The Best New Face Masks We've Tried in the Past Month—and They're All Under $50

I once had a dermatologist explain to me that if you're going to splurge on skincare, save your money on simple cleansers and face creams so you can spend the big bucks on special treatments with active ingredients—like face masks. I tend to heed this advice, especially because unwinding with a glass of wine, a Sharp Objects marathon, and a face mask feels infinitely fancier than washing and moisturizing my face. So I'm willing to shell out a little more dough on the experience. Depending on your budget, there is such a thing as too much of a splurge, though. Personally, I have a hard time justifying spending more than $50 on a face mask, which, as it turns out, is totally fine because there are so many products with effective ingredients and Instagram-worthy packaging that fall within that range.
