Facials used to be something we'd do as part of a girls night. We'd all get together telling stories about our lives while smearing some sort of stuff on our faces and painting our nails.
Now there are such great products out there you don't have to wait for a girls night or spend a bunch of money at the salon.
I recently received the Boots Botanics Ionic Clay Mask in my #Jadorevoxbox from Influenster. It is a clay based mask with only 5 ingredients, meant to cleans and purify your skin!
I finally got to try it out the other night.
Before applying, make sure you have washed your face.
First thoughts... it totally reminded me of gardening in clay soil! I'm a gardener at heart, love the feeling of the mud/clay on my hands. Strange, I know. One thing I have never done but would like to do is try a mud bath! But I digress...
The mask was easy to apply and went on smoothly. It dries pretty fast. The directions say to leave it on for ten minutes. I got a phone call right after I put it on, so I had the mask on for probably 30 minutes.
To remove it I used a wash cloth with warm water. It comes off fairly easy. Resting the cloth on your face for a few seconds before wiping really makes it come off easily. The directions say to use warm water, but I like that using a wash cloth doesn't make as much of a mess as splashing water on your face.
The Boots Clay Mask has a natural plant extract from the bark of the willow tree (my favorite tree). Willow is a natural source of salicylic acid.
I haven't really noticed much of a difference in my skin since using it, but my face didn't feel any more dry than usual, which is really good, considering it is winter, freezing and many of these products over-dry the face. I will definitely be using again!
