Face Masks for Oily Skin

Hello Beauties,

If you have oily skin like me, you know the importance of a weekly face mask. Here are some of my favourite face masks that are most suitable for oily skin types to keep the oils at bay and prevent breakouts.

Queen Helene- Mint Julep Masque

This is a great drugstore face mask, that absorbs excess oil without completely stripping the skin. This retails for approximately $6 and is available from iHerb. It can be a little drying so I recommend applying before you head into the shower and once in the shower wash off with hands and a damp muslin cloth.

Swisse Manuka Honey Detoxifying Facial Mask

This is quite a unique mud mask, its actually quite thin in texture and not as drying as other mud masks. To wash off its best to start off by adding a bit of water and massaging the mask in, then to finish off use a warm muslin cloth. Afterwards my skin felt really clean, a little red and when I apply my remaining skincare products my face drinks it up. I’ve also applied Alpha H Liquid Gold after using this mask and my skin had a bit of a tingle, so I could tell this mask really cleared out the skin.

Maskd- The Green Mask*

This face mask is suitable for all skin types as it helps to; smooth fine lines and wrinkles, reduces blemishes and reduces scarring and soothes damaged skin. When you first apply this there’s definitely a tingle, maybe for about 3 minutes. I then leave it on for about 10 minutes and wash off using the flannel provided. I’m then left with beautiful, radiant skin. No jokes, my skin is literally radiant! Bae also loves this mask.

Glam Glow- Supermud Clearing Treatment

When my skin was at its most problematic, this was my go to face mask. I used this bi-weekly and noticed a positive result. Because this is a mud mask it is quite drying. I highly recommend washing this off in the shower with a warm muslin cloth. After the mask is washed off, you’re left with brighter, tighter and maybe redder skin if you’re sensitive. It does have quite a tightening effect so I recommend moisturising heavily after using this mask. Click here for a full review of the Glam Glow- Supermud Clearing Treatment.

Dermalogica Charcoal Rescue Masque*  

This has become a new favourite of mine. I love that it’s not completely drying, its easier to remove and also provides a slight exfoliating effect. The best way to remove this mask is to leave it on for about 5 minutes or so to dry then slowly add warm water and start massaging it in. This creates the exfoliation and then you can wash off when you’re ready. After washing this off you’re left with clearer, brighter skin. This would be suitable for all skin types that suffer from problematic skin as its not too drying. Click here for a full review of the Dermalogica face mask.

  1. Thank you so much, so helpful now! I’ve been using a similar Manuka honey mask from Organi and just like the Swisse. It has to be done the same way. Overall, I think I might have to give the other masks a try, as I don’t like spending too much time on my face 🙂
