I don't know about you, but my skin is not at its best around the festive season. Late nights and excessive...well, excessive everything, can leave it feeling decidedly out of sorts. Luckily I've got a secret weapon with this deep cleansing mask from Liz Earle. Ok, so it doesn't look pretty -- himself calls me the creature from the black lagoon -- but this highly concentrated mask with green-and-white clay, honey and aloe vera works wonders to soothe and clear my skin. Draws out impurities -- so don't use just before a big night out -- while toning and balancing. The product comes with two handy little sponges that make removal a doddle. Sadly I've just used the last of mine (sob!) but, at €15 for 75 ml I'll be re-ordering after my January payday!
