I'm often asked by readers and friends asked what my favorite face mask is, and I have tried plenty over the years. I've tried a whole slew of masks that have come in Birchboxes and even tried the inexpensive but severely drying Aztec Secret Clay Mask (don't do it if you have sensitive skin!), so I've got a good idea of the best ones out there.
Now here's a round up of those that I like to keep on hand for everything from hydrating to clearing pores. None of these will make your skin feel like a parched desert, which I have found with many a mask. Two of them, Glam Glow and Dr. Jart Water Replenishment, are actually like a glass of water for your skin, while Miracle Skin Transformer Mud Mask is a great once weekly way to deep clean your face, I forgot to include this one in the collage below, but I absolutely love the WEI Manuka Bee Venom Mask for a softening, renewing treatment.
Just make sure you have a relaxing evening at home, by yourself, to indulge in one of these masks. A couple years back, I was lounging around my house one Sunday evening when two guy friends decided to pop by... the looks on their faces were priceless when they found me wearing a green clay mask. So confused and horrified. Sorry guys, beauty takes some behind the scenes effort!
So do you have a favorite mask I should try? Any other great hydrating options out there?
