Is there an easier way to feel pampered than by simply slicking on a good face mask at the end of the day?
We highly doubt it. Face masks have become the foundation of every good skincare regime. Soaked in rich vitamins and healthy ingredients, as well as feeling cool and refreshing after a day out in the humidity — putting on a face mask is like letting your face bathe in a smoothie bowl.

Cle de Peau
Cle de Peau’s Illuminating Concentrate is possibly one of the most beloved and effective face masks in Bangkok. With its 3-part application, it takes just a little bit more effort than your standard rip-out-the-bag face masks, but trust us, it’s well worth the extra few minutes. This skincare set will give your complexion moisture, resilience, and an even texture after just the first treatment.

Inspired by the world-renowned skin spas of Iceland, the Icelandic brand Skyn is replicates the innovation, ingredients, and conditions of Arctic treatments. Using an icy cooling effect, the mask is super effective at combating puffiness and bloat.

Being ‘Made in Japan’ might be all you need to know about the cult beauty brand Tatcha, but their amazing face masks deserve even more commendations. The Luminous Dewy Skin mask is a silky soft, skin-fitting sheet mask that deeply delivers a healthy drink of ultra-hydrating botanical oils and extracts for a dewy glow in just one use. One of our favourite Japanese face masks in Bangkok.

Full of good microbes that fight off blemish-causing bacteria and a marshmallow soft texture that leaves your skin bouncy and fresh, this Saturday Skin mask is, in fact, a real treat for every day of the week. But yes, it’s also probably one of the cutest face masks in Bangkok.
A touch of Asian medicine is always a good sign when it comes to natural skincare. And when it comes to looking for it in face masks in Bangkok, you’ll have very little trouble.

This sheet mask is soaked in this herbal blend and also assists in strengthening dermal fibres where wrinkles begin. There’s a good reason why Asian skin is famous for its agelessness — let this face mask be an explanation.
