Staying at home after a busy week is becoming more and more tempting, especially when it involves K-drama marathons and pampering. This weekend, why not give yourself the luxury treatment your face deserves? Yes, these products are quite steep when it comes to price, but they're worth it. Besides, first-class self-care is just the indulgence you need to greet the coming week with your head held high!

1. Fast Freshness

If you ever find yourself lacking sleep complete with dark undereyes and dull skin, turn to this brightening solution and slap it on while having your morning coffee and before doing your makeup. A cheek mask might be something you think you don't need, but don’t crack it until you try it—it brightens the undereye area and gives a rosy glow to the apples of the cheeks.

2. Hot Stone at Home

In true Estée Lauder fashion, the jar is a total dresser-topper, but what hooked us is the warming stone it comes with. Submerge it in warm water for a good minute, and while the stone heats up, apply the cream. The black diamond truffle-infused formula applies thick, but it melts when massaged onto the face with the ceramic stone, re-energizing and intensely hydrating the skin.

3. Two-Step Treat

For those with skincare regimens so long and intricate, here’s a ritualistic treatment. Start by cleansing with a mask primer, a serum-like substance that soothes flare-ups and redness with La Mer Miracle Broth and preps the skin to better absorb the mask that follows. Scoop it out with either a small spatula (it prevents germs from your hands from contaminating the pot), or the brush that comes with the set. This is a smooth yet heavy gel cream mask that is meant to be left on, but if it’s too creamy or feels too cool, feel free to wash it off and moisturize as usual.

4. While You Sleep

Fans of the famed Korean sleeping masks will love this bit of indulgence from La Prairie. All the skin-plumping and long-term firming benefits of the Skin Caviar line are extra potent in this cream, which you’re meant to sweep on with a silver brush and leave on overnight. Wake up with your dream skin: poreless and glowing.

5. Get a Lift

We’re not kidding when we say that this will give you an instant facelift! Trust a luxury Korean brand like Areum to pull this off, which is especially necessary when you have something big coming up. It also takes downtime seriously, since it requires 30 minutes to dry—but it’s worth the wait, we promise. The treatment comes in tiny vials, which must be mixed in the heart-shaped silver dish that comes with the package. Paint the clear glue-ish mask onto your face with the brush until everything’s covered, including the neck. While you’re waiting for the timer to go off, you’ll feel your skin tightening—and it’s not just the product drying. Although clear masks often peel-off, this is meant to be washed off.
