THE ULTIMATE CLAY MASK
So, go get this mask. Absolute must. Blog post DONE! Jk.The Origins Original Skin Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay ($26) is, as the name suggests, a clay mask that is intended to clean your pores and exfoliate your skin, giving you the ultimate glow and a smooth finish to the skin.
The ingredient that goes into the mask that makes it so good is willowherb. Willowherb is a plant that gives rise to small pink flowers that are used for cosmetic and medical purposes. These flowers have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that come from the flavonoids, beta-sitosterol and ellagitannins in them. Because of these properties, willowherb is going to calm the skin and refine its texture, which makes it ideal for people with psoriasis, rosacea and eczema, or just about anybody who wants to diminish the appearance of pores, skin inflammations and redness. Willowherb also has antibacterial properties, so this will be great for people with acne. This mask will be good for all skin types, as it is not your typical clay mask in the sense that it will leave your skin feeling dry, but to the contrary, it will feel moisturized and bouncy after using it. For that reason, I think even people with dry skin will benefit from this product
This is intended to be used once or twice a week after cleansing your skin. However, I think that you can get away with using it more often if you so need to, as it is unbelievably gentle. What I do is I put it on all over my face avoiding the lips and eye area, and leave it for as long as I can, usually ranging from 10min to 1hr. To remove it, I just get my fingertips wet and massage my face for about two minutes very gently. This mask has exfoliating jojoba beads, which will help remove dead skin.
All in all, this is a great all-rounder face mask that does what it’s supposed to do, and it leaves your skin feeling like a baby’s b*tt.
