After a full day of watching my two kids and a full night arranging fixtures at a department store, I am tired, to say the least. Everyone is asleep when I get home so that’s my time to unwind and enjoy myself. My ‘me time,’ in other words. Some nights, I go online or read a book. Sometimes, I read our local weekly paper without any interruptions. Sounds nice, doesn’t it? Last night, I decided to break out the Boots Botanics Ionic Clay Mask that I received in my J’Adore Vox Box from Influenster.
I love a good face mask. They really make your skin feel fresh and clean. I am already familiar with Boots since I follow them on Twitter and Facebook. I remember the Boots drug stores when I lived in London during college. They are such a great drug store and I wish we had the exact same thing here. They sold the best sandwiches. Their pharmacist was always friendly and helpful too. Pharmacists can prescribe medicine to you in the UK. So it came in handy when we got sick. So this mask stirs up old memories too, which is pleasant. 🙂
I took my pajamas into the bathroom (my favorite flannel plastic flamingo ones), turned on the hot water and went to work. I am starting to get a cold so the steam helped clear up my sinuses. I applied the mask and let it dry for 10 minutes.
I then jumped into the shower and rinsed it off. We have great water pressure so the stream felt so good on my face. It felt like I was at the spa. It’s the little things in life, people. I wasn’t rushed. No one had a catastrophe. After I was finished, my face felt wonderful. It was so fresh and clean. It looked great too!
You can see the pjs in this photo a little! But anyhoo, Boots Botanics Ionic Clay Mask promises to remove impurities and deeply cleanse your skin. I believe it does just that. It uses the power of plants to make you look radiant. I really like that it’s so natural and doesn’t have any weird fragrances. It willow bark in it, which naturally contains salicylic acid and removes dead skin cells. Willow bark also has anti-inflammatory properties. Sea silt, or natural oceanic clay, is also found in this mask. Clay is so great at removing oil from your skin and contains anti-inflammatory properties too. In other words, your skin won’t age prematurely. I was pleased with the results and it really helped me rejuvenate after a long day. I will be using it once a week from now on to keep my skin clean and young-looking.
