In the world of skincare, patience is the name of the game. If you want to know if a product works, odds are you'll have to wait weeks, or months, to see if it makes a noticeable difference. That's why we get pleasure out of the little things, like the texture of a cream, or the scent of a serum. Masks fall into this category, too. It's pretty rare to find a mask that you can wash off to see brand-new skin reflected in the mirror. Enter peel-off face masks, the exception to the rule and arguably one of the the most satisfying products to use at home. It's the adult equivalent of pouring Elmer's glue on your hand in middle school. While some skincare products feel like a chore to apply, these masks are exciting, easy to use, and actually do something. Like all skincare, you might not see a world of difference in one use, but at the very least your face will get a nice exfoliation and the intense satisfaction of peeling something off your face will be far from boring. Peel-off masks will have you playing the waiting game too, but damn, this game is fun.
