Today I will talk about this mask which I am kind of addicted to... It contains two different masks : a very liquidy black mud which purifies the skin and a white paste (it feels a bit sticky) which will perfect your skin radiance while soothing it too.
What do I think about it? If I try to be fully honest, the whole ritual is a bit too much for me. You have to massage the black mud for 5 minutes, then rinse it and apply the white paste, massage again 2 minutes and finally let it set for about 10 minutes to get the maximum results. When I use it (once a week for serveral months now :) ) I just massage the mud on my face for about 3 minutes and that is it for the massage. I wait two more minutes, rinse, put on the white one and 10 minutes later rinse it off. That's it!
Clearly enough, I can feel that my skin is squeezing clean after that! It looks litteraly plump... Does it help with blackheads? Not really, sorry to say that, but in my opinion nothing apart from manual removal works on these awful pimples!
Does it work? I will say yes, the results are really OK. Moreover the packaging is definitely gorgeous even if it is plastic made (it goes against the natural remedies purpose of the product but I don't really care). It looks very nice in my bathroom :))). For people who have germ phobia, it comes with a little spatula to scoop out the masks. It does contain a lot of product so it will last a really long time. I got mine for quite a while now and there is still a lot left. All in all, I will say you have enough product for 6 months based on a weekly use.
Do I recommend it? Yes, I am hooked, by the all-in-one aspect of this mask both purifying and glowing effect. It is meant to be used by any skin type but I would recommend not to do the whole massage sequence as it tends to irritate a bit the skin (perhaps I massage my face too strongly?). In this case, the purifying action will be too intense and can cause small zits on your most sensitive facial area (it happens to me only once on my cheeks over more than ten uses). A 3 minutes massage with the black mud will give the exact same results without irritating.
Prix : 49€ by Sephora
I have two backups of this mask. I know I am a real freak! Before I forget, they do not have any kind of smell which I really like. And a last piece of advice if you go out and buy, use a old towel or washcloth to remove the masks as some of mine get strongly stained.
That's all for today.
See ya :)
