1.Huxley Good Night Sleep MaskThis innovative Korean face mask from cult beauty brand Huxley is an overnight miracle worker that helps to replenish lost hydration and leave the skin looking visibly healthier and more plumped-up. Free from chemical nasties such as parabens, synthetic dyes and mineral oil, it's instead loaded with botanical extracts such as prickly pear seed oil and centella asiatica, alongside vitamins and antioxidants for beautifully radiant skin. It's perfect for using when you need a moisture boost, or just when your complexion looks a little dull and in need of some TLC.
2.Oh K! Gold Gel Lip MaskWho doesn't love a plumped-up pout? Newly launched Oh K! will give you just that with their super luxe Gold Lip Mask; an innovative gel-like treatment which hydrates and locks in essential moisture to keep lips supple and soft. Its deep level nourishment provides long-term hydration, which keeps the lips healthy, plumped-up and ready for lipstick application.
3.Holika Holika Collagen Skin Rescuer Sheet MaskExpect "collagen" to become the new buzz-term in beauty, and thanks to Holika Holika's Collagen Skin Rescuer Sheet Mask, you'll be well ahead of the trend. The ulta-fine sheet mask moulds to your individual face shape to intensely deliver a shot of powerful ingredients into the skin for a visibly plumped-up and glowing effect. The collagen it contains is known as "hydrolysed collagen" which delivers firming and tighening effects; perfect for use against fine lines and the first signs of skin ageing.
4.Seoulista Beauty Charcoal Instant Facial MaskThe Seoulista Beauty Charcoal Instant Facial Mask has been inspired by the flawless complexions of South Korean women, as it helps to detox the skin and deep-cleanse the pores. Infused with mineral-rich charcoal and volcanic ash, the Korean face mask removes impurities and unclogs blocked pores for a completely renewed complexion. Additionally, it is free from chemical nasties such as parabens, mineral oil and sulphates if you prefer to use natural and clean products.
5.Blithe Soothing and Healing Green Tea Patting Splash MaskThis amazingly unique Patting Splash Mask from Blithe is unlike any other Korean face mask we have tried, and that's saying something considering K-Beauty sets the trends for the whole industry. Rich in lactic and salicylic acids, the mask helps to minimise the appearance of pores and blemishes, while green tea and tea tree oil help to calm and soothe any redness. It works by applying a capful of the mask onto the face and then splashing away using the water from a shower. You then follow with your usual skincare steps for a renewed complexion.
6.J.One Black Jelly Pack Multi-Functional Overnight Gel MaskInspired by the famous and now cult J.One Jelly Pack Primer, the Overnight Gel Mask is perfect for replenishing the skin ready for primer and makeup application. Powered by Black Bee propolis and black truffle extract, the overnight Korean face mask helps to replenish lost moisture and lock in essential hydration for a plumped-up and glowing complexion. It also contains red wine extract and black cumin seed, which provide antioxidant protection to shield skin against damaging environmental aggressors.
7.FOREO UFO Smart Mask Treatment DeviceAlthough FOREO are not a Korean skincare brand, their new UFO Smart Mask Treatment Device is inspired by Korean technology and uses sheet masks to deliver intense nutrition into the skin with its blend of thermotherapy and T-Sonic™ pulsations. It works to reduce the appearance of blemishes by killing off acne-causing bacteria and boosting collagen to plump-up the skin and give it a glowing, radiant finish.
8.Holika Holika Honey Sleeping PackSkin loves honey. Its incredible antibacterial and anti-microbial properties make it perfect at reducing the appearance of redness and blemishes, which is why we love Holika Holika's Honey Sleeping Pack. The rich and luxurious treatment melts into the skin to effectively moisturise any dry patches and leave the complexion glowing and feeling hydrated. Its also rich in vitamins, which help to keep the skin healthy and protected against environmental aggressors.
9.Skin79 Egg Veil Face MaskInfused with nutrient-rich egg shell membrane, Skin79's Egg Veil Face Mask is a great addition to your skincare routine if you suffer from dehydration or signs of ageing. Rich in collagen, hyaluronic acid and amino acids, the Korean face mask balances out the complexion, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and intensely moisturises and conditions for a super hydrated finish to the skin.
10.Huxley Keep Calm Healing MaskIf you have particularly dry, irritated or sensitised skin, you will love Huxley's Keep Calm Healing Mask. Infused with orange peel and centella asiatica, the mask helps to pacify stressed-out skin and neutralise the aggressors which cause flare-ups and irritation. Prickly-pear seed oil is loaded with antioxidants, which nourishes the skin and prevents it from becoming dehydrated and exposed to redness, leaving the complexion calmed, soothed and normalised.
