The Best Facemasks For Every Skin Type

Whether you’re a fan of a DIY multi-mask or one of the biocellular sheet masks loved by celebs, we’ve hunted down the best on the market, to see which are really worth the hype…

Facemasks used to be seen as a luxury skincare treat – for those who have bags of time to self-indulge. But in recent years, sales have soared; showing masks are now being incorporated into a weekly, skincare step for many of us.

These days, facemasks are loaded with hi-tech ingredients, with everything from hydrating hyaluronic to spot-busting salicylic acid being packed into one ten-minute treatment. Less of a faff than the gloopy, cucumber masks of our teenage years, the right modern mask can be a cost-effective way to rival a salon-worthy facial.

But choosing the right one for you can be hard, so that’s where we come in…
