The £14 anti-ageing face mask that really works – as voted by you

The Real Beauty Awards this year sent out over 150 anti-aging skin care products from 80 beauty brands to be tested and checked for a month by real women. The tests are in, and these are the goods that do what they claim to actually do.

Face masks are booming, not least due to their appeal to Instagram.

But instead of gimmicks that look cute in a selfie, we needed items that made a real difference.

These masks were divided into two categories by the Real Beauty Awards–traditional masks in a tube or pot and sheet masks–and were delighted to find facial-worthy effects across both.

Sanctuary Spa 1 Minute Daily Glow Mask, £11.99

Sixty seconds to better skin? You bet.

There wasn’t a tester who wasn’t going to use this flash fix again, and we had rave skin reviews that looked shiny, silky, smooth, youthful and beautiful.

“I love the immediate feeling of my skin. I used it just before bed a few times, and in the morning my skin felt refreshed and plumpy. The smoothness of my skin has increased. My wife said that my skin is much smoother than normal. I tend to agree with that. Since applying a mask, I can’t stop scratching my hair.” Buibas, London.

Nivea Q10 Power Sleeping Melt-In-Mask, £8.79

A combination is left overnight between a mask and cream, and testers thought it worth waiting for tests as good as these for eight hours.

“There was a definite improvement. Colleagues asked if I’d had Botox.”  Tracey, West Midlands.

Sanctuary Spa Nourishing Rose Petal Hydrogel Mask, £7.50 each

Sanctuary Spa knows about face masks for one or two things. The sheet mask was a hit with testers who said it gave them a feel-good factor as well as scooping the top slot for cream face masks.

“I was able to go out without using foundation for the first time in years. I wasn’t expecting such incredible results.” Kelly Knight, Devon.
