I can’t believe it’s almost the end of September already. Truth to be told, I’m one of those people who actually enjoys Fall. Maybe it’s the fresh start, or the cool crisp air, colourful leaves on the ground, and sunny afternoons… but it reminds me of when my own school days.
And now, my eldest is in full-day school… so every morning and afternoon, I get to walk with him to school and enjoy the beauty that is Fall.
Speaking of fresh starts, Modern Hippie sent me the Charcoal Face Mask with Green Tea Extract and Bentonite Clay to try!
Upon first inspection, the Charcoal Face Mask jar was spewing a little liquid, but I easily wiped it off with a paper towel. Knowing that it contained activated charcoal, I carefully opened the jar and was met with a black thick clay-like paste. I used one of those small plastic spoons to scoop up a small amount to spread it over my face. Let it dry for 20 minutes, and rinsed off with water.
I felt the pores on my face were tightened while the mask was on, and after washing it off, my face was clean and refreshed. Then I followed it up with Modern Hippie’s Hydrating Facial Toner. I like how the mask contains green tea extract, which is an antioxidant, as well as the activated charcoal which helps to smooth out the skin and detoxify it.
Other ingredients in the face mask include French Green clay as well as witch hazel, peppermint oil and bergamot oil. My face definitely tends towards the oily spectrum, so I’m looking forward to using this in my skin routine.
