Natures Inspiration Clay Mask and Lip-balm - Review

Blogging takes up an awful lot of time and, no matter how organised I try to be, sometimes it slips away! I moved house a few months ago and things got lost and misplaced! Whilst looking through the photos on my iPad recently, I realised I had never actually reviewed these products despite using them often for the last 4 or 5 months! So finally, here is my review!

Rhassoul Moroccan Clay Mask £10* and Peppermint Lip Balm £4*

Firstly the mask. This is a powder clay mask which needs to be mixed with water to create a paste. I am never really a fan of these because they are just so messy and I usually end up losing most of it down the sink. The instructions for this mask say that a floral water can be used instead and so I decided to take that advice. I chose a floral water that is in a spray applicator bottle. This worked so well as I could control how much I was adding and not flood the powder! Using this method I found it easy to mix the powder into a paste. I applied to my face and left for between 5 and 10 minutes.

As it dries the mask becomes tight on the skin. I use a cloth to wash this off and it comes away nicely. Underneath my skin feels soft and refreshed. I use this mask fortnightly and it keeps my skin looking bright and feeling soft.

I have recently read on the website that the high mineral content of his mask means it is great for drawing oil from the scalp. I am looking forward to experimenting with using this mask on my hair - more info to follow!

 

I love a lip balm, especially a peppermint one and so I began using this straightaway and have been using this ever since. I always have a few balm on the go at one time, usually one next to my bed for night time and a few in my bag. This is one I use for daytime use. The texture of this is very similar to Vaseline and lubricates the lips. I wouldn't say this absorbs into the lips as such and that is why I don't use it at night. What I do like is that this is lovely to refresh my lipstick. Especially with the Revlon Matte Balms, after a few hours of wear they look quite dry and so a little of this helps to moisten them and adds a shine to my lips without removing the colour!

 

These are lovely products which have slotted into my routine and have been getting regular use.
