Reviews for Timeless Skin Mineral Clay Firming Mask by St. Ives

I was lucky enough to receive this as part of a prize from BH last year. I love clay masks for their deep cleansing properties and I use this one whenever my skin starts to feel slightly grotty. The minute it hits my skin I can feel it working away and its minty smell is calming. It has just the right consistency (not too thick, not too thin) so it dries relatively quickly, but I let it sit for a good 15 mins anyway. Once I wash the mask off my skin feels instantly refreshed and looks a lot clearer and brighter! Without a doubt the nicest mask I've tried in years and will likely pick up another one of these once my current tube runs out.

I totally felt it tightening my skin as it dried. Also reduced oil and help to close pores. I didn't get any redness or dryness at all. Bargain price and lasted me while too, very happy overall.

great for removing blackheads!
i always had a problem with blackheads, especially on my nose. decided to try out this clay mask and it got rid of my blackheads really easily! i usually use it every night on my problem areas (if i am breaking out, i'll just put this over it) after i wash my face and leave it on for about 15-30 minutes before washing off. it tends to dry out my skin a little but nothing a moisturiser can't fix. will definitely recommend this to friends!

A Deep Clean, Does What is says
This is a great mask that does what it says, it deeps cleans and makes your skin feel fresh. Made with kaolin clay.
Even though my skin is dry it still works good for me as long as i make sure to moisturise afterwards. Apply a good amount over your cheeks, forehead, chin, upper lip area and nose leaving it to dry for 15 minutes will get better results than 10 minutes (but it depends on your skin too). Its helped when i have had a big stubborn blackhead (after using it a few times). This is a weekly mask, don't over use it cause it could dry out your skin. It makes my skin feel so soft once i've put some moisturiser on, and your skin feels clean. Doesn't irritate my very sensitive skin.

Clean and fresh
I have used this product a few times now and found that it was refreshing and it didn't make my skin dry, tight or red. It was calming whilst appearing to clean. However I didn't notice the firming effect at all.

Results you can see and feel
I used St Ives blemish fighting apricot scrub before applying this mask. Great for oily skin as you can see the oil being sucked out of your pores (which gives you a good idea of your problem areas). I also loved the tightening feel of the mask! My skin felt so soft and renewed after using the mask. For a price of only $10 - this product truly is a bargain! However, one thing that bothered me just a bit was that the tube that i purchased wasn't very full and I had to squeeze the tube quite a bit before I could get any of the mask out, which was rather disappointing for my first time using it. All in all - this clay mask does the trick!

Best cheap face mask around
I've used plenty of face masks before as I have a problem with acne. But this mask seems to be helping a lot with the oil problem, and did make my skin soft without drying out the skin too much.

Makes you feel like you're in a Spa
I absolutely love this mask and it has become one of my must have products. The predominant ingredient in this mask is Kaolin Clay, so its excellent for sucking out unwanted sebum and it's perfect for those with oily skin types. The mask itself is a light green (like one of those stereotypical green mud masks!) and has a refreshing minty fragrance. I apply this with my fingers but feel free to use a mask brush. Depending on how thick you apply it, it takes 5-10min for it to dry and then I like to wash it off in the shower.It leaves your skin glowing and refreshed but these effects are short-lived. For $10 you get a lot of product. I've used this 1-2 times a week for quite a while now and I still have a lot left. If your new to masks and have oily skin I would give this a shot because its cheap and effective.
