I love facemasks. Check my instagram, and you’re likely to see tons of posts about different masks I’ve been trying out. (Alternately, look at my desk or in my fridge where I typically have between 10 to 20 masks at a time.) If a store has a sale on facemasks, you can find me there stocking up. But there are a few masks which I find myself purchasing over and over again. These are my go to masks for when my skin is feeling tired and worn out. I’m going to rank my top 4 masks here.
#4: Medi-Heal Pore Tightening Solution
This is a mask I tend to use after I’ve done any kind of peel off mask or deep exfoliation. It leaves my skin feeling soft and moisturized as well. I personally feel that my pores do look a bit smaller after using them. It doesn’t have a strong smell, and it doesn’t cause any problems for my super sensitive skin, like some other pore masks have. Medi-Heal brand can be found at LOHB and is a decent price, between 1,500w to 3,000w depending on the mask. You can also catch them on sale sometimes, so stock up when you can!
#3:SkinFood: Propolis and Bee Venom mask
This mask is for moisturizing and firming, and while it’s one of my favorites, there is a small disclaimer. As this product uses bee venom, if you are highly allergic to bees, you should steer clear. I have a slight bee allergy, so this mask is one I only use at night time, as my face tends to be red afterwards. You might wonder “Ren, why is a mask you are allergic to one of your favorites?” That’s because it makes my skin feel crazy smooth, and so I can deal with the slight tingling feeling that I get from it. But again, totally not for everyone. It has a light honey like scent.
It’s from SkinFood, which is one of my favorite brands and is also around 1,500w.
#2 TonyMoly Naturalith Goat Milk Moisture Mask Sheet
This is one of the masks that I have never actually had to buy, but I totally would. TonyMoly has been pushing their Goat Milk line a lot for the past year or so, and as such many times you get this mask for free. It’s great for days when your skin feels super dry, and I like to keep these in the fridge so it’s cool when I put it on. I will say that it does take a little longer to absorb after taking the mask off, so make sure to pat the essence into you skin well. I’m going to assume this mask is roughly 2,000w, because I’ve never actually paid for it since I’m a TonyMoly VIP member. I definitely suggest this one if you have dry skin.
#1 TonyMoly I’m Real Red Wine Pore Care Mask
This mask has been my favorite mask for around 2 years running now. It has a really nice fruity wine scent. I find that this one is not only great for pore care but also for moisture, so it’s fantastic. The morning after using this, my skin feels like I could even skip my moisturizer. This is one of the masks that I would 100% recommend as a morning mask because of how nice it makes my skin feel. It’s also one of the ones I prefer to keep in my fridge before wearing it and it’s a huge part of my summer skin care routine. Also perfect for sensitive skin.
It’s around 2,000w, which is a bit more than I tend to want to spend, but it’s so worth it.
And there you have it! My top four masks. I’m going to post a ton of other mask reviews in the future, but at the moment these are my essential sheet masks. A lot of these you can buy in bulk for cheaper, and if you keep them in the fridge, they last a lot longer! I hope you love them just as much as I do!
