    I've made similar masks using eggs and avocado? Something like that. It smelled awful and for me, it wasn't worth it because it dripped everywhere I've also tried oatmeal...it's messy.

    Does it even work? Like does it feel like it helps your skin or is it just a big mess to avoid!?

    A good one is just pure raw honey. Just smear it on, wait ten minutes, and steam it off with a hot cloth. It's naturally antibacterial, has natural antioxidants, and natural emollients -- i.e., holds moisture in your skin. Just make sure you use raw, not the stuff in the bear bottle!
