A few days ago I visited Urban Outfitters and noticed they had a new skincare table- naturally I walked over to the table with my basic Starbucks in hand. The Fig & Yarrow Green mask caught my attention because it's designed for all skin types and helps reduce inflammation & prevent breakouts. Personally I have combination skin so I thought I'd give this a go!
Ingredients: French green clay, lavender flowers, essential oils.
How to use: Pinch your desired amount of product out of the jar, then mix it with either water, honey, or olive oil. Apply the clay to your face and let it sit for about ten minutes (or until it hardens). Lastly, wash off with warm water and pat dry.
Effects: The mask has natural exfoliating ingredients which made my skin soft & gave it a nice cleanse. Since the jar contains a small amount of product, I applied the mask just to my nose and t-zone.
Frequency: 2-3x per week.
All in all I think this mask is a great alternative when I'm not in the mood to use a cold fresh face mask. Lately I've had such a shitty diet with finals and prepping for my move to Chicago; I've taken stress eating to a NEW level. You can either visit Urban, another skincare shop, or purchase your mask here: http://figandyarrow.com/collections/facialprotocol/products/clay-masks
