I suffer with bad skin. Ok I've admitted it! At 34 (almost 35) I still get spots, open pores and blackheads and thought when I was younger that one day I'd put the all behind me. Sadly though as I'm getting older I'm still suffering with them along with wrinkles, laughter lines and skin discolouration! Getting older really isn't any fun! lol.
I love face masks and basically love indulging myself and am apt at the art of pampering. I regularly purchase myself little treats and find alot of rather good buys in pound shops and the likes! I actually bought this box in a 99p shop on a day my face looked like a pepperoni pizza and had high hopes I'd use this and glow baby lol.
Turquoise, oblong, rather flat cardboard box. On the front in white and navy writing I'm told it's Beauty Formula 60 Second Heat & Cleanse Clay Mask which is a 'Deep cleansing, exfoliating natural clay facial mask to unclog pores and draw out impurities & excess oil, heats instantly when applied to your face like a warm towel treatment and gives clean, smooth healthier looking skin'. I'm told as well that there are 3 treatments in the box and there's a small photograph of a lady on there using one of the masks. On the back of the box I'm told a bit more about the treatments, directions for use are given (along with little diagrams), cautions are listed as are ingredients, contact details for Beauty Formulas are given and finally there is a bar-code on there. Nice informative box this is.
A Bit About The Product According To The Back Of The Box....
Beauty formula 60 second heat & cleanse clay mask capsules have been specially developed to open pores and cleanse deeply absorbing unwanted oil from the skin. The unique clay formula instantly heats when applied to the face like a warm towel beauty treatment. It cleanses and removes impurities to leave skin clean, smooth, and refreshed. The mask works using heat so does not need to harden or dry to remove impurities from the skin. Convenient, hygienic, and easy to use. Your own spa treatment in just 1 minute.
Me Using It....
Ok so using it is ever so simple to use and as promised convenient. You get a little silver capsule made from foil in a sort of flat pack and you snap the top off easily. All you do is smear the slightly greasy and rather thick white liquid with small blue dots of exfoliator (not many I only saw about 4 lol) over your face. I found more than enough in my capsule (in fact I had some left) and I gently rubbed it over my clean and dry face.
It's quite difficult to smear it over the face although comfortable and smooth to do so even with the exfoliating granules in there (I couldn't feel them doing anything at all). Because of the slightly sticky consistency this possesses you do have to work quite hard to get even coverage, however there is a reason for this....
The more you seem to massage the face mask onto the skin with your fingertips the warmer it gets. It doesn't get hot but it is a lovely heat that gives a slight tingling to sensitive and/or spotty, open areas. It was a pleasure to feel the heat on my face and it only lasted a few seconds along with the gentle tingle.
The smell is also really pleasant. There is not a single reason why men can't treat themselves to one of these as well as it just smells none distinctly fruity in a very fresh and light way and once rinsed off the face it just leave the skin sporting a slight aroma that wears off in a few minutes anyway.
After a minute or so I found this very easy to rinse off and could see it coming off my face in the way of a soapy look and I could feel or see no residue left behind.
This promises to remove impurities and leave skin feeling deep down cleansed and well, it does. Skin appears brighter and that's visible. After a couple of tough days with bulging eyes through tears (someone I care about died and I split with someone and my Mother is seriously ill and my spine problem is haunting me) my skin looked awful and tired. Well this really did pep my skin up and it felt so much firmer and cleaner.... Yep firmer, pores felt tighter, spots looked less angry and because face looked brighter even wrinkles and all the things I'm paranoid of actually appeared softer looking.
This removes excess oils in the skin making skin look more matte and that's why it looks fresher! Not only does it remove excess sebum (grease to you and me lol) it keeps it locked away and at bay for a good few hours as well making sure you look fresh and bright.
I love to use this before going out somewhere special for a clean fresh and tighter feeling face. Because skin is smoother and less spotty even make up application is easier and I feel so much more confident in myself! Not only does the skin look better it feels silky smooth to the touch and I heartily recommend this to men and women for a really nice treat and at 99p for 3 applications it's economical too!
Do search this one out in discount stores and the likes and I have seen this on line to purchase in online stores. Brilliant and easy to use it's great and simple to use!
