The spring cleaning/detox themes continues……
Chantecaille Detox Clay Mask is a highly effective healer that relies on kaolin, a wonderfully absorbent and healing black clay, known for its purifying and detoxifying qualities. The formula contains:
– Pure Honey – soothes and nourishes skin.
– Rosemary, a purifying anti-bacterial agent – helps regulate sebum.
– Peppermint Oil and Burdock Root – purify skin and tighten pores.
– Rose, Mimosa, Jasmine and Narcissus flower waxes – natural anti-inflammatories that form a healing and regenerative base.
– The essential oil from Sweet Orange Peel – soothes, softens and regenerates tired, stressed skin.
This masks has also aromatherapeutic properties: Rosemary is stimulating and purifying, contributing to clarity of mind. Rose soothes and centers, imparting a sense of well-being. Jasmine aligns the physical and spiritual, releasing a joyous feeling of confidence.
This non drying clay mask ( Well, it doesn’t dry & draw like the conventional clay mask ) is my current favourite detoxifier. I loves the creamy texture of this dense, aromatic mask. As you could see, Detox Clay is dark ( black ) in colour and thus could be scary & messy to use.
I enjoy its rosemary scent on top of the honeyed base. Feels kind of astringency yet nurturing. Unfortunately, the fragrance kind of evaporated soon after application. This mask spreads like a well whipped paste and turns into a murky grey shade as it settles. It doesn’t irritates my skin or makes my complexion feels taut, tight or uncomfortable. Just be warned that this dark paste will optically emphasises the size of your facial pores as it “dries”. I usually leave it to work for 15-20 minutes.
I use a clean flannel cloth to remove Detox Clay, and yes, this mask stains. ( nothing a good detergent & wash cycle can’t undo ) My complexion looks clearer & more refined, feels purified & smoothed after rinsing it off. I enjoyed using this, in fact, I am very tempted to use it 2-3 times a week.
Please bare in mind that I loves the scent of rosemary & honey, have tons of muslin clothe, and I am an avid laundry boy. If you prefer mask that dries, draws & cracks, or hate pungent rosemary /stains, Chantecaille Detox Clay will drives you nuts!
