What we say:
Once a week I like to set aside time to treat my skin to a deep cleanse with one of my favourite face masks. In the last year or so I have been on the hunt for the perfect face mask, so I have tried several different with the hopes that they could meet all my “face mask requirements.”
While in Europe I found a face mask I had wanted to try since hearing about it and as luck would have it, it is as close to perfect as a face mask can get! Alas, I am unable to purchase it locally, so my search continues.
Recently I have been hearing a bit of chatter about the new Body Shop Seaweed Ionic Clay Mask so I decided to give it a go. My skin is going through a rather oily phase, so I figured this mask would be perfect for drawing out any impurities and controlling sebum.
It should also be known that it is the first clay mask that I have tried; boy, was I in for a surprise! I applied the clay mask to my face and set a timer for ten minutes as suggested on the bottle. After a few minutes I could feel the mask drying and as it dried my skin started to feel really tight. Nonetheless I left the mask on for the full ten minutes before removing it. Once removed my skin felt extremely clean and almost plumped up. It was however still slightly tight, but after toning and applying a moisturiser the tightness subsided.
The mask promises to draw impurities from the pores and it definitely did that! The morning after applying the facemask I had a few blemishes on my chin, but thankfully they disappeared soon after. I’m not sure if the blemishes were a reaction to the facemask or if it was just working it’s magic.
I will definitely use it again. If you suffer from oily skin and you are in the market for a new face mask this one is a good contender.
