Each of these will target a variety of skin issues, helping you get the flawless complexion you've always wanted. No matter how strange these masks might sound, I totally recommend giving each of them a try. I don't think you'll be sorry.

1 Sweet Sin Chocolate Face Mask

First things first: This mask looks exactly like chocolate mousse. But slap it on your face, and reap the benefits from antioxidants and essential minerals like the magnesium, calcium and iron found in raw cacao powder.

2 Etude House Bubble Tea Sleeping Pack Black Tea

This looks exactly like bubble tea — good enough on it's own — but it's also so much fun to use. Ladle out some gel and a bubble, then pop it, mix and apply. The brand claims black tea smooths elasticity, and as a bonus, just looking at it is a stress reliever.

This mask is as fun to use it is packed with bonafides. Relying on everyone's favorite manuka honey, propolis and royal jelly make for a moisturizing, bacteria-nuking cocktail. And it warms!! Unclear why, but I love it.

This compact l'il buddy relies on charcoal to draw out dirt, coconut oil to reduce redness and aloe to heal and treat pimples. Those, and water, are literally the only ingredients, so rest assured you're getting a streamlined formula.

Dr Jart, skin, product, lotion, cream,Dr. Jart+ Dermaclear Trans-Foam Clay in Moisturizing Pink, $15, Sephora

Clay, yes — but clay that foams, hydrating while cleaning pores and exfoliating skin. In general I side-eye masks that claim to double up as cleansers — who would waste precious mask product on thirty seconds of cleansing?! — but the added bonus here also ups the convenience.

6 Pure Smile Art Mask

Listen. I wouldn't care if this mask did anything at all (although it does, with green tea, collagen, hyaluronic acid, and Vitamin E extract). I just want to stare at it, for hours.

According to the brand's description, this was "inspired by the Indian Haldi ceremony, a pre-wedding tradition in which a homemade turmeric paste is applied to the bride and groom for glowing skin on their wedding day." Turmeric doesn't kid around, so color me intrigued.

This fluff-meister supreme goes right up against marshmallow fluff for best texture in the world, while the albumin-enriched egg white extract sucks dirt from pores.

Also drawing on cocoa, the Moisture Mask changes in color as cocoa-enriched microcapsules hydrate, firm and brighten. It also smells like chocolate, which is very necessary information.

Just in concept, modeling masks are pretty fun. Add water, mix it up and peel off for that ultra-satisfying feeling. Beyond the visceral pleasure, the powder keeps ingredients stable until use, while the brand claims the formula soothes irritations and strengthens skin's moisture barrier.

11 Pacifica Vegan Probiotic & Spice Mask

Pacifica's extract-packed formula keeps the ingredient list lean, with Ayuvedic herbs, probiotics, and coconut water to decongest and depuff skin. They say black pepper creates heat to loosen impurities, blackheads and blemishes while ginger stimulates skin, and based on the preponderance of probiotics in beauty coming up, this is one to try.

12 Skederm Snail Jelly Face Mask

It might sound pretty weird, but this mask will do wonders for your skin. Nutrients found in the secretions from a snail are great for hydrating and nourishing your skin. Don't worry - it's not as gross as it sounds.

14 Moritaya Tofu Yogurt Mask Pack

Is it tofu? Is it yogurt? No need to choose, and throw in honey and royal jelly for good measure. Abundant in soy isoflavones, the brand says the mask pack "stimulates cellular renewal, while replenishing moisture and nutrients to skin for smooth, bright skin like a freshly peeled egg." That's what I want!

15 Origins By All Greens Foaming Deep Cleansing Mask

product, lotion, deodorant, ORIGINS, All,Origins By All Greens Foaming Deep Cleansing Mask, $36, Sephora

This juicy-smelling mask comes into the ring with a highly pleasing green cream texture, then bubbles up into a foam on your face while "drawing out dirt, debris, pollutants," according to the brand. They say it was inspired by detox juicing cleanses — thus the green tea, spirulina, and spinach — and despite that seeming ridic, it really does make my skin look immediately brighter.

16 Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask

skin, product, cream, cream, food,Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask, $10,

I'll be honest, the name doesn't do much for this guy. But it bubbles up massively ( here's the image search) combining clay's standard pore-clearing benefits with the most fun you can have with bubbling facial substances.

Whichever you choose, go forth. Get weird with your mask self.
