Clarins SOS Comfort Nourishing Balm Mask | SOS Hydra Refreshing Hydration Mask | SOS Pure Rebalancing Clay Mask
Housed in fun and colorful squeezable tubes (75ml), the SOS Masks are available in three varieties designed for different skin types. Made with a kaolin base, the SOS Pure Rebalancing Clay Mask is suitable for combination and oily skin. With a creamy formulation that's light green in color, the mask also contains alpine willow herb extract. In combination with the clay, the extract reduces shine, helping the skin stay mattified for longer. The mask feels pretty tingly and stingy at first and then sets to a soft clay finish after 15 or so minutes. Although I didn't experience any dryness or redness, I wouldn't recommend this to those with sensitive skin as the tingly sensation may be a little irritating.

Next up is the SOS Comfort Nourishing Balm Mask. Formulated with the seed butter and oil of mango, this mask has a noticeably thicker, balm-like texture. It feels immediately soothing and nourishing on the face, making it perfect for those with normal to dry skin. The mask washes off easily, leaving behind softened, supple skin with no greasy residues. Last but not least is the SOS Hydra Refreshing Hydration Mask. Made with a hyaluronic acid complex that helps the skin retain moisture, the mask has a lightweight creamy texture. Also formulated with leaf of life (Kalanchoe pinnata) extract, the mask feels super calming and comfortable on the face. Similar to the SOS Comfort mask, the SOS Hydra mask does not set and washes off easily with a damp face cloth, revealing hydrated and refreshed skin.
Overall, this is a nice and affordable mask collection customized for different skin types. All three have a subtle and pleasant floral scent and they are nicely formulated with quality ingredients (no alcohol at the top of the list). If you are a big fan of the "multi-masking" trend, then all three are worth a try to target your various skin concerns.
