Perfectly Clean with Estée Lauder

As you’re reading this I am on my way to lovely London in a first class trip with Eurostar thanks to my blogger friend Lisha. She got invited to meet top chef Raymond Blanc (from the tv show The Restaurant!) and could bring a friend.. And I’m so lucky she asked me to come with her! I’m in for a culinary treat.. combined with shopping heaven! Although i was in London just a week or two ago (for work though), I still have some wants to tick off my ‘to buy in London’ list. And also: fingers crossed for some bargain beauty sale finds! So if you’re wondering why there’s a little London snow globe in the background of these pictures.. There’s your answer ;)

A few weeks ago I got a lovely gift from Estée Lauder congratulating me with my finalist spot for the Knack Weekend Blog Awards (how sweet is that!), and it contained this cleanser/mask from their new Perfectly Clean line. Although actually named the Multi-Action Foam Cleanser/Purifying Mask, it looks like your typical white mud mask when squeezing it out of the tube (not foamy at all) and has a perfumed scent. This is quite a concentrated cleanser and will lather up to become foamy when used as a cleanser. I’ve not used it in that way before since I use a way gentler cleanser than this one - dealing with new found acne is a pain - but I have used it a handful of times as a purifying mask. I leave it on two to three minutes (which is more than enough!) & then take it of with a hot damp washing cloth. My skin feels quite dry and tight after using this, which is why I use this just on the oily areas of my face. These kinds of masks using absorbing clays really help control the sebum production on my t-zone, I have a couple of other types in rotation as well and really recommend it if you’re battling overly active sebum production as well! You should apply this mask only if you’ve got a combination or oily skin type as it’d be too stripping for dry skin types. Use it for a couple of minutes at a time & about once a week, alternating with other types of masks and treatments that’ll tackle other skin issues you’re experiencing.
