So as I promised in my Mario Badescu review here is my review for a mask which I think is pretty great for congested skin!
Don't I look damn sexy wearing it!
So what does it claim?
Activated charcoal acts like a magnet to draw out deep-dwelling pore-cloggers. White China clay absorbs environmental toxins. Lecithin dissolves impurities.
What I Think
Its funny I've just read that description now & I actually can't think of a better way to describe it other than it feels like a magnet on your skin, when you apply it you feel your skin throbbing, not a stinging sensation that I've had from other clay masks but it feels like the rubbish in your skin is being pulled out.
This mask gives you instant gratification once you remove the dried mask (which isn't hard to remove like some clay masks) your skin does look instantly clearer, it certainly removes the blackheads from my nose, it could make you have a few spots a couple of days later only because its drawing all the impurities out. The smell is hard to place, not offensive at all it basically smells like any other charcoal mask so wont choke you to death like the other Origins one I have that smells like farts!
I use this every so often when I think my skin needs a clearing so a couple of times a month but if you do have problem skin once a week would do the trick i'm sure, i'm just scared of it drying out my skin. I'm very paranoid like that.
But skin care is my passion & love so if you've got any questions, requests for reviews (i'll happily buy stuff) then let me know & i'll get on it!
Thanks for reading & sorry for subjecting you to that picture of me, I look wrong without mascara!
