Birchbox Breakdown

Sometimes it feels like we’ve tried everything under the sun to combat our stubborn acne. Ditch the harsh chemicals and battle breakouts in a whole new—and 100 percent natural—way. This spot-treatment mask contains five time-tested African healing ingredients to soothe and clear your complexion without the side effects of conventional acne products. Naturally, we like the sound of that.

How to Use

Mix ¼ to ½ tsp. of powder with hot water to form a thick paste. Allow the paste to cool, and apply it over blemishes. Let the mask set for 30–60 minutes, and then rinse your face with warm water. For active blemishes, repeat twice daily for optimal results. To prevent breakouts, apply mask to entire face for 15 minutes, 1–2 times each week.

Moroccan Lava Clay (ghassool), thyme powder (thymus vulgaris), rose hips powder (rosa canina), powdered honey, aloe vera powder (aloe barbadensis)

Different than most, but seems really powerful

This is a strange mixture of herbs and spices and mud, but it works. I feel my face tighten and "shrink" as it dries on my face. Some have said it's hard to wash off, but I just use a buff puff and warm water and it comes off and all my dead skin too. I use it three times a week. I really like it. I am new so haven't seen if it really helps with acne, but I can sure bet it will.

Great mask!

This mask works like I want a mask to work. It tingles, it tightens and leaves pores visibly smaller. Great for oily and combination skin. May be a little much for dry skin.

Reduces blemishes!

I read reviews on a lot of masks sold on here before I decided on this one! In my search I was looking for one that was all natural and chemical free. There are other shea terra brands that are chemical free, but I went with this one because of the acne fighting properties of it's ingredients.

I have been using this mask for over a month. I always have breakouts on my chin. I will put this on at night and leave on my face all night for spot treatment. (I go to bed once it's dry and it stays in place all night) In the morning not only are any blemishes dramatically reduced in size, but former scars are less noticeable! This has been a great mask for spot treatment and clearing blemishes on your face.

For mixing... since it is powder, it's a huge plus in getting a bang for your buck but also a little tricky. I just put a tiny amount in a hairspray cap, use my finger to add water drop by drop until it is a soft paste, and apply to my face.

The scent... a couple of the reviews mentioned hating the smell. It has thyme and turmeric in it. It mostly smells like that...herbs! Also... it is a bit challenging to get off. I just use warm water and then a towel to help get it off easier.

I recommend!

Torn about my feelings for this product.

This product was extremely effective after one use. Which, is definitely the point when it comes to combating acne. However, it was extremely difficult to remove! It left my face more than irritated for about an hour. It eventually calmed down and my skin was soft and extremely clean. It worked after just one use, but if you have sensitive skin (which I do not) I absolutely do not recommend this product.

Wasn't Bad

I was excited to try the product since I suffer from acne. I didn't use it as a mask yet, just on my acne spots. I know different products work for different people, but I liked it for a spot reduction acne treatment. The only downside was the smell. I didn't think it was a pleasant smell, but to each his own.
