Mask Monday: Elemis Superfood Berry Boost Mask
Even though the Elemis Superfood Berry Boost Mask is probably the least suited product to my skin in the new Superfood extension line, it’s the one I think I’m generally most excited about for everyone else, as it’s such a wonderfully designed and formulated product for tricky skin – gone are the days when it’s all about stripping the skin until it’s bare, and instead we have lovely, kind, caring skincare that feels and smells gorgeous and leaves skin feeling balanced, refreshed and lightly cleansed.
The Elemis Superfood Berry Boost Mask is Vegan and smoothie-inspired mask that relies mostly on SuperBerry Complex and Brazilian Purple Clay to do all the good work. It is aimed at oily/problem skin, but it’s so lovely and gentle that anyone who fancies a clay mask treatment could use this, and it’s particularly great for those of us who struggle with the more traditional clay masks that tighten and leave skin feeling like it’s going to crack. Obviously this smells *amazing* and it really does feel like you’re applying something you’ve just whipped up in the kitchen. You use it by applying a relatively thick layer (thick enough so it’s opaque on the skin) and leaving it on for around 10 minutes. As you can see from my picture, there are lumpy bits, which I presumed to be the joy of a naturally created product, but I’ve had a look at other swatches and they seem to be pretty clean, so I’m wondering if it’s just my bottle! It made absolutely no difference either way, other than adding to the natural/organic feel of the mask. Skin was noticeably clearer, smoother and more balanced after use, and of all the clay masks I have in my collection, this is definitely one I’ll be reaching for regularly. It’s £30 here – link.
