Having some beautiful memories with Boots, I was kinda hooked onto their makeup range. I remember my friend who has got this extremely troublesome acne prone skin used to swear by this mask. This summer due to extreme heat my skin turned completely opposite to what it actually is & gave some horrible breakouts. I had to change my entire skin care routine with the replacement of my regular skin care products. I ordered some Boots stuff & also Boots No7 skin care (no makeup included!) through a friend. Will talk about other products later, for now let’s take a look at this ever so promising mask.
This purifying mask comes in a white coloured easy squeeze tube pack with flip flop cap. The cap is sturdy & ensures no product spillage. The texture of the mask is somewhere between a cream & lotion which is very easy to work with. It spreads easily on skin without any runny consistency & works upon effectively. The mask contains very tiny white exfoliating beads (Pumice Particles) which helps to get rid of those black heads though not completely & gives a fresh healthy looking radiant skin. It’s a very quick action mask & one does not need to wait for 20-30 mins to get it dried for rinsing away. All you need is to apply this on your damp skin, massage it for 1-2 mins & then rinse off after a minute. I use luke warm water to damp my skin as it helps to open up the blocked pores of the skin. The beads exfoliate my skin shedding the dead layer & the mask soaks up extra sebum or oil from the skin making it brighter, clearer & fresh. The mask gets warm on contact with water which you can feel on your skin & along with luke warm water pulls out the dirt & impurities from the blocked pores. I prefer last rinse with cold water to close the opened pores.
The mask never gave any kind of discomfort to my skin. It didn’t felt any dryness after using this nor did hydrate it either. But since a week I can feel slight stretchiness on my skin post use indicating that my skin has come back to normal dryness routine with the weather change. The mask got rid of my entire breakouts without leaving behind any scars or marks. This makes a great product for oily-combi skin which are prone to break outs & blemishes. This can be used anywhere & hardly takes 5 minutes to work with. It gives a fresh & clean skin in no time & makes a great emergency partner.
One has to take care that this is not an everyday use product as too much exfoliation can also damage your skin. It’s enough if used twice or thrice a week. Post use the skin feels fresh & clean for a day or two after which you can reuse it. I always used it in my night skin care regime after a complete day of work & worked magically on my breakouts.
Now coming to some unpleasing facts about this:
Unfortunately no ingredients list is mentioned on the product nor could I find on Boots website. But as I had seen my friend using this, ordered this without any doubts. Also I find it pricey compared to the quantity given. But I would highly recommend this mask to oily skin females if they can lay their hands on it to give it a try atleast.
