Face mask Friday

This week I was trying out a new clay face mask I picked up during the week for my usual Friday night deep cleanse. I was drawn to the NATIO Green Clay & Manuka Honey purifying face mask mainly because of the inclusion of Manuka honey which is rich with antioxidants and is a natural antibacterial which I was hoping would help out with a couple minor blemishes I’ve developed on one of my cheeks during the change of seasons. ❤️ PROS ❤️ + Great price at only AU$14.95 full price and I only paid AU$11 on sale, the ALYA pink clay mask I talked about in my last face mask Friday post is AU$49.99 in comparison + Lovely smooth consistency and cooling sensation when applied + Easy to apply quickly as it’s slightly runny + Contains aloe and Manuka honey to soothe the skin + No added fragrance and no discernible smell to the mask + Didn’t leave my face tight or dehydrated despite being a purifying mask + My pores looked great afterwards! 💙 CONS 💙 + Difficult to remove, required a fair bit of scrubbing to get all the mask off + Flared up a couple minor blemishes on my cheek which were barely noticeable before but appeared red and inflamed after removing (not itchy or sore so this may be as much to do with how many times I had to go back and forward over my skin to remove the product as the actual mask itself) + Contains benzyl alcohol which can be drying and irritating especially on broken skin, not a major ingredient as is listed second last on the ingredients but could be part of the reason for the irritation on my cheek after using this mask ❤️💙 MY RATING 💙❤️ NATIO - Spirit Green Clay + Manuka Honey Purifying Face Mask
If not for inflaming the blemishes on my cheek I would have rated this mask higher as my skin did feel and otherwise look great afterwards especially my pores around my t-zone were super clear and their appearance minimised. I don’t have overly sensitive skin so I probably wouldn’t recommend this mask to those who have quite sensitive skin in case the benzyl alcohol acts as an irritant. For those with dry skin which isn’t sensitive this is worth a try at the low price point as it was very gentle on my skin from a hydration perspective.

HYPE: My thoughts on the Aztec Healing Clay
HYPE: My thoughts on the Aztec Healing Clay
I decided to give this clay mask a go after all the hype around it. I mixed a few table spoons with a quarter cup of Luke warm water and a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar. Mixing this product and getting the right consistency is a bit of a challenge. I used a plastic spoon instead of a metal spoon due to the acidity of this product. To apply: I used a foundation brush and layered it onto my skin to apply even layers on my face. I recommend if you have sensitive skin to leave it on under 10 minutes. I kept mine on for the full 10 minutes and really started to feel a tingle, face tightening and pulsing. After rinsing off with warm water, my face definitely felt well exfoliated. There was a little redness but that’s about it. I use this product only once or twice a week and have been using it for around 6-7 weeks now. My pores feel clean and see a difference with my pore size. Love this product! Definitely worth the hype. 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 AZTEC SECRET - Indian Healing Clay

How to Use: Apply a thin even layer over skin. Allow to dry up to 2-3 mins. Rise with water. ~After Use Benefits~ Cleans and removed oil from pores Treats and helps to prevent future breakouts ~My thoughts~ This mask did not do much for me. After using this mask my skin felt very dry. I did not see any of the promised effects, my pores didn’t look any different and my acne was still very red. This mask also did not prevent future breakouts and I now have more acne then I did before using this mask. The only good part about this mask was that it was very easy it get in and off. It also had a very nice minty smell. Overall I am really disappointed about this product and I would not recommend this product or buy it again.

The face mask is super minty, the smell is soothing. I really enjoy the tingly feeling that it gives my face. When I wash this mask off, I noticed that my skin felt smooth, and my pores shrunk. I really like how lush have different set of sizes, 4.4oz - 14.95, 11.1oz- 28.95, 21.1 - 39.95. It’s really nice to really try out the small size first. You can also get samples at you lush store. When the mask dries down, it makes my face tight like a clay mask. My big pimple has reduced and improved a lot. Putting this face mask face my face a nice canvas. I highly Recommend using this product if you need some improvements in skin texture or reducing that big pimple. After when I wash my face, my skin felt clean and I really enjoy that. It is a nice way to pamper yourself. LUSH - Mask Of Magnaminty

i decided to pick this mask up during the sephora 20% sale because it has amazing reviews on the website. this mask targets pores, blemishes, and oiliness. unlike many clay masks, it is a clay mask that is super light and easy to wash off! i love using this whenever i feel like my pores are clogged, usually 1-2 times a week. it does a really good job at sucking out the gunk from my pores! sometimes, i would even use this as an acne treatment and leave it on for a few hours or even overnight. overall, i really love this mask, because it doesn’t dry out my dry, sensitive skin at all! it also comes with a brush which makes the application super smooth and mess-free. i would highly recommend this mask to anyone who has large pores or blemishes. it’s totally worth the price!

The World's Most Powerful Mask?!?😲
The World's Most Powerful Mask?!?😲
This mask is branded as the “world’s most powerful facial” and claims to deep clean your pores. It’s best known for its detoxing qualities. Because of its strong negative charge that pulls the toxins out of your skin. This mask is great for those who have oily skin. That being said, this mask literally sucks EVERYTHING out of your face. It can be very stripping and can really dry out your skin afterwards. I would recommend using it only once a week. Also, moisturizing your skin thoroughly after using this mask (even if you have oily skin)!! One thing that I enjoy about this mask is that it is fragrance free! The instructions recommend mixing it with apple cider vinegar or water, I’ve tried both ingredients and I prefer apple cider vinegar because it gives me more of a detox. If you have dry/sensitive skin, I would suggest mixing it with water. That being said, this mask is VERY strong, so if you find your face turning red afterwards it’s normal and usually calms down after 30 mins. Although, you should always do a test patch on an area other than your face before trying this product! I wouldn’t necessarily say this mask is an essential, but it is nice if you want to give yourself a detox every once in a while. I do NOT apply this product all over my face, just in areas I feel the most congestion. For instance, my T-zone. This mask also claims to help with cuts, bruises, insect bites, strings, boils, rashes, joint pains, acne, and burns. I have not tried this mask on any other part of my body besides my face. Always do your research before trying new products!!

blackhead clearing+pore minimizing
blackhead clearing+pore minimizing
Here is my full honest review of the “Freeman Dead Sea Minerals clay mask” It’s marketed towards instantly clearing pores and balancing for renewed skin, I would say it does exactly what it says and more! It never directly says “clear blackheads + pore minimizing” however when I use this product it does wonders on both I mentioned! Target concerns are replenishing and balancing moisture while purging clogged pores! It’s markets towards all skin types, I have normal to dry skin so what I can say for my skin type is that it doesn’t over dry at all like some clay masks! I’ve noticed big changes in my pores especially around my my nose, that’s normally where I apply it. So I can attest to it working well for blackheads! The texture is wonderful, when you first get it out of the tube it is thick smells of lavender and bergamot! After ten minutes of it sitting on your skin it drys like any clay mask and I put hot to warm water on my skins to get it off! My skin feels as smooth as a baby’s bottom. I’ve been using Freeman’s products for a while and this one in particular I’ve been using for around a half a year, I use it every few weeks if I notice any blackheads appearing! I don’t use this very often because I have found other treatments that help better, my boyfriend will not because he has oily and cystic acne and it makes him break out. I recommend trying it to people who have normal to oily or normal to dry because the price is so worth it. If it doesn’t work for you just gift it to a friend! You could use it in a time crunch that’s for sure(: 5 out of 5 for me🥰
