Review: Acnes Tea Tree Oil Clay Mask

I was browsing to girls forum week ago, and everyone was talking about Acnes tea tree oil mask as: "Another cheap but great product!"  I was not too sure about it at first cuz I got an issues with acnes clearing gel and powder lotion (`ε´) (like 3 years ago, my skin is terrible TT^TT, thanks to beautycode skincare range, it's all way much much much better now..yaaay~)

ღ Product description:
Triple Action: Deep Cleansing + Oil Control + Anti-bacterial
Acnes Tea Tree Oil Clay Mask contains tea tree oil to balance oil secretion and moisture. It also helps to restore natural softness and give a healthy complexion.
- Contains tea tree oil that prevents acne. Reduce excess sebum, and keep skin moisturized.
- Deeply cleanses away dirt and excess sebum.
- Natural mineral treat skin texture.
- AC NET helps reduce excess oil secretion.
- Aloe extract keeps healthy and moisturized skin.

- Price: US $3.00

Tea tree oil has many wonderful properties, such as “purifying antibacterial properties and is known to help soothe blemished skin.” This product also has kaolin clay in it, which “helps control shine”, and ”deeply cleanses, drawing out impurities from the skin. Is a mineral that helps to restore the skin's natural balance”.

ღ What I say:
My first impression was good =) I've been using natural homemade-mask up till now. Acnes clay mask has a thick and smooth texture, make it easy to be applied. It feels comfortable and soothing, I enjoyed my time wearing it (just once in a week, or maybe once in two weeks...haha, depends on my skin condition). Once it gets into water, it will easily removed. I used micro fiber cloth to wipe off any excess mask. I can feel my skin is slick even when I washed it all off with water, but once you pat dry, the greasy feelings is not there anymore, all left is your soft and moisturized skin (σ・∀・)σ

Things that I like is:
-It smells nice (similar to The Body Shop tea tree mask)
-Contains natural extract (aloe and tea tree oil)
-the texture! love the thickness,'s super cheap! US 3.00 for 50gr of tea tree clay mask~

∑(。。)  What I don't like:
-contains artificial color. Blue 1 (CI 42090), and Yellow 5 (CI 19140).
I'm super strict at choosing skincare product for daily usage. If this is not a mask, I mean like daily lotion cleanser or toner. I won't ever buy it! (I've been using non parfumed, non alcohol, non preservatives, and non artificial coloring skin care product for 3 years up till now, and it did a really really great job to keep my skin in great condition)
and this is the reason why I wear it only twice/month, hehe...
Post my ugly pic wearing acnes tea tree oil clay mask....hahahahaha...feel lazy to wear any hairband. I applied it thinly, and it goes on bright green.
Overall rating: 3 out of 5!
it it has no artificial color it would be 5 out of 5.

okay, and that would be all ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ will be back with my eyeliner gel review~
