It has taken me a long time to find a face mask that I would actually recommend. I have tried so many over the years, and they have all been a bit meh. Other than the Clarins one I talked about here, which is really just a rich moisturiser. Now though, I have found two that I love, and use regularly.
Generally speaking, I do not like masks that have to be applied and washed off. I just find it all a bit of a faff, and to be honest the results aren’t usually worth the hassle. Peel-off masks are like the Marmite of the beauty world, either you find the idea repulsive, or – like me – you will find great satisfaction in very s-l-o-w-l-y peeling the thick layer off your face. The Formula 10.0.6 Get Your Glow On Brightening Peel-Off Mask is perfect for a fuss free treatment. Firstly, it smells divine. The papaya and citrus work at resurfacing and brightening the skin, and it also unclogs pores and helps to prevent breakouts. The mask itself is a very thick gloopy consistency – in fact too thick for the tube. The first time I used it, the sealed end of the tube exploded and made quite the mess. That aside though, I can honestly say that I become like a new person when I peel this baby off my face. My skin is left shining, happy, soft, and looking five years younger.
Even more hassle free are sheet masks. My current favourites are the Maskeraide Sheet Masks, in particular the All Nighter Hydrating Mask. Sheet masks, if you aren’t familiar with them, are so easy to use it’s ridiculous. Simply apply the product soaked cloth sheet to your face – attempting to line up the eye and mouth holes – and relax. They are very slimy and slippery, so it’s useful if you can lie down, because otherwise you will spend the whole 20 minutes or so trying to stop it sliding off. The beauty of sheet masks is that when the time is up, simply throw the sheet away, and rub in the remaining product. It couldn’t be easier, no mess to clean up, and wonderful glowing skin! What more could you want?!
