Brightening and Revitalizing Sheet Mask

If you finally make it to your hotel and look in the bathroom mirror to see a dull, tired version of your face staring back at you, you’ll want to have a brightening mask on hand. Our favorite is Shiseido’s Benefiance Pure Retinol Intensive Revitalizing Face Mask, which utilizes retinol and Cholera plant extract to help the skin’s recovery process after a dehydrating and, often, stuffy journey on various modes of transportation. The mask is split into a lower half and upper half and will deliver a richly reviving concoction to the skin, leaving it glowy, dewy, and bright.
