Love a good clay mask, but hate the way it makes you feel after? If you’re someone with dry skin, using a clay mask can often make your skin feel tight and uncomfortable after.

This is mostly due to the fact that clay masks don’t just soak up all the dirt and grime on your skin, but the oil and moisture too! While this makes it a great choice for people with oily skin out there, it often leaves dry skin feeling shrivelled up and tight.

But don’t go throwing out your clay masks just yet — we at DailyVanity have found 15 of the best clay masks that are guaranteed to keep your skin feeling fresh, clean, and best of all, hydrated!

1. Vichy Pore Purifying Clay Mask

Best Clay Masks Vichy

Vichy’s Pore Purifying Clay Mask is chock full of great ingredients that not only cling on to impurities and excess sebum from skin to remove it, but also reduces the appearance of your pores.

It contains mineralising thermal water which reinforces your skin’s natural moisture barrier, allowing your skin to feel refreshed and rejuvenated instead of dry and tight after use. Rejoice!

Vichy Pore Purifying Clay Mask is available at all Watsons outlets and Lazada. It retails for SGD39.

2. Too Cool For School Morocco Ghassoul Creamy Mousse Pack

Best Clay Masks Too Cool For School

Admittedly, this is more of a clay mousse than a mask but it works in the exact same way, all while keeping your skin nice and moisturised.

Press down on the nozzle to get some foam onto your hand, then slather it on like how you’d apply any regular clay mask. The mask dries down in ten minutes, giving you clean, bright skin after that doesn’t strip your skin or leave any lingering redness.

Bonus? The pump packaging is a lot more hygienic than dipping your fingers into a pot to scoop out your mask.
