Liz earle's deep cleansing mask is targeted at people with oily, combination and problem prone skin. It deeply cleanses the skin to remove any impurities and help control excess oil. This mask contains manuka honey which calms the skin, clay with absorbs oil and removes impurities and many others ingredients such as aloe vera and geranium oil. This product does have a strong smell due to the manuka honey and rose scented geranium but it's not a bad smell and is not as prominent when dried on the skin.
Before application I clean my face with my Liz Earle's cleanse and polish to ensure that no impurities get absorbed into my skin. Once applied the mask dries really quickly and hard and doesn't crack or crumble throughout wearing time. I like to apply this to areas which need it most, such as my oily chin, forehead and nose and any places where a breakout has occurred. I leave this on for around 10 minutes and wash it off using warm water with one of the two sponges provided.
Once it's washed off I tone and moisturise as normal. What I love most about this mask is that even though it absorbs and controls excess oil it really isn't drying at all! My skin feels clean, looks fresh and most of all my oily skin is controlled for a couple of days. If I have a break out I find that this helps to clear it up a little and keep the area clean preventing any more nasties appearing!
