If you’ve found that cloth face masks often irritate your skin, these silk masks might be the solution.
Slip, the brand behind the popular anti-aging silk pillowcase, recently launched face masks made out of the same material. The reusable coverings are made from 100 percent mulberry silk (on both sides of the mask, according to the brand’s Instagram), along with an additional inner cotton layer. They feature a metal nose wire and adjustable earloops, plus they’re available in black and pink, as well as a muted leopard print and a cheeky lipstick pattern.
You can snag one for $39, but you’ll want to act fast: Ever since the Slip face masks landed on Nordstrom, they’ve already sold out multiple times.

The silk face masks are a great option for anyone that has sensitive skin. Not only is silk cooling and naturally hypoallergenic, but the material can help retain your skin’s moisture (as opposed to highly absorbent cotton). All of these benefits combined might ease any flare-ups or irritation caused by masks made out of other materials. Nordstrom reviewers who have tried Slip’s masks say they’re comfy, breathable, and feel “so luxurious.”
“It’s hard for me to wear any of the cloth masks and I felt like I was wasting using the disposable, so buying this silk face mask was my chance to find a great alternative — it’s amazing,” one shopper wrote. “I’ve gotten several compliments on the fabric, it’s easy to breath, [and] I don’t feel like I need to take it off for ‘a break.’ I’ve already washed it twice with a light detergent and let it air dry. Worth the investment!”
And if you want the total beauty treatment (since we could all use a little extra TLC these days), Slip’s pillowcases — which can help eliminate hair tangles and frizz — are also available at Nordstrom.
