Types of Masks
The Spring Cleaner

Just like your house your skin needs a good deep clean - you know those times when it feels congested, a bit over spotty, dull and pores are in need of a good vacuum? Purification is the solution, the rich marine and land mud mask gives a professional deep cleanse.

The concentrated formula harnesses the power of Kaolin Clay which has deep cleansing, decongesting and toning qualities, helping to eliminate acne, blemishes and blackheads while smoothing and softening skin. It balances both oily and dry skin, absorbing oil and reducing the production of sebum without stripping the skin of its natural oils and works to nourish, sooth and soften dry skin.

The Power Player

The Power Breakfast is a nutritious mask is a health kick in a jar, it combines oats, honey, fruit and juice to gently dissolve dead skin cells, polish, decongest and brighten even the dullest of complexions.
Kaolin Clay provides deep cleaning and draws out impurities, reduces bacteria and balances oiliness while nourishing, toning and improving skin tone. Strawberry juice, papaya juice, walnut shell powder and pear and apple juice detox and exfoliate skin, naturally dissolving dead skin cells and leaving skin bright and radiant. After 20 minutes skin is left balanced, nourished, restored and rejuvenated.
Regardless which mask you opt for the application method will always begin in the same way. As with all skincare products (with the obvious exception of cleansers) it’s important to start with a clean face. If you apply masks directly onto unwashed skin you will trap dirt and impurities into skin which increases the chance of breakouts and irritation.
To increase the effectiveness of your mask, apply to clean skin and gently exfoliate skin as this removes dead-cell skins and enables ingredients to absorb and penetrate deeper into skin.
To ensure that the mask delivers its desired benefits follow the application directions and leave on for the directed time. In the case of clay or mud masks, exceeding this time can dry out skin or increase bacteria levels leading to breakouts. For this reason it is also important to ensure that you remove all traces of clay masks as residue can dry out skin. Using a muslin cloth to gently buff off a mask can help to improve the exfoliating benefits of masks and removes dead, dull skin cells that have been broken down. After washing off your mask follow with a sweep of toner to leave skin feeling clean and fresh.
With so many to choose from, we’d love to know which mask is your favourite?
