The mustard yellow goo did nothing for my looks, but I'm hoping it has done something for my pores, and those awful spots that lie just under the skin that I never had when I was younger, but now appear out of nowhere when I'm in my 40s. Bloody hell, doesn't acne know it's supposed to be targeting teenagers?
So I applied Masque Visage Purifiant L'Argile Jaune by Lovea (in English: purifying face mask with yellow clay) - hence the beautiful mustard complexion. It was easy to use - I smoothed a thick layer of the mask over my face and left it for five minutes, by which time it had started to dry, the mottled effect making me look even prettier. I then used cotton wool and warm water to remove the thick of it, finishing off with a warm water rinse.
I'm impressed. I could feel a slight tingle when the mask was working, which I took to mean something good was happening. I have a slight break out on my chin so in my mind I saw the clay beating the spots into submission, hence the tingling feeling. After rinsing and patting dry I thought those chin spots looked less red; my skin also feels softer. The hidden spots around my jaw line are still there, but that's no surprise, I doubt even kryptonite could get rid of them in one blast. I'm hopeful though that with a few more applications they will disappear properly back under the skin from which they threaten to appear.
|Here the product looks almost cream in colour, but believe me it was mustard yellow and went even darker when it began to dry|
I waited a few minutes before applying a gentle moisturiser, though I didn't use my usual serum first as I didn't want to overload my newly cleansed face.
The face mask also comes in pink clay for sensitive skin, green clay for oily skin, and the one I used was yellow clay for dry skin. Lovea products contain 98% natural ingredients and are organic, and you can find more of them here.
