On first impressions, I liked the packaging which is fairly minimalist & gives the impression of purity. Despite the "green" credentials of the brand, the packaging isn't worthy. I liked that key ingredients and their benefits are highlighted on the outer box. Furthermore, the skin type which the mask is aimed at (oily & congested) is clearly communicated. The tube inside is functional for use and I found the directions clear & easy to follow. The mask should be left on skin for 10 minutes so there's relatively little time commitment required.
As Kaolin (clay) is the first ingredient listed, I was unsurprised to note the grey-green colour of the mask. It's a smooth mask which was easy to apply to skin and despite the description stating that it contains exfoliants, I couldn't detect any exfoliating granules on application, meaning that it felt gentle & would be a good choice for those with active breakouts. I felt as though I needed to apply quite a lot to cover my entire face.
The botanical scent won't be to everyone's liking but I personally rather enjoyed it & felt that it was reflective of the high quality ingredients in Elemental Herbology Facial Detox Purifying Facial Mask.
The mask felt soothing & slightly cooling on my skin following application. After approximately 5-7 minutes, the mask had set on my skin and it felt tight but not drying or uncomfortable.
Following use, my skin was left feeling soft & smooth, with tone looking more even and the appearance of blemishes diminished.
I feel that Elemental Herbology Facial Detox Purifying Facial Mask contains high quality ingredients and although fairly expensive, I feel that the pricetag of £28 for 75ml is justified.
