My skin is feeling dehydrated and looking slightly flushed. It has also been 2 weeks since I’ve done a pore care routine, clogs and blackheads are a plenty. I’ve cleansed, exfoliated, and toned my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
Upon opening the outer lid, I was greeted with an inner seal. I really appreciate this seal as I’m assured that this product is fresh and uncontaminated.
I was a surprised to find a piece of thin cotton pad skewdly positioned atop the clay product. At first glace I thought it was mould, till sniffed and touched it.
Sporting a mint green color, the clay mask had a light herbal scent. It has a creamy smooth texture which made it very spreadable.
How to use:
- Apply a thick layer to dry skin.
- Gently massage product in. You’ll see the product turn from a clay into a foam.
- Wash off with lukewarm water.
- Use this once or twice weekly in place of your usual cleanser. It can also be used as a gentle exfoliator.
Fine bubbles started forming almost immediately upon application. I could hear faint fizzing noises and felt a slight ticklish sensation. After 5 mins, my face was covered in a blanket of fine bubbles that looked like a thin layer of sponge. I decided to let it sit for another 5 mins before gently massaging the mask into my skin with wet hands. After which, I splashed it with water to begin the rinsing process. There was a soapy feeling but it wasn’t stubborn to rinse off.
The greatest improvement I saw was to the brightness of my skin tone. The next greatest improvement I saw was to the cleanliness of my pores. My pores not only looked cleaner, they seemed to also have reduced in size, giving rise to a smoother looking skin texture. I appreciate the lack of additional redness to my skin, which usually accompanies a clay masking session. There was a slight drying sensation right after toweling off. I quickly followed up with a hydrating routine to prevent my dehydration-prone skin from tightening up.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
I love how effective yet gentle this clay mask is. I’ve not tried using this over makeup as a cleanser because I’m a sucker for double cleansing. But as a clay mask, I was mighty impressed and will continue to use this twice weekly to maintain the upkeep of my pores. Check out more Neogen reviews here.
Go be beautiful!
