“Acne-prone skin needs multi-dimensional care – to cleanse, care, control acne, prevent recurrence, and to do all of this gently – phew! No mean mask, this.
Get instantly brighter, healthier-looking skin. A soft, creamy formula that applies nicely and is also easy to wash off, without drying your face. Gentle exfoliation of glycolic acid removes dead cells and impurities, while antioxidant benefit of organic green tea extracts helps control acne (pimples) over the long run. A must-have product for oily and combination skin types.”
Why is it Good?
- Natural clays to absorb oil
- Glycolic acid for gentle exfoliation of dead cells – get instant brightness
- Green tea extracts to help control acne
- Gentle, non-drying, creamy formula works well for oily and combination skin types.
First off, lets just admire the effort Plum has put on the packaging. It makes the product look and feel so special and expensive (shallow much!). The glass jar, to some may be excessive, but I really like it. It is pretty heavy and sturdy thick glass jar/tub.
Now, on to the mask, it goes by the name of “green tea” but the hero ingredient actually is “bentonite clay”an oil absorbing ingredient that is extracted from the breakdown of volcanic ash. The mask also contains another awesome ingredient, namely, Glycolic Acid. The glycol acid works as a peel and provides low-high level of exfoliation depending on the concentration of it used. As I see it is named pretty low on the ingredient list, it probably is there to provide a mild amount of exfoliation.
I use this mask about 2-3 times a week and I have been loving the results. It leaves my skin so soft and healthily matte. It does not dry my skin out and I do sense slight exfoliation that it does each time. The best part about this mask is it does not require any mixing of water/rose water etc, that just is not my jam.
