Face masks seem to be saturating the market at an increasingly rapid rate. Sheet masks, eye masks, clay masks, charcoal masks – I mean, is anyone else overwhelmed? That being said, I’ve really enjoyed trying face mask samples and have found many favorite face masks in the process. Today, I’m sharing with you the four face masks that are working to change my skin as well as sharing some face masks that I am itching to try.
As you can tell from the above picture, I only like to use a few face masks at time so my skin gets variety, but doesn’t completely freak out. These are the four that I’ve been using for the last six months that I have really enjoyed.
Que Bella Relaxing – I don’t remember how I came across this face mask, but I had heard wonderful things about this brand. This face mask contains lavender to help depuff and soothe skin. I love the tingling sensation that accompanies this mask and the lavender scent isn’t wildly overpowering. This packet contains enough product for about three uses – great bang for your buck. How does this mask perform? It noticeably softens my skin.
Freeman Avocado & Oatmeal Clay Mask – I picked up this face mask while hunting around Ulta for the black, charcoal one by this brand. I saw that this one had clay, so I thought “How bad could it be?” Now one thing that I did notice that was off about this mask was that it stung my eyes. I applied it with and without dampening my face first. In both cases, my eyes stung. Granted, the stinging was severely worse when I dampened my face (like tears streaming down my face). That being said, this mask works wonders on the blackheads on my nose. Since the clay does dry out my skin (hence the disappearance of blackheads) I can only use it about twice a week.

Origins Clear Improvement Charcoal Mask – This is my favorite mask ever. Before my mom read my mind and gifted me with a set of mini Origins products, I had been eying this mask for years. Unlike the other two masks I mentioned before, you wet your face before applying . Then I slather a whole glob of the stuff on and let it do its thing. While this is a very pricey face mask, it is a pretty good value despite the price tag. I have used the small sample pictured above at least five times and there is still more than half left. Seriously, get this face mask. It will change your skin for the better.
Royal Apothem Cuppa Cuppa – This sample I received in a Christmas gift from my wonderful boss and let me tell you, it’s fabulous. It contains teeny tiny granules that exfoliate the skin just wonderfully. My skin texture has not felt so smooth as it does after I use this mask. I have used the sample pictured above three times and there is still over half of the tube left. In doing research as to where you can buy this mask, I found it on Birchbox’s website.
Since face masks are still so popular there are so many that I want to try. Before I go and shell out some cash for another face mask, I want to use up the ones I already have. Here are the face masks that are at the top of my list:
Purity Made Simple by Philosophy – Y’all know my love affair with Philosophy skincare products, so I am itching to give this mask a go. I received two tubes of this face mask for my birthday and I keep telling myself that I need to finish two of the other face masks before I rip one open.
Origins Original Skin Retexturizing Mask With Rose Clay – If my first skincare love is Philosophy, Origins is a close second. Like the Origins charcoal mask, I have heard wonderful things about this and am optimistic that it would do wonders to improve my skin texture.
Since I’m [soon-to-be] in the market for a new face mask, I want to know: What is your favorite face mask?
