Awhile ago when I was on my mask kick, I reviewed the Nude Skincare Advanced Renewal Overnight Repair Mask, and it quickly became one of my favorite overnight masks. When the Nude Skincare Purify Deep Cleansing Mask was released, I knew that I just had to give this mask a try too. As a “purifying clay mousse mask that removes impurities to reveal glowing skin,” this is a lot like the Glam Glow Powermud Dualcleanse Treatment.
It seems that many brands are coming out “quick fix” masks — meaning, they promise to deliver miraculous results in 10 mins or less. While I always tend to leave my masks on longer than the suggested time, it’s nice to know that you can rely on “quick fix masks” to help when your skin needs it most. The Nude Skincare Purify Deep Cleansing Mask is a “powerful purifying clay mousse with buriti seed [that] absorbs excess oil and gently exfoliates to help refine pores.” It contains “French clay [that] removes impurities while omega fatty acids and sea fennel deliver the perfect balance of nutrients.” This mask is designed for all skin types, and it promises to reveal glowing skin in as little as 10 minutes.
The concept of this mask is much like the Glam Glow Powermud Dualcleanse Treatment: basically, after you’ve removed your makeup in the evening, you apply this mask to dry skin. Leave on for 10-15 mins. Then, when it’s dried, you wet your face and massage the dried mask. This loosens the ‘particles’ of the mask, which will exfoliate and rejuvenate your skin. Rinse with warm water, dry your face, and then move onto your nighttime skin care routine.
I like this mask a lot, but it’s definitely not a mask you use every night. It’s a good maintaining routine for your skin; so, once or twice a week, or whenever your skin is feeling/looking congested, this mask would be a great way to really kick start your skin. The added benefit of exfoliation will help your skin care products sink in better, since your skin will be able to drink it up after you’ve sloughed off the dead skin cells. The only down side is that you have to use big scoops (with your finger) to really apply the product evenly onto all areas of your face — thus, I see it dwindling away in a matter of weeks (if used regularly). For me, since my cheeks are rather sensitive, I like to concentrate this mask on my t-zone (chin, nose, forehead) since those are the areas that are most oily/congested.
