Face masks are the fastest growing product in facial skincare, with sales up 48% this year according to Kantar Worldpanel. Whatever your skin type (normal, dry, oily and combination) face masks are an easy and convenient skincare product that can be incorporated into your regular routine to help get your skin back on track. But with so many face masks on the market you want to find the best face mask that works for you. Forever explains the differences below.
MARINE MASK – THE PREMIXED MASK
If you want to say goodbye to drab, dull and dry skin then treat your pores to a deep clean with the Forever Marine Mask. Not only is it easy-to-apply but it also contains moisturising and conditioning properties of aloe vera, honey, cucumber and natural sea minerals. By using this ready-mixed face mask twice a week, you will deeply penetrate the skin and leave it feeling refreshed and revitalised. Simply spread the mask generously in an upward and outward motion over the entire face, avoiding the eyes. Leave to dry for 15-20 minutes, then remove with warm water and a soft cloth.
MASK POWDER – THE ‘MIX IT YOURSELF’ MASK
This ultra-fine skin powder contains a unique combination of ingredients including camomile to smooth, condition and cleanse the skin. The face mask is designed to blend perfectly with our Aloe Activator to create a thin mask for easy application to the face and neck. When blended together it should have the consistency of a lotion. After you apply the face mask, you'll feel it tightening and solidifying as it cleanses your pores, and once removed, skin will feel refreshed and conditioned. Remove after 30 minutes by soaking a flannel in warm water and placing it on your face to soften the mask. Once soft, gently remove the residue with warm water. Finish your skincare regime with your favourite toner and moisturiser.
SONYA REFINING GEL MASK – THE OVERNIGHT MASK
Want to achieve a fresh-faced look while you sleep? Say hello to the Sonya Refining Gel Mask from Forever! This mask helps promote healthy skin tone by nourishing your skin while you sleep, without leaving skin greasy. Simply apply a generous amount over your entire face before bedtime and leave on overnight. Rinse thoroughly with warm water in the morning to reveal a balanced complexion.
This face mask helps to support balance by controlling oil and brightening the appearance of skin. To make the most of your shut eye, we infused this gel with a bounty of botanicals, including carrot seed oil, basil oil, artemisia pallens flower oil and soybean oil. The cool gel of the face mask will absorb quickly into your skin so that you benefit from the moisturising properties of our rich, stabilised aloe vera gel, as well as moisturisers like apple fruit extract, clover flower extract, sasa quelpaertensis (Korean bamboo) extract, and liquorice root, a vitamin-rich plant which provides antioxidant support.
ALOE BIO-CELLULOSE MASK – THE SHEET MASK
What better way to increase skin hydration than with an aloe-infused face mask that literally seeps aloe vera directly into your pores? Unlike traditional masks, Forever's Aloe Bio-Cellulose Mask fuses aloe and seagrass between bio-cellulose fibres to ensure deep moisturisation that penetrates every fine line and wrinkle, soothing and conditioning skin. This environmentally-friendly sheet mask has also been enriched by a moisturising serum of green tea and horse chestnut that rejuvenates dull skin by combatting the signs of ageing and reducing the appearance of redness. This mask is easy-to-apply and the fibres fuse to the contours of your face. Simply pop the face-shaped sheet mask to your face, leave it on for twenty minutes then dispose it in the garden to add nutrients to the soil. There’s no need to rinse your skin after removal, simply rub remaining residue into your complexion to unveil soft, supple and radiant skin.
