If you’ve read my blog before, you’ll probably know I’m a big fan of sheet masks. Personally, there’s nothing not to love when it comes to them – they’re portable, you can choose a product which fits your skins needs each and every time, the products are fresh every time you open them, and they’re incredibly travel friendly. Up until now, the sheet masks I’d used had been squarely for moisture, but when Starskin released these Lift Away Mud versions, I couldn’t resist! There are a few mud masks to choose from in the range, and the first one I opted for was the Green Tea Clay version. Promising to purify, smooth, tighten and brighten skin, this sounded like just the thing for a weekend pick me up!
Even though it comes in the form of a sheet mask, Starskin have managed to include a whole host of great-for-skin ingredients. Kaolin clay, Green Tea Powder, and Hydrolyzed Collagen are all in there to work their magic. To use, I first wash and cleanse my face, and give it a bit of a gentle exfoliation. Then I popped on the mask. Unlike most, this one is divided into 2 parts, and it really adheres to skin easily, and it smells lovely and fresh. I just leave it on for about 20 minutes, although you can leave it on for up to 40. Like a regular mud mask, Starskin’s tightens, and since you have to peel it back off, I’d recommend that you don’t let it touch your hairline or eyebrows. Once I peeled it off, I gave my skin another quick rinse, then followed up with a moisturising serum and night cream. It leaves skin noticeably brighter and tighter feeling. It also feels wonderfully cleansing – it’s a perfect choice for my Sunday mask tradition!
