This Two-Minute Facial Mask Is Worth the Splurge

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Today's pick comes from Racked NY Associate Editor Nicola Fumo.

M-61 Fast Blast Mask, $50 at Bluemercury

I'm not typically one to spend big bucks on skincare, but the Fast Blast Mask from M-61 is the exception to the rule. The idea of an at-home mask is daunting, but this gets the deed done in two minutes flat. It goes on like a cream and builds to a foam before your skin starts to tingle (in the good way) and the fragrance reaches what can only be described as Emergen-C orange (also in a good way).

On top of all that sensory delight, skin is left brighter, tighter, and squeaky clean in a jiffy. I use it any time I need serious skin improvement in an instant, like after a long flight or before an important event. While the price tag is steep, the bottle is enormous and should fill the splurge void for some time (my bottle from January is still going strong).
