Welcome to my post!
SOS Pure Rebalancing Clay Mask from Clarins. I have a mini pack of it. Yet, it was enough to use 10 times, that’s why my opinion about it is full and profound.
The mask formula is enriched with alpine willow herb, which is here for sebum control, that’s why the product is strictly for oily or combination skin type.
The consistency is creamy and it looks like a clay, scented with a fresh and herbal aroma.
It’s easy to distribute on my skin evenly. You can apply it over wet and damp skin, as you wish. The product doesn’t require skin cleansing before application.
My skin is mixed with problematic T-zone. Sometimes I’ve got acne and you can see acne scars. My cheeks are with enlarged pores, blackheads on my nose and reddening.
I leave it on for 5-10 minutes and at first, it brings me some tingling sensations. So, if your skin is sensitive or dry, you have to toss this product.
Within that time the formula doesn’t dry down on my skin and remains creamy hence it’s so easy to wash off.
Results: after the use of this mask I can feel how fresh my skin is. It so matte and smooth. My pores look narrower and red spots are less detectable. What’s more, my skin doesn’t feel tightened, however, I have to admit that my skin is more prone to be oily. The mask won’t cleanse your pores purely and it won’t erase your blackheads, of course. So I conclude that its cleansing properties are limited to being only superficial.
But the product has a major drawback. For such a moderate result one will have to splurge $34 for 75ml (2.3oz) for the full version of the product.
In a nutshell, there’s a plenty of other similar facial masks on the market today, which are more reasonably priced and more versatile (which aren’t strictly only for oily or combo skin types). So, there wasn’t any desire to buy the full-sized pack after testing this mini from me.
It’s only up to you to decide whether to splurge on this mask or not.
Thanks a million for your attention!
