Review: Aromatherapy Associates Deep Cleanse Face Mask

"A treatment mask to draw out impurities, and refresh and revitalise your complexion. Particularly effective for deep cleansing the pores, anti-bacterial lavender and ginger are combined with natural clay and silt to absorb excess oils and replenish vital minerals. "

I love a good pamper session and it wouldn't be complete without a lovely, deep cleansing clay mask.
I used the Aromatherapy Associates Deep Cleanse Face Mask 5-6 times in the past 2 weeks and I am very pleased with the way it worked on my skin. 

I think I should mention my skin type etc, before I start the review. Well,  I used to have normal/combination skin most of my life, but recently it has been more on the normal/dry side. Winter, central heating etc... I am feeling it! The condition of my skin really improved since I changed my skincare routine and added Hydraluron to it -to boost hydration, but I am still struggling with some nasty breakouts. 

The AA Deep Cleanse mask does an amazing job at clearing my skin from all the grime and it really does draw out impurities. I mean it! It is very powerful and brings all the blemishes to the surface of the skin and 2-3 days later, my skin looks very clear and lovely with no nasty breakouts hiding underneath, ready to come out. It also clears pores, so you will be able to notice visible effects after each use. It contains freshwater mud, ginger and lavender and it smells really nice - refreshing and relaxing - perfect!  Oh, and the texture feels very luxurious. The mask is also antiseptic and anti-bacterial and helps to heal fresh breakouts and reduce any redness or inflammation.  I apply it allover my face and leave it on for 10 minutes if I need a proper deep cleanse to draw out impurities, but I also apply it directly to fresh breakouts and leave it on overnight. When I wake up, the breakouts are completely gone!!! Amazing! I am very impressed with this face mask and I would definitely recommend it to anyone with breakout prone skin. It works wonders! I like to use a hydrating mask after this one, to keep my skin soft and supple, but you don't have to do it, because the AA mask doesn't have a drying effect on the skin, it feels surprisingly  moisturising to be honest. It is quite expensive, but in my opinion it is worth every penny! Luxurious, effective and full of lovely ingredients!

You can buy AA products directly from the Aromatherapy Associates Website  , from Feelunique and Space NK etc...
