I hear so many raves about Clarks Botanicals, so was extra disappointed in this Intense Radiance Mask. It just didn’t deliver on radiance for me. Now, it could very well be that it just wasn’t the right thing for my skin – it certainly left plenty of moisture on my complexion so I couldn’t fault it there, but really didn’t deliver on any clarity or radiance. It’s base is white clay and the product is indicated for aging, problematic or combination skin. Find it at SpaceNK, £58.

I couldn’t be more impressed with Super-Mud. Because it is indicated for problem skin, I used a tester with spots across his chin to try it out. Without a doubt, it reduced redness around the spots and actually sent the spots into super-quick healing. It’s very impressive and I’d recommend it especially for men with any pimples around the beard area because it seems so soothing for ingrowns and razor bumps. It’s £45 and launches in November at SpaceNK.
