Your daily cleanser may be getting the job done, but just like our closets and homes, our skin also benefits from a deep clean every once and while. Cleansing masks reach deep down into skin to rid it of pore-clogging impurities like dirt and oil which often lead to breakouts and uneven complexions. Even better: These masks may be clay-based which can be drying, but their formulas are all infused with skin-conditioning ingredients like cocoa butter, aloe vera, and essential oils so skin feels smooth and never tight once they’re rinsed away. Think of the following seven masks as the skin care edition of your spring cleaning.
1. Origins By All Greens Foaming Deep Cleansing Mask
This is a selfie-worthy mask that combines the benefits of your favorite cleanser. Apply a layer of the liquid to your face and relax and let it foam before washing it off. Its formula includes clay to draw out deep impurities from the skin, while a superfood trio of green tea, spinach, and spirulina gently cleanses skin without leaving it parched.
Origins | $36
2. Tata Harper Purifying Mask

3. Kiehl's Rare Earth Pore Cleansing Masque

4. Sunday Riley Blue Moon Tranquility Cleansing Balm
No time to mask? No problem. Rather than sitting and letting a mask sink in, this balm gives skin an instant deep clean. Massage it onto skin and watch it turn milky as it wipes away makeup, pore-glogging dirt and oil, and moisturizes with a blend of essential oils, cocoa butter, and mimosa flower wax. On days when do you have time to spare, leave the balm on for 20 minutes to for extra plump and dewy skin.

5. Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask
