Caudalie Instant Detox Mask

I love French pharmacy brands - Bioderma, Nuxe and La Roche Posay are all staples in my skin care routine. They’re gentle, effective and so reasonably priced compared to high end skin care. Until now Caudalie was one brand that I just didn’t have a lot of experience with. I originally associated the brand with the Beauty Elixir which received cult status in the blogging world a couple of years ago but with my skin being on the oily side it didn’t really appeal to me (this was before Caroline Hirons taught me the importance of double toning of course). Recently Caudalie brought out a range of 4 face masks designed to target all of your skin concerns. There’s the Gycolic Peel Mask for radiance; Purifying Mask for controlling oil; Moisturing Mask for skin in need of hydration and the Instant Detox for congested skin. A few weeks ago I won the Caudalie Instant Detox Mask on an Escentual Twitter competition (I never win anything, I was so excited!), and I have to say, so far I’m obsessed. 

Over the last few months my skin has went from being oily to more combination so I’ve been finding that my usual cleansing mask of choice, Origins Clear Improvement, has been a bit too much for my skin leaving it feeling quite tight, so far Instant Detox is the perfect solution for confused skin. According Escentual, it has a “cocktail of 8 essential oils which has a detoxifying effect on the skin whilst promoting regenerating, smoothing and purifying action”. It also has papaya enzymes to which lightly exfoliate the skin. I’ve found it deeply cleanses my skin without drying it out and it leaves my skin super soft. And no break outs! So massive thumbs up from me. I’m dying to get my hands on the other 3, so I’ll keep you updated! 

Have you tried any of the Caudalie masks? What’s your favourite face mask just now?
