We've taken the liberty of compiling the best hydrating masks on the market right now, and we've split them by mask type just for you.
Sand & Sky Australian Emu Apple Super Bounce Mask
You’ve probably heard of Sand and Sky through their Australian Pink Clay mask, a miracle-cure social-media fave of beauty influencers. However, we present to you the Australian Emu Apple Super Bounce mask, a hydrating, brightening and antioxidant-rich treat for your skin. The mask contains Vitamin C-rich Kakadu Plum and a blend of five types of hyaluronic acid, making it perfect for all types of skin. Find it here.
Farmacy Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask
This mask is a real experience, with the gentle sweet scent being complemented by a sensational application. The formula warms with application, thickening to a rich creamy texture that leaves you with glowy, hydrated skin in little more than 10-15 minutes. Note: The warming sensation may not be ideal for those with sensitive skin and this product is not vegan! Find it here.
Clarins SOS Hydra Refreshing Hydration Mask
This cooling mask is formulated with leaf of life (also known as Bryophyllum calycinum), which helps to jumpstart the mechanisms in the skin that promote total hydration. Find it here.
Decorté Moisture Liposome Mask
Don't like spending more than 10 minutes on masks? This mask is your perfect remedy for dry, dull skin—the formula has amino acids, polyphenols and phospholipids (which help the skin to better retain moisture). Ten minutes of application time is all you need to give your skin an instant hydration boost and glow. More here.
Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mask
This sheet mask is infused with green tea, rice and algae for nourishing hydration and anti-ageing benefits. An added plus? Its cooling effects and gentle, hypoallergenic ingredients make it the perfect companion for sensitive skin. Find it here.
GLAMGLOW SUPERMUD Clearing Treatment
This pore-refining formulation is effective in reducing blemishes, redness, scars and all, but it’s main pull is that it won’t leave your skin feeling tight and overly-dry. Find it here.
Drunk Elephant F-Balm™ Electrolyte Waterfacial Hydrating Mask
This overnight mask is perfect for combination and sensitive skin as it is lightweight and free of fragrance. Layer it up before bedtime to get your hydration fix, and wake up with plumper skin by the next morning. Find it here.
Mario Badescu Super Collagen Mask
The collagen in the formulation works to improve the firmness and elasticity of the skin, while reducing redness and irritation, making it perfect for oily or acne-prone skin types (among others). Just note: the smell isn’t for everyone! Find it here.
Chanel Hydra Beauty Hydrating Oxygenating Overnight Mask
This one-of-a-kind mask transforms to dew-like droplets to help your skin oxygenate when you're catching your beauty zzzs. Packed with Blue Ginger, Camellia Alba and a complex of zinc, copper and magnesium, it also strengthens your skin barrier while maintaining optimal moisture levels so you don't have to worry about waking up with parched skin.
Shiseido White Lucent Overnight Cream and Mask
If you’re looking for decadence, you’ve found it. This luxurious all-in-one treatment has a brightening complex to support the skin's natural resistance to the appearance of dark spots and uneven skin tone. The moisturiser also doubles as an intensive face mask for ultra-hydrated, supple skin by the next morning (and it won’t leave a residue on your sheets, either!). Find it here.
