The mask trend is back, it’s been back for months now-or at least the posting of it on social media has. It seems everyone has been busy posting varying pics of the myriad of masks in existence. Which piqued my curiosity to explore some of the ingredients in the (often very expensive) ones I have in my arsenal and acquired as gratis in my department store days. I wasn’t happy with a lot of what I saw.
As a lot of you know, I have varying allergies that span the food and cosmetics spectrums. So by nature, it’s conditioned me to check the ingredients of virtually everything I put in or on my body. And while in the beginning of this ‘awakening’ my eyes quickly spanned to the specific ingredients I react to, they’ve since evolved to include those elements I don’t necessarily react to but that aren’t very healthy for me, as the things I don’t want on my face and body.
So you can imagine how amazed I was to try this TruSelf Organics Detoxifying Mask. More than just the aztec clay I’ve purchased from Whole Foods, it contains a blend 6 different clays, epsom salt and white willow bark extract.

The application: is flawless. Simply mix equal parts of the mask powder with water, apply to face and let sit for up to 30 minutes. When it felt like a natural face lift I washed it off. Your face will be red for a few minutes yet then feel smooth. Once it calmed, I did my skincare regime as usual.
