Project Pan Week 7: Natio Clay and Plant Face Mask Purifier

project-pan-week-7

Happy Monday and welcome to week seven of Project Pan! Project Pan follows Stash Matters, A Brash Attitude, Curly Spring Blossom and I as we pick 12 products to try and hit pan on/empty over 12 weeks (11 in my case).

In the spotlight this week is a product by Australian brand Natio; their Clay and Plant Face Mask Purifier.

About

I first saw this face mask in a magazine and purchased it roughly a year ago. I actually only paid 50 cents for this as I had a gift card which paid for the rest. Ever since I purchased this face mask I have used it once a week for the past 52-ish weeks. You don’t need to use a lot of product and this tube seems to last forever. I like that this doesn’t have a scent and you can feel it working when you apply it. This is currently the only face mask I use and the only one I have ever used.

From the website:

Benefits:

Helps unclog and tighten pores. Does wonders for tired skin, improving firmness and texture. A wonderful at-home treatment for all skin types.

Plant Extracts:

Sesame to nourish and restore lustre. Lemon to cleanse and purify. Palma Rosa to soften and nourish.

How To:

After cleansing and toning, apply a thin layer to face and neck, avoiding eye area. Relax for five to ten minutes, allowing clay to dry. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.

pros

  • A little goes a long way
  • Unscented
  • Simple, squeeze tube packaging
  • Makes the face feel clean and fresh

Cons

  • Runny texture, I have to be careful not to squeeze too much out
  • May leak easily – I store this lying down instead of upright
  • Doesn’t prevent breakouts

Chanelle’s rating: 7/10 – This face mask is definitely worth the price because of how long it has lasted. I don’t know whether it would be beneficial to use this mask more than once a week. Maybe that’s something to try for the last few weeks of Project Pan? I am undecided whether I will purchase again once I’ve finished this tube. Part of me would like to try something else and perhaps more specific to my skin and it’s needs.
