Fresh Umbrian Clay Purifying Mask Review & Swatch-
Hello pretty ladies!
I have been MIA for a long time now what with a lot of guests dropping in & my baby turning 1, it has been a hell of a busy time for us ^_^ Anyway, I am finally back on track & reviewing one of my very favorite masks from the hot season- the umbrian clay one from Fresh.
What Fresh Says-
A 3-in-1 multi-taster, fresh’s Umbrian Clay Purifying Mask can be used as a weekly face mask, purifying face wash and as a targeted spot treatment. Helping to purge pores of dirt and debris that clogs pores, this mineral-rich formula formulated with centuries-old Umbrian clay (which helps to balance, purify and clarify), sandalwood oil (a natural astringent that calms skin) and chamomile flower and lavender water soothe is a must-have for irritated and blemish-prone skin. A hardworking detox treatment that doesn’t dry or strip skin of essential moisture and oils, say goodbye to congestion and redness and welcome in a calm and balanced complexion you’ll adore.

My take on the Fresh Umbrian Clay Purifying Mask-
The mask comes in a dark grey sturdy round tub with a plastic protector & a screw-on lid. Travel friendly because it comes in 2 different sizes but unhygienic since you have to dip your fingers in.
The mask is silt colored (lol river silt/clay to be precise) with a very light texture which feels cooling & lovely when you slather it on. I applied a thin even layer after cleansing my face & kept it on for 15 minutes before slowly scrubbing & rinsing it off. The mask did not sting/burn at all or aggravate my sensitive skin in any way. Itwas a bit of a task to rinse off though since it does dry up completely.
After washing, my face felt so so baby soft, smooth to the touch & looked cleansed & radiant <3 My skin did not feel dry/stretchy at all in spite of having used a clay mask & instead felt perfectly balanced & soft 🙂 Loved its gentle yet effective scrubbing effect & how clean & fresh my face looked 🙂
This is right now my perfect go-to summer mask for a quick pick-me-up, calming my sensitive skin without drying it out at all & the cooling feel lasts long after 🙂 It is a mask for all skin types as it neither strips the skin nor makes it greasy.
It did nothing to aggravate my sensitive skin in any way.
The mask smells fresh & minty which I quite like.
Pros of the Fresh Umbrian Clay Purifying Mask:
1> Easy to spread, smooth texture of the mask.
2> Skin is immediately calmed, hydrated & soothed- does not irritate sensitive skin.
3> Does not dry out skin at all & instead makes skin perfectly balanced & soft.
4> After rinsing it off, skin looks & feels radiant, clean & smooth <3
5> Convenient, easy to use packaging.
6> Fresh fragrance.
Cons of the Fresh Umbrian Clay Purifying Mask:
As with all Fresh things,very expensive.
Swatch of the Fresh Umbrian Clay Purifying Mask-
My Rating: 4.8/5!
Do I recommend the Fresh Umbrian Clay Purifying Mask?
Fresh Umbrian Clay Purifying Mask is a multi-purpose, non-drying & very effective clay based mask which smoothens & brightens skin without drying it out. I would recommend it for all skin types & especially for the hotter months or that time of the month when you are more spot prone.
