Clay-based face masks are a boon for me as I am blessed with oily skin. I have tried many of them, but the 3-minute claim about this one was exciting. I have never tried anything from this brand before; I got to know about it through IMBB and have read some good reviews of its products.

My Experience with Beauty Formulas Cucumber 3 Minute Clay Mask:
This mask is different from the regular clay masks, as it also rejuvenates skin, and then the combination of cucumber and clay seemed new and different to me as cucumber is very hydrating and clay mask is slightly drying. The mask comes in a light green tube, with a flip cap. The tube is not very small, but is not too big and can be easily carried around in handbag. The cap shuts tightly and overall packaging is sturdy.
The mask inside is more of a thick creamy consistency and is almost white colored with a light green tint. It has a very refreshing and light cucumber fragrance in the beginning which vanishes quickly. The consistency is totally different from regular clay masks; it looks more like a thick whipped cream. It spreads out easily, but while spreading, it gets absorbed into the skin slightly. You cannot get a thick layer of mask on your face, as while applying, it gets absorbed, but because it starts getting absorbed, you might want to apply more and more, and this way one can go overboard easily. It is 100% paraben free and allergen free which is great.
Applying it is very easy; on a clean face, I spread it over and it gives a cooling sensation on the skin. Then, I wash it off after 3-4 minutes. It does not become hard or stretchy like other masks, it dries up very quickly, but removing it is slightly difficult. With water, it does not come off easily, so I either use a moist cotton pad or a sponge to remove it. It does not leave behind any layer on the skin. It does not moisturize or dry out the skin. This is great for winters as the traditional clay masks always dries out my skin after application and I cannot skip a moisturizer even though I have oily skin. It cleanses skin quite well and leaves it feeling refreshed, bright, smooth and clean. So far, I have used this mask 4-5 times and I have not had any problems on skin, and it is safe for sensitive skin as well.
