Face masks are a wonderful way to treat your skin to fresh ingredients that’ll leave you looking and feeling radiant.
So how do you choose the perfect one? As with all our products, our face masks are made with effects in mind—not cookie-cutter skin types. So, picking your face mask is as simple as considering how you’d like your skin to feel, then seeking out the products and ingredients that will get you there.
Face masks make quick work of cleansing the skin because of their clarifying bases of mud, clay or powder. Add some additional astringent and purifying ingredients, and your face mask becomes a deep-cleansing powerhouse. Look for ingredients like the tea tree oil in Cosmetic Warrior, ginger in Brazened Honey, peppermint in Cupcake and lemon juice in Don’t Look At Me. These ingredients liberate congested skin, leaving it feeling renewed and bright. We want to make sure the skin stays soft and supple even though it’s getting a deep clean, so you’ll also find softening ingredients like honey, murumuru butter and cocoa butter in these masks to ensure a balanced effect. Get ready for smooth, even skin!
If it’s a radiant, replenished complexion you’re after, look for rejuvenating, toning ingredients like seaweed and enzymic fresh fruit. 1,000 Millihelens Jelly Face Mask is full of fresh cleansing apple juice in a wobbly, mineral-rich base of carrageenan extract to brighten and soften in one sweep. Bonus: jelly face masks don’t need to be refrigerated and have a shelf life of four months!
Fresh papaya juice in Just To Clarify Jelly Face Mask delivers vitamins and nutrients to the skin, giving your complexion a radiant energy boost.
When your skin is craving some calm and comfort, look for time-tested soothing ingredients to bring your complexion back to its best. Rose appeases redness in Bunny Moon Jelly Face Mask and Rosy Cheeks Fresh Face Mask, while chamomile and lavender work their magic in The Birth Of Venus Jelly Face Mask. FOMO Jelly Face Mask and Catastrophe Cosmetic Fresh Face Mask both contain calamine powder, which cools and calms stressed out skin, leaving it relaxed with a unified appearance.
For a refreshing scrub, look for naturally exfoliating ingredients like coffee, aduki beans, almond shells, rice, walnut shells or millet. Keep in mind that all exfoliators are not created equal, and range from gentle and renewing to brisk and polishing! Oatifix Fresh Face Mask’s soft exfoliating action comes from oats and finely ground almonds to gently smooth and soften, while Mask Of Magnaminty and Cup O’ Coffee contain more scrubby exfoliators like ground aduki beans and coffee.
