The Best Peel-Off Masks for Gorgeous Skin


It's soo satisfying to lift away dead skin cells, debris, and excess oil in one gentle, swift motion. And while you might think you can only get this type of instant gratification by booking a facial peel from your dermatologist, a cheaper alternative exists: peel-off masks. 

There are many different face masks out there, from charcoal masks to sheet masks. There’s one designed for every skin type and skincare condition, from dryness to blackheads. Peel-off masks in particular are great for penetrating deep into clogged pores and absorbing oil like a magnet. They're also frequently used for stripping away breakout-causing bacteria and impurities that cloud the skin’s surface, leaving behind a fresh layer of clear, radiant skin.

Of course, since peel-off masks are so powerful, it's important to note that they're ideal for oily skin types or normal skin types, but they can be a bit harsh for those with sensitive skin or dry skin types. 

With this in mind, we decided to comb through the IPSY product arsenal to find the best peel-off masks according to Ipsters like you. Whether you're looking for a purifying face mask or a luminizing, hydrating one, there's a peel-off mask on this list for you. 

Continue reading below for our list of the best peel-off masks according to Ipsters, and discover the wonders of peel-off masks for yourself.

“The results were lovely.”


The moisturizing Purlisse Watermelon Energizing Marshmallow Peel Off Mask is an IPSY favorite for a reason. It smells heavenly and has the soft, decadent texture of marshmallow, while being totally vegan and cruelty-free. Infused with watermelon, blackberry, cranberry, and elderberry, it’s without a doubt the best face mask for fruit lovers–and it's "gooey and fun" to use, wrote one Ipster. Use it in the morning for a skin-energizing boost or at nighttime for a relaxing skin care indulgence. And, since it's so light, it's a great pick for sensitive skin–as one Ipster wrote, this face mask “was so lightweight I almost forgot to peel it off! The results were lovely.” Whether you have dry skin, oily skin, or any skin type in between, this hydrating face mask is sure to delight.

Ipsters love Hey Honey peel-off face masks so much, we had to include them twice on our list. This peel-off mask is one our top-ranking picks for a peel-off mask with anti-aging benefits. The combination of luminizing honey and skin tone-correcting copper leaves skin free of blemishes, fine lines, and totally radiant, while aloe vera adds a hydrating, moisturizing boost. But don’t just take our word for it: one Ipster wrote “I just used this for the first time and it is AMAZING! My pores look smaller, skin is less red with an even tone, and it feels so soft."
