Top Masks for Oily Skin


With summer just around the corner, it’s time for me to break out the clay masks that keep me from becoming an oily mess the moment I step outside.  By cleaning out my pores, I’m also reducing the number of impurities that can easily morph into acne.

Michael Todd Cosmetics Kaolin Clay Mask

I first began using this mask after trying out the acne prone blemish kit from Michael Todd several years ago.  While the cleanser, toner, and moisturizer were all a great help to my skin, I found this mask made the most impact.  For those of you who’ve never tried a mask that contains kaolin clay, the face becomes extremely tingly and warm.  This particular mask is gives one of the strongest reactions I’ve ever had to a mask, but thankfully I don’t have sensitive skin.  If you do have to steer clear of stronger masks, then I recommend you try the more sensitive version of this mask Michael Todd offers.  Overall, this mask clears my pores of any and all gunk, and I make sure I never run out of it.

Lush Cosmetics Brazened Honey

While showing off the wonders of Lush to a good friend, I decided to pick up this refrigerated mask!  The smell of this mask alone would be enough for me to buy it again, but the tingling warmth, ground almonds, and moisturizing honey tightened my face and made it feel great.  For a more in depth review, check out my YouTube review here.   If you have access to a Lush store near you, I think you have to try one of there fresh face masks.

Freeman Mint & Lemon Clay Mask

If you clicked on the above link to watch my YouTube review of Brazened Honey, then you’ll know that I wasn’t all that impressed with previous mint masks that I’ve used in the past.  My opinion of mint masks held true until I ordered this one over a year ago.  This mask cools and refreshes the skin, but the lemon in it definitely helps reduce the oiliness of my skin once I wash it off.  My face also feels extremely clean, but not stripped raw.  The Freeman online store is currently closed, but they recommend purchasing it from Amazon here.  I’ve had my tube for over a year, so I think the price is definitely a bargain!

Worth Trying?

Well, there you have it!  My list of the clay masks that I use the most, and why I like them.  I’m always trying out new masks (clay or not), so keep an eye out for my next review.  Also, please don’t forget to let me know if you have a favorite clay mask for acne prone skin!
