Beauty desk drops: three go-to masks

by Holly O'Neill
08th Apr 2019

Looking for a new mask? These are three of the best to land on the beauty desk this year with the ability to solve all issues – texture irregularities, blemishes, dehydration and more.

Image I Mask Purifying Probiotic Masque, €54, imageskincare.ie

People are always accidentally tagging us in their skincare selfies with Image Skincare, and how I wish we really were the creators. Everything I’ve ever tried from the range has been incredible; the Pure Hyaluronic Filler serum is the only thing I reach for when I want my skin to look dewy before an event and the Vital C Hydrating A C and E serum protects my face every day. Their newest hero, the Image I Mask Purifying Probiotic Masque, €54, sorts out texture irregularities, detoxifies pores and hydrates and balances the skin. Save this one for hungover Sunday’s.

Ole Henriksen Cold Plunge Pore Mask, €36 at Boots

The Wim Hof Method, for your face. Leave this turquoise clay mask on for 15 minutes and let snow lotus, alpine willow herb, neem seed oil and AHAs get to work on oil, blemishes and large pores. Remove with cool water for an cold smack in the face to really wake you up plus soothed, detoxed and refreshed skin. Your go-to to wake up yourself up on morning’s after very little sleep.

L’Occitane Aqua Réotier Mineral Moisture Mask, €35, available in stores and online

Hyaluronic acid, glycerin and calcium-rich water from the Réotier Spring in Provence revitalize the skin and leaves your face looking plumped and dewy. Apply it overnight for the best benefits, but it’s equally lovely when used in a thick layer on the face for ten minutes before make-up application.
