As a person with combination skin, I love using deeply purifying clay masks once a week and more nourishing ones another day of the week. It was quite interesting for me to try the Facial Clay Mask for Normal Skin* from Mirins Copenhagen because it’s purifying but nourishing at the same time, what a great combination! This face mask as well as all the products from Mirins is natural and handcrafted, with botanical ingredients, free from preservatives, synthetic additives and artificial fragrance. The packaging of the products is made of 100% biodegradable recycled materials.
The face mask comes in a glass jar that is not only pretty and heavy but also hygienic, keep reading and you’ll learn why.
The product is actually a dry mixture and contains French Pink Clay, Moroccan Rhassoul Clay, Dead Sea Mud, Grounded Lavender and Rose Petals. The mask is both a cleanser and a gentle exfoliant exactly because of the grounded lavender and rose petals which also give a wonderful scent and feels lovely on the skin.
What I love the most about the experience is that it makes me take a moment and dedicate myself to the ritual of good skincare because you have to add water to the dry mixture and it feels like you’re creating your own face mask. It’s something so simple, yet so wonderful, you know…it’s the little things. Plus, you don’t invite bacteria inside because every time you use a clean spoon to get the amount you need without having to stick your fingers in the jar.
It’s suggested to use 2 teaspoons clay with 2 teaspoons water and apply the mixture with fingers or a brush, covering face, neck and décolletage. I noticed that this amount is a bit too much for me and I didn’t want to waste the lovely product, so I tried with 1 teaspoon and I realised it was enough to cover these areas. Then you massage in a circular motion for 1 minute, this stimulates the circulation and shows the exfoliating properties of the lavender and rose petals, let it dry and rinse with warm water. For me, it takes about 10-15 minutes to dry. It feels a bit tight but nothing like most of the clay masks, it’s not painful or irritating. Then I just wash it off using a small face sponge.
After rinsing off the mask and drying my face, I see radiant skin that is incredibly soft and nourished. I really like how this mask combines the purifying and the nourishing qualities of different clay types and makes my skin look and feel wonderful.
I’m excited to share with you that I’m preparing a post dedicated to this Scandinavian brand because I’ve been using some of their products in the past months and I hope more people will learn about how amazing they are.
