Editor's Picks: The BEST Face Masks at Mecca Cosmetica This Month
Anyone who’s been lucky enough to experience a quality facial knows they can be mood-altering. (It’s difficult to hold onto irritation when the healing hands of a skilled therapist are methodically sweeping over your face.) If you happen to have skin issues that aren’t easily remedied at home—like irritation or acne—a professional treatment can even be life-changing, granting you a greater level of control over your complexion.
As special and powerful as a professional facial can be, they’re not always the most budget or time-friendly of treatments, which is why we take notice when skincare brands launch at-home versions that claim to offer a similar level of results.
Happily, one of our favourite global beauty destinations, Mecca Cosmetica, stocks a seemingly endless range of effective at-home options from internationally renowned skin experts like Kate Somerville, as well as lesser known (but just as amazing) brands.
We’ve curated the latest and greatest face masks for treating everything from hydration to dullness (or both, if you’re into multi-masking). Result: whether you’re after a luxuriously relaxing experience or speedy sheet mask, you can do it all from the comfort of your sofa. Keep scrolling for our pick of the best masks at Mecca Cosmetica this month!
Skyn Iceland Fresh Start Mask ($57)
If you’re into DIY, you’ll love this mix-it-yourself mask. Smooth a layer of clay onto clean skin, top with the gel, then massage together to create a deep-cleansing foam.
Karuna Anti-Oxidant+ Face Mask ($12)
Made from biodegradable cloth said to help skin retain more moisture than a regular sheet mask, these infuse skin with protective antioxidants in as little as ten minutes.
GlamGlow Thirsty Mud ($86)
Many mud masks can be drying, but not this one. A blend of hydrating hyaluronic acid, comforting oats and nourishing coconut delivers a softer, plumper complexion.
Origins Out Of Trouble ($34)
This zingy mask does double-duty, soaking up shine and calming irritation. Apply weekly to prevent breakouts or dab straight onto spots to send them packing.
NARS Aqua Gel Luminous Mask ($56)
A great pre-makeup treatment, it leaves your face silky and ready for foundation. Bonus: the formula contains light reflecting particles that impart serious radiance.
Korres Pomegranate Mask ($16)
Super-creamy, this pore-purifying treatment is a joy to use. The star ingredient (antioxidant-rich pomegranate) helps improve texture, and smells pretty darn good, too.
Origins Dr Weil Dark Spot Correcting Night Mask ($72)
The leave-on formula makes it easy to work into even the busiest of schedules. Layer on before you snooze, and wake up to a brighter reflection. Easy.
