This is a clay based mask that sucks everything out of my skin – dirt and moist. I do love a good clean, so I always tolerate dehydration for seriously cleanliness. This mask CLEANS! (love)

 It can double up as a scrub, because there’s rough grains in the clay. I’d like to emphasise the word, ROUGH. The clay dries / set on the face pretty quickly – like 10min or tops was 15min if it was a humid day. Virtually impossible to wash off even with warm water, I always have to use a cloth/sponge/rubber finger to clean it off. It does tinkle on my skin. I think this one is probably not safe for sensitivie skin people.Kiehls-Rare-Earth-Pore-Cleansing-Mask-review-9563.JPG
I love this one because it cleans and my face feels clean afterwards with dehydration alert.

Salut, I am Joyce. 30 something living in Paris. Appreciate little things and share giggles. Prudent, no nonsense reviews. #ExploreLaughRepeat


  1. I’ve not tried this but I’m not sure I’d like the ROUGH grains! And I detest masks that are difficult to wash off. The tingling is also a concern. All in all, I’m going to stay away from this… 😛

  2. cool, you’re doing beauty product reviews! This product sounds cool. How’s France??!

    • Hey, Bee!!! Admittedly, I got a bit tired of writing about travel all the time. Thought I throw in something new?

      Well, I’m not settled yet LOL Now looking to enroll university at my advance age. How about you? Still jetting all over the show?

      **I like the theme that you’re using. Looks really nice 😀

      • Thanks Joyce! I totally understand, I also combine my blog with some lifestyle and fashion trend talk. Good to have variety. Oh cool studying in France is awesome. I miss it! What course are you looking into?

        • Master in fashion luxury management or Bachelor in French LOL O ja, I remember you told me that you studied over here at some stage.

          • Cool same as me. I also did a course in master in fashion management! Hmmm….maybe i should write a post on that. Just to share with others!
