You know when you find a product, and you just wonder, 'why have I never found this before?'. Well this little gem is one of those products.
At least once a week, I love to treat my skin to a good ol' facemask. I picked this facemask up after seeing a few great reviews of it on blogs. I picked it up at the perfect time as my skin was going crazy. Dry patches here, blemishes there, super oily patches everywhere. Before reading Lauryn's review, I was considering splashing out on the clay mask from Origins, but instead I went for this little guy. Clay masks have been raved about by so many bloggers, they're some of the best masks out there for unclogging and deep cleansing the skin.
I picked this up for £2.59, an absolute bargain! The packaging is so cute and feels quite expensive because of the matte tube. In terms of the smell, you either love it, or you hate it. I personally love it but my mum absolutely hates it.
When you apply this mask, apart from looking like you've come from another planet, your face tingles slightly. Not a burning tingle, just a 'the facemask is getting to work' tingle. I've noticed that when I have it on, the areas that the impurities and dirt are being drawn out of, stay dark green/brown. I find this strangely fascinating and it just shows that the facemask is doing as promised.
Superdrug say for you to keep this mask on for 10-15 minutes, or until the mask goes stiff. I like to keep it on for 30 minutes but by the end of those 30 minutes, I can't even move my mouth. My only bug bear with this facemask is that it is really hard to wash off by just splashing water on your face. I tend to use a muslin cloth to remove it as all splashing water onto my face does is partially flood my bathroom.
Once it's been washed off, my face is left a little bit red, and you can see the outlines of where the mask was, but it feels AMAZING. So soft, radiant and I can see that my blemishes have reduced in size, considerably.
I am so happy with this facemask and I will be trying others from the same range as this one has impressed me so much. It literally does everything it says on the tube, and even more!
