Okay, so it’s a no brainer that with all this mask wearing, our skin is in need of some extra TLC. Swap out your face mask for a different one full of skincare benefits that will help to protect your skin against “maskne” and other irritating factors.
I have an abundance of masks in my collection and truthfully, you can never really have enough. Just like other skincare products, every mask is different and there are so many different formulas out there that target different skincare concerns.
Every Sunday I like to put on a mask to help reset my skin for the week, but occasionally I will throw one on during the week as well in the morning to energize my skin for the day ahead. I have a few here in Montreal that I’ve been rotating in and out, and if you are on the hunt for a new one, then keep reading..
Tula Detox in a Jar Exfoliating Treatment Mask
Being the Tula freak I am, when I pulled out their Detox in a Jar Exfoliating Treatment Mask ($48 USD) out of a box when unpacking my beauty products from New York, I was excited to find it in there. I’ve tried a few of their masks but wasn’t aware of this one, making it even more exciting to try.
This blue clay-based mask is geared to exfoliate and detox skin, leaving it noticeably smoother and softer. It contains bentonite clay to exfoliate and draw out impurities, lactic acid to exfoliate and fight the look of dull skin, blueberry extract to hydrate and even out skin tone, turmeric root to reduce the appearance of inflammation, and probiotics to create a barrier to lock in moisture.
Apply this to the face, leave on for at least five minutes then rinse off to reveal bright skin.
Bliss In the Honey Mega Moisturizing Lavender Honey Mask
I’ve always had a thing for Bliss products after trying them out when I stayed at the W Montreal many many years ago. I thought their products were so luxurious and delicious smelling, plus the branding is so cute.
The Bliss In The Honey Mega Moisturizing Lavender Honey mask ($16 USD) is an intensely moisturizing honey mask (making it perfect for the chilly temps on the horizon). It contains honey and lavender oil to give you an instant boost of hydration and super soft skin.
Apply this to your skin, leave on for five to 10 minutes then rinse off to reveal bright skin. It’s great for super dry or irritated skin since it gets rid of dullness.
Other key ingredients include Acacia Honey, which protects against oxidative and environmental damage; honey extract to boost moisture and radiance; propolis extract to balance, heal, and soothe skin; squalene to prevent against moisture loss; cocoa seed extract to protect against damage; and lavender oil to calm the skin.
Apply this to your skin, leave on for five to 10 minutes then rinse off to reveal a bright and soft complexion. It’s great for super dry or irritated skin since it gets rid of dullness.
Volition Beauty Detoxifying Silt Gelee Mask
The Volition Beauty Detoxifying Silt Gelee Mask (C$79) is one of those masks that does it all. This mask is packed with nutrients to address a variety of issues. Pores looking and feeling clogged? Skin looking dull? Then this is the mask for you!
This mask contains black silt to cleanse and remove impurities from the skin, as well as plant-derived squalene to smooth skin and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also contains jojoba oil to hydrate and nourish the skin.
In case you aren’t familiar with Volition Beauty, their line is vegan, cruelty-free, gluten free and is reef safe (plus all their packaging is recyclable). This mask comes with a sponge as well that you use to help remove the product after it dries on the face.
Out of the three masks, this one does feature the grossest-looking formula (to be blunt), however it was designed that way since the brand says it takes dirt to remove dirt.
I know that when it comes to skincare, there are a million products out there, so adding more products into your routine may be a lot. I highly recommend picking up a mask or two to really give your skin some TLC, especially with all this mask wearing we have been doing.
