A good face mask makes me feel productive. Productivity is a feeling I am longing for during these trying times. So I slap on one of my favorite masks. Then I wash my makeup brushes, fold laundry, cook lunch, pet the cat…you get the picture. When I wash the mask off I take a moment to admire my skin, stress breakouts and all.
It feels like uncertainty is here to stay for a while. When things are uncertain I turn to things I know bring me comfort, like watching She’s All That for the third time this week as well as throwing on a mask.
One thing I am absolutely certain of in these uncertain times is that these masks are fabulous. These five masks have been staples in my medicine cabinet for years, and are not going anywhere anytime soon.
This powerhouse mask purifies and soothes thanks to hero ingredients chlorophyll and spirulina. If you are into clean beauty this mask will absolutely pass your test. The ingredients are so clean you could mix them with water or lemonade and make a chlorophyll beverage. My personal favorite mixin with this powder mask is apple cider vinegar or honey.
Ginger Leaf and Hibiscus enhance this ultra creamy formula, that is designed for overnight use. I notice my pores appear smaller and my skin tighter(but not dry!) the morning after using this.
Natura Culina describes this mask as a yummy warm hug for your skin and I could not agree more. The anti-aging and clarifying formula features honey, a few types of clay and cranberry oil. This mask is thick in the best way possible. Typical clay masks dry down and make your skin uncomfortable. This creamy formula clarifies while being very comfortable.
The mask that changed my mind about masks. This mask is a treat. It hydrates and balances your skin in a way that is hard for me to even put into words. I love to use this mask as an overnight treatment to wake up glowing. Say goodbye to everything you thought you knew about masks.
The only sheet mask that made the cut, and truthfully one of the only sheet masks I have repurchased! This first time you use this mask you’re going to ask yourself is this supposed to happen? And the answer is YES. Put on this sheet mask and within a few minutes your face will be completly covered in bubbles. This mask is a savior for acne prone skin.
