My Affordable Face Masks Picks

Now when it comes to skin care, I usually reach for something a little more expensive. Now I am not a snob when it comes to the highstreet however I like good ingredients in my skincare and results. So I thought that today I would come at you with my favourite affordable high-street face masks!


These masks are aimed at de congesting so are great for blemish prone skins. I have other favourite masks for other skin problems (see: The Body Shop, see: Lush). However these have such fantastic results with my skin and leaves it feeling so clean and fresh without it feeling tight or stripped.

Simple Kind To Skin Deep Cleansing Face Mask £3.99 - The cheapest of the three by far. This little gem I love for small pimples or when my skin feels thirsty and a little clogged. It isn't one I reach for when I am having a huge outbreak as I don't find it that clarifying. However it is great for de-congesting the skin whilst leaving it smooth as it isn't too abrasive and is extremely gentle on the skin. A must have for sensitive skins and for when your face isn't feeling top condition however isn't in meltdown. 

Soap & Glory Fab Pore Facial Peel £10 - Quite a price difference jump here I know however this is certainly a cleansing de-congesting mask. It has little beads which you massage and burst when applying it onto your face and it feels wonderful and tingly. This is certainly one I reach for when I have some unsightly breakouts on my face which I want to tame. This is full of salicylic acid to kill that spot producing bacteria and is a great one to really clean out the pores! Fantastic face mask if you aren't a fan of mud masks and want something that works without the hefty price tag.

Vichy NormaDerm TriActive Cleansing 3-in-1 Cleanser Scrub and Mask £11 (sample size in photo) - Now this, I guess, is worth the money as you can use this as a cleanser, scrub AND mask! Multi-use product at its best! As you may have suspected, the mask has beads in it. I like to massage it into my face to initially scrub any dirt our of my pores and leave the mask on to do its thing then re-scrub it off with water to again give that little bit of extra exfoliation. Like the S&G mask, this has a nice tingly feeling and is very clarifying which leaves my skin feeling clean and bacteria free. Again this is one I reach for when my skin feels clogged, is a little blemished and needs a good clean out. In the picture is a sample size and the full bottle is 125ml so you get your bang for your buck here!

    1. I imagine that they should be available as I bought them in Boots so perhaps if you look in there or online? The only product which might not be available is Vichy. x
