How do you use it?
This is definitely a second PM cleanse or a morning cleanse. OR a less-frequent mask for skins that need a little ooomph.
Apply a small amount (10p or a quarter for US readers) to dry skin – (the pack says damp skin but I prefer dry), massage in and remove with a warm flannel
Massage in to dry skin and leave for a few minutes – they clay starts to gently harden and it literally turns into a clay mask – which you then remove with a warm flannel
*A reader just asked me on twitter why you would need this if you have the Glow Mud Mask – the mask is a proper heavy-duty, clay/bentonite mask that is great for impurities and general mask-like duties that does not contain glycolic acid.
The cleanser is a cleanser that contains glycolic acid and clay to give it extra oomph.
One is a cleanser that you can use as a quick mask. One is a proper mask.
What’s good about it?
This has the potential to be a cult product for Pixi. Think Ceramic Slip, except more clay, not foamy and much more affordable.
It does have a little kick – due to the glycolic, so if you don’t like that feeling then it’s not for you. It’s not however, strong.
I use on those days when you want more of a deeper cleanse, or days when I have breakouts.
What’s not so good about it?
Not much so far – you couldn’t use it around the eyes, but then that’s pretty obvious.
Where to use in your routine?
AM or second cleanse PM.
