Boots 3 Minute Clay Face Mask | Review

Hi Beauty Lovers!

Today I'm back with a skin care product that'll be sure to detox your skin after the over indulgent long weekend we've all just experienced.

Several weeks ago I was stocking up on cotton wool pads in Boots when I spotted a skin care sale, and I'm a sucker for lotions and potions so I impulse bought a fair few items.

I had been researching clay face masks and  asking fellow beauty bloggers which clay masks they swore by, but then I saw this product included in the sale and thought ahh why the hell not?

The packaging is not the most eye catching, but for 75p I really cannot complain. It holds a modest 50ml of product in a squeeze top bottle.

Spoiler alert...I LOVE THIS PRODUCT...That been said let me tell you why I love it so much!

The smell is so light and refreshing, I usually don't buy heavily perfumed products as my under eye area is very sensitive, but this product is so lightly scented that it does not irritate my skin one bit. If your like me and think the longer you leave something on the better the results will be, then you'll do exactly what I did...leave it on for 20 minutes, then struggle to wash the damn thing off, I was finding green flakes in my hair for days. The formula is so lightweight that it dries almost instantly, so 3 minutes is more than sufficient.

Boots recommend using it twice weekly, but I use mine when my skin needs a detox or when I want a midweek pick-me-up, I use an old foundation brush to paint it on and really get the spa treatment feeling.

Using the LUSH Ocean Salt Face Scrub (review here) beforehand has really maximised the effects and drawn out some of my most stubborn impurities. Even after the first application my skin felts so soft and moisturised and looked healthy and glowing, which on porcelain skin is hard to achieve.

Well I got change from £1 so the price is spot on, it usually retails at £1.50, so full priced it not going to going to make your bank balance cry, like some of the other clay face masks on the market.

This is my first time using a clay mask and for once I'm glad I impulse bought, I've saved myself quite a few penny's to put towards other items on my beauty wish list.

At the minute Boots have a 3 for £3.00 offer on all there skin care products so you can stock up on some beauty essentials.

Let me know if you've discovered any cheap hidden gems that I should check out.
