There are few things in beauty that feel truly transformative — but peeling off a mask to reveal glowing skin beneath is certainly one of those things. While regular peel-off masks are great, there’s a K-beauty staple that is slowly but surely making it’s way into our American beauty regimens: rubber masks. What makes a rubber mask unique is that it starts out like any paste or gel base, and then it hardens into a thick, rubbery mask that can be peeled off the face. Below, find five rubber masks we’ll be using religiously.
While this mask isn’t as thick and rubbery as the rest, it’s worth a mention if only for its social media fame. I Dew Care’s version of the K-beauty fave comes in a metallic rubbery paste that shines as bright as a disco ball. This refreshing mask can be applied in a thin or thick layer all over the face — and satisfyingly peeled off after 15 to 20 minutes.
