[REVIEW] Shiseido Purifying Mask

By Kristine Lam - May 25, 2012

I've been Shiseido fan for the longest time and I've been trying out their purifying mask for a few weeks now :D


A creamy, rinse-off facial mask formulated with Marine Mineral Clay to absorb dulling surface sebum and impurities. It will leave skin visibly refined and refreshed. Reveals radiant new skin for a more youthful look.
  • Contains a unique combination of highly-porous Marine Mineral Clay, kaolin, and powder ingredients to absorb surface sebum and impurities and minimize the appearance of pores.
Although it's described as a "creamy" facial mask, it's more of a mud mask in texture.

How to use:

- Cleanse your face
- Towel dry and apply to needed areas (I normally only use this on my T-zone/any problematic areas)
- Leave on for 5-10 minutes and rinse off thoroughly
- Continue with skin care routine

I have sensitive dry-combination skin so usually mud masks are too harsh for my skin. However, this mud mask is gentle yet does it's job pretty well. I use the amount shown in the photo above and it covers my forehead/t-zone/chin area. I concentrate on my nose and t-zone the most while the other parts are just to use up the left overs :p

The instructions tell you to only leave it on for 5-10 minutes but I find its more effective if you leave it on for 20-30 minutes. No worries, it's quite gentle and won't dry your skin up!

This mud mask is one of the few that doesn't leave my skin feeling tight. It leaves your skin feeling really fresh and clean :D Perfect after a long week of school or work. Serums and moisturizers also absorb significantly better after using this. I usually use this once a week to keep my skin clear and blemish-free.

And as a prize for reading to the end of this post (or scrolling? :p)

Alpaca for you!
