Dermalogica Clay Mask Review
Since being formally diagnosed with adult acne last year, I've always been very careful with what I put on my skin. A lot of my face masks have found their way to the back and beyond of my cupboards but I think this one will be a keeper for sure, and by this one I'm talking about Dermalogica Charcoal Rescue Masque.
This mask contains activated charcoal powder which when used in a face mask will bind to and help pull out the dirt and excess oil in your pores making them less visible (because it's the dirt and oil that makes pores appear bigger). So as an acne sufferer this is like a miracle. The texture of this mask also helps exfoliate the skin and absorbs oil and toxins on and below the skin. Making your skin appear clearer and making it feel noticeable smoother and cleaner.
I've been using this mask over a couple of weeks and it has made a noticeable difference to my skin. My whiteheads are near enough gone and blackheads are a thing of the past. My skin used to become extremely dry because of my acne cream, which made it look dull and tired. Now I find if I need a bit of a pick me up, I reach for this mask to brighten my skin, it makes it look really fresh and incredibly smooth.
The texture of the mask is slighty 'gritty', due to the charcoal powder. Which is fine by me because it exfoliates so well. The mask dries well within around 10 minutes and washes off without a problem. The mask has an earthy smell to it but not unpleasant. Anything highly perfumed can irritate the skin on the face so I quite like the natural scent of this mask.
If you are an acne sufferer or suffer with excema or generally dry skin I would highly recommend this mask to you. It has boosted my confidence not having to worry as much about the appearance of my acne. Although this is not the cheapest product it is worth every penny and gets the job done exceptionally well. You can get it for yourself from Look Fantastic- here.
