I have skin that is somewhere between combination and REALLY OILY - seems to depend on the day. The oils cause some strange acne on my forehead and chin and have tried many other charcoal masks from bigger brands (L'oreal, Garnier, etc.) that apparently were amazing. They completely stripped my skin and left me worse off.
I had been given Northlore bath products as gifts before and knew I could trust the ingredients of this mask to be high quality and kind to my skin. After three weeks of use (2 times a week), I have been SO pleased with my skin. After the first use, I was so amazed at how soft my skin still felt compared to other charcoal masks that left my skin dehydrated. I could not be happier with this purchase.
This product has become part of my self care routine that I crave. It brings impurities to the surface - yay clean pores and it soothes my skin when it feels irritated and inflamed.
Honestly, I've never really been one for face masks, but I've really grown to love the Plains Mud Mask. I enjoy how the ritual of the prep, application, and removal demands intentionality and patience.
It leaves my skin feeling soft and cleansed and my spirit refreshed and renewed.
I love the whole process of this face mask – scooping it out into a little bowl, carefully mixing it all together, painting it onto my face, watching it dry and harden, and scrubbing it off in the shower or after a bath. It's a ritual that helps me settle in after a long week.
I've been using this product for about a year now, and use it at least once every two weeks. Not one of my best qualities, but I'm always picking at my face if I have acne when I'm stressed or anxious, which has resulted in some scars. The mask along with the Rosehip Facial Oil has made those pretty much disappear and I've seen a significant reduction in the number of blackheads around my nose and chin.
