MISSHA Brightening Natural Color Clay Mask is one of the 4 masks in the Color Clay series. I love the fact how gentle all of them are on my skin and that’s why I own the entire line. Clay masks are my nr 2 used masks in my entire collection. First place is rightfully occupied by the sheet masks because they are so easy in use.

My experience:

So this time my review is about the yellow clay mask from the Natural Clay series! Is it meeting it’s main claim of brightening? Not on my skin. Do I still like it? I love it!!!

 

With this mask a little goes a long way. The tube of this clay mask contains 137 grams of product and lasts me forever. Same as the Purple Clay mask, this one has a very smooth and creamy consistency.It is on a thicker side than the rest though. It has a slight mud-like scent to it which is unnoticeable unless you go sniffing close around the tube. The color of it is pale yellow and most favorite of mine from the entire bunch.  Due to the smooth and firm consistency it spreads out like melting butter. Same as the Purple clay, it leaves the skin very hydrated and is perfect for applying it over an entire face.

 

Yellow clay mask is absolutely tug-free. It doesn’t entirely dry out on my skin even after keeping a thin layer of it on for 20 minutes. Washing off part is easy and that’s where the magic happens. My skin feels and looks more smooth, my wrinkles seem faded and skin more firm to the touch. It is an absolute love for me even though it’s main claim, brightening, is  not met. In this case the way my skin feels and looks in the end is more important to me than the writing on the pack.

 

It makes my skin look and feel flawless!!! It is definitely worth trying out if you have normal, oily or combination skin. I do secretly think it is good for the sensitive and dry skins too regardless the fact that it has alcohol in it. I wish MISSHA would bring this range back. All of the masks from this series are nice to use.
