I love a clay mask! My favourite being the Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask but it can be a little pricey at £24.00. Although I have to admit it’s totally worth the money, I really wanted to find a cheaper alternative – I’m trying to save the pennies at the moment for my Wedding!
Roaming the aisles of Boots, I discovered that quite a lot of brands were now bring out their own clay masks which is amazing and I’m going to make it my mission to try them all and report back. This time however I settled on trying the Sanctuary Spa Thermal Detox Mask. Reason being it was on offer at £6.67 (rrp. £10) but loved that is was a thermal mask.
The Sanctuary Spa 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask is a clay based face mask to cleanse and purify your skin. The self-heating mask warms the skins once you apply to your face and starts to open up your pores. The charcoal and kaolin clay then helps draw out impurities within your skin. It also contains soothing and calming myrrh oils which leaves your skin feeling cleansed and super soft. The thing I love most about this mask is that you only have to leave on your skin for 5 minutes to feel the benefits, which means it’s so much easier to incorporate in your skin care routine. It’s also non-drying so it doesn’t feel uncomfortable on the skin either. Rather than using it as a daily cleanser, I tend to use this more of a mask 1 to 2 times a week and I’ve found it’s helped to balance and calm my skin a the while keeping any spots or blemishes away – win win for me!
If you’re new to clay based skincare, I would definitely recommend The Sanctuary Spa 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask as an introduction to clay masks, plus it doesn’t break the bank either.
Have you tried the Sanctuary Spa Thermal Detox Mask before? Is there another other high-street clay face mask you would recommend me trying next?
