Here are the key ingredients in this mask & what they do:
Kaolin Clay : The foundation of this mask is Kaolin Clay, a gentle but powerful clay widely known for its detoxifying powers. Kaolin clay minerals draw out skin impurities, improve skin tone, and tighten pores for smoother firmer skin.
Plants Stem Cells, 3% : This French developed constituent naturally decreases the level of pro-aging toxins. This helps to soothe the skin, reduce redness, and improve evenness.
Wakame Bioferment, 2% : One of the only known substances known to tackle aging at the source. Derived from seaweed, a natural youthening ingredient, it delivers potent anti-aging effects, boosting cell efficiency to minimize damage at the cellular level where aging begins.
Vitamin C, 5% : Latest research shows Vitamin C plays a key role in combating exposure to everyday environmental elements like sunlight and air pollution. Vitamin C protects skin for harmful UV rays and neutralizes free radicals to combat fine lines, wrinkles, and improve skin tone and texture.
Matrixyl, 3% : A unique peptide that specifically work by stimulating collaged synthesis and skin repair. This means the protein collagen of skin is increased, giving skin its elasticity.
CoQ10, 1% : Occurring naturally in the human body and responsible for cell production, CoQ10 lessens the appearance of wrinkles by reducing free radical damage and stimulating healthy collagen production.
What it does:
- Draw out skin impurites

How to use it:
1-2 times per week depending on your skin type. Dry skin types use once per week, and oily or acne prone skin types twice per week. Apply a generous amount, about a quarter size amount or enough to cover face completely, making sure to avoid your eye area. Leave on for about 15-20 minutes or until mask dries. Use a damp cloth and warm water to remove the mask. Use circular motions to remove the mask.
What I thought:
My new favorite mask. I loved the smell of it , smelled natural & pleasant. I was expecting it to be thicker but it was on the thinner side. I was also expecting it to be a darker color. Not too thin or watery where its dripping off your face though. I applied it over my face and felt a slight burning sensation but only for a few seconds and it went away. It started to dry but no too tight where it was uncomfortable. I left it on for about 15 minutes. When its dry you can see all the oil from your pores.Yuck!
up close and personal………
Then I took a warm damp cloth and rubbed in circular motions . This right here is why I love this mask, its like a 2 for 1. The natural fibers from the hibiscus & cranberry help exfoliate your skin to slough off dead skin leaving it soft & smooth. When the clay was off my face wasn’t red like with other masks, even with the exfoliating. My skin did look brighter & healthier after using it. I will be adding this to my beauty must haves list. Great way to pamper your skin and yourself.
