Caudalie Instant Detox Mask Review

After an unplanned blogging hiatus I’m back with a new skincare favourite!

Aside from the Homemade Chocolate Face Mask I made over Easter, which was really more about finding a way to get more chocolate in my face; I haven’t really used many face masks before.  It’s not that I don’t enjoy them, it’s more being able to make the time to fit them in to my current skincare regime.

Caudalie Instant Detox Mask

I was first introduced to Caudalie as a brand at the Glamour Beauty Festival this year.  I know what you’re thinking, have I been living under a rock?! In a world full of Beauty products you can sometimes get bamboozled by all the products available out there, so finding hidden gems like these can be challenging.

What started off as a love for the Caudalie Micellar Cleansing Water became a journey in to the range and what a discovery! I couldn’t be happier with my latest purchase the Caudalie Instant Detox Face Mask.  (EDIT:  since writing this post many years ago, Caudalie have since changed the packaging but it’s still the same great formula). The sheer opulence of the packaging had me intrigued from the start.  It’s a product I’d be quietly confident having in my toiletry bag ready to expose at the first opportunity (if women’s restrooms were of the same ilk as the men’s).


The texture is creamy and reminds me of my Tarte foundation.  The pink clay based mask dispenses easily and glides effortlessly on to your skin.

Start by applying a thin layer on to your skin and within minutes you will feel your skin tightening.  According to the instructions on the packaging, you can leave the product on your skin for around 10 minutes. For me personally, the product completely dried in to a matte mask after about 11 minutes.

As the product started drying I was horrified at the small dark spots which started appearing.  Fear not, this is where the product is working its magic essentially drawing out the impurities from your pores.  Please forgive the mugshot looking photographs.

Main ingredients and benefits include:
– Pink Clay: sebum absorbing, deep cleansing
– Grape Marc & coffee: anti-oxidant and toxin draining
– Papaya Extract: skin perfector
– Eight Essential Oils: Nourish skin

After a long day at the office and a hideous 2.5 hour commute home, this face mask definitely left my skin feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.  That’s enough detoxing for one night, now where is that glass of wine…

    I received their serum and moisturizer from Sephora for my birthday gift and I have been loving it! Great brand I hadn’t been aware of at first.

    I’ve tried this mask and I love it. Caudalie is pretty popular here in Croatia.
    And great job, I rarely have the opportunity to see this kind of photos where people actually try the products!
