Usually I am not a huge fan of Trilogy BUT this one has my backing 100%! The jar although appears small you don't use alot of the product so it does have a bit of value for money. It comes with a spatula to smooth it on to your face more effectively. It avoids waste and spreads it evenly. The mask itself is grey in appearance and fits when I think of clay. It is a smooth formula, edging on silky.
I always cleanse my face first to try and get any dirt or makeup off my face, I spread this mask over my face avoiding eye areas and my mouth. It has a bit of a strong smell although not unpleasant. It is very cold going on so is not something I enjoy doing in the winter. It takes about 20 minutes to dry (not completely) on my skin. I leave it on for half an hour before I wash it off with warm water and a cloth. I rinse the cloth off after each swipe because I have found that it can stain if not rinsed out at time of contact. After removing my skin feels rejuvenated. It is smooth, plump, clearer and far more hydrated.
I have been using it now for 6 months and have repurchased three times. I find using it once a week is sufficient in keeping my skin looking great. My redness has cleared up, my skin tone is more even and I have even taken on not wearing foundation which is actually quite liberating. It is a great way to de-gunk your face and also bonus scare the kids hehe.
