|Superfacialist Face Mask|
So I’ve been testing out this clay based mask for a few weeks. I’ve mixed thoughts but overall I generally like it! (There’s a definite answer…)
This retails for £8.99 and I picked mine up at boots, but you can also purchase it directly from the SuperFacialist website. You get 125ml in this tube.
What it it says it does:
“Clear your skin of dirt, excessive oils and toxins which lead to breakouts with this wonder Clay Mask. It contains Salicylic Acid proven to help unclog congested skin and oil-absorbing Dead Sea Mud rich in magnesium, calcium, potassium and iron for the perfect detox facial at home. Avocado oil rich in Vitamins A, D and E with Acacia Honey further help skin rebalance itself to reveal a clearer, refreshed-looking complexion.”
I think it lives up to some of it’s claims, maybe not all of them – but then what product ever does! It is all dependent on your skin type too.
For me, I had a tingling sensation when I first applied it, then after about a minute that subsides. You leave it for 5 minutes in total. I have no irritation when I remove this mask – unless I use a face sponge (I was testing it out, don’t use a face sponge). It’s fine rinsing it with just water or a damp face cloth. If my skin is feeling sensitive, then this will cause slight irritation, but I go over my face with my Liz Earle Skin Boosting Toner and everything calms down again.
I think this is a nice brightening mask, it didn’t feel like a deep cleanse to be honest. On the tube it says, Tea Flower, Deep Clean, Pore Purifying Clay Mask. Nope. Not for me. It did help bring down any redness that I had surrounding spots. Unfortunately it brought up any spots much more, rather than reducing them – I’m aware that some masks work like this. I prefer the masks that just reduce the spot and make it vanish magically.
It has a nice thick consistency and I enjoyed the herbal scent that had a nice sweetness to it. Overall I think I would give this a 3/5. If something says it’s a deep clean, I expect a deep clean. I have some clogged pores around my mouth at the minute and this mask did nothing to improve them. It’s definitely a deeper clean than my normal double cleanse, but not that deep. I have heard this compared to Origins Charcoal mask and generally this wins. For me I would take Origins charcoal mask every time over this. The Origins mask gives my skin such a fantastic cleanse, it magics away those spots and leaves my skin feeling really clean.
I do still enjoy using this mask, but more as a brightening mask, not for deep cleaning. For that I have other masks. I’m not sure I would rush out to repurchase – mainly because I have other masks I prefer.
