I recently came home from a rough day at work and could not wait to wash my makeup off and get myself into a face mask as quickly as possible. It was at that point that I realized I actually have quite a few face masks that I really enjoy, but have never shared them with you!
Exfoliating masks, both physical and chemical, are definitely my favorite category, but I’ve also got a fantastic hydrating mask and a few clay ones to help me manage my occasionally rebellious skin. These are my top six face masks (and the only ones I currently own).
Paula’s Choice Skin Recovery Hydrating Treatment Mask ($24.00/4oz) – I initially purchased this as an experiment to see if it could replace my beloved Drunk Elephant Lala Retro cream as a much more affordable “dupe”. It wasn’t quite what I was looking for in my night cream, but it’s actually a fantastic leave-on mask that I now absolutely swear by when flying/traveling. It’s a thick cream that can be used daily or as needed, you don’t need to wash it off, and it makes my skin feel so happy. I brought this with me on our big trip to Italy in the fall and it was a serious face-saver for 30 hours of travel and a road trip through half of Italy. I would absolutely repurchase this.
