DERMALOGICA SEBUM CLEARING MASQUE | REVIEW


A couple months ago I got a mini-facial at Sephora using Dermalogica products. One of the products used on my face was the Sebum Clearing Masque. I was instantly in love with it and couldn't wait to try it again at home. 

WHAT IS IT?
It's a deep cleaning mask formulated with Kaolin and Bentonite clay. Other ingredients include cinnamon bark to eliminate bacteria and oat and licorice to sooth irritation. It absorbs excess oil (hence, "sebum clearing") and refines skin texture. Essentially, it is a powerful antioxidant face mask. 


Clay masks are traditionally formulated for oily and acne-prone skin, and because of this, I personally don't think it would be suitable for sensitive skin. It has a very strong cooling effect which might be too strong for other skin types. 

Since I have normal to oily skin, I absolutely love using this mask. To use it, I'll apply a smooth layer on my freshly cleansed face and leave it on for about ten minutes. Sometimes when I have a really bad breakout, I'll also use it as an overnight spot treatment. Since it can be somewhat drying, I always follow up with a sheet mask to bring that moisture back into my skin. The result is super smooth skin that feels refreshed and awake.



The Sebum Clearing Masque retails for $69 CAD and can be found at Sephora and the online Dermalogica store. I know $70 for 75mL of product may be on the higher end for a face mask, but realistically, you don't need to use very much of this mask, so it'll last you forever. I've never been disappointed with Dermalogica products and this is one that I absolutely love so I don't mind spending a little more money for a product that does wonders to my skin. 

What Dermalogica products would you recommend to me to try? Let me know in the comments down below.
