The 13 Best Face Masks You Can Buy In Australia

Skin-loving saviours

Our love for face and skincare masks takes many forms, from serum-infused sheet masks to oil-absorbing clay and purifying charcoal, and, of course, anti-ageing masks.

But as much as there’s joy to be found in experimenting, there’s no denying that the sheer abundance of what’s available on the market can be intimidating.

And so to help you find the version that’s right for you, we rounded up 13 of Australia’s best face and beauty masks, catering to all different skin types and concerns – like dark spots, dehydrated or dry skin, wrinkles and fine lines and even dull skin.

Scroll on to see them all.

OLAY Regenerist Niacinamide + Collagen Peptide 24 Sheet Mask

OLAY Regenerist Niacinamide + Collagen Peptide 24 Sheet Mask, $5.49 at Chemist Warehouse

With one third of the active ingredients found in the Olay Collagen Peptide 24 moisturiser, this luxe face sheet mask instantly firms and plumps for glowing skin that looks ‘morning fresh’ all day long. Olay’s bioavailable collagen has greater affinity to the skin, so it is better absorbed to target dryness, for plump skin and brighter skin, plus the beauty masks are formulated without parabens, sulphates, phthalates, petrolatum and mineral oils.

Each face sheet mask (rated four stars on BeautyCrew) is also enhanced with a special elastic substrate to ensure an optimal fit, meaning it won’t slip or move while you take some me-time (or multi-task while you mask!).
