It feels like forever since I last posted something skincare related. So I thought I’d come back with a bang and give you my 3 favourite face masks.
You know I’m a huge lover of face masks. I do one pretty much once a week, at least. I love how relaxing they are, the feeling of taking them off and then the feel of my skin once I’m done. So today, I’m going to take you through my top 3 and explain why I love them so much.
Number one on the list and to the surprise of nobody, the Glossier Moon Mask. From the moment they released this, I knew I was going to love it. If a mask has the word ‘moisturising’ in the title, I’m sold. I had read so many reviews on this before buying it and they were all so varied, but in a good way. What swayed it for me was when I heard Estee Lalonde do a review saying she used it as an overnight mask.
I really love how easy this mask is. It’s a creamy/ gel mask that you just apply all over the face and leave. The guidelines are for about 20 mins however I tend to leave it for longer. I apply this in the early evening and leave it on until I’m getting ready for bed and doing my evening routine. It really is a no-fuss mask but with maximum results. This is perfect for the winter when my skin tends to be a little more dry and just needs that hit of moisture.
Oh boy, how I love a tissue mask. Yes, you look like a complete freak when wearing them, but they’re just so good. I prefer these in the summer but I do wear them all year round. Again, a great mask if you’re looking to add a whole tonne of moisture to the skin. A little more fussy than other masks as the application of them can sometimes be a little fiddly, however once it’s on, it’s pretty freakin’ great.
Again, love to use these in the evenings when I’m getting ready to sit down and watch TV. I can just apply this and let it completely soak in for a good hour or so. Then once I’m ready to take it off, I peel it off but massage the remnant’s into my skin. It’s a mask that just keeps giving. Again, perfect for loading your skin with moisture.

And last but not least, the L’Oreal Pure Clay Masks. I love these so much but for the opposite reason to the others mentioned in this post. The Pure Clay Masks are definitely heavier on the skin and tend to leave my skin feeling pretty dry. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, if used at the right time. Let me explain why.
You know those days when your skin is feeling clogged up and you just want to completely detox. When you’ve been adding product after product, moisture mask and moisture mask and your skin just needs a big hit of the reset button. That’s when I’d use this. This mask tends to get rid of all impurities in the skin, really gets into all the pores and works it’s magic. It’s a great mask but not one to use all the time.
Face masks really are an essential piece to the skincare jigsaw. If you’re not on the masking bandwagon, then hop on, we’re going for a ride!
