Less time waiting, more time glowing. As much as I love sprawling out on my bed at the end of a long day with a cup of tea in hand and a thick layer of my mask of choice on my face, there's just not always time for it. For when your complexion needs a kick start, but you just can't find 20 minutes - here are my favorite masks that work in 5 minutes or less.
  1. Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask - Yes, this is the one that smells like a pumpkin latte. As soon as it's slathers on your mug (pun intended) you feel it start to get to work. It contains both chemical and physical exfoliators that tingle and gently scrub off all dead skin to reveale a smoother, poreless complexion. In fact, I wouldn't leave it on for more than 5 minutes as it's quite a potent formula - you'll feel what I mean when you try it for yourself.
  2. Sisley Radiant Glow Express Mask - A luxe option for a quick treat yourself moment. It only asks you relax for 3-5 minutes while it banishes signs of a dull, fatigued complexion. Red Clay, Carrot, and Rosehip extracts deeply cleanse, while Rosemary and Chamomile lift away impurities. It is also a red clay-based mask, but isn't the least bit drying - instead it's soothing and brings a lackluster complexion a dose of restorative energy and the glow to show for it. Almost like a cup of tea for your face...
  3. Malin + Goetz Detox Face Mask - This is the foaming mask that makes you look like Santa while you're wearing it. It is a nice takeoff from the typical masks that sometimes feel so heavy and medica - this one is fun and fizzy. It's super gentle and can be used as often as you like, as it's more like a revved up cleanser than harsh treatment. After using this my skin always feels plumped and hydrated, which is a perfect way to start the day or end it.
  4. Nude Miracle Exfoliating Mask - If you're a fan of the Nude cleanser, allow me to introduce you to its mask counterpart. The texture is almost like an oil meets gel, and it contains mirco-exfoliating particles that feel like they are really getting into crevices and obliterating dead skin in their path. The mask tightens when dry and almost gives a little lift to the skin when removed. I'm a fan, and it's clear so you don't look crazy when wearing it either.
