BEAUTY: Avon Clearskin Pore Penetrating Black Mineral Mask

Avon Clearskin Pore Penetrating Black Mineral Mask (what a mouthful) – £5.00

I mentioned this little beauty back in my latest Avon “haul” and thought it was time that I shared my thoughts after a few weeks of use. Basically, I love it. I’ve been saying that a lot recently but as I’ve been limiting my purchases to things that I actually think I’ll like it’s only natural! This mask claims to leave skin “deeply cleansed, refreshed and matte” while also unblocking pores, and truth be told I think it really lives up to those claims.

I use this mask once or twice a week in the evenings, I apply it in the usual way then wait for it to turn grey (about 10-15 minutes) before using the little exfoliating face brush that came free with it and an old muslin cloth to remove it. I find that afterwards my skin doesn’t look any different, but come morning it’s blatantly obvious that my skin is clearer than before as well as feeling softer without excess oil. I tend to use this when my skin is looking a bit dull but if it’s been quite irritated or I have a breakout I’ll opt for something from Lush instead.

I’ve had this mask for nearly a month now and barely made a dent in the tube so it’s definitely worth the money. When I eventually finish it I’ll undoubtedly be repurchasing, it’s a real staple in my skincare collection.

Have you tried this mask?
