Doing a little research to find out exactly what Golden Root is to review this face mask, I turned up some uses that I really wasn’t expecting! It’s apparantly commonly used as a herbal alternative to the little blue pills – and I’m not using the trade name because I don’t want to be forever spammed! It is derived from the Rhodiola plant. Anyway, I loved this deeply cleansing mask, that comes in individual portions and with a brush to apply it. Dipping the brush into the pot to apply the mask turned it into something of a ritual that I unexpectedly felt brought added enjoyment to the purifying party. Also with China Clay to absorb toxins and get rid of deep seated grime and old cells, I must admit it had a little sting to it on first application. However, this quickly diminished as the clay set slightly and became firmer. My skin felt clean without dryness once the formula was washed off after 10 minutes or so, which is a turn up – most clay based products I’ve tried are a little drying especially on skin that isn’t oily. I think the set is expensive at £30 – I’m not how far over and above it goes than cheaper purifying masks, but all in all, as a luxury way to rootle out impurities and leave pores clean that was a pleasure to use.
