6 Face Masks That Deliver Spa-Worthy Results At Home (From $18)
Routinely dropping $100 or more at the spa on a facial is fine if you’re rolling in it, but even then, it’s nice to treat yourself at home every once in a while.
The reality is that you can achieve great results – and gift yourself a legit pamper moment – with face masks formulated for at-home use. Even better, these products usually give you multiple uses, so even if it looks a little spendy upfront it’s often actually way less expensive than going in-office. Below we’re shouting out six amazing pro-level options worthy of your regimen.
A trifecta of lactic, glycolic, and salicylic acids joins up with pineapple and papaya enzymes in this powerhouse of a mask. What’s crazier: it’ll deliver results in as little as a few minutes and it won’t cost you more than $20. Once applied to clean skin, it addresses hyperpigmentation, nixes dead skin cells, boosts brightness, and leaves skin smooth, soft, and glowy.
If you’re even semi-interested in the beauty or skincare space – which you probably are if you’re here – we’d wager real money that you’ve already seen or heard of Hanacure. To jog your memory, it’s the cult-y K-Beauty mask that makes your skin look strange and wrinkly when applied and dried, but once rinsed away reveals glorious skin. The winner of multiple beauty awards, it utilizes the brand’s proprietary Octolift to firm, tone, tighten, and smooth skin. Make sure to send us selfies if you do this one!
Ulta-fresh off the manufacturing line, BeautyBio Glass & Gloss Megawatt Glow Pro Facial packs a double whammy into one sleek product. We’ve yet to see another duo-type package quite like this. One side (glass) contains a silky-smooth blend of biodegradable nano-dermabrasion crystals that gently buff away dead skin cells. The other side (gloss), is meant to be used afterward, and is formulated with micro-algae peptides and the brand’s Memory Gel Technology to blur imperfections, hydrate, and deliver max glow.
