Malin+Goetz Clarifying Clay Mask

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

Malin+Goetz Clarifying Clay Mask is a wonderful multitasking clay mask that is perfect for combination to oily skin types. While my skin is normal to combination I do not find it in the least bit drying or irritating.

This mask utilizes natural pumice exfoliating particles in concert with bentonite and kaolin clay, therefore while the clay draws out impurities that clog pores, the exfoliating particles remove dead skin cells making it far easier to clear congested pores. I simply apply the mask to freshly cleaned skin and let it dry– I tend to leave it on between 5-10 minutes– then I dampen my hands with warm water and gently massage my skin to activate the exfoliating particles. Once I rinse my skin it is left soft, smooth and luminous. This mask is also remarkably effective when used as a spot treatment on breakouts, and I recently had a small breakout on my chin that this mask healed overnight.
According to Malin+Goetz,

Our 5-minute clay mask helps to clarify oily prone skin. Multi-tasking for all skin types, including sensitive, refined bentonite and kaolin clay deeply purifies and effectively absorbs impurities while natural pumice powder gently exfoliates. A concentrated blend of five botanical extracts and sunflower seed fatty acids hydrate, protect and soothe. Natural fragrance and color.
Directions: Apply to a clean, dry skin 1-2 times per week. Leave on for 5 minutes or until dry (no longer than 10 min). Dampen hands and gently massage to exfoliate and rinse clean.

  1. It sounds like an excellent mask.

  2. It's great that it helped clear up a blemish so quickly. That makes it worth the price right there.

    1. It made me so happy that it did! It's really good for n all-over mask, but it's also a great spot treatment mask.

  3. I love a good clay mask. I use it each time that my skin look congested

  4. This sounds so great! Clay gets a bad wrap too often for being drying, but some formulas really aren't.

    1. Well, many are sooooo drying! I love finding formulas that are more gentle!
