My face is red. I don’t have eczema, but my face is naturally rosy as a result of just dealing day to day with the elements. I used to hate it when I was younger, but now I’ve come to terms with my rosyness. When I was younger, I didn’t really know much about skincare so my face took the brunt of my lack of knowledge.
Turns out it was my fault that my face was extremely red. I used to not moisturize properly, which blows my mind now. I distinctly remember my face being so dry one day, and I had no idea what to do! I didn’t own a facial moisturizer, so out of desperation I slathered some heavily scented body lotion from Victoria’s Secret. It stung! After this I started doing some research. 🙂
The researching hasn’t stopped, obviously! A few months ago, I received an awesome sample of body cream from Shea Terra Organics. It had a lovely vanilla scent and I totally fell in love. After reading some reviews online, I took advantage of the monthly discounts offered by Shea Terra and placed my own order. 😉
The first thing I set my eyes on was the Ghassool L’eau De Fleur D’oranger Purifying Paste. I love clay masks, and I regularly use them to address my redness problem. My face always seems so much brighter when I use them. This clay mask comes with 9oz of product for $24. With the August promotion, the cost came to $17. Not bad!
This clay is really thick and has a pretty strong smell of orange blossom water. They also carry a rose water clay, which I had originally wanted, but it wouldn’t add to my cart for some reason on the website so I settled for this one. I love the smell of rose water though, so I bet the other one is amazing!
The directions say to apply the mask for ten minutes or until semi-dry and then rinse off. It was a little difficult to get off at first. The next time I used it I patted water on the clay to make it a little more pliable and let it sit for a minute before rinsing it off.
And voila! My face was noticebly brighter and soo soft! I love that baby soft feeling after a good clay mask. The best effect was the brightness though. My complexion had been so dull before and I was beaming afterwards! I was really impressed.
Have you used any of the clay masks from Shea Terra Organics? How did you like it?
