I sit here typing up this post listening to the Christmas Classics playlist on Spotify – a.k.a. the best playlist in existence – with my winter essential detox mask on that I just need to tell you about.

Each season brings a different skin issue for me, and throughout the colder months my main concerns are dullness and dry areas that cause blemishes. So of course a new mask on my winter skincare menu is a must and here’s my new favourite…

For a long while I had it stuck in my head that winter facemasks were all about the hydration gel masks, but how very wrong I was.

Welcome Bobbi Brown’s Instant Detox Mask, my new and very much loved companion.

My newest addition to my winter beauty essentials list is far from anything I typically use during the colder months.

A holy grail of mine used to be the GinZing mask from Origins, and although it would do the trick at hydrating and brightening the results would never last quite long enough.

Don’t get me wrong, the Origins mask is a good excuse to do a mask every few days, and you know me, I love a good pamper session at every excuse. But, it’s nice to have a mask in my life for these colder (may I add freezing) months that will last me a good week or more.

The Instant Detox mask uses a unique blend of Hawaiian Sea Water and Amazonian White Clay to help extract toxins and all the nasty gunk from your skin. Not only does it remove all impurities, it works magic on those irritating and hard to manage large pores.

For some reason my pores like to play me up more during the colder months. Maybe I just notice it more when the summer glow diminishes from my face, but lately they were really starting to get on my nerves. Although now, using this around once a week keeps that problem at bay. So far, so good!

After a few uses of this I saw a huge difference in both my pores as they were visibly reduced and also a brighter, softer and cleansed complexion as my skin felt uber soft like a baby’s bottom.

As this mask is for extracting and purifying, it is super important to ensure you hydrate your skin after. This gem deep cleanses and pretty much gives you that ‘been to the spa’ feeling for your face, so all you need to do is pop on your favourite moisturiser, serum and/or oil and you’re good to go.

It’s sleek tube packaging is easy to take away with you and the perfect solution to know how much you’ve got left. The squeezy tube is like nothing I’ve seen for a mask before and is something I actually really love about the product. There’s nothing worse than getting to the end of a favourite product and not knowing you’re about to run out is there. The squeezy tube means you can get every last bit out to, yay.

My favourite time to use this is in the evenings, usually in the bath (of course, where else?) and I pop on Bobbi Brown’s Intensive Skin Supplement straight after removing the mask to add instant hydration and nourishment. I’ll be speaking about this little gem in an upcoming post soon, don’t you worry. Sit tight, I’m pretty sure many of you will want to know about it if you love a naturally dewy and brighter complexion.

Although this is a clay mask, a type of mask known to usually be for oily skin types, this one is made for all. Lucky to as that means everyone can enjoy a bit of this goodness.
