Face Masking with Generation Clay

I have had a love/hate relationship with clay masks for years, there are some brands whose products literally just irritate my skin and make it sore to the touch and then there are other brands whose products I just absolutely love and so does my skin.

I love a good masking session and over the past few months, I have been getting to know a brand called Generation Clay. Hailing all the way from the other side of the world in Australia, Generation Clay described themselves as follows:
Australia: home to a mecca of untapped natural resources that help ingredients-conscious beauty consumers achieve a lit-from-within glow – sans makeup or Snapchat filters. Harnessing all-natural wonders of the skincare world – the outback's millennial pink kaolin clay, healing purple bentonite clay and impurity-purging white activated charcoal – along with supercharged straight-from-the-earth superheroes (including old man weed, desert lime and Kakadu plum) our trio of Generation ClayTM masks make the case for going Aussie, and au naturel, stronger than ever before.
With three clay masks in within their arsenal, it is hard to pick a favourite because each one does something different but here they are.

Generation Clay Ultra Violet Brightening Purple Clay Mask 

Packed with locally sourced superfruit Davidson Plum, the Generation Clay Ultra Violet Brightening Purple Clay Mask works to rejuvenate dull and tired skin while lightening dark circles and pigmentation.
Ingredients within this mask include Desert Lime, a thorny Australian citrus fruit that boosts hydration, assists with the absorption of antioxidants and increases collagen production. Then there are also two key ingredients:

  • Bentonite Clay deep cleans 
  • Aloe Vera soothes and reduces redness

What I love about each one of these masks, is as well as having very study packaging, which essentially means I've dropped the tubs many times over and have still managed to dent them, break them, crack or smash them, they also come with an accompanying brush which I personally find quite handy, though I do have a reusable spatula which I use to apply my masks anyway. With regular use, skin is left radiant, restored, and refined after using this mask.

Generation Clay Urban Defense Purifying Pink Australian Clay Mask
This mask is described as being 'An essential for city-dwelling skincare enthusiasts' which is most definitely me! Living in London, I am all too aware at just how polluted the air is and just how vile my skin looks after a day of being out and about.  

Face Masking with Generation Clay
This Urban Defense Purifying Pink Australian Clay Mask works to protect the skin against free radical damage while at the same time drawing out impurities, toxins, and pollutants. It has ingredients which include Kakadu Plum which is an Australian superfruit packed with vitamin C and so it helps stimulate collagen production, reduce hyperpigmentation, and protect against environmental aggressors and again the two key ingredients:
  • Bentonite Clay deep cleans 
  • Aloe Vera soothes and reduces redness
This mask is an absolute delight to use and for me, it is the one I use when I want something a little more soothing on my skin, which this one most definitely is and it smells divine too. 

Generation Clay Detoxifying Charcoal Clay Mask
This mask for me is the best of the three. It is formulated Detoxifying Charcoal Clay and within this Mask it works like a magnet to draw out dirt, toxins, and impurities. Perfect for those times when you just feel a double cleanse is not enough to give your skin that clean feeling.  
Face Masking with Generation Clay
As well as Charcoal, this mask includes Witch Hazel helps reduce acne and minimize the appearance of pores, while Old Man Weed fights acne-causing bacteria to prevent breakouts and blackheads.   If you have ever tried a facemask which uses Charcoal, then you will know that they are incredible for literally removing all the 'guff' that really gets under the skin.  The first time I used this mask, I was expecting to have mass breakouts and spots everywhere and the end result was one spot on my chin which had been bubbling under the surface for a few days and it arrived and went within a few days.

With all of these masks, you are advised to apply an even layer to clean dry skin and then wait for the mask to tighten, it takes roughly 10-12 minutes for this happen and then using warm water, massage the mask in circular motions to remove before patting the skin dry.

These masks cost £36 each and you can find them on the Revolve website.
