Whether you're battling blemishes, clogged pores, dullness or a frustrating combination of all three, there's a face mask for that. Better yet, some of the best and buzziest masks can be found in the sparkling aisles of your favorite drugstore. Potently packed with skin-loving ingredients and available for under $25, we've rounded up the holy-grail drugstore masks that will boost your squad's complexions with a one-two punch of TLC and Instagram-worthy radiance. Cheers!
Plans for a long day out in in the sun? Pamper your skin (before and after) with a water-based sheet mask like this newly released formula from Garnier. Similar to its pricier, non-drugstore counterparts, the main ingredient in this pomegranate-infused mask is hyaluronic acid -- a research-backed heavy hitter that will quench skin with skin-plumping hydration -- without the greasy aftermath.
Just when we thought skin-care couldn't get any more scientific, we learned that come June, drugstore favorite E.L.F. will be releasing its highly covetable Beauty Shield Collection -- a drool-worthy regimen that promises to protect our complexions from environmental aggressors and sun damage. Enriched with antioxidants derived from carrot seed oil, sunflower seed oil, vitamin C, vitamin E, and argan oil, the collection's Recharging Magnetic Mask is currently at the top of every beauty editor's most-wanted list. Specifically designed to lift away imperfections, the iron-based face mask also helps to minimize the appearance of pores and smooth uneven complexions.
The perfect appetizer to a night in with your girls, this self-heating mask for dry skin is infused with nourishing cocoa fruit extract to help revive tired, lackluster skin. Loaded with nutrients, this clay-based mask warms on contact with skin and, when paired with your favorite glass of vino, offers your skin a double-dose of antioxidants.
If you haven't yet heard the theory that your makeup is only as good as your skin-care, consider yourself briefed. Reviving dull and tired skin is no easy feat, and despite the magical powers of primers, foundations and luminizers, a truly glowing complexion typically has more to do with the health of your skin -- not your Sephora card. Formulated with a luxe foaming oxygen complex, ginseng, caffeine, probiotics, lactic acid, antioxidants, and yes, vitamins, aplenty, there's not much this drugstore face mask from Pixi By Petra doesn't do.
