Clark's Botanicals Intense Radiance Mask - Into The Gloss

Clark’s Botanicals Intense Radiance Mask

Clark's Botanicals Intense Radiance Mask

With all the products on rotation in my routine (and yours too, I assume), it can be difficult to tell which ones are actually working: a serum one morning, a cream the other, and that fancy eye concentrate? It’s really only given a chance to shine every fourth night, when I remember to apply it. And then, you know, you’re on to the next potion before a bottle’s finished. That’s the thing about a facial mask, though—instant results are expected. You want to come out of it a changed woman. When I emerged from my bathroom having used Clark’s Botanicals new Intense Radiance Mask on Sunday, I wasn’t Gisele, but I was impressed. The formula is white clay based—for drawing out impurities—but founder Francesco Clark spent two years making sure it wasn’t drying and that it would combat redness and irritation. Translation: a deep cleaning mask suitable for sensitive, reactive skin (hallelujah). Key ingredients include a moisture-retaining Algae extract and collagen boosting complex, both of which firm and lift the skin, and an "organic Alpine plant" called White Genepi that has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. Basically, it does everything I want a mask to do: calm me down, plump me up, and tackle blackheads…in twenty minutes. Full disclosure: it even magically drained a particularly ominous blemish on my chin, no pinching required (though the steamy washcloth at the end might have played a hand there). Now I just need to make room in my medicine cabinet for the weighty green jar—this guy’s moving in.

    I will certainly try this mask. It is so hard to know what products to trust so seeing as you can attest to it's effectiveness I will give it a go, for months I have been looking for a really good mask.
    Thanks for the review.

    This review is awesome! I personally use the Bliss Steep clean facial mask, and the results sound so similar. I think I actually read about it on your blog, a while ago, in the Top Shelf category.

    This mask sounds fantastic-and like I need to try it. I'm a sucker for masks, they provide immediate benefits. I love using them before going out at night, as they instantly rev up my complexion and leave me glowing and clear. If you find clay masks to be drying, a simple trick is to apply it more thickly. It will still draw out impurities but without the drying, skin feels pulled tight, effect.

    I just wanted to say thanks so much for the hot washcloth tip! I have added it to my evening regimen and it has made an immediate and undeniable improvement in my skin. I don't know why or how but it seems to just calm my skin down in every way, less dry, less broken out....prettier. Not to mention the simple pleasure of a moment of relaxation at the end of the day! Thanks again!
