Lavelier Reviews: 7 Face Masks to Hydrate, Smooth, and Brighten Your Skin

Unless you already have one in your skincare routine, figuring out exactly what a masque does can be confusing. A matter that can puzzle even longtime beauty enthusiasts, the confusion surrounding masques stems from how versatile these skincare products are. Like serums and essences, masques are something of a customizable elixir for the skin: optional, yet extremely beneficial if chosen carefully. 

So, let’s set the record straight: what do masques do anyway, and why are they worth having in a skincare routine?

Masques — sometimes called masks — are the extra mile that can take your skincare regimen from good to great. Able to simultaneously pamper and remedy the skin, masques are specialized treatments that can reduce excess oil, moisturize, boost hydration, soften, brighten, or soothe, depending on their form and ingredient lists.

Here at Lavelier, masques happen to be among our best-selling skincare solutions. Below, we break down seven of our face masques — rich, nourishing, and proven effective by several Lavelier reviews.

The Three Kinds of Masques

Before we dive into our wide range of masques, it’s important that we introduce the three main categories that divide the masques that online Lavelier reviews rave about. Masques typically take on three common forms:

The first is the sheet mask. Sheet masks are usually individually packaged sheets soaked in potent serums, designed to be used for 10 to 15-minute intervals. The sheets can be made out of a variety of materials:

  • Fabric. The first sheet mask format that rose to popularity, fabric masks are still the most widely available masks today. Cotton, cotton wool, rayon, and microfiber are among the many fabric mask materials on the market.
  • Biocellulose, a natural, ultra-thin fiber. Because this material is 100% soluble, it makes for a more environmentally friendly option than fabric masks.
  • Hydrogel. Unlike fabric masks, hydrogel masks fit the face more snugly, adapting to fit the face’s curves and contours. 

Wash-off masks are an alternative to sheet masks that produce minimal waste. Typically packaged in jars or tubes, wash-off masks are formulated to be rinsed off after a prescribed period of time. This makes them the ideal way to introduce sebum-minimizing ingredients like kaolin, as these are usually only kept on the skin for a few minutes.

Next are leave-on masks. These do not need to be washed off after a 10 or 15-minute window. Instead, they function like moisturizers, formulated to seep into the skin over the course of a few hours. Just like night creams, leave-on masks work best with dry skin types, delivering a powerful punch of moisture.

Lavelier’s Magic Masque Ingredient

Seaweed underwater

There is one common thread present across all the masks we offer here at Lavelier: our signature ingredient, Red Coral Seaweed. A natural exfoliator, Red Coral Seaweed gently aids the skin in shedding dead skin cells. This gives way to newer, younger, and brighter-looking skin, delivering results worthy of positive Lavelier reviews.

Beyond exfoliation, Red Coral Seaweed is also abundant in beneficial elements that keep the skin radiant and healthy. One of these is calcium. While most of us recognize calcium as an element that contributes to bone health, in skincare, it helps regulate the lipid barrier that protects the skin against external stressors. Keeping this barrier in good condition ensures that our skin holds on to its hydration for longer.

Discover some of Lavelier’s best-selling masques — all infused with Red Coral Seaweed — below:

Purifying Pre-Masque

Purifying Pre-Masque

A preparatory step, the Lavelier Purifying Pre-Masque gets the skin ready for a prime masking experience. While this pre-masque is formulated to work in tandem with Lavelier’s Magnetic MicroLift Masque, it can be used before any of the masques on this list.

In addition to Red Coral Seaweed, this masque is infused with three key ingredients:

  • Sweet Almond Oil, a non-comedogenic hydrator. A non-greasy wonder ingredient suitable for all skin types, Sweet Almond Oil can help reduce irritation, UV damage, and visible marks. One study from 2017 reported visible improvement in the decrease and spread of dryness, in combination with Aloe Vera, in the form of a body cream.
  • Vitamin E. Unlike Vitamins A and E, which actively brighten and smoothen, Vitamin E is a silent worker. As an antioxidant, it neutralizes free radicals and protects the skin. It also accelerates skin healing, contributes to skin moisture, and keeps the skin’s lipids in check. 
  • Seaweed Extract. A multitasking ingredient, Seaweed helps regulate oil production, exfoliate dead skin cells, brighten dull skin, and moisturize dry skin. It’s also an incredibly hydrating ingredient.

Altogether, these ingredients form a thick gel-like consistency that easily melts into the skin. Somewhere in between a cleanser and a masque, the Lavelier Purifying Pre-Masque picks up any remaining dirt and debris, dialing the skin back to a clean canvas ready to soak up your masque of choice. 

To use, apply the product onto the skin, massaging until the gel turns into a smooth oil. Take a small amount of water and massage it into the skin in circular motions, allowing the oil to form a rich lather. After one minute, rinse the product off and pat the face dry. Then, follow up with your favorite Lavelier masque.

Magnetic MicroLift Masque

Magnetic mask

An innovative spin on the wash-off mask, Lavelier’s Magnetic MicroLift Masque employs the use of a mini magnet to lift the product (as well as skin impurities) from the face in an easy, mess-free manner. However, this magnetic trick is hardly the best thing about this masque:

The Lavelier Magnetic MicroLift Masque softens and rejuvenates the skin, allowing you to recreate a spa experience from the comfort of home. The product contains soothing Rosemary Leaf Extract, moisturizing Sunflower Seed Oil, and Cannabis Sativa Oil to deeply deliver moisture and nourish the skin. Thanks to the variety of oils in this product’s formulation, it is also rich in fatty acids that help keep the skin plump and youthful. This makes it an ideal step to add in your weekly anti-aging regimen. 

To use the Lavelier Magnetic MicroLift Masque, use a brush, spatula, or clean fingers to apply a thin layer of product onto cleansed skin. Allow the masque to settle for a few minutes, then insert the enclosed magnet into a sachet. Hover it close to the skin, picking up the solidified masque. Massage any remaining oils into the skin and top it off with your choice of serum and moisturizer. 

Mineral Allure Transforming Masque

Mineral Allure Masque

Another innovative product that has earned positive Lavelier reviews is the Mineral Allure Transforming Masque. A one-of-a-kind formula, this product visibly transforms before your eyes, turning from a pristine white color to a lush shade of gold.

But what exactly is in the Mineral Allure Transforming Masque’s formula that makes it so special?

This mask primarily brightens the skin, combatting dullness to reveal more even and radiant skin. It is also great for removing excess sebum, making it a great match for oily and acne-prone skin types.

Some of the oil-regulating ingredients in the Mineral Allure Transforming Masque include:

  • Kaolin. While it is used as a drying agent, Kaolin is recognized as a skin-safe and gentle clay. It is commonly used in wash-off clay masks due to its ability to bind sebum, remove impurities, and mattify the skin. It’s a favorite among those looking to detoxify.
  • Bentonite. Named after Fort Benton in Wyoming, Bentonite is a kind of clay that is generated from volcanic ash. As a skincare ingredient, it helps rid the skin of toxins and excess oil.
  • Seaweed Extract. A 2011 study reported that seaweed has the ability to decrease the bacteria that contributes to the formation of acne.

Want in on the metamorphic masque approved by Lavelier reviews? To use the Mineral Allure Transforming Masque, massage a generous amount of product onto the skin using a brush, spatula, or clean fingers. Work the product into the skin in circular motions until the white formula has turned to a shade of gold. Let the product settle on the skin for ten minutes before washing it off. Then, continue on with the rest of your skincare routine. We would recommend applying a serum and then a cream after this masque.

Coral Luminous Masque

The Coral Luminous Masque from Lavelier

Looking for a brightening masque proven effective by Lavelier reviews, but prefer something quick and rinse-free? The Coral Luminous Masque might just be up your alley.

Unlike the other masques on this list, the Coral Luminous Masque from Lavelier is a gel sheet mask set that can be worn and removed with utmost convenience. Each set comes with 14 full face masks and 14 eye masks, allowing you to target pesky dark circles or cover more ground to suit your unique needs.

Unlike your run-of-the-mill sheet mask, the Coral Luminous Masque feels lush and luxurious. Here are some of its key ocean-derived ingredients:

  • Chitosan
  • Algae Extract
  • Hydrolyzed Red Coral Extract

Together with hydrating Hyaluronic Acid and anti-inflammatory Lavender Oil, this masque softens the skin and reveals a brighter, healthier-looking complexion in just 15 minutes. Even better, there are enough masks in this box to cover you for a year!

HydroTherm Intense Masque

Just like the body becomes vulnerable when overworked, the skin can also become prone to fatigue. Skin fatigue can be caused by a multitude of factors, such as pollution, UV damage, or external stressors. Likewise, it can manifest in a number of ways: blemishes, wrinkles, lines, or overall dullness. Chances are, you don’t want to be dealing with any of that.

Lavelier’s skin stress antidote? The HydroTherm Intense Masque, which utilizes a heat-activated clay formula to energize and detoxify the skin. While Kaolin is a popular ingredient for drawing out deep-seated dirt and simultaneously extracting excess sebum, it also has the propensity to dry out the skin. This is why we’ve also included aloe vera in our HydroTherm Intense Masque.

Once regarded as the universal panacea and a plant of immortality, Aloe Vera has been used across cultures as a health and medicinal cure for centuries. Filled with skin-nourishing properties, the Aloe Vera plant contains up to 75 active constituents including vitamins, enzymes, and amino acids. In terms of benefits, topically applied Aloe Vera can:

To use the HydroTherm Intense Masque, apply the product directly to cleansed, damp skin. You may opt to add a couple of drops of Lavelier’s HydroTherm Sauna Serum in as you massage the product into your skin to further intensify its warming effects. After five to ten minutes, rinse the mask off with cool water. Follow up with a face cream. Repeat on a monthly basis for optimal results.

Coralline Collagen Boosting Masque

Lavelier Coralline Collagen Mask

While there isn’t much we can do to stop getting older, there are little ways to keep the visible signs of aging from showing through on our faces. One such way is the Coralline Collagen Boosting Masque from Lavelier.

A preventive masque that stops wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging in their tracks, the Coralline Collagen Boosting Masque features a blend of popular anti-aging ingredients like:

  • Jojoba Seed Oil
  • Honey
  • Gingko Biloba Extract
  • Retinyl Palmitate

In addition to these ingredients, this masque also features a standout ingredient: Soluble Collagen. Collagen is a protein in the human body that keeps the skin plump and bouncy. However, the Collagen we naturally produce dwindles with time — and along with it, our skin’s elasticity. While applying Collagen topically cannot induce Collagen production, it can go a long way in boosting the skin’s moisture levels, which can help minimize the appearance of premature signs of aging.

Once a week, massage a small amount of the Coralline Collagen Boosting Masque on to the skin in circular motions. Leave the mask on for 10 minutes then rinse off with cool water. Follow up with your favorite Lavelier face cream.

Seagrass Cymosilk Masque

Lavelier reviews the Cymosilk Masque

The last masque on this list is another anti-aging elixir, but arguably one of the brand’s best. Meet the ​​Seagrass Cymosilk Masque, a best-seller on the receiving end of positive Lavelier reviews. It’s an overnight mask, making it ideal for providing intense nourishment. This also means minimal effort!

Take a glance at the ingredient list and you’ll find an extensive list of antioxidant-rich fruit extracts, including Acai Berry, Goji, Maqui, Mangosteen, Pomegranate, and Noni, among others. They neutralize free radicals and prevent skin damage. However, some of these ingredients have other skin-boosting properties, like:

This extract-rich formula is made even more effective with moisturizing agents like Squalane, Sodium Hyaluronate, and Aloe Leaf Extract. As dry skin can often lead to lines, wrinkles, and irritation, this masque helps you infuse more moisturizing ingredients into your regimen with minimal additional steps. What’s not to love?!

To use the Seagrass Cymosilk Masque, simply dispense a small amount of product and apply it directly onto your skin. Allow the product to sink into your skin for a few minutes before following up with a night cream.

The Lavelier reviews have spoken: face masques are the way to go for boosted brightness, amped-up hydration, and smoother skin texture. Discover more ways to improve your current skincare rotation with Lavelier’s Red Coral Seaweed-infused beauty innovations.
