Face masks have become a staple in my skincare routine over the past years. I love the added boost of benefits they have given my skin. Also its a total pamper routine that allows me to feel indulgent and relaxed making it so great for my mental health too (lol). I like to do detoxifying face masks at least twice a week, an exfoliating mask at least once a week, and I’ll use the Glossier moisturizing moon mask pretty frequently especially during this current state of dry winter air. Here are my absolute favorite face masks that have helped my skin in no particular order.
I love Skinfood Black Sugar Mask Wash Off and Skin Food Black Sugar Honey Mask Wash Off for exfoliating. I love the honey face mask when my face is feeling rough because the honey really moisturizes my skin and the Brazilian black sugar helps with buffing off that coat of dead skin revealing hydrated and brighter skin. The regular black sugar mask is really great when it comes to removing blackheads but I don’t like to use this if I have active pimples because it irritates them. Both of these are great compliments to my skincare routine and I tend to use these once every 10 days or when I feel is needed.
The Glossier Mega Greens Galaxy Pack face mask is my favorite detoxifying mask because it allows my face to feel super clean without drying it out too badly. I used to use the Aztec Indian Clay Mask but I found it to be too harsh for my skin, leaving it notably red. This Glossier mask was the perfect solution in replacing that because it also draws out my skin’s impurities extremely well without any inflammation. Its super gentle and for that very reason is my most used mask. It has a slight cooling sensation and when I wash it off it leaves my skin notably clearer and tighter.
I love to follow the Glossier Mega Greens mask with Glossier Moisturizing Moon Mask because I like to restore moisture back into my skin after any type of detoxing face mask since my skin is so dry. I could literally use this mask every night, especially now that the winter chill is in full effect. The heater has been drying out my skin so to wake up with plump, hydrated skin I always apply this mask at night. It gives my skin a total re-boost! Sometimes I even like to use this after the shower if I have a some time in the morning.

It brightens my skin incredibly and the cranberry seeds act as a nice mild exfoliate and is non-irritating. Its a total game changer and an absolute holy grail skincare item. I love to use this one when I feel like my skin is discolored, tired, and looking dull because it adds so much glow and radiance to my skin after just one use. I’m a huge Glamglow fan but the only downside is that they are a little pricey. The Glamglow Firming Treatment Mask helps tighten and firm my skin. Its a peel off mask, so after 20 or so minutes you’re left with soft airbrushed looking skin. I love to use this on my forehead where I tend to wrinkle my face the most. I’m not crazy about the scent. It weirdly smells like piña colada, but I deal with it because it really works!
The REN Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask is a new favorite. I’m starting to dive more and more into these non-abrasive, glycolic acid type of exfoliants as opposed to scrubs. I’m really loving them! This one left my skin like it was brand spankin’ new after just one use, revealing soft brighter looking skin. The consistency was slightly strange for me at first but its very effective and my skin looked noticeably nicer.
