Perfect pores: 10 best facial treatment masks

Pamper your winter-ravaged face with a restoring skin saver 

We love cold, bright winter days, but our skin definitely doesn't. Chilly weather can leave complexions dry and dull, while summer's golden, glowy skin feels like a lifetime ago. But help is at hand; treatment masks will counteract most skin problems and we've trawled through pots of the stuff.

From ESPA Super Active Lift & Firm for mature faces to Aromatherapy Associates Soothing Treatment Mask for sensitive skins, we've tried them to find the pick of the best for every skin type.

Dermalogica's Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque stands out because it suits all skin types and leaves complexions looking like you've had a seriously expensive salon facial. Sensitive skins will love Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel. And for a hard-working product, the three-masks-in-one This Works No Wrinkles Time Dose is hard to beat.
