    1. A pack of Skin1004's Zombie 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!

    amazon.com

    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 everything out of my pores and shrunk them and all of the lines on my face are GONE. YES GONE." —Aja Rieger Cooke

    Get it from Amazon for $24.97 (each box includes eight masks).

    2. A luxurious 24k gold face mask with vitamin E to assist in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles — while making you feel like a total golden goddess.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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." —Taquila Gordon

    Get it from Amazon for $21.50.

    3. And a 12-pack of gold collagen eye masks for assisting with puffiness, dryness, dark circles, and fine lines.

    These eye masks are made of plant-based collagen and are all natural, vegan, cruelty-, and paraben-free.

    Promising review: "I tried these on a whim and they are some the best eye masks. I notice a difference every time I use them. My recommendation is to wait the full 20 minutes. I’ve used cheaper masks and more expensive masks. These work just as well as the more expensive masks." —fuzzytribble

    Get a pack of 12 pairs from Amazon for $27.95.

    4. 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 by using a combination of pumpkin fruit extract, vitamin E, silver, and jojoba beads.

    instagram.com

    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). It's very soothing, does some gentle exfoliating, and makes my skin feel clean and refreshed.

    Promising review: "This is the BEST mask I’ve ever used! Absolutely love this! Works well for acne, dark spots, skin tone and evenness. AND it smells amazing!" —Z&K

    Get it from Amazon for $36.

    amazon.com

    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!" —jburge

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    6. A natural mineral-infused dead sea mud mask to use as a daily acne treatment. The pure Dead Sea mud helps to cleanse and purify your skin, while providing a soothing sensation.

    amazon.com

    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!" —Kate

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

    7. A watermelon sleeping mask by Glow Recipe that uses a fresh and fruity watermelon extract along with hyaluronic acid and AHAs to help give you a skin-smoothing and radiance-boosting overnight facial.

    Sephora

    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." —veganbritt

    Get it from Sephora for $45.

    8. A pack of marshmallow extract and white clay face mask tablets, which you mix with water for a lil DIY action, that's meant to balance, refine, and smooth the skin.

    Amazon

    When I tried this face mask I thought the DIY aspect was cool because they don't take up as much space in my beauty cabinet and it's honestly kind of fun! The mask is super easy to mix and apply. It left my face feeling nice and clean — not sticky or tight at all — and it barely has a scent. You can see the process in my TikTok below!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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." —Alex Ama

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "One of the best peel-off masks I have used. Scent is really light and pleasant, not overpowering. Skin definitely looks brighter and more radiant after use. Does not irritate my very sensitive skin, and it actually peels off very easily!!! There is probably enough for about 10 total applications. Will absolutely be purchasing again!" —Jennifer S.

    Get it from Amazon for $25.

    Petite Amie Skincare

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love these masks. The animal faces are so cute. I also like how each mask does a different thing. Some are moisturizing or firming/lifting or brightening and they all leave my skin feeling or looking great." —Mariah Greer

    Promising review: "This product is so fun and left my skin feeling great! The hydro mask is cooling and feels good while it’s on, I was shocked when I peeled it off and my skin felt like it just drank a glass of water! Usually I feel like I need to put on my moisturizer after a mask but I don’t feel the need to do that at all after this one. I’ll be purchasing again for sure." —rochelleryan

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "Skinfood is my new go-to in skincare. Seriously? This shizzle is AMAZING! I love it! I take meds that cause some acne. This stuff has taken five years off the appearance of my skin, tightened pores, and left my skin brighter and smoother than anything I've ever used. I was a high-end makeup addict. No more! I threw out what I had left of my L#ncome and bought all the Skinfood products I could find. I've never had so many compliments on my skin!" —gardenmaven08

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    There is a bit of mixing involved — you'll need to add some apple cider vinegar for it to do its best work. This product is cruelty-free and formulated without additives or fragrances.

    Promising review: "I first want to share that I typically don’t share reviews but this products has truly helped clear my skin. My adult acne has been out of control for some time now. I’ve tried everything including hormone therapy which didn’t help. I’ve ended up with a scarred face from so much picking at my acne. I’m sooo amazed by this mask. Yes it dries your face but a good moisturizer does the trick. So thankful for this product. I do masks all the time. Most recent was a black sea mask. It cleaned up my blackheads, but my acne remained. This seems to be doing the trick! Try it out! You won’t regret it." —Danielle Torres

I have very dry facial skin. My skin is sensitive in general. After one use of this mask (letting sit for 20 minutes then wash off) my skin felt silky, smooth, and brand new. No joke. I cannot wait to keep using this and seeing the ~what feels like magic ~ happen. Can't recommend this enough." —TB
