Does your skin feel dry and dull? Don’t worry. Liquid masks are here to the rescue. Think of them as levelled-up face creams.
What are liquid face masks?
As the name suggests, liquid masks have a lightweight, watery consistency that helps penetrate the skin to provide deep nourishment and give swift noticeable results. They're also very convenient to use and can be applied directly onto the skin — no separate sheets needed! You can opt for fast-acting ones that you can wash after just a few minutes or go for those that you can leave on overnight for maximum rejuvenation. Check out these 12 liquid masks that you can buy in Singapore.
