Review – mark. Shine Fighter Oil Control Mask

I am trying out mark’s latest addition to its skincare family, shine fighter oil-control mask. Here’s what mark. has to say about this product and what it does for you:

“This oil-absorbing clay-based mask delivers skin-balancing and pore-cleansing benefits for a super complexion. Naturally exfoliating sugar cane enhances skintone and texture while apricot serves up a dose of vitamin A and C. It’s the best way to keep shine in check.”

Sounds magical right? Well it pretty much is. It feels fantastic on when first applied. The first thing I noticed was the very soothing cooling effect it has on the skin. And the abundance of cucumber aroma, lol. I’m guessing cucumber is just a very strong scent because I kind of would have expected it to smell sweet like sugar or apricot. There is no fragrance added, so this is just how it smells.

Don’t mistake it containing apricot for it containing scrubby granules, as that is not the case. It’s very smooth and creamy going on. The exfoliation going on in this mask is more at the cellular level, not physical exfoliation from grainy texture. These natural chemical exfoliants are great for brightening skin, lightening scars, and helping with blackheads.

mark. recommends wearing this mask for up to 5 minutes. I always stretch that, I think I wore this for about 10. It rinsed off fairly easily with my little facial scrubbie pad and warm water. I always go over my face with a baby wipe after rinsing a mask, too. Gotta be sure to get all of it off! Just be careful not to get it in your eyes.

After using, my face feels free from oil without feeling tight or dried out. It also feels very soft! I will continue to use this because I sort of like it better than my other clay masks. It dries up the oil while feeling very soothing. Sometimes after using a drying clay mask I feel the need to follow up with a moisturizing mask, but I do not feel like I need to with this one.

mark. shine fighter oil control mask is 3.4 oz (100 mL) and $7. If you are interested in ordering, check out my mark boutique. :) Shipping is free with a $35+ order with the code MARKFS35.
