Let’s talk about Clay Masks.

Hi guys! I’m baaack! And as you can see, leadiiinglady has got a new look πŸ˜‰

My blog is now almost 7 months old and so I’ve decided to upgrade to a more sophisticated theme. At first this was more of a hobby but I’ve been enjoying it so much that I think I’m now ready to take it to the next level! I’ve started a few collaborations and so watch out for that. Plus, I’m open to more opportunities and so feel free to send me an email or a dm on Instagram!

Anyway, back to my blog post!

Let’s talk about clay masks.

I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with clay masks. The thing is, it’s really hard to find a good clay mask for sensitive. Most clay masks tend to be very drying and tightening. Aside from that, a lot of them make the skin red and stingy. I personally have sensitive skin and so I really had to find the right one for me.

LUCKILY, I didn’t find just one but TWO perfect clay masks for me and my skin and I’m here to share them with you!

NeoGen Canadian Clay Pore Cleanser

One of my fave masks of all time!!! But tbh, it’s not a leave-on mask. What makes this mask so great is how gentle and effective it is for me. It does not sting whatsoever and it makes my face feel squeaky clean. Like I said, you don’t leave it on your face. You apply it with your fingers and rub it all around in a circular motion. When you first apply it, the mask will bubble (you will look like a cloud hahaha) – after about 5 minutes of spreading it all around, it’ll eventually flatten and that’s the time you wash it off.

The consistency is really bubbly and light (as you can see above) and so it can get a bit messy especially when applied but otherwise, it does what it’s supposed to. After using it, it’s the best feeling in the world! My face feels so fresh and clean – plus my pores appear much smaller and cleaner. It was love at first sight with this mask. I saw it and I just had to buy it after reading so many great reviews! And I am definitely not disappointed πŸ˜‰

I bought this from BeautyMNL!

The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Clay Mask

I’ve only used this twice but I am already in love with this product! I’ve always felt iffy about leave on clay masks because they really tend to dry my skin out but I got lucky with this one!

I’ve been looking at this line from the Body Shop because of all the natural ingredients used. I decided to buy this one because it’s used to mainly purify and that’s what I needed. I was really tempted to buy the other ones too cause they look so pretty but ugh this mask is pretty pricey ($28).

Anyway, I love the ingredients used especially Charcoal and Tea Tree! Charcoal takes off the excess sebum and cleans the pores while Tea Tree helps get rid of bacteria and purifies.

At first I was worried about the smell because of my sensitive skin. The smell is very strong and minty and so I was afraid I was going to breakout but guess what??? My skin didnt have any bad reaction whatsoever. In fact, my skin wasn’t even red once I washed the mask off! It was LESS red and that barely ever happens. Which means that this mask really cleaned and calmed my skin down.

Just a note! When you use the mask, you’ll experience a bit of a cool tightening feeling but that is completely normal! Don’t forget I have sensitive skin and this mask worked for me! And so I’m pretty sure it’ll work for you too! πŸ˜‰ Since this was such a success, I’m already looking forward to buying more masks from the same line!!!

I got this from The Body Shop for $28!

That’s it for my clay mask post!!! Stay tuned for a makeup post coming soon πŸ’œ
