Title says it all really, despite being too old for 'teenage' skin, I still get hormonal breakouts and greasy skin.

I used to use T-Zone tea tree clay mask, but it appears to have been discontinued and all the other clay type masks I've tried have been too much for my sensitive skin, leaving it red and a bit blotchy for hours afterwards . Trying all these products is costing me a small fortune and I'm totally wasting it, as stuff gets used once and then never again. I'm prepared to spend up to £30 on a good quality mask for my skin type, please help !

I do as much of the healthy diet stuff as I can bear, and I only drink water (with the odd glass of wine), so please don't tell me that I need to change my lifestyle.

Gawd, I sound irresistable, don't I ?!

I like Clarins stuff, Marina. Will try to wangle a sample from my local counter.

Nuxe do a really nice face mask that is very calming and cleansing
You can get it at Selfridges and the boots shop pure beauty if they still exist

A helpful suggestion there from the naturally gorgeous pole-dancing siren mod

Don't know about face mask but dermalogica daily microfoliant really worked for me - it took about two months before it made a consistent difference. I use it once a day together with the moisturiser for oily skin and my skin is much, much better. Only buy the stuff on e-bay as shop prices are ridiculously high.

sorry, just noticed that you already mentioned dermalogica stuff.

Have bought the dermalogica anti-bac face mask, got at for £19.66 from a discount dermalogica website (20% off regular prices). Considering I found the same product for £27.99 on another site, I think I got a bit of a bargain

Lou - Will bear that in mind....
