Skin type: Oily, sensitive and acne-prone
Incorporating face masks in your skincare routine is the perfect way to combat and prevent acne. Also, using face masks is just one of the great ways to relax and detoxify the skin. I have an extremely oily skin, which is equally sensitive and prone to acne. I also have large pores on both my cheeks and due to Dubai’s hot and humid weather, my skin can easily get breakouts. I have been using this face mask for almost two months now and, I just wanted to share how this product fared for me.

Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Charcoal Face Mask comes in a tube packaging with a flip flop cap, which is sturdy and shuts tightly. It is a matte black coloured tube with the name printed in white letters on the tube. The packaging is pretty simple but, it’s easy to carry around and use as well.
The face mask has a smooth consistency and is easy to spread. Like a regular clay mask, this one also takes around 15-20 minutes to dry completely. However, removing it is a tough task, and it stains the basin, too.

Initially, when you open the cap, the face mask gives out a strong smell of tea tree and witch hazel fragrances. I like mild fragrances so, it is a big turn off for me. This facial mask has 3 active ingredients to combat acne, which are tea tree oil, charcoal and witch hazel. All the three ingredients are known to prevent acne and cleanse even the deepest layer of your skin. Thus, it makes your skin clearer, smoother and brighter. I had high hopes from this mask since my skin has been prone to more breakouts for the past few months so, I’ve decided to give this mask a try, but unfortunately, it disappointed me.

I apply it once or twice a week as per the given instructions but, I see no remarkable difference. It’s just a basic clay mask, in fact, a plain multani mitti or a neem face mask acts much better when applied on the skin. It kept my skin oil-free for about an hour to an hour and a half. There were no results, which was a complete disappointment. However, I did notice that my complexion became a bit brighter and smoother. Overall, it’s an average face mask with no extraordinary effects.
