Is a Solution for:
Dull Skin, Oily Skin

Whereas Skin Perfection’s Clarifying Cleanser didn’t do much for me, for real clarifying power, I turn to Boscia’s Detox Mask ($25). While I can’t say all of Boscia’s products have worked for me in the past, this botanically-based clay mask has been living in my cabinet for years for good reason.

Before I go into all the goodies it contains, can I just say that one of the best things about this mask (pay attention busy moms/working women) is that you only have to leave it on for five minutes – it dries that quickly. I would consider my skin to be combination, and it works great for me. If you have skin dry this might be too drying for you, but for oily/combo it really does the job.

Like Teava’s mask, this one contains kaolin clay, which has shown to heal blemishes, extract dirt from pores, and bring about a healthy glow. It also has anti-microbial epilobium angustifolium (or Canadian Willowherb extract). Antioxidants jojoba leaf and green tea are in here as well to revitalize skin.

They say they add organically grown lavender and peppermint to minimize the appearance of pores, though Marta has researched lavender (oil) to be an irritant if used in large quantities and it may be advisable to limit direct contact with lavender oil on the skin. I personally have found anything but irritated skin after using this mask!

Everytime I use it, I feel my pores appear smaller and my skin more clear. I make sure I always use before any big events or before vacation…which is why I have it on right now before I catch a flight!
