The holidays are always a glittery time of year, thanks to the many festive lights and shimmery decorations — but, have you ever considered getting into the spirit of the season by adding some sparkle to your face products?
Judging from the two highly anticipated masks that are set for release in December, peel-off glitter face masks are going to be the season’s most unusual and satisfying beauty trend. So, it might be time to reconsider those boring, muted face masks taking up valuable real estate in your medicine cabinet.
Here are the shimmery face masks to watch out for this holiday — because nothing will make you feel like a glamorous Christmas unicorn quite like a face full of glitter.
This shimmery gel mask is meant to boost radiance, thanks to its infusion of real gold. (In case you wanted to feel even more luxe.) Too Faced founder Herrod Blandino says that the mask is “the most amazing radiance boosting and exfoliating peel-off mask I’ve ever used,” and that “It leaves your skin feeling smooth, soft and makeup ready—and it’s begging for a selfie.”
I’ve wanted to do a glitter mask for more than 5 years but the science just wasn’t ready. I’m so happy to tell you that Glow Job is almost here! It’s the most amazing radiance boosting and exfoliating peel-off mask I’ve ever used—and it’s infused with REAL glittering gold⭐️. It leaves your skin feeling smooth, soft and makeup ready—and it’s begging for a selfie. #tfglowjob #toofaced
Oh, and the packaging isn’t too shabby, either.
While there’s no official release date for this mask, Jerrod teases that it’s “almost here” — so I’d anticipate a December 1 release, if you’re anxious to nab this one for a stocking stuffer.
This mask basically contains all the benefits of the iconic #GravityMud peel-off face mask, except it’s chock full of star-shaped pieces of glitter. And if that sounds like it might feel uncomfortable, don’t worry: GlamGlow says on their website that “The glitter particles are suspended in the gel formula and are comfortable to wear.”
The company also adds that the face mask is meant to be peeled off and thrown in the trash, as opposed to being washed off with water — so you don’t have to feel guilty about washing a bunch of glitter into the septic system/environment.
One thing is for certain: this mask is definitely made for selfies.
That said, if you’ve ever tried the #GravityMud treatment, then you know that GlamGlow masks are pretty damn effective — so, hopefully the anticipated $69 price tag won’t deter you too much.
After all, when good skincare practices can also lead to good selfies, that’s pretty much a win-win situation.
