If your skin is hitting snooze on radiance, this gel mask will quickly revitalize and invigorate your complexion. The zingy combination of antioxidant-loaded green tea, purifying soybean extract, and nourishing niacinamide—plus a lightweight formula—feels like a fresh green juice for your face. Adding to the feel-good factor, this mask comes in an eco-friendly, recyclable sugarcane tube.
Adios, clogged pores! This powerful mask works tirelessly to help banish excess oils and minimize those pesky pores thanks to the triple threat of bentonite, kaolin, and charcoal powder. But that's not all—the secret ingredient, pomegranate extract, swoops in to help soothe and replenish your skin (plus stimulate collagen production), giving it a fresh, youthful glow.
Loved by celebs and beauty editors alike, this exfoliating mask uses a blend of glycolic, lactic, citric, and tartaric acids to help smooth skin texture, minimize the look of fine lines and pores, and fade dark spots. In as little as 10 minutes, say hello to glowing skin!
IPSY member ghargis323 agrees: “I really love the way this makes my skin feel! It is easy to apply and I feel the effects right away.”
These sheet masks are infused with antioxidant-rich ingredients (including a ferment filtrate trio that aids in cell renewal, skin-fortifying ceramides, and brightening niacinamide) to help nourish and protect skin from free-radical damage. Plus, these masks contain revitalizing sodium hyaluronate to help give you glass-like skin.
Is your skin in need of a vitamin cocktail? Then this mask is for you. Rich, luscious electric kaolin is infused with vegan collagen, vitamin C, and lychee extract to help brighten, tone, and lift your skin while helping to restore its natural bounce. Injected with hyaluronic acid, Fijifuji is all about that youthful, radiant glow. It feels like a Fiji-chic party in the tropics, and we’re all about it.
“Love the smell and colour of this mask! Super fun!” says IPSY member reginasarweh.
Got stubborn blackheads? We know the struggle. Luckily, this mask is like a detox for your skin! It helps get rid of blackheads super fast and peels off easily—just steer clear of your eyebrows and hairline. Activated charcoal (the main ingredient) helps banish toxins and impurities deep in your pores. We used it and felt so squeaky clean—no scrubbing needed. It takes 15 minutes to work, which gives you plenty of time to post #maskselfies.
This multitasking mask is like giving your skin a big gulp of cold-pressed juice. Powerful AHAs, BHAs, and fruit enzymes help to exfoliate and resurface your skin to improve texture and clarity, while red seaweed and aloe leaf juice help bring bounciness and radiance back to your complexion. Apply to cleansed skin, leave it on for three or more minutes (gentle tingling is normal), then rinse with warm water. You can use this up to three times per week.
We couldn’t agree more with IPSY member daisylsmith0516: “This mask does not play around, I love that you don’t have to let it sit on your face for a long time. Put it on, have a lil dance party and wait for it to dry. Then boom, face snatched. I love this face mask. It keeps my complexion very clear and smooth.”
Raise your hand if you love a little rosé. This one—in the form of a sheet mask—is suitable for all ages and skin types. It’s infused with hyaluronic acid, resveratrol, and strawberry extract to help protect and calm your skin from inflammation and free radicals, and it also helps reduce hyperpigmentation and fine lines. Pro tip: This mask is best served chilled (just pop it in the fridge 30 minutes before using) for gorgeously glowing results.
IPSY member adamsgrace even served these up for some friends: “Made for a fun evening with friends, kind of wish I had saved them for myself!”
We can’t get enough of the hero ingredient in this face mask: luxurious pink clay. This mineral-rich mud of the gods is meticulously extracted and formulated into a creamy, rich base for the ultimate hydrating, healing, and revitalizing experience in just 10 minutes. Claydate is infused with rosehip oil, aloe, coconut oil, and hyaluronic acid to purify, heal, tone, and remineralize your skin.
It’s like superfood for your face! This pre- and probiotic-rich mask is full of Greek yogurt, anti-inflammatory calendula, and moisturizing sweet almond oil to help hydrate, balance, and soothe sensitive skin in as little as 10 minutes. Fun fact: KORRES harvests plants and flowers that have grown in the wilds of Greece for thousands of years to create efficacious and good-for-you skincare. We can’t wait to incorporate this into our weekly skincare routines.
IPSY member lvrtjak can vouch for it: “This stuff works. I am super-dry and this stuff actually makes my skin feel dewy”
After a stressful day or week, you and your skin deserve a little treat. Give yourself a moment of relaxation with this honey-, vitamin E-, and wild berry-enriched mask that helps restore elasticity, hydrate, and boost skin’s protective barrier (which is perfect for dry skin!). Did you know? HEY HONEY’s products are infused with honey and propolis, one of the most potent antiseptic and antibacterial ingredients on the planet (and a fave of Queen Cleopatra).
Dryness doesn’t stand a chance against this miracle overnight mask. Made with amino acid-rich watermelon extract, hydrating hyaluronic acid, and AHAs to gently exfoliate, there’s not much this mask doesn’t do. Clear, smooth, plump skin will be yours in no time. “It smells exactly like watermelon!” says IPSY member OKbulldogs. “It’s not sticky once it’s on your face and has a second to work its magic!”
This set has not one but two superfood-infused masks you’ll love. The Red Fruits Brightening Mask is made with apple extract to brighten up and even out dull skin tone, and the Broccoli Plumping Mask is packed with vitamin C, beta carotene, and broccoli extract to hydrate.
IPSY member Ms_Sha says: “Huangjisoo has some wonderfully natural skincare products. I absolutely love these sheet masks. They feel nice on and make for some wonderful me time, then leave your skin feeling moisturized and nourished. They're also cruelty-free, which means just as much!”
It’s made with pink Australian clay (we’re obsessed with the color) that draws out toxins from your skin, absorbs dirt and oils, and fights damage caused by pollution. Plus, it’s packed with nourishing ingredients, like aloe vera and mangosteen, that help tighten pores and brighten your complexion. IPSY member MsValerieD is a big fan: “One of my all time favorite face masks that I have ever gotten in my Glam Bag. My skin looks so bright and feels so good and healthy after I use this.”
