Buying skin care without knowing what you’re looking for is like going into battle unarmed—never a good idea. Face masks, in particular, can be a tough call because there are so many of them on the market, all claiming to do very different, very impressive things. Who even knows who you can trust around here?
To assuage some of the (still-inevitable) confusion, we mined seven of the most popular, best-rated face masks based on reviews from Reddit, Makeup Alley, Sephora, and Ulta. One single testament alone won’t do; each of these options has many a review attesting to its quality. It’s the closest you’ll ever get to trying them all yourself (aside from actually trying them all yourself, of course).
