Snooze Control: The Latest Eye & Face Masks To Try
#1: If you’re wide awake: Origins Ginzing Peel-off Mask, $50
Removing peel-off masks can be a tricky and time-consuming affair, and this gel-cream is no different. With a fruit acid complex that gently exfoliates, and caffeine and ginseng to energise, it’s meant to be applied thinly over clean, dry skin, and left on for about 10 minutes. The instantly smoother and fresher-looking complexion makes the trouble worthwhile though.
#2: If you’re in a zen mode: Shiseido Vital-Perfection Wrinklelift Mask, $115
These eye patches contain pure retinol and the brand’s VP8 complex to soften the look of fine lines, brighten, hydrate and smooth skin. Slap on post-toner, leave on for 10 minutes, then remove, massaging in excess serum.
#3: If you’re ready to concuss: Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Overnight Firming Mask, $125
This has a combination of 12 amino acids and minerals to firm and repair skin while you snooze, and supposedly encourages skin’s natural renewal cycle so you look fresher the morning after. All you have to do: Apply after moisturiser, then hit the sack.
