Elemis FreshSkin Deep Clean Purifying Face Mask

I can’t believe I’m actually doing this, but this is me trying out the new Elemis Deep Clean Purifying Face Mask from the recently launched FreshSkin range.

I took a sachet of this on holiday, hoping it would counteract the drying effects of the flight, the sun and the general nutritional abuse I normally put myself through while on holiday.

I normally find clay-based masks very heavy for my type-normal skin, but this one felt light, soft and smooth to apply.  I managed to keep it happily on my face for the alloted 10 minutes without itching to take it off (and also managed to scare just about every living being in my vicinity with my monster face into the bargain!).  It smelt OK too – another bonus.

Excuse the messy application around the eyes,
I had some “help” from some tiny little five-year-old hands!

It was also easy to wash off, and I could feel the benefits immediately.  My skin felt plumper, softer and just… well, younger.  The effects were long lasting, well into and after my return to London more than a week later, and were visible to those close to me too. (The Other Half commented on how well I looked, and comments from him of that sort are few and far between).  It makes it a perfect mask to use before a big event.

I’m looking forward to trying out the other products from the  FreshSkin range, especially the Magical Moisture Quenching Face Mask, and I’ll definitely be using this particular mask again.
