To take the guesswork out of finding an excellent fit for your face, we are here to help. Editor Trudi Brewer shares seven of her faves - one for every day of the week.
Freeman Holographic Peel Off Mask infused with Rose Quartz, $5.
It's safe to say the Freeman brand are mask experts. This new calming and brightening sheet mask is ideal if you're about to head out on date night. It will be the perfect pick-me-up for any skin type. There is also a new Freeman Melting Sugar Matcha Ice Cream Sugar Mask, on offer too, which is also $5.
Go-To Transformazing, $10.
This is a serum-infused, single serve sheet mask that is infused with natural plant goodness including kakadu plum, and finger lime tasmanian pepper, this combination of ingredients works to hydrate, dull-looking skin - fast.
St. Tropez Self Tan Express Facial Sheet Mask, $16.
This clever invention gives your face a summer glow, ideal if you're heading off for a tropical escape this winter. Packed with a tanning serum infused with skin-plumping hyaluronic acid, it offers a hydrated looking tan, and most importantly streak-free, bronze glow on your face. Leave it on from five minutes to 15 minutes to get a very light natural tan or a golden-looking bronze.
Shiseido Benefiance Pure Retinol Intensive Revitalizing Face Mask, $98.
If your skin is looking dry, with fine lines (like mine) call in the big guns with this concentrated treatment in a sheet mask. Laced with pure retinol (vitamin A derivative), vitamins C and E, hydroxyproline, and hesperidin (extracts found in citrus fruit), this is a brilliant combination for skin in need of an anti-ageing boost. There are four sheet masks in one pack.
Estèe Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery Eye Mask. $92.
Strictly for the eye area, this is the perfect pick-me-up for tired-looking peepers. These delicate sheets sit perfectly under the eyes and are infused with the hydrating and rejuvenating, ‘advanced night repair technology’. This is the eye mask we always travel with to calm and refresh dryness and plump out those ageing fine lines under the eye area . To activate squeeze the serum into the corner of the pack so it soaks on to the eye sheets. Leave on for 10 minutes, and don’t forget to massage in the rest of the serum from the pack into your skin. There are four masks in each pack.
8 + Replenishing Hydration Facial Mask, $30.
This moisture-making mask is made in NZ using the best natural ingredients, including hyaluronic acid, hydrolyzed silk, licorice root, and caviar extracts to name a few. Not only will it hydrate the skin quickly it also softens and soothes a stressed out-looking complexion. It’s genius.
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrogel Mask, $8.
Stacked with the moisture-magnet hyaluronic acid, your skin instantly feels hydrated after using this sheet mask. Leave it on the skin for at least 30 minutes, and then follow up with a luxurious skin serum, and you will be surprised how little makeup you need to perfect your complexion.
