Resurfacing Mask, £54, Tata Harper
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.
Rose Gold Brightening Facial Treatment Mask, £85 (for 5 pack), 111SKIN

Margot’s favourite is the Bio Cellulose Facial Treatment Mask, whereas Priyanka used the Rose Gold Brightening Facial Treatment Mask to prep her skin for her wedding day.

Pumpkin Enzyme Mask, £55.50, Peter Thomas Roth
We love a product you can feel working, like this mask. Don’t be scared when it gets a bit tingly, that’s the enzymes nibbling at the dead skin cells. A tiny bit goes a long way too (we got two used just from the lid) so it’s worth the investment.

Transformer Instant Renewal Mask, £95, Zelens
3D Moisture Infusion masks, £43 for 4, Skinesis by Sarah Chapman
Aside from the face this mask promises to reduce redness and plump skin, we’re more interested in the fact it’s created by Meghan Markle’s facialist. Use it to refresh skin, and possibly bag a Prince.
Detoxifying Clay Mask, £45, DCL
Younger Revealing Mask Intense, £210, Lancer
Containing four doses (so, at £50 a pop, it’s a pricey one), this iron-based mask mask is removed by hovering a magnet over your face. For real. Aside from being incredibly satisfying to use, it’s also super effective. The magnet draws the iron away, taking dirt and grime with it. Better than some facials we’ve had (which would set you back a tad more than £50).
