Best face masks for Oily skin- under £10

Face masks usually work by hydrating, cleansing, clearing pores and detoxifying skin. Each face mask works depending on the ingredients it contains.

There are 3 different face masks:

  1. Cream masks ( works by hydrating and nourishing the skin, therefore ideal for dry skin types)
  2. Clay masks ( good for deep cleansing and drawing out excess oil and purities from skin, which makes this ideal for oily skin types)
  3. setting masks ( masks that harden, examples are peel off masks, brightens and rejuvenate skin)

Face masks for oily skin

If you have oily skin, you will know that by now. You are probably 1 of the millions of women out there with oily skin. You know this because even after applying your best face primer layered with an oil-free foundation; 3 hours later you mistakenly glance in a mirror and the first thing you can see, is how shiny your nose and forehead area.

The best way to avoid this is focussing on your skin care. Face masks are used to treat particular skin conditions, hence why you will need to choose the right one.

Here are 3 face masks suitable for oily skin types.

This face mask is cheap, but it does the work. I used this mask consistently for two weeks and I was in love with it. My skin became more matte with less shine.

Dead Sea Spa Magik Mud Mask 75ml: £7.99


Face masks

This face mask deep cleanses to help remove impurities, blackheads, whiteheads and reveal a smooth glowing skin. Being a lover of dead sea bath salts, I decided to have some dead sea applied to my face and the best option was a face mask. I tried the spa magik mud mask, and the first thing I fell in love with was the texture and smell. The mask is smooth in texture and once applied to the face, it is barely felt. The end result is also great because my skin felt smoother and looked brighter right after washing away the mask.

A peel-off mask works by removing impurities from the skin. This boots peel of mask is cheap but does the work. I just applied it, left it to dry and peeled it off. My skin after using this is less shiny and super smooth. What I love the most is the smoothness in the feel of my face, reason why I reach for a peel of mask each time my skin has been through stress.

    I don’t have oily skin, but I admit to being a face mask junkie, through and through. Lately, I’ve been experimenting with diy recipes. Whenever my husband travels, I close the blinds, put one on my face, deep condition my hair, and treat it like an evening at the spa. x

    I’ve only ever done the peel off masks, but this has me intrigued by the dead sea mud mask. I tend to have dry skin though so I wonder if it would be drying?

    I only use face masks that were given to me to try. It is usually my sister who shares her great finds with me. I will have to tlet her know about these masks you listed here. She’s got slightly oily facial skin and I think the charcoal mask would work for her.

    Thanks for letting me know about these face masks. There are times of the year when my face gets oily and I think a charcoal mask would help me with that issue. Glad to know the price of these masks are very affordable!
