5 Spooky Facial Masks to Get You In the Halloween SpiritSeptember 27, 2021
Not that you need another reason to bust out a face mask, but Halloween is a good occasion if you’re looking for an excuse to try a new one. Consider face-masking a double-duty treat this time of year. Not only will it give you glowing, plump skin to prep for your Halloween makeup, but some masks even resemble costumes themselves. To get in the holiday spirit skincare style, we rounded up five face masks that give us all the Halloween feels (and a major boost of hydration) before we even put on our costumes.
1. Vichy Quenching Mineral Face Mask
This blue-green jelly feels as cooling as it looks. It’s packed with ultra- hydrating glycerin, plus soothing vitamin B3 and Vichy's signature volcanic water to help repair your skin’s barrier. You only leave it on for five minutes, but your skin will reap the moisturizing benefits for up to 24 hours.
2. Lancôme Advanced Génifique Hydrogel Melting Sheet Mask
Want to give your trick-or-treaters a serious scare this Halloween? Just answer the door in this blue gel sheet mask. Creepiness aside, this product is seriously luxurious and deeply hydrating. It contains bifidus extract, a powerful prebiotic that repairs your skin barrier for a plumper, softer and more radiant complexion.
3. Kiehl’s Avocado Nourishing Hydration Mask
Channel your inner Frankenstein with this avocado-green goop. Avocado is actually a moisturizing powerhouse — the oil is enriched with essential fatty acids to leave skin feeling buttery soft. The mask also contains evening primrose oil to boost hydration and elasticity.
4. I Dew Care Space Kitten Exfoliating Charcoal Peel-Off Mask
Give your skincare routine a cosmic spin with this glitter-flecked mask. Ideal for oily to combination skin, it contains sapphire powder to gently exfoliate your skin and charcoal to soak up excess sebum and eliminate whiteheads.
5. Florence by Mills Mind Glowing Peel Peel Off Mask
If your Halloween look is more sweet than spooky, reach for this magenta mud. The peel-off formula contains charcoal and witch hazel to suck up excess oil, as well as lavender oil to calm inflamed skin. The frosted glass packaging will look just as adorable sitting on your vanity long after Halloween ends.
