When I first spotted this mask on the market I had absolutely zero interest in it. I’m pretty well catered for already in the mask department. The moment I fell hook, line and sinker for it was when I met my friend A one day and her skin looked awesome. Like airbrushed awesome. The girl has ridiculously good skin anyway, but this was a whole new level of flawless. It took about two seconds for me to enquire about her skincare and when she replied saying it was the new Plum Green Tea Clear Face Mask, my interest switched from zero to off the barometer. After a bit of a wild goose-chase (I’ll elaborate later), I finally got my hands on this last week and after seven days of testing I’m ready to give my verdict.
I’ll cut to the chase. It’s good. As most people are aware, green tea and clay, along with glycolic acid are great cleansers for the skin. Green Tea also provides antioxidant benefits.
The instructions are to apply a thin layer over all the areas of the face, leave for 30 minutes and remove with plain water. I love applying face masks, I can’t wear my glasses while they are on so it means I leave my phone etc. alone and relax for the duration. This mask felt nice on my skin, there was no drying but there was slight tingling. The mask was also easy to remove and left no residue or tackiness, my skin felt lovely and soft afterwards and I did notice after a couple of uses that my skin did look more radiant than usual.
I was pleased with this mask, especially as I usually go for clarifying or exfoliating rather than soothing. The glow-getter face mask with Chamomile & White Tea, and the renaissance mask that Plum have on their website sound great too. Given how much I liked this mask I will be checking out more of their products. In fact, while doing research for this review I got quite happily lost on their website; they have a wide range of masks, scrubs and other products which are also reasonably priced.
If you’re tempted Nykaa has it – no wild goose chase required.
