Lunar new year is a period of reunions, joy, and immense activity. And what with all that visitations, you need a facial treatment that’s quick, efficacious, while giving you that radiant glow so you can put your best face forward.

Whether it is a 15 minute or overnight treatment you seek, these masks will do the work and will have you looking like you’ve just undergone a long facial, with none of that comedown. 

Ahead, the best masks to soothe, hydrate, and restore for a luminous glow over this Chinese New Year weekend.

Charlotte Tilbury

Charlotte Tilbury Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask, $29.60/pc

Unlike other sheet masks, this mask is, as its name suggests, completely dry to the touch. What this means is that it doesn’t harbour bacteria, you can use it to maximum capacity (up to 3 times), and you get none of that sticky residue after. It contains a potent concoction of brightening and hydrating ingredients including niacinamide, stem cell matrix, oils and butters that turns to a liquid from the warmth of your skin, straight to the third layer of your epidermis for a serious glow that lasts through several days -- perfect for the long Chinese New Year weekend.

SK-II

This is a cult beauty product for a reason - the SK-II Whitening Source Derm Revival mask is one of the most effective brightening masks out there.

No time for a 15 minute mask? Try this overnight one for good measure.

DR.JART+

What we love about this sheet mask is its soft microfiber that fits perfectly into the contours of your face to ensure all of that silky, hydrating goodness comfortably and effectively absorbs into your skin. The brightening mask contains a powerful blend of antioxidants, glutathione and niacinamide to visibly brighten skin and reduce hyperpigmentation, so you can get amazingly glowy, supple skin.
