All my oily-skinned gals will know that nothing can beat a good face mask that sucks out the gunk and grease from the skin. Here is my list of the 5 best face masks for oily skin in India out of all the products that I have tried so far. Each one provides slightly different results and targets different problem areas that oily skin tends to suffer from. Read on to find out more!
1. MamaEarth C3 Face Mask
The MamaEarth C3 Face Mask is one of my all-time favourites because it is a multi-tasking mask that reduces acne, brightens the skin, and fades pigmentation within a few weeks (when used twice in a week). It contains effective ingredients such as charcoal, coffee, and clay and has a very affordable price point of INR 599 for a huge tub of 100ml (usually available on further discount on Amazon and Nykaa).

2. Plum Green Tea Clear Face Mask
The Plum Green Tea Clear Face Mask is loved by many because it is rich in anti-oxidants that brighten the skin while the clay-based formula sucks out the excess grease from the face. Some of the key ingredients of this mask are green tea, glycolic acid, and kaolin and bentonite clay. I will recommend this product to those with angry acne on the face because this one calms down the breakouts. It is also also quite affordable (INR 490 for 60gm) and is usually available at a great discount on Amazon. Click here to read my full review. Click here to buy.
3. Vya Naturals Turmeric Brightening Scrub
The Vya Naturals Turmeric Brightening Scrub is a powder-based scrub cum mask. You need to mix it with water, rose water or curd as per your preference and then apply the paste to your face for 10-15 minutes before scrubbing it off gently with warm water. This product contains milk extracts, besan, turmeric and sandalwood and is extremely reminiscent of the homemade ubtan. It adds a beautiful glow to the face and has a calming effect on the skin. In fact, this product can be used as a replacement for homemade ubtan for the Haldi ceremony of any brides to be 🙂 It is priced at INR 595 for 60 gms, and you can get an additional 10% off by using my code MR10 on the brand’s website.

4. Treat Natural Iced Rose Face Mask
The Iced Rose Face Mask from Treat Natural Luxurious Skincare is a very unique mask that cools down the skin while brightening it. It contains kaolin and pink clay along with nourishing ingredients such as rosehip oil and argan oil and has the beautiful scent of roses. It removes the grease from the skin without stripping it dry and adds a beautiful glow to the face. This mask is priced at INR 799 for 50gm of product but you can get a whopping 20% off by using my coupon code MRINALINI20 on Amazon! Click here to read my full review. Click here to buy!
5. Juicy Chemistry Tea Tree, Charcoal & Bentonite Clay Mask
Last but not the least, the Juicy Chemistry Tea Tree, Charcoal & Bentonite Clay mask is another powder-based mask that you need to mix with water to create a paste to apply to the face. This face mask is excellent for those with acne-prone skin who are looking for a mask that is effective but does not anger or irritate the breakouts any further. It is one of the gentlest charcoal mask that I have used but is very effective at shrinking acne and removing greasiness from the face while adding a subtle glow. It is priced at INR 450 for 25gm of product but you need only a tiny amount of product each time, which makes this mask quite affordable. Click here to read my full review. Click here to buy.
