Clay based Laidbare For Richer For Porer Facial Mask, targeting oily and combination skin, detoxifies and moisturizes, while also performing as a mild exfoliator, leaving the skin calm and smooth.
Facial masks are a treat for the skin and while finding a moisturizing mask is quite easy, finding a good detox mask, especially one you don’t have have to mix yourself, can be a bit more tricky.
I’ve been using various clays as my detox masks for about 15 years now; I make my own detox mask, using, mostly, green clay, mixing it with tea tree essential oil, tea tree and/or witch hazel hydrolate, along with white willow bark extract.
But having a mask, which comes in a tube, is far more convenient – and Laidbare For Richer For Porer Facial Mask is that convenient solution. I received the mask in my March Love Lula Beauty Box, and this is the charm of beauty boxes – you get a product which may have been on your wish list for a while, but somehow, other products always found their way in your basket or a product may not have been on your radar, and now that you’ve tried it, you’re glad you did.

Laidbare For Richer For Porer Facial Mask comes in a generous 50ml tube. The scent is somewhere between minty and herbal; it’s a pleasant and not overpowering. The texture is somewhat thick; what surprised me, at first, were those tiny parts in it – I thought maybe the formulation was not whipped enough – it turns out, the detox mask also works as a mild exfoliator.
I apply a rather thick layer of Laidbare For Richer For Porer Facial Mask, and since the mask does not dry quickly, I leave it on for a good 20 min. While the mask itself will provide, along with detox, exfoliation and hydration, for a good pampering session, I suggest first using an exfoliator, followed by this mask, then using a hydrating mask.
After the mask dries, I rinse it with warm water, massaging the mask away, as it contains tiny exfoliators, therefore using this mask as a peeling as well.
The results of using Laidbare For Richer For Porer Facial Mask are rather quick – a smooth, calm skin, while after using it twice weekly for the past month, it lessened the appearance of pores – just as it promises it would.
I had no adverse reaction to this mask at all – there was no irritation, no acne, no redness – just a calm, smooth and nourished skin – after all, it also contains shea butter, aloe vera juice, rose water… The mask, after risning, does not leave a greasy or sticky feeling.

My final word?
Laidbare For Richer For Porer Facial Mask is quite a surprise, really. The results are exactly what the mask promises – impurities are sucked out of the skin, if there are some spots, they are dried up. This detox mask, which also moonlights as a mild exfoliator, leaves the skin calm and smooth, and within weeks of using the Laidbare For Richer For Porer Facial Mask, the results are visible. Given the ingredients, it also moisturizes the skin.
With using this mask twice a week, it should last you for about 3 months – and you will want to apply a thicker layer, as it feels really good on the skin. I would recommend this mask exactly to those, whom this mask is targeting – those with oily, combination skin, who need an extra help detoxifying their skin. If you have acne and/or spots, the mask will gently dry them up, but it won’t dry up your skin.
And all of this for about €10 for a 50ml tube? Yeah, that’s what I call a great deal. Do I recommend the Laidbare For Richer For Porer Facial Mask? Certainly.
