Bubble Masks: Why You Need To Lather Up

The face mask market is booming, that's for sure. With double digit growth in the sector last year and a market share estimated at £6 million by the NPD group, it seems our passion for some at-home pamper time isn't waning.

With sheet masks (translucent sheets, satured in skin-brightening essence that are applied onto the face, a la Hannibel Lecter and then peeled off) and multi-masking (using different masks at once on different areas of the face) all hitting the mainstream, skincare's certainly getting more and more weird and wonderful in the pursuit of being the hot new thing.

Next up? Bubble masks. Forget reassuringly thick clay masks and beautifully smooth hydrating masks, bubble masks are all about giving your skin that fizzy feeling. But the bubbles aren't just for show - fizzy formulations are sometimes better at driving skincare benefits into your skin than their traditional counterparts.

For example, Sarah Chapman's Instant Miracle Mask £42.00, comes as a sachet of powder that you mix with water and shake to a satisfying foam. On applying, however, it rubberises to complete second skin texture, which means all the good ingredients are locked into your skin and don't escape.

The more traditionally bubbly offerings that merely foam up are great fun, and still deliver great results fast. Click through the gallery to see our favourites...
