To Repurchase Or Not To Repurchase- Skin B5 Purifying Mask

I know full well that acne is not a teen problem. I wouldn't say that I suffer anything as severe as acne, but as an almost 40 year-old woman, I STILL experience break-outs. My skin has always got at least one pimple on my face. To help combat this problem, I like to incorporate a clay mask into my weekly skincare regime.

I got the opportunity to try Skin B5 Purifying Mask thanks to a prize I won on beauty website, Beauty Heaven some time ago.

Skin B5 is an Australian brand that is dedicated to solving problems arising from acne, but is also gentle enough for all skintypes. The formula includes the ingredients French Green Clay, Great Barrier Reef Seas Minerals, Aloe Vera and Vitamin B5, These ingredients work to target problem skin, yet soothes it, giving the skin a nutrient rich treatment.

The mask comes in a screw top jar.

There's a plastic shield under the lid to protect the product. The mask itself is not of the thick consistency that masks I have used in the past have been. It is like a thick moisturizer, which makes it easy to apply.

Would I repurchase? I would. I like that although this is a clay mask, it is a dream to apply, as it easily smoothed over my skin. It is the perfect treatment product for a quick fix. Forget 20 minutes, or even 10, 5 minutes is all that is needed for a deep cleanse and soothing finish. Of course, I often used it longer, but apart from a lovely cooling sensation, there were no other reactions.

Removal was also easy, no drying and cracking on the skin, just simple wiping off is needed. I do this with a warm face washer.

Well, my skin was left feeling refreshed, clean and soothed. I just could't help but touch my face after use.
