Today's review will be a little more special than normal. Why?
|Cute little pink box filled with love|
Yep, I was surprised by this little cute pink box in my room when I got home from school. Want to know what's inside? Yes? Yes? (Oh noes...I gave out the hint in my title U.U stupid stupid me). Oh well, pretend to be surprised, and say YES!
Ah! Can you see the love inside that box? My heart is beating so fast and hard! Let's go! Open it up with me! Let's see what hides inside those beautiful shiny white papers!
|The Organic Rose Lavender Clay Face Mask & Scrub|
Here comes the information!
Product Description: This Rose Lavender Face Mask and Scrub doubles as both a deep and purifying face mask and also as a gentle exfoliant.
Directions: To use, take out the amount desired, massage between palms to warm, add a small amount of warm water to form a cleansing paste.
With your fingers, smooth the mixture in circular motions and focus on problem areas. Scrub gently! The Organic Rose Petals and Organic Sugar will serve as gentle exfoliants and will remove dead skin cells. Leave on for a minute and then rinse with warm water. Follow with a serum, moisturizer or facial spray to seal in moisture.
For a mask
Apply mixture on dampened or dry face (depends on preference) and spread evenly. This mixture is build-able and if you seek a super intense deep treatment, then please feel free to cover your entire face with this mask until you feel it start to dry. Leave on up to 30 minutes and rinse with warm water. Follow with a serum, moisturizer or facial spray to seal in moisture. (When used as a mask, it is recommended to use only 1-2 times a week)

My thoughts: Before starting, I would like to say that this product was gifted to me through a giveaway. However, my opinion will definitely not be biased because I received this for free. I will still be providing my most honest opinion.
As soon as I opened my package, I felt so much love, so I absolutely had to share the love given by Britanie with my dear readers. As you guys might have noticed, I even edited the picture for this special occasion, hihi.
I tried this product as a cleanser, scrub + mask.
Sadly, this did not work quite well as a cleanser for me. The reason for this is because it’s a little bit harsh. I normally like to go over my eyes while cleansing, but because of the harshness of this product, it will not be good to clean the eye area. It is also quite hard to remove the make ups with this product. It exfoliates really well, but doesn’t really remove the make ups. If you want to remove the makeup, you’d have to massage the product in your face, but again, due to the harshness of the product, it would not be a good idea. (Keep in mind that this product is a scrub & mask. Not really a cleanser. But it was an option, so I decided to try it).
As a scrub, it worked amazingly. To tell the truth, I have never scrubbed my face before, and my face definitely felt amazing after scrubbing. I felt refreshed, clean, and moisturized. How did I not try this earlier?! Normally, after scrubbing, the skin would feel dry, but because of the Apricot Kernel Oil added in the product, your face actually feel…I won’t say oily, but moisturized. You definitely feel the oil working up on your face. You might feel oily in the first couple of seconds. But after a while, it disappears (more like it settled into your skin).
|Me with mask on!|
The mask is amazing (Hope you guys don't mind my ugly tongue sticking out...)! It helped me calm down some of my breakouts. My face also feels super soft & smooth after washing off the mask. Oh! And how can I not mention the amazing smell this product has? It smells like a garden filled with flowers (rose + lavender)! There’s also a slight smell of the Apricot Oil as well as the Green Clay.
In all the good products, there’s always a little bad side. I found it pretty messy. The rose petals were a little bit too big, and each time I tried applying the mask, the rose petals would fall everywhere! Some sizes are good, but most of the petals just fall…and I can’t stick them back on the mask =(.
Overall, this is an amazing product. It is very moisturizing, refreshing, and acne friendly. It also made my face super smooth and soft. One big mistake I did was that I used this product in three consecutive days when I first received it. This dried my face, and gave me cuts. So definitely be careful when using this product. The reason for this, apparently, is because of the French Green Clay, which is good for oily & combination skin. It seems that this clay is a little bit harsh and it can dry out skins if used too often. So remember to only use this product once a week (or twice)! Britanie said that she would reformulate the same product with different clays depending on the skin type. Definitely check those out when it comes out!
