Esthemax Hydrojelly Mask
Packed full of key ingredients, the Esthemax Hydrojelly Mask has a wide range of 20 different masks, designed to soothe almost any skin complexity under the sun.
Their top-seller in this range, the Egyptian Rose, proves why we should opt for roses on our faces, rather than our vases. The hydrating and healing properties of the magical ingredient, Organic rose, protect the skin from moisture loss and enhance the skin barrier, whereas the anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties of rose water and rose oil reduce flare-ups and redness. While great for all skin types, this rose mask is especially beneficial for those with dry skin and those looking to reduce signs of ageing.
Another favourite is the Purifying Activated Charcoal which includes key ingredients like pure charcoal, tea tree oil and peppermint oil - AKA the triple threat to combat oily skin and clogged pores. Other masks not to be missed are the Illuminating Orange and Brightening Complex, both perfect for skin brightening.
As a supplier to beauty centres and medispas, Esthemax provides customers with both the option for wholesale and retail purchases, with the masks available in larger jars if customers choose to buy them wholesale.
The Esthemax Hydrojelly masks retail for $55 for 2 masks and are available at supporting beauty centres and medispas, as well as the Esthemax e-store.
Why we love it: If you have ever experienced a hydro jelly mask in a spa, chances are the subtly scented, and generously hydrating product was by Esthemax. Create your own version of a spa with their high-quality products, that are easy to mix and use in the comfort of your own home. And the sheer variety of options in this range! There is something for everyone out there regardless of your skin concerns.
Fenty Skin Cookies N Clean Whipped Clay Pore Detox Face Mask
If your pores are in need of a serious detox, consider this. Riri rarely misses with her Fenty products, and she definitely did not miss with this one.
The amazing clay mask features 4 key ingredients: clay, charcoal, salicylic acid and rhubarb and ginger extract. The clay and charcoal absorb the gunk from our pores and provide our skin with the deep cleanse its been craving. Whereas salicylic acid works to clarify and refine skin, which improves skin textures and reduces the look of pores. Last but not least, the rhubarb and ginger extract help soothe the skin, removing redness. Leave it on for a mere 10-minutes and watch it deliver soft, conditioned and brightened skin. If you have oily or acne-prone skin, this mask can surely benefit you.
Best of all, it is cruelty-free, vegan, fragrance-free, non-comedogenic and all those good things! What’s not to love?
Why we love it: The heat and humidity in Singapore provide a conducive environment for the attraction of sweat, dust and bacteria in our follicles and glands, which in turn causes the accumulation of sebum in our pores. The Cookies N Clean Clay Pore Detox Face Mask gives the skin a much-needed deep cleansing when needed. It doesn’t actually smell or taste like cookies and cream (sadly).

Feel your skin warm and relax as the Japanese volcanic ash works to open up the pores for an efficient detox-sesh.
