The DARE team’s go-to face masks for every skin type

Superdrug masks with superhero background

Annie Whitfield, beauty coordinator

The level of satisfaction I get when applying a clay face mask is not normal. I love painting the clay onto my face and feeling it tighten as it dries. This purifying clay is my favourite – it delves deep into my pores, mimicking a dirt-destroying workout, which whips them back into shape. It’s a weekly must for me.

I have skin that’s as high maintenance as a D-list celeb – a little bit greasy and desperate for attention – so for face masks, I need
a certified box-ticker. This mask mimics the after-effects of a facial, thanks to fruit acids that nibble away at dead skin cells to brighten and smooth. Think of it as a guaranteed good skin day.

Masks can be a minefield when you’re a rosacea sufferer like me. Anything too stripping induces redness and anything too greasy causes pustules. This is my SOS: gentle enough to calm a flare and super-hardworking to deliver serious moisture.

After a video went viral of a man applying a sheet mask so expertly you couldn’t even tell he was wearing one (no, seriously), I’ve accepted I’m a total amateur. However, this brightening, biodegradable sheet mask left my skin so glowy and soft, I’m quite willing to look as if I’ve got a slice of wet ham on my face for 15-20 minutes.
