Review: Clark's Botanicals Intense Radiance Mask

I'd never heard of Clark's Botanicals until I was introduced to the brand at a recent Space NK event.  Founded by father-and-son team Harold and Francesco Clark, it uses botanically based formulas and has grown from a couple of products designed to address an individual's needs to one which has been popular enough with consumers to launch in select retail locations such as Space NK.

The Intense Radiance Mask is a white clay based affair which claims to revitalise the skin, adding smoothness and luminosity.  Unlike other radiance masks I've tried in the past, it's a bit of a slow burner - it needs to be left on the skin for 20 to 30 minutes to work its magic.

Having tried it a couple of times now, I'm not particularly convinced.  Granted, after half an hour of wandering around the house, my skin does look smoother and a little more clear, but it's not a particularly noticeable change.  Certainly not as impressive as the Liz Earle brightening mask I tried and still love - and the Liz Earle version only takes a few minutes to work.

At £58 a pot, I expect miracles.  Unfortunately, this mask doesn't really deliver.  It's a nice weekly treat and I do feel it gives my skin a good deep clean and a bit of extra glow, but it needs to give a more noticeable effect to match that pricetag.  Find it at Space NK if you're curious to try it for yourself.
