It’s that time again. It’s time for a healthy dose of our beauty favorites here at Momtrends. And said favorites come in the form of our Momtrends MVP’s: Best Face Masks! Last time we focused on serums and facial oils for this beauty series. I use them daily and couldn’t live without the near instant hydration and treatment options they provide. I’m a sucker for the instant gratification that facial oils, more than almost anything, offer that for my skin.
That being said, there are some other VIPs in my skincare regimen that deliver pretty fast results too, like face masks. I don’t use them daily, but not many weeks go by where I don’t apply a face mask to my skin at least once. I know we’ve been hearing a lot about face masks this year, but this kind won’t irritate your skin. Haha! In fact, they might help calm any irritation you get from that other kind of face mask.
The Best Face Masks for Winter
As always, I am super excited to bring you our top beauty picks again, but this roundup has me really pumped because it contains one of my holy grail products. I have been using this face mask for years and can’t imagine stopping, EVER, it is that good. Stick around and you will find out how to get the youthful rosy look we all miss. Haha!
Hey, I’m ok with my age. With it has come many gifts, but I’m not about to turn down younger looking skin. That’s just a fact. Thankfully making face masks a regular part of my skincare regimen means I don’t have to. A face mask is the perfect partner for my favorite anti-aging products!
Why Moms Need Face Masks
Face masks set off my routine in the same way that a hair mask does. It’s an extra dose of hydration. It’s an extra treatment for problem areas. Just think of face masks as the enhancement to your skincare ritual that you never knew you needed until you found the right mask.
Personally, I have found more than a few masks that fit the bill so I rotate my favorites in and out according to how my skin is feeling and looking at the time. But that’s pretty indicative of how I treat my product choices in general. It’s all about the condition of my skin and the weather. How much humidity is in the air plays a big role in my routine too!
So, why don’t you sit back, kick your feet up and explore some new face masks with me. You just might find one that you have to try STAT. With winter on its way, now is as good a time as any to get your skin in tip-top condition before that cold, dry area wreaks havoc on it! I consider a good skincare routine your armor. It will protect your skin from that humidity free air!
Best Sheet Mask:
Since I mentioned that other kind of face mask and the skin irritation that can come from wearing them, how about a sheet mask created specifically for that issue? The AFTERMASK covers the areas your reusable face mask touches, so when you take it off for the day, you can pop on this sheet mask to fight breakouts and remove toxins that were left behind after being trapped in your other mask.
Best Exfoliating Face Mask:
I exfoliate weekly. My sensitive skin doesn’t allow me to do it more than that, but I really rely on that once a week ritual to refine my skin’s texture. My professional makeup artist friend swears by this line and I now know why! This mask gets deep into those clogged pores while sloughing off dead skin. Smoother texture can be yours in a flash!
Best Natural Face Mask:
When I saw that this face mask billed itself as a green smoothie for your skin, I knew I had to try it. I live for green smoothies! I’m all for drinking AND applying my superfoods especially when they help detoxify my skin! I just got into spirulina bowls too, so imagine my excitement when I saw it was an ingredient in this mask. You can make healthy, natural choices from the inside out and the outside in!
Best Face Mask for Sensitive Skin:
If you have sensitive skin you have to be very careful which products you put on it. I know from personal experience. What good is younger looking skin if it’s broken out and inflamed all the time? I have had good luck with Good Elephant products. I think I have mentioned in the past that they have a cult following. One application of this mask and you will see why. True to its name it’s like a mini facial in a bottle. Sure there is powerful AHA, but you will also find soothing matcha. So, you can treat your skin issues without the redness!
Best Hydrating Face Mask:

If you’ve been reading my Beauty MVP’s you know how much I love hyaluronic acid. It does SO many things and is one of my all time favorite anti-aging ingredients. So, I was super delighted to find it in a mask that is extra moisturizing as well! And not only does this mask hydrate and refiner your skin’s texture, you can use it as an overnight mask to achieve ultimate hydration!
Best Face Mask for Acne Prone Skin:
Want to feel like a teenager again? Use this mask. Haha! I know it’s a brand that you probably last remember using many, many years ago, but this mask is legit! If you haven’t quite reached the stage of adult breakouts, get ready. Keep this oil-free formula in your medicine cabinet and you’ll be ready to clear your pores and soothe your skin. Who has time for adult acne? Not this girl!
Best Soothing Face Mask:
If you haven’t tried a gel mask yet, you are seriously missing out! We all know how soothing cucumber is, well put it in a mask and dry, irritated skin simply drinks it up. It’s calming ingredients like chamomile and aloe make this mask perfect for post treatment care when your skin needs to be babied! And the gel formula is instantly cooling!
Best Brightening Face Mask:
I saved the best for last of course. Remember when I mentioned that holy grail product? Well, this is it my friends. The second I wash this face mask off my skin is glowing like I just got back from a fresh run on the slopes! That ski bunny glow is bright and it’s GOOD! I have used this mask weekly for many moons now. I just can’t quit it! It’s my dull skin fighter and a game changer in the cold weather months. Try it. Trust me!
Well, if you weren’t regularly using face masks before, I bet you’re ready to start now right? I believe in only using products that are worth your time. Nobody has time for superfluous anything right now. On that note, let me leave you by saying if you’re ready to kick your skincare routine up a notch, these face masks are certainly worth a try!
And as an added bonus...Here's a video featuring a multi-tasking face mask that I still love after all these years!
