As you may have read before here or here, I’m all sorts of obsessed with face masks. It’s the way I spoil myself at home with my own spa day. I can’t help it, there’s very little that makes me feel like I’m re-charged and ready to go than beginning my routine with a face masks. And so, it was only a matter of time before I came across some warming face masks that I’m loving right now (and my roomies are joining me in this love):
SOMME INSTITUTE BOOST MASK , $4O
Somme Institute Boost Mask
Somme maybe better known for their 5-step skin-clearing regimen. The price tag for the whole treatment (about $298) may not be in everyone’s budget. But this Boost mask can be used on it’s own and feels amazing. It contains zeolite a natural mineral that warms the skin and opens the pores. Kaolin, a natural clay, then absorbs oil and impurities. Plus it contains a chock full of vitamins (E, B) to nourish, and pumpkin enzymes to exfoliate. It’s gentle enough for all skin types and even most conditions (sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, acen, rosacea) to improve skin tone and clarity. All while feeling you’re being swept away at a spa.

Boscia Clarifying Detox Mask, $25
I almost totally forgot to tell you about my other favorite face mask, this time from Japanese brand Boscia. Their clay Clarifying Detox Mask ($25) actually tops my list, and I don’t anticipate EVER giving it up. It’s infused with botanicals like rosemary and peppermint, and has been good to me since my college days. I still use it! It’s my staple deep-cleansing mask for any big event, and I always feel my skin looks refreshed and cleaner afterwards.
The best part is, unlike most masks, you only have to keep it on for five minutes – talk about time saver! Also contains antioxidants jojoba and green tea, and you know I’m all about the anti-aging stuff.
100% Pure Pineapple Enzyme Facial Peel Mask, $17
After a shower, nothing feels more luxurious than using one. And since I’m a guinea pig of sorts, I have a couple favorites that I’ve used for years. I’ve tried many in between, but still think these come out on top. I’ll share one of them for now and save the other for later!
