Face masking is a pretty therapeutic step in skin care. I personally love to try out different face masks or packs for my oily, acne prone skin. Today we will be checking out the Oriflame Purifying 2 in 1 Mask and Scrub Review.
I had been using the mask since some 4 weeks and have used it previously too. Only that the past week my skincare routine has been not in place. I still thought of reviewing the mask as summers are on. It might be useful for you all to decide whether you need this mask or not. I bought the mask from Utkarshini, one of my fellow bloggers, a couple of months back.
Designed as a convenient multi-purpose mask and scrub, it’s infused with all the goodness of organic Tea Tree essential oil and super ingredient Lime, making it the go-to solution for a deep and meaningful cleanse. But it won’t stop there. It also works to exfoliate your skin, helps to minimise the appearance of pores and even contains salicylic acid to target blemish-prone skin.

Packaging, Texture and Fragrance
The packaging of the mask is very travel friendly tube. It is a pale green, plastic tube with a screw top. The top isn’t flip cap and is fully removable. The consistency of the mask cum scrub is runny and texture is soft, gooey clay sort mask. The product has a faint hue of green which will feel white once you apply the mask. The mask has a fresh, zesty fragrance of lime which is not overwhelming and not lingering. The cap needs special care, since once I actually thought I lost it and was thinking on how to preserve the product. Thankfully I found the cap.
My experience with the Oriflame Purifying 2 in 1 Mask and Scrub
As mentioned earlier the mask has a runny consistency which makes it little difficult to apply. I just squeeze out some amount on my palms and apply the mask. The gooey consistency is dripping which needs attention so that you don’t stain your clothes. The consistency makes it little difficult to apply a uniform layer on the face. On some places it is thick and on some parts it is very thin.
The mask works nicely on the skin to reduce small zits and excess sebum. I like how the skin feels bright and clear with each use. The mask doesn’t work that well on cystic acne and I don’t even expect it to. It contains Salicylic Acid and tea tree essential oil which are beneficial in curbing acne. I could see my small zits drying up and reducing in just three uses. The scrubbing effect of the mask isn’t too good. The scrub particles aren’t too dense, so don’t worry much of exfoliating properties.
The consistency of the mask is actually beneficial in terms of giving the skin a hydrating effect. I could see how the mask in spite of having a clay in it, makes the skin so soft to touch. I could feel the hydrating effect next day morning after using the mask in my evening routine. After applying the mask it gives a nice cooling sensation to the skin, which I find very soothing in the summers.
The fragrance of the mask is very refreshing and not at all overwhelming. The mask also gets washed off easily. Overall speaking I thoroughly love and enjoy using the Oriflame Purifying 2 in 1 Mask and Scrub in my regular routine. It helps with acne and keeping the skin clear of any excess sebum or dirt. If you have oily acne prone skin you should consider giving this mask a try.

If you are looking out for a clay based mask which also helps with acne then Oriflame Purifying Mask is a good choice. Even if you do not suffer from acne, this mask can be described as best clay mask in India. It is absolutely non drying mask which makes it suitable for all skin types. It helps in reducing the zits and makes the skin clear with consistent use. The hydrating effect of the mask is awesome and I wish to repurchase this mask. Finally a clay based mask which can be used by all skin types and in all seasons!
