I received my Befine Warming Clay Mask for free in my last months GlossyBox. It’s available on their web site and sells for $25 U.S. for a 5oz/150ml tube. Although the package says it’s a one time use samples there is more then enough to use it several times. This mask is made up of kaoline natural clay, arnica Montana flower extract, pomegranate extract and cardamom. The Befine warming clay mask is a self warming formula that heats up on contact and is supposed to work to purify and refine your skin. Each time I used it I only used a light covering. At first I could feel it warming, but by the time I had my whole face covered that warming feeling was gone. It smelled just as you might think it did, like clay witch I didn’t find very appealing. I wish the pomegranate scent was what I could smell in stead of the clay, but I guess that’s just how it’s made. It didn’t really harden over the five to ten minutes that it says you should leave it on, it just sat there. When it was time to take it off, well that was another adventure in its self. It said to just use warm water to gently remove it, but there was no way it was coming completely off in a gentle manner. Even though I lightly applied it I still found it hard to completely remover. Every time I thought I had it all off and I looked into the mirror I could see an oily shine all over my face that even felt oily to touch. I have combo skin to begin with so this was the last thing I wanted to see after I remover this mask. I even tried to use a toner after wards to help remove this film that was on the surface of my skin and I still had no luck. Each time I tried this mask I came up with the same results, I had the same oily shine. The only way to remover this film was to rewash my face with my own cleanser, something you really shouldn’t have to do after using a mask of any type. The Befine Warming Clay Mask wasn't for me, but it might work better for those that don’t have combo skin like I have. I’d tell you that if you’d like to try it to see if you can get a sample before you shell out $25 for it and then find out its wasn’t for you either.
I really wanted to like this mask,with ingredients like clay,arnica,pomegranate and cardamon I really thought this would be heavenly.When applying this product they are not kidding about warming it gets hot the minute it hits your skin its a very strange sensation but I didn't mind it.I left it on my face for five minutes and had the most horrible time rinsing this off my face.
My face felt so oily and it felt like a such a heavy residue was left behind.I had to scrub my face three times with different cleansers and still felt it on my face.I finally got it removed with a toner.Perhaps this may work for someone with extremely dry skin.
