The Perfect Face Masks To Try Today

Face masks are the perfect quick-fix for almost any skin concern. Need some moisture? There's a mask for that. Suffering from an out-of-the-blue breakout? There's a mask for that, too. They leave your complexion calm, refreshed, and glowing in the matter of minutes. Seriously, what's not to love?
Since I'm sure the Refinery29 beauty team isn't alone in our fascination with these treatments, we thought we'd share the ones we're currently obsessing over. The holidays are the best time to try something new, because it helps you do something productive while you're sitting around in pajamas. Grab the Sephora gift card you just received from that aunt who didn't know what else to get you, and stock up on a few face masks. From oil-absorbing clays to scary-but-effective gel sheets, there's something for everyone.

If you're not into honey face cleansing as much as we are, this is the next best thing. Made with pure honey, the unique texture of this Fresh mask melts into the skin, creating a moisture-preserving effect. Sure, it might take a little more splashes of water to fully remove the film, but it will leave you with supple and — dare we say — velvety skin.
