For the girl who can’t make it to the spa as often as she’d like, at-home face masks are a must. If you’re like me — and you’re way too lazy to make your own DIY concoctions — store-bought masks are a major need in your weekly skincare routine. From acne and spot-reduction to dullness, redness, and dehydration, there’s a mask to target all of your skincare concerns. Click through this gallery to check out 10 bomb masks to help you live your best pampered princess life!


New to my collection is the Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleep Mask ($45.00, Sephora.com). Korean beauty experts at Glow Recipe know what they’re doing when it comes to skin, and this dual-use gem is no exception. What I love about this one is that you can use it as a traditional wash-off mask, or you can leave it on overnight to wake up to a morning glow! The formula is packed with hyaluronic acid. It sounds scary, but hyaluronic acid is actually naturally produced by our skin cells to maintain moisture. This super ingredient makes this one a go-to for hydration, and plus, it smells like watermelon! Bonus!


I love trying products with cool ingredients I wouldn’t think to seek out, so the Bliss Mighty Marshmallow Bright & Radiant Whipped Mask ($15.00, ulta.com) immediately caught my eye. The marshmallow root extract delivers a heavy dose of hydration, but my favorite thing about this mask is that it visibly evens the tone of my skin. I always wake up feeling ready for the day, even before any makeup application. I also love that it’s cool to the skin upon application.


If you’re a face mask-connoisseur, chances are you’ve tried GlamGlow at least once. A newbie to the brand, I was impressed when I tried the GlamGlow ThirstyMud Hydrating Treatment ($59.00, Sephora.com). A bit on the pricier side, I know, but I’ll make that sacrifice if it means I can maintain moisturized skin. This is another mask with hyaluronic acid to help your skin cells hold their water for that hydrated, bouncy look and feel.


The Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask ($48.00, Sephora.com) is a cult-favorite. This mask stands out because of its sleek squeeze-tube packaging, which makes it super convenient for travel (as the name suggests). My favorite part? This mask doubles as a moisturizer. It’s not too thin and not too thick, which makes it perfect to leave on during the day when you’re out and about. It’s also the perfect recovery treatment after you return home and wash the gunk and debris of the day off your face. This handy two-in-one stays in my bag!


When it comes to skincare, you really should give a sheet…Okay, horrible pun, but I’m not sorry. Sheet masks are great for on-the-go masking to give your skin a quick pick-me-up. The Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Hydrogel Mask ($2.99, ulta.com) is one of my favorites. At under $3.00, it’s also skincare that doesn’t break the bank. This sheet mask is soaked in—you guessed it—hyaluronic acid to keep you hydrated. No thirsty skin in 2019, understood?


The Boscia Matcha Magic Super-Antioxidant Mask ($38.00, Sephora.com) proves that green tea really is the answer to all life’s problems. Perhaps a slight exaggeration, but seriously, this mask is made with Matcha green tea which is full of antioxidants that reduce redness and calm inflammation. This makes it a great pick for my fellow sensitive-skin ladies. I love the thick, creamy texture of this mask, and let’s face it—the leafy green color just makes you feel healthier.

I swear, I didn’t want to fall in love with this mask because the price point is a bit steep, but low and behold…here we are. The Dior Hydra Life Pores Away Pink Clay Mask ($69.00, Sephora.com) is bougie in a bottle, and my skin is here for every ounce of it. This mask not only feels luxurious going on, but your skin feels the same after rinsing! The pink clay is enriched with jojoba extract and natural minerals to purify the skin and suck out toxins. As advertised, I always feel like my face is pore-less after rinsing this bad boy off. Smooth, smooth, smooth. It’s going to make you FEEL like you are the spa.

I like to think of Glossier as “makeup for models,” or girls who don’t need makeup. I joke, I joke, but in all seriousness, the minimal-beauty manufacturers understand that good makeup starts with great skincare, and that’s what they’ve delivered with the Glossier Moisturizing Moon Mask ($22.00, glossier.com). Sweet almond oil and your new bestie, hyaluronic acid, work together to deliver a moisture boost to dry skin. Lemon fruit extract and licorice root help even and brighten overall tone. All in all, this mask works for all skin-types, but it’s a keeper for my dry girls out there.


Burt’s Bees has been a natural beauty bae for a while now, so I was thrilled when the Burt’s Bees Exfoliating Clay Mask ($14.99, burtsbees.com) proved to be a winner. The clay draws out and gets rid of impurities and removes excess oil from your face. You’re left with a smooth, soft texture you can’t stop touching. This mask is great for those with textured, oily, or acne-prone skin.

Last but not least, we have a personal favorite—the Tatcha Violet-C Radiance Mask ($68.00, sephora.com). This mask is formulated with two types of Vitamin C, one for immediate absorption and glow and another for long-term UV protection, keeping skin even in tone and smooth to the touch. Not to mention, the purple color makes you feel like absolute royalty.
