VDL Beauty Pore Clay Mask, $42.

“The clay mask comes in a surprising gel texture which feels cool on the skin when applied. It dried quickly and was easy to rinse off. I used this on my partner with bigger pores and he woke up to smoother skin and visibly smaller pores.” – Jessica Tham

Laneige Mini Pore Water Clay Mask, $38.

“I’m always at the gym and when I perspire, my pores enlarge and trap dirt leading to clogged pores. After rinsing this lightweight mask off, my pores were tighter, and my skin was smoother and more hydrated." - Jasmine Danker

Fresh Umbrian Clay Mattifying Mask, $80.

“I really like the smell of this, and how soft and clean my face feels after using it. I can even see the absorbed oil from my pores on the clay mask when it dries. You can also use it as a spot treatment or on the entire face as a weekly detoxifying mask. I just wish it didn’t run out so fast. – Lian Mei Ting

Innisfree Super Volcanic Clay Mousse Mask, $29.

“Its buttery texture makes it easy to apply, and a little goes a long way. My pores appeared smaller and tighter, and my complexion was brighter after just one use. Unlike other clay masks that are drying on skin, I found this moisturising and ideal for my sensitive skin.” - Yeoh Mong Chin

Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Charcoal Mask, $50.

“This is great for days when my skin needs a deep cleanse. Its texture is quite light so I had to use a fair bit to get the mask to a certain thickness. But it dried in just five minutes and rinsed off easily. I didn’t see a visible difference in the size of my pores, but my congested pores were instantly unclogged.” – Jayne Tham
