Now that your skin is in tip-top shape, keep it protected with Pür Minerals CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 40

Pür Minerals

Birchbox Breakdown

At the risk of sounding gross, sometimes our pores can be harder to unclog than the shower drains in our pre-war apartments. (See, gross.) Designed with all skin types in mind, this exfoliating mud mask contains clay sourced from the Big Horn Mountains out west to lift away all kinds of impurities, leaving skin bright and smooth. If only reaching our landlords was so easy.

How it Works

Pascalite clay, which Native Americans in Wyoming have used on their skin for centuries, contains calcium bentonite to calm both chronic and sudden irritation (fun fact: It’s traditionally used to treat insect bites and stings). Cucumber extract reduces redness, while a mild dose of salicylic acid sloughs away dead cells to renew skin and fight breakouts. The nondrying formula is gluten-free and suitable for sensitive types.

How to Use

Spread a thin layer of the mask onto clean skin. Wait until it dries and cracks appear on the surface. Gently rinse with warm water.

Excellent Mask

I have been experimenting with various face masks for longer than I would like to admit. This should definitely be your go to mask when your skin is needing a little oomph. You can feel this working, I just used this for maybe the second or third time since owning it and honestly wondered why I don't use it more often.

You can feel the product working. It literally pulled my lips apart while it was drying. If you have sensitive skin like me, don't use this product if you plan on going out within a few hours. It does make my skin very red after but a little redness is worth the results in my opinion! I will ALWAYS keep this product in stock at my house!

Just what I needed

I have been dying for a mud/clay mask, but nothing seemed quite right. I decided to jump for this one without sampling it first, but no need. It's just what I wanted-- something I can use every now and then when my pores need some attention. I've used it twice so far-- my skin feels so smooth and clean after. Not painful like strips. It really does the job.

Great Face Mask

This is exactly what I was looking for. I just wanted something that I could put on occasionally to help unclog my pores and smooth out my complexion and it works great.

Miracle product

I have tried so many brands and different kinds of masks. I ordered this one after research and when I used it for the first time i was amazed. This pulls at my face like no other mask and my pores look and feel completely clean after. I will make sure to never run out of this product. I think this is such an under-rated product for people who are unhappy with their skin for whatever reason.

I received a sample of this when I ordered my Pur powder and I love it. My skin felt so smooth and my complexion was bright. The entire Pur minerals line is incredible for sensitive skin. I will be purchasing this product. Highly recommended!

Overall a good product!

I bought this because I was looking for a mask that would get the job done. I have used it twice in a week, and I definitely can feel the difference on my face making it smoother and feeling cleaner. I even put it on and paired it with a nice bath to relax after a long week! Leaving it on for 20 minutes is really all you need to get the full effect of the mask!

I ordered this on a whim and was so happy with my choice. It works really well and its smells pretty good, too! My pores were visibly cleaner after one use. Easy to apply and comes off with very little effort. I might even have to buy another bottle because my fiance just discovered it and he loved it too!
