Two weeks ago, I went to our local Priceline shop to get some cotton buds. The girl who worked in the shop was so nice and sweet.She recommended the Swisse Manuka Honey Detoxifying Facial Mask to me.
It is $18 normally. However, I only paid $10 for it because there was a promotion in the store. For $10, I certainly wouldn’t mind to try it out. Who knows! I might just find the best clay mask ever. 😉
Manuka honey has been a star ingredient for skin care in the past few years. It is full of goodies. It is well-known that honey has antibacterial compounds help to heal and stop bacteria reproducing on the skin. Manuka honey’s anti-inflammatory property is great to treat acne scars. It helps to regenerate, repair cellular damage and nourish the skin. It also has anti-ageing effect. Sounds promising, right? 🙂

I have to admit it’s quite enjoyable to use. It doesn’t give me the super tight feeling when it is dry like many other clay masks do. The mask dries after 10-15 minutes, depends on the thickness of the mask I apply. Very easy to rinse off with warm water. My skin feels refreshing, clean and hydrated.
