Mask Mixologist: Osmia Detox Exfoliating Mask

I probably scared young children and gave you nightmares last time I posted about a clay mask (click here to revisit my review of the Aztec Clay Mask #neverforget), so it's time I do it again!


This time, I snatched my sample of the Osmia Organics Detox Exfoliating Mask and off I went. When you buy this mask, you get a bottle of black powder: clay, charcoal, cacao powder and manuka honey - all wonderful ingredients with anti-inflammatory, purifying and healing properties. It also comes with its very own little bowl and spatula for mixing. Since I was working with a sample, I had my own tools at the ready:


I mixed equal parts powder with water (around 2/2.5 teaspoons) and applied it with my fingers. The consistency was nice and light albeit you can use less water if you want a thicker mask.


It differs slightly from other clay mask I have tried in that it also contains small "exfoliating" grains in it. They are very fine and gentle, reminding me of the MAC Microfine Pore Refinisher, if anyone remembers that. The mask smells very subtly like cocoa, which I love. After leaving it on for 15-20 minutes I rinsed it with warm water. The exfoliating grains made it super easy to rinse and it felt great to take the time and massage my skin with those little grains, leaving my skin super smooth and plump.

This mask is awesome. It's fun to mix your own mask, the ingredients are natural & organic, it's not super drying and I love the subtle cocoa scent. It's a great alternative if masks like the Aztec Clay are too drying/intense.

You can buy this online at OsmiaOrganics.com or if you're in Canada, ClementineFields.ca carries the line and they have an awesome sample program!

What are your favourite clay masks?

  4. I would love to try Osmia products as I've heard only good reviews about them, but it's soooo difficult to get Osmia in the UK. Your post is making me even more determined to get my hands on their products, especially the clay! :) Apparently their spot treatment is really good as well. Have you tried it? Please let me know your thoughts if you have. Love your blog and Youtube videos. Pupici!

  6. You might choose to have the black version for a small amount of fake chanel bags, or perhaps the red one for a trendier look. Whichever you prefer, both bags have black leather trims and as well as silver tone hardware for contrast. It has drawstring pockets on each side which then enhances its overall design. The equestrian knight chanel replica handbags is defined on the front for subtle branding and to keep its minimal design. It has top handles with ring emotions and is sized at about 14 1/6 x 15? x 4 1/8 in ., which is already enough for your fashionable beach essentials and chanel replica bags. Since this is a versatile Burberry bag, you could pair it with summer dresses or beach attire for a relaxed look while at the beach, or perhaps with jeans and smart casual attire while town center. Starting a purse party consulting business is a really chanel replica bags, creative and exciting way to make earnings working from home. Unlike many other home party businesses (like Tupperware for example) which have fixed online catalogs of merchanidse that you are forced to select chanel replica handbags, purse parties are a lot more flexible structure since the purse party consultant has the luxury of deciding the sorts of purses, purses and accessories that she wishes to sell at the party depending on her own personal tastes and the preferences of the guests that will be attending.
