I am very much a summer, sunshine, warm and cozy kind of person, so whenever winter starts rolling in my mood immediately starts to crash. Not only that, but my skin does a complete switch on me and the products I use need drastic updates. My usually spot prone t-zone goes dry, and the rest of my face which is usually pretty healthy and happy seems to dull. Luckily, I have found a face mask that tackles both issues! Whether you need a pick me up, or your skin needs a boost, Trilogy Mineral Radiance Mask will have you covered.



Made with kaolin clay, rosehip, and pohutukawa, this face mask is packed full of natural ingredients that target all skin types.  Not only that, but the mask works as a deep cleanse and pore refiner. 

The kaolin clay revitalizes and refines the skin from the inside out, and helps boost cell renewal which leads to healthy, radiant skin.  Rosehip, which is a personal favourite of mine (which explains why I have about seven different Trilogy products!), hydrates and nourishes your face, making it especially great for winter use.  And pohutukawa, a traditional Christmas flower from New Zealand, acts as a toner and assists in skin regeneration.  I mean, what more can you ask for??

The 60ml Mineral Radiance Mask comes in 100% recyclable packaging, and includes an applicator wand.  To be honest I was slightly dubious about the applicator when I first saw it, as it is a flat plastic teardrop shape, but this worked so well!  The wand allows you to get the right amount of product from the start, and then spreads it perfectly so you are not left with uneven patches on your face.

                                 

Trilogy recommends using this once or twice a week if you suffer from dry skin, and once a week for oily skin.  While most other clay masks tend to dry out my skin, this one is gentle enough to use frequently (not to mention gentle enough for sensitive skin!).  The product doesn't crack when drying,  cause any burning or itching, or leave that tight feeling so many other cleansing masks give.  Even better, it doesn't seem to cause quite so many unwelcome spots to erupt the next day.  It seems to draw out all the nasties a bit more gently, so you don't need to pre-plan quite so much with Trilogy.

Using this face mask is also much less messy and seemed simpler than some of the others I have used.  After you have already washed your face and neck, you just scoop a bit of product onto the plastic wand, then sweep the clay over the areas of the face.  Like I mentioned earlier, this wand is so great at making sure the mask is smooth and even.  This makes the drying process pretty quick, and you don't have to wait that extra five minutes for your cheeks to dry after the rest of your face is done.  The mask itself is relatively thick -- I mean, it is clay after all -- but it doesn't take a long wait to have it fully dry.  About 6-8 minutes on average I would say, so this is perfect if you are in a rush.

     

Once the mask has dried, you simply rinse it off with warm water, and voila, you are done!  If you aren't keen on post-mask clean up, you might want to apply this right before a shower, as the mask is a darker colour so it does show up pretty strongly in your sink and requires a bit of extra rinsing.

                                             

I have been using Trilogy's Mineral Radiance Mask for about six months now, and my skin has never felt smoother or looked healthier.  Even my partner has commented on how 'glowy' my face looks.  Plus, I love that the brand boasts being free of GMOs, is cruelty free, is completely natural, and supports ethical practices. 

If you want to try this mask out over the winter season, you can grab your own pot for £20.50 on Love Lula.  Plus, if you order before December 2nd, you can grab 15% off by using code FRIDAY at checkout.
