So today's review is going to be on this little gem:
Soap and Glory describe this as 'A super self-heating 5 minute deep pore detox face mask with a free skin smoothing sponge. This is a deep cleansing treatment, ideal for greasy and blackhead prone skin.'
Now you may have seen this in my haul here and now because I have been using it for a while I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to show you how I use it step by step and give you a little insight to what I think of the product.
How to use:
I use this around 1-2 times a week depending on when I feel my skin needs it on cleansed skin so normally after I have just used Soap and Glory's Peaches and Clean cleanser.
I take around a grape sized amount on my finger tips and massage this into the skin
As soon as the product comes into contact with the skin you feel a slight warming sensation. Once on the skin I then wet my hands and rub the product in even more and this is where the fun begins!
The warming sensation increases and this is when it starts to turn blue! Within the product are little blue beads and once activated on the skin by application this is what gives the warming sensation on the skin. The warming sensation is not harsh or uncomfortable, I personally find it quite soothing :)
Once your face is pretty much blue, like above, you then have a choice to use this as a quick refresh, in which case, you can take it off straight away OR you can leave it on for around 3-5 minutes for more of a deep down clean.
Once you are ready you use the little sponge included with the product to clean it off:
I do love this product. I love the whole application of it and the fact you can actually feel it working once it is on the skin. Now the warming sensation it gives may not be to everyone's cup of tea but this is what makes me love the product that little bit more.
Now once removed from the skin it leaves it feeling so soft and just thoroughly cleansed, almost as though every bit of dirt, grime and left over make-up has been removed and all your left with is deep down cleansed skin... Lovely!
Now I suffer from blackheads on my nose and when using this product I do notice that each and every time I use this they seem to be disappearing. Now I'm not going to say they have all disappeared and I have the clearest nose (I wish) But I don't think any product could produce them kind of results no matter how much it claimed too.
I just look forward to using this product, and to be honest that in itself is saying something!
It retails at £11 which isn't exactly on the cheap side but then again I am willing to pay that because it performs so well and is a reasonable sized product and to be honest it's soap and glory! :)
