The best face masks for every skin type
A face mask has superpowers to fix just about anything. Breaking out? Diet is trash? Haven't slept in a week? Face mask! But with the myriad of products on the market it’s hard to know which one is right for you and what is worth spending your hard-earned cash on. I’ve put together a list of masks I’ve tried, tested and would highly recommend so you can live your best face mask life.
To banish blemishes
Cosmedix Clear Deep Cleansing Mask
This mask was recommended for me when my acne was at its worst, I will never use another mask again for blemishes. This mask is as soothing as it is pore clearing and can be applied all over the face or spot treat pesky pimples and leave overnight.
For thirsty skin
Ultraceuticals Ultra Replenishing Mask
The ultimate drink for your skin or to soothe and replenish hydration levels in dehydrated or stressed skin. I always apply this mask when I’ve had a peel or intense skin treatment and after applying any clay based or drying masks (see above!) This can be left on overnight too.
Ready, set, glow
REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask
I pop this on when my skin is looking a little dull and lackluster. Essentially a gentle peel, this mask is formulated with a 100% fruit acid complex to help combat congestion, smooth skin, reduce fine lines and bring back that joie de vivre. Skin looks healthy and seriously glowy afterwards.
For pre-game prep
GO-TO Transformazing Sheet Mask
Is there anything Zoë Foster-Blake can’t do? The answer is no and the proof is in the latest product from her GO-TO Skincare range, Transformazing Sheet Mask. Designed to scare housemates and bring the zing back to your skin, this serum drenched sheet mask is packed full of all the good stuff to help hydrate, brighten, heal, even out and plump skin. Perfect when prepping for a big night out, recovering from a big night out or simply lying on the couch watching The Handmaid’s Tale.
Shine bright like a diamond
Clinique Even Better Brighter Moisture Mask
This brightening mask is quickly becoming a cult product in beauty cabinets everywhere, and for good reason. The insanely hydrating formulation works to even out skin tone, quench skin thirst and strengthen your skin’s resistance to future darkening. I apply this when my pigmentation is getting a little big for its boots and notice a remarkable change quite quickly.
To turn back the clock
VERSO Intense Facial Mask
Ok so this one’s a little luxe but if you’ve tried any of the VERSO skincare products, you’ll pick up what I’m putting down. Formulated with anti-ageing hero, retinol 8, this sheet mask helps to erase all signs of fine lines, wrinkles and plumps skin by stimulating collagen production. The result? Fresh, youthful, firm skin. It’s a real treat for the skin and worth the price tag too.
To keep your peepers fresh
Blaq Hydrogel Eye Mask
The best antidote for tired, puffy eyes, these gel masks are placed below the eye to help rehydrate and detox skin. Containing activated charcoal to help draw out impurities, they are perfect for when you’ve had a few too many Sauv Blancs or for before a big event. Pop them in the fridge for extra soothing.
