We all love a good hydrating product to make the skin feel soft and glowing. But sometimes you need something that will give your skin a serious clean and exfoliation and that is when I reach for a detox mask like one of these… to purify the skin and reveal the glow underneath. These masks use key ingredients such as clay and charcoal to detoxify the skin and draw out toxins along with a mix of other fab ingredients, but also won’t dry the skin out in the process.

Emma Hardie Pink Clay Detox Mask

This offering from the ever innovative Emma Hardie is designed to deep clean, exfoliate and clarify while at the same time adding moisture. It has a creamy consistency that is easy to apply and smells gorgeous too. One of the things that I like about this is that while it does dry … it doesn’t actually dry into a hard “my face is going to crack” mask…you just rinse it off using a face cloth or muslin and voila…deep cleansed, pore minimised moist feeling skin.

Goldfaden facial detox clear mask

Love the way that my combination skin looks after using this: it purifies my complexion leaving my skin smooth and radiant, with my pores looking less obvious. Next I love the fact that it contains camphor and sulphur ….it feels amazing on the skin… cool, comforting and refreshing. If you like the scent of camphor you’ll love this. That this is for problem/ oily skins but it works well for combination skins too.
