OLEHENRIKSEN Firm Action Mask
Friday, November 23, 2012
As soon as I opened this, it smelt like my bentonite clay mask which is the third listed ingredient and it's the smell I can identify straight away - it's not a bad thing if your use to the scent as I am. This contains ingredients which I like to use by themselves, for me it's a multi ingredient mask of all my favourites. Aloe Leaf Juice, Bentonite and Witch Hazel.
This clay mask dries, quickly and it's very tight. Has to be one of the tightest masks. I've ever used to date. I dare try move a muscle in case it all cracks and falls off. They recommend you use this for 20 - 30 minutes and 2 - 3 times a week. Very frequent mask if you think about most times your recommended a mask a week
You can see within the circles where the mask has cracked and rippled from the firming action.

What I love about this mask it does make my face feel smooth, clean and bright. Dries out spots that are on the surface but not so much for the ones under the skin which did make me a little disappointed as I hope with the inflammation ingredient it would help those too. I do only leave it on for 15 minutes and with these types of masks it's good to moisturise the lips before because once your face is temporarily paralysed lol, your lips begin to get dry. I'm going to try the recommended 20 - 30 minutes and see if that helps more with any spots. Rinsing this off with warm water, it glides off. Previous clay masks I have used, I feel I have to really work at it to remove it. This is what also makes this mask a dream to use.
