Detoxifying masks are very important to those with oily skin and those who have easily clogged pores like I do. If I go on the week without using a detoxifying mask, I will surely have a pimple the next week. Obviously, I am very particular about the detoxifying #facialmask I use because my skin will surely suffer if I’m not.
The Instant Detoxifying Mask from Caudalie promises to draw out excess oil and toxins, combat congestion, and eliminate dead skin cells. It contains grape marc to detoxify, pink clay and coffee to absorb blackhead-causing dirt and excess sebum, papaya enzymes to invigorate and brighten, and organic essential oils (lavender, cypress, sage, and sandalwood) to provide anti-bacterial properties and nourish. This #facemas is also vegan, non-toxic, cruelty-free, safe for sensitive skin and pregnancy, and free of all fillers, gluten, GMOs, and synthetic chemicals.
The texture of this mask is runny and but feels creamy once applied. It has a nice pink hue which is rare, at least for the masks I have in rotation. Because of the texture, it’s very easy to apply. It smells like unripe grapes, fresh and a bit leafy. It feels tight after about a minute around the drier parts of my face, the u zone. The tightness isn’t like most detoxifying masks that feel like your skin is being pulled up.
With this one, it feels like being pushed down, like it absorbs the dirt from the pores. At least that’s how it felt. Because of the creamy texture, this would require more time to rinse and remove but I didn’t mind it. The creamy texture made the mask feel gentle on the skin. I like using this once a week as a detoxifying mask that is best applied during a good skin week when all you need is to prevent breakouts, not fight them. It leaves the skin thoroughly cleansed and bright after use. I would recommend this to those with sensitive and extremely oily skin who want to prevent breakout because I never experienced one while using this. This is also useful during a busy week because it only requires 10 minutes to dry.
