My All Time Favourite Face Mask
Oh my god! I have to tell you about my newest face mask, it is amazing! It is by far the best face mask I have ever used; Essano Rosehip Clarifying Clay Masque!
Lately my skin has been looking quite bad, I’ve broken out and all my pores are clogged and just not nice. So, what do you do when you want your skin to look and feel better? A face mask of course! Unfortunately, I’ve never really found one that works really well for my skin, they either irritate my skin, or are so light that they barely do anything. And since I don’t like spending heaps on products that I don’t know if they will be OK for my sensitive skin, I had just excepted that most face masks won’t do much for me. Until I bought this new gem.
I first started looking at the Essano skincare range a couple of months ago and have loved their hand cream and body lotion, they both work a treat without sending my eczema into overdrive or giving me any irritation at all. And as most of you will know, for those of us with sensitive skin, once we find a good brand that we don’t react to, we stick to that brand!
I had seen that they had the clay mask and wanted to try it but was still a little worried but once my skin broke out, I went a bought it to give it a shot. And let me tell you, it is amazing!
It works exactly as it says it does, draws out impurities in the skin, tightens the pores, moisturises and the skin and all together just makes your skin feel 100% better! Of course, I wasn’t expecting a miracle worker, it doesn’t say anything about blackheads, but it was able to lift a lot of the gunk in my skin out, and a lot of my blackheads are gone! Honestly, I was really surprised by the results, when I had it on, it didn’t feel like it was doing anything, you know with some face masks they say to expect a tingling sensation and that means its working, well you don’t feel anything with this mask. It just feels smooth and calming!
I absolutely love this face mask, and would most definitely recommend it, it’s not so strong that it will irritate your skin but it’s strong enough that it will draw out impurities, blackheads (some not all), and tighten your pores in only the first use! I’m just imagining how much clearer my skin is going to look after using this weekly!
Smell: There is a subtle rosy smell, but it isn’t strong at all
Feel: Smooth, thick and calming
Time: Not sure, I was doing stuff around the house and once it was dry, I took it off
Removal: Recommend face washer, I did half with just water and my hands which took a lot longer and the other half with a face washer. I think the face washer helped remove any of the impurities it pulled from the skin and was sitting on the surface
After: My skin is soft, moisturised, my pores are tighter and less visible, a lot of my blackheads are gone and other pimples and ‘impurities’ have decreased by a lot, my skin tone is more even, not as red as it normally is.
So, if you are after an amazing new face mask that isn’t expensive, it retails for $17 at Priceline, then I would recommend getting Essano’s Rosehip Clarifying Clay Masque! It is cruelty free and free of any parabens and other harsh chemicals! It really does work wonders, and leaves the skin feeling so much better! It is definitely going to be part of my regular skin care routine.
