Skinceuticals Clarifying Clay Masque: HG Face Mask!

HELLO! I have been searching for a  really good  face mask for quite sometime now, but always try and steer clear of clay masks that dry and tighten as well as irritate my sensitive skin so when I received the Skinceuticals Clarifying Clay Masque, I wanted to try and see if it would soothe my irritated skin.

I have been using the Skinceuticals Clarifying Clay Masque for over two months now and I can't stress enough how lovely it is to use and how much of a pleasure it is to find a clay mask that is actually gentle enough to use on my sensitive skin! Even though  hydrating masks are my preferred choice as my skin is pretty much dry in some areas, I always feel  I need something extra to help clear and draw out impurities for a more deep cleanse that you get with clay masks.

Skinceuticals is different to other skincare brands beacause it's the skincare range specifically designed for a contemporary lifestyle and to offer a complete and intensive solution for serious skin problems. I've already tried their Hydrating B5 gel that I keep raving about how fantastic it is for everyday use!

The Skinceuticals Clarifying Clay Masque is superb especially if you have a sensitive skin type. Infact its so gentle that it could be used on any skin type!
The white clay is made up of natural earth clay with a hydroxy acid blend to decongest pores, lift impurities and oils, and exfoliate the skin. This mask is supposed to help improve the firmness and skin texture, unclog and tighten pores, control oil, and soothe irritated skin.

The website of Skinceuticals says the following about the Skinceuticals Clarifying Clay Masque -
"This non-drying masque combines kaolin and bentonite, the highest quality natural early clays, to decongest pores and lift impurities. Botanicals and minerals are added to help heal and calm the skin, while a 5% hydroxy acid blend gently exfoliates. Weekly use leaves skin feeling healthy and purified."

I really prefer the jar packaging as the products itself has a thick creamy texture so its really convenient to get the product out of the jar.

I use the Skinceuticals Clarifying Clay Masque once or in some rare cases twice a week. I prefer to take the product out using a spatula and layer a sufficient amount on my face and neck region. When applying the white mask, it spreads onto my skin like a dream and a little goes a long way! Another great thing about the Skinceuticals Clarifying Clay Masque is that it does not contain any synthetic fragnances, which indirectly acts as a source of skin irritation for many. I am supposed to relax for 10-15 minutes (as stated on the product), but it takes about 5-7 minutes to set completely. It rinses away very easily with warm water leaving my face clean, smooth and purified. Finally I apply a thin layer of my Skinceuticals hydrating B5 gel to seal in the moisture for a whole day long.
I think the Skinceuticals Clarifying Clay Masque is definitely going to become a summer all-time staple of mine.
Writing about this makes me actu­ally want to put it on tonight! Do you have any favorites for a clay based goodness for the skin?
