However, since we all have different skin types and needs, face masks have been becoming increasingly popular over the past few years and there is so much choice. It can be a little overwhelming.

So to save you all the research and confusion when in-store (now that we enter them again) we decided to speak to our You Beauty podcast family to hear their favourites.

Here are 22 women sharing their absolute favourite face mask and why.

Garnier SkinActive Hydra Bomb Tissue Face Mask Sakura, $5.99.

"I love the Garnier Hydra Bomb Face Mask with Sakura! The smell is sooo good and it’s the instant glow up we all need." - Giulia.

Aceology Detoxifying Treatment Mask, $69.

I'm not usually a 'detoxifying mask' kind of person, but this one is effective while being gentle enough for anyone to use. It uses charcoal and salicylic acid (a BHA that can get right into your pores) to draw out any impurities lurking. You pop a layer on and peel off 30 mins later - I have dry skin so only use on my nose and chin where congestion builds up." - Amy.

Tonymoly Gold 24K Snail Gel Mask SheetGold 24K Snail Gel Mask Sheet, $12.

"My skin is dry, sensitive and quite reactive to new products including sheet masks. The only mask that works for me is Tonymoly Intense Care Gold 24k Snail Hydrogel Mask. I call it a magic mask. My redness or flaky skin is gone after I use it. It’s my holy grail for sure." - Erna.

The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask, $35.

"Mine is The Body Shop Charcoal Mask! It's a clay mask that helps reduce blackheads and excess oil. I pop it on the areas that need a bit of help, leave it for 10 minutes till it dries and then add some water to scrub it all in. I can honestly swear that once I remove it, my skin feels the softest it's ever felt. Oh, and my boyfriend loves it too." - Charlie.

Sukin Hydration Deeply Hydrating Sheet Mask, $8.99.

"This is just a great, affordable, hydrating sheet mask that comes with so much serum-y goodness, it practically spat it at me when I opened the packet. My skin looks juicy and well-nourished after leaving this on for 20-30 mins. Bonus points: pop it in the fridge before using." - Amy.

Andalou Naturals Pumpkin Honey Glycolic Mask, $24.99.

"I do adore the Andalou Pumpkin Honey Glycolic Mask, it always leaves my face feeling so smooth and soft! Warning though, it does tingle, people with sensitive skin might struggle." - Mads.

Sukin Purely Ageless Intensive Firming Sheet Mask, $8.95.

"I also love the intensive firming Sukin sheet mask. I really notice a difference after using it in how firm my face looks, I love using it as part of my routine before going out. You get so much extra serum in the pouch too, so you can really massage it into your skin for added benefit." - Mads.

Rationale Immunologist Mask, $202.

"Rationale Immunologist Mask. It's the equivalent of a small house deposit but holey moley does it make you glow." - Liberty.

TATCHA Luminous Dewy Skin Mask, $19.

"This is a spendy but the Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mask - it’s perfect before a special event, leaves my skin so hydrated, plump and just feels amazing! And it has the wonderful Kelly McCarren’s backing as well (fairly sure she recommended it in the podcast at some point)." - Lauren.

Patchology Get Dewy With It Mask, $8.

"My vote is for the Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask if I am feeling dry or the Clear Improvement if I'm breaking out a little. I prefer these to sheet masks generally which feel slimy and gross to me!" - Brega.

"I’ve just bought the Origins trio and I love the Charcoal Honey Mask followed by the Drink Up as my night cream. So much more value than a sheet mask!" - Fiona.

"So basically this is my favourite face mask ever because it's multi-purpose. When I'm super dry I'll drench my face in it and leave it overnight. I also use it as a daily night cream (it's really thick so great for the winter months) and as a primer underneath foundation. Oh and it's fragrance free, so it's perfect for sensitive skin." - Charlotte.
