Tried and Tested: 5 Face Masks for Men

Categories : Skincare

Yeah, they look and feel weird, but trust us on this one, guys: you need these face masks for men. They’ll stop breakouts, control oil, keep those wrinkles away, and help you wake up with incredible skin. That’s worth a little sticky clay on your fingers, right?

Kiehl’s Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masks

 Have you ever watched a Dr. Pimple Popper video? Pores can hide all sorts of gunk, which can fester underneath the surface until it gets infected and turns into acne.

This deep pore cleansing mask sucks out the dirt and oil and can make your pores look smaller. And unlike other clay masks, you can use it even if you have dry or normal skin. It’s got aloe to moisturize and soothe irritation.  For the extra cool factor: the clay is sourced from the Amazon River.

Face Mask Review: “I’m usually just a soap-and-shampoo kind of guy, but my girlfriend got me this and I have to say — it’s pretty good. Skin feels really clean and the pores on my nose look smaller.”

The Body Shop Japanese Matcha Tea Pollution Clearing Mask

 Oil and dirt isn’t the only thing sitting on your skin. City pollutants and other impurities (including hairstyling residue on your forehead) can clog your pores and damage your skin. In fact, these chemicals can be just as ageing as sun exposure!

This face mask purifies and exfoliates from that toxic chemical build-up. It contains match green tea, aloe vera, and dandelion extract.  You’ll also like that cooling, tingly sensation as it dries on your face.

Face Mask Review: “Really like this. I like golfing and tennis so I get sunburned or sensitive from the sun. This makes my skin feel better, and I don’t have as many blackheads as before.”

Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Colour Mask

If you’re the type of who thinks face masks for men are an annoying extra step, then this one’s for you. One day a week, just skip cleansing and use this two-in-one mask instead. It’s one of the most popular products in South Korea, and they have pretty high standards for skincare.

Face Mask Review: “This is actually my wife’s, but I use it too. It dries quickly and it doesn’t flake all over the place, which is why I like it more than the other clay masks she’s made me try.”

Lush Mask of Magnaminty

If you love really minty, tingly products then get this refreshing face mask for men. It’s got  peppermint, kaolin, and scrubby adzuki beans – a winner combination that kills acne-causing bacteria, exfoliates dead skin cells, brightens your skin, and feels extra clean and invigorating.

Face Mask Review: “Really like this mask. It feels good, and my face feels really clean. I have very oily skin that can feel like a frying pan on a hot day. But this fixes it really fast.”

Erno Laszlo  Hydra-Therapy Memory Sleep Mask

Is your skin feeling a little drier than usual? This overnight mask soaks it in nutrients and moisture from “smart hydrators” that have been sourced from the desert, ocean and mountains. You’ll wake up with fresh, healthy-looking skin.

Face Mask Review: “I never paid attention to my skin until about a year ago. So it’s really dry, and I have lines on my forehead. Started using creams and this mask, too. Saw a big improvement. I also like how I don’t have to wash it off. I can just put it on and sleep.”
