If you have dry skin type this might be too drying. You can use it as a multimasking option for your oily T-zone.

Price – 750/- for 50g

2. Innisfree Capsule Recipe Pack

These are super handy and convenient. Come in a small tub, you can use it a couple of times. There are many variants – green tea, aloe, tea tree and bija, honey etc. I’ve tried two variants – Volcanic Cluster and Rice.

Volcanic Cluster is similar to the charcoal purifying mask. Great for summers when sweat and dirt clogs your pores. Since this is a clay mask, it extracts gunk from your pores leaving your skin squeaky clean and fresh.

Rice variant is a sleeping pack and has a creamy consistency. You apply it at night after cleansing and toning your face, and the next morning just wash off your face. Use it a couple of times and you’ll feel your skin will softer and more radiant.

3. Himalaya Purifying Neem Face Pack

If you’re searching for an effective and affordable mud pack, then try out the Himalaya Neem face pack. It is enriched with the goodness of neem, turmeric, and multani mitti. Cleanses skin from deep within and unclogs pores. Dries off quickly and is easy to wash off as well. It does dry your skin so apply a generous amount of moisturizer.

Price – Rs. 70/- for 50g

4. Khadi Natural Sandal & Rose Herbal Face Pack

This comes in powder form and you can mix it with rosewater, aloe gel, or milk to make a smooth paste. It’s enriched with multani mitti, jojoba oil, and sandalwood oil, all natural ingredients which work very well for your skin.

My mom particularly likes this one a lot. It has helped her reduce blemishes and dark spots. Use it regularly to even out skin tone.

5. The Body Shop Chinese Ginseng and Rice Clarifying Polishing Mask

How can I not have a TBS product? And how I wish, TBS was paying me to say all this. This one doesn’t fall in the affordable category, but it’s worth the money.  If your skin is feeling and looking dull and lifeless, use this pack. It adds an instant glow. The combination of ginseng and rice works well to clarify and polish your skin. The mild exfoliating action makes skin soft and supple. Love it!

1. Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Pack

Goodness of neem needs no emphasis, so does this value for money product. It is gentle, yet deep cleanses and unclogs your pores. It is a purifying mud pack so if you have dry or very dry skin, stay away from this one. You could also use this for multi-masking in just your T-zone.

If you have acne prone skin, give this one a shot. You can use it in combination with Himalaya Neem Face Wash and Scrub for better results.

2. The Body Shop Tea Tree 3-in-1 Wash Scrub Mask

If you’re someone who has blemishes and acne prone skin, then this face mask can be that miracle product you’ve been looking for. Tea tree oil is known to be antibacterial and works great for blemish prone skin. It has a strong tea tree oil fragrance and a creamy texture. The micro-beads are tiny but they exfoliate well.

Can be used as a mask, scrub, or simply as face wash. It gently exfoliates leaving your skin squeaky clean. Use it for a natural glow when your skin looks dull or is feeling clogged.

My list of 5 best face packs in India would not be complete without a mention of Forest Essentials. Forest Essentials has different variants of ubtans. This particular variant is suitable for normal skin type.

You can use it as a scrub or as a mask. (This is the old packaging)

4. Patanjali Multani Mitti Face Pack 

The age old multani mitti has been popular among the royals and commoners alike. In its new avatar – Patanjali Multani Mitti Face Pack, it’s a fuss free, easy to use pack. Though effective for normal to oily skin, it can leave your skin feeling stretchy and dry, so make sure to use a moisturizer right after. Also if you are someone with sensitive skin, this can be harsh for your skin.

Price –60/- for 60g

5. Nature’s Essence Lacto Tan Clear

Getting rid of that pesky tan can be such a pain. This sun tan remover from Nature’s Essence has been quite effective for me. It is enriched with the goodness of milk and honey, bit highly moisturizing and nourishing for the skin. With its light creamy texture, it isn’t harsh on the skin at all.

It is gentle and suitable for all skin types. You can use it twice a week and the best part is it works wonders to remove tan not just from your face, but also legs, arms, neck, and back. Out of the 5 best packs for glowing skin, this is my personal favorite.

Price – 85/- for 40g
