Ultimately, beauty products are about results. Of course, we're more inclined to use a complexion-perfecting product if it's fun to use. We will grit our teeth and use uncomfortable and sometimes downright painful things in the name of clearer, brighter, dewier skin, but the winning products are ones where we love the full treatment as much as the results. A peel-off mask is the perfect example of a product that is addictive to use and makes a difference.
If you think peeling off a nose pore strip is satisfying, just wait until you've peeled a mask off your full face. Peel-off masks often have a rubber texture, which is why they're sometimes nicknamed rubber masks. This squidgy texture makes them easy to apply and as entertaining as any jelly mask or bubbling one. When the peel-off formula dries, it magically hardens into a thick sheet that can be removed in one piece. Then you're free to inspect it for any bits of dead skin and dislodged dirt and oil, if you feel so inclined.
If you're looking for peel-off masks that define #oddlysatisfying and make pores appear smaller, these 11 peel-off masks deliver. As tempting as it may be to use them every night, note that the majority are best used a couple of times a week.
This energizing peel-off mask has coffee beans, a fruit acid complex and ginseng to brighten, minimize the appearance of pores and remove dry, flaky skin. It dries in 10 minutes, so try it in the morning when fatigued skin could use a pick-me-up after a late night.
You'll be hard-pressed to find a cuter mask than this one. Unscrew the tentacles/cap of the adorable creature and squeeze out enough inky product to cover your face in a thin layer. The mask is formulated with charcoal extract, Rotorua mud and marine plant extracts to remove built up dirt, oil and impurities. After 10 to 15 minutes, peel off the mask starting at the bottom of your face and see how good the "suction" formula is at clearing pores.
One of the many Instagrammable masks, this one wins for its cheeky name, pretty packaging and glitter-packed formula containing real gold. It dries in approximately 30 minutes, which offers plenty of time for selfies. As it hardens, the formula works to smooth and boost skin's luminosity courtesy of apple fruit extract and different oils.
Get a dose of skin care superfoods and enjoy playing around with this rubber mask. Simply mix the powder and gel together with the spatula to blend it into a spreadable paste. As the mask dries, centella extract soothes, while hyaluronic acid hydrates. The mask is dry when it turns to solid rubber after around 20 to 25 minutes.
