Why: Some masks can be a bother; you have to rub the clay/mud mixture over and over to get even coverage, then you have to scrub like a demon to get it off. Still, you wind up with this uncomfortably tight feeling and a dry residue.
Clarins got the mask method down pat. This lightweight cream glides on like a cream, smells like fresh roses and dries in five to ten minutes. Rinsing it off? Piece of cake. It washes away cleanly with a bit of cool water and leaves skin feeling refreshed and pores deeply clean.
It's perfect for people with oily/combo skin or for anyone needing a light mask to detoxify their skin during the hot and humid days of summer. Follow up with Clarins Ultra-Matte Rebalancing Lotion for even better results.
