Two words: FACE MASKS. I’m all about them. I’ll even wear one out in public if my face needs it. Maskin’ up is one of my favorite ways to instantly and easily feel like a self-care beauty guru—and nothing beats that post-mask glow. Plus, I’m obviously trying to stay young forever, and while eating vegan definitely helps with that, I’ll never say no to a youth-preserving skincare product to help maintain a healthy and hydrated baby face. ?

Pamper yourself like the vegan princess or prince that you are and make your skincare goals come true with these super-luxurious cruelty-free face masks.

Sheet Masks

Yes, wearing a sheet mask looks more like a slightly terrifying Halloween costume than it does a beauty routine. But nothing can saturate your skin with soothing and smoothing goodness quite like one—so after 20 freaky minutes, you’ll be feeling like a dream. It’s all part of the fun. ?

Clays, muds, and more—oh my! Mother Nature knows best, and plus, who doesn’t love the feeling of a clay-based mask tightening and drying on their face and sucking out all the impurities? Just me? ?
