The Highest Ranked Luxury Face Mask Right Now

If you haven't noticed, we're pretty obsessed with skin care. On any given day, you'll find us carefully cleansing our faces before slathering on some of the top-reviewed serums, night creams, and eye gels. Heck, we even throw cleansing towelettes into our gym bags to do a quick wipe-down post spin class. Given that a glowing, healthy complexion is our end game, you can bet we take our more intensive products (read: face masks) very seriously. To weed out the duds, we turned to our friends at Rank & Style to give us the inside scoop on which one to nab.

The site uses customer reviews, editors' picks, and overall buzz to figure out which products are going to work the hardest for you. Consider its authors beauty lovers with a penchant for math. After crunching the numbers, Rank & Style named SK-II's Facial Treatment Mask the winner for its rave online reviews and its popularity among editors and consumers alike.

On Sephora.com, user amib112 wrote, "This mask is amazing — I've never gotten instant results like this from any [other] mask or treatment. [It] leaves me with a glow, and the next morning I see a major difference in clarity. I leave it on for 20 minutes or so and then massage the serum into my neck, décolletage, and hands. Also, the packet itself has a lot of [excess] serum in it — I squeeze it into a small bottle and use it for a few days following my mask to really maximize results. I'm impressed, and [I] don't say this often about skin treatments."

The face mask's star ingredient is Pitera, which Mary Schook, licensed aesthetician and founder of M.S. Apothecary, says is "a nutrient-rich, [fermented] yeast product that helps with anti-aging, brightening, and purifying the skin." (If you're not already aware of the powers of fermented skin-care ingredients, we've got more info on that here.) Yes, this mask is on the pricey side, but if you ask us, it's well worth the splurge. And thanks to amib112, you now have a handy hack to stretch it to the very last drop.
