I love face masks and you can call me a fan if you please as I do tend to use them twice a week most probably. The ones you see below do not consist of my entire collection but rather the ones I have been loving since the past month or so.
Some might find Face Masks excessive and time consuming to use more than once a week however unlike a decade ago, they have dramatically changed in texture (no peel off's thank god!) and the time they need to be kept on (from 5 minutes to overnight) making them an easy extension to everyday skincare.
All of these are tried and tested and absolutely brilliant. Something I would highly recommend for you to try out however below is just a breakdown of my favourites.
Starting with my favourite one, Ahava Hydration Cream Mask that I have been resorting to lately to replenish the dehydration level in my skin. It contains Aloe Vera, Shea Butter, Dead Sea Mud and Vitamin E as it's main ingredients. Yes I have combination skin but it has many a times been detected as dehydrated as well, which I believe are skin conditions that can coexist. So I have to opt for such intensely hydrating treatments now and then to keep skin supple and bouncy and avoid flaky, chapped areas.
It's an unusual creamy texture that I massage into the skin until it almost disappears and then leave on for 15 minutes or overnight if skin's feeling very dry. It does not break me out which is fabulous news and is more like an overnight cream that actually works at restoring moisture levels. It feels lovely and comfortable to apply leaving skin fresh rather than heavy and overtly moisturised. Give it a try between season transitions if your skin's behaving thirsty.
It smells gorgeously fruity and is perfect for when you have breakouts or if you find your skin looking dull and lacking lustre. I also help it to control the sebum level in combination skin and make it appear more balanced and easy to maintain. I can see myself getting a tonne of use out of it in the Summer. A great one for young problematic skin as it's quite mild and respects sensitive skin.
I feel my skin looks brighter, refreshed and more awake and if I am having a 'spotty' time of the month, the clay in this product helps sooth and dry out spots. Must-have for confused skin ladies in their 20's! Because it's good quality and not potent, I use it quite often to the extent that it's almost addictive.
