First of all, Happy New Year to you all! This is my first New Year as a blogger and I'm loving it! I hope you all celebrated the New Year in style. I stayed in cuddled up on the sofa, watching the countdown on BBC, just the way I like it!
Today's review is all about a clay mask. Who doesn't like a good pampering session? I know that I love finding the time to put on a face mask, relax in the bath and just have some me-time. It's actually been a while since I've done that but, upon arrival of the Clayspray Toning White Clay With Aloe Vera* which was kindly sent to me, I had the perfect excuse!
I didn't get off to the best start with this product. When it arrived, it was quite damp. I'm not sure whether I got a bad bottle or whether it just got knocked a lot in transit but it was dripping all over which I wasn't expecting from a bottle of clay.
I later found out that that this product contains spring water and when I shook the can, more water leaked out onto my floorboards (thank goodness it wasn't carpet!).
Having cleared up the mess (again), I finally managed to use the Clayspray. It's definitely a lot more practical than clay mask sachets. With sachets, I find that there's always too much in one sachet and there's not a lot I can do with the remaining product so I end up just chucking it away. With this, you can dispense as much as you like using the pump.
This product is supposed to be good for sensitive skin and it claims to gently exfoliate, smooth, and soften the skin. I found that I needed a little more clay than usual because of the watery nature of it. The first time I attempted to use this, it wouldn't dry at all because it was just so watery. The second time I applied a thicker layer and it worked a lot better. The texture of this is so nice and it glides on really smoothly. It's one of the smoothest and silkiest clay masks that I've ever used.
This one is specifically for sensitive skin and it definitely didn't irritate my skin at all. It made my skin feel quite smooth and soft. I've also been using this on my hands as well and it's worked wonders. I've heard some negative things about some of the other Clayspray products which haven't been specifically geared towards people with sensitive skin, but this one was fine.
If this was an affordable product, I would most likely purchase this as it's so convenient to use. However, at £47.71 for a 125ml can, this certainly isn't something to purchase on a whim.
What are your thoughts? Would you buy this?
