Let's face it, I get a bit of blemishes and mini pimples every now and then. If you follow my Twitter you probably get a few complaints when I'm stressed (ie. exam week, lacking sleep, etc) I get a few nasty pimples that just keep haunting me! And of course, being the white mice that I am, after trying epic fail products, I sometimes get break outs too.
It was actually my bf that introduced this mask to me. He gets blemishes a lot and this is apparently his lifesaver. For me, I only use this occasionally (went through 2 of 3 jars in the last 3 years) and only on problem areas and not my entire face. I find that it gets kinda dry if I use it on areas without blemishes and pimples.
When you apply this on your face, you get a tingly feeling and you can really feel it giving my skin a deep clean. Often, after popping a pimple (HORRIBLE thing to do to our skin, but Oh-So-Exhilarating), the mask helps soften that redness and also makes me less 3D (bumpy). I love that you can see the results almost immediately!
There's a strong scent of tea tree oil which I adore, and the whole process is super refreshing since the mask is very cooling. I usually keep it for about 10 minutes before I wash it off. I like to use a Precision Pore Cleansing Pad (mine is not from Sephora) to give my skin a nice massage and light exfoliation.
The price of $15 for a jar is actually a little pricy because I've used and purchased quality, larger sized mud masks by Borghese in Hong Kong for less than $15CAD. However, Body Shop has a lot of promotion as mentioned above under Price. So when you catch a good deal, you can easily stock up and save! :)
Finally, this is not tested on animals! If you go to their website for this product, you will actually find that this product supports community trade which is super awesome. I definitely recommend this product! If you have tried it before, let me know what you think of it! :)
