The Instant Face Mask

Is there any beauty ritual more cliched than the face mask? In movies, it seems that anytime a boyfriend catches his girlfriend unawares in her pajamas, she's in the middle of her face-mask treatment. I have to admit: I don't really like to be seen carrying out this rather indulgent activity either. That is why I love the Biore Self-Heating Mask, which takes less than two minutes from start to finish. You just wash your face, squeeze the gel-like solution out of its packet, massage it into your face for 60 seconds, then wash it off with water.

As the name suggests, this mask feels warm as it goes on, and despite its drugstore origins, it works better than almost every other face mask I've tried. The warming effect opens up and clears out your pores and leaves your skin feeling smooth and buffed. Plus, it’s over so fast that no one has to know about your stupid beauty rituals but you. You can buy a box of eight treatment capsules here for $6.99. Better yet, a little of this stuff goes a long way; you'll probably only need to use half of a capsule each time.

FAB, thanks for posting about Biore. I've always wondered about the brand but didn't try it. I'm excited about picking this up the next time I hit the drugstore! Also, Nycgirl, your aspirin suggestion sounds good.

If you have break-out prone skin, you can also make an aspirin mask, which I do once a week to really purify my skin. Crushed aspirin is a more strong form of salicylic acid (and cheaper than Bliss' Steep Clean Mask). Make sure you get uncoated/lightly coated and non-colored aspirin tablets. Crush/grind them into a powder, and add just a bit of warm water. You just leave it on until it's dry. My very sensitive skin does not react to it, but it does make me sneeze.

The best instant face mask is egg whites- Crack the egg, remove the yoke, beat a little, and apply. only one or two are needed, its super cheap and already in most fridges, and really does a good job of sucking the oils out of skin. Try it!

Yeah, I love these masks... as with most facial products, I'm not sure if it really does anything, but it's so soothing and it makes my skin feel soft right afterward. ----------- “Buy me a dream: Shopping for clothes isn’t about the things you need, it’s about the woman you’ll become when you wear them.”
