Not only does this skin care tool provide a smooth, even application, but you'll find you actually need less product — and make a whole lot less of a mess — when you use it. Plus, there's something kind of glamorously old-school about a perfectly-applied mask. To apply, dip the brush into the product and use upward, long and sweeping motions to create an even layer all over the face. Or try a similarly shaped large foundation brush to get the same results.
Do you ever feel like your DIY facial mask applications look more like you've been pied in the face? Not that you have to have a perfect spalike appearance to your at-home mask, but if there's a cleaner, neater way to get it on, then why not? A few years ago, an esthetician friend gave me a facial mask brush, and I cannot sing its praises enough.
