I can’t think of many things better than relaxing on the weekend with your feet up, reading a great book, or watching your favourite TV series on Netflix. And in my opinion, these activities are made 4627316957 times better with none other than a face mask, something I try to do at least once a week (albeit, with varying success).
To bring in the weekend, I thought I would share three of my go-to face masks for when I’m in need of a bit of a pamper session.
Sukin Anti-Pollution Facial Masque
I love Sukin products in general (read my review on the brand here), and so far, their masks are no exception.
My favourite of their’s I’ve tried has to be their charcoal based mask. This is a clay/mud type mask (my favourite kind) that claims to be ‘anti-pollution’ and ‘oil balancing’. As it contains charcoal, it is great for drawing out those nasty toxins that can clog up the skin and is always one of the first products I reach for when my skin is breaking out in a bit of a hissy fit.
My one critique, however, has to be the smell. It’s not the worst thing I’ve ever smelled, but it’s definitely not something I’d want to be made into a perfume anytime soon. In saying that, it makes my skin feel amazing, so the smell is a small price to pay.
Formula 10.0.6 Take Back Control Mud Mask
Much unlike the first mask mentioned, this stuff smells so good I wish I could eat it! The scent reminds me of a lamington and considering the mask contains coconut and cacao, it’s no surprise it reminds me of the chocolatey dessert.
As previously mentioned, I’m a massive fan of mud masks and Formula 10.0.6 make some of the best, in my humble opinion. This one, in particular, has oil controlling properties which are a great match for my combination-oily skin, especially as we head into summer in Australia.
Garnier Hydra Bomb Tissue Mask
Although I do prefer mud/clay-based face masks, I do enjoy a sheet mask every now and then, so I thought I would include one.
When in the mood for a sheet mask, my go-to ones are from Garnier. They’re affordable, convenient and effective. Unlike clay masks, they provide much less mess and are quicker and easier to apply and remove, leaving my skin feeling smooth and hydrated.
What’s your favourite face mask?
