I don’t feel like a 100% silk face mask is all that common in the Netherlands. I’ve been looking around to buy one here in Amsterdam and most of what I found had been satin polyester. Or, it’s 100% silk on the outside, but lined with other materials like cotton or worse, polyester.
I’m not an expert, but I just feel like if it’s not worth it if the lining isn’t 100% silk. The whole reason why I’m looking for a 100% silk face mask is because I read that silk minimizes friction and irritation on your face whilst wearing a mask. Without an inner silk lining, I might as well stick to the regular disposable masks or cotton masks.
If you’re looking to learn more about silk masks, I totally recommend that you read Zee Krstic’s and Lexie Sachs’ article on GH. They wrote an informative piece on silk masks and they have great recommendations for silk masks in the US. Link to the article here.
Just as a side-note, I know that there are tons of silk face masks available but, truthfully, I’m not super convinced by some of the stores which do sell them. I saw some reviews which are a bit questionable and definitely put me off. I’m not claiming to be an expert here. But, the list I’ve compiled below is taking into account the general reviews I can find and my general perception of a ‘trustworthy’ brand/store.
I hope this helps!

1. Cult Beauty
I’m a bit biased cause I love Cult Beauty and I trust them 1000%. But, I do think they offer a great selection of stuff. I was really happy that I found this 100% silk face mask (which is available in the Netherlands!) and I immediately ordered it. My order has been shipped and it should be arriving sometime next week. I’ll update this when I’ve actually tried it out in person.
Composition: 100% silk on each side!
Price: varies, starting at 20€ per piece.
A lot of influencers rave about this brand. I have personally not tried them myself, but I’ve gone through the reviews on Trustpilot and it seems to be relatively positive.
I like how Lilysilk bundles up the facemasks and can sell it at a discount if you buy more. Seems quite economical and good if you’re buying for multiple people.
Composition: 100% 19 Momme Mulberry Silk
I feel like Wolford is a super trustworthy brand when it comes to basics and key-items for layering. I think their level of quality will also show on their face masks. It’s definitely not a bad option for a 100% silk face mask which you can get in the Netherlands.
Composition: 100% silk
4. 8 other reasons
This is a super cute option if you’re into prints. I’m also a huge fan of the blue set, mainly the navy one and the light blue one. Unfortunately, the lining of this of this mask is 94% silk and 6% spandex. I’m not sure if that 6% spandex defeats the purpose of finding a 100% silk face mask. But, if you really don’t mind, this is a pretty cute option to try.
Composition: Self: 100% silk / Lining: 94% silk, 6% spandex
