In a skincare rut? These innovative new face masks are a great way to give daily skincare routine a boost.
A great face mask is essential for any relaxing night in. Not only do face masks feel soothing, but they will also leave your skin looking and feeling great the next day. We’ve found 7 of the best face masks out there for you and your girls to try on your next night out. These aren’t your average mud mask – each of these formulas contains unique healing mechanisms to get your skin in tip-top shape, and they all have very unique textures that you won’t find anywhere else on the market.
Dr. Brandt Magnetight Age Defier
This mask from Dr. Brandt is unlike any other mask on the market right now, not because of how it goes on, but because of how you remove it. The product contains small magnetic iron particles, and it comes with a small magnet, which you’ll use to remove the mask. The magnetic particles stimulate the skin’s natural healing process by pulling toxins out of your pores. The mask also contains a number of other helpful ingredients, including antioxidants to soothe the skin and firming peptides to lift the skin and help it appear more youthful. The mask is designed for all skin types.
The Glamglow Bubblesheet takes the charcoal mask trend and kicks it up a notch. This facial mask is oxygenating, which means it will start to bubble when applied to the face, creating a soft cushion-like feel. It contains a green tea cleanser that will leave your skin fresh and dirt-free, while the charcoal base helps to detox and pull impurities out of the skin. The sheet mask also contains a hint of fresh citrus, which adds a tingling feeling and helps to invigorate dull skin. The amino acid L-arginine helps protect the skin from aging. This product is appropriate for all skin types.
The bubble sheet slowly bubbles up, once you take it off you can scrub in the bubbles and rinse your face. The glowlace mask moisturizes your skin and gives it a glow.
Herbivore Blue Tansy Resurfacing Clarity Mask
This is one of many popular masks from the Herbivore line, but this one stands out due to its soothing natural ingredients and unique gel texture. The product has a blue-green color as a result of its natural formulation, which includes blue tansy, white willow bark, fruit enzymes, and aloe vera. The blue tansy and aloe vera have soothing, anti-inflammatory properties, while the white willow bark and fruit enzymes serve as natural exfoliants to remove the top layer of dead skin cells from your face. This face mask is particularly effective for those who struggle with cystic acne or clogged porse. It is designed for normal, oily, and combination skin, but may not be as effective for those with combination skin.
This mask is to be used 2-3 times per week and my sample had enough for about 3 tries. When I opened my sample, I found the scent of the mask somewhat fruity and floral, and it’s as if when you take a sniff at it, it kind of opens your senses, kind of minty-like. The consistency and texture of the mask itself are gel-like and it feels super refreshing and cooling on your face, you experience a slight tingling but nothing crazy.
Pola B.A The Mask
This Japanese facial mask is a very effective option if you’re looking to reduce the signs of aging. It has a unique foaming texture that is somewhat reminiscent of shaving cream. It’s designed to be used as the last step of your skincare routine at the end of the day, and can be left on all night long. The mask uses a mix of natural ingredients to help your skin look brighter and firmer. Olive oil serves as a natural moisturizer and delivers a boost of vitamins to your skin for health and healing. Wormwood strengthens your skin and helps it heal from damage, while fermented lotus seeds even out your complexion by removing hyperpigmentation and dark spots. Centella gives your skin a youthful glow by stimulating collagen production, which makes your skin look firmer, plumper, and more youthful. This mask is a financial investment, but if you’re looking for true anti-aging results, it’s hard to beat.
Sand & Sky Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask
This product is a highly enhanced version of your traditional clay mask. It’s made with real Australian clay and has a very thick texture that pulls toxins out of clogged pores. The detoxifying effects of the mask work best for those with combination or oily skin. The Australian clay makes the skin feel tight and smooth, removing excess oil and declogging pores. The mask also contains witch hazel, which soothes irritation and acne, as well as Kadaku plum, which lightens scarring and pigmentation. Mangosteen and pomegranate give your skin a shot of antioxidants to keep your skin healthy and help it heal quickly from damage.
I’ve been using this pink clay mask for about 2 or 3 months now. It claims to detoxify your skin, refine pores and brighten the skin tone. I’d say it does just about everything it claims. First off it comes with an applicator brush which is CRUCIAL to me. I love it. It is not as drying as other clay masks, it’s SO EASY to wash off, it smells so good imo, and my skin is all around clearer and more even after using. This is one of the best masks I’ve tried and im very particular about masks. The mask literally clears out my pores making my skin feel and look so much cleaner.
Dr. Jart+ Rubber Mask
Dr. Jart is known for its unique sheet masks, but this one really stands out from the crowd. The rubber mask may look a little intimidating at first, but it helps the nutrients in the mask penetrate the skin thoroughly. There are two steps to apply the mask – you’ll start by applying an ampoule pack all over your face, which has the consistency of the serum. Then, apply the rubber face mask sheet over the top. This mask comes in four different types: “hydration lover”, which delivers a shot of moisture to dry skin, “bright lover”, which revitalizes dull or uneven skin tone, “clear skin lover”, which unclogs pores and prevents acne, and “firm lover”, which reduces the signs of aging.
I’ve been using these masks for months now and they’re my favorite to use right before a special event or important day. After using this my skin looks instantly more plump and hydrated. I feel like my skin is already pretty firm so I don’t see any crazy firming but I don’t expect to. Mostly I love that these masks are like pressing the reset button on my skin. They all hydrate, plump, and brighten, and I swear I always wake up with better skin the next day after I use one of these.
Farmacy Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask
The Farmacy mask is designed to hydrate and brighten the skin while fighting signs of aging. It’s a heating mask, so you’ll notice a pleasant warming sensation when you apply it. It has a gel-like consistency in the pot, but when you apply and massage the mask onto the face, it transforms into a white cream. This mask uses a natural blend of honey to give the skin an antioxidant boost and soothe away damage. It’s also full of moisturizing glycerin and healing B vitamins.
The Farmacy Honey Potion mask is a warming mask that says it will leave your skin soft, supple, and plump with hydration. There have been women who noticed a glowing change in their skin after 2 weeks of use.
These unique face masks are a great addition to any skincare routine. Unique textures make your nightly skincare routine little more fun and exciting.
