To inspire a little face mask magic, we’ve gathered only the best to help you hydrate, brighten, tighten, and keep your skin looking flawless. Now all you have to do is to make sure you clear your calendar of all video calls.
Sure, it’s a sleeping mask, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use it throughout the day and allow it to soak in like you would if you were asleep. The Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Sleeping Mask is mixed with rosewater and rose extract which hydrates, smoothes, and helps strengthen the skin’s barrier. Hyaluronic acid is also added to enhance suppleness with a plumping effect. It also smells like a fresh bouquet too.
Dr. Barbra Sturm Face Mask
Seemingly simple in both packaging and name, the Dr. Barbara Sturm Face Mask is the molecular formula worth investing in. The product gives your skin an instant moisture boost with ingredients such as aloe vera and chamomile extracts to calm the skin. Meanwhile, kaolin clay leaves the complexion supple, while nourishing sweet almond oil and soothing purslane (which has demonstrated powerful anti-inflammatory, anti- bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties) are added to reduce the visible signs of irritation and redness.
Just as it indicates on the packaging, the Tata Harper Hydrating Floral Mask is a Multi-Hyaluronic Treatment, meaning that 1,000 sizes of different hyaluronic acid particles are used to help rejuvenate and replenish lost moisture. This mask is a solid solution for dry, dehydrated skin or uneven skin tones. Use as a mask and apply a thick layer over the face and neck, leave for 15 to 20 minutes, before massaging the skin with warm water and rinsing thoroughly. Alternatively, use as an overnight treatment.HK$760/1 fl. oz
