TBN: Skin Heroes Edition- The One Mask to Rule Them All

Now that we are out of quarantine and in the usual full swing of things, speed is more of the essence than ever for me. I am, as always, loving my skincare but it needs to be quick and it needs to be good. Today's revelation was sent to me as a gift-with-purchase and it's a gem of a product- from a brand I don't love, no less. I used to adore Bobbi Brown in the olden days, however, the past decade has been lacklustre products-wise. BOY, did they make up for their slump with this one. It's the Instant Detox mask and it's been a godsent for my routine.

It's a clay mask; the best I've used actually (and I've used a lot). Even better than the legendary Lancaster clay mask? Yes. Better then my holy grail Charlotte Tilbury Goddess mask? Yep. This one is gives me even better skin, ultra-quickly. Apply it on slightly damp skin for 3 minutes, no more, then rinse out. When it dries, my face looks like a freak map of disgusting pores. But when I wash it off, I am left with perfectly clean, smooth, plump, bright and tight skin. I follow with my regular serums and creams, according to time of day and there you have it: the quickest face spa you can buy in a tube. This is an all-around brilliant skin booster for results-driven people with little patience.

I was curious to understand what was so special about it and looked up the ingredients list. The official description is: 'A unique blend of Hawaiian Sea Water and mineral-rich Amazonian White Clay.. Sea Salt and Sea Water'. Yeah, well, sea water has been on my face before but never to this effect. Why don't they just skip the hype and call this Good Skin In A Tube? It's full of anti-inflammatory components, vitamins, antioxidants, excellent cleansers, de-cloggers, exfoliators, healers and conditioners. So much more than sea water: kaolin, bentonite, resveratrol-rich japanese knotweed root extract, glycerin, charcoal powder, two differenent algae, butylene glycol, rosemary, lavender, grapefruit oil. If you are not sensitive to any of these, I bet you'll like this formula a lot. Absolutely recommended, the Good Skin In A Tube mask (take a hint Bobbi Brown) is available to buy here
