WE PUT CLAY FACE MASKS ON TRIAL
WHICH mask is muddy brilliant when it comes to purifying pores and smoothing skin?
Murad Blemish Control Clarifying Mask £38, Debenhams
This promises to draw out impurities and minimise breakouts and boy was I broken out when I started using it. And it really delivers. After a few days of use my hormonal spots had really calmed down. Wouldn’t recommend for regular use though if your skin is clear.
Talika Masque A L’Argile Rose Pink Clay Sheet Mask £12, beautybay.com
Less mess than a traditional charcoal mask in a jar or tube, this is convenient for days when your skin feels congested, and your pores need a good clear out, but you want little faff. Left my skin feeling smooth, and brighter looking.
Sanctuary Spa Diamond Dust Refining Scrub Mask £12, Boots
Using purifying French rose clay this promises to give skin and pores an intensive clean. It goes on in a thin layer, which you leave on for up to 15 minutes, then rinse off. It is not harsh at all and left my skin feeling squeaky clean and looking brighter.
Charlotte Tilbury Goddess Skin Clay Mask, £38, charlottetilbury.com
Who wouldn’t want goddess skin? Not sure I entirely got that but this stuff works absolute wonders on tired skin and helped reduce blemishes too. Win, win. It is not cheap but a little goes a long way and skin is genuinely soft and glowing in a matter of minutes.
