It pains me to say that as a beauty blogger I can be a bit lazy when it comes to using treatments and masks. So when I got the opportunity to try this Clayspray Ginseng Therapy I was most interested in the way that it’s packaged and applied. It seemed simple and I like simple!
The Clayspray Ginseng Therapy set has white clay and ginseng and H2O Green Tea water sprays. They are the first emulsified ‘clay in spray’ treatments. They are fortified with hydrating hydrogel, spring water and plant extracts that work to purify, exfoliate and remove impurities in the skin.. It claims to increase moisturisation up to 12% and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
There are a few different formulas but I chose this Ginseng one as it’s perfect for mature, fatigued skin and claims to tighten and brighten. The H2O Green Tea Water Spray tones and soothes and is free from chemical nasties. It’s free from preservatives, parabens, PEG, phenoxyethanol, artificial colours and perfumes and is suitable for vegans and vegetarians and animal friendly.
So how did I get on? I decided to put on the mask before my bath and then set the timer for 20 minutes, the prescribed time for mature skin. I first sprayed my face with the water spray as a base for the clay. It was lovely and refreshing and I was really looking forward to applying the clay. But this is where things went a bit wrong because I was expecting the clay to spray……..Clay, Spray, right? Well, not really. I thought that maybe the clay was in a microfine spray and that you would layer it up and it would be a mask. The instructions just said where to apply the clay and in what order. So I pointed it towards my face and pressed….and the clay slopped all down my top. That’s when the penny dropped that I was supposed to apply the clay with my fingers. Well once I’d cleared up the spillage I spread the clay over my face and neck. It was easy, just not what I had expected. I got in the bath and relaxed. The mask tightened and dried out and felt like it was doing good. The water spray can be used to dampen the mask for those with sensitive skin or those who don’t like the tight feeling.
When the time was up I used the water spray to emulsify the mask and it wasn’t too difficult to remove. And then I felt my skin. Wow, it felt amazing! The softest I’ve felt my skin ever. Even with all the amazing products I’ve tried out that was the best.
So, I only have one criticism of the product and that’s maybe that it’s shouldn’t be Clay Spray but Clay and Spray. Perhaps a little more explanation in the leaflet would have helped too.
What are your favourite masks? Have you got in a mess with them like me?
