PRODUCT REVIEW: ESTEE LAUDER CLEAR DIFFERENCE PURIFYING EXFOLIATION MASK.

Be confident. The difference is clear. This intense treatment mask draws out impurities and removes excess oil and shine with a soft clay formula. Refines and refreshes as it frees skin of flakiness and roughness with gentle exfoliators. Deep clean treatment helps clear and prevent clogged pores to minimize future breakouts.” – Estee Lauder

I have been using this product since it was launched last year, and I repurchased it recently. I don’t use it all the time, perhaps once every couple of weeks.

I find that I get very congested little pores on the tip/underside of my nose. And all the other products that I have tried just doesn’t work as well as this. So some times I use it just there as a spot treatment.

FORMULA

See the significant change in how your skin looks and feels with our Triple Action Clarity Technology. With the proven power of salicylic acid, it helps stop the breakout cycle, free skin of flakiness, control oil and refine the look of pores.” – Estee Lauder

When you open the jar, the texture is like a whipped cream. At first touch its creamy and dense yet it still feels very lightweight. I am a huge Salicyic fan, its just a wonderful wonderful ingredient to de-grease and eat away at all the dirt and grime that sits on our skin and in our pores. The Kaolin clay is a fantastic purifying ingredient and their is micro fine scrub to buff the skin. I find my makeup goes on so much better when I use this exfoliating mask regularly.

APPLICATION / SWATCH

As you can see the pale aqua mask goes on smoothly and has these little spheres of microdermabrasic scrub. After about 5/10 minutes I wet my hands and gently glide over my skin. I then remove the excess with a flannel. and voila my skins nice and smooth. What I like about it is although its a clay mask I don’t feel my skin tight or stretched. The product has a beautiful richness to the texture and it doesn’t dry hard, leaving my skin feeling supple and clean.

THE PRICE

The Clear Difference Purifying Exfoliation Mask retails for approx 38 euro in Malta. I find a little goes a long way and that it takes me quite a long time to use it all up. I think some one who has a more oily skin would prob use it a bit more, and more frequently since some times I use it just as a spot treatment. For me I think its justified.

OVERALL THOUGHTS

I think this is an item that I will just keep repurchasing. I really love how my skin feels clean after, and even though I follow a really good skincare routine and have regular facials it is the only product that works. I have tried quite a few different exfoliators and even use the Dermalogica AgeSmart lactic acid cleanser. This for me is a must have item in my skincare arsenal. I like to follow it with Clinique’s over night mask from the Moisture Surge range.

Hope you enjoyed reading this review, got any must have masks? Share them with me in the comments.
