I was really surprised when I opened this face mask- it comes in dry powder form instead of a wet paste. The instructions tell you to mix a teaspoon of the powder with water until you get a thick paste. I only used half a teaspoon and it was perfectly ample to cover my face. I have to say, it was a bit of a hassle opening the jar and tidying up the powder that spills out etc. A ready-made mask is much easier and quicker to use. However, the results of this mask are great; so it is worth taking the extra time and trouble for.
The Antioxidant Facial Mask is designed to detoxify, tone and exfoliate your skin. I found my skin to be much smoother immediately after use, and the next morning it was a lot firmer and still just as smooth. I also felt that it evened out my complexion and remove my dark circles- now, i’m not a scientist; but perhaps that was part of the detoxification process?
The mask itself looks like powdered charcoal, and when mixed with water it smells very earthy- not unpleasant, just a raw natural muddy scent. It takes around 10-15 minutes to dry, and it quite easy to remove with a cloth. Lastly, pop some moisturiser on afterwards to maximise the benefits.
Everything in the mask (and their whole range) is 100% natural and plant-based. It felt nice to have something good on my skin.
The Freshness of Morning Antioxidant Facial Mask is available for £18 from fomcosmetics.co.uk. They also have a great muslin cloth (£4.50) which makes removing it very easy.
