Here at THE GLOSS, in addition to our regular skincare routine there are a couple of beauty treats we love to use once or twice a week to help us relax and give our skin some extra radiance. After a hectic weekend or a busy day at work there is nothing better than coming home and indulging in a bit of self-care with a face mask

We have rounded up our top essential face masks that target everything from dry skin, tired under eyes, breakouts, and chapped lips. While some of them need a little more time than others, there are also a couple of overnight options that do all the hard work while you sleep.

Check out our tried and tested picks below to get your skin glowing.

Best Sheet Mask 111Skin

111Skin cyro-depuffing energy mask, €110 pack of 5, at

If you are not sure where to start with sheet masks this option from 111Skin is an all-round complexion booster that targets multiple issues and leaves your skin looking revitalised and plumped. Not only is Victoria Beckham a fan but her whole family have been seen using various products from the range, including David who favours the Celestial Black Diamond Eye Mask. This hydro-gel mask uses a combination of tetrapeptide-5 and alpha glucosyl hesperidin to mimic the effects of cryo-therapy to cool, calm and depuff the skin. Caffeine is also included to re-energise the skin and smooth out any fine lines and signs of tiredness.

Best Under Eye Mask Peter Thomas Roth

Peter Thomas Roth water drench hyaluronic cloud hydra-gel eye patches (30 pairs), €54.20;

These eye patches from Peter Thomas Roth have become a bathroom shelf staple for us. Each tub contains 30 pairs and we love to use them on a Saturday morning while drinking our coffee to decompress after an exhausting week and reinvigorate our under eyes. These patches are packed full of skin nourishing ingredients such as ceramide NP, collagen, and marshmallow root extract, that work simultaneously to smooth out and reduce the appearance of fine lines. Meanwhile caffeine, arnica, and hyaluronic acid deliver a much needed dose of moisture to reduce puffiness and dark circles.

Best Overnight Mask Farmacy 10% Niacinamide Night Face Mask

Farmacy Beauty 10% Niacinamide Night Mask, €48.30, at Space NK;

The ultimate lazy-girl beauty hack, if you struggle to find the time for sheet and under eye masks then this overnight treatment is the one for you. It takes less than a minute to slather on your face before you go to bed and leaves your skin looking brighter, softer, and smoother when you wake up. This overnight mask is one of our skin saviours and we also love wearing when travelling on long-haul flights as it wards off the dreaded airplane dryness.

Best Lip Mask Laneige

Laneige lip sleeping mask, €24.45; at

This overnight lip mask from K-Beauty brand Laneige went viral on social media when it was first released due to how well it replenishes the moisture in your lips while you sleep. It comes in five flavours but the original berry version is still our favourite. It uses a powerful combo of berry extracts to deliver antioxidant protection, along with shea butter to condition the lips. This is a must-have for anyone who wears lipstick regularly.
