6 Budget Friendly Masks

 

Face masks are a great way to brighten, tighten, detoxify, exfoliate, or moisturize your skin in a flash. And the only thing better than all of those benefits is not leaving a huge dent in your bank account. You’re welcome.

Masks are also a great way to ensure you’re getting a boost of whatever your skin is craving at the end of a long week. Personally, I like to do a moisturizing mask, like this one, in the middle of the week and a detoxifying mask, like this one, on Sunday nights.

After testing beauty products for the last 15 years or so, I discovered that my skin is extremely sensitive to certain products, masks in particular. I’m not sure if there’s a more potent ingredient or it’s the simple fact that the concoction stays on your face longer than a wash – regardless – I’m working with sensitive skin over here. Not only are these 6 masks super gentle on sensitive skin, they’re budget friendly and (kicker) they actually work.

 

Clinique Charcoal Mask

One of my the many charcoal masks in my routine. There’s nothing I love more than a good detoxifying mask. This one leaves you feeling clean and refreshed and is not over-drying.

Tula Exfoliating Mask with Vitamin E

Never has my skin felt more refreshed after a mask treatment. It’s an amazing exfoliator however, it does leave my sensitive skin a little irritated. I power through since the results are worth the little bit of redness.

Clinique Brightening Moisture Mask

I use this mask once a week as it’s the only one I’ve found that locks in the amount of moisture I need to keep my skin feeling hydrated throughout the week.

L’Oreal Clay Detox Mask

Another great detox mask but you can swipe this one from your corner drugstore. I honestly couldn’t believe the results I got from a $12 mask so I stocked up via Amazon and got 12. Overkill? Maybe. But I couldn’t run the risk of my local Walgreens running out.

Pure Body Naturals Dead Sea Mud Mask

Hands down, this Amazon find is my favorite mask to date. I don’t typically buy beauty products from the same place I get my socks but after reading way more reviews than I should have I was suckered into buying this stuff and let. me. tell. you. it’s worth the whopping $17. It’s a detox mask while also smoothing, brightening, and evening skin tone. Yes, it evens your skin tone. Go forth and purchase.

Perricone MD Cocoa Moisture Mask

This mask is great for firming and reducing fine lines. I’ve been using it once a week for 6 weeks and I’m noticing more of a difference after each use. It also smells heavenly. Win.
