About two months ago, I received a sample from Sephora of this exfoliating clay mask by Philosophy. I normally am not a fan of clay masks because they are usually too drying for my skin, but this one is magic. When the sample ran out, I hurried to buy the full size version.
This mask is my go-to when I'm in need of smoothing and a glow. It is formulated with salicylic acid (which is great for acne prone skin), oil-absorbing white clay, and gentle, naturally based exfoliants. It's almost like you get two treatments in one because after the mask dries and you start to wash it off, the exfoliants come into play. You won't believe how smooth your face will feel after. Your moisturizer will absorb better, as well, because of the impurities you will have removed.
I use the mask as instructed, about twice a week, for 5-10 minutes at a time. For very dry or sensitive skin types, less often might be better. As always, stop usage if you notice any irritation after. Hope this mask by Philosophy works well for you, too!
