2. Tatcha Luminous Deep Hydrating Lifting Mask
This sheet mask from Tatcha has a cult following for a good reason. Infused with Okinawa red algae and hyaluronic acid, it works to revitalise the skin’s structure while deeply nourishing problem skin that’s prone to irritation. The product is also powered by Japanese anti-ageing superfoods, which aids in reducing the appearance of fine lines and restoring radiance over time.
3. La Mer Intensive Revitalising Mask
La Mer’s Intensive Revitalising Mask offers a luxurious facial experience with a creamy formula that will give your skin a much-needed boost. It’s powered by the brand’s exclusive Revitalising Ferment—a fusion of marine algae and sea minerals—to soothe irritated skin and protect it from free radicals. Like the other hero products from La Mer, the mask is crafted with a cell-renewing elixir named Miracle Broth™, which moisturises the skin and delivers a glowy complexion in just eight minutes.
4. Kora Organics Noni Glow Sleeping Mask
Give your skin some TLC and achieve a supermodel-worth glow with this sleeping mask from Miranda Kerr’s brand, Kora Organics. This overnight treatment is formulated with certified organic silver ear mushroom, coconut milk and botanicals, which work together to reduce redness, calm the skin and even out skin tone. It also helps eliminate the appearance of wrinkles, leaving a rejuvenated, smoother complexion in its wake.
5. Dior Le Grand Masque
This face mask from Dior provides all the results you want from a mask: intensive hydration, more even skin tone, and most importantly, radiance. Massage it over your face, and there’s no doubt that you’ll love its luxuriously rich texture of rose extracts, jojoba esters and mango butter seeping their goodness into your skin. An effective treatment aside, its elegant packaging is also a sight to behold, making it a welcoming addition to your vanity.
6. Drunk Elephant F-Balm™ Electrolyte Waterfacial Hydrating Mask
Can’t make it to a facial? No problem. You can count on this hydrating cream mask from Drunk Elephant as it does a great job at reviving dullness and soothing irritated skin from day-to-day stress. Formulated at the ideal pH level of 5.7, the treatment is designed to restore the moisture levels in skin, heal blemishes and improve uneven texture.
Like other products offered in Drunk Elephant’s range, this product is also from the “Suspicious 6” ingredients—essential oils, drying alcohols, silicones, chemical screens, fragrance or dyes and SLS—meaning that’s safe for sensitive skin types. It can also be worn to bed as an overnight mask and layered with Virgin Marula Oil for an extra dose of nourishment.
7. Aesop Primrose Facial Cleansing Masque
This clay-based mask from Aesop is the perfect option for those suffering from stress-induced breakouts. Suitable for oily, combination and blemish-prone skin types, it’s enriched with rose geranium, primrose seed and sage leaf to remove impurities and clear out clogged pores, while simultaneously nourishing the skin, leaving your complexion with a silky-smooth texture.
8. Chanel Camellia Repair Mask
Chanel’s Camellia Repair Mask is the perfect antidote to dry, sensitive skin. Boasting a long list of calming ingredients including camellia wax, hyaluronic acid and glycerin, the deluxe formula has a wonderfully creamy texture to condition your skin. Aside from offering deep moisturisation, it also helps maintain an optimal water level in cells and protect the skin barrier.
9. Fresh Floral Recovery Calming Mask
Designed for those with sensitive skin types, Fresh’s Floral Recovering Calming Mask is an absolute dream.
