Stylist's top foil face masks


Be your own facialist with eight of the best foil face masks around

Satin Revitalizing Firming Mask

A silky sheath infused with rose satine nectar, extracted from a resilient rose that thrives in harsh conditions, boosting the skin’s powers of resistance to pollution, stress and sun. My skin looked well-rested, like it had been on holiday without me.

£105 (for six masks), Dior Prestige

Skinesis Instant Miracle Mask

The perfect remedy to give lacklustre skin a boost, this professional-strength mask is packed with plumping hyaluronic acid and brightening vitamin C. The fun is in the mix – add water to create a rubberised texture, paint it on and peel it off to reveal clearer, brighter skin.

£38 (for four masks), Sarah Chapman

Brightening Facial Moisture Boosting Mask

You may find yourself dozing off as this finely blended formula of calming lavender and nourishing shea works on the senses as well as the skin. Quenching rosehip oil also restores collagen levels leaving skin looking tighter. A facial in a packet.

£2.05, The Sanctuary

No ‘Zit’ Sherlock Breakoutbusting Rubberizing Mask

Antibacterial tea tree, seaweed and menthol purge pores and absorb any impurities.

£35 (for six masks), Bliss

Total Effects 7-in-1 Anti-ageing Mask

Cloths are drenched in hydrating vitamins that penetrate the skin and plump out fine lines. Provides a month’s worth of anti-ageing ingredients in under 15 minutes.

£16.99 (for five masks), Olay

The Hydrating Facial

Two cotton masks, one for the upper face and one for the lower, perfectly mould to your face. Active ingredients sink deep into the skin delivering a surge of moisture, zapping redness and dry patches

£190 (for six masks), Crème de la Mer

Le Soin Noir Masque Dentelle

The lace weave of this unique face mask clings to the contours of your face, exerting a gentle lifting tension and giving skin a pearlescent sheen.

£220 (for four masks), Givenchy

Silky Bronze Soothing After Sun Mask

Japanese women are known for their immaculate skincare regimes so we look to Sensai when we feel like a complete skin overhaul. This three-layer paper mask instantly hydrates and refreshes pores. Collagen boosters quickly restore suppleness while apricot and peach extracts enhance and prolong a tan, minimising any peeling. One to pack in your suitcase.

£75 (for eight masks), Sensai by Kanebo
