Affordable Mud Sheet Mask
Yes to Miracle Oil Argan Oil Mud Mask, $2.99, is the ultimate trifecta of masking trends: It's a sheet mask, a mud mask, and it contains argan oil. It leaves skin feeling plump and hydrated, and it costs the same as a cup of coffee. What's not to love?
Detoxifying Clay Mask
Clay and charcoal work together in the L'Oreal Paris Pure-Clay Mask Detox and Brighten Treatment, $12.99, to pull nasty things like dirt and pollution out of your pores. And the ultra creamy masks never gets dry and tight. Rinse it off after 10 minutes, and you may not even need moisturizer.
Mud Mask in Gel Form
Volition Detoxifying Silt Gelee, $60, is so much more than a basic mud or clay mask -- mostly because it's made with black silt that comes from the bottom of a lake in Finland. The unusual ingredient is high in minerals and nutrients that help balance out your skin. Plus, the gel is wildly hydrating thanks to jojoba oil and quinoa.
Skin-Calming Mud Mask
If you have red, irritated skin, Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Hydrating Mud Mask, $14.99, is the mask for you. It's packed with organic, hydrating shea and cocoa butters as well as anti-inflammatory frankincense and myrrh extract. And, of course, it has mud to help clarify while it calms.
