The Best Face Masks For Sensitive Skin
Those of us with sensitive skin know that slapping on a spontaneous face mask is simply a no-go.
Whilst those glitter infused, peel-off formulas that smell like candy-floss are tempting, we know our skin will undoubtedly pay the price. So, we reach for that bland old tub of E45 once more and are left feeling nothing but totally unsatisfied with our skin care routine.
It doesn't have to all be doom and gloom, though. There are indulgent options out there, you just have to look in the right place. The right place being *drum roll* Cosmetify.
Keep scrolling as we round up the best face masks for sensitive skin, and don't forget to visit our guide to face masks if there's anything more you want to know.
REN is one of our favourites at Cosmetify HQ and you’ll soon understand why. This rescue mask is formulated without parabens (always good for irritable skin) but still packs a punch when it comes to soothing and re-hydrating, making it one of the best face masks for sensitive skin.
This luxurious treatment has been specially designed to rescue sensitive, stressed and ageing complexions. Boasting a regenerative blend of essential vitamins, panthenol, liquorice, burdock and oat kernel, it repairs damaged, dull and fatiguing skin without causing irritation and, instead, leaves you with a radiant, restored complexion.
Discover intensive skin nourishing care with the Dr. Hauschka Hydrating Cream Mask.

The rich, comforting cream texture feels good on dry, tired and sensitive skin, making it a must-have for your routine.
Avene has taken into consideration all levels of sensitivity, including hypersensitive skin, and formulated the ultimate face mask.

Sensitive skin types can often fall victim to inflammation. But this SOS Comfort Nourishing Balm Mask from Clarins is here to correct all of that. With nourishing wild mango butter powering the formula, the look and feel of your skin is instantly hydrated and soothed. No more irritation or redness, just soft, comfortable and rejuvenated skin.
We adore the Zoeva Flower Infused Gel Mask for its ability to hydrate and tone without upsetting skin. Infused with caffeine and real rose flower petals, it’s all you need for a smooth, soft and calmed complexion.
Sensitive skin doesn't just mean redness and irritation, it can also mean breakouts. This sheet mask from Klairs utilises super calming ingredients, such as tea tree leaf oil and bark extract, in order to control excess sebum and inflammation that lead to spots and pimples.

The formula is bursting with soothing botanical extracts, like honey, jasmine, shea butter and evening primrose oil, which work together to replenish, relieve and protect your complexion.
We always turn to Decléor when our skin is throwing a wobbly, as they utilise natural, aromatherapy-based ingredients which help soothe and smooth all types of complexions.
This multi-tasking formulation is all you need to put your skin back on track as it replenishes and hydrates. It's perfect for skin types prone to redness, tightness and sensitivity.
