The standard-issue thinking when it comes to masks is that they are one of two things: superfluous, or expensive and superfluous. But you read ITG, so you know that the first part is not at all true. Quite the opposite, actually. Pick a skin problem you'd like to solve (your pores are congested, you're looking dull, etc.), slather on an applicable mask, and let it go to work while you do other things. So, not a superfluous luxury...a productive one.
New as of today, we're launching the Glossier mask duo: two no-brainer, easy-to-use skin treatments that were developed to compliment each other for skin that's nourished, hydrated, and balanced. And dewy—you know we're all about dewiness.
First, there's the Mega Greens Galaxy Pack. Filled with leafy greens, antioxidant-rich superfruits, spongey and exfoliating bits of orange rind in a base of purifying white clay, it's formulated to work like a juice cleanse for your face. Impurities are drawn out, vitamins and super nutrients go in. Sensitive skin sisters, take note: it doesn't strip or harden to an uncomfortable crust like most clay masks we're used to. It dries comfortably after 20 minutes and leaves a velvety matte, clean finish that doesn't feel tight.
To follow the Mega Greens, or whenever you're feeling dry or dull there's the Moisturizing Moon Mask. It's a super creamy, but light consistency that feels amazing on skin has all the champion hydrating ingredients (hyaluronic acid, mushroom, glycerin, plant-derived squalane), and also works to gently brighten with lemon and licorice extract. Bam! Two for one. Twenty minutes and you're dewy, bouncy, and bright. Use regularly as a twice-a-week brightening and hydrating treatment, or whenever skin needs soothing—we threw in some aloe and honey for that.
As for things these masks are not: fragranced, formulated with parabens, tested on animals, or super expensive—$22 each. To sweeten the deal, they ship free from Glossier.com when you order both together. It's true what they say: Good things come in pairs.
