Clarins Exfoliating Face Mask: ‘Gentle Peeling Smooth Away Cream’


I am so so impressed by this face mask!! I’ve just rinsed it off after trying it for the first time, and come straight to blog about it as I’m so excited! 

First of all, it’s an exfoliating face mask. It has microbeads in it and states that it will ‘immediately eliminate impurities that cause a dull complexion’. It is suitable for all skin types (as you probably already know mine is oily-combination) including sensitive skin.

It comes out a bit like clay, and is a sort of greeny-grey colour. You rub it into your face, massaging it in circles; it comes out runny but quickly dries.

Before I tried it I was a bit sceptical because you only leave it on for one minute, and I thought ‘how much difference is this going to make in one minute to my skin?’. The answer: A LOT! When rinsing it off I really scrubbed and massaged my face to provide as much exfoliation as possible.

I am completely blow away by how good this face mask is. It’s left my face literally glowing- no skin care product has ever made my skin look so bright! It’s so soft to touch, it feels so smooth and clean- this is down to the inclusion of primrose oil in it which is known for its soothing properties. It has completely unblocked all my pores. I know this because lots- if not all- of my blackheads have disappeared and my spots have all come to the surface.

I am definitely going to be buying this face mask, and cannot recommend it highly enough; it really has made a massive difference to my skin. To apply, leave on, and rinse off, it takes a total of about 3-4minutes. So it is not a hassle and can easily be fitted in to a bed time routine. I would recommend exfoliating or using a mask once a week to keep your skin looking fresh and to unclog all the pores. 

Has anyone else tried this? Or have any other face mask recommendations?

Price: £24.50 for 50ml (This is a sample).


  1. I love Clarins, but always been nervous to use any other facemasks, I usually stick to the packet ones that make your face smell like chocolate, but your post has made me want to branch out and actually try this clarins one :)

    1. Aw thank you! I know, I think Clarins is just so brilliant at Skin care, I really trust their products to do a good job, and I was so impressed by this! It is pricey but I think it's worth it, and it will last ages as you'll only use it once a week. I hope you like it too :) and thanks for commenting hun x x
