What would you say if I could offer you the ability of having a fresh, hydrated well rested face in under twenty minutes? If someone where to ask me this, I would probably both laugh and be intrigued. As a person with dry, dehydrated skin who drinks more coffee than water traditional detoxifying masks must be used with caution. VALENCIA (previously reviewed here) recently launched their new Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask made with natural and organic ingredients.
“The VALENCIA Skin Detoxifying Clay mask contains Kaolin Clay which is known for its detoxifying powers a the clay miners draw out impurities, improving one’s skin tone while also tightening pores for a smoother finish. Plant Stem Cells naturally decreases the level of pro-aging toxins and works to sooth the skin, reduce redness, and improve evenness. Spirulina, a botanical stimulant full of vitamins that hydrates the skins surface and contributes to tissue regeneration of the skin. CoQ10, lessens the appearance of wrinkles by reducing free radical damage and stimulating health collagen production in addition a to Hibiscus & Cranberry Fibers, which lend their anti-aging properties to firm and reinforce the skin, helping to reduce the creation of new wrinkles” – VALENCIA.
Contains 4 oz. of product and retails for $25.00 and is available on Amazon.
Upon opening the jar you will immediately notice a fruity scent. This is a pleasant scent but for some could be considered pungent or overpowering. I love that the Skin Detoxifying Clay mask is both clarifying and exfoliating. Unlike traditional clay masks, this formula does not leave your pores feeling unbearably tight, but rather leaves your skin feeling plump and hydrated. I was also pleasantly surprised to find my pores appeared smaller and clean – as I tend to have a congested T-zone. After reading other reviews I was intrigued to see many people were successful in treating the dreaded chicken skin (Keratosis Pilaris). If this is true, this mask has been elevated to Holy Grail as those of you who suffer from know how difficult it is to get rid of Keratosis Pilaris.
The mask is easy to use and only requires 15 – 20 minutes to dry. I do recommend using a damp cloth to remove. As a disclaimer, I would recommend testing a small amount of the mask on your skin before applying. I was incredibly pleased with this mask I just had to share with my friends. Unfortunately, one out of the three of us couldn’t bear wearing the mask for twenty minutes as they said it burned. I personally did not have the same experience but did notice the mask tingled.
