SUPERMUD Activated Charcoal Treatment, $59 at Sephora
Nikkia Joy: "I use as a spot treatment on acne. If I am really, really legitimately wanting to zap a breakout, if I’ve got like a special event or something, I will use this every single time and it has never failed me. This is a charcoal mask. It smells actually amazing. It’s like licorice or something. A lot of people don’t like the smell of it; I personally love the smell of it."
7th Heaven Passion Peel-Off Mask, $1.31 at Boots
Beauty Within: "[Compared to a more expensive peel-off mask], surprisingly I think I would actually go with the el cheapo one that looked really dodgy. Because I feel like they kind of did the same thing and it doesn't feel like it’s making my skin itchy or anything like that."
Pumpkin Enzyme Mask, $35 at Banish
Trevor Ritchie: "This is a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful face mask if you need exfoliation, if you need to slough off any dead skin cells. This is a natural pumpkin enzyme mask that helps you exfoliate the skin. This mask is full of alpha hydroxy acids that are really gonna help to slough off the dead skin. This face mask [will] help reveal your natural, glowing skin, getting rid of all that dry, dead skin and just revealing that youthful glow. Great for anyone with acne skin, dry skin, oily skin, dull skin — it is good for every single skin type. This face mask is going to reverse skin damage, reduce fine lines and improve elasticity."
Rose Face Mask, $62 at Fresh
Nikkia Joy: "The purpose of this mask is to hydrate and tone. This smells like actual real roses. [You can] walk around the house or do housework or whatever it is, it’s not one of those masks where you’re actually stuck on the couch. It’s got this special algae in it and that delivers optimum moisture. It's just got so much incredible stuff in it and I have tried a lot of hydration masks that do not work at all. This, I notice a huge difference in my skin. My skin feels so soft, so plump and moisturized, so hydrated. Like, I love it and because it does such an amazing job of hydrating the skin, definitely when ... I’m using this once a week, I find that I’m producing a lot less oil."
Just To Clarify Jelly Mask, $13.95 at Lush
Trevor Ritchie: "It just turns into a beautiful butter, it coats the skin beautifully, it leaves your skin so well hydrated as well as exfoliated. It is actually the perfect face mask. It’s definitely one of my top face masks, maybe even one of my top three favorite face masks."
