Estée Lauder Nutritious Mask

See the sort of 'yin-yang' design inside this mask?  What's all that about, then? Well, it's actually a rather clever mask.  We know from reader feedback that almost 40% of you have combination skins - which means seeking out (and using) two different products:  one for the cheeks, one for the T-zone.  This combines two treatments in one.

It's actually designed to be used as a 'two-step' programme:  first the detoxifying clay mask, then the 'nutrient-infusing gel mask'.  What we prefer to do is apply the skin-smoothing clay to the nose, chin and forehead, and then the more nourishing, luscious gel to the cheeks.  (Who, really, has time for two masks?)

In just five minutes, skin is clearer, plumper and generally brightened.

Note to beauty companies:  many more products for the hordes of combination-skinned women would suit them to a T.  Or rather, a T-Zone...
