Sometimes we all need a little at-home pampering, am I right? A good face mask and a good book are two of my favorite ways to treat myself. I try to keep myself stocked with a variety of face masks and eye masks for any time that my skin might need a little refresher. While I still like to pick up new ones now and then, there are a few face masks that I almost always have around…and a couple that I buy in minis so that I can toss them in my carry-on when I travel.
My Current Favorite Face Masks
1. Origins Drink Up Intensive This is my absolute favorite moisturizing face mask. It’s a sleep mask, and it’s perfect for refreshing your face after flying (that tends to dry out my skin). I keep a full sized tube of this mask in the house AND buy it in minis…it’s just that good. If I find myself in an Origins shop, I also grab a couple of minis of their Original Skin Retexturizing Mask. My skin is fairly sensitive, so I can’t use this one as often as the Drink Up Intensive mask.
2. Sephora Eye Masks You can almost always find these in the checkout line at Sephora, but they also have a separate display in my local store. My personal favorites are the Green Tea and the Rose Eye Masks, plus I picked up an Orchid one to try next. They each have a different purpose, that you can find on the front of the package–the Green Tea is refreshing, the Rose is ultra moisturizing, and the Orchid is anti-aging and smoothing. They have a few more choices, too, so pick up a variety if you decide to give them a try!
3. Cosmedix Detox, Restore, and Glow, c/o I had the chance to head over the the Cosmedix headquarters and try out these three masks a few weeks before they were officially released and I fell in love! They’re all pretty great, but my personal favorite is the Glow Bamboo Brightening Mask. It’s got a little bit of a texture to it, so it smooths the skin surface and helps with uneven skin tones. I usually multi-mask, and apply all three of these to different areas of my face. My skin loves it, too!
