle was quite obviously real, and she obviously didn't have any blotting papers to hand - the best antidote to the problem. Try these hero DHC Blotting Papers, £4.50, and you won't look back.

Brown Lip Liner Is Back9 of 10

Brown Lip Liner Is Back

Faye Winter proved, mid-season seven, that brown lip liner is back and here to stay. She even revealed her go-to - Collection's Lip Definer Pencil in Cappuccino.

Kaz used a budget-friendly face serum during her season seven stint, and claimed that it kept her shine at bay during the day. You can shop the Boots Glow Essence Serum, £4, in question, here.
