Ideal vs. Great Deal: Skin and Hair Repair
The mighty mask
Our Beauty Director gives the lowdown on the best hair and skin moisturizing masks.
Ideal: Hair masks
Fekkai Salon Technician Color Care Rapid Results Moisture Mask ($38; fekkai.com)
"After shampooing, dip fingertips into the mousse-like formula, apply, then rinse after three minutes. The result? Salon-silky hair. You can use it on dry ends every time you wash, or all over once a week."
Great deal: Hair masks
L'Oreal Paris EverPure Moisture Deep Restorative Masque
"It's easy to protect my highlights with this three-minute hair mask containing UV filters. The moisturizing vitamin E leaves strands soft, while energizing mint and rosemary perk me right up!"
Ideal: Face masks
Sampar Nocturnal Line-up Mask
"Who can resist a face mask that hydrates overnight? Apply to clean skin before bed, and you'll wake up with smoother, softer skin (thanks to anti-aging walnut extract).
Just don't forget to rinse it off in the morning!
Great deal: Face masks
Aubrey Jojoba Meal & Oatmeal Mask & Scrub
"My favorite double-duty face mask! I smooth the grainy oatmeal mixture on, then leave for one minute to get the benefits of a scrub, 15 minutes if I want the rose and carrot oils to work their magic on my dry skin."
Ideal: Body masks
Borghese FANGO Brilliante Brightening Mud Mask for Face and Body
"Love to treat dry spots on my body with this hydrating mask containing moisturizing avocado oil and exfoliating sea salts. It's quick-dry, so you can rinse off in less than 10 minutes."
Great deal: Body masks
AHAVA Natural Dead Sea Body Mud
"I'll use this mask after a particularly tough workout. The Dead Sea-derived mud helps relieve my overworked muscles while smoothing skin.
Tip: Use it in the shower—it's messy!"
