This $10 Face Mask Revived My Skin After a Night of Margaritas and Mexican Food

  • The Inkey List has affordable products for low-maintenance beauty routines.

  • The brand's new Madecassoside Mask is meant to treat stressed and dehydrated skin.

  • One editor tried the product to see if it delivered on its promises.

In this economy, $10 can't get you much more than an oat milk latte with an added espresso shot or one month of a Netflix subscription. But if you're in the know in the beauty world, you understand $10 can get you far when it comes to The Inkey List products. The brand just launched its new Madecassoside Mask ($10) that promises to hydrate and strengthen your moisture barrier, so I decided to put those claims to the test after a night of drinking margaritas to see just how far $10 could really get my skin.

After all, there's nothing like a couple (or a lot) of margaritas to make your skin instantly hate you. After washing my face and not applying my nighttime moisturizer (oops), the skin on my body and my face felt as dry as my mouth. A couple of glasses of water later, I was feeling much better, but my skin had still not forgiven me for the previous night's sins.

I decided to try The Inkey List's new face mask to see if it could revive my skin and perhaps breathe some life into my morning routine. The product claims it can help relieve inflammation, redness, and itching thanks to an innovative cooling effect, which is exactly what I needed.
