"It doesn't get better than this 111 Skin sheet mask, part of their larger Black Diamond line. No matter how indulgent I was the night before, this mask the next day — especially paired with an ice roller — always brings my puffy, tired-looking skin back to normal." —Amanda Ross, beauty editor, TZR

"I will forever love the feeling of a detoxifying, clarifying mask. The downside is they can often dry out your skin, leaving it feeling tight and itchy. This soothing mask from Mara has the opposite effect in that my face still feels refreshed while remaining hydrated and glowy." —Angela Melero, executive editor, TZR

“This mask looks like jelly, but it's much better used on your skin. With a blend of pomegranate enzymes, willow bark extract, and pink clay, it detoxes pores, brightens, and softens the skin — my face always looks clear and radiant when I rinse it off.”—Erin Lukas, deputy beauty editor, TZR

"This is not the first time I've professed my love of this masque, and it probably won't be the last. It's really one of the few all natural exfoliation options out there that gives me gratifying, glowy results — and in less than 10 minutes!" Alison Syrett, deputy fashion editor, TZR

Retinol Rescue Overnight Cream
"This may not technically be a mask but I use it as such, overnight. If your skin can't tolerate retinol, no matter how little or often you use it, then this is a fantastic entry point into the ingredient. Plus it gives you next-level glow." —Kathy Lee, editor-in-chief, TZR

"This clay mask is unique because it contains lactic acid which lightly exfoliates and volcanic clusters that are packed with minerals to help control oil and minimize pores. It's great for days when my T-zone is just a bit too shiny and needs extra attention." — Jessica Fields, beauty writer, TZR
