It’s no secret that I love a facemask. I like to do one around once a week. I think it’s perfect for a pamper session and really feels like a good time for self-care. They also deliver fantastic results.
Kathleen Natural have recently brought out a line of facemasks and we have been lucky enough to get our hands on one for our review.

Deep Pore Treatment Mask
I chose this mask out of the four of them because I have quite large pores around my nose and I also tend to do facemasks with my teenage daughter and teenagers skin can often be pretty spot-prone so it is perfect for her too.
This facemask is specifically tailored as a deep clean, to “minimize pores, reduce blackheads, and calm redness for a clear, balanced, and renewed complexion”.
The mask comes in a dark glass jar with a screw-top lid. Upon opening the jar, you can instantly smell the essential oils. It also acts as an aromatherapy product to soothe and relax your mood. It contains a multitude of beautiful ingredients such as kaolin clay, cucumber, tea tree, vitamin E, spinach, shea butter, rose water, sunflower oil, lavender, geranium and frankincense.
Using The Mask
The jar says to apply a thin, even layer to freshly cleansed skin. You then leave it for 10-15 minutes and remove it with a warm, damp face cloth.
Lissy and I applied ours using a foundation brush. We both noticed it felt cold when we first applied it. We left it on for 15 minutes. I like a facemask where you can leave it on for a good amount of time. I feel like the 5-minute ones are too short for a pamper session, by the time you’ve got it on, it’s time to take it off! We could feel the facemask drying on our skin towards the end of the 15 minutes.
Afterwards, my skin felt really clean and fresh. We both felt noticeably more relaxed. The following morning, my skin felt amazing! Fresh, my pores were visibly smaller and my skin just looked bright and clear.
