Now's the time to prepare your masking menu, ready for a relaxing skincare soiree this weekend with your loved ones. To help you become the hostess with the mostess at your face mask fiesta, we have put together a list of our favourite masks for both men and women, targeting the most common skincare concerns, to make sure that nobody has to miss out!

The best face masks for Oily Skin

If you have oily skin, this Face Mask will purify, detoxify and mattify your skin to leave you with a weekend ready fresh face. With three pure clays combined with charcoal, this detox mask acts like a magnet to draw out impurities. The creamy texture detoxifies the skin's surface by cleansing deep into the pores, leaving the skin looking clarified and beautified without drying it out.  The three pure clays work in harmony for maximum skin detoxifying results:

  • Kaolin, a highly effective natural clay known to absorb impurities and excess sebum.
  • Montmorillonite, rich in minerals, a clay recognised for helping to eliminate imperfections.
