#1. JUARA Radiance Enzyme Mask
Bringing out your inner radiance is something we strive to do in every product. But the JUARA Radiance Enzyme Mask takes this goal just a step further.
This mask takes a 3-in-1 approach. As apple enzymes and vitamin C purify and polish the skin, exfoliant beads help to scrub away dead skin cells while brightening your complexion.
Those with uneven skin texture will love the pore refining properties this mask has to offer. And with super-star ingredients like candlenut, ginger, cinnamon, and clove flower, your complexion will receive a boost in circulation, creating a brightening effect from within.
For acne-prone skin, bamboo and jojoba beads will work to gently exfoliate any surface debris away. And you'll be left with younger, softer, and smoother skin.
This mask and exfoliating scrub is a no-brainer for those with oily skin. With a skin-supporting multifaceted treatment all in one, you really can't go wrong.
#2. JUARA Rose & Willowbark Purifying Mask
White willow bark, rose water, and red sandalwood come together in this gentle, purifying mask. With skin-softening rice and purifying kaolin clay, our JUARA Rose & Willowbark Purifying Mask is perfect for those who want to refine their skin's texture.
This oil-free, fragrance-free formula is ideal for those with oily skin or acne-prone skin. Rice bran oil and rice starch have been used for centuries in Indonesian beauty treatments.
And they're particularly good ingredients for skin that's dry and stressed. What better way to soothe stressed acne-prone skin than with this luxurious formula that removes impurities, gently exfoliates, and minimizes pores all in one?
#3. Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay
Sometimes, oily skin needs some tough love to get oil production back under control. And this Indian Healing Clay gets right down to business.
100% natural calcium bentonite clay is the only ingredient used in this clay mask. But this one ingredient can do some magical things for those looking to clarify and tighten acne-prone skin.
Plenty of DIY users have noted this clay mask's ability to serve multiple purposes. It's there for you whether you want a full face of a clay mask or a simple spot treatment for a pimple here and there.
The only complaint this clay mask gets is that it can be a little bit drying. But for those with severely acne-prone skin, this clay mask does just the trick to keeping their excess sebum under control.
#4. JUARA Turmeric Antioxidant Radiance Mask
We often forget that acne-prone skin is actually just sensitive skin. After all, acne, red bumps, and pustules are all signs of inflammation and irritation.
But the JUARA Turmeric Antioxidant Radiance Mask soothes these sensitivities like no other. As a natural anti-inflammatory, turmeric offers powerful antioxidant benefits while simultaneously calming skin.
Paired with candlenut, this mask packs in all the unifying benefits of a clay mask. But it doesn't come with the drying, hardening, and stripping effect clay masks can sometimes have.
#5. MARA Volcanic Sea Clay Detox Masque
Bentonite clay makes another appearance in this Volcanic Sea Clay Detox Masque. But what gives this clay mask its volcanic nomenclature?
A spritz of infrared-infused volcanic ash from Jeju Island in South Korea. Yes, you read that right.
Alongside ashwagandha, green tea, and ethically-sourced honey, this volcanic ash clay mask both revitalizes and refreshes acne-prone skin, giving you a clear, smooth canvas.
#6. Indie Lee Clearing Mask
It seems counterintuitive to condition and hydrate acne-prone skin. But with gentle yet powerful ingredients like salicylic acid, glycolic acid, and zinc oxide, the Indie Lee Clearing Mask does exactly that.
This clay mask tackles a couple of different worries all in one. As salicylic and glycolic acids exfoliate, zinc oxide, chamomile, and red seaweed recondition and hydrate the skin.
#7. Beekman 1802 Milk Mud Warming Clay Mask
Lovers of a thick clay mask will absolutely adore Beekman 1902's Milk Mud Warming Clay Mask. Its active ingredients help open pores, loosen dead skin cells, and purge any dirt and oil found deep within the skin.
With shimmering earth minerals, this clay mask will leave your skin soft and smooth, adding just a touch of sparkle to both your spirit and complexion.
#8. Allies of Skin Promise Keeper Blemish Sleeping Facial
When your typical sheet mask or clay mask just won't cut it, you need to reach for the big guns. Well, in this case, a small tube with other power-packed ingredients.
The Promise Keeper Nightly Blemish Treatment is considered the holy grail for acne-prone skin. As an overnight mask, it works around the clock to reduce the appearance of stubborn breakouts while brightening and improving skin texture.
With ingredients like rosehip seed oil, colloidal silver, manuka honey, and more, you can't go wrong. All you have to do is apply it, then doze off.
#9. OLEHENRIKSEN Cold Plunge Pore Mask
First, let's address the elephant in the room. Why is it called a "cold plunge" clay mask?
Because this unique formula blends clay with snow lotus extract to make for a powerful clay mask that tackles clogged pores while controlling surface oil for up to 8 hours.
Snow lotus is rich in antioxidants to help nourish and condition the skin. When combined with a proprietary blend of active botanicals like green tea, eucalyptus, algae, and Irish moss, it's no wonder blemishes don't stand a chance against this clay mask.
#10. Caudalie Purifying Clay Mask
There's a lot to love about this Purifying Clay Mask. Green clay and zinc join forces in this non-comedogenic, mattifying pore minimizer to reduce the look of imperfections while mattifying skin in as little as 5 minutes.
But what makes this product so exciting is its fully recyclable packaging. Designed with recycled plastic and glass, this unique clay mask solution truly knows how to treat you, your skin, and the planet right.
#11. GlamGlow Supermud Clearing Treatment
In case your weekly sheet mask isn't cutting it, you'll want to go with GlamGlow's SuperMud Instant Clearing Treatment Mask. It's their most advanced clearing treatment and a #1 best-selling charcoal mask among their various products.
As activated-x charcoal lifts dirt, toxins, and excess oil from your pores, a blend of six acids helps to loosen dead skin cells, exfoliating and sweeping them away. All you need is a thin layer for a visibly more clear complexion.
#12. Dr. Jart+ Dermamask Micro Jet Clearing Solution
This sheet mask may come packaged in a plastic sleeve with a pill-shaped design. But trust us when we say that this pill is super easy to swallow.
Glutathione takes center stage in this sheet mask to even skin tone and reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation. Behind the scenes, salicylic acid, tea tree oil, and niacinamide tackle the T-zone area for excess oil.
All in all, these ingredients work perfectly together, making for a sheet mask that'll make your night a productive one.
#13. Paula's Choice Clear Purifying Clay Mask
Acne-prone skin will especially appreciate what this Purifying Clay Mask has to offer. Three different clays come together in this formula to control shine while green tea and willowherb help to calm any redness.
Its easy-to-apply texture effortlessly soothes stressed skin, helping to minimize the look of enlarged pores and even prevent future breakouts. All in all, this formula will make your skin as clear as can be.
#14. Yes To Tomatoes Acne Fighting Paper Mask
Cucumbers over the eyes may be the more stereotypical look of a spa day at home. But this Acne Fighting Paper Mask gives tomatoes the spotlight in this sheet mask.
Tomatoes are a natural source of antioxidants to help balance oily skin. And when paired with salicylic acid, your skin will say goodbye to blemishes and hello to a clearer-looking complexion.
#15. LOLI Beauty Pank Pitaya Mask
At JUARA, we are huge fans of using only the highest quality ingredients. And that's exactly what these zero-waste face masks have to offer.
While these face masks come in the form of a powder, all you have to do is combine it with equal parts water for your all-in-one exfoliating cleanser, Vitamin C mask, decongesting scrub, and blemish soother.
