Hello, makeup junkies!
Blemish-prone skin is all about me. I’ve used a small pile of different skin care products but many of them could barely give me any results. And finally, I have found a product that works for my skin 100%. And I want to tell you about it and I hope that it’ll heal your skin too.
About myself: 23 y.o.
Combo skin type, which is acne prone + I’m allergic to many things as well.
And now some product info:
Soothing natural clay-based mask helps heal blemishes, prevent breakouts and keep skin shine-free. Medicated formula goes deep to clean and unclog pores, rid skin of excess oil. In just 5 minutes, skin looks clearer, smoother, less blemish-troubled. Gentle, non-drying formula won't irritate skin. Oil free.
Made in Belgium
Size: 3.4 fl oz (100 ml)
It’s a typical tube for Clinique which is turquoise-green with white top and the branded logo and the name of the mask on it.
Inside you’ll find a clay mask of white color. The consistency of the product is gentle and reminds me of thick cream. It isn’t runny. The smell isn’t chemical, just like a regular clay mask with herbs.
I apply the mask with a thin layer over my skin with a brush. I use it once or twice a week, alternating it with other clay masks that I have.
Don’t apply it with a thick layer, otherwise, you can dry out your skin too much and never gain the desired results. Also, I’d like to advise you to use it regularly but not too often.
I can also apply this mask with dots over the blemishes and go to sleep. In the morning they won’t look so red and they’ll disappear quickly.
The mask goes a long way and I guess I’ll keep on using it a long time, given the 2 times a week application.
They recommend leaving it on for 5-10 minutes but I leave it for longer and wash off after 20-30 minutes of exposure. But I can’t recommend you do the same because your skin may become flaky then.
The product dries down quickly, within 5 minutes, I think. It’s also easy to wash off.
this is how the mask looks like when it's completely dried down
RESULTS OF USE:
The mask lightens up my blackheads and wipes off reddening. Thanks to its formula the blemishes disappear much quicker, literally within a couple of days. I use other products as well for these results of course.
If I apply it over my blemishes for several hours, I can see how nicely it diminishes them.
I can also see that my skin is more matte with it even for the next day too. My skin is so clean and fresh after this mask.
After using, my skin almost doesn’t break out and it’s a huge advantage of the formula.
In the end, we have: cleansing and mattifying effects.
Do I recommend this mask?
My verdict: I definitely do, if you have some skin problems this mask will never be too much for you! Even though the price is far from being affordable, it’s still worth the results. Besides, it goes a long way.
But I can’t recommend it to people with dry skin types. This mask may harm you and dry down your skin too much.
Thanks for reading my post, I hope you found it informative!
