After being told for years that we need to have a complete skincare regimen, plenty of us have amassed a full lineup of morning and evening products. That's especially true for those of us who wear makeup and need to make sure every bit of it comes off as easily as it went on. But some skincare fans have found a loophole between the two and are so in love with this honey-infused hydrating face mask that they're "ditching foundation" altogether.

The Oak Essentials Restorative Mask is made with hydrating and anti-inflammatory organic honey (which the brand points out is a natural humectant, or something that keeps things moist) and free radical-blocking avocado oil, which is rich in vitamin C, too. The mask also has sea buckthorn fruit oil, which has vitamins C and E, is rich in omega-7 for collagen reproduction, and has beta carotene, an "antioxidant powerhouse" that naturally helps slow skin's aging process. Oak Essentials says that the mask is "made simply and without compromise" and that these ingredients are cruelty-free, non-GMO, and organic. Plus, it's formulated without synthetic fragrances, silicones, colorants, sulfates, phthalates, parabens, petrolatum, mineral oil, and nanoparticles to ensure a high-quality product.


To buy: $68;

Since the mask doesn't include any harsh ingredients, it's safe to simply wipe off with a damp cloth after allowing it to sink into your skin for about 15 minutes, and it can be used as often as you'd like. Some shoppers who say they deal with skin conditions like rosacea mentioned in their reviews that they leave it on longer when their skin is feeling especially sensitive because it "instantly soothes, calms, and hydrates." "I have reordered and highly recommend."

Another shopper added that they see "results right away" from this mask and are "getting a lot of compliments" on their skin, so they're buying more jars of this mask to always have on-hand. "I would buy a vat of this mask if I could," they wrote.

Hydrate and nourish your skin back to its natural glow by ordering the Oak Essentials Restorative Mask today.
