Skin Care Diaries: A Face Mask You Need

Skin Care Diaries: A Face Mask You Need

Since staying in more, my overall skin care has definitely improved. I haven’t felt the need to put on makeup everyday. My evenings are “in” rather than “out” which means I don’t *need* to wing my eyeliner. I have more time for my morning routine without a commute; I actually have time to wait for my moisturizer to sink in. Before, I would definitely be running out the door to get through the Starbucks line before class (a girl needs her americano, okay?).

With the slower pace, I’ve had more time to experiment with skin care too. Let’s be honest, it’s a pretty low-risk time for beauty. If a face mask makes your face a little red or impurities come to the surface, who’s going to see it? Just don’t try something new before your next Zoom call or Bumble digital date.

My latest trial was the Innisfree Volcanic Clay Mask. I have tried some of their products before and really liked them. I was excited when Her Campus sent me some more Innisfree product to test.

For some background on the brand, they have various k-beauty product lines. They focus on sustainability sourced and natural ingredients.

For some background on the product, it is stated to work with normal, combination, and oily skin types. My skin is on the sensitive side, and Innisfree products have been accommodating to that in the past.

When I opened the mask, I found the clay texture to be soft and creamy with some finely-ground bits. The little bits are walnut shell powder and volcanic clusters (hence the name). The clay mask had a fresh smell, but it was not overpowering. It went on very smoothly and felt light on my face.

As with many clay masks, it tightened a touch when it dried. When it was time to take it off, I just took a wash cloth and water. It didn’t take excessive rubbing to remove the mask.

After, my skin felt very smooth, and I didn’t have any redness to deal with. It really does cleanse and *gently* exfoliate. The mask can also help minimize the look of pores, even skin tone, and cleanse pollution particles. I was happy with my results after just one use, so I am excited to see what happens as I work it into my routine.

I tend to do a face mask once a week. Of course, it helps my skin, but also it feels good to schedule out some self-care. If you are looking for a product to treat yourself with, I definitely recommend Innisfree’s Volcanic Clay Mask.

You can check out the product here. If you try it out, let me know how you like it! I have found it pairs well with coffee and Cosmo, but feel free to enjoy it however you like.
