Find 15 minutes to lie on the sofa, zone out and refresh your skin with a moisturising mask. Not only will your skin feel better, your body and mind will benefit.

Fancl Moist & Vital Mask (HK$160/3 sheets)

A very luxurious, silky smooth mask. Unlike many products, there's no excessive, messy liquid here, but just enough of the creamy, rich ingredients to leave the skin very soft and supple.

Shu Uemura Depsea Moisture Replenishing Mask (HK$400/6 sheets)

It's not dripping wet, but just moist enough to drench the whole face. The mask has a unique design using unwoven cloth which sits better on the skin. Gorgeous - you definitely get what you pay for.

Skinfood Facial Water Vita-B (Gel Mask) (HK$195/5 sheets)

Full of natural ingredients such as Alaskan glacial water and vitamin B, this gel mask cools and nourishes the skin upon contact. Skin is noticeably more refreshed and smoother after use.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Mask (HK$119.50/5 sheets)

The fairly thick mask material seems to hold the moisturising essence in, preventing it from dripping down your face (which always takes away from the relaxation of putting on a face mask). Skin is left smooth, but not sticky.

Laneige Hydra Solution Mask (HK$350/8 sheets)

An effective moisturising mask that fits your face well, as it's designed with two separate sheets to cover your upper and lower face. May cause irritation on sensitive skin.
