Caudalie launched four facial masks recently. The Instant Detox Mask and Glycolic Peel Mask are brand new to their skincare line, while the Purifying Mask and Moisturizing Mask had a package revamp ($39 each for 75 ml/2.5 fl oz). The product comes in a squeeze tube with wooden cap. These masks can either be applied alone or mixed together to target certain issues. Another tip would be to apply the mask on your most problematic sites (such as chin, forehead or nose) rather than a complete facial spread.

These masks have NOT been tested on animals and contain NO parabenes, phenoxyethanol, or sodium sulfates.

Instant Detox Mask is a pink clay mask that draws out impurities, oils and tightens pores. Once applied a thin layer as recommended, I noticed that it dried out within 5 minutes (although the directions state that you can leave it on for up to 10 minutes). As it was drying out, it was quite noticeable where I was mostly oily (nose and forehead) as there were dark spots all over those sites. After the removal of the mask, the skin felt quite smooth and the pores looked tighter. This mask did not irritate my skin, but if you have dry skin, I would advice that you leave it on for a shorter amount of time than recommended.

Main ingredients:
- Pink clay <purifies>
- Grape marc <detoxifies and drains impurities>
- Coffee <purifies>

All ingredients: Water, Bentonite, Glycerin*, Acacia Senegal Gum*, Xanthan Gum, Benzyl Alcohol, Alcohol*, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil*, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Fruit Extract*, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil*, Sodium Citrate, Dehydroacetic Acid, Coffea Arabica (Coffee) Seed Extract*, Coffea Robusta Seed Extract*, Citric Acid*, Papain*, Cupressus Sempervirens Oil*, Salvia Sclarea (Clary) Oil*, Commiphora Myrrha Oil*, Santalum Album (Sandalwood) Oil*, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Oil*, Petroselinum Crispum (Parsley) Seed Oil*, Carbomer, 1,2-Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol, Sodium Benzoate, Lactic Acid, Potassium Sorbate, Algin, Limonene, Linalool. *Plant Origin.

Glycolic Peel Mask is a white exfoliant mask, which activates cellular renewal for fresh, bright and even skin. I have applied this mask twice a week, for two weeks, and kept it on for 10 minutes (as recommended). I also need to tell you that I am an avid user of glycolic pads daily.  While using this mask, I did refrain from using the glycolic pads, but at the end of the treatment I did not notice much a difference besides a clean canvas. 

Main ingredients: 
- Glycolic acid <cell renewal by peeling>
- Papaya <radiance>
- Viniferine <reduces dark spots and delivers radiance>

All ingredients: Water, Glycerin*, Isononyl Isononanoate, Sorbitan Stearate*, Glyceryl Stearate Se*, Glycolic Acid, Cetyl Palmitate*, Cetearyl Alcohol*, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil*, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Panthenol, Squalane*, Cetyl Alcohol*, Dimethicone, Sodium Hydroxide, Ci 77891 (Titanium Dioxide), Bisabolol*, Fragrance, Benzyl Alcohol, Polysorbate 60*, Sodium Pca*, Caprylyl Glycol, Arginine, Palmitoyl Grapevine Shoot Extract*, Tocopherol*, Carbomer, Dehydroacetic Acid, Sodium Phytate*, Papain*, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, 1,2-Hexanediol, Algin. *Plant Origin.

I thoroughly enjoyed using both of these masks. However, if you are looking to invest in just one of them, I would mostly recommend the Instant Detox Mask as I liked my skin better after its usage due its extraction power of the impurities.

Have you tried any of these yet? What are your thoughts? Any favorite masks at the moment?
