A skin saviour that won’t break the bank? We decided to go on the hunt for the best face masks to solve your skincare needs without breaking the bank.
A skincare regime is one thing, but every now and again skin can either look or feel as though it needs a boost, a detox or even a complete pick-me-up. Rather than book in for a facial or invest in something expensive, the high street can often come to the rescue with a selection of really affordable face masks.
After trying and testing a battalion, here are five of the best…
For a boost in radiance
Not all skin woes can be solved in one, single step. Yes to Grapefruit 2-Step Face Kit: All About Face! £4.99, contains a grapefruit and vitamin C enriched pore scrub to start and a brightening face peel to reveal refreshed, radiant looking skin. Both steps are paraben free, made with 96% natural ingredients and you won’t find SLS or silicones in there either.
For a pick-me-up
Ideal for travel when long-haul flights can drain your complexion of it’s vibrancy, plumpness and glow. Montagne Jeunesse 7th Heaven Passion Peel-Off Mask, £1, is easy to use, relatively fuss-free and peels off to reveal better looking, brighter skin. A combination of pomegranate, passion flower, raspberry, vitamin E and antioxidants puts your tired skin in a safe hands.
For a little TLC
It’s well known that mashed up avocado on the face is an instant pick-me-up, but we all known it’s better spread on a slice of rye bread with a soft-boiled egg. You can still get all that green-goodness with the Oh K Face Mask Avocado, £3. The infused fibre sheet mask is intensely nourishing and its unique design means the solution goes into the skin instead of evaporating off it.
For blemish-prone skin
When you don’t want a problem-solver but you do want to give your skin a boost the Good Things 5 Minute Facial Mask, £3.99, is a good tube to have in your pocket. Packed with superfruits this creamy mask will give a gentle but noticeable boost. The green clay and kaolin work in unison to draw out impurities, while avocado oil and goji berry sooth and moisturise.
For a detoxifying deep cleanse
The less fuss the better, right? Simple Kind to Skin Deep Cleansing Mask, £3.99, contains pro-vitamin B5 to restore and soften and vitamin E to intensely nourish skin. There’s also clay in the mix here to detoxify while seaweed cleanses and purifies. If your skin is reactive or sensitive this is the choice for you.
