After sharing my multi-use and single-use face mask collections for the past two Face Mask Fridays, I’m finally starting my reviews. The first up is the Soap & Glory No Clogs Allowed Face Mask which I picked up in my spring skincare haul. I’ve not really tried a lot of Soap & Glory skincare besides the moisturisers so I was really excited to give this a go.
This mask was developed as a self-heating deep pore detox mask. Since I’m my T-zone has been particularly oily recently this was a good mask for me to go for, as it’s recommended for oily-combination skin. I’ve never used a self heating mask as they sort of freak me out, but since I’m all about deep pore cleansing masks at the moment so I had to try this out. I’m going to be honest, I was sucked in by the colour changing properties of the mask. I also love the packaging of the mask as it feels more sanitary than a tub or a pot, although it can be difficult to remove more product from that tube than you require.
You definitely have to really shake this product up before using as the product separates easily and you’ll end up in an oily mess. It’s happened a couple of times to me, and it’s not a fun situation to get stuck in. This warms up as you massage it into your face, and once it has turned blue – well, changes to a slightly cooler off-white shade that how it started – you know that the mask it working.
Whilst this mask feels really nice on my T-zone and mattifies the area, I’ve used it on drier patches too and I wouldn’t recommend it for dry skin. I’ve been having an issue with dry cheekbones recently and this definitely didn’t help! I also probably suggest using it if you have particularly sensitive skin as the scrub particles are quite abrasive and my irritate the skin. Use of different skin types aside, I was really impressed with this mask. You can almost feel the gunk coming out of your face when you’re using this mask and this has become a weekly treat for my face. It’s definitely a mask that requires continued use to have a real effect, but it’s something that I’m happy to do as I love the mask.
The Soap & Glory No Clogs Allowed mask can be picked up for £11.50 from Boots, although it’s frequently on offer (1/3 off or buy one get one half price usually) so you can always get it a little cheaper. Will you be treating yourself?
