“ Brand: Olay / Type: Face Mask / What it does: Cleanses, „
This facial mask is great. It shrinks up pores and sucks away all oils and dirts in your skin which leaves your skin clean and makes pimples diminish. I'm left glowing and feeling fresh after using this product. Has a slightly earthy smell, blue color and doesnt irritate your skin. It even works well for sensitive skin, so don't be afriad to use it.
However, it can be quite tricky to scrub away once used as it leaves kind of a blue tint, but you do get rid of it eventually. It also dries pretty fash (which I guess can be a good thing, you don't want it dripping everywhere), but it does make applying an even mask tricky at times.
This is a good product weither you have acne, just a few spots or a clear face. I would definatly recomment it to anyone; particularly people who suffer from oily or combination skin. It works best on these. it makes pores smaller, smoothens skin and makes it soft. A perfect way to pamper yourself!
I'm infatuated with face masks! I always look for that salon experience and I don't mind the cost to be honest. I just want something that works after all. Though I never find it! So I keep buying them in the hope that they will work and as result I own quite a few of them. I alternate what I use for different reasons and for the needs I require at the time.
I've owned this product for ages. I'll explain why as I go through my review.
So What Is it Exactly?
Olay Clarify Clay Mask For Combination/Oily Skin by Procter & Gamble.
Packaging Of The Product.
It's a 120ml see through recyclable tube which has a silver coloured flip top lid situated at the bottom. The tube looks exactly the same as the photo so I won't go on about it but I will add that on the back it tells us what it should give us, cautions, Ingredients and contact numbers for Olay. The colour of the product is a blueish colour and you can see as use some of the product the thickness in the bottle of it. I do like the bottle as I can see how much of the product I have used and when it's about to run out.

My Experience And Verdict....
I'm a huge fan of this product. However it is tricky to use. Firstly application is easy, it goes on well. If you get it near your eyes it doesn't hurt or make them weep it just wipes away. On the skin it doesn't tingle or irritate. The bit that is difficult is if you apply it as recommended it dries too hard and stiff on the face. That doesn't bother me I mean after all it is a clay mask and its meant to but getting it off is hard work. You really have to scrub. So I don't use it this way. I have no idea whether it works as good but I always put it on my face in the bath and leave it for double the time. It doesn't dry but at least I can get it off which it does with ease!
It really does work! When I have took it off, my face feels so much tighter but for me far too tight so I wipe with some toner straight after and to make sure it gets rid of all traces of the mask completely. My face looks so clean! Pores look visibly smaller and no traces of grease. I feel this product really does work to it's claim.
It says to be used 2 or 3 times a week but me, I use it as a 'rescue' product in the main which can be once a week or 5 times a week! Great after a night on the town or after a day in the city shopping for that extra deep down clean. The product lasts ages. It doesn't take a lot to cover your face and you need to use it fairly sparingly or it takes ages to dry on the face (if using it as intended and not like me in the bath lol)
My facial skin is in excellent condition at the moment and I do put it down to this and some other products I have been using as late. I certainly have less dry skin, less spots and a less oily appearance.
I recommend this one for for anyone, even men. It has very little smell to it that's nondescript.
A great buy and good investment.
I got mine for £3.99 in Boots but Ive seen it in loads of places!
