Briana's Favorites: Face Masks

IMG_1926.JPG

Whether you’re looking for a relaxing few minutes or are in dire need of a targeted treatment, face masks can tackle a variety of needs. There are a wide variety of types of masks with a wide variety of purposes, but for the sake of keeping this short and sweet, I’ll be focusing on my favorite solid and gel - comes in a jar - style masks. 

Kiehl’s Cilantro & Orange Extract Pollutant Defending Mask

$50 CAD

This mask is designed to protect your skin from any pollutants in the air by strengthening your skin’s barrier. The orange extract helps to block pollutants from sticking to the skin and the cilantro builds up your skin barrier. Whether this mask does all of that is hard to say. What I can say is that leaving this on overnight will have you waking up in the morning with plump, hydrated, calmed skin. On my skin it’s helped to calm down blemishes and irritation and hydrated without making my skin oily.

Farmacy Honey Potion

$56 USD/$75 CAD

This mask is designed to be nourishing, hydrating, and glow-inducing. Featuring fresh from the farm purifying honey extract, hydrating echinacea, and glycerin, this product truly relies on high quality natural ingredients for truly great results. When massaged into the skin, this thick mask transforms into a cream and warms up. It’s a soothing experience, and one that will leave you with the plump skin you always dreamed of.

GlamGlow GravityMud

$79 CAD

 If you haven’t already marveled at pictures of this mask on the internet, I highly recommend a quick Google search. It’s a silvery liquid in the jar that transforms into a truly cool metallic peel-off mask on the skin. Licorice, marshmallow leaf, and Icelandic kelp are just a few of the ingredients that help firm your skin. Even if you don’t need a ton of help with aging skin just yet, this mask is simply a delight to use.

Peter Thomas Roth Rose Stem Cell Bio-Repair Gel Mask

 $52 USD

This dreamy pink mask smells just like fresh roses and was created to help with wrinkles and fine lines. The four types of roses this contains are perfect for toning the skin, which means this mask has an overall toning and brightening effect. It will even tighten your pores and decrease any redness in your skin. This is another one that can be left on overnight, so that you can wake up with hydrated and radiant skin.
