Valentia Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask #skindetoxifyingclaymask #vegan

Valentia Skincare makes wonderful products that I have been using for the past couple of years.  I love this skin detoxifying clay mask.  It has kaolin clay which is known for drawing out impurities, improving skin tone and tightens poor for smoother skin.  It also has other wonderful ingredients that are listed below.

I like that this mask is vegan friendly and cruelty free.
The mask smells great and it goes on smoothly.  I can feel it working as soon as I start to apply it.  It has a subtle cooling feeling.  My skin definitely feels tighter and smoother after I let the mask dry and remove it with a warm wet rag in a circular motion.

The mask dries fairly quick.  I like to leave it on for 15 minutes each time I use it, even if it dries.

I like using the mask at a minimum of once a week.

I also like to use the External Youth Exfoliating Scrub from Valentia.  It has key ingredients of aloe vera, green and white teas and jojoba beads.  It has a light pretty scent and is part of my daily routine.  The white and green teas have anti-inflammatory agents, anti-aging effects and is an anti-irritant.   The aloe vera helps to moisturize my skin, leaving it soft to the touch. The jojoba beads help to remove dead skin and exfoliate my skin.

These products are available on Amazon

About the Clay Mask:

  • CLEANSES & EXFOLIATES: Kaolin Clay works in this mask to effectively draw out impurities caused by the environment, leaving skin clean, clear, and smooth.
  • POWERFUL NATURAL INGREDIENTS: Hibiscus & Cranberry fibers, Spirulina and Astaxanthin have all been chosen exclusively for Valentia Detoxifying Clay Mask because they increase collagen production, anti-aging properties, reduce free radicals and restore skin elastic for a tighter and smoother appearance.
  • YOUNG & HEALTHY GLOW: CoQ10 is a key ingredient that reduces the appearance of wrinkles by stimulating collagen productions to reduce free radicals that can cause premature signs of aging. Smoothes out an uneven skin tone with astaxanthin, which is known to restore skin's natural elasticity so your skin looks and feels healthy.
  • REDUCE SIGNS OF AGING: One of the main ways in which free radicals damage skin and cause premature aging is by attacking the skin and leaving it weak and loose. Valentia Detoxifying Clay Mask reverses that damage so the skin is firm and strong, leaving you looking stronger and healthier.
  • SPA AT HOME: Pamper your skin with an expensive spa treatment right at home. Apply the clay mask and leave on for less than 15-20 minutes, grab your warm water and towel and wash gently off. Get the same deep cleanse and skin exfoliation the spa offers for less money and in the comfort of your home.
