5 Unique Face Masks To Add To Your Skincare Routine

#1: Glamglow Gravitymud Firming Treatment, $120, Sephora
A mask that can change into a brilliant chromatic colour? We’re sold. When applied onto skin, this peel-off mask evolves from a white paste into a silvery sheen, making your skin glow – literally. Ingredients like a Teaoxi complex (a blend of licorice and marshmellow leaf) help skin look and feel firmer, while hyaluronic acid and mineral-rich glacial clay boost skin resilience. Leave on for 20 to 30 minutes before peeling off the mask and rinsing off excess. #2: Dr. Brandt Skincare Magnetight Age-Defier, US$75 (S$103), www.sephora.com
Have you ever heard of a mask that peels off when it comes into contact with a magnet? Well, now you have. The magnetic properties in the mask’s iron-based formula reportedly reduces signs of ageing, stressed skin. Once product is spread over the face, leave on for five to 10 minutes and remove it by gliding the magnet over skin surface. #3: Givenchy Le Soin Noir Lace Face Mask, US$330 (S$452), www.sephora.com
Remember those intricate lace appliques on the faces of Givenchy models for S/S ’16? This lace face mask is built on that concept, but with the added benefit of caring for skin. The gel formula contains black algae sap concentrate, which reportedly renews and restores skin, and golden sap, which boosts collagen. How this should be used: First, release the gel into the mask compartment, then place the mask onto skin for 20 minutes.   #4: Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Mask, $159, Sephora
Yes, you read that right – this mask is made of real gold (a mixture of 24K and colloidal gold), which reportedly helps to minimise wrinkles and reduce the appearance of fine lines. It also comes with caffeine, which aids in tightening and firming up skin. Leave this on for 10 minutes and rinse off with cool water thereafter, and use it daily for best results. #5: Sephora Collection Bubble Mask Detoxifying & Oxygenating, $26
Formulated with white tea extract and vitamin E to protect skin from external environmental stressors, this mask is a gel-to-foam formula that transforms into a foamy froth when it comes into contact with air. Apply this once a week and let it sit for two to three minutes until it becomes frothy, then rinse it off with water.   Like this?
