If your skin is craving some TLC, an effective tried-and-tested face mask might be just what you need and to help you find the right one, we've rounded up the very best masks for every skin type.
We absolutely love face masks for an evening of pampering with our best friends and it's always hilarious to scare unknowing partners/children/pets with crazy-looking faces, but face masks are not gimmicks - they mean serious business and can do wonders for your skin.
They work by offering an extra, more intensive, boost of those miracle ingredients in your regular skincare, so they're best used every few days, or when you feel you need them the most.
If you keep them on your skin for an extensive period, your skin will be able to fully absorb all that goodness, leaving your face feeling cleaner, tighter and more refreshed.
And you can find a mask tailored for pretty much any skin issue you might be experiencing.
Whether you want to fix hyper-pigmentation, minimise the appearance of pores or wrinkles, hydrate or control oils, there's a face mask that will do the trick.
Many face masks do provide instant gratification, but do remember to be patient - you'll see best results if you continue using them over time.

Why we love: This peel-off glowy silver mask might seem like a fun gimmick, but this mask firms and plumps like no other. You can almost feel it hardening and working as you wear it, and after peeling off your skin feels refreshed and renewed.
Why we love: A cult favourite and for good reason, this delicious smelling mask unclogs pores, and 'peels' the skin's surface to repair and renew. Don't be alarmed if you can feel it working with a slight sting, and the redness you'll experience afterwards will quickly dissipate to reveal luminous, restored skin.
Why we love: Intense charcoal masks are best for unclogging pores, but this one is a great multi-tasker. The charcoal powder draws out deep-seated debris, while the mineral clays soak up excess oil, leaving skin feeling smooth, refreshed and mattified.
Why we love: A cost effective way to minimise the appearance of wrinkles, you can choose your dose to decide your outcome. Leave it on for 10 minutes, 20 minutes, or even overnight to maximise the anti-aging benefits.
Why we love: This foil-backed sheet mask doesn't just sit on your skin - it penetrates into deep layers of skin, evening out skintone and delivering intense hydration.
Why we love: Perfect for dry and damaged skin, regular use of this mask will reduce inflammation and irritation.
Why we love: This affordable miracle mask is perfect for scarred, blemished skin. It's great for younger skin, but also works wonders on middle-age breakouts.
Why we love: this warming mask transforms into smooth cream as you rub it on. With honey and echinacea this mask is the thing for tired, stressed-out skin.
Why we love: This no-nonsense face mask controls the build up of face oils, without drying out your skin. Clay and calamine based, it clears blackheads and reduces oily shine.
