I have notoriously oily skin (especially on my forehead) and I have tried so many clay face masks in the hope that I could find one that would unclog my pores and keep the oil build-up at bay. A couple of weeks ago I picked up Una Brennan’s Super Facialist Salicylic Acid Anti Blemish Clay Mask (that’s a mouthful, right?) and am absolutely in love with it.
The product itself promises to clear your skin of dirt, excessive oils and toxins which leave to breakouts. Containing Salicylic Acid, proven to help unclog congested skin and oil-absorbing Dead Sea mud rich in magnesium, calcium, potassium and iron for the perfect detox facial at home. In my opinion, this product is everything it says it is!
Squeezing out the product which looks a lot like clay (as the name suggests really), you smear it generously onto your face and neck and leave it on for around 5 minutes where it will dry and tighten significantly. Once the 5 minutes are up, simply take a warm flannel and wipe it off. Your skin will look refined, clear and glowing – it’s a detox facial in the comfort of your own home!
I love that the product itself isn’t too thick that you need to exert every ounce of hand strength that you have in order to get it out of the tube, its spreads beautifully and evenly. There is little to no smell that I can pick up and trust me when I say that it has calmed down my breakouts, tamed my oily forehead and unblocked my pores. It is recommended to use 1 – 2 times a week and trust me, your skin will thank you!
