HERBIVORE BLUE TANSY AHA+BHA RESURFACING CLARITY MASK
October 24, 2016
When it comes to exfoliation, I am very biased to enzyme exfoliators. Enzymes break down, detach and digest only dead cells on the surface leaving your skin radiant. All skin types can use it even the most sensitive types can use this option and achieve results. The most popular enzymes are derived from natural sources like pineapple, rice and papaya.
Herbivore blue tansy resurfacing clarity mask is a great enzyme mask formulated with organic papaya, organic pineapple enzyme which are AHA and white willow bark a BHA. It is balanced out by aloe leaf juice and blue tansy which soothes the skin and delivering an effective yet gentle result.

HOW TO USE IT
I cleanse my skin with a mild cleanser like an oil balm or a water based cleanser, Then I pay my skin dry.
I use about three scoops of the mask with the spatula included in the box and apply a thin layer to clean skin. The first time I used it, I left it on for a minimum 15mins. it gives a tingling feeling on the skin which is normal for most enzymes. It may feel intense the first 5mins but the intensity reduces and the tingling subsides.
Wait till mask is dry then gently remove mask with warm water and a washcloth making sure not to pull on the skin.
Pat dry and apply my treatments and appropriate moisturizer
They recommend you use the mask for the first five days using every other day and afterwards twice a week. I followed this tip and loved the results. I would recommend that sensitive skin types to build up your time from 15mins to 20mins during the first five days

it comes in a glass jar and a screw on top. Included in the pack is a spatula that could be used to scoop the clarifying mask that would be applied on the skin
The mask is great for my sensitive skin. It gets rid of the dead skin without being abrasive
It leaves my skin supple and smooth
The first three days of using it I noticed my skin looked and felt hydrated
My daily schedule can be hectic and this was convenient for me to use. Once you applied it to your face, you can leave it on and attend to other chores.
This exfoliant is great for acne. I had a couple spots last week and I noticed a drastic difference when I used it.
The mask is really runny so it can get a little messy when you are trying to apply it.
