What the brand says about the product?

Acne-prone skin needs multi-dimensional care – to cleanse, care, control acne, prevent recurrence, and to do all of this gently – phew! No mean mask, this.

Get instantly brighter, healthier-looking skin. A soft, creamy formula that applies nicely and is also easy to wash off, without drying your face. Gentle exfoliation of glycolic acid removes dead cells and impurities, while antioxidant benefit of organic green tea extracts helps control acne (pimples) over the long run. A must-have product for oily and combination skin types.

♥ Natural clays to absorb oil
♥ Glycolic acid for gentle exfoliation of dead cells – get instant brightness
♥ Green tea extracts to help control acne
♥ Gentle, non-drying, creamy formula works well for oily and combination skin types.

Great for: Normal, oily and combination skin types, even those with acne.

Not recommended for: Dry skin, cystic acne and extremely sensitive skin.

Key Ingredients:

  • Kaolin & bentonite
    Naturally occurring clays, known to be effective for absorbing excess oil, exfoliating, cleansing and refreshing the skin. Some things are best left natural.
  • Green tea extracts
    Concentrated source of polyphenols and other antioxidants, to stop the acne formation cycle in its tracks. Oxidation of skin-produced sebum is a key step in acne formation – something we are looking to stop here.
  • Glycolic acid
    Sweeps away skin debris and prepares the skin for self-renewal. Our goodness chemists know exactly what’s required to do the job without overdoing it.

Other Ingredients:

Aqua (Water), Bentonite, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Cetearyl Alcohol, Ethylhexylglycerine, Fragrance, FDA Approved Colours, Glyceryl Stearate, Glycolic Acid, Kaolin, Phenoxyethanol

Directions for use:

Gently apply a thin layer over all areas of the face, taking care not to let the product enter your eyes. Wait for about 30 minutes or until the mask dries completely, and wash off with plain water. Do not scrub face with towel, gently pat dry and use a gentle moisturizer to seal in the goodness ingredients. Use once a week.

Please note: You are likely to experience a slight tingling sensation on your skin for the first few minutes after application – this is entirely normal for bentonite clay masks as they get to work removing the grime and dead cells from your skin.

Plum is always free of parabens, phthalates, propylene glycol, SLS, DEA and PABA

Consistency:

This mask comes with the same consistency as any other clay based mask. Just that I find that it is a little thicker than the usual clay based masks.

My thoughts:

Plum is emerging as a great brand. They boast of products made with natural ingredients and free from parabens. I was looking for a good face pack for a quick facial at home, as most of the packs bought never gave me the desired results, that’s when I found this one from Plum. This green tea range is specifically formulated for acne prone skin, the ingredients and the claims of the product were too attractive and I had to buy! 😛

I love the packaging of this product. It comes in a glass jar with plastic flap which covers the product under the lid. The flap nicely seals the product and prevents the jar from getting messy. Though the packaging justifies the price paid, it is not so travel friendly as the jar is quite heavy and made of glass. The consistency is a thick clay which dries within minutes (which I actually like because I’ve got so impatient waiting for some masks to dry 😛 ). The mask smells very natural and is very soothing. On washing it off, it gives a clear, soft and glowing skin. I think its mainly because of the bentonite in it, it effectively pulls out all the gunk out of the skin and makes it clean and clear. Glycolic acid which is used in most of the acne control products is a great ingredient and greatly helps to even out the skin. Green tea is again a great ingredient for acne which helps control sebum which is the root cause for acne. This mask effectively controls oil secretion and keeps skin hydrated. I love the glow this mask gives instantly and the effect stays on for a day. This product totally justifies all its claims and makes skin glow and gives clear skin and efficiently controls oil. As the days go by, the mask gets even thicker and you may find it a tad bit difficult to spread, use may use rose water or just plain water to make it a little easy to work with. (I’m not complaining here and I don’t see this as a problem! 😉 Just a word of advice!!) This mask is great for quick facials at home before an event when you don’t have the time to visit a salon. I have never liked a face mask this much nor have I used a mask this good which gives amazing results! I completely love this product and I will keep stocking this so that I don’t run out of it! 🙂 This mask is definitely worth the price. Highly highly recommend for combination, oily and acne prone skin!! 🙂 Thumbs up to Plum for coming up with such an amazing mask!

Price: Rs.475 for 60gms
