Face masks have been an essential part of my beauty regime for at least 3 years now. It's amazing how adding this simple step to my weekly routine has made such a huge difference. I just love how masks can get rid of dull and damaged skin to instantly reveal a healthier, glowy look, without any aggravation. I have quite a few masks, varying between hydrating ones, exfoliating and mud masks. Here are my absolute favourite ones, that I have repurchased and will continue to.
Glamglow Supermud Mask (£34.99 at lookfantastic) is a holy grail mask for me. It's a mud clearing treatment mask, filled with Glycolic, Salicylic and Lactic Acids. It's supposed to even out the skin tone, improve collagen and elastin, minimise the appearance of pores, exfoliate and absorb impurities. It's some sort of an 'all in one' wonder mask. And it does what it says on the tin! I haven't yet tried a mask that gives better results than this. After leaving it on for around 20 mins, my face feels so fresh and unclogged, it's incredible. This mask is fairly expensive, considering the size (only 30ml), but it's so good, I recommend trying it out.
Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant is my other 'can't live without' mask. I bought this after watching Lisa Eldridge's skincare video a couple years back. Lisa knows what she's talking about. This mask is really, really good!! No grains or scrubbing going on here. It relies on Lactic and Salicylic Acid to remove all the dead skin cells and help stimulate cell renewal. It's amazing! I can clearly see my skin looking brighter, softer and plumped up after only 15-20 minutes. A must have for me. I use it 1-2x a week. It lasts for ages, as you only need a small amount. You can find this mask now for £31.84 - 75ml (free delivery) here.
Sometimes I will also use a little sponge to remove the masks and help exfoliating further. It's nice and really cheap. I got mine from Liz Earle but you can find them in pharmacies/drugstores for less than £2 (here).
