Belif Peat Miracle Revital Clay Mask is a wash-off clay mask, formulated with 5% peat particles, which gently resurfaces skin and tightens the look of pores for a smooth complexion.
According to The Klog, peat is a substance that comes from moors, bogs and old glaciers from around the world. It’s comprised of dead, decomposed plant residue, making it rich in minerals and antioxidants and, as such, it is considered a powerful anti-aging ingredient.
Created using one of the purest forms of peat particles—and Napier’s apothecary herb formulas—this mask gently resurfaces the skin and tightens the look of sagging pores. Korean skincare technology meets ancient skincare secrets for a clay mask that leaves pores looking tighter and skin feeling smooth and luminous.
After cleansing once or twice a week, prep the skin with toner, then take an appropriate amount and spread it over the entire face avoiding the mouth and eyes. After about 10 minutes (5 to 7 minutes in case of dry skin), rinse with warm water and lightly finish with cold water.
50 ml of clay mask came in a sturdy plastic squat jar with Belif’s signature packaging shape where the screw-top black lid is slightly narrower that the rest of the body.
I appreciate the inclusion of an inner lid to further prevent air from getting in and speeding up the oxidization process. It even comes with a tiny tab for ease of removal!
Upon removing the inner lid, I was greeted with Belif’s signature herbal scent. It is one of the more pleasant smelling herbal scents with notes of ginger. I wish they made the scent into a fragrance, I’d totally throw my money at it.
Unlike most products that come in a jar, this did not come with a spatula. I had to use one of my own. No complaints on my part because being a product junkie means having a separate drawer of spatulas ranging in all shapes and sizes.
The picture above shows the amount I use in a single treatment. This is enough to evenly coat my entire face I spread this on my face with a mask brush. A little goes a long way, which works for my wallet.
The beige-gray clay mask is buttery smooth and made application such a breeze. There was absolutely no pulling or tugging at the skin. I noticed some tiny black bits suspended in the clay mask, I’m guessing these are the peat particles. They are small enough and do not provide any scrubbing effect whatsoever.
My skin is feeling slightly dry today. I’m also sporting a couple of inflamed white heads on my left cheek. I’ve cleansed and toned my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
Unlike most clay masks, this was super gentle on my skin. I’ve tried applying a thin and a thick layer, both times did not give me any tingling or stinging sensation. To prevent it from sucking all the moisture out of my skin, I waited only 10 mins before proceeding to rinse it off. Even then, there was already a tightening sensation.
The clay mask softened and emulsified upon first contact with water. This made rinsing off really easy, no vigorous rubbing or flooding the entire bathroom counter.
My skin felt surprisingly hydrated, more so than after my regular cleanser. Pores were also looking smaller and cleaner. Skin felt amazingly smooth and soft with no sign of redness. I also noticed my skin being more balanced producing less oil around my nose and chin areas on days when I use this.
Below is a side by side of the before and after pictures.
I highly recommend this to sensitive skin or dry skin types who need a little spring cleaning but have not found a mild enough clay mask to do so. I’ll admit that the pore clearing efficacy of this mask may not be comparable to a stronger one like Kiehl’s Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque or Innisfree’s Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask, but I’ll still pick Belif Peat Miracle Revital Clay Mask any day because of the lack of irritation.
