    4. Lush's Cup O' Coffee, a vegan, cruelty-free face mask made with bits of ground coffee that will exfoliate and energize your skin, leaving you awakened and glowing.

    5. Sunday Riley's U.F.O. Ultra Clarifying Face Oil, which is formulated with 1.5% salicylic acid, tea tree oil, and black cumin seed oil to clear acne breakouts and support pore health overall.

    6. Eve Lom's Rescue Mask, which contains kaolin in its clay formula and works to get rid of excess oil and unclog pores.

    BRB, gotta eat this pizza while my mask dries down.

    7. Sisley's Deeply Purifying Mask, a creamy white clay formula with D-panthenol, which purifies the skin with results you can legit see the next day.
