L’Oréal Paris Pure Clay Purifying Mask
Carli Alman, BEAUTYcrew Editor
"As for most people who have combination skin, my oily T-zone is the bane of my existence, especially my chin area. I tend to get quite congested and breakout there, so when I feel like it’s a bit more out of control than usual, I like to apply this mask just to that area to help get things in order. It gives the area that ‘deep clean’ feeling, without drying it out."
Endota Charcoal Detox Mask
Erin Docherty, Beauty Writer BEAUTYcrew
"If there’s one thing my skin loves to do, it’s to breakout at the worst possible time – just cuz. I’ve recently started using Endota Charcoal Detox Mask a couple of times a week to try and keep those pimples in check – and it’s fast becoming one of my staples. Not only does it give my skin a much-needed refresh, but I’ve noticed less congestion around my chin and nose. I also love using it as an overnight spot treatment!"
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrogel Mask
Isobel Larkin, Beauty Writer BEAUTYcrew
"The Neutrogena® Hydro Boost® Hydrogel Mask is one of my favourite go-to masks. I love using this one to prep my skin before doing my makeup to plump my skin and give it a solid dose of hydration."
Kora Organics Turmeric Brightening and Exfoliating Mask
Adriana Donnola, Deputy Editor
“ I use this exfoliating mask a few times a week and just love it. On days when my dry skin is suffering from a lack of sleep, I really notice how much healthier it looks afterward and I use less foundation too. A good tip is to pop it on before you get in the shower to minimise the mess when washing it off. Results-driven, clean beauty is a priority for me and this organic tube of goodness ticks both boxes. “
SK-II Facial Treatment Mask 6 pcs
Arielle Tsoukatos Senior Digital Beauty & Lifestyle Editor
"I reach for these luxurious masks when I need a moment for a little self-care. What better way to treat yourself than with a nourishing facial treatment? Packed with vitamins, amino acids and minerals, these masks enhance skin tone and replenish your skin."
