The Clay Mask And Why It’s a Classic

My oily/acne-prone skin just loves a good clay mask.  Here’s a tip:

In the summer months when the skin gets extra oily, you can use your favorite clay mask as a cleanser.

GLAMGLOW capitalized on this by creating a spin off of their favorite masks and created these cleansers.  I have had them on my wish list for a while now, but until then, I’ve been using a new release from Caudalíe, the Instant Detox Mask.Caudalíe Mask

It reminds me a lot of the pink clay mask by Clarins called the Pure & Radiant Mask, but with more of the pore-clearing strength of the GLAMGLOW Supermud Clearing Treatment.  Which means you can see as the mask is drying where the oil is being pulled out from the pore.  It has that polka-dot look once the mask on your skin has dried.

Just like there are many types or species of lavender there are many types of clays.  They all do different things.  Their common denominator is they all come from the earth and can be beneficial for all skin types.  What are some of your can’t live without clay masks?
