*Face Mask Friday* – Clearasil Vitamins & Extracts Wash & Mask

This is something I’d completely forgotten about until this week when I was digging out the cleansers I have to use up and low and behold.. another mask to review! I have mentioned this before at some point as when I first received it I loved it but as with most things it was replaced with a new product to try – the pitfalls of beauty blogging. I already knew I liked it but in the interest of a fair review I used it twice again this week to refresh my memory and I discovered it was actually even better than I’d first thought. Initially I’d used it as a kind of deep cleanse, I applied it while I was in the bath and washed it off once I got out, it was never left for more than 20 mins and never left to set because of the steam in the bathroom. I assumed it was a mask that would stay moist so when I used it this week when pottering around the house I was surprised to find that it hardened quite quickly. I left it on for about an hour both times and it left my skin quite tender which you may not like but I personally do. I don’t have particularly sensitive skin so if something tingles a little I just feel like it’s working. There are definitely some active ingredients here! I can vouch for it’s clearing properties also, something I’ve been using recently broke me out terribly and this has been an absolute life saver this week. My skin is almost entirely blemish free and very smooth but I wouldn’t recommend the use of this as a mask more than once a week. I do like it as a cleanser and it works nicely with my Clarisonic but it’s far more effective when it’s left for longer. It’s a Clearasil product so I guess you should expect results but I was impressed none the less, I would however not recommend this for sensitive or very dry skin as it is definitely targeted at the more oily/blemish prone among us.

Available online at Boots for £4.99 here

      oh no! must admit I can see that happening as the ingredient as so active but I wouldn’t have thought it would be a regular reaction. Hope your skin cleared up quickly x
