If you love face masks but can never find just the right texture or formula for your skin, Fresh has reintroduced their cult-favorite Umbrian Clay® Purifying Mask. This is an exceptionally good mask for summer; perfect for combination, normal, or oily skins that are often short of options.
One of my bucket list wishes is to go to Italy. My mom’s side of the family all came to the U.S. from Italy and someday I want to go and take it all in. One of the regions that has intrigued me is Umbria; it’s in the central part of the country. And that is where the clay used in the Umbrian Clay Purifying Mask comes from.
Umbrian Clay has a high mineral content and is known for it’s absorption properties, making it a good mask if your skin needs mattifying and clarifying. There are other actives in this mask, including chamomille flower and lavendar water for soothing, as well as sandalwood oil for calming.
While I’ve been a fan of the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments forever, it’s the masks that make Fresh one of the most beloved beauty brands on the market. The Umbrian Clay Purifying Mask is a multitasker, because it does more than just hydrate skin. You can use the Umbrian Clay Purifying Mask as a deep cleanser, as a purifyer or as a spot treatment solution for breakouts, oiliness or blemishes.
I had never tried the Umbrian Clay Purifying Mask, so when Fresh sent one over, I was anxious to test it. I applied the mask with the spatula and left it on for about 10 minutes. When I washed the mask off, my skin was glowing, hydrated and smooth. I’d probably just use this as a mask, but like the option of being able to use it as a deep cleanser, if I felt my skin needed that.
You can find the Fresh Umbrian Clay Purifying Mask ($62) at Sephora, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and at fresh.com. There are other Umbrian Clay products available too, including the Purifying Facial Toner, which smells amazing and has many of the same benefits as the mask.
