I’m a girl who loves a good pamper sesh. Sometimes taking some time to treat yourself well is necessary to relieve everyday stresses and a pamper session does just that. One of my favorite components of a pamper session is giving your skin some much-needed TLC with a face mask. Face masks can be extremely effective and beneficial for your skin. But with the hundreds of face masks on the market, how do you know which ones work the best? And which ones can you get that won’t break the bank either? Don’t worry — I’ve got you covered. I’ve done my fair share of face mask testing and I have found some mind-blowing face masks that you can pick up at your local drugstore or online for less than $10. Check out what affordable face masks are worthy of a spot in your next pamper sesh.
Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Mask
We all fall victim to the occasional breakout. It’s sad but true. Whenever I am struggling with a breakout or acne, I immediately pull out my Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Mask. I discovered this mask from KathleenLights (one of my favorite YouTubers) and the way she talked about this mask forced me to go to Amazon and purchase it for only $8.99. I do not regret this impulse purchase at all because this mask is a savior for my troublesome skin. Whenever a pimple starts showing, I mix this clay mask together with apple cider vinegar and leave it on my skin for 10 minutes. I kid you not, my pimple is gone the next morning. This face mask is a holy grail product for me and I can’t recommend it enough. If my shining recommendation isn’t enough, take a look at the over 17,300 reviews with an average of 4.5 stars. I’m sure you’ll be convinced to throw this in your Amazon cart.
Garnier Skin Active Soothing 3-In-1 Mask
If you read my Travel Essentials blog post, you know that I am head-over-heels in love with rose water. When I discovered this Garnier Soothing 3-In-1 Rose Water Mask, my rose water loves grew. This mask has a calming scent and makes my skin feel smooth and happy. This Garnier mask is even more amazing in that it is a 3-In-1 mask, so you can use this as a day moisturizer, night moisturizer, or as a hydrating face mask. I find myself reaching for this product regularly for its moisturizing and soothing properties. In my opinion, this face mask is perfect for those of you who are busy-bees and need some quick hydration. And you can’t beat the $6.99 price point.
Formula 10.0.6 Pores Be Pure Skin-Clarifying Mud Mask
I’m a sucker for a good mud mask. The feeling and texture of a mud mask makes your pamper sesh feel even more spa-like. My go-to mud mask is the Formula 10.0.6 Pores Be Pure Skin-Clarifying Mud Mask. With a fresh scent and a brightening effect on the skin, this mud mask is essential for your skincare no matter what skin type you have. The skin-clarifying mud mask leaves my skin feeling so soft and clean. That along with the $6.99 price point, you need this mud mask in your life.
L’Oreal Exfoliate & Refine Clay Mask
Since my mom worked for L’Oreal for awhile, the brand holds a special place in my heart and so do their new clay masks. My favorite of the bunch is the Exfoliate & Refine Clay Mask. This face mask features a subtle scent and makes my skin feel CLEAN. Any clogged pores don’t stand a chance when you use this face mask. After 10 minutes, this left my skin soft, supple, and fresh. Plus, I notice a difference in the size of my pores after using it. Pick it up at your local Walmart or Target for just $9.50 the next time you need your pores to do a disappearing act.
Regardless of your skin type, you will be happy with any of these affordable face masks. What face masks are you currently using? What other parts of your pamper sessions do you love? Let me know!
