Luxe or Less – Face Masks

Luxe Or Less: Face Masks

You can’t beat a face mask for a quick pick-me-up. The SheSaid team have tested a range of face masks, from supermarket cheap to payday pricey, so which did we rate the best?

Apivita Express Masks
The SheSaid team was unanimous: we all loved Apivita’s Express Masks, especially the Firming and Regenerating Mask with Royal Jelly, $12.90, and the Gentle Cleansing Mask with Pink Clay, $7.90. The Royal Jelly mask was super nourishing while Pink Clay drew out impurities to leave our skin clean and refreshed. What’s great is that you can purchase sachets to try out different blends to find the right one for you. Plus until the end of April Apivita are giving away a free Express Mask with your first order!

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Purifying Mask

We’ve raved about Palmer’s new facial range and this Purifying Mask, $9.95, is our favourite bargain buy. After cleansing, smooth on the mask and let ingredients like natural green clay clean out clogged pores, Evening Promise Oil will calm the skin while Chamomile extract cools and refreshes.

SK-II Masks
After we saw Cate Blanchett at The Oscars, we knew we had to finally try SK-II, the Japanese skincare brand she’s been using for years. Her skin is always so clear and radiant, and we thought what better way then trying their range of face masks. The Whitening Source Derm-Revival Mask, $140 for 10 masks, doesn’t so much as lighten the skin as I feared, but it fades sun spots and evens out skin tone while leaving it velvety soft. It comes as a lotion soaked in to a facial mask that you leave on the skin, which helps deliver ingredients much better than just slapping it on. A luxurious treat – think Mother’s Day or your bestie’s birthday.

What’s your favourite face mask?
