I bought this a little while ago in a mini-haul and a few ladies suggested I should do a review on the masque, so here it is!
Before I get started, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas with friends, family, food and gifts! :)
This masque is a kaolin clay based mask. Ok, this means nothing to me, but from what I've figured out, it hardens on your face as it dries. My skin was being erratic and producing annoying breakouts - the big pimples that take weeks to go away so I hoped this would help.
I don't mind the smell, I can't describe it but it is pleasant enough. It feels super thick and lushious, it's really tempting to just shove my hands in the tub! I've never used any sort of facial masque before so I wasn't entirely sure how thick I should apply it on but I made sure my skin was totally covered. I'd recommend using this masque when you don't have company because it dries to a red-brown colour - I freaked myself out when I first realised this! Of course, you could neglect to tell your roomies and scare the crap out of them.
Look at the colour!
Once applied, it gives a cooling, tingling sensation which is not uncomfortable but quite refreshing. Over the next 10 minutes, it does begin to harden so it feels weird when you move your face.
Washing off is easy - warm water and gentle massaging does the trick. The end result is baby-soft, smooth skin that doesn't feel dry at all! I was amazed. My skin had not felt that good in months. That was one of the reasons I bought this; my skin was being unpredictable and cranky. What a good decision to pick this up! I've since also purchased their rosehip oil which I'm also really enjoying (I'll do a review, if anyone would like to hear my thoughts?) and my skin seems to be doing well so far. It does seem to 'purify' my skin quite thoroughly so I am using it 1-2 times a week. I haven't had any more of those awful pimples since using this, just the occasional minor pimple that disappears in a few days.
Should you buy it? If you want a mask that purifies your skin but doesn't strip it dry (like I have heard other masks do) then give this a go. Even though I am not experienced in the masque department, I am really happy with this product!
