I like to spend my lazy Saturdays going to the farmers market, doing a little cleaning around the house…and relaxing on the couch for a bit with a great facial mask. (You too?) Anyway, on a whim I snapped up a jar of this great little facial mask from Acure Organics, and I’m so glad I did.
What I tried: Argan Stem Cell + CGF Facial Mask from Acure Organics, $15.99
First impressions: This is luxurious stuff. The texture is really creamy and thick, like a whipped mousse—perfect for slathering. And it has some powerful skin-healing and anti-aging ingredients: Moroccan Argan stem cells, CoQ10, and Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF). Add to that Seabuckthorn Oil for moisture and French Green Clay to draw out impurities and cleanse your skin, and you have a recipe for a soothing, healing facial mask that feels just as amazing as it sounds.
What caught me by surprise: It smells (lightly) minty! At first I thought perhaps the CGF smells like mint, but after a quick study of the ingredients list, I spotted a sage and spearmint essential oil blend. Mystery solved.
Bonus: I can absolutely tell an immediate difference in my skin after a session with this stuff. My face feels smoother, softer, and healthier. And it doesn’t feel uncomfortably tight or itchy as it dries.
