Everyone is losing their minds over this new mask from The Ordinary

When you hear 100% natural, you may think this skin tin wont pack a punch, but you’d be wrong. Thanks to exfoliating BHAs drawn from white willow bark and pomegranate enzymes, this 20-minute mask brings out the glow that lies under dull, congested, or rough skin.

And that’s not all – with nourishing beet extract and soothing aloe vera, skin is left soft and comforted, as well as brilliantly bright.

Jet Lag Mask, £42, Summer Fridays

This blue tube has been all over our Instagram and after gaining the tick of approval from Kim Kardashian-West and Jessica Alba we were so keen to try it ourselves. And woah mama, it’s a super hydrator alright. Instantly cooling on the skin, it soothes in seconds and plumps in a minute. It’s not often you’ll find a skincare product that has instantaneous results, but after 10 minutes we were able to notice an actual difference. We’re talking brighter, firmer, smoother skin. Plus, you don’t have to wash this off if you cbf. It’s an overnight mask, so you can sleep while your skin soaks up the magic. Yes, it’s a bit spenny, but it’s totally worth it.

Better than some facials we’ve had (which would set you back a tad more than £50).
