Today I thought I would treat myself to a face mask I picked up in the Feel Unique sale last week. I have a bit of a break out going on and so my face could use a treat! Lovea are normally known for sunscreen I believe so this was my first time trying out one of their face products.
The version I picked up was the Lovea BIO Purifying Face Mask with Pink Clay for Sensitive Skin. They also have a Green Clay version for oily skin and a Yellow Clay one for dry skin. They really cater to everyone!
As I suffer from Rosacea and KP on my face, finding a mask that doesn’t irritate my skin can be tricky. However! This one did not irritate my face at all which was a big plus right away! It is intended to “re-mineralise and give uniformity to the skin”. I am not even sure what that means so cannot really say whether or not this was achieved… LOL
First off, this was NOT PINK! It looked like fake tan in the bottle and had a very very liquidy, runny consistency. You are meant to apply a thick layer to your skin (avoiding the eyes) and leave on for 5 minutes. You then rinse off before it has dried with warm water and apply your usual moisturiser.
Strangely enough, I found that it started to dry before I even finished applying it. So that did not leave much time to enjoy before washing it off. This is clearly an ORANGE, clay coloured mask but who cares. It’s not like the colour matters as masks are made to wear behind closed doors! The scent was quite strong as the mask began to dry and I could smell the rose but also talc. It was quite an old woman scent if I can say that!!
Results wise, this mask did calm my spots down which was surprising to me as I had to wash it off before even 5 minutes passed due to how fast it dries! Overall, I was happy with the results, my skin was not irritated, it felt very soft and my little bit of acne was no longer so red and angry!
You get a lot of product for a great price so I would be happy to use this a few times a week. It is also 99.2% organic, paraben free and contains aloe vera and shea butter. It also claims to be fragrance free which it may be in terms of no added fragrance but it still smells incredibly strong naturally.
If you would like to try this mask, you can pick it up from feelunique.com for the great price of €7.43. They also stock the green and yellow versions for the same price, for those of you with different skin types :).
Until next time! xxxx
