I’m more than halfway into the 365 Masks Challenge where I test one mask a day for a year so I decided that it’s time to share with you some of my recent favorites. Especially because my favorite luxury skincare retailer Space NK is currently running a promotion that you cannot miss. They are giving $20 off every $100 you spend – which is like FREE MONEY! The shopping event called Space NK Explore Summer Event starts on August 7th and ends at midnight on August 13th so there is enough time to pick all of your favorite products. Happy masking and happy shopping!
If there is one thing I learned during the mask challenge is that you really have to consider your skin type and concern while shopping for a perfect mask. Saying so, I separated my favorite masks from the challenge into a few categories so it’s easier for you to make up your mind. I also included under eye and hair masks – because who doesn’t like to indulge in those, right?
Kat Burki Complete B Vital Hydration Face Mask // I started using this mask last year when I went on a 1.5 months trip to Europe. Flying every few days or so was tough on my skin and this deeply hydrating mask was the one and only product that helped me to look presentable. If you are struggling with dehydrated or sensitive skin, you must try this mask – it will rejuvenate and regenerate your skin so it looks hydrated and glowing!
REN Evercalm Ultra Comforting Rescue Mask // This mask features the word “rescue” in its name for a reason. Designed for sensitive skin, it saved me so many times when my skin was irritated after a facial or new foundation that didn’t work for my skin. The mask has a luxurious cream consistency that puts your skin into a gentle cocoon and calms it down. If you are on a sensitive side, I cannot recommend this mask enough!
Omorovicza Midnight Radiance Mask // I tried this overnight mask just a few weeks ago, but I’m already obsessed! It features a delicate gel consistency that miracly transforms your skin overnight. I used it before an important event on top of my night cream and I experienced the best skin day ever. In fact, over the last few weeks, I’ve been using this radiance mask over my all-time favorite sleeping mask.
Eve Lom Rescue Mask // I’ll never stop raving about this mask as it’s the product I keep coming back to every single week. As you already know, I have acne-prone skin and I’m wearing makeup daily so it’s crucial for me to deep-cleanse my skin every so often. I usually put this multi-award-winning mask on Sunday evening while watching Netflix so my skin is in its best condition for the upcoming week. Highly recommend it!
Sunday Riley Saturn Sulfur Acne Treatment Mask // I always have a tube with this mask on my counter for then those days of the month come as it helps with my hormonal acne. I apply this potent sulfur mask onto “volcano” breakouts on my chin every other day – and they disappear much quicker. I recommend using it only on the small areas with zits though as it could irritate your sensitive skin areas.
Tula Exfoliating Treatment Mask // I’ve been using and loving this brightly colored mask for years and I feel that it was one of the products that helped me to get rid of acne. In case you are not familiar, Tula is famous for their probiotic ingredients that balances your skin and make it look healthier. If you are struggling with acne or have combination skin type, I cannot recommend this mask enough!
Tata Harper Clarifying Mask // When I feel that my skin is congested and just not clear, I use this cool-looking green mask to even out my skin and get rid of blemishes. While this mask is called “clarifying” it’s actually a multi-faceted mask that also evens out skin tone, eliminates impurities and exfoliates your skin. In other words, if you are looking for an all-in-one kind of mask, this is it!
REN Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask // Get ready for the instantly glowing appearance with this superhero mask! Every time I need to look presentable for an event or meeting, I apply this illuminating mask as it delivers that glow in a matter of minutes. No wonder it received InStyle Best Beauty Buys Award in 2018 – it’s amazing!
Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask // This mask could tingle upon application, but it’s so worth the trouble! This hypo-allergenic, all natural and vegan mask is suitable for all skin types and concerns. Whether you are struggling with enlarged pores or dull-looking skin, put this mask on to instantly reveal naturally younger-looking skin. I’m such a big fan of this mask that I recently started using Tata Harper’s recently launched Resurfacing Serum – it delivers incredible results too!
111SKIN Rose Gold Brightening Facial Treatment Mask // At first, this mask grabbed my attention because it’s rose gold – how instagrammable is that? But when I put it on, it instantly became my favorite anti-aging indulgence. The mask features 24 Karat Gold and Silk Amino Acids that are designed to smooth your skin and make it look radiant. The mask itself is sparkly – I love applying my foundation right on top of these glowing particles for the most glowing skin day ever. Obsessed!
Under Eye Masks
Rodial Dragon’s Blood Eye Mask // This mask is quite challenging to apply – it’s so thin that it’s hard to grab with your fingers – but it’s so worth the trouble! I rarely see such immediate results with using under eye patches, but these bio-cellulose patches are amazing. These days, I keep a pair of those in my bag for when I need to instantly look less tired.
Patchology FlashPatch Restoring Night Eye Gels // Technically speaking, you have to use these under eye gels at night, but I prefer applying it before I do my makeup. The deeply hydrating formula of this mask (hello, squalene!) ensures that my under-eye concealer doesn’t look too dry.
Christophe Robin Regenerating Mask // At this point, you probably already know about my obsession with all things Christophe Robin and this hair mask is not an exception. As a girl with color-treated hair, I can’t recommend enough this creamy nourishing mask that makes my hair so much more manageable and soft. Love it!
Rahua Omega 9 Hair Mask // If you are into clean beauty, this mask is a must-try. Featuring a unique mix of ungurahua oil and quinoa protein, this mask delivers instant shine to your hair – all without using any harsh chemicals. Talking about Rahua, I also want to mention their latest shampoo and conditioner combo that I’m obsessed with – it smells SO good!
Rossano Ferretti Vita Rejuvenating Hair Mask // When my hair color starts to wear off, I make sure to get heavy on this hair mask. It contains coconut and avocado oils that restore my hair from the inside out and all sorts of extracts (fig, rosemary leaf, and radish seed) that bring back the shine. I love how heavy and creamy this mask is – it’s a perfect weekend hair treatment!
