Peel-off masks are the lazy girls best friend

Peel-off masks offer us two things: better skin and less mess. That is why they're perfect for when you're feeling lazy.

Peel-off masks aren't a new thing per se, but we feel like they've been given a new lease of life recently. Actually, face masks, in general, seem to be having a moment again thanks to new innovations in technology. From sheet masks to good old fashioned clay, the skin pick-me-up is definitely back in a big way.

The great thing about face masks is that they're like a helping hand for your normal skincare routine. During winter, you might opt for hydrating formulas, whereas in spring it might be clarifying. There's freedom to target your skin however it needs. Peel-off masks are ideal for times when your skin needs help... but you're feeling a little lazy. There's no need to wash them off, but you still get the results you want. Win, win then eh?

Get peelin'

Recently I've been testing out the Shiseido Waso Purifying Peel Off Mask and have become a little addicted to it. It's designed as an "emergency re-setting" mask for skin, purifying and brightening. The results are visible from the first application which is great, but to be honest it's just really fun peeling it off. The bright red formula does frighten my boyfriend (and cat too for the matter) but the results are worth it.

So satisfying

Another way to use peel off masks is as a skin-prep aid before makeup. Because you don't have to wash your face afterwards, it's a clever way to save time but still squeeze in a little skin treatment before heading out.


Are you a fan off peel off masks too? Or do you like to relax and unwind with traditional masks?
