CLAYSPRAY RED CLAY MASQUE

 

You might know if your a long time reader of Krystel Couture that I’v got a huge obsession for clay based face masks. My obsession first started when I treated myself to the GLAMGLOW Youth mud mask a good couple of years back now! The way the clay masks draw out dirt and impurities really is astonishing and definitely an advancement in cosmetic technology.

Being a huge sufferer with the occasional blemish, that just doesn’t want to budge, these masks really help to keep my skin in great condition. I used to suffer from really bad acne and scarring but luckily this isn’t much of a problem anymore, but because of my pat I do tend to get a huge breakout at once in the same area of my face, mostly the chin. This can be a problem and tough to tackle, so normally I apply a good clay mask once or twice a week to really clean out my pores and treat scarring the blemishes may have caused. If I’m not using masks I always make sure to apply my blemish serum most nights to try out the spots, making them easier and safer to remove once they dry out.

 

What attracted me most to the Clayspray red clay masque was the fact the ingredients are 100% natural and contain 100 millions year old clay mined from the mountains in Iberian Peninsula. I actually received three samples to try out and not the full product, but I’ve heard they come in a spray like pump making it more hygienic and this also stops the clay from drying out. You soon notice when using the clay masks how quick these actually do dry out and it’s super quick, let me tell you!! I’ve already used the other two masks before doing these photos, we’ve all been there right? but as soon as you open the pack and start applying the mask to your face it starts drying up almost instantly, as soon as it comes into contact with the skin.

 

The clay mask is damp, but once applied it starts to harden up and let the pores appear, as it deeply cleans the skin (if your used to using GLAMGLOW Supermud, you’l understand this process and find it somewhat similar). Let me tell you this has to be one of the most messiest mask I’ve ever used! Definitely a shower job! Removing this over the sink really isn’t a option, unless you want a huge mess and brown liquid staining the sink. It’s a lot of work to clean up after removing if you do opt for removing it over the sink! I prefer the shower as that way theres zero mess and you know every things completely removed. Having oily skin I loved this mask and really noticed the benefits after trilling the masks for a month, I used one sachet per week and because I have a small face I managed to get two uses out of each sample pack.

 

It leaves my skin so soft, and I also noticed a huge reduction in my blemishes over a period of two weeks and they just looked less fiery and starting to clear up! Another thing I liked about this mask was the fact it really draws out impurities and you can see it working at the same time. Pores where left much smaller and my skin just felt really clean and looked naturally glowing, it’s definitely a mask I’d love to buy again in the full version and try out other products from the range as I’m a sucker for anything natural that really gets into the deeper layers of the skin and gives them a good clean out. This mask is a red clay base with the added bonus of spring water and hydrogels for extra moisture where your skin needs it most! This face treatment is aimed towards those with more oily/blemish prone skin, whilst absorbing impurities and sebum, in return leaving the skin smooth and cleansed with a fresh matte finish. This mask also contains iron, and comes in suitable for using on the face, neck and back, basically anywhere prone to blemishes.

 

What’s your thoughts on this mask? Do you like clay face masks?

  • I absolutely adore using clay masks but haven’t tried this before, I definitely want to buy it but would have to make sure my application skills were on point in case it dried out, I am SO clumsy seriously haha oh dear! xxx

    • This isn’t to hard to apply but it does dry quicker compared to the GLAMGLOW masks 🙂 so you have to be extra quick but it’s not a big deal if it does dry, normally I will apply more over problem areas, such as my chin xx

  • Lui

    I love this mask! It keep my skin looking flawless always and hydrated. It’s a great impurity lifter.

  • Haha clay masks look so fun! This one sounds like a really good one – it is great that it reduces your blemishes. Great review, really liked reading it so you’ve got yourself a new follower!

    • Thanks Ellie, and it’s a great mask to try especially if your wanting a nice pamper night or spa like treatment from home xx

  • Ellie Adams

    This mask sounds amazing, I love clay masks but find that they can be quite oily, so this sounds perfect. There’s nothing more satisfying than seeing your impurities extracted after one of those masks (sexy times) ha 😉

    • This one isn’t oily, inf act it’s more drying as its marketed for oily skin types but you do get other versions from the brand for different skin concerns xx

  • I always find clay masks are perfect for blemish prone skin as it really gets all the oils and dirt out 🙂 this ones definitely worth a try and very similar to the GLAMGLOW range but smells much different almost earthly like with a mineral sort of smell, almost like zinc or iron xx

  • This is a great review! I used to using the natural face masks from Lush but I’m always up for trying new products 🙂

    Have a fabulous week, Hayley x
