Yes, returning home each day and masking the night away is the ideal. But the reality is us ladies are squeezing in treat-yourself time wherever we can get it out of pure necessity. At the office. At the airport. At the-guy-I-just-met-on-Tinder's place. And since we can't exactly keep jars of the essentials in our handbags at all times, we look to face mask pods, which are little single-serve capsules that are compact, easy to toss around, and pack a lot of punch. From the super moisturizers to the master de-cloggers, these masks have got you 24/7.
This 4-in-1 pack features a glacial clay mask for deep pore cleansing, coconut wash-off mask for a boost of hydration, moisturizing mask for a plumper appearance, and a brightening sleep pack for improving fine lines and texture.
