Face masks have become the foundation of any good skincare routine and the face mask category is one of the fastest growing in skincare, according to new stats from Boots.
Is there anything more self-indulgent than getting home after a cr*p day in the office and slapping a face mask on? We didn’t think so.
Joanna Rogers, Trading Director and VP of beauty gifting at Boots UK, said: “Our customers love face masks and we have seen the popularity continue to rise, selling on average one mask every two seconds!”
If you want to jump on the bandwagon but feel overwhelmed by the amount of choice on offer (we feel ya), the three best-selling face masks at Boots might be a good starting point…
- Garnier’s Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask, £2.99: Formulated with Pomegranate Extract, Hyaluronic Acid and Plant Serum, the Garnier Moisture Bomb Pomegranate Tissue Mask works to instantly rehydrate skin, revive radiance and – with regular use – reduce the appearance of fine lines. The new-generation tissue mask is infused with a nourishing serum that’s kind enough for even the most sensitive skin types. Inspired by Asia, this face mask for dry skin apparently provides the same amount of serum as one week of daily care. The hydrating ingredients pamper and comfort the skin while the mask is in place, providing a moisture boost. The result? Skin appears smoother, softer and more radiant – all in just 15 minutes. We’ll take that.
- Soap Glory’s Under Eye Brightening Mask, £3.50: With PUFFEASE™ technology (a tripeptide that reduces the appearance of puff – handy!) and soothing ingredients including cucumber fruit juice and liquorice root extract, this mask smoothes, revitalises, brightens and moisturises.
- Boots Cucumber Clay Mask, £1.50: The purse-friendly 3 minute cleansing clay mask works to draw out those nasty impurities and unwanted excess oils from your pores, leaving your skin cleansed, toned and soft.
Face masks are packed to the brim with skin-boosting goodness, from Vitamin C to hyaluronic acid and if you’re not sure what the hell it is your skin needs, we’ve rounded up plenty of options here.
