Get Sheet Faced! 6 Natural Facemasks to Try Right Now
A good face mask can do wonders for your skin, but while some go the extra mile - others quite frankly, fall flat - no pun intended. With so much information on clean skincare floating around the web, how does one really decide?
The first clue is on the back of the bottle/jar/tube - the ingredients list - you want to have our list of toxic 'TRASH' ingredients in hand to decode those bottles. The second? Just avoid anything with fragrances (often listed as 'parfum' on the ingredients label) as many can be irritating depending on your skin type.
If all else fails, just ask us before parting with your cash. This alone can save you from wasting $$$ on a formula that doesn't deliver. That's why we've been busy trying, testing, and reviewing some of the best natural face masks - really because we like to, and honestly, so you don't have to!
So thousands of people swear by this product for making their skin look the best it has ever looked. We're just the thousandth and one!
What's interesting is that the mask starts off as a dry powder, and then you add water and apple cider vinegar to turn it into a paste, and smooth over your skin. You'll notice that when you add the apple cider vinegar to the dry clay, it begins to bubble and foam, and may tingle when you apply it. Trust me, this is normal! How can I sing its praises? Let me count the ways - this mask refreshes your skin, deeply cleans your pores, reduces acne, helps with dark spots, helps absorb extra grease in the skin - buh bye breakouts! and should I go on?
What I also really love this product is that it is only made with one single, pure, and natural ingredient – bentonite clay. That it! No other ingredients, no other fillers, no fragrances, no dyes, literally nothing else! It cannot get and cleaner and purer than that.
Second on our list is Shea Moisture's African Black Soap Facial Mask which we found both affordable and functional. What we love about this mask is it's deep cleanse, and how it's literally able to draw out impurities, and thats not all. It absorbs excess oil, and targets acne-prone skin.

What we loved about this facemask from White & Elm was its rich pineapple and papaya juices - just kidding! but that was totally a plus :-) It not only exfoliates dead and dull skin on your face, it also tightens pores, lightens dark spots and evens out skin tone. I would recommend it if you suffer from acne or have suffered from acne and now have dark hyperpigmentation all over your face.
Two words, functional and affordable. I'm not sure what I love more, that this product does what it says it does, or that it does it for $11! If you don't like it, we promise to say 'Glycolique' in a french accent :D
No, you're not seeing things. We did oggle over this product in our product crush for the month of April and still feel the same! To make your sheet, mix a palmful with a small amount of water to form a smooth paste. Apply to face, and neck, carefully avoiding your eye area. Allow mask to dry, then gently remove with warm water, followed by a cool water rinse. We recommend you use RITUAL at least once a week for a deep clean, and to begin to see the radiance in your skin.
