Mask Force: Our Edit of the Most Effective Quick-Fix Treatments

Face Masks That Actually Work

Whatever your complexion crisis, our edit of hydrating, purifying and refining masks will reveal flawless, luminous skin.

Best for smoothing wrinkles, Sunday Riley {Good Genes Serum & Mask}

A cult hero and definitive multi-tasker, this age-reversing elixir stars resurfacing lactic acid, luminising liquorice and circulatory-boosting lemongrass to instantly refine skin’s texture and diminish visibility of fine lines. Your complexion will appear years younger overnight!

Best for dullness, Peter Thomas Roth {Pumpkin Enzyme Mask}

In the words of one Cult Beauty customer… “What a mask. Super active, pretty zingy and with a very distinctive smell, it’s not for the overly sensitive – but if it suits your skin, it’s marvellous. A dream come true for my oily, zit-ridden complexion, this is pretty intense for the first few uses, but cleanses and exfoliates blackheads into oblivion without leaving skin feeling stripped. I use it once a week and the pot will last forever!”

Best for plumping, Sonya Dakar {Nano Mask}

Harnessing the regenerative properties of apple stem cells, this uses nano technology to maximise the penetrative properties of its potent, anti-ageing actives. Delivering reparative and protective ingredients to skin’s lowest layers, this dramatically enhances moisture levels while kick-starting repair, so your skin is left plumped and dewy with increased resilience.

Best for blemish busting, GLAMGLOW {SUPERMUD Clearing Treatment}

Like a vacuum for your visage, this detoxifying treatment contains purifying kaolin clay alongside blemish-battling eucalyptus to purge pores of impurities and quickly quell a complexion rebellion. Bid ‘bye bye’ to blackheads…

Best for intensive hydration, Tata Harper {Moisturising Mask}

A must-have for winter-ravaged skin, this infuses cells with bio-compatible hyaluronic acid – which attracts and retains ups to 1000 times its molecular weight in water – to provide deep, sustained moisturisation. A perfect quick-fix pick-me-up, you can also leave on overnight to replenish your cells’ moisture reservoirs.

(Pssssssst! Buy Tata Harper’s {Oil Cleanser & Moisturising Mask Duo} and save 25%!)

Best for sensitive skin, MV Organic Skincare’s {Signature Mineral Mask}

Pure, mineral-rich refined white clay, this mask does for your complexion what a holiday does for wellbeing – soothing stresses, relieving irritation and restoring that sought-after, well-rested radiance. Use once or twice a week for instant skin rejuvenation without offending your skin’s sensibilities.
