Ahhhhhh face masks. I love face masks, they are a core part of my beauty ritual to do a mask. I’d say I mask about twice, maybe three, times a week. Usually I go for double the mask power, and if the weeks or day’s been very rough I’ll indulge in a three part masking saga. So, what masks are on my rotation at the moment? These little beauties! More info coming at you in three… two… one.A good cleansing mask is a must in any routine, I’m a believer in having one that packs a major punch and one that’s a bit more gentle. The First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Purifying Mask With Red Clay is the one I crack out after a day out in the city smog. I’ve written about it in the past because it’s a solid mask that cleanse but doesn’t hurt. As a lover of peel off masks it appeals to me endlessly, unlike some other masks it doesn’t pull out hair or leave my skin feeling tight. For a more gentle cleanse there’s the Aesop Parsley Seed Cleansing Mask which behaves like the traditional clay mask but gentler and easier to remove. It’s also got a cool experience as the mask dries it gets lighter and lighter except for where it’s extracting the gunk in your skin.
For those lack lustre skin days there’s nothing better than a brightening mask. Whilst I love the Oskia Renaissance mask, recently I’ve been using the Origins Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay. It’s a mix between and exfoliating mask and a clay one, and leaves your skin brighter and lighter feeling. It’s a little hard to remove, so I suggest a hot cloth and a gentle hand. It’s well worth the effort for a smoother and healthier looking complexion. Last of all is my favourite: a moisturising mask! This one is the Glossier Moisturising Moon Mask, it’s got a light and fluffy texture and has the colour of clouds. You can leave it on in a thick layer for 15 minutes and then wipe off, or do as I do. I simply layer it on top of my night time serum and hop off to bed.
