Facial masks have certainly become a “thing” lately. You’ll see people masking on airplanes, sitting in traffic, and scroll through Instagram and you’re certain to see a post or 20 of masks in use!
While they’re not necessarily new, I remember buying Freeman masks at Walmart when I was a teen, they’ve definitely become more popular! They’re a great way to indulge in a little self-care and perfect for those days or evenings when you’ve got some uninterrupted time at home. One of my favorite activities is putting on a mask while taking a bubble bath. Heavenly.
As a fan and frequent user I thought I’d share five of my favorite facial masks that actually work for my skin. Notice I said my skin, so I make no claims about your own! :)
What to know about my skin? It’s:
- Considered normal -not extra dry or oily
- Not super prone to breakouts, though a blemish here or there happens
- Gets a bit of redness around the chin and nose
- Lives with a toddler so it’s not prone to getting lots of sleep 😊
Should you have skin like me, maybe these masks will work for you too! (Even if you don’t have skin like me they’re worth a try!)

5 Skincare Facial Masks I Love
1. Pacifica Stress Rehab Coconut & Caffeine Face Mask
This has to go first on the list as I’ve become a devoted user to this amazingly effective mask. This was one of the first masks I ever put on that I could feel working and I make sure to always have one on hand for days I’m especially sleep deprived or my skin is acting up!
2. Tonymoly Brightening Lemon Face Mask
After it had been a few months after having my son, I was still dealing with crazy postpartum skin. It was puffy, red, and not sleeping certainly wasn’t making me look any younger.
I honestly thought this was just how I would look forever until the morning I gave this mask a try. Suddenly I looked, and felt, like myself again!
3. Vichy Double Glow Peel Mask
This is a gentle exfoliating mask you apply and rinse after a few minutes. I got it as a sample in a beauty subscription box but have since purchased it on my own.
It leaves my skin soft and smooth and a little goes a long way. I’ve been buying the smaller container and still using it.
4. Apto Healing Turmeric Mask
Any time I start to see a breakout flaring, this is my go-to! You can use it as a spot treatment or just apply all over, both of which I’ve done.
I really feel like it calms my skin and helps clear things up.
5. Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment Mask
Another I use every few weeks, this is a cleaning mask that really gets in deep!
This is always a good one to have on hand, and one I like to use at least monthly even if my skin is looking good. Think of it as a maintenance product! This one is a higher priced product but I’ve had good luck getting smaller sizes in beauty subscription bags or at Sephora.
Those are my go-tos, what about you? Do you have some favorite facial masks?
