As much as we love a professional facial, sometimes it’s just easier to slip into our pyjamas and treat ourselves to a pampering in the comfort of our own home. So when we were tasked to evaluate the best products for the ultimate at home spa ritual for this year’s Prestige Beauty and Wellness Awards, we were prepared for a true state of relaxation and beautification. When we came across a product that was equally nourishing as a before bed routine as well as an early morning revitalizer, we knew we found a winner. The clinically-inspired and science-led beauty brand 111SKIN ticked all the boxes when it came to their hydrogel mask, offering the R&R we are always after.
At Home Spa Winner: The Hydrogel Mask
Forget flimsy sheet masks. The satisfyingly thick 111SKIN Rose Gold Brightening Facial Treatment Mask takes at-home — or midair, if that’s your thing — pampering to a luxurious new level. Simply peel off the outer layers, apply to the face, and allow the pure-gold and rose damask extracts to sink into the skin while silk amino acids, niacinamide, hyaluronic acid and centella asiatica extracts go to work on wrinkles, fine lines and uneven skin tone. After 20 minutes soaking up the serum-like nectar the mask is coated with, we definitely feel a little bit brighter and a whole lot hydrated.
Special Mention: Sub-zero De-puffing Eye Mask
111SKIN goes beyond just your face. For a more targeted treatment, the Sub-zero De-puffing Eye Mask does just the trick. Inspired by the invigorating effects of the extreme cold, the hydrogel mask tackles the first signs of fatigue that are normally found around the eye area. In just 20 minutes, eyes are de-puffed, undereye bags are reduced, dark circles are erased and even wrinkles are smoothed out thanks to the tightening and contouring qualities of tetrapeptide and marine complex. For an extra cooling effect, store in the refrigerator for even more intensified results.
111SKIN says this bestselling mask is a celebrity and supermodel favourite, and it seems there are selfies to prove it. Ashley Graham posted it on Instagram Victoria’s Secret models used it before their shows and Priyanka Chopra is rumoured to have used it before pal Meghan Markle’s wedding.
