Hi there guys, it's so nice to have you back here at AZ! I was inspired to write this today because lately, I've been noticing my skin feeling that little bit more irritated and stressed. I normally have quite sensitive skin but it seems to have taken it a biiittt too far this time! So, I turned to the beauty and skincare world for some tips. What conclusion did I come to? Gel face masks! Here's the scoop: Gel masks are super cooling, hydrating and soothing on the skin and while generally, they're good for all skin types, they are particularly good when it comes to skin that's a little bit irritated and dry. Perfect for some intensive at-home skin therapy! So, I thought I'd share some of our favourite gel face masks from the team here at AZ! So, let's dive in.

To start us off, it's the ODACITÉ - Bioactive Rose Gommage.

This luxurious 2-in-1 gel can be used both as a mask or a gommage (this is a term borrowed from the French language and means to ‘erase’, ooh la la!). The pack comes with a handy little facial brush that allows you to delicately and evenly apply a thin layer of the gel all over the face, neck & décolleté. After letting it dry, use warm water to rinse off and voila!
