    Hi! I'm Isabel and I love testing skincare products.

    Pore strips? Blackhead vacuums? Serums? I love 'em all.

    So when Bobbi Brown sent me their Instant Detox face mask that claims to "diminish toxins and impurities from pores", I knew I had to put it to the test.

    Full disclosure, I was sent it for free but was under no obligation to write about it or give a positive review.

    According to the product description, the Instant Detox mask claims to minimise the appearance of pores due to its blend of Hawaiian Sea Water and mineral-rich Amazonian White Clay. Let's put it to the test!"

    First of all, the mask spread super easily so I only had to use a smidge. Think about the amount of toothpaste you squeeze out when you brush your teeth – that's how much of the face mask you need to cover your nose and forehead.

    Per its instructions, I made sure my skin was damp before applying the mask. I often find that clay masks can be either too oily or too chunky, so I was pleasantly surprised to find that this mask was neither!

    The mask dried in about three minutes, which means that it would be very easy to incorporate into my morning routine.

    Good skincare makes your life easier, so I love a time-efficient product. Also please ignore my very chapped lips, I didn't realise how bad they were until AFTER I took all these photos.

    As the mask dries out, you get these gross but satisfying dark spots over your pores.

    You can see all the oily spots, it's so weird.

    The mask washes off easily with warm water. Afterwards, my skin felt so smooth and clean that I had to resist the urge to touch my face all afternoon.

    Here are some close-up photos of my nose before and after the mask. I think the difference is pretty noticeable! My pores definitely looked and felt a lot cleaner after the mask.

    The clean feeling and appearance lasted throughout the whole day! Also, sincere apologies for the very zoomed-in pictures of my nose. It's surprisingly hard to take a close-up picture of your own face.

    I'm now officially obsessed with the Bobbi Brown Instant Detox mask. It's quick, effective, and a little goes a long way. Overall, this mask is a great investment!
