$2 indulgences – my top 5 affordable sheet masks


I love sheet masks, and I love them more when they work well AND are affordable – as in under $2/sheet affordable. Yes, these sheet masks totally exist and no, you definitely should not have to pay $30 a sheet, unless you’re ballin’ like that…

I'll be honest, I'm too lazy for a face mask. I prefer those that you leave on for the night and wash off in the morning. But I still buy them and use them when I have the time :D These are really nice recommendations, the only thing I've used from this list is the Klairs.

I actually find sheet masks the easiest to use since you don't have to wash them off, and I usually just wear them while watching TV or reading before bed :) And they come in so many great varieties! :D

When i apply foundation my t zone gets very patchy/blotchy, whether i use a beauty blender or brush it just clings onto dry patches. I used the klairs toner, Cosrx aha, snail mucin 97, Argan oil, and 97% aloe Vera gel. My whole skin looks fine, its just my t zone that "dehydrated" if I must say. Is there anything that you suggest. Serum? Ampoules?

Hmm, you can try exfoliating using a peeling gel (I really like the Cure Natural Aqua Gel, review here) once a week or every 2 weeks to gently remove any dead skin. I also noticed that you don't have an occlusive in your routine, so you might want to add a cream moisturizer at the end to seal in the hydration.

Is it really sad that I'm not into face masks? Whether sheet or facial masks, I'm clearly averse to anything that adds an extra step or two in my routine haha!

Aww, well at least you'll save lots of money in the long run because even these affordable sheet masks can get expensive if you use them regularly! It all comes down to what works best with our skin, so I totally understand that sheet masks aren't for everyone :)

Great choice of sheetmasks my dear! I love to try out the My Beauty Diaray (never ever used a sheetmasks of them, shame on me) and the Dear Honey ( because everything related with bees is life). It is funny taht we think the same about the Klairs sheetmasks, it works great but just a booo that the cotton is so thick. I can't leave it for a long time because I start to get annoyed and also i think the thick cotton also dries quicker than the other materials that sheetmasks have. Thanks for sharing your tops!

Thank you An! Good point about the cotton drying quicker, it also feels like it has less essence to begin with (or is it just me)? If they can only switch to a thinner material it'd be perfect!

Yes to $2 sheet masks! While I love indulging in $5+ sheet masks, they're simply not economical. Also my wallet can only handle so much (I may just have a stash of fancy sheet masks lying around because I don't have the heart to use them ????).

I actually have quite a few Moksha and Klairs masks that I never got to, so after reading your post I'm really excited to give them a try! Another affordable sheet mask I really like is the Papa Recipe Bombee Honey Mask- it leaves my skin extremely well moisturized and glowy. Also it smells like honey! ????

Totally agree Gloria! The cost of sheet masking can really add up, so if I can find more affordable alternatives I'll definitely stick to those! :P

I actually haven't tried the other Moksha flavors, though I'm definitely curious now! The Papa Recipe mask sounds lovely, but I recall them being on the pricier end? If they're in the $2 I'd love to try them out!
