Dr. Organic Manuka Honey Face Mask (review)

Dr. Organic Manuka Honey Face Mask
A face mask is a useful addition to the daily cleanse-tone-moisturise routine we put ourselves through to enhance our appearance. OK, we all slip up occasionally, and go to bed in full make-up or wake up late and don't have time to cleanse properly, but somehow a face mask feels like it can make up for all our shortfalls!

This Manuka Honey mask is perfect for combination skin. It claims to be oil absorbing, detoxifying and cell rejuvenating, so should tackle clogged pores and dullness which plagues me when I'm stressed or tired. It's made with kaolin, a type of clay, which is mineral rich and when combined with restoring and repairing manuka honey you've got a well-rounded product.
The consistency is quite thick, but not unpleasantly so and spreads well with the warmth of your fingers. It's an unappetising browny-beige colour, but as it dries on your skin it turns white. It smells lovely; the honey ingredient is particularly fragrant which is lovely as you relax for ten minutes as it tightens on your face. Your face will crack if you smile or frown! The tightness isn't uncomfortable, unlike some rival masks.

I always find treatments designed to dry on skin and be scrubbed off are best for deep cleansing and so it proves here. My face looks and feels fresh and rejuvenated after use, but some of that effect is down to removing the product with hot water and a muslin cloth or flannel. This is a far better method of removal than water on it's own as you'll struggle to get the mask off without some light pressure from a cloth. To tighten pores after use (albeit temporarily) I always splash my face with cold water before drying with a soft towel. This helps to boost circulation, too, giving you a revitalised look.

In summary, this is an ideal mask for complimenting your standard skin care regime. Dr. Organic suggest you use it twice a week, but I found it beneficial just once weekly.  It doesn't promise miracle results but instead offers a reliable boost to the look and feel of your skin, helping you maintain a decongested, fresh face that you'll be proud to show off to the world. And with a lot of product for your money, you really can't go wrong.
