Hello my second ever VoxBox.
I’ve been meaning to branch out with masks, as I’ve been using (and reusing) my Herbivore Blue Tansy & Innisfree Volcanic Clay combo to death. This swooped in just in time.
This was the Olay VoxBox, a winner, if I say so myself. Love both products.
It’s saying something that I can get excited about cleansers and masks, which tend to lean boring in my spectrum of daily beauty products. But hey, what works works.
Nice and simple. Easy to use. And best of all – travel friendly.
Most clay masks I’ve used came in either huge tubs or heavy, metallic containers, and while I do love excess & sturdiness, it’s hard to find the perfect clay mask for traveling. I usually have to make do with a foil sample or a hastily-packed-sample-in-a-contact-case… that sometimes dried out mid-travel.
This feels like a good mask for traveling. It’s not messy like some stick-form products can get, and it’s a good decent size.
How to use 🙂 As simple as it gets.
I personally like to get the tub running while I apply this. The warm steam opens up my pores.
So here’s the embarrassing part.
I initially didn’t realize this was a cap. Was just fascinated by how smooth the product was and wondered if this was water-activated as it just didn’t seem to be getting onto my skin…
Well. It’s a cap. Do not be foolish like I was. Thank god no one was around to see it.
Here’s the product sans cap. Still lovely and smooth….but actually goes on skin as opposed to its plastic counterpart.
There’s a nice fruity scent to the mask that’s not overpowering.
On application, the mask turns your face into one of an Oompa Loompa. It’s not chalky, goes on smooth, and does its job without completely depleting your skin of moisture.
Best of all, it left my skin glowing after rinsing. Some clay masks briefly irritate my cheeks and nose area, but this didn’t flare up my rosacea. And my skin wasn’t dried out the next morning, so a win overall!
