Shopping bag: facial sheet masks

We recently found the perfect warm-weather pick-me-up for our skin: the quirkily named "I Need a Quickie" facial sheet masks from a company called myfaceworks. Simply unfold a premoistened cloth (with holes cut out for eyes, nose and mouth), place it on your face and relax for a few minutes. Voila! When you peel it off, skin feels hydrated, smoothed and refreshed, thanks to the infusion of cucumber, algae and grape extracts.

The company recommends using these to freshen skin before makeup application, but we enjoyed using them at night before going to bed. They'd be a godsend after a long flight and would be easy to pack in a carry-on bag. Keep them in the fridge for an extra burst of cool relief.

A box of six facial masks is $55;
