Hurry up, grab a pen, and write down O-S-M-I-A O-R-G-A-N-I-C-S, it’s a name your going to want to remember. Osmia Organics is a skin care brand that is hand-crafted using all natural and organic ingredients. The founder, Sarah Villafranco traded in her career in emergency medicine to start-up Osmia and we are ever so grateful! The brand is quickly becoming a personal favorite, so do expect to be reading much more about their products here.
Today I’m very excited to talk to you about one of my absolute favorite products from the line. It is not only a favorite from the line, but one of my all-time favorite skin care products. I realize that is a big claim, but this mask is a game-changer. This one product alone has changed the way I view facial masks and the incredible impact they can actually have on your skin. Since introducing the Detox Exfoliating Mask into my skin care routine, I have actually stopped seeing my facialist regularly.
I’ve mentioned the Detox Mask before in a review post I did, along with Protein Exfoliating Mask (another gem that I will talk about at another time). Since writing that post, I have since purchased a full-sized product and am on my way to purchasing my second. I wanted to write about the Detox Mask again in its own post, giving it the love and raves it deserves.
The Detox Exfoliating Mask is a multitasking powdered mask/exfoliator. It works to deeply cleanse pores, as well as to provide both a chemical and physical exfoliation. Its composed of three kinds of purifying clays and also includes raw cacoa, manuka honey, and activated charcoal. The mask comes along with a small ceramic bowl and spatula where you mix the powder along with water to create a paste. Its actually quite fun mixing up the ingredients, playing chemist for a moment. Another recommendation is to mix the powder along with Manuka Honey for extra little kick.
As the Detox Mask works its magic, you will feel some tingling as it tightens. If a tightening mask isn’t your thing, it is suggested that you re-moisten the mask as it starts to harden. So, as the mask begins to tighten you will see the spots on your face where the mask has pulled all the funk and gunk from your pores, a very satisfying visual. I personally struggled with blackheads along with large pores. Since using this mask they have almost all disappeared, while pores appear smaller.
After the mask is removed my skin feels incredible clean, plumped, radiant and glowing. It won’t leave your skin feeling dry, but quite the opposite. Any previous dryness and visually lackluster skin is renewed. I feel like I have a new face and look like I just had the best facial of my life. The Detox Exfoliating Mask has become a staple product in my routine. I recommend to everyone and anyone any chance I get.
