So natural Facial Design Deep Pink Mud Mask has been a true clay mask done right revelation for me this year. It is so lovely in use and the final effects on my skin were amazing! If you are looking for less complex xlay mask usage, definitely try the clay sheet masks yourself.

My experience:

So natural Facial Design Deep Pink Mud Mask is a true masterpiece of lazy. I love clay masks and use them weekly but one thing that was bugging me for ages is how long the washing off step usually is. if the clay is fortified with glycerin it is never ending story to wash off. Hence, once I stumbled across these sheet type clay masks I immediately thought maybe it is handier than the regular pot-jar-brush situation. It was totally worth it because my wish came true.

Once the mask is out of the pack you see the sheet that is jammed between two plastic protectors. In order to use the mask you have to use one of the films, apply the mask onto your face, and only then remove the second film. If you are as impatient as I am and remove two films you will get into trouble. The sheet is super-adherent to itself and will get stuck. I had to lay my piece flat in order to separate the stuck parts. Since I learn fast, the second piece went onto my face in the matter of seconds.  The entire wearing time was 35 minutes for me and results were astonishing.

You may still be wondering about the mask. Is it clay mask? is it sheet mask? Well, actually, it is a hybrid and a very promising one. I love when several skincare products are combined into one. The sheet mask is saturated in potent clay/mud solution and does leave your skin moderately hydrated while the most magic happens with the pores. After removing the mask (more of a face cast at this point), my skin was left bright, smooth and my pores were blurred off the site of the Earth. I ran my face over with a toner in order to remove the clay residue (which was surprisingly little) and my pores remained small and face plumped and firm. I didn’t expect that this mask would work a s a facelift for me and I am happy it did. My skin remained silky smooth and poreless for an entire day. All my blackheads were smaller for an entire week after using this month. As Borat used to say, Wa-wa-wi-wa!

I recommend this mask for those who have oily, combo and normal skin. The removal process has pulled on some of my peach fuzz which may provoke more sensitive skin. That is the only reason I would not advise it for people with super sensitive skin type. For anyone else, you must try it!
