First of all, let me set the scene, I usually do a face mask 1-2 times per week and Sunday night is by far my favourite. I usually have a long shower or bath, double cleanse my face and slather on one
of the following masks depending on my skins needs. Then its a cup of tea, Youtube or reading a book for the 20 or so minutes it takes to do it’s thing. After i’ve washed it off I follow with my usual skincare routine.
I’ve been a big fan of face masks for around 4 years now and have tried many in these years. The ones I want to write about are the only ones I’ve HAD to repurchase in this time and one that I use so seldomly as I never want it to end. It’s sort of my ‘special’ mask that I use before I have any event on and need my skin to really look it’s best.
MY TOP 4 FACE MASKS:
1.REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask > Well the name says it all really. This is my ‘special mask’ that I save for special occasions when I really want to treat my skin. The next day after using this mask my skin is just that, RADIANT! As I have quite sensitive skin I don’t use this mask too often as it is described as a ‘peeling’ mask that exfoliates the skin. It is full of lactic acid which is great for getting that glow.
2. Origins Original Skin Retexturizing Mask With Rose Clay > This is my latest find and i’ve only had this mask for a few weeks and it’s instantly become one of my favourites. As I said my skin is sensitive so this mask is great as it is effective yet so gentle. I feel like I could easily use this mask 1-2 times per week which is rare! I’ve found this mask to be a great ‘all rounder’. It produces a good deep clean, a gentle exfoliation and refines skin for a lovely fresh glow. Origins has always been one of my favourite face mask brands and are such great value for money!
3. Manuka Doctor Purifying Facial Peel > And peel it is. Like you get a free facial wax with this mask. It is not for the faint hearted that’s for sure. And a word of advice, do not get this mask anywhere near your brows! But seriously, if you are after amazing results, you need to try this mask. My skin has NEVER been so smooth after using a mask before (also could be a side effect from the facial wax?!) but easily one of my favs. As it is a peeling mask you can actually see the dirt in the mask after you have peeled it off which is so satisfying.
4. Origins Out of Trouble 10 minute Mask > This is the mask I use when my skin is going through some issues. Whenever i’m having a break out or my skin is so congested this is the one. It is full of Zinc and Salicylic Acid which targets break outs and seriously the next day they are on the way out. I can JUST tolerate having this on my skin for the full 10 minutes as it does tingle and almost feel like a burning sensation on my skin. I always expect my skin to be bright red when I wash it off but no, its so clam and clear. If you are struggling with break outs definitely give this one a try!
