Shop our round-up of nourishing and brightening face masks.

There’s nothing like a proper night of pampering – drawing a steamy, bubble bath, lighting luxurious candles and treating your skin to some much-needed indulgence.

Whether you tuck into a good book in the bath or settle on the sofa with Netflix and a face mask, the idea is two refresh and recharge for the week ahead.

So, if you’re stocking up for your next self-care day, be sure to check out our round-up of hydrating and brightening face masks.

From hydrating sheet masks to cleansing clays, each one is infused with nutritious ingredients, helping to purify, moisturise and illuminate skin, leaving you with a fresh summer glow.

Sheet masks

The secret behind most glowing skincare, vitamin C is a hero antioxidant. It works to brighten and even skin tone, while also helping to protect skin and combatting free radicals. It is most effective when it is stored in a powdered form, which is why this Oh K! sheet mask stores it in a handy split sachet – just mix the powder with the mask and leave on for up to 15 minutes.

If you love to feel skincare at work, the ever popular Oh K! Bubble Sheet Mask is an absolute dream. Made with cinnamon and willow bark extract, it reacts with the oxygen in the air to form tiny bubbles on your skin, gently exfoliating and purifying for a smooth finish.

Clay masks

If you have oily skin or suffer from breakouts, clay masks are a great way to help unclog pores and remove build up. The Face Facts duo bundle comes with a deeply cleansing seaweed mask to help cleanse the skin and a restorative clay mask that uses chamomile to soothe inflammation, leaving a healthy glow.

Made with Australian Red Clay, this Body Drench mask delivers rich nutrients to the skin. Its clay texture helps removes dead skin cells, smoothening skin and brightening dark and dull areas of the complexion.

Cream masks

Both intensely hydrating and anti-ageing, this Declaré Ocean’s Best Mask is a great way to boost moisture when your skin is feeling dry, tired or sun-stressed. After a long day outdoors, apply the cool and refreshing mask and it will help plump skin, leaving it fresh and soft. It can be rinsed after ten minutes or left on for added moisture.

A cult classic, this Beauty Jar Face Mask is made with hydrating aloe juice and white tea extract – an ingredient rich in B vitamins, amino acids and tea caffeine, which helps to even skin tone and illuminate the skin with a gorgeous glow.
