Before Christmas I was kindly sent a few packs of the Living Nature Deep Cleansing Mask. I decided to save them for the new year and give them a good trial during January. I’ve only used a a few face masks before. One of my favourites is another Living Nature product, the Hydrating Gel Mask. The Deep Cleansing mask is one of the first clay mask’s I’ve tried in a while. I’m now certain that I need to introduce a face mask into my weekly skin routine, the colder weather means I need to pay more attention to looking after it.
One of the main reasons that I’ve never used face masks on a regular basis is because I’m not very patient. I’m also careful because I once used one of those ‘heating’ face masks, I think that’s what they’re called, and it caused my poor skin to flair up. I’ve used a lot of skin and make-up products from Living Nature in the past and never had problems with them so I felt confident trying this cleansing mask.
I also decided that I should take the time to try and learn to relax during 2014. I generally find relaxing and cutting off from work, my phone and the laptop quite hard. So, each Sunday I’d use the mask and take those 20 minutes of soaking in time to try and relax. As soon as I’d applied the mask I made sure that I used the time to read or plan out meals for the week ahead. I know 20 minutes isn’t much but it’s a start and I hope to be able to find the time to recharge on a weekly basis as the year goes on.
This mask can be used up to twice a week. I decided to use the mask once at the end of each week during January. I found that this worked well for my skin. I used a daily face wash for the rest of the week.
This is a Halloysite clay mask (which helps to absorb toxins) so the consistency is very thick. Each 5ml packet contains a lot of product and there is more than enough to cover your face and neck. The mask is packed full of Manuka oils which have antiseptic qualities and makes the mask good for those with acne prone skin. It’s also said to work well for all skin types. I have dry and sensitive skin and have had no reactions from using the mask on a weekly basis.
I’ve found that my skin has felt much cleaner, clear and softer since I’ve been using the mask. After a week of make-up and travel I try to let me skin be free at the weekend and this mask has helped with giving it some extra care and attention.
The mask is very easy to use:
– Exfoliate your skin or just make sure all make-up has been removed.
– Apply all over your face, as you would with any mask.
– Leave it to soak in and work its magic for 20 minutes.
– Rinse away with warm water.
Now for the creepy photo that comes with reviewing a face mask:
Price: £25 – each pack contains 10 5ml treatments.
I’ll be buying a box of these after I’ve been paid. I want to keep them on hand for when my skin breaks out, they really help to calm any spots or irritations.
