American, organic, luxury, expensive.
A clay mask. Well, the powder part. You add the water in and it’s an active clay mask.

People with a thick skin and willingness for a bit of a burn. Avoid if you’re sensitive, rosacea, prone to redness.

Vegan, and cruelty free.

For some people: essential oils, and strong actives. I like those, though.
Glass black opaque jar. Very luxe, not so easy to travel with.
How to use:
‘Activate one tablespoon powder with just shy of equal parts water to form a soft, rich mousse. Smooth over skin and relax 30-45 minutes. Expect tingling heat sensation. Step into a warm shower, allowing the steam and running water to rehydrate the masque before rinsing as you massage gently with your fingertips’
This is how I would use it too.
I would use this once a week to begin, but I used it more often when I felt like it.
£89 for 250ml. I KNOW. I used it pretty regularly and it lasted me over a year though….
The fuller’s clay and Red Moroccan Rhassoul clay are very cleansing. It is true that the mask stimulates the skin. Skin is left more refreshed and smooth.
To say it’s ‘the problem solver’ is over ambitious. I get that it does deal with congested skin in an effective way, but this is not a one-stop solution for your congested skin. Nothing is. Don’t buy this thinking that all your spots will go away.
Some people do find this mask purely painful.
And cmon £90…….
If you love masks and have the money for it then go for it. As much as I loved some of the effect, I’m not sure I would shell out £90 for it again.
