Hi everyone, today I am reviewing the Lakme Clean Up Face Mask Clear Pores. Lakme has launched three variants of the clean up range named Lakme Clean Up Nourishing Glow, Lakme Clen Up Fresh Fairness and Lakme Clean Up Clear Pores. I have oily skin with open pores, acne scars and few blemishes. So I bought all the 3 products from the Clear Pores Clean Up range, I have already reviewed Lakme Clean Up Clear Pores Face Wash and Lakme Clean Up Clear Pores Scrub.
Packaging: The packaging is exactly the same as of the Lakme Clean Up Clear Pores Scrub. It comes in a sturdy turquoise tube with white screw cap. The packaging is hygienic, convenient to use and travel-friendly.
Texture & Fragrance: This face mask has a mint green color and has a very refreshing fragrance. Its creamy texture glides smoothly onto the skin.
Price & Availability: The price of the Lakme Clean Up Clear Pores Mask is Rs.110 for 50g, Rs.225 for 100g. You can buy it from local beauty stores and also online from Nykaa.com, Flipkart.com, Amazon.in, Jabong.com, etc.
My Experience: This face mask is enriched with green tea extracts and salicylic acid which are well known for tackling problems related to oily/combination skin. I apply this mask after cleansing & exfoliating my skin with Lakme Clean Up Clear Pores face wash and scrub. I take a generous amount of this mask on my palm and then apply it evenly on my face & neck using my fingers. When I apply it initially, it gives cool sensation to my skin, but it does not sting to my sensitive skin. I leave it on my face for 20 minutes and then rinse it off using tap water. I usually splash water on my face and then massage gently, I found this way much easier to rinse it off. I advise to use sponge or face towel to wash it off otherwise, it will take a little more time to remove this mask.
After using this mask, my skin feels soft, smooth and glowing. It reduces oil without making skin dry and my skin remains oil free for next few hours. It does shrink open pores temporarily and provides adequate hydration to my oily skin. As it is a clay based mask, so it is not very suitable for the dry skin people. Only a small amount of face mask is required for each application and this tube (100g) will last for 10-15 usages.
