Avon Clearskin Pore Penetrating Clay Mask
Advantages: Excellent value, smooth, soft skin, reduced pores.
Disadvantages: Can be hard to rinse off, small writing on tube.
I have very annoying skin which can be dry, oily in places and prone to spots. As well as my daily cleanse, tone and moisturise routine I like to use a facemask a couple of times per week to give my skin an extra deep clean to try and prevent blemishes and to keep it looking as best as I can. I have been using Avon products on and off for years and am quite a fan of the different facemasks they produce so the last time I had a Avon catalogue I ordered a tube of their clearskin pore penetrating clay mask to try.
The clay based facemask is part of the Avon clearskin range of facial products and cost me £2.00 for a 75ml tube. This was on a promotion which Avon seem to have on a regular basis throughout there ranges, the normal price is £4.00. If you do not know an Avon representative so do not have access to a catalogue you can buy all of the products from the Avon website www.avonshop.co.uk.
The facemask as stated comes packaged in tube, this is white in colour and has a clear plastic flip top cap which the tube stands on to allow you to store it neatly in your bathroom. On the front of the tube it simply has the Avon logo and name of the mask as well as stating how much is contained inside. On the back of the tube you can find information on how the mask works, ingredients listings and directions for use. The writing on the back of the tube is very tiny as it is displayed in several languages.
It states that the mask contains pore firming technology which it says helps to make pores look visibly clearer and refined. As I have quite large visible pores I am always eager to try anything which will help to make them appear smaller and my skin smoother.
The mask is very easy to use you simply squeeze out a small amount about the size of a 50 pence piece and apply in a thin layer to your face making sure you avoid your eye area. The mask is a very pale green colour and feels very silky and smooth when you first apply it to your skin. As it is coloured it is easy to see where you are applying it. You then need to leave the mask on for around 5 minutes until it becomes dry and changes to a whiter colour. The mask becomes quite hard leaving your face feeling quite tight. You remove the mask warm water but it does take quite a bit of time to get off. When the mask is almost fully removed I normally wash my face with my cleansing face wash to remove the last traces. This is because after the first time I used the mask although I thought I had washed it all off, but when my face was dry and I looked in the mirror I could still see some white traces of it left.
After I have used this face mask my skin feels and looks very smooth, cleansed and fresh and the size of my pores reduced. I do really like the results that this face mask gives my skin as after I have applied my moisturiser my face has a lovely glow to it. Also although I do not wear make-up very often I find that if I use this face mask on my skin in preparation before applying makeup that it gives it a much better base and helps it to glide on better and gives it a smoother appearance. I do suffer from slightly sensitive skin at times but have had no adverse reaction when using this facemask at all. It states on the tube that this mask is suitable for using up to 3 times per week so you can give your skin a regular boost to keep it looking its best.
Overall I think this is a great facemask, one tube will last in the region of 10-15 applications so is excellent value. It is also easy to use and gives great results, it is a little hard to remove but I personally think the results are worth the extra effort. I will certainly be repurchasing this face mask and would recommend it for anyone to try.
Summary: A great value face mask which gives brilliant results.
