If there’s one positive to quarantine life, it’s that I have more time to mask! Masking is more like a relaxing and comforting self-care ritual for me.
There is nothing like the feeling of post-mask skin smoothness for that feel-good-factor! Not only does it help me de-stress but my skin has been in a happier state too because of this extra pampering. Since we are all spending a whole lot more time indoors, now is the perfect time to treat yourself to some skincare self-care!
Today’s post is about a few Peach and Lily masks that I’ve been loving lately. In case you are not familiar with Peach & Lily, they are the pioneer of K-Beauty offering the latest & greatest Korean beauty products with innovative, clinically-proven ingredients that really work (while being free of any toxins, irritants or sensitizing agents!) And they are cruelty-free as well.
This is an exfoliating mask with a potent brightening and smoothing blend of 10% Glycolic acid, 0.5% Salicylic acid and blue agave extract that unglues dead skin cells and “de-gunks” deep within pores. Think of it as a pro lovel deep-dive exfoliator for a radiant and clear complexion!
Plus, the formula is balanced with soothing ingredients like licorice root extract, green tea, chamomile, aloe and turmeric extract along with hyaluronic acid. Thanks to these calming and hydrating ingredients, this is a resurfacing facial that is powerful yet gentle and suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin. If you’re new to chemical exfoliation though, start slow and work your way up!
I love its super light jelly-like soothing formula that applies easily (isn’t sticky, tacky or heavily fragranced), doesn’t tingle and washes off easily too. All it needs is 15-20 minutes to work its magic. The result? Refreshed and dewy-smooth, supple skin!
It can be used up to 1-2 times per week. With continued use, this exfoliating mask helps improve uneven skin tone and texture while also keeping breakouts at bay. I have dry yet acne-prone skin so this is perfect for me and will be a staple in my skincare rotation!
If you’re dealing with clogged pores, rough patches, bumps or overall dullness, the Super Reboot Resurfacing Mask is a must-try. It’s like a mini face-lift in a jar!
This is a pore-purifying clay mask that combines kaolin clay and bentonite to powerfully “vacuum pores” and draw out even the deepest impurities.
What sets Pore-Proof apart from the typical clay masks is that it won’t leave skin feeling dry, tight and uncomfortable. Thanks to its glycerin-infused formula that’s hydrating and also contains skin-soothing ingredients like wild cherry, strawberry, centella asiatica and licorice extract which have anti-inflammatory properties.
Texture-wise, this mask is creamy-smooth and doesn’t even feel like it’s clay-based. It has a subtle calming scent that’s equal parts earthy and sweet and I like that it doesn’t dry into a hard shell on the skin. As someone with dry skin, I usually avoid clay masks but this one isn’t drying at all and leaves my skin soft and clean.
You just need to leave it on for 10-15 minutes. It does all the heavy-lifting to clear up clogged pores while being calming and hydrating, which makes it suitable for all skin types, even dry, sensitive and mature skin.

If you are struggling with stubborn blackheads and whiteheads, the Pore Proof Clay Mask is for you! It is particularly beneficial for congested and oily skin. It’s also a great weekly mask to keep summer breakouts away (especially from ‘maskne’!)
Sometimes, I do a double masking session where I use the Super Reboot Mask first to exfoliate and clear the way, followed by this clay mask so that my pores get a deep-clean. No better time than now to double down on pampering your skin!
I love sleeping masks—and not just because I’m such a big fan of sleep! Who doesn’t want great skin with minimal effort?
The Overnight Star Sleeping Mask is jam-packed with the goodness of antioxidant-rich ingredients like acai berry and blueberry extracts, Niacinamide, black ginseng extract plus a healthy dose of hyaluronic acid, peptides, squalane and jojoba seed oil to nourish, brighten and get skin glowing. Basically, it supercharges your beauty sleep with the goodness of these powerful superfoods for skin that do all the hard work!

This sleeping mask has a lovely creamy texture, like a cross between a bouncy jelly balm and a whipped gel-cream that just melts right into skin and feels so decadent. I swap it in for my regular night cream, applying as the last step of my nightly routine.
It absorbs quickly and the beautiful blue color becomes transparent as the sleeping mask is massaged into skin. No residue, no greasiness, and no pillow-transfer! Not to mention, it has a soothing and calming spa-like scent with wafting hints of lavender.
The Overnight Star Sleeping Mask really does a good job of reviving dull and tired, stressed-out skin back to life. In the morning, my skin feels soft and plumped with a woke-up-like-this glow!
This sleeping mask is also great for all skin types, but especially lovely for those with dry and sensitive skin. If your skin is going through a dry spell and your everyday night cream or moisturizer just isn’t cutting it, consider this sleeping mask a fast pass to a major hydration boost!
You can get all three of these luxurious face masks together in the Mask & Treat Bundle set or individually at Ulta Beauty. Not only do these Peach and Lily masks help tackle all your tough complexion concerns but they are also perfect for a relaxing self-care session or at-home facial. And frankly, with the current state of things, we could all use a little de-stressing!
