Pinays Reveal The Best Face Masks For Oily Skin

On the lookout for your new favorite mask? Check this out!

With all the skin-loving benefits of a good face mask, it's almost an essential part of every skincare routine, whether maximalist (think Korean 10-step routine) or minimalist. All the more for us oily-skinned girls because we feel our skin needs special care, amirite? We wanted to come up with a list of tried-and-tested recos, so we asked Pinays with oily skin to share their go-to face masks. Check out the list below!

SHEET MASKS

Barulab 7 in 1 Black Clay Mask

"I became interested in trying Barulab’s products after stumbling upon their Instagram account. My current fave from the brand is their Black Clay Mask. Don’t be fooled by the ‘clay’ in the name—it’s a sheet mask that dries into a peel-off mask! Pretty cool, right? It deeply cleanses my skin but is very moisturizing at the same time. I use it once or twice a week." - Lesley Ann Guevarra

Dr. Morita Hyaluronic Acid Essence Mask

"I prefer sheet masks over other types of masks because they’re not as messy to use. I go for those with essences that aren’t too thick just because I feel they won’t suffocate my pores. I like using the Dr. Morita Hyaluronic Acid Essence Mask, which a friend gave me a sample of and [I] fell in love with. I use it about thrice a week." - Karen Pangan

Etude House 0.2 Therapy Air Mask Hyaluronic Acid

"Before I found out I was pregnant, I used the Etude House Hyaluronic Acid Mask. It hydrated and smoothened my skin minus the sticky feeling I usually got from other masks. I used it when I noticed my skin looking dull, around once or twice a week." - Ginyn Noble

Garnier Hydra Bomb Serum Mask Green Tea

"I'm lucky to have friends who are beauty and skincare junkies, so I get a lot of product recos from them. My current go-to mask is the Garnier Hydra Bomb Serum Mask Green Tea. I just love how hydrated and supple my face feels after using it, and it doesn't leave a sticky residue. I mask every weekend as my ultimate me-time activity."- Nats Presillas

LuLuLun Classic Moisturizing Mask

"I have tried LuLuLun masks before and loved the glowing effect on my skin. I searched for it during a family trip to Tokyo. I decided to go for the pink one because it helps balance oil-moisture levels on the skin. I really like how soft and glowy my skin looks after using it. It’s intended for daily use, but I prefer to put it on every other day. After cleansing and toning my skin, I apply the sheet mask and leave it on for 20 minutes. I press it on my face (to let the serum work its magic!) from time to time. I spread the extra serum on my hands and neck area so it doesn’t go to waste." - Nikki Porter

Mediheal Teatree Care Solution Essential Mask Ex

"I received the Mediheal Teatree Care Solution Essential Mask Ex as a gift. I like it because it doesn’t feel sticky on the face, plus BTS (!!!) endorses it. But if I had bought my first pack myself, I still would’ve gone for the tea tree oil variant since I heard the ingredient is good for oily skin. I used to use it once a week, but now I only use it once a month when my skin isn’t doing so well." - Patricia Constantino

Naruko Tea Tree Shine Control & Blemish Clear Mask

"I learned about the Naruko Tea Tree Shine Control & Blemish Clear Mask in a Reddit thread. I forgot how I ended up there since I don't usually visit the site, but I remember a lot of posters talking about how the product really helped control oil and mattify their faces. I was also intrigued by this mask because it features both activated carbon and tea tree [oil]—most skincare products only have one or the other. It feels very cool and refreshing upon application, and it tingles in a good way. I try to mask at least once a week, but admittedly, I usually only get to do so twice or thrice a month. The packaging says to leave it on for 10-15 minutes but I usually wait until it's dry before I take it off." - Paulina Paras

CLAY MASKS

Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Mask

"Definitely my fave is the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Mask, mainly because I can literally feel (and see) it cleaning my skin. Since I have oily skin and usually get random breakouts, I prefer skincare that noticeably does the job and cleans up all the gunk in my pores. I also love that this product is made of natural ingredients. I mix it with apple cider vinegar and usually mask once a week or on days when I can tell my skin needs some serious detox." - Nielli Martinez

"I used to love sheet masks, but I switched to clay because [it's less waste]! I first heard about the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Mask from my fave YouTube beauty vloggers, then a few months later the local community started talking about it as well and I knew I had to try it. I have PCOS so I virtually have acne forever, and I think the clay mask helps calm down the redness. I love it because it gives me that energizing feeling while it’s on, which lasts even after I wash it off. It’s also so fun to put on as well! I use it once a week lang because my skin is so sensitive. I mix it with water, apply with a clay mask brush (I just bought this from the grocery), and leave on for 15 minutes. I use it for my bacne too!" - Elora Que

Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask

"I was inclined to try the Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask because Innisfree is known as an eco-friendly brand (which is right up my alley), and I was curious because it’s a cult favorite in Korea. It’s so easy to use, it smells nice, and it does wonders in tightening and unclogging my pores. My skin feels a lot softer, too, and bonus points for that cooling sensation it gives! I use it once a week, at night, after washing my face. I apply it on my skin (except on my mouth and eyes, of course), leave it on to dry for 10 to 15 minutes, then rinse off with warm water." - Pauline Estrada

Natio Clay and Plant Face Mask Purifier

"My favorite face mask is the Clay and Plant Face Mask from Australian beauty brand Natio. My sister gave it to me as pasalubong. I instantly fell in love with it, so I bought it for myself on a trip to Australia. I steam my face with warm water first, then gently pat a pea-sized amount of the product on my T-zone. I sometimes put it all over my face when I believe my skin needs it. I leave it on for 10 to12 minutes then gently wipe it off with a damp towel. I wish they sold this here in the Philippines!" - Rainbow Sanchez

Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask

"I love using the Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask because it unclogs my pores and makes my face feel soft and clean after using it. I got to try a sample of the mask over three years ago, and I’ve been using it ever since. I usually apply this clay mask once a week, and I follow the suggested routine in the packaging: open pores with a warm, moist towel, layer on, allow to dry, and rinse well.” - Debbie Taylor

Origins Out of Trouble 10 Minute Mask

"I first learned about the brand when I received several Origins products as gifts, and I’ve been a fan of the brand ever since. I have oily, acne-prone skin, so when it’s that time of the month or when I notice small bumps on my face, I use the Origins Out of Trouble 10 Minute Mask. It feels so calming and it really soothes my skin, especially on the parts where my skin is breaking out. I use it once a week or every two weeks, depending on my skin’s condition. I sometimes even multi-mask with the Origins Original Skin Retexturizing Mask—I apply ‘Out of Trouble’ on my nose and chin, and ‘Original Skin’ on my cheeks and forehead." - Daryl Abarquez

SLEEPING PACK

COSRX Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask

“While searching for a sleeping mask, I stumbled upon the COSRX Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask. I was drawn to it because it contained rice extract, an ingredient I didn't commonly see in the market but felt was a top ~Asian beauty secret~. It was also a brightening mask, which I felt my skin needed because most of my products already targeted oil and acne. I apply it before going to bed, and I love how hydrated and supple my skin feels in the morning.” - Paulina Paras

Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Hydrating Mask

"I started watching skincare videos years ago and the Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Hydrating Mask would always be recommended by the beauty gurus I followed. It’s my fave because even though I have oily skin, I want to make sure my skin stays hydrated especially since I use AHAs and BHAs in my daily skincare routine. It also doesn’t feel super greasy and I wake up to plump, moisturized skin. I use it once a week as the last step of my nighttime skincare routine. It’s an overnight mask and it feels like a thick moisturizer, so it’s okay to sleep with it on.” - Chab Ocampo
