Bored with your Skin Care Routine? Try These 5 Weird Face Masks

22 September 2017 | MJ Mendoza

For any skin care enthusiast, nothing is more refreshing than coming home after a hard day at work and just starting with your skin care routine. However, after a few months, it tends to get a little boring and tedious. The best way to spice up your skin care routine is to incorporate new products and what better way to do it than a new face mask!

Face masks are skin care products that are applied to the skin in the form of a gel, cream or sheet mask and are left on the skin for longer periods of time ranging from 5 to 20 minutes. It can be an additional source of moisture or can provide treatments that can help with any skin condition such as acne, oily, dry or aging skin. While many argue the effectiveness of face masks, it is a great way to spice up your skin care routine.

If you want to be more adventurous with your skin care, ditch those "normal" face masks and try out these weird yet amazing products.

Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask

From beauty gurus on Youtube to Instagram, this product is everywhere, and maybe you should try it yourself. What makes this face masks so weird and quirky is that it bubbles up after a few minutes! Like mentos on cola, you can instantly feel the bubbling on your skin! This face mask contains green tea, pomegranate and charcoal powder extract that cleanses, hydrates, and soothes your skin.

Tony Moly Intense Care Snail Hydro-Gel Mask

On first glance, you might think that this is just a normal face mask with essence but as the name of the product suggests, it contains snail extract. No, no actual snails are harmed in the making of this face mask but something slimier is at play. Snail mucus aka the trail of slimy fluid they leave behind is the main ingredient of this face mask. It claims to have anti-aging properties and aims to hydrate, soften, and repair skin. Yikes!

Hanacure Tightening Face Mask (Zombie Face Mask)

If you want to become a zombie without the commitments and, best of all, great skin, then this face mask is a must try. The face mask is actually a set of three containing a gelling solution, a lifting serum, and a brush that you will use to apply the product. What makes this face mask so interesting is the way it dries up on your face. It tightens the skin and leaves a sort of "dried" flakes on your face and in some cases, it looks horrifying, like a real zombie.

Dr. Brandt Magnetight Magnetic Face Mask

Like the bubble mask, you've also seen this quirky face mask floating around Youtube and Instagram. Unlike all the face mask on this list, Dr. Brandt Magnetight Magnetic Face Mask is infused with real iron that helps extract deep-seated dirt and impurities plus anti-aging ingredients to renew and rejuvenate your skin cells. Instead of peeling or washing off the product a few minutes after application, this face mask uses a magnet to instantly zap dirt and dead skin cells! It looks like something out of a futuristic sci-fi movie!

Mediheal Horse Oil Proaine Mask

Like the snail face mask, no horses were harmed in the making of this product. As what the name suggests, it contains horse oil which is a byproduct of horse fat. In case you don't know horse meat is quite popular in countries like Japan, Belgium, Kazakhstan, and Italy. So, instead of throwing it all away, it is made into horse oil. This face mask contains unsaturated fatty acids and ceramide which increases protein absorption on the skin which enhances elasticity, and vitality. While it sounds gruesome to put horse fat on your face, it's actually not the worse active ingredient to ever appear on a face mask or any skin care product for that matter.

A face mask is a great skin care product that you should use every once in a while. It provides additional hydration and treatments that could be beneficial to your skin. Spice up your skin care routine with the best face masks below.
