If you remember a couple of posts ago I did a Boots haul where I mentioned the Sensitive Deep Cleansing Face Mask. Well, now that I’ve put it to test, I can tell you all the details about it..
I love a good deep cleanse mask, in fact a good Sunday pamper day is not complete without one. Usually I good go for a classic clay mask, but I thought of giving a go to this one since my skin was misbehaving due to the cold spring weather. As instructed, I left it on my skin for 3 minutes and then rinsed it off with warm water. My skin was very soft and smoothed and not red at all, which is always good.
My first impression on it is that it was too balmy. When I read deep cleansing mask what I expected was a thick mask, the kind you feel working cleaning away your pores, but this one is nothing close. It comes out in a white cream and it doesn’t set on your skin, however it is easy to apply –think of the origin’s drink up intensive mask-. Yes, my skin was very hydrated and calmed after I used it thanks to the aloe vera on it, but I couldn’t really see the purifying effect it claims. My skin felt clean, but I don’t think it is deep cleansing at all. I would say it is more moisturising than other thing, even a budget alternative to the origins one. If you have very sensitive skin this might be a good one, it doesn’t have any fragrance and it is very mild.
For the ones –like me- that haven’t tried the Charlotte Tilbury Goddes Skin Clay Mask, I feel like both masks have the same intention and aim to work practically the same, according to the reviews from Amelia and Anna. Although as I said, I don’t think I will be using this if I want something to really deep clean my skin.
Kinda disappointed it wasn’t what I expected kinda excited know I have an actual reason to go back into Boots. Silver linings..
