We’re suckers for a good mask sesh - not only is the process undeniably relaxing but it’s a great way to reset – plus, the feel-good pastime isn’t just about preserving good skin.
With masks for every concern from scalp health and feet care to firming butt formulas, there really isn’t a reason to leave any part of your beautiful self unpampered.
Block out a serious chunk of time this weekend babe - because we’re masking:
FIG FEMME Restore Vulva Mask
If there’s one part of our bodies that could use a little extra lovin’, it’s our vagina. And lucky for her, there’s a treatment mask intended just for that. This gee-shaped paper mask is infused with a pH-balanced serum that utilises a non-live probiotic to alleviate any unwanted irritation or itchiness. It also contains pineapple fruit extract to gently exfoliate, hydrate and refine texture, while willow bark soothes inflammation. Say goodbye to pesky in-growns and breakouts.
SEPHORA COLLECTION Foot Masks
Look, we’re not going to lie to you, sliding your foot into what is essentially a wet sock is not on the top of our list of pleasant experiences. Allow your little tootsies time to acclimate to these skin-softening booties, pop your feet up and settle in for twenty minutes of solid chillin’ to reveal soft, nourished feet. Follow up with a bit of pumice on any stubborn areas and some cuticle oil for that post-salon pedicure finish.
Bawdy Shake It Firming & Illuminating Butt Mask
If you’ve never had the chance to try a butt mask before, let us just preemptively say that these are great for people who find sitting still long enough to mask a challenge. You are quite literally forced to lie down, belly-first for the entirety of the treatment time. Now you can utilise this forced moment of relaxation to read a book if you wish but personally, we like to clock in a quick power nap. Set a timer for 15 minutes and let this bun-firming offering do its magic while you snooze.
Omorovicza Revitalising Scalp Mask
Scalp care is often overlooked, but given the amount of product we pile on our hair every day and the impact it has on the overall health and appearance of our locks, it’s an area we need to be paying more attention to. This Revitalising Scalp Mask utilises calcium and magnesium rich Hungarian moor mud to purify, as well as cooling menthol, calming camphor, exfoliating salicylic acid and nourishing oils for a healthy, clean scalp and lustrous, shiny lengths.
STARSKIN The Gold Mask™ Hand Revitalizing Hand Mask
Our handy digits do a lot of heavy lifting during the day (pun intended), so it’s important to take extra special care of these god-given tools when we can. Slide on a set of these glitzy gold foil hand masks for a luxurious experience and some seriously pampered palms. The double-layer mask contains an inner layer that nourishes with a blend of Bulgarian rose, shea butter and rosehip oil, while the outer foil layer creates warmth, maximising absorption for extra soft, smooth skin *chefs kiss*.
Frank Body Charcoal Body Scrub and Mask
We can’t go past a good body scrub and with summer well and truly here, our limbs are in need of a little extra lovin’. This scrub-mask combo from exfoliation aficionado Frank Body gives you all the refining benefits of a coffee scrub with the purifying properties of a mask thanks to the additions of charcoal, kaolin clay and tea tree. Say hello to a smooth, soft, beach-worthy bod post-shower.
