Skin Rescue Purifying Mask with Red Clay is a peel off mask that delivers immediately visible results akin to a professional treatment. In just 20 minutes, the mask, with its potent concentration of Red Clay, detoxifies and deeply purifies the complexion by drawing out skin impurities, regulating excess sebum and eliminating clogged pores. In addition, mineral rich Red Clay reduces congestive pigmentation in problem areas where pimples previously formed and improves the skin’s texture. As the mask is peeled away, the skin emerges smoother and softer while pores appear visibly reduced. The result is a complexion that looks like you have just received a two-hour facial.
