MISSHA Purple-Firming Natural Color Clay Mask is one of the 4 masks in the Color Clay series. I love the fact how gentle they are on my skin. 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.

Do I like it? Hell yeah! With this mask a little goes a long way. The tube of this clay mask contains 137 grams of product! It is huge and lasts me forever. If I would want to cover my entire body in clay I could use one of these and still have some left afterwards.
The consistency of clay is very soft and creamy. If you ever tried the Biotherm Wonder Mud, you know what to expect from this one. The color of it is pinkish with a slight tint of purple in it. It turns more violet on the skin once it is drying out. There is no scent to the clay that I can detect. It spreads out extremely well and when it dries it still somehow feels moisturizing .
I apply this Firming Natural Color Clay onto my entire face. I do use a brush for it to create more thin layer. I remember the first time I used it I was afraid it is going to pull on my skin so I just placed it only over my T-zone. Now that I know it is tug-free, it is my go-to mask when I want to reduce the shine of my face for the coming day.
I usually leave it on for 15 minutes. Within this time it is nearly completely dry. When I rinse it, it comes off in no time leaving my skin very smooth and matte. I pat my skin with a toner of my choice and apply my make-up. After these steps my make-up sits on my face for an entire day and I don’t even have to use the blotting paper.
Final verdict: This mask is great to use if you need to wear make-up and be out an about for an entire day. By the end of the day you are left with flawlessly sitting make-up!
