The second to the fifth ingredients are really impressive as they are great for detoxifying and repairing the skin. Kaolin is pretty common in purifying masks because it helps to clear impurities from the skin. I’m also happy to see caprylic/capric triglyceride listed as the third ingredient as it’s great at moisturizing and replenishing the skin while aloe vera, which is listed as the fourth ingredient is packed with vitamins and minerals. Basically this little jar packs a powerful punch to nourish the skin.

Let’s talk about the good, it didn’t irritate my skin and there was no breakouts on the contrary, my skin has been really soft, smooth and supple. I actually noticed huge differences every time I used this mask, my skin is left looking bright and fresh and with continuous use of 3 times a week for the past three weeks, my skin has been in some of its best condition. It also helps to hydrate the areas around my nose that are very prone to dryness, I haven’t seen any flaky skin since adding this mask into my routine.
To the not so good, I hate how messy this mask can be due to the runny texture. Yes, I know that I can scoop the mask into a container but I dislike the extra chore. #lazygirlproblem
Secondly, this mask stings. It didn’t sting as bad as Arbonne SeaSource Detox Sea Mud mask (reviewed here) but the first couple applications hurt. The weird part was my skin wasn’t red when I rinsed off the mask. I thought the stinging meant angry, red skin but nope, only soft, smooth, hydrated and plump skin with zero signs of redness. As I said, weird.
So just how much did I like this mask? It’s definitely one of my favourites so far. It has not taken over my favourite which is Nip+Fab Kale Fix Clay mask (reviewed here) but it sure comes close. Also, if you are someone who is not a fan of clay masks because of the tightening effect when it dries down then you will love this as the effect is minimal.
This has been a really good introduction to Sea Flora and I am already planning to try the Potent Seaweed Serum (check here).
