Warming charcoal treatment for perfectly clean and purified skin
The warmth of this self-heating mask helps to open up the pores so the charcoal and kaolin clay can help draw out impurities from deep within the skin. As well as purifying, the mask also helps to rebalance the skin's oil levels to clarify, cleanse and leave skin with a silky touch. Essential oil of myrrh helps smoothe and calm. This product also comes in a handy travel sachet.
1. Cleanse skin thoroughly to remove make-up and leave skin damp.
2. Twice-weekly, massage a thin layer of the mask over the face and neck.
3. Allow to warm and cool naturally while you relax for 5 minutes.
4. Rinse off with warm water or using a cloth.
5. Pat dry.
- Therapist's Tip: At the Spa we regularly use different masks in one facial. If you have combination skin use the mask only on congested areas, such as chin, nose and forehead. For drier areas such as the cheeks use our Moisture Boosting Mask.
It comes out as quite a thick, sticky consistency & I had to use a little water to really be able to spread it over my face, a little really goes a long way.The heating sensation was pleasant and, unlike some other masks, I did feel that it retained a little heat for the duration of wearing the mask and did not irritate my skin in any way at all.The mask was very easy to remove, just a wet cloth to the face and it rinsed away effortlessly, leaving my skin feeling very soft & smooth.
I alwyas like the idea of hot masks and then I'm always slightly disappointed when I use them. I think it's that at a spa the room is warmer and so the mask feels hotter for longer. This one actually starts off pretty warm but this fades very quickly. After that it's a nice if slightly sticky mask. The results are good in the sense that your skin feels clean and smooth but there isn't any real long term result. A nice product to use but not necessarily a must have.
