Reviewed: The Best Face Masks For Blemished Skin

Updated on September 18, 2010

Having suffered from nasty blemishes since I was in my mid-teens, I'm constantly on the look-out for products that help to clear up my breakouts. On top of my usual cleansing routine, I like to use face masks as part of my skincare routine so here are some of my top tips for good face mask buys.

NOTE: As I'm based in the UK, these face masks are probably more readily available there in the US but they're available on US Amazon so any American readers would still be able to get hold of them if they wanted to.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Face Mask

This face mask is specifically designed for blemished skin. It's a bit drying but on the plus side, it does help to dry out blemishes so that they are less prominent and clear up more quickly. I use it in conjunction with skincare products from the same range and can vouch for the fact that it does what it claims to. If you suffer from stubborn breakouts that take a while to go away on their own accord, this face mask gets the thumbs-up from me. 

Montagne Jeunesse Anti-Stress Mud Masque

This is a new discovery of mine but I've been impressed with the results. It has the added benefit of having anti-stress properties, but the main reason I bought is due to it being deep cleansing. If I'm using face masks for a specific purpose (like helping to improve the look and feel of my skin in relation to blemishes), I like to feel that there is some deep cleansing involved to draw out impurities or get rid of excess oil. This does a good job on that front and I'm pleased to say that it also tackled a stubborn blackhead or two on my cheeks that have been resistant to any attempt to destroy them so I can definitely recommend this face mask!

Biore Self-Heating Face Mask

I'm a big fan of using face masks to draw out impurities that could otherwise lead to blemishes, and I usually feel that self-heating face masks are good for helping them. Having used a few self-heating face masks from other brands that didn't impress me much, I came across this Biore offering. It seems to do a great job of getting rid of excess oil, although it didn't have the desired effect on blackheads, which is another area that I hoped the heating element would work wonders for.
