The Best Face Mask For Dry Skin
Rough, flaky and tight, dry skin needs an intense burst of moisture to feel nourished and rehydrated. So, the best face mask for dry skin will have a hydrating formula that infuses the skin with nourishing vitamins and nutrients.
Our Sanctuary Spa Glacial Splash Hydrating Face Mask is perfect for dry skin. Infused with refreshing ice cap water, it keeps skin feeling cool and hydrated. It’s also formulated with Vitamin B3 and Alpine Minerals to brighten and replenish, leaving skin looking plump, fresh and dewy.
The Best Face Masks For Oily Skin
If you have oily skin, you no doubt struggle with shine and clogged and enlarged pores. When choosing your face mask, opt for purifying ingredients, like Charcoal or Clay, that absorb excess oils, unclogs pores and helps to rebalance sebum production.
Charcoal face mask
Our Sanctuary Spa 5 Minute Thermal Charcoal Detox Mask is a Kaolin Clay and Charcoal face mask that opens the pores, draws out impurities and absorb excess oils, to leave skin purified, mattified and soothed. Apply to the face, relax for 5 minutes and allow this detox mask to work its magic.
Clay face mask
Our Sanctuary Spa Diamond Dust Refining Scrub Face Mask blends purifying French Rose Clay with Pink Diamond Dust and Rose Quartz extract to cleanse the pores and gently remove impurities, while smoothing the skin and creating a healthy, mattified glow. Leave on for 15 minutes, then rinse.
The Best Overnight Face Mask
Throughout the day, the skin goes through a lot. Everything from UV rays, wind and pollution to heating, air conditioning and impurities can cause damage and emphasize signs of premature ageing. Luckily, the body works to repair skin damage while you sleep – and the right overnight face mask can help support this natural renewal process. Our top tip? Look for formulas with repairing antioxidants and peptides.
Our Sanctuary Spa Beauty Sleep Recovery Face Mask is designed with intense recovery in mind. Its youth-boosting Tetrapeptides work to counteract damage caused by daily aggressors (think pollution, free radicals, dirt, and impurities), while calming Orange Flower Oil and relaxing Lavender help you to drift off to sleep. Wear overnight to wake up to restored, revitalised and youthful-looking skin.
Follow our 5-step night skincare routine and wake up to healthier, brighter skin.

How Often Should You Use A Face Mask?
