Unbelievable High End Face Mask Dupes

When it comes to skincare it can be costly, which is why when it comes to the "extras" my skin doesn't necessarily need I prefer to save money.

This is where face mask dupes come in! Because in general, I believe whatever the cost of a face mask it always feels like a pampering treat but imagine one that actually costs very little but feels like a much more expensive face mask - it's a total win!

Below you will find more than enough face mask dupe suggestions that not only feel like the real deal but act it as well. I've also made sure that all skin types have been catered for, so you will find face mask dupes for hydrated, oily, sensitive skin and more here.

SPLURGE: Glamglow Thirstymud Hydrating Treatment
SAVE: Skinfood Freshmade Coconut Face Mask (SAVE £ 31)

Glamglow has to be the most popular face mask brand worldwide and for good reason! While their clay masks are the most popular Thirstymud is loved by many as it offers deep hydration without making the skin feel heavy or blocking pores. 

The light gel-like texture comes in an interesting nude colour with a fresh coconut scent that gives instant uplifting summer vibes and can be used as a wash-off mask (or left on overnight) or moisturiser for those with drier skin. 

While the dupe for this mask, Skinfood Freshmade Coconut Face Mask, doesn't come in the same nude shade (although they both apply translucently) it does have a very similar texture making it ideal as a mask and moisturiser much like Thristymud! 

It's also very similar in scent, not many face masks are coconut scented after all, and as it's a Korean skincare line you know you are getting a quality product that will do the job - in this care, hydrating the skin. 

If you are looking for a dupe for Glamglow Thirstymud or you simply want a comfortable hydration face mask then this is definitely the one. 

SPLURGE: Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask 
SAVE: Andalou Pumpkin Honey Glycolic Mask (Save £45)

If there's a face mask with cult status then it's the Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask, but at £55 it doesn't come cheap! 

Why is it loved? Well I think it is partly down to the glorious pumpkin pie scent, a lotta people love pumpkin, and the fact it's a good all-round exfoliating mask. But as there are a lot of enzyme masks on the market I kind of think it's more to do with the look and scent of the product. 

But that's not to say that this mask doesn't deliver, because it certainly does with mass positive reviews on every website it's stocked on. With customers saying the gooey mask gives a tingle yet leaves their face looking brighter and much smoother and softer. 

However, there is a similar offering with the Andalou Pumpkin Honey Glycolic Mask at only £9.99, which is sweeter thanks to the honey (FYI: It's also organic!). Andalou is also an 'under the radar' skincare brand loved by skincare fanatic Trinny Woodall.

While the mask is less on the gritty side (it doesn't contain aluminium oxide crystals like the PTR offering) it has a similar gloopy texture that gives a little tingle to the skin. It also offers the same exfoliating benefits, removing dead skin cells for improved skin texture and an overall brighter look. 

Whether like me you simply fancy trying out an autumnal seeming face mask or want something to exfoliate and renew the skin then this budget under £10 mask seems pretty great to me! 

SPLURGE: Dior Hydra Life Glow Better Fresh Jelly Mask 
SAVE: Vichy Double Glow Peel Mask (Save £26)

Enter a scrub, peel and face mask in one with Dior's extra long titled face mask! At £40+ this is another luxury mask that comes in a jelly yet gritty consistency packed full of small apricot seeds for extra physical exfoliation. 

It does look a nice mask, however, a very similar looking mask both in look, description and texture is Vichy's Double Glow Peel Mask. This is also a unique gritty gel/jelly consistency but instead of apricot seeds contains micro volcanic rock for that physical exfoliation as you apply it. 

I should also point out both masks are perfect for if you are in a rush as you leave both on for no longer than 3-5 minutes.

Both masks leave the skin looking and feeling fresh and well exfoliated. Personally, I love the Vichy face mask as it chemically and manually exfoliates the skin leaving it feeling so so smooth. A great dupe here! 

SPLURGE: Fresh Rose Face Mas
SAVE: Nature Republic Real Rose Petal Face Mask (Save £40)

One of my most favourite face masks to apply when I want my skin to feel fresh and soft is the Fresh Rose Face Mask as the watery gel real rose petal consistency sits on the skin without drying to leave behind the freshest softest skin ever. 

I also find it's a great mask for using after a clay-based mask that has dried out my skin or if my skin is feeling tight or a little angry - the rose really does help to calm it down. 

However at £52 for 100ml this is one luxury skincare item. But thankfully I've found a really amazing alternative with Korean skincare find - Nature Republic Rose Petal Face Mask. Not only is the jar similar, but the entire mask range dupes a few other Fresh masks so I'm pretty certain it was their intention to create a similar face mask to that of the Fresh Rose Mask. 

The dupe face mask is very similar in texture, looking watery yet gel-like and smelling of natural fresh roses thanks to the real rose petals. It also doesn't dry down but sits on the skin for a soothing/cooling effect. 

While I haven't tried this dupe I'm almost certain that is will give similar soothing and hydrating results due to the masks consistency. Definitely one to try if you have ever lusted after the Fresh Rose Face Mask!  

SPLURGE: Glamglow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment
SAVE: Lacura Exfoliating Mud Mask - in-store (Save £35)

Described as a 10-minute 'facial-in-a-jar' Glamglow Youthmud isn't for the faint-hearted. It packs some punch working as a clay-based mask while exfoliating the skin. And while I do adore this product for some deep pore cleansing it is an eye-watering £42 for a 50g jar. 

But thankfully the queen of supermarket dupes, Aldi, have us covered with a £5.99 budget alternative that is such a good dupe that I decided I needed to write an entire blog post about it -  Lacura Mudmask Glamglow dupe review.

Not only do these two product look and feel very similar on the skin, they have a lot of the same ingredients - Lacura at Aldi know what they are doing. So if you have ever fancied trying Glamglow Youthmud I highly recommend saving your money and hunting down the Lacure Exfoliating Mud Mask dupe.

If you live outside of the UK I have another dupe alternative for you. The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask, which isn't as cheap at £17 but is a wonderful face mask that is oh so similar to the Youthmud treatment mask. 

SPLURGE: Farmacy Honey Potion Hydration Mask
SAVE: The Body Shop Ethiopian Honey Deep Nourishing Mask (Save £19)

If you are after a soothing hydration mask then you may have come across Farmacy's Honey Potion; a gloopy natural honey mask perfect for dry skin. 

While the application of this mask hasn't been duped before, you apply it and then massage it in, turning it into a sticky cream consistency, I personally think it doesn't effect how the mask works and it's more about the honey formula here. 

Which is why I believe The Body Shop Ethiopian Honey Deep Nourishing Mask to be a good cheaper alternative. This runny sticky mask is similar in texture and while it doesn't come with a spatula I recommend applying it with a face mask brush or old foundation brush for an even application. 

Both masks are non-drying when on, giving a comfortable application time, and leave the skin feeling hydrated, smooth and plumper!

Let me know which face mask dupe you are most intrigued by? For me, it's the Andalou Pumpkin Honey Glycolic Mask as it seems fitting for this time of year and I do love to exfoliate with glycolic acid. 

It's also the face mask that offers the biggest saving! 

Fee xo.
