La Mer, Lifting & firming mask
This is an award-winning mask that is popular among women (and men) who travel a lot, because its concentrated formula nourishes the skin from deep within. To benefit fully from the mask, apply an even layer before going to bed; use the brush that comes with it for application. Leave it on the skin for at least two hours, allowing enough time to absorb and soak into the skin. After waking up, use your regular face wash and moisturizer. The skin should be ultra hydrated, firm and lifted.

Starskin is a fairly new brand from the Netherlands but manufactured in Switzerland. The bio-cellulose material used to be exclusively used for medical patients suffering from burn wounds. Starskin has developed a mask made from bio-cellulose to prevent it from feeling heavy and uncomfortable. The brand offers six different masks, and is one of the first to launch foot masks (for after wearing heels) and hand masks to get rid of dead skin around the cuticles. It is one of the fastest-growing masks on the market.
Institut Esthederm, Lightening Buffing Mask
The formula combines exfoliation with a care mask to remove dead cells and surface irregularities. Apply an even layer on the face and allow it to dry for about one minute. Once it has dried, peel it off by using your fingertips. This technique clears out and tightens the pores instantly. Apply your favorite moisturizer afterward.
