Boots Botanics Ionic Clay Mask #powerofplants

I want to tell you a little more about one of the products I got in the J'Adorevoxbox I posted about last week. Check that post here if you like.

It is called  Boots Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask.

Here is some product info:


Boots Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask:

Treat your skin to deep cleansing with this mineral-rich clay mask. Designed for use on normal skin, the unscented, hypo-allergenic formula absorbs excess oil and deeply cleanses skin. The oceanic clay exhibits a negative electrical charge, which helps to draw out impurities without overdrying, skin is left looking clearer whilst feeling softer and smoother. Willowbark, a key ingredient in the Boots Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask, is nature’s champion clarifier. The bark of the willow tree is a natural source of salicylic acid which helps to refine skin texture and actively target imperfections.
How to Use: Shake well before use. Apply to cleansed skin and leave to dry for 10 minutes. Rinse off with warm water

My review:

I tried this out when I first got it, at first I was a little surprised about it. That is because when I first squirted some out onto my hand it was kinda watery. I thought that was odd, since I think other mud type masks I've tried are very thick.

So I wasn't sure how this was going to work. You can go to my Instagram account to see pictures I took. The first one is when it is just applied (I took this one back in Feb. when I first got it) Check out picture HERE.

Despite my first misgivings about this being watery, once you apply it to your face it does go on smoothly and evenly. And coats your face rather nicely. Go here for second picture (I redid a mask the other day so I could get a couple more pictures) This picture shows what happens while the mask is drying. You get sort of a camo look - lol

The third step is the drying of the mask - this literally takes no more then 10-15 min. to dry. After that you can wash off with a face cloth and warm water. Check out this picture on Instagram of my mask once it was completely dry.

Once I rinsed this off, I noticed how refreshed and smooth my skin felt. It really works well and is a very nice facial mask.

You can purchase this on their website BootsUSStore or at major retailers such as Walgreens and Target. ARV $9.39 (good deal!)
