Avon Clearskin Pore Penetrating Black Mineral Mask
It's only pretty recently that I have actually started using face masks and actually enjoying them. I used to find putting them on and having to wait 15 minutes more of a chore whereas now I understand my skin type more, it's more of a pamper. This one caught my eye in the Avon catalogue a couple of months back and it was on offer for around £3, a bargain I had to have. Avon say:
"Unique formula, with oil-absorbing mineral clay, pulls like a magnet to draw out pore-clogging dirt & oil. Skin feels clean and soft."
The ingredients of this mask include hydrated silica and salicylic acid which are great for blemish prone skin and also witch hazel. The texture of this mask is super smooth making application a dream. This goes on black and then after 10-15 minutes, when the mask has turned grey on your face, then it's time to wash it off with warm water. Whilst this mask is on my face it certainly gets that tight feeling towards the end and also a very slight cooling sensation but nothing nasty feeling. Also this mask doesn't consist of a strong smell which is nice considering the time you have to keep it on.
This mask is perfect if you have oily/combination skin as it really does help absorb the oil and leave your skin feeling super soft. I do feel like this mask does help fight off and tighten pores but not fully. I did find a few around my nose were still slightly visable after using this mask but I will continue to use it in hope that maybe it just missed them that time around. This isn't a mask that I would use very often a week and I have only been using it once a week so that may mean that my results aren't as great as someone who may use it more times a week so that's definitely something I should try.
I do however love the feel of my skin after using this product and will continue to use it as I do love the results. Suffering from oily skin is a right pain in the bottom and this product really does soak it all up and leave it super smooth. I will definitely keep up with trying to use this mask more than once a week and see if my results change and if they do I shall let you know of course.
Overall this is a great, cheap mask which I am enjoying using. You can find this product here from the Avon website. Let me know if you've tried this product or your favourite Avon products ready for when I next receive my catalogue :-)
