Ugh, I look weird in this photo. It is like my forehead sunk.
Anyway, I’ve been trying out the Kaolin Clay Detoxifying Facial Mask from Michael Todd. It said to be extra absorbent for oily, combination and acne-prone skin. So I think this mask is perfect for me.
It has quite a weird smell. I cant put my finger on what scent it is, but it is not revolting, just not pleasant either. The texture is quite like a gel. So it is nice to put on all over the face. It is quite translucent and thin, doesn’t irritate my skin.
It says to put on for 10-15 minutes, but I find that only after 15 minutes or so, it started to harden. I will then find it hard to smile, which of course I will, as I just like to see the mask cracking. Therefore I will leave the mask on longer than the stated timing.
Washing out the mask is quite a tedious work. I use warm water to wash off. It will get all soft and leathery like a facial wash. I then have to keep rubbing my hands around for awhile for it to be gone. It takes time, but it’s worth. My face will be so soft after. It’s just so “bouncy” like those facial wash commercials; the way they demonstrated the softness of their face.
So I really like the after effect. Therefore, I will recommend this mask to anyone with oily or combination skin.
