Alba Botanica® Fast Fix Sheet Masks, $4 each

It’s not a girls’ night in without a sheet mask. With this botanically infused line, she’ll have four options to choose from, whatever her skin type.

Got discoloration? Grapefruit Even Tone helps diminish shadows, soothe redness, and vanish visible pores with a one-two punch of charcoal and turmeric. Zap zits with lemon balm and salicylic acid by using the Papaya Anti-Acne mask, or add serious moisture with coconut water, juicy cucumbers, and calming chamomile in Coconut Water Hydrate. Lastly, the invigorating cocoa and caffeine in the Camu Camu Anti-Wrinkle mask aid in firming skin for a total tone and refresh. Mask night, covered.
