I might be a beauty writer, but it takes a lot for me to get excited when something lands on my desk, thanks to the neverending stream of new launches. There's really a limit to the number of new moisturisers and eye creams that the world needs.
When I first heard about new skincare brand Faace, it wasn't in a press release but on Instagram. Whenever I headed into my DMs, someone was sending me its feed followed by a large number of heart emojis and exclamation points.
As I delved deeper, I knew that I not only wanted Faace all over my face, but I also found myself adding to the hype-girl chain and telling everyone I knew about the brand. Ready for the lowdown? Faace has launched with a capsule collection of super-relatable face masks. Before you roll your eyes, I would not be writing this if they were just any face masks. The three face masks work with your skin as it navigates what life throws at it, and the masks take the guesswork out of choosing your skincare.
There are Period Faace, Tired Faace and Sweaty Faace—all designed for skin that's been disrupted by life, so you can choose the one that works for whatever your skin is looking and feeling like at the moment.
The magic doesn't end there, and this is when my excitement levels rivalled that of the Spice Girls reunion tour announcement. The brand believes that while yes face masks might be a luxury, sanitary products definitely shouldn't be. Faace has partnered with Hey Girls, so for every mask sold, one pack of period products will be donated to those facing period poverty. A cause we all need to get behind that our skin will also thank us for.
We've all been there, whether it's in the luteal phase or menstural phase of your cycle, there's a moment when your skin just doesn't want to play ball. It's stressed out and blemish-prone due to hormonal fluctuations and nothing's working. Enter Period Faace, with hyaluronic acid, clary sage, zinc and lavender to soothe and hydrate.
Picture the scene, you've been working hard and playing hard, staying up late and travelling and your skin is just as exhausted as you are. Thanks to the inclusion of caffeine, frankincense and vitamin C, this face mask is your dose of radiance, hydration and just life in general.
This mask is your go-to for cooling your skin all the way down when you need it the most. With a blend of essential oils and moisture superstar organ oil, this is like taking a big gulp of fresh air before or after any of life's sweatier and anxiety-inducing moments.
