Fifty Shades of Clay


As I lather my face with this beautiful and creamy clay mask by Kiehl’s, I realise I need to tell you all about how great it is.  I have been using this Rare Earth Pore Cleansing Masque twice a week for years now – Sunday night for a detox and deep clean (after a busy and hectic week/and fun weekend) and Wednesday night as a boost to keep up radiance.  Its incredible, and does what most face masks do which is to detox the skin of surface impurities, such as excess oil and dirt and minimises pores, but unlike other clay masks, it’s really gentle and nourishing.  Kiehl’s Rare Earth Pore Cleansing Masque contains Amazonian White Clay, Oatmeal and Aloe Vera which makes it gentle on the skin.

The container is huge, so a small amount goes a really long way.  The clay itself has no fragrance, which makes it seem more natural, and the texture is super creamy.  Once the mask has been applied to the skin, it quickly absorbs (but not too quickly) and continues to stay in the skin without flaking and crumbling.  I would recommend this product to every skin type, but in particular, for people with sensitive, combination, and oily skin – its a powerful product which is equally really kind.  After the first couple of uses, the results are really visible.  People with large pores, blackheads and those who breakout frequently will see a huge difference.  This clay mask really does refresh skin, making it look bright, more refined, clean, and radiant.
Available from Kiehls, Selfridges, Liberty, and Space NK
