A spa day is something worth cherishing, but there’s not always time to squeeze one in.

Luckily, at-home masks are better and easier to use than ever. All you have to do is sit back and relax (at least for a few minutes) to get tightening, brightening results. Here are our top picks for masks that perform miracles.

Bioxidea 48 Diamond Miracle Mask ($79 at This mask does it all — lifts, plumps, tightens, lightens, brightens and resurfaces the skin — using a fine diamond powder to gently exfoliate while locking in moisture. The results are visible within 15 to 30 minutes after application.

111SKIN Bio Cellulose Facial Treatment Mask ($160 at Barneys New York, downtown). Plastic surgeon Dr. Yannis Alexandrides’ line just made its Seattle debut at Barneys, and this mask is a standout. It contains tissue-fine fibers that adhere to the skin to allow deeper penetration of its brightening, moisturizing ingredients.

Charlotte Tilbury Goddess-Skin Clay Mask ($70 at Nordstrom). Oftentimes clay masks can leave the skin feeling tight, but this one is different. Spanish clay naturally absorbs surface skin oil and draws out impurities — without drying out your skin.

Bliss Facial in a Box ($14 at Ulta). This treatment includes an energizing mask, glycolic acid peel (one of our favorites) and an oxygen-infusing moisturizer. How’s that for efficiency?

Glossier Moisturizing Moon Mask ($22 at Apply this creamy, dreamy mask to get intense hydration in 20 minutes from sweet almond oil, plant-based squalane and hyaluronic acid.

Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Boosting 5-Minute Facial ($87 at Macy’s). This incredible two-step, biweekly system includes a self-foaming mask and replenishing serum that’ll pamper and treat your face no matter the issue. Dull skin? You’re covered. Uneven skin tone? It’s gone.
