Nothing feels quite as relaxing sometimes as kicking back and lounging while a nourishing face mask gets to work on your stressed-out complexion. And with some of our diary time having recently freed-up, we're indulging in some hard-earned pampering and have found ourselves masking more than ever before. With a helping hand from a cooling sheet mask, a sumptuous cream or clarifying clays, there are very few skin issues that won't benefit from the luxury of a mask.
But just because using a face mask feels like an at-home luxury, doesn't mean it's a ritual that has to come with a luxury price tag. In fact, there's a whole bunch of face masks out there that give high-end results for a fraction of the price. Sure, some of the more expensive masks will house more potent, efficacious ingredients, but if you're just looking to give your skin a little treat, there's no need to spend the big bucks.
Whether you suffer from blocked pores and oiliness, dryness and sensitivity or you simply want to take a timeout, keep scrolling for all of the purse-friendly face masks your complexion will thank you for using.
Unlike any standard blackhead-busting clay mask, this stuff is jam-packed with serious ingredients. With salicylic acid to slough away at pore-clogging dead skin cells and regulatory niacin, this formula is good enough to compete with others 10 times the price.
