When I moved to London I did not bring any clarifying masks with me, as I didn’t like the ones I was using back home. As soon as I saw Super Facialist by Úna Brennan Pore Purifying Clay Mask at Boots I bought it. It could be because I’ve never heard of the brand before, the packaging, the fact that there was an offer on the brand or maybe all three combined. What can I say.
The mask contains Salicylic Acid, which is the key ingredient to unclog congested skin and the Dead Sea mud which is in the mask helps with absorbing the oil, as it’s rich in magnesium, calcium, potassium and iron. The texture of the mask is just right. Not too thick or droopy, which makes it very easy to apply. It dries up dry and can feel a bit tight, though not much different from the regular clay mask.
After 15-20 minutes I wash it of with lukewarm water. Unlike many clay masks I’ve tried in the past, it is very easy to remove – it washed off without rubbing my face off. My skin feels amazing afterwards and is looking plump and moisturized. The only thing is that the mask doesn’t do what it’s supposed to do: clarify the skin and unclog pores. I haven’t seen any skin improvements when using this, it didn’t minimize spots, the appearance of pores or decreased any blackheads. I’m quite disappointed with the product, as I’ve heard many great things about the brand and this range even. I probably won’t continue using this product, as I am quite happy with my recent additions of clarifying/purifying clay masks.
Have you ever tried anything from Super Facialist by Úna Brennan?
