My Favourite Drugstore Face Masks

Whilst I do like to splash out on the odd skincare item now & again. it's always great when you can find something from the drugstore that works well for you too, and means you can save those spare pounds for other things. I've tried quite a few different face masks from the drugstore in recent years, with varying results, but here are three I would most definitely recommend buying, all of which are £10 or less.

Superdrug Vitamin E Moisture Mask This mask really is super affordable, coming in at less than £3. Some people I know sniff at own branded products. but Superdrug's masks really are great. The instructions say to leave this on for around 10-15 minutes, which I'll sometimes do, but quite often I'll use it in the same way as my Origins Drink Up Intensive mask and leave it on overnight. The results aren't quite as good, but when you look at the price comparison (this is roughly 10% of the price of Origins), it does really well for the money you're paying. I like to use this if my skin is suffering a little bit in the summer months, but I don't need something quite as intense as Origins.

Super Facialist Rose Hydrate Intense Moisture Mask This really is quite an intensely moisturising mask, as it gives such great results without the long wear time that I give most of my other hydrating masks. It says to leave on for five minutes, but I usually give it 10, sometimes even 15, for good measure, yet it still doesn't irritate my skin, as it's formulating with sensitive skin in mind. This always leaves my skin feeling soft and looking radiant, it's great for when you're needing that little extra hydration boost, so it's quite often whipped out in the winter.

Sanctuary Spa 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask As you can probably tell from my previous mask choices, my main skin concern is it being dry, however I do occasionally get the odd nasty breakout that needs seeing to, and that's when I usually reach for this mask. I tend to use this just in the T-Zone, as it can be a little dehydrating on my cheeks, but this always does a good job of clearing up breakouts after a few uses. I can imagine people with oilier skin would love this mask.

What's your favourite drugstore face mask?
