Clay masks belong the in the skincare hall of fame as a non-negotiable part of your regimen. Unless your visage is majorly dry or sensitive, everyone can benefit from the deep cleaning and oil-absorbing properties of clay, especially in the summertime heat. Problem is, these adored masks can be an absolute mess to apply and rinse off, which can result in less frequent use.
It seems as though the skincare Gods heard our prayers and delivered us Patchology SmartMud No Mess Mud Masque Single Facial Sheet ($8).
Before this product, we relied on our favorite sheet masks to hydrate, plump, and brighten our skin. This is the first we have found that includes hero-ingredient clay. It comes in two sections for easy application, and quickly but effectively gets to work.
Besides the mess, clay masks can often be overly-drying and aggressive. That is far from the case with Patchology’s SmartMud. While it is cooling and deeply cleansing, there is no sense of tightness or redness post-application. In fact, it’s gentle enough that I tend to leave it on for 20 minutes as opposed to the recommended 10. What can I say–my pores need it!
If you want to take care of clogged pores without clogging your sink with mask remnants, this mask is for you.
