There's a spa adjacent to my barre class that smells the way a spa should—aromatic and clean, comforting and refined, something like Aveda's classic Shampure scent. Somehow this mask also captures this olfactory impression.
Generally speaking, masks are meant to detoxify, hydrate, or exfoliate. And this one lives up to the acronym in it's name by somehow accomplishing all three. It's not just that the ingredient list boasts Manicouagan clay—said to be extracted from the site of a 215 million year old asteroid crash in Central Quebec—to mop up impurities. Or that it clarifies the skin with willow bark (a natural form of salicylic acid) and tea tree extract. Or its cocktail of alpha hydroxy acid fruit enzymes to slough off dead skin cells and allow the complexion to breath. Or the slew of minerals, sea algae, and oils (grape seed and olive) to feed the skin.
It's that for once, I've found a mask worth its salt. Upon rinse off, the skin is noticeably healthier, taut, and glowing. A high performing workaholic facial in a tube, this is definitely a must-try.
