We all love our clay masks, but sometimes you need something a little more soothing -- which is where moisturizing masks come in. They're the perfect way to kick your feet back after a long week -- after all, it really doesn't get much more relaxing (especially since they tend to smell amazing).
While they're all moisturizing, these masks come in various forms and serve varying functions. Some are ultra-rich and creamy, while others are lightweight gels; some are sleeping masks that are meant to be worn all night, and others are meant to be worn for 10 or 15 minutes at a time -- so there's really something for everybody.
The Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask went viral when it was first released -- at one point, it even had a 20,000-person waitlist. It's not hard to see why: First off, it's about as trendy as they come with its sleek, millennial-friendly packaging (not to mention its pale pink hue). Then, there's the fact that it moisturizes and exfoliates with a combo of hyaluronic acid and AHAs -- which means it significantly ups your glow factor. Plus, it can be used as a 10-minute mask or a sleeping mask, so add "versatile" to its list of positive attributes.
From its luxe appearance to its comfy jelly-water texture, the Dior Hydra Life Jelly Sleeping Mask sure brings a lot to the table. Formulated to boost hydration and radiance, this moisturizing mask makes for the perfect midweek pick-me-up: Whether your skin is dry, oily or combination, you'll wake up with a refreshed complexion.
We think it's safe to say that the Pacifica Wake Up Beautiful Mask handily lives up to its name: You really will wake up feeling like a Disney princess in the morning dew. The creamy formula is easy to apply as well -- you just put it on before you go to sleep, no need to rinse. It soaks in quickly, and as with all Pacifica products, it's got a great fragrance.
No one does face masks quite like Origins -- and it turns out their moisturizing mask is every bit as potent as their cult-favorite clay masks, thanks to ingredients like avocado and apricot kernel oil and skin barrier-repairing seaweed. The formula is rich and creamy (almost balmy!), so you don't need much to get a serious glow going.
