The Vichy Normaderm Tri-Active Mask* ($19.95CDN,125ml) is potent stuff! This is the specially rented, industrial steam cleaner of clay masks, the soaker-upper of oil and the crime-fighter against pimples. All you sufferers of acne pay attention, I don't think I've ever quite used something this powerful.
The ingredients are impressive from the start. Containing clay, glycolic acid and salicyclic acid, the mask is formulated on extra-strength mode. Intended for acne prone skin, it can be used as an exfoliating face wash or as a mask. Only use a thin amount and only leave it on for 5 minutes.
Since my skin isn't acne prone but does still get spot breakouts, I've used this on an as-needed basis or as spot treatment and when I do, holy does it work to soak up oil. This has helped under-the-surface, yet-to-be-explosive pimples die down before they even start.
Since I only have combination skin, I'm pretty sure those with oily skin and acne issues will love this mask. Though I'm really hyping up how strong it is, it isn't any more stripping than other clay masks I've used but for my skin, I still wouldn't use this more than once a week.
What's your super hero oil fighter?
