    1. An Aztec Secret Indian healing mask made with 100% calcium bentonite clay that'll work magic to deep clean your pores and help fight acne and blemishes.,

    This product is cruelty-free and formulated without additives or fragrances. There is a bit of mixing involved β€” you'll need to add some apple cider vinegar for it to do its best work. But trust us, it's worth it!

    Promising review: "I have dealt with hormonal cystic acne for years. Even after being prescribed medication to help with the acne, I would still get some breakouts around my period and occasionally throughout my cycle. This product changed everything. I use this mask every night in addition to my normal routine. I started out mixing it with water and it worked well enough but then I switched to apple cider vinegar and wow! What a huge difference this product has made for my face. If I do get a pimple here or there this helps to clear it up quickly. In conclusion, this stuff has changed my life and I will buy it until I die." β€”Elizabeth

    2. A natural mineral-infused dead sea mud mask to use as a daily acne treatment. Its job is to gently purify and clean clogged pores, while leaving your skin super soft.

    Promising review: "This is great! Leaves my face feeling smooth and my pores much smaller. Doesn’t dry out your skin either. Also I have very sensitive skin and there hasn’t been any irritation!" β€”Kate

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (available in three scents).

    3. A pack of 16 Dermal Korea collagen sheet masks for possibly healthier, clearer, and more elastic skin. The scents vary, but they each contain vitamin E and collagen (plus, they're mess-free).


    Promising review: "These masks are amazing!!! Having 'ice pick' scars left over from acne I was told that I'd have to pay for expensive laser therapy because the body can't produce enough collagen to heal deep scars. I've been using these masks for two months and I've seen SIGNIFICANT reduction in my scars. They are almost completely gone!" β€”Shaun

    Promising review: "Great for the price. Love the rose and cucumber! The rubber applicator brush is awesome. I've used these several times over the course of two months and they are still full!" β€”ATDimi

    Get it from Walmart for $6.74.

    5. A self-warming pumpkin pore detox mask and scrub by Urban Skin Rx to help improve uneven skin tone and rid pores of bacteria and congestion.

    This is one of my personal favorites! It smells like a pumpkin spice latte and gives off a relaxing warmth (it literally warms up on your face). With fall right around the corner, now is the perfect time to try it out. It contains exfoliating jojoba beads, as well as enzymes and vitamins.

    Promising review: "This mask is one of the best I have tried yet! The exfoliating beads feel great while rubbing the mask all over your face and it's not as harsh as other brands have been. It has a nice warming sensation that helps you know it's working at detoxing the impurities from the skin. And best of all, the pumpkin scent is like holiday baking right in front of your face. Overall, this mask left my face feeling smooth, soft, clean, and has even shrunk my pores. Definitely recommend this to others!" β€”Tracyjm30

    Get it from Ulta for $17.99.

    6. A charcoal peel-off mask that'll work on clearing up those blackheads and whiteheads, and help reduce dark spots.


    Promising review: "Blackheads be gone! I used this once and have seen a huge difference. I have always had issues with blackheads and haven’t yet found a product that truly helps! This one finally is the winner and I couldn’t be happier! So happy I came across this product. It works wonders and doesn't dry out your skin! If you have issues with blackheads this is your go-to product!" β€”Abby

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    7. Olay's luminous overnight mask with a moisturizing gel formula that contains vitamins B3, C, E, and mulberry extract for brightening and hydrating your skin while you sleep.

    Promising review: "It's a very light mask and soaks in almost immediately. The scent is nice but not overpowering. Makes my skin feel amazing the next day. I have combination/acne prone skin. This does not cause me to break out at all. In fact I think this helps my acne." β€”Whitney Ellenberger

    Get it from Amazon for $22.02.

    8. SheaMoisture's African black soap clarifying mud mask for a natural remedy to assist with oily skin and help it feel refreshed and clean.

    This product is cruelty-free, paraben-free, and sulfate-free.

    Promising review: "I love this mask! It’s amazing at reducing redness, and acne! It also never irritates and it always leaves my skin super soft after using!" β€”Pete N

    Get it from Target for $14.99.

    9. An Ole Henriksen cold plunge pore mask that can help detoxify pores and smooth skin with an exhilarating chilling effect.


    To get the job done, this mask uses a combo of clay, snow lotus and alpine willow herb extracts, a blend of active botanicals, lactic acid (AHA), and salicylic acid (BHA).

    Promising review: "This mask is so much fun to wear and feels cool and amazing on. I have dry, sensitive skin, so the words pore and clay on anything makes me concerned about drying out my skin. This was not drying at all! And it contains one of my favorite ingredients, lactic acid! Lactic acid is amazing for reducing the size of pores and overall toning on the skin. (P.S. please wear sunscreen if you’re using lactic acid on your skin, it increases your sensitivity to the sun!)" β€”destinymoon

    Get it from Sephora for $36.

    10. Skin1004's Zombie Pack Masks meant to minimize fine lines and the appearance of pores by removing dead skin cells. Plus, you can totally act out The Walking Dead while you have it on!

    Promising review: "I own a salon and have worked in them for 19 years and never in my life have I used or seen something so amazing. I have read all about the Hanacure facial but it is expensive and always on back order. This is the same thing AND IT WORKS. It doesn't smell bad at all. There is a veryyyy slight smell to it but hardly noticeable and not something I'd complain about. This has natural ingredients and boy does it work. It sucked every thing out of my pores and shrunk them and all of the lines on my face are GONE. YES GONE." β€”Aja Rieger Cooke

    Get it from Amazon for $25.

    11. Freeman's cucumber gel peel-off mask for people with normal to combination skin. This mask is supposed to gently peel away impurities and leave skin looking bright and feeling silky-smooth.

    Promising review: "It's one of my favorite products to use it the morning. I keep it in the fridge for an extra cooling effect. It has a very refreshing effect, calms down redness and tightens pores. After I take it off, my skin feels nicely moisturized. It has a light, fresh scent which doesn't make my eyes water, which is an issue I usually have with peel-off masks. It also doesn't burn my sensitive skin upon application. It has a rather thick consistency and is clear. I'd say it takes about 15 minutes to fully dry, but that also depends on how thick you apply it. It's a very pleasant product and considering the price, I'm very happy with it." β€”Wiktoria

    Get it from Amazon for $6.18.

    12. A classic mint julep mask to absorb excess oil and help minimize the appearance of pores.

    Promising review: "I love this mask! I'm 38 and have oily skin. This is a bit drying (which is why it works so well!) so use a good moisturizer after rinsing this off. I like the minty scent but you can also smell the clays, which I don't mind. I use this mask anytime I feel like my skin is stressed, whether from traveling, internal stress, etc. I also use it just to treat myself and feel like I'm pampering myself. Finally, it's great as an overnight spot treatment if you have a blemish. Just don't forget to wash it off in the morning!" β€”stacia_angel

    Get it from Amazon for $6.60 (available in two scents).

    13. An Elizavecca Milky Piggy carbonated bubble clay mask, because not only is it fun to use, but it also has the ability to detoxify your skin, remove blackheads, and exfoliate pores.

    Promising review: "I have used this mask twice and so far I love it. I have acne scars, enlarged pores, and blackheads, and after two uses, I can already notice a difference in the appearance of my skin. My pores look smaller already and the blackheads are clearing. I have used everything on my face and nothing has worked on my pores. I LOVE this mask. It looks so funny!" β€”jburge

    Get it from Amazon for $8.95.

    14. A Kiehl's deep pore cleansing mask to help minimize the appearance of pores and reduce shine with the help of bentonite, aloe vera, and Amazonian white clay.


    Promising review: "This is THE BEST mask I've ever used. I have hormonal, cystic acne and rely on a mask to suck out the gunk on the regular. I've been using this for at least 10 years. I've tried others, but none are quite as good. It does a great job of pulling out toxins and balancing oil. But it does NOT dry my skin. Bonus: You can use as an overnight spot treatment. Put a little dab on a blemish and it will help dry it overnight. Lasts forever!" β€”chach86

    Get it from Sephora for $35.

    15. A luxurious 24k gold face mask with vitamin E to assist in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.,

    This product is also cruelty-free and not tested on animals!

    Promising review: "I've been wanting a glow facial for a while now, but I didn't want to pay those expensive spa prices. I'm so grateful to have ran across this amazing product. I can definitely see the difference after just one treatment! I'm so excited about my results. I will be ordering more." β€”Taquila Gordon

    Get it from Amazon for $21.50.

    16. A watermelon sleeping mask by Glow Recipe that uses hyaluronic acid and AHAs to help give you a skin-smoothing and radiance-boosting overnight facial.


    Promising review: "I've never had such immediate results from any other product before. Not only does it smell incredible (like a watermelon jolly rancher), but I wake up with an even complexion every time. Could not recommend more." β€”veganbritt

    Get it from Sephora for $45.

    17. The Body Shop's tea tree clay mask for people who have blemish-prone skin and are looking for a calming solution made of all natural ingredients.

    This mask is made with tea tree oil, lemon tea tree, and tamanu oil to help absorb excess oils and leave your face feeling smooth.

    Promising review: "Great mask for acne. It did help dry up some of my pimples, I then used a blackhead remover tool to remove the black heads. I would recommend this, but just note that it probably won't help with your cystic pimples." β€”Farrah Ali

    Get it from Amazon for $14.13.

    18. A Pure Biology clay face mask, which is packed with an antioxidant blend of bentonite clay, kaolin clay, retinol, vitamins B, C, and E, and natural alpha hydroxy acids, to assist with lightening dark spots, acne scars, and stretch marks β€” although it's totally fine to have those things!

    Promising review: "I loved how clean and refreshed my face felt after using this mask. There is a lot of product in the container but you don't need a lot to do the job. I really like that it's cold going on my face and the scent is pretty nice too. I'm excited to have found this product and can't wait to add it to my weekly skin care regimen. My face has never felt so good!" β€”Jill Morello

    Get it from Amazon for $28.

    19. A matcha green tea mud mask you can use to help fight acne-causing bacteria.,

    Promising review: "It is one of the best masks I have tried so far, leaves skin looking and feeling brighter, smoother and in general better. Whatever breakouts I had went away! I love it and will definitely buy again soon!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95.

    20. A paraben-free moisturizing and brightening rose sheet mask for a dewier looking complexion if you tend to deal with dryness and dullness.


    Promising review: "This mask is amazing! I have combination, sensitive skin with dryness in the winter. This mask not only got rid of my dryness (literally after one use), but also made my skin smoother, softer, and more even-looking. The best part? I didn't break out! New skin products are tricky for me β€” I love to try new products but often I'm left with a little cluster of zits. This mask did not leave a single blemish, and is super cheap! GO BUY THIS RIGHT NOW!" β€”kenziecollins

    Get it from Sephora for $6.

    21. A black sugar strawberry mask to exfoliate and moisturize skin with rich, organic minerals and leave your face smelling like fresh strawberries.,

    Promising review: "I have sensitive skin and this works as a great exfoliator because the natural ingredients help keep my skin from getting irritated. After a wash with the mask, my skin feels incredibly smooth. I will also say that I don't feel this dries out my skin a ton, which is great, but I have oily skin that's very hard to dry out. This mask smells amazing, like real strawberry jam." β€”Alex Ama

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    22. A super collagen mask by Mario Badescu designed to help improve dryness and dullness and lead to a glowing complexion.


    Promising review: "Love using this every other day! My wrinkles and fine lines show improvement after use. My face always feels so clean and fresh as well after use. I recommend to anyone looking for a nice collagen mask." β€”Angel

    Get it from Ulta for $18.

    23. Drunk Elephant's T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial to give your skin a pro-level treatment that'll exfoliate dead skin cells and rev up surface turnover to smooth and brighten.


    Plus, it is vegan, cruelty-free, and gluten-free.

    Promising review: "I've never written a review on here but this stuff is really magical. I'm on my second bottle and have even begun using on my arms to treat my keratosis pilaris. I've never found anything that this issue would respond to before this stuff. Of course things like moisturizing are very important to treat keratosis pilaris, but this stuff is a holy grail step for me. And I've tried EVERYthing." β€”mmnash

    Get it from Sephora for $80.

    24. A hydrating rubber mask by Dr. Jart+ to help you get rid of redness, irritation, dryness, and dullness.

    This mask uses a two-step system, including a highly concentrated ampoule serum and a unique rubber mask used to prevent the active ingredients from evaporating. This 15-40 minute process is meant to hydrate and soothe your skin for an instant pick-me-up!

    Promising review: "Most effective sheet mask that I've seen β€” so worth the $12!! I have naturally combo skin and it hydrated thoroughly while minimizing oil, which is rare for a hydration mask. I use acne medicine which is drying so I need the extra hydration. And this toned my skin and cleared up imperfections such as acne and dark spots in the 40 minutes it was on. So moisturizing and smoothing. Beautiful packaging and quality, not to mention the extra formula left over can be used in the days to come as a hydrating pick-me-up." β€”Christienneb

    Get it from Sephora for $12.

    Happy masking!
