When I think face masques I think of high school and sleepovers. It’s just one of those ingredients that go into the recipe for an awesome girl’s night, but to be honest, when I graduated high school I somehow moved away from doing regular face masques. They all of a sudden seemed tedious and silly to do on your own, not to mention I didn't feel like I could find one that would actually help my super sensitive skin. That was until I heard about Clayspray. First off, they come in adorable easy to use spray bottles that are definitely travel ready which makes these face masques incredibly convenient for those women on the go.
So for my pampering night I started with the Hydrate H2O Water Spray which you spray on your face before applying the masque. This “mineral rich mountain spring water” helps to instantly moisten your skin before applying the masque and although seemed silly at first I think it definitely helped the effectiveness of the product. I now couldn't imagine putting a masque on without the instant moisture by Clayspray.
For my masque, I used Glow Red Clay with cacao which once I started putting on my face instantly smelled like amazing chocolate. I covered my face, making sure to coat my problem areas more carefully and then let it set. It dried pretty quickly, less than ten minutes and then I went to wash it off with hot water. Once I removed the entire masque I went back and sprayed the instant moisture H2O spray onto my skin. After the masque, my face felt tight and dry but I didn't want to use my normal moisturizer as I wanted to see what the red clay did to my skin over night. So with a few sprays of the mineral water on my face I went to bed.
When I woke up the next morning, I was not disappointed. To say I had excellent skin the week I tried this masque would be irrational. Just like any girl from time to time I have my skin issues and this week was not kind to me. However, after doing the red clay masque it was like the problem areas shrunk away. Even though I felt like my skin was tight the night before, when I woke up the next morning I could see why. I just applied my morning moisturizer and it felt like I was back to my fresh faced self.
So from high school to working woman I guess the story here is that it’s okay to invest in a face masque and you don’t need a girl’s night to do it. And although the treatment will be spaced out, this red clay definitely helped and improved my skin when I needed it most. I think we forget sometimes that our bodies and skin need some extra help, we are not machines. And this living and breathing shell of ourselves that is our skin needs some revitalizing sometimes. Clayspray helped my skin take a break and rejuvenate when it needed it most so I’ll absolutely be building this into my weekly routine....
