Which Face Mask Suits Your Skin Type?



Nothing says ‘self-care’ like a face mask. Whether you have oily, sensitive or dry skin we’ve found the best face mask for your skin type.

While face masks can vary in price, the introduction of single use masks to the market has been a saving grace to budget beauty queens.

Face masks are a quick and easy way to improve your skin and force you to take some time out.

Choose a face mask that matches your skin type or performs a particular function.

Masks that detoxify

If the skin needs purifying, there are also several cleansing masks that will do the trick.

Bondi Boost Activated Charcoal Mask (RRP$39.95)

Best known for their haircare range, Bondi Boost are no strangers to creating masks that strengthen and rehydrate anything they come into contact with, whether that be hair or skin.

At Bondi Beauty, we can’t go past the fact that the ingredients are all natural, locally sourced within Australia.

The charcoal and kaolin clay work together to soak up excess oils and toxins to control pre-existing acne and prevent further breakouts.

Neutrogena Purifying Boost Mask (RRP $5.99)

This is not just another sheet mask. The sheet itself is made of 100% hydrogel material which is clinically proven to hydrate the skin. The material is enriched with Moringa which is extremely high in antioxidants and acts against free radicals. What’s more, the seed and seaweed extract work to purify the skin, creating a bright and healthy-looking complexion.

Palmer’s Coconut Charcoal Mask (RRP $4.99)

For skin that really needs a deep cleanse, try this coconut charcoal mask.

Natural Charcoal (from Coconut Husk) helps to really clean out the impurities hiding deep in the pores.

Tip: Put this mask on after a nice hot shower to ensure that the pores are already open, allowing the mask to sink even deeper than it would normally.

The Willow Bark acts as a natural exfoliant and works to decongest pores leaving a clear, smooth and luminous complexion.

Masks that Moisturise

These masks are perfect for skin that is feeling particularly dry and lacklustre.

Palmer’s Coconut Water Hydrating Sheet Mask (RRP $4.99)

Not only is the sheet mask application convenient and less messy than a potted mask but the cotton sheet allows the active ingredients to penetrate the skin more deeply.

This means that the serum from the mask can fully absorb rather than just evaporate from the surface, leaving the skin feeling hydrated and dewy.

Filled with ingredients like coconut oil & water, the mask will deliver an intense instant hydration boost, rehydrate depleted skin & lock in moisture.

For an extra kick, they’ve also added Hyaluronic Acid to replenish and revitalise dull looking skin, and Chamomile Extract to soothe redness and irritation.

Loccitane Soothing Face Mask Pod (RRP $8.50)

With its yoghurt like texture, this mask is the secret weapon for dry and irritated skin.

The mask is enriched with freshly picked blackcurrants leaving your skin not only feeling silky smooth but also smelling like a fruit cocktail – yes please.

While the mask may be on the smaller side, it’s packed full of vitamins and minerals such as magnesium and calcium to rehydrate the skin and leave it feeling plump. The packaging is also nicely compact in a round ball, making it the perfect staple for traveling.
