If there's one beauty truth that pretty much everyone can agree upon, it's that there's nothing more satisfying that a good peel-off face mask. And when it's an affordable drugstore peel-off mask, that's even better. There's just something so satisfying about applying a cool gel mask, waiting for it to dry, and then slowly peeling it off and unclogging your pores. As much as I love a good sheet mask, I have to admit that peel-off masks are my go-to when I want an extra squeaky clean feeling.
Although experts have mixed thoughts about whether peel-off masks actually remove blackheads, if you don't use them too often, they're a great addition to your beauty routine. Just make sure you're reading the directions properly, and you'll be in business.
Although I love the luxe packaging and great smells of high-end beauty products, I have to admit that drugstore products are more up my alley in terms of budget right now. These nine drugstore options I've rounded up are affordable (they range from $2.99 to $15.99), and they have various ingredients and formulations depending on what you want to get from the mask. Here are all the options.
