Elemental 'my dear' Herbology - skincare diaries

Last night I went into my mask drawer and dragged out Facial Detox Purifying Facial Mask, from Elemental Herbology, my skin was in need of something other than pore refining, hydrating, which tend to be the most popular. 

It has been super oily, even for me and I knew it needed something to deal with in its currently reactive state, but without the clay stripping intensity of some masks I have. 

I apply on dry cleansed skin using a flat headed foundation brush, perfect for the job and for taking it down the neck. 
The smell is amazing, lavender, rosemary, cedarwood, just relax me immediately. 
I leave the mask until it's completely dry and feels tight on the skin, a good tight, reminds me where my face once was. 
I remove using a face cloth, it's a wonderful feeling as my skin is certainly still hydrated but less oily, it looks brighter and feels smooth rather than oily and tacky. 

An amazing choice when skin is hormonally stressed and in need of a hardcore mask but with a delicate touch, it's a brand I feel I need to investigate much further, this sample size has always impressed me. 

The brand explains it like this :

Essential Actives:
- Mineral rich organic Amazonian Clay helps eliminate toxins from the surface of the skin while gently exfoliating and softening. Although it has astringent properties it is not as dehydrating as conventional clays, leaving the skin soft, humidified and glowing.
- Oat Flour and Allantoin (derived from Comfrey) to gently exfoliate, resolve congestion and eliminate toxins from the surface of the skin.
- Kombuchka visibly reduces pigmentation.
- Anti-oxidant rich Fig extract and Malachite helps protect against pollution and environmental extremes.
- Manuka Honey, Aloe and Calendula for their powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial action.
- Essential Oils of Eucalyptus, Cedarwood, Lavender and Rosemary to help balance sebum production.
