Photo 2018-11-05, 9 23 14 PM.jpg

This facial clay mask is a gentle and detoxifying pink clay facial mask. This blend is meant to draw out toxins without over drying the skin and is suitable for all skin types. All you have to do is mix with water to create a paste. You can use as exfoliation mask as well.

Ingredients listed below:

100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | French white and pink clay, rosehip powder, ground comfrey root, and organic rose geranium essential oil

Handmade in Pueblo, Colorado, USA

CLOSE UP OF THE MASK:

My thoughts:

At first I accidentally added a little bit too much water so it what is meant to be a paste was runny. However, it still worked wonders. Upon removing the mask the FIRS TIME I USED IT, after 15 minutes, my skin felt great. It felt cleaner, felt detoxified, however, after proceeding with my skincare regime the mask made my skin red and slightly itchy. The redness and itchy feeling was only in my forehead and around the corners of my nose. Which are areas I tend to have problems in. The second time I used it, my skin became accustomed to this new product, and it was less problematic as the first time. Overall, as it says it is gentle, it is a clay mask. For those that are EXTREMELY SENSITIVE, I suggest spot treatments to test before you use. My mother and sister joined in on this mask and they had the same results as me. So please, know your skin and use it accordingly! Definitely use it from the minimum required time 10 minutes or less!

The product provided in this beauty box allowed for a weeks use and in this week it not only hydrated around my eyes, but it visibly brightened the eye area. I do not have any under eye puffiness, fatigue or appearance of lines, but only dark under eyes and this helped to lighten the area. I would purchase this product again to see if my under eye would brightened.

My thoughts: I generally do not use blotting sheets for someone who has an oily t-zone. These blotting sheets did disturb or cause any streaks in my makeup. I have provided a photo on a day where I was not as oily for you. The sheets provides a mood lifting aromatherapy! In other words, there is a faint aromatic smell to it! I love that this product is meant to unclog pores and lift dirt from the skin. It is not necessary to use this when you have makeup, you can use this whenever you want!

The packaging is also very thin and small, easy to carry with you everywhere.

That’s all!

I had a great time discovering all of these new cruelty free brands and products. Thank you so much to Petit Vour for providing such an amazing platform! Stay tuned for my next Petit Vour box! I can’t wait to discover more!
