When Charlotte Tilbury launches a new product, it gets my full attention especially when it is one of my most favorite skincare products, a mask! The Charlotte Tilbury Goddess Skin Clay Mask is the latest product to launch from the line that promises to visibly lift, smooth, brighten and tighten pores for baby skin. After a harsh New York winter, my skin is screaming out for some love so I was excited to give this a go!
It is based on an ancient Mediterranean recipe that combines Spanish clay and Sweet Almond Oil in its ingredients to heal and nourish. Spanish Clay absorbs oil draws out impurities from the skin leaving it fresh and glowing without any dryness and the Sweet Almond and Rosehip Oil softens and nourishes the skin delaying the signs of aging. It also contains a peptide complex which boosts collagen production and improves skin elasticity.
What I noticed immediately from this mask is the absolutely heavenly smell of Frangipani, which really transports you to a tropical paradise when you apply this, it really is the most beautiful smelling mask I have ever tried. It is a white clay mask which is so smooth and creamy to apply so feels very luxurious and it doesn’t set hard or crack on the skin, making it extremely comfortable to wear. This is unlike any clay mask I have tried before that tend to be grey in color, set hard and crack on the skin and are normally quite medicinal smelling. It really is a pleasure to wear this mask, which I could actually leave on for far longer than the recommended 10 minutes!
The results are quite instantaneous with this mask and it does everything it says on the tin and more! When I remove it, my skin doesn’t feel tight or stripped like it can sometimes do with clay masks, it just feels super soft and very clean. My skin looks clearer, brighter and firmer and my pores are visibly more refined. I didn’t experience any aggravation or redness on my from this mask and my skin still felt nourished even though impurities are being removed. I have used this mask both at night and first thing in the morning, but I have to say because of the firming and brightening results, I definitely preferred to use this one in the morning as it gave me a beautiful canvas on which my make up applied more evenly, resulting in a more polished look. It is definitely a great product to use before a special occasion and I can see why Charlotte uses this on the stars before red carpet events, it really transforms the skin in an instant.
At $70/£45 the Charlotte Tilbury Goddess Skin Clay Mask it is a pretty pricey product, but I only had to use a tiny amount to cover my whole face as the formula is so creamy, so I think the 75ml/2.5oz tube would actually last a long time. I think this mask would work on all skin types and is the perfect pick-me-up for dull or congested skins. This has now become a firm favorite in my skincare arsenal and would highly recommend it to all.
