Hello Beautiful

My name is Tammy and I've been blogging for over 8 years now. I started blogging because I wanted to share my beauty hauls and lifestyle experiences. I'm also a pro-consumer, which is probably the fire in my life.

This blog is now happily written by the cutest couple you've ever seen. Gareth's Irish while I'm Malaysian. We met in the most unexpected way possible and since then have been in a loving relationship. He loves to eat, drink and try new exciting things (even extreme sports) while I love the quieter things in life, like spas, massages, shopping and beauty! But we have something in common, we both love travelling.

Natio Face and Plant Face Mask Purifier

3.06.2011

Natio Clay & Plant Face Mask Purifier

Clay masks are great for oily or acne skin but I have dry skin so clay masks are something I don't want to play around with. Why? because clay masks cleans dirt, absorbs oil and impurities from our skin pores (one of the many reasons why clay masks rocks). Which means for someone with dry skin it can become drying and tight for us after so moisturizing afters is a must!. Recently Sa Sa Malaysia invited me to review the Natio Clay & Plant Face Mask Purifier and I said why not, it's been a while since I tried other brands and Natio, which is from Australia sounds interesting to try! Below is the description of the product:

how to use it
After cleansing and toning, apply a thin layer to face and neck, avoiding eye area. Relax for 10 to 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.

country of origin
Australia

suitable for
all skin type / oily and acne skin

EzineArticles says Clay Mask has many benefits
(especially for acne/oily skin)
Before I put on the clay mask, I cleanse my face first using the Natio gentle face foaming facial cleanser. This helps to remove as much dirt as possible from your face so that the mask would penetrate deep into the skin to do it's job. It says "After thoroughly cleansing face and neck, apply a thin layer of mask, avoiding eye contour area. Relax for 10 to 15 minutes. Remove with luke warm water. Follow with your favourite Natio toner and moisturizer". Sa Sa Malaysia gave me 4 tubes of 20ml Natio Clay & Plant Face Mask Purifier. Surprisingly the tubes are travel size but could be used up to 3 times or more  per tube. I squeeze a big fat 50cents size portion on my palm & started applying in an upwards motion on my face & neck. The texture is creamy but not heavy. It's liked melted chocolate!

Tip: on a hot day like this, I cooled my Natio Clay & Plant Face Mask Purifier in the fridge for a while (say few minutes just to have it cold). It gives a really nice relaxing & cooling feeling when apply. I felt like in heaven.


  leave the clay mask on for 10-15mins & relax

This isn't the usual thick, creamy & heavy clay mask that I usually use. It was easy to use, smooths on quite nicely onto my skin because of the light creamy smooth texture. Of course I had fun just splattering it on my face ending up like a messy kitty.  It doesn't smell strong either! there's a nice sea marine mud like scent that makes me feel like I'm in a luxury spa pampering myself.

I was just wondering how long it would take to bring in the effect as I sat quietly playing around with the tubes for the first few minutes. After 10 minutes, I lightly touch my face to check. There's a firm lifting feel once it dried up. The scent wasn't strong anymore and I knew it was almost time to wash my face again.

results after washing - smooth, clear, dull-buster

I soak my face towel in lukewarm water and put it against my face. It helps to clean clay mask off faster and I didn't want to waste running water. Again easy to remove once lukewarm water comes in contact with the clay mask. It wasn't as messy compare to other brands I have used. I remember I had to wash my face over and over to clean the messy leftovers.

use your toner & moisturiser after using clay mask

Results: Face appeared much smoother and cleaner after use. Dead skin cells exfoliated during the washing process so my face looked fairer. My face was dull in the morning when I woke up but now it's gleaming with joy! Pores appeared less visible. Only problem was my face felt dry and tight due to the clay mask so I had to quickly put on my Natio skin toner & face moisturiser with SPF 15 to balance my skin pH levels since clay masks are acidic. As a person with sensitive skin, I did not feel any tingling or burning sensation when using this clay mask. Though my cheeks looks redden after washing probably due to deep cleansing.

you can get Natio products from Sa Sa Malaysia
