No, no, not those masks, but indulgent, good-for-your-skin facial masks! As we’re all cooped up inside, what better time to soak our faces in moisture or strip our pores of oil?
Olay HYDRATING OVERNIGHT GEL MASK
At the risk of being basic, this mask is a great starting point for any skin type. Hyularonic acid, niacinamide, and vitamin E are all skin power players. Leave on while you sleep and wake up with refreshed, dewy skin.
Olay Brightening Overnight Gel Mask
Brighten dull skin with this potent mix of vitamins C and B3 plus orange blossom flower extract in a cooling gel base. Apply on damp skin to magnify the effects of the hyaluronic acid.
Olay Firming Overnight Gel Mask
Packed with vitamin A, niacinamide, and hyularonic acid, this overnight mask treatment promises to firm and hydrate your skin up to 10 layers deep. The formula is fairly light and won’t weigh down your skin or clog your pores.
NIOD Flavanone Mud
This mud utilizes three types of clay: black Amazonian, copper Brazilian, and sedimentary white. Its unique bio-solubilizing technology degrades both water- and oil-soluble impurities. Bright rust-colored, this mask is certainly pungent (it smells like slightly rancid barbecue sauce) and stains everything orange. So is it worth it? Our beauty editors say yes, but use gloves to apply and be prepared for the smell and the mess.
NIOD Voicemail Masque
While most of NIOD’s products scream science, this one leans a little more New Age spiritual. Maybe we’re just not “hip” with modern skincare, but it’s hard for us to envision what the masque actually does. A combination of plant stem cells and polyphenols is supposed to help cellular communication and thereby provide a youthful glow? This baffling product is pleasant and refreshing, but perhaps not noteworthy.
