SKINCARE | MaskerAide Matcha Detoxifying Clay Mask

I think I have just a handful of clay mask reviews on the blog mainly because clay tends to be very drying on my normal/dry skin so I am careful about what I use. For my skin type, a clay mask needs to make my skin feel refreshed and clean, maybe even a little brighter, but never EVER tight. Of the two wash-off masks MaskerAide released in 2020 (this still feels recent to me), I reviewed the Pineapple Brightening Jelly Mask last month (here) and now I have the Matcha Detoxifying Clay Mask!

This mask is a clay mask that is on the more hydrating side with peach and lychee extract to hydrate and even out skin tone in addition to the antibacterial and purifying effects of matcha and kaolin. Now, I know this mask is hydrating because during the start of the pandemic when these masks were launching, I helped MaskerAide take photos with these masks since everyone had to stay at home under lockdown. I had to apply this mask in so many areas and on all different parts of my face all in the same day and every time I rinsed off, my skin did not feel tight or sucked of life! 

This mask is best for normal/combo/oily skin types or a hot day in the summer where your skin needs a good purge after sweat, sunscreen and air and though I don't use this mask a lot during the drier months, I did whip it out when my skin felt congested awhile back and needed a bit of brightening (yay for the niacinamide in here!).

Ingredients: Aqua/Water/Eau, Glycerin, Niacinamide, Dipropylene Glycol, Fraxinus Rhynchophylla Extract, Ocimum Basilicum (Basil) Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Fruit Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, Ficus Carica (Fig) Fruit Extract, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Carbomer, Polyglyceryl-10 Laurate, Tromethamine, Adenosine, Xanthan Gum, Disodium Edta, Ceramide NP, Parfum (Fragrance), 1,2-Hexanediol, Hydroxyacetophenone

This mask is such a fun colour and super smooth to apply with either an applicator or fingers. Generally, I apply this mask to my T-Zone so one little pack last more than a couple of uses! I often pair it with the brightening pineapple jelly mask to reap the benefits of both masks all at once!

Final verdict: When it comes to a clay mask, I like the packaging and the amount in each of these sticks because I never finish a pot or tube of clay and I like that I can get at least 3 uses out of each packet if I just apply to my oilier zones. It's also a mask that isn't the least bit drying which is fantastic and I can definitely see a difference in skin brightness when I wash it off! Fun to use and one that I have shared with friends and family!
