1. Fresh Umbrian Clay Face Treatment, 3.4 oz for $48.00
Here is another one of my masks. This mask is interesting because it can treat different skin issues. The brand literature says that you can use this as an exfoliator, face cleanser, spot treatment, and mask. This mask is so expensive that the idea of using it as a face cleanser, would the be equivalent of flushing dollars down a toilet. I do not feel that is the most efficacious use of the mask for the price.
This mask can treat the worst acne outbreaks I have. It can treat sensitized, irritated skin. It can be left on for HOURS and continuously suck up oil. I can even sleep with it on and it will not irritate or dry out my skin, but it will continue to suck up oil.
This mask does have an interesting silt-like texture. When it dries, you can see all the clay particles. This comes from the main ingredient, which is Fuller’s Earth. Research on this type of clay shows that it is a fine-grained, sedimentary clay that can absorb excess oil really well, while soothing and conditioning the skin.
Any mask that can treat acne, treat sensitive, irritated skin, and powersuck oil from my skin without drying it out, is worth it’s continued place in my staples list. I have purchased this mask three times and I will continue to do so.
The one annoying aspect of this mask is that when you wash it off, you have to make sure to get all of the tiny silt-like particles out of your hairline, and around the edges of your skin.
