Yuli Pure Mask

 Yuli PureYuli Pure Treatment Mask

You may have noticed that I featured Yuli Skincare quite often for the past few weeks, and you know what? It will probably happen more in the future. Before I tried any of their products, I read several glorious reviews for their products and noticed that even the most selective people in the green beauty community gave Yuli their stamp of approval. Among the reasons for their popularity are the purity of the ingredients, wisely and sustainably packaged products, and most importantly–the results.

In my last post I told you that I started to use the Pure Treatment Mask and I do not think that I have ever used this word before on this blog, but I am slightly “obsessed” with it. To the point that I anxiously wait for those 4-5 days to pass (can’t wait a whole week, no!) so I can use it again. I would like to use it more often because I like the way my skin looks afterwards, but since my skin is very sensitive in certain areas of my face, I think that it is better not to over-do.

The mask comes in powder form, has an earthy yellow color and a very delicate, almost undetectable, flowery scent. The powder form, which allows the formula to be preservative-free, requires to be mixed with water. When in contact with water, the mask becomes active. Some people like to mix it with yogurt and/or honey, but I do love it just the way it is when mixed with water, (I am a fuss-free type of gal, so the easier = the better). In case you wanted to see a creepy photo of me wearing it, feel free (at your own risk and with no kids around) to see it here.

I mix about a tablespoon of powder with the same amount of water with a flat foundation brush until it becomes smooth. Next I apply the mixture with the same brush. I keep it on for about 10-15 minutes and then rinse it off with lukewarm water.

As far as quick, visible results, I find that this mask “awakens” my complexion. It feels like it stimulates my skin, yet it is not harsh. Other than the immediate stimulating effect, I have noticed that my blemishes start to heal shortly after the treatment. The last time that I used it was two days ago, when I had a few whiteheads and a full-blown, nasty blemish on my chin (my chin kindly informs me when it’s PMS time). After I rinsed off the mask the big blemish turned into a red spot and became almost invisible the following day.

Following is the full list of ingredients:

rhassoul clay^^, vigna radiata (mung bean) powder*, australian beige clay^^, powered rosa damascena (rose) petals*, french green clay^^, oryza sativa (rice) powder*, zeolite^^, boswellia frereana (frankincense) resin^^, salix alba (white willow bark) powder*, azadirachta indica (neem) leaf powder*, biodynamic fruit enzymes, cucumis sativus (cucumber) extract*, milk powder*, msm, biophotonically charged matcha*, magnesium. *Certified Organic ^^Wildcrafted
This product is gluten-free. NOT vegan, contains MILK.

After I wrote about how this mask stimulates my skin, I actually read that it is meant to be a collagen-stimulating mask (you can find it in the description of the product). The formula includes a four wildcrafted detoxifying clays including zeolite, which some people take  internally to detoxify the body; some anti-inflammatory and damage repairing ingredients (hence the quick healing of my blemish) like the Mung Bean Powder and the biophotonically charged Matcha (source of powerful antioxidants); fruit enzymes to gently exfoliate (without physical scrubbing).

I am now waiting to see if using this mask in combination with another Yuli product that I recently ordered is going to help with lightening my pigmentation. I would love if my skin could look more even in tone and I will definitely write an update later on. In the meanwhile, I am enjoying the rejuvenating and healing results that I am experiencing, and I look forward to seeing more benefits from using this mask.

Available at the official Yuli Skincare store.

  • This sounds amazing! I tried the Dr Alkaitis face masks which also come as a loose powder and just felt like it was too much hassle but maybe I should think again Yuli… The brands definitely caught my attention xx

    • Hi! A powder is definitely less quick than a creamy mask, but there are some benefits to it: suited for traveling, lasts longer…
      I think that Yuli Pure is worth trying! Please let me know what you think if you do give it a try! xx

  • Laura

    Lovely! Glad you are a fan. I love this mask too and have been using it since it launched (over a year ago). As my skin is on the drier and sensitive side, I activate it with water and then add honey/yoghurt/a drop of oil/serum. I love that i can adjust depending on my skin’s need. (I do get hormonal breakouts) X

    • Hi Laura, I get a few hormonal breakouts too, and this mask has been helping a lot with clearing them out. I am so thrilled I started to use Yuli! I have ordered a serum, and I can’t wait to try it! Hint: one of the serums you love ;) x

  • Sounds great, I haven’t heard of the brand before but will definitely be investigating :) x

    • Hi Tania, please let me do if you try anything from Yuli. I am so impressed with everything I tried, and my skin is so difficult to please! Thanks for your comment :) x

  • Mademoiselle nature

    Nice review miss! I love Yuli skincare and about to start using their toner. This brand has great products….bit pricey though :-)
    x

    • Thanks love, and please let me know how you like the toner! They are definitely a luxury brand, but so much quality for the money! :)

  • Very interesting! I’m really into the idea of buying masks in powder form — often times my products expire before I get to finish them and I think this way they have a longer shelf life. This mask is also less expensive than the May Lindstrom Problem Solver one I covet so much. I think I might just try a sample!

    • Hi Christine, I was just reading another comment by Lindy, and she has half jar left after three months of use. I have not had it for that long, but that sounds pretty amazing!
      I think that it is totally worth trying, and please let me know your thoughts if you do try it! :)

  • Lindy

    After a bad experience with powder masks (Dr. Alkaitis Universal Mask didn’t do much while May Lindstrom Problem Solver burned my skin), I had stuck to “normal masks”. But Pure is remarkable in that it was gentle but also got me a lot of results. I can feel my skin uplifted after each use. This one definitely is a game changer. And yes on the price, $65 for the powder lasts so much longer than similarly priced masks for similar sizes. I still have over half of the jar to go after using for 3 months.

    • Hi Lindy, glad to hear this mask has worked for you, too! And wow, still half jar left after three months! That’s great :)

  • Mia

    Can I just say I love that this company is green but uses a lot of technology.. I had to check biophotonics and chiral and all of that and I’m stunned how wonderful the ingredients they use are!

    • Hi Mia, I totally agree with you. I did the same thing and had the same reaction! Such an amazing use of technology. Yun, a co-founder of Yuli, is actually a chemist by profession, so she definitely knows her stuff! It makes me feel even better about using their products, because I know that they have been carefully tested.

  • Kelly

    The mask sounds so lovely! I’m a recent fan of theirs, they have the best serums. Ingredients are so amazing, my dream green company.

  • Pure mask rocks! I’m using it tonight … dealing with some hormonal breakouts on my chin, ugh. Glad you are loving it! I’m making my way through the rest of the line … ME Skin Fuel and Harmony are next on my list.

  • Oh yes it sounds like something I definitely need!<3 x

  • tianna

    this sounds lovely! I keep hearing about Yuli and I think I’ll have to try them soon!

  • This sounds so good! People have been talking about Yuli nonstop lately, going to have to try some of their products!

    Hi Lilly, Many thanks for your review. It certainly sounds like a great buy! I’m also starting to look at Yuli products – they look amazing if quite expensive ;-(. I’m writing because i would really like to hear your thoughts a few weeks down the line now: has using the mask helped with your pigmentation? I have this problem of pigmentation – whihc has gotten worse after the summer. And i’m thinking of getting the mask, or perhaps their Cell Perfecto elixir (although not sure whether this can be used for the whole face). Thanks for any more feedback on that!

  • Hi Veronica, yes! This mask contains EGCG , Polyphenols, & Resveratrol, which are powerful antioxidants; Vitamin E, which softens wrinkles, and minerals (magnesium, potassium and zinc). It also contains fruit enzymes to gently exfoliate and brighten the skin. I highly recommend trying it, especially mixed with raw manuka honey. Let me know your thoughts if you give it a try! :)
