The multi-masking trend certainly isn’t going anywhere soon and for once it’s a trend that I can get on board with! As somebody who struggles with combination skin, I’ve always struggled to find that ‘do it all’ face mask. The idea behind multi-masking is that you don’t need that one hero product, but you can actually mix two or three together for that perfect pamper experience.
My skin has a really oily t-zone that is prone to blemishes, redness and blackheads. Whereas my cheeks and the skin under my eyes are really quite dry and lacking in moisture. So it makes sense to mix and match the facemasks I use on my skin.
I’ve recently been testing a full multi-masking routine, which consists of four different products. Whilst I find it a bit OTT to slaver my face in four masks in one go, I’ve really been enjoying taking a two by two approach and alternating them throughout the week.
Multi-Masking – Skyn ICELAND Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels
First of all let’s start under eyes and talk about a brand that I’ve seen all over the bloggersphere recently. Skyn ICELAND create a whole host of different masks, including the Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels. They come in a pack of eight pairs, with each pair packed in a handy pouch. You simply undo the pouch, peel off the pack of the eye gel and pop them under the eyes. What I love about these Eye Gels is that once they are under the eyes, they don’t move! Meaning that whether you need to get on with your housework, or fancy 10 minutes of R&R, they don’t start falling down your face. They leave your under eyes feeling cool and moisturised.

Multi-Masking Masque Bar Luminizing Charcoal Peel Off Mask
I’ve been pairing the Skyn ICELAND mask with the Masque Bar Luminizing Charcoal Peel Off Mask. Now, let me start by saying that peel off masks are not my favourite products, I much prefer something I can wash off. However, I’ve been persevering and applying this mask on my T-Zone – I take it on my forehead, down my nose and along my chin. It’s a bit sticky, so it takes a little bit of work but it’s a true detoxifying mask. Find it here
Multi-Masking – Skyn ICELAND Plumping Lip Gels with the Caudalie Moisturising Mask
For my second duo, I’ve been pairing the Skyn ICELAND Plumping Lip Gels with the Caudalie Moisturising Mask. Much like the Eye Gels, the Plumping Lip Gels come in a pack of five gels, with each mask coming in its own little pouch. Simply unpeel the mask and pop it on your lips for 10 minutes. When the time is up it leaves your lips feeling healthy, hydrated and a little plumper.
Multi-Masking – Caudalie Moisturising Mask
Finally we have the Caudalie Moisturising Mask, which as the name suggests, is one to apply on all the dry areas on your face. This mask comes in a handy tube, so I just squeeze it onto the back of my hand and apply it with a brush. This mask has more of a moisturiser texture; it’s actually similar to the Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask. Caudalie recommend applying a thick layer onto the skin, leaving it for 15 minutes and then rinsing off the excess. Alternatively, you could apply it and leave it on overnight, or apply on a long haul flight to protect your skin from drying out. Find the Caudalie Mask here
I’d love to know your thoughts on the multi-masking trend? It’s such a simple idea, but it’s one that I’m really loving so far!
