Four to try: Face masks

Face masks to try out

If there's one thing you should definitely take time to add into your routine it's sure as hell a face mask or two. I find them so effective on my skin, and it's also a good excuse to have some me time and just kick back for 10-15 minutes or so. My skin teeters between dry, dull and blemish ridden (pretty I know, what a catch!), so I've got a handful of fail-safes that are always on hand to sort things up.

First up and new in is the Nip+Fab Glycolic Instant Fix Mask (£12.95). It doesn't break the bank and my skin adores AHAs so I think I'm onto a winner here. This is great when my skin is feeling a bit blah and bumpy. The glycolic acid clears pores and exfoliates the skin, leaving it super smooth and much brighter. It's also really good for healing and preventing acne and disguising my ever increasing fine lines. I find this gives quite similar results to the REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask, except its much cheaper, doesn't resemble jam and I can just about pronounce it.

Do you ever get those grey, dull skin days when you literally look like the walking dead? Well I certainly do and it's normally because I haven't had enough sleep and always have a very busy day ahead of me (typical). I've spoken about this a lot recently but the REN Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial (£32) is the lazy girl's morning fixer-upper (i.e. me). It's really gentle but is so good for faking sleep. I wrote about disguising late nights recently but would highly recommend trying this one out if you need a bit more life injected into your skin but don't have much time to spare.

I'm onto my third tube of the NUDE Miracle Mask Exfoliating Mask (£38) now and it's one that I have to have in my bathroom at all times. Again it contains glycolic acid (I'm obsessed I tell thee!), as well as hyaluronic acid to moisturise the skin. I tend to use this instead of a manual exfoliator when my skin is playing up and is angry and bumpy as its so gentle and doesn't aggravate things. Left on for five minutes it gets to work and leaves my skin so smooth and soft and ready to follow with something a little more nourishing.

This bring me nicely onto the Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask (£21.99). This has to be my most gushed about, most repurchased skincare product of all time and for a damn good reason. It's essentially a cleansing/hydrating mask that's perfect for my skin. It helps heal blemishes without breaking you out further and calms the skin with the anti-bacterial qualities of manuka honey. It's super dreamy to apply and adds loads of moisture to my skin. Seriously, if you haven't tried this yet you really must. I'm about half way through this tube and will be stocking up (again) very shortly as I cannot run out of this. I use it twice a week without fail. It's love and I ain't ashamed!

Have you used any of these face masks or do you have some others that I should try out?
