A lot has changed in my life in the last five years, but one thing hasn’t - there’s always a PURITO product (or two or three!) on my bathroom sink. I used PURITO long before I had my own blog or before they were an internationally recognized brand. I still remember when they only had three serums in their lineup.
PURITO recently released two new masks, today’s review is for PURITO Bentolin Pore Clay Mask, available with international shipping on Glowmonde, Amazon, YesStyle (reward code KBHOBBIT), and Stylevana (discount code INF10KBH). It is vegan, cruelty free, and comes in sustainable packaging to protect the world’s ecosystem. The tube is made with 40% PIR (post-industrial recycled material), the cap is 100% PIR, and the outer box is biodegradable upcycled sugarcane. Detailed recycling instructions are available on PURITO’s site.
PURITO Bentolin Pore Clay Mask combines kaolin, bentonite, volcanic ash, and charcoal to absorb excess sebum, remove debris and improve the overall texture and appearance of skin. The ingredients were carefully selected to help treat existing impurities while also preventing future clogged pores. The mask has a thick, creamy consistency and a dark gray color. There is no scent, at least as far as I can tell.
How to use
Apply a thick layer to clean, dry skin
Leave on for 10 minutes
Rinse with lukewarm water and pat try
Follow with the rest of your routine
These are the official instructions provided by PURITO. However, I like to do things just a bit differently. First, I leave my skin slightly damp after cleansing, then apply the mask (this ensures a gentle experience for my combination skin). I like using wash off masks while soaking in a warm bath - it’s so relaxing, plus the steam prevents the mask from fully drying. I personally avoid letting clay masks dry into a crisp as that can be stressful for my skin. The clay still works really well even if it’s not dry and flaking. I encourage you to try different ways of using this mask and see which works best for your skin.
While rinsing with hands is completely fine, I highly recommend trying a konjac sponge for a gentle massage and a more efficient rinse - PURITO makes some lovely ones that run larger than most other options (review here).
Another win from PURITO and I’m not surprised. I have combination skin with dry/normal cheeks and an oily t-zone. While I don’t typically struggle with acne and blackheads (aside from an occasional breakout), my sebaceous filaments are definitely there. Sebaceous filaments are a natural and healthy part of skin functioning which can appear as dark dots, typically in the oily areas like the nose (and for me also next to the nose).
PURITO Bentolin Pore Clay Mask does a great job at absorbing all of that excess sebum and making my skin look and feel poreless. There is no way to permanently shrink pores, but a good clay mask can make them more clear and therefore smaller in appearance.
My skin feels clean and clear but not dry or stripped. I apply this mask all over my face, but it never bothers my dry cheeks, which is a huge plus. I’ve been using this 1-2 times a week, but might adjust that in the summer. It’s definitely a must have before any special events if I plan on wearing makeup and want the skin to look extra smooth.
