My skin is never just dry, or just dull or just one thing, so I like to have a few different masks around to suit my skin's varied needs. Today I thought I'd share some of my favorite budget masks with you:

The Body Shop Warming Mineral Mask is a product I've just repurchased. Heating up on contact with wet skin, this mask gives a spa treatment feel, with a drugstore price tag (£10) Skin is left oil free, cleansed and soft, however this is maybe one to avoid if you already have dry skin. The ginger scent is subtle and soothing and you only have to leave this on for five minutes; perfect for busy girls.

Ok so another five minute, self heating, detoxing mask that I love is Sanctuary's 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask (£10). This one is a bit stickier in consistency than TBS's version, and smells a little earthy, but if you can get past that, it does wonders for your skin. I don't have very oily skin, but sometimes it can be prone to dullness, however, after a quick use of this, pores look smaller and skin looks brighter. Read a full review here.

Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask (£6.99) is very deep cleansing and best for those super oily skin days. I usually use this only on my t-zone, and it does a great job of removing excess oil and grime, and pores look reduced. This mask can leave skin feeling quite tight after use, but nothing a good moisturiser won't solve.

Good Things Five Minute Facial Mask is a product I've been using regularly recently, and something I mentioned here. For a bargain price of £5.99, this is a fantastic five minute face mask. Can anyone sense a theme here? I slap this on just before my shower and after rinsing off, my skin is left glowing all day. This isn't as cleansing as some of my other choices, but it does a good job for the price.

I initially thought that the Superfacialist Rose Intense Moisture Mask (£8.99) broke me out but then when I figured out it was another product I reintroduced it to my routine and now I can't be without it. I apply this once a week, usually when my skin is feeling particularly dry or in need of a pick me up. It's really different to any other masks I have in my collection; instead of deep cleansing it provides a moisture boost, leaving skin feeling super soft and hydrated. The scent is quite strong, but it actually smells of roses, not at all like that horrible fake rose smell, and it's a very soothing product.

What are your favourite masks from the drugstore? Will you be trying any of these masks?
