Face – Exfoliate
Clinique’s City Block Purifying Charcoal Clay Mask + Scrub
What It Is:
A 5-minute dual-action detoxifying – exfoliating clay mask.
What It Does:
Purifies and polishes your skin. This dual-purpose exfoliator gives a delightful deep-clean treatment.
Natural bamboo charcoal and kaolin clay help to remove pollution and impurities, while natural silica beads gently refine texture.
Suitable for extra cleansing; if you have oily skin that can benefit from the use of a clay mask; City Block Purifying Charcoal Clay Mask + Scrub is for ideal for you. This highly absorbent and fragrance-free product helps make skin look smooth and refined in just five minutes.
Once applied this clay mask/scrub hybrid goes on as a medium gray shade that turns light blue as it dries, indicating its time to rinse.
You’ll feel the clay become progressively tighter as it dries, but once you rinse, the skin doesn’t feel taut or overly dry. This clay mask product would not be suitable for someone with dry, dehydrated skin.

How To Use:
Use 1-2 times per week.
Leave on for five minutes or until mask turns blue.
Combines cleansing of a scrub with the oil absorption of a clay mask.
It will help reduce pore size and clear blackheads.
Leaves skin refined and matte, not tight or dry.
Works in five minutes and rinses off easily.
Contains gentle, plant-based soothing agents.
Not only will it remove dead skin, but it also removes impurities and pollution from your skin. This allows for the new skin to appear with a healthy, glowing appearance to it.
When you are washing the mask off, you gently work it into the skin and get the scrub effect but without the harshness of some ‘scrub’ exfoliants, this is perfect as we don’t want to be ‘tearing’ at our face to achieve good results! The other thing I like about this mask is that it doesn’t leave your skin feeling too dry or tight.
It’s not a deep clean, but it helps to keep skin looking good, and it is an important part of your skin management program when applied twice a week.
The reviews for this product have been excellent.
I like that this product has a clean ingredient list, no added fragrance or irritants.
I would recommend this product.
