Professional beauty treatments may be back on the cards in just a matter of days, but during lockdown many of us will have become accustomed to performing at-home skincare treatments – so much so that sales of face masks have skyrocketed over the last year.

And there's a mask for every skin concern nowadays. Whether you're tired of your skin looking dull or dry, or you just want it to look more bouncy and youthful, there's a face mask to solve it.

We had our expert panel of OK! beauty testers – plus a surprise famous face – try out these pampering skin treatments to see what magic they could perform on their skin…

For brightening:

INC.redible Cosmetics Gilt Tripper Exfoliating Sheet Mask, usually £5 here

What? This glitzy sheet mask does more than just look striking when on – it's enriched with hyaluronic acid, vitamin B5, cactus extract and aloe vera to remove dead skin cells, lock in moisture and reduce the appearance of fine lines, revealing a brighter complexion after 15 minutes.

In fact, this mask gets a VIP seal of approval – from former EastEnders actress and I'm A Celeb star Jess Plummer.

“I’m obsessed with sheet masks," Jess says. "I've only recently started incorporating them into my self-care regime – now I’m wondering what took me so long! This mask is perfect for pampering yourself at home.”

Jess likes it so much that she included it in her limited-edition OK! beauty box here, alongside her five other beauty favourites. The box, worth over £50, normally starts from just £16.50*, but you can currently get your hands on it with an extra 30% off here when you use the code TREAT30.

For damage repair:

Beauty Pie Japanfusion Bio-Ceramide Moisture Mask, buy it here for £12.26

  • How to get smoother, healthier hair in just 60 seconds with these instant-effects treatments – starting from just £4

  • Kate Middleton’s make-up artist loves The OK! beauty box and shows you how to get it from just £10.73

What? This antioxidant-laden mask promises to be a clean-up crew for dry or sun-damaged skin. Think yuzu ceramides to boost skin barrier, vitamin C to target pigmentation, a wrinkle-fighting yeast derivative and vegetable squalane to moisture bomb your face.

Tester says: "This feels lightweight and moisturising but not pore clogging. My skin felt nicely revived and hydrated afterwards. This is a great moisturising mask for all skin types (although I can’t see how it could possibly be worth the ‘non member’ £100 price tag!)."

For soothing:

Simple Ultra Calming Sheet Mask with Hemp Seed Oil, buy it here for £2.99

What? A weekly fix of hemp seed chillaxing for skin that’s stressed out. This mild-mannered mask is fragrance free and claims to replenish 16 days worth of moisturiser in a single use.

Tester says: "My skin reacts easily to retinol and acids, and I found this was a really good one to use when it needed to be instantly calmed down. The sheet isn’t the neatest fit but it’s a good option if your skin needs quick relief. It gets bonus points for being biodegradable."

For plumping:

Garnier Nutri Bomb Milky Tissue Mask Almond Milk & Hyaluronic Acid, buy it here for £2.99

  • Viral hack shows you how to apply 'perfect' winged eyeliner using a kirby grip – we put it to the test

  • Join the OK! Beauty Club now to get free products AND a chance to win one of 500 Eyeko mascaras worth £19 each

This mask contains a milky serum enriched with moisturising and plumping hyaluronic acid.

Tester says: "The mask sits a bit wrinkly on the face but it doesn’t drip or slip. The result was not so much a drink of water for the skin as a big glass of full-fat milk. My skin looked really plump, hydrated and soft with an instant glow, and areas of dry skin had disappeared."

For exfoliating:

Luneia Radiance Ritual Mask, buy it here for £40

What? This once-a-week mask is a potent mix of glycolic and salicylic acids to exfoliate and hydrate your skin, for a mini facial effect.

Tester says: "This left my skin looking smoother than it has in weeks and any blemishes I had were definitely more faded. It does make skin look instantly brighter too. Just make sure you stick to the 10 minute limit, as it’s an intensive formula."

For anti-ageing:

Nivea Q10 Power Sleeping Melt-In-Mask, buy it here for £10.99

What? Is it a mask? Is it a night cream? Well, kind of both. This concentrated dose of anti-ageing CoQ10 is designed to be slathered on as a thick layer, then massaged in and left overnight 2-3 times a week.

Tester says: "I really liked this from the very first night I used it. It was very nourishing and I thought I looked like I’d had a better night’s sleep than I had. By the time I’d used up the pot (it lasted over a month) I thought my skin looked smoother and less lined."
