I decided to give the Acure Organics Cell Stimulating Facial Mask* a try, in light of the several positive reviews I had read. The main ingredient that drew my attention was french green clay. It is know to absorb oil and impurities from the skin and even tighten pores. According to Acure Organics the mask repairs the skin cells and revitalizes the complexion.
The consistency is pasty, thick (not runny), and easy to spread. It smells like spearmint, and feels refreshing on the skin as soon as I apply it. It dries very quickly, and it should be kept on the face for about 10-15 minutes. I sometimes keep it on a little longer, but it does not cause any discomfort. It requires a little bit of effort in taking it off, because it is supposed to be rinsed off like a cleanser. Therefore, I massage it into my skin very well, and rinse my face until it is completely gone. I like to use this mask one or two times a week, in the morning, in the place of my cleanser.
Ingredients: Organic euterpe oleracea (acai) berry, organic rubus fruticosus (blackberry), organic rosa canina (rosehips), organic punica granatum (pomegranate), organic fair trade certified rooibos, organic aloe barbadensis vera leaf, french green clay, vegetable glycerin, sodium methyl cocoyl taurate (from coconut + amino acids), vegetable cellulose gum, sodium cocoyl isethionate (from coconut), chlorophyll, organic chlorella pyrenoidosa extract (chlorella growth factor), glucono delta lactone (sugar enzyme), fair trade certified organic theobroma cacao (cocoa) butter, carrageenan (algae), hippophae rhamnoides (sea buckthorn) seed oil, ubiquinone (CoQ10), spinosa (argan) stem cell, potassium sorbate (food grade preservative), organic argania spinosa (argan) oil, and sage and spearmint essential oil blend.
Even though I am not a mask junkie, I do enjoy this refreshing treatment once or twice a week. My skin looks and feels particularly clean and refreshed every time I use it. I think that it would work on any skin type, and it is also claims to be:
- Sulfate free

- Phthalate free
- Silicone free
I recommend you try it if you are looking for a mask to deep cleanse your face. And you will definitely want it if you enjoy minty scents! As usual, Acure Organics has provided another great product filled with the purest ingredients, at an affordable price.
