There's something extremely satisfying about peeling off a face mask rather than rinsing it off over the sink. But aside from the fact that the removal makes a masking session more fun, the peel-off feature is actually practical, too. Since the gooey gel hardening signals that it's time to take it off, you're never sitting with one on for too long. And we all know how easy it is to lose track of time while masking when you're mid-season deep in a binge-watching session of your favourite show, or Snapchatting selfies of yourself wearing it.
Since there's a number of formulas out there that clear pores, hydrate, and soothe skin, we've taken some of the guesswork out of choosing what mask you should use by matching the best peel-off ones to use for treating common skin struggles. Keep scrolling to find your new favourite face mask.
