For the past week and a bit I’ve been lucky enough to experience the Alive Bio Organic Facial Mask – Green Envy. The product is as the name suggests, green. As normal, anything that is green is good for you be in vegetables, trees, grass and even skin care. Green is better! This mask is typically for people who have excess sebum build up which results in oily or acne prone skin. The key ingredient in the mask is French Green Clay, imported from the source in France, this is the base of all the Alive products and is renowned for having healing properties. In the form of a facial mask, this French Green Clay uses it absorptive property to draw out impurities, excess oil and toxins.
If you are more worried about combatting the signs of ageing, then the Immortal Beauty facial mask is more up your street, the key ingredient in this mask is French Red Clay which contains iron oxides to smoothe, soften, lighten and refine the grain of your skin resulting in a painless facelift in a tub. Essential oils are also used to regenerate skin cells.
For the best results the masks should be applied to the face with a mask brush and left for 15 minutes or until the clay has dried and then removed with warm water, followed by your every day/evening moisturiser. You can use the facial masks daily on problematic areas or use weekly as part of your at-home facials.
Immediately, after first use I noticed that my skin felt smoother, although you may experience a slight redness due to the mask stimulating blood flow beneath the surface of the skin to eliminate impurities, excess oil and toxins (I did not, which is surprising as my skin can red faster than a Ferrari can go from 0-100km per hour).
