If you have a problem skin (as I do) and have blemishes even in your thirties (as I do) then if you can afford it, I would really suggest that you try a Murad Clarifying Mask. I got mine as part of a gift set last Christmas and I have used my mask a lot of times now and now it’s all gone I just know I am going to have to go out and buy another tube. AT almost £22 for a 75ml tube, I have obviously been putting of doing this, but it has helped my blemishes and T zone enormously so I really will go and buy another one.
I was using this great clay face mask about twice a week for a really deep down clean and it worked for me. I have quite a sensitive skin and tough this mask does tingle when it is drying on your face, it is really mild and gentle and it never adversely affected my skin at any time I used it.
The mask come sin a tube and it has bout half a dozen applications. It is quite thick and creamy in consistency and a light beige in colour so you can exactly where you are applying it. It smells pretty non-descript, if I am honest but you can feel it getting to work on your skin form the minute you first apply it.
It does not dry hard and fast on the face and neck or have that horrible tight pulling sensation like some face masks can have. It dries in abut ten to fifteen minutes and then I just remove with warm water.
The results re immediate in that my skin looks and feels so much better. My skin actually glows and feels so very clean. It has really helped me with my oily T zone and I find that I get less spots on those areas when I use this face mask on a regular basis. The active ingredients are liquorice extract, zinc and sulfur and these ingredients working together just seem to benefit my skin so much.
I know it is expensive but the way I look at it is that it is an investment for my skin.
I really do recommend it.
One of the many beauty products I received for Christmas was this Murad Clarifying Mask which my niece gave to me as part of a bundle of lovely smellies, she has excellent taste so I knew I'd like the mask and couldn't wait to try it.
Although this mask is made for people who have the kind of problem skin which breaks out into blemishes, my niece assured me it would be fine for my very sensitive skin and may help as it would draw out impurities and gives skin a deep clean.
As soon as I squeezed some out I was impressed, it smells very gentle and is a clay mask which wasn't immediately apparent from the packaging. The mask is a beige/grey colour which is a little more attractive than the very grey mask I was using before Christmas.
The Clarifying Mask is easy to smooth over the skin on my face and neck because it has a nice creamy consistency which means I could easily get the mask to cover the areas on my face where I need the most help, I laid it on thicker in these areas whereas my forehead and chin benefited from me using less of the product.
As the mask dries I was impressed that it doesn't set as hard as other clay masks, it sets completely but not to such a stiff and powdery finish. This is great for me as I hate the tightening effect a lot of masks have on my face as they dry.
From the moment I used the mask I was hugely impressed, I could literally feel my skin being cleansed from the inside out and this was reinforced when I rinsed it off a few minutes later using tepid water. My skin was glowing, I've been impressed with other face masks recently but this one is the absolute best.
The skin on my face felt extremely cleansed and it was tingling slightly, my skin felt soft and smooth and looked very healthy. I also found my delicate skin felt soothed and moisturised afterwards, I did admittedly use a light facial lotion afterwards but I don't dare let my facial skin get too dry so did this just to be on the safe side.
I use this Murad Clarifying Mask once every three or four days now and am finding the appearance and feel of my skin is getting better all the time, it's not a miracle cure nor an anti-wrinkle product so major skin problems will not be helped overnight but as for making me look healthier and more alert I cannot fault this mask at all.
The main ingredients are liquorice extract, zinc and sulfur which may sound like a strange combination but the first two are known for their soothing and calming properties, while sulfur will help to comfort and heal any blemishes you have on your skin. In particular products containing sulfur are excellent for acne sufferers as it will not only calm your skin but also help encourage the affected areas to heal.
Murad Clarifying Mask is not the cheapest you can buy, my 75ml tube costs £21.99 from www.beautybay.com and this is the cheapest price I could find online at the moment. But I think it will last for ages, I use mine roughly twice a week and have had this tube for five weeks now and there is barely any difference in the amount of product in the tube. You only need to use it quite sparingly I've found as if you apply too much it won't set anyway and will feel very heavy on your skin.
