Updated 08/20/18

We love a good DIY mask as much as the next beauty fiend, but going through the rigamarole of mixing and blending up obscure ingredients can be a process. Sometimes you feel like channeling your inner Pinterest beauty guru in the kitchen, and other times you'd rather just slap on a premade mask, sip your wine, and call it a day. That's where these natural face masks come in. They're formulated with cutting-edge botanicals as well as tried-and-true natural ingredients, so you can feel good about putting them on your face.
