BOTANICALS CLAY MASK / CLEANSING MELT FIRST IMPRESSIONSSaturday, May 07, 2016
In the past few years I've really got into Skincare products and face masks so I love finding new products from different brands to test out and review. I have so many new Skincare products I may even do a Skincare review one a week to catch up with my posts! This week's Skincare is by Botanicals who kindly sent me two sample pots of their Mandarin Cleansing melt and their Green Clay Mask. Botanicals products are all natural and organic so I couldn't wait to try them.
My first impression on opening the pots where that the products smelt amazing! Such fruity fresh scents which are my favourite scents anyways so that kind of won me over straight away. The sample pots where very small but Botanicals assured me that a little goes a long way and I have to say they weren't lying about that! I've used both of these more than 3 times each and I've still got a few applications left.
The Green Clay Mask is a strange one however! I was expecting it to be more of a clay consistency but it's more of an oily balm than a mask. Once I'd asked how the mask was supposed to be used it made sense. You can either apply it straight to your face for a less mask like finish or mix it with a little flower water to create more of a paste consistency. Leave it on your face for 10 minutes and then remove it with a warm cloth.
I haven't yet mixed it with flower water but I've used it on its own and its beautiful! It leaves my skin not only smelling amazing but feeling so soft.
The Mandarin Cleansing melt is phenomenal! It's really quite oily but it feels great when it's melting into your skin! My face just feels so supple and smooth once I've used this especially when I've applied it in circular motions.
This one really does go a long way and you only need a pea size amount for your whole face. As I mentioned it smells Divine and such a fresh citrus scent which I'm always a huge fan of.
What Botanicals states about the mask and the melt...
"Mediterranean green clay helps draw out impurities and eliminate dead skin cells. While cold-pressed avocado and jojoba, rich in essential fatty acids, leave your skin feeling soft, smooth and clear.
This products is concentrated (does not contain water) so only a small amount is needed. Which also makes it great value for money as a little goes a long way."
"We call our uniquely formulated cleansers ‘cleansing melts’ because they have a semi-solid consistency, which gently melts on contact with skin. They are designed to penetrate the skin's lower layers; removing impurities and restoring natural balance. And are based on the homeopathic principle of 'like cures like'.
Conventional cleansers can strip the skin of its natural oil, forcing it to go into overdrive to produce more oil, and causing the skin to become imbalanced and problematic.
Botanicals cleansing melt is different. It will dissolve and lift make up, dead skin cells and other impurities - whilst retaining the skin's natural balance.
When removed with a hot cloth, pores will open, and all of the impurities which cause dull and blemished skin will be gently released and wiped away.
Not only do the precious oils in organic products help retain natural balance, they also have a healing, protective and moisturising effect on the skin.
Botanicals Gentle Cleansing Melt is ideal for normal, sensitive and problem skin. Choose our rose & melt if your skin is mature or prone to dryness."
I've really enjoyed using these products Because they feel so luxurious when I'm using them and they leave my skin feeling so nice.
