This is one of those products that i feel i can review almost instantly after use, however for the sake of a more detailed review i have tested this Botanics Shine Away Iconic Clay mask out for a couple of weeks now.  

I have been having a couple of issues around my chin area, an outbreak of mountainous spots left me no option but to pile on the concealer, They were really sore too. I had run out of my 5 Minute detox mast from The sanctuary so i opted for this clay mask from Boots Botanics range. It was really cheap at £6.99 – i never pay much for clay products as it is a pretty cheap ingredient so do some research before spending your well earned pennies on over prices products. This little tube of clay is brilliant, in my opinion anyway. I have oily / Combination skin and as mentioned before often suffer from breakouts round the nose & chin. I have been using this two – three times per week for a couple of weeks now and have found it give me great results. After the first use my skin felt cleaner, less congested and super smooth. The sea silt (Clay) draws out Impurities from within the skin to reduce breakouts and blackheads. The mask also contains willow bark which is a natural source of salicylic acid which gently exfoliates and give this skin the soft texture and shine free skin.  One thing i would like to point out is that i do not have sensitive skin however sometimes as the mask is drying it can feel a little itchy and tight, The tightness is just the mask drying on the skin so its nothing to worry about, you may wish to give this a miss if you have particularly sensitive skin.  Have been really pleased with this mask and its one that is going to stick around in my skincare box for the foreseeable future. At £6.99 for 100ml I think its a bargain…..

Have you given it a go?
