What Do Face Masks Do?

Face masks give your skin a little extra TLC when it needs it. Face masks are also the perfect partner for your dream pamper evening. 

But what face mask benefits can we expect? Depending on their ingredients, they can: 

  • Moisturize and hydrate dry skin 
  • Improve skin’s texture 
  • Balance excess oil 
  • Helps minimize fine lines and wrinkles 
  • Brighten for dull skin 
  • Refine large pores 
  • Unclog blocked pores 

There are many reasons to start including regular facial masking in your skincare routine. But which type of face mask is best for you? 

Best Sheet Mask

If you’re looking for the best face mask for clear skin, meet the Revolution Skincare Biodegradable Clarifying Sheet Mask. What could be a better pairing than a sheet mask and the best-selling ingredient Niacinamide?

This indulgent sheet face mask smooths and evens skin tone, reduces redness, and improves skin moisturization.  

How to Use Sheet Face Mask

Unfold and apply the sheet mask to your face. Leave for 10-15 minutes while watching some Netflix and taking a few selfies. Then, remove the mask and rub the remaining serum into your skin. Allow to absorb for maximum skincare benefits.  

Best Clay Mask

If you’re looking to detoxify your skin and decongest your pores, then a clay mask will be your new best friend.  

The Revolution Pink Clay Detoxifying Face Mask is formulated with Seaweed Extract and Witch Hazel to help moisturize your skin and soothe problematic areas. This clay mask also draws out impurities and absorbs excess oils to encourage a clearer complexion. Hello, healthy skin!  

How to Use Clay Mask

Apply an even layer to clean, dry skin. If you don’t like getting a little messy, you can put your face mask on with the Revolution Double Ended Masking Brush. Allow to work its magic for up to 15 minutes, then rinse off with warm water. This clay mask can be used 1-2 times a week.  

Best Peel Off Mask

A peel-off face mask is one of the most fun skincare products!  

The Revolution Pink Glitter Face-Off Mask lets you shimmer your way to better skin. This glittering peel-off mask gently exfoliates away dead skin and helps to keep your skin hydrated. Plus, it makes for one of the prettiest self-care selfies!  

How to Use Peel Off Mask  

Apply to clean skin, avoiding your eyes, hair, eyebrows, and lips. After 20 minutes or once the mask has dried, gently peel the mask off (it’s the best bit!). Remove any remaining mask with warm water. 

You can use this mask once or twice a week or whenever you feel like a glitzy treat.  

Best Charcoal Mask

One of the best ways to deeply cleanse your skin is to use a Charcoal face mask, thanks to its absorbing properties, making it perfect for those with oily or combination skin.  

The Revolution Skincare Charcoal Purifying Mask showcases this super ingredient. This Charcoal mask purifies your pores and leaves you with a clear complexion. It’s also formulated with Glycolic Acid and Lactic Acid to make skin appear bright and radiant.

How to Use Charcoal Face Mask

Apply an even layer to your skin with your fingers or with the Revolution Double Ended Masking Brush. Allow to work its magic for 10-15 minutes before washing off with warm water.  

P.S remember to always wear sunscreen after using this mask! 

Best Overnight Mask

Overnight masks are perfect for those who like a little less fuss.  

The Revolution Skincare Overnight Sleeping Mask helps to smooth, soothe and even your skin tone as you sleep, so you can wake up with glowing skin. We also love this overnight face mask because it’s infused with relaxing Lavender.  

Not only does it encourage a healthier complexion but it also promotes a deeper sleep (perfect for any insomniacs out there!).  

How to Use an Overnight Face Mask

Apply your overnight face mask at the end of your skincare routine after your serum. Smooth a generous amount onto our face, then go to bed, ready for a more restful sleep and more radiant skin.  

Best Hydrating Mask

Your skin can never get enough hydration. So, feed your face with the Revolution x Jake Jamie Watermelon Hydrating Face Mask. These Instagram-worthy face masks are perfect for pamper evenings and are made with skin-loving ingredients. Formulated with Watermelon Extract, this face mask boosts hydration, leaving skin moisturized and smelling of fresh watermelon!  

How to Use Hydrating Face Mask

Apply your hydrating face mask to clean skin. Allow the super ingredients to work for 10-15 minutes. Then, massage the mask into your skin for a further 30 seconds before rinsing off. You’ll be left with a fruity smell and a fresh face!
