Volition Beauty | Detoxifying Silt Gelee Mask: Review
When I first discovered the Volition Beauty brand on Sephora, the first product of theirs that caught my eyes is the Detoxifying Silt Gelee Mask (C$79 for 60 ml). As someone with oily, combination skin, I love clarifying masks that unclog the pore by attracting impurities and excess sebum. Formulated with black silt that's sustainably harvested from Finnish lakes, the Detoxifying Silt Gelee Mask promises to do exactly that! To read more about it, click......

Volition Beauty | Detoxifying Silt Gelee Mask
Also formulated with kaolin clay, safflower oil, shea butter, jojoba oil, quinoa extract, and plant-derived squalane, the Volition Beauty Detoxifying Silt Gelee Mask has a fairly thin, gel-like consistency and a very subtle citrus scent. The formulation does settle quite a bit so you have to mix it vigorously before application. Volition Beauty recommends applying a generous layer but a little goes a long way with this mask so I would recommend applying a thinner layer, which dries faster as well. The formulation does feel a bit tingly/stingy on the skin but it doesn't cause any sensitivity or redness. The mask sets after about 10 minutes but it doesn't get messy or crumbly. To help with easy removal, two expandable sponge pads are included. The mask washes off fairly easily to reveal a clean, more refined complexion. Overall, this is a really nice clarifying mask that's effective yet gentle. The $79 price tag is definitely hefty but it's worth the splurge if it's within your budget!
