The Budget-Be-Damned Mask Treatments You Need
Whether you opt to save or splurge on your daily skincare and hair products, an occasional mask is more than an indulgence—and they can take your results to the next level. From detoxifying pores and smoothing lines (without injections) to restoring an overall more youthful appearance to your face and the hair that surrounds it, there’s a decadent treatment for virtually every need. Some of these masks may set you back more than an actual professional facial or hair treatment, but if you have the means what are you waiting for?
MDNA Skin Rejuvenator Mask Set
If $600 seems like a steep price to pay for a face mask—maybe the fact this Madonna-approved, Japanese-designed treatment comes with a dual-purpose tool helps reduce the sting. The Chrome Clay Mask is formulated with a powerful combination of volcanic ash, willow bark extract, orange essential oils, squalene and hyaluronic acid to purify pores as it brightens the skin and provides a major surge of hydration. The Skin Rejuvenator device then helps remove every last trace of the mask, and this tool can also be used in an upward direction to help enhance the penetration of serums and give the skin a visible lift.
Natura Bisse Inhibit High Definition Patches
If you have specific lines and want to avoid a trip to the dermatologist (or stretch the time between appointments) these targeted line-minimizing patches are the solution. Featuring two types of plumping hyaluronic acid along with conotoxin that works to relax the facial contractions that lead to expression-related wrinkles, these patches use a matrix of micro-needles that help drive these ingredients deep into the skin. For $440 you get 20 individual patches that you can use as you see fit—and you’re sure to see immediate improvement in skin smoothness and radiance.
La Mer The Lifting and Firming Mask
If you prefer a smoothing and sculpting mask you don’t have to rinse off, this one is for you. With La Mer’s signature Miracle Broth and Concentrated Lifting Ferment, you get a boost in skin firmness and enhanced definition on the face and neck—and significantly softer, more supple skin. Simply apply and leave on for eight minutes, then massage any remaining mask into your face for an extended treatment that lets you reap the skin-reviving benefits without taking up too much of your time.
Clé de Peau Beauté Vitality-Enhancing Eye Mask Supreme
A sheet mask designed specifically for the eye area, this hydrating and retexturizing treatment targets lines due to a loss of skin firmness and plumpness. As an added bonus, it also helps improve the look of under-eye bags, puffiness and other signs of fatigue with a potent blend of volumizing iris extracts along with brightening 4MSK and a complex of silk- and pearl-derived ingredients that work to prevent and improve signs of environmental damage. Ten minutes is all it takes to see visibly rejuvenated eyes—with an easy-to-apply and effortlessly removable mask.
Leonor Greyl Masque Quintessence
Your hair deserves a decadent treatment as well, and that’s where this restorative mask comes in. Featuring precious cupuacu and maknetti oils that help rejuvenate even the driest and most damaged hair, it’s a must for anyone who subjects their strands to highlighting, all-out bleaching or straightening for instantly renewed softness, shine and strength.
