Botanicals Balancing Mask in Green Clay & Avocado Review

Hey Everyone!

Today I am bringing you a review of the Green Clay & Avocado Balancing Mask I was kindly sent to review from Botanicals. It arrived beautifully presented in a small branded gift bag with tissue paper inside and I got the 60g pot (they also have a salon size 175g pot available). 

The mask contains Mediterranean green clay to help draw out impurities and eliminate dead skin cells and cold pressed avocado and jojoba which are rich in essential fatty acids to leave your skin feeling soft smooth and clear. Sounds great to me! I was advised that the mask is suitable for all skin types but anyone with oily or problem skin like me will have the best results. 

For anyone with mature or dry skin they have a rose clay and rosehip version available here which is more targeted to your skin types.

The product is concentrated so isn't watered down in any way and you only need a small amount, the directions say that you can mix with a little flower water in the palm of your hand but I haven't tried this yet. 

The directions advise to use the mask once a week which I have now done for two weeks consecutively, smoothing the product all over my face avoiding the eye area, leaving on for ten minutes and then I took it off using a warm muslin cloth and patted my face dry. 

You'll be pleased to know that the scent is really nice and due to the oils the product almost melts into your skin so it doesn't sit on the surface like a normal clay mask would and crack when you move your face!

So the results, after two weeks use (two applications) I can report that I have noticed the redness in my cheeks has calmed down noticeably and I haven't had any new spots/ the ones I did have are cleared up which must be down to the product as I haven't changed anything else in my routine. I am going to continue using it on this basis alone as spots are literally the bane of my life when I want my face to look good for pictures! (Side note- Collection's lasting perfection concealer is the best I've found for hiding the buggers)

I would definitely recommend giving this product a go, for £18.95 you get a good size pot and you only need a small amount each time so it does last a while and it's all natural ingredients (70% of which are organic) which is always something I prefer where possible.

You can check out the range at www.botanicals.co.uk for the full range of products, their cleansers and toners are next on my list to look at.

  1. Oh that sounds amazing. I love trying out new face masks. Digging the packaging as well nice and simple yet makes a statement at the same time :) xx

  2. I have not tried Botanicals line but I do make my own I use Aztec green clay and apple cider vinegar with Aloe Vera and a couples of drops of lavender essential oil in it mix it all up and apply it the same way as you do with the Botanicals lines and I love it! love its texture and yup, it does leave your check and nose area a bit red but it dissipates after a bit and leaves your skin super flawless too!

  3. Ohhhh I really want to try this and I LOVE the packaging!!


  4. The packaging looks lovely but the product doesn't lol, I do like the sounds of the ingredients & think it would be great for my skin.
