Trialing the Vichy Pore Purifying Clay Mask
Hello everyone! It’s been such a long time since I did a skincare post but after receiving Vichy’s Pore Purifying Clay Mask in the mail and after a long study session with my friend Yasmin we decided to take it easy by watching Scream Queens and giving our skin a little treat!
The Vichy Purifying Mask smelt absolutely wonderful. It was really fresh without smelling too much like clay (I’ve had clay masks from Aesop that smell a bit overpowering with the stuff). We had a great time painting our faces with the mask before sitting down to watch an episode of Scream Queens. It’s my job to get Yasmin absolutely hooked on the show so at least one person doesn’t think my Chanel Oberlin obsession is weird. It took around 20-30 minutes for the mask to set fully on my face. I had put on a heavier layer than Yasmin.
This particular Vichy mask is supposed to purify congested skin. Since me and Yasmin are both oily-combination types it was perfect that we both try it out together! When I washed it off my face all excess oil on my skin had completely vanished. However, my skin didn’t feel tight or dry. Sometimes with clay masks it can feel like clay debris is all over your face but this came off nicely. I would definitely recommend this for skin that is prone shine or blemishes. As a student these kind of masks are perfect when I sacrifice the clarity of my skin to essay stress!
Yasmin agreed that the face mask gets a thumbs up. She particularly liked that it wasn’t at all drying. I think all women have tried a mask and felt super tight skin after taking it off! The Vichy mask is actually on sale right now at Escentual so if you fancy grabbing a bargain you can get it for just over £9 instead of the regular £14.

Have you guys tried any great face masks lately? I would love to try another hydrating one for the dryer areas of my skin!
