The best facemasks to try tonight
Battling with our teenage complexions years ago, we remember the days of slathering our faces with a thick green mud that promised to leave skin glowing after just one use. The outcome was often the opposite – an angry red rash and sore, raw pores. And don’t get us started on those skin-tearing blackhead strips that stuck to our noses like superglue!
Thankfully, the skincare world has evolved since then, and while you can still find similar products on the market, we advise steering well clear. Instead, take a look below where we list the most innovative and industry-loved facemasks that deliver real results without harming your pores.

If months of humid summer temperatures have given you spotty skin reach for Avène’s Cleanance Mask ASAP. This weekly treatment helps to regulate sebum production (the oil glands that can lead to clogged pores) and smooth skin through a proven formula of gentle and effective exfoliating acids, including glycolic, lactic and salicylic, while the bonus of soft Kaolin clay works to absorb excess oil.
Suitable for even sensitive skin types, the mask can be applied to the dry or damp skin and rubbed gently all over your face before rinsing after five minutes.
A sheet mask like no other, this smart skin treat comes in two parts: an ultra-hydrating serum (inside a little ampoule) and a blue rubber mask to then place over your face, which further helps the active ingredients to penetrate your skin deeply – just make sure to warn any guests before opening the door.
Dr.Jart+ offers a variety of masks for different skin woes, but this moisturising formula is saving our post-summer parched pores thanks to the blend of botanical proteins, Vitamin C and rich minerals.
