5 Target Face Masks Under Five Dollars

Who doesn’t love a good face mask? I like to use them on weekend evenings, after the kids are asleep, while I’m chilling on the couch with the husband. They’re a great way to pamper yourself and take care of your skin at the same time. Dermatologists agree that face masks benefit your skin.

While I’d love to try out some higher end products like this:

Glamglow Supermud Face Mask
Supermud by Glamglow

or this:

Herbivore Botanicals Blue Tansy Face Mask
Blue Tansy by Herbivore Botanicals

the fact of it is that spending money on face masks just isn’t my greatest priority, budget-wise (I know, shocking, right?).

So in cases like these, I turn back to the one who will never let me down — of course you know I mean…Target.

Majestic, right?

I picked up these 5 face masks on a recent Target trip, and spent the last week trying one every evening, just to deliver these reviews to you (you’re so welcome, the pleasure was all mine!).

Clockwise from top left, the line-up:

Miss Spa Hydrate Facial Sheet Mask

Pretty Animalz Panda Calming Facials Sheet Mask

Miss Spa 24k Gold Radiance Mask

nügg Hydrating Face Mask 

Yes to Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal DIY Powder-to-Clay Mask


First up: the Hydrate mask from Miss Spa.

This one’s pretty straightforward. It’s easy to use, it smells nice, kind of floral. My skin felt happy and soft afterwards. At less than $2 a pop, this is one to go in your regular skincare rotation. 5/5

Next: the Panda Calming Sheet Mask from Pretty Animalz.

It’s cute, right? I’ll be honest it’s a little less cute once you’re wearing it. Some husbands (mine) may have done a double-take, and offered helpful comments like “What the actual hell,” and “That’s terrifying.” Sweet, right? I took pictures but…I decided you don’t want to see them. Also, this one didn’t smell that great. It did soften my skin some, but not enough to save my opinion otherwise. 2/5

Next up: the 24k Gold Radiance Mask from Miss Spa.

Miss Spa Gold Radiance Face Sheet Mask

I enjoyed this one. The gold was novel and pretty. It smelled lovely, it was easy to apply and pleasant to wear. My skin was moisturized and had a luminous glow afterwards. The only downside was that the gold gel stuff got on my bathroom sink and hasn’t come off yet, so I’d be careful not to get it on anything. All said, I’d use this one again. 4/5

Next up: the Hydrating Face Mask with Camellia Seed Oil from nügg.

Nugg Hydrating Face Mask with Camellia Seed Oil

I had never used a face mask that wasn’t a sheet mask before trying this one out. I was surprised how much I liked it — I enjoyed it more than the sheet masks really, because it didn’t shift around like the sheets do and I felt like I could get it into more places on my skin. There was a surprising amount in the little container — I had extra leftover. This one smelled the best of any of the masks I tried, and I think my skin was the softest after this. I’ll be using it again, and looking to try other masks by nügg. 5/5

And finally: the Detoxifying Charcoal DIY Powder-to-Clay Mask by Yes to Tomatoes.

This one was the most fun of the five. It comes with a little paper bowl, a packet of charcoal powder, and a spoon for mixing. The back of the package has suggestions for different food items to mix with the mask to supposedly achieve different benefits — yogurt for moisturizing, honey for smoothing, lemon for brightening, etc. I added a bit of honey and stirred my mask up. This one definitely took the longest to apply — I spent between five and ten minutes pasting the mixture onto my face. I let it sit for the longer suggested time of 20 minutes before rinsing. I really couldn’t tell any difference at all in my skin afterwards — it didn’t even feel particularly moisturized. But I did enjoy wearing it, so that counts for something maybe? 3/5

Paige Jones Bohemian Nursery

Yesterday I came across this nursery from Paige Jones, and I can’t. stop. looking. I mean, how perfect is that? And I don’t even mean just for a nursery, I mean for any room. I love literally every element of this room’s design. Now I’m setting out to DIY myself a hanging shelf, looking for a white chair like the one above, and trying to find the perfect vintage rug to go with all this boho love. Click through to see all the photos — seriously, the entire room is this good. This one’s getting bookmarked at the top of my list for design inspiration. Job well done Paige.

Kate La Vie Salted Passionfruit Margarita Cocktail

Well, as you no doubt know if you live on Earth, tonight is the season finale of Game of Thrones, the (objectively) best television show ever made. Dry your tears, it will be back next year for the (now you may cry) final four episodes. Tonight the husband and I will have a babysitter for the kiddos so we can join friends for a GoT finale party. We’ll be bringing these Salted Passionfruit Margaritas with us to win friends and influence people. Head over to Kate La Vie for the cocktail recipe.

Have a good one everybody, and don’t forget to turn off your curling iron before you leave the house.
