#6 For Beloved One Hyaluronic Acid GHK-Cu Moisturizing Bio-Cellulose Mask, $63 (3 pieces)
As one of the few products that beauty editors will repurchase, you can be sure they are absolutely phenomenal. First of all, the mask is made of bio-cellulose, which has ultra-fine fibres smaller than our pores, allowing for maximum contact area for optimal absorption of its hydrating essences. And since it clings onto skin perfectly, you never have to worry about the mask slipping or sliding. In addition, the hydrating essence is also supercharged with minerals to aid product penetration and to energise skin so not only is skin utterly soft and supple, it also looks revived.
