Whenever I am suffering from breakouts I use this mask for its deep cleansing effects and ability to dry out my zits… It isn’t overly drying and even leaves my skin brighter after using it.
We created Frightening Green Face Mask for those customers who are seeking a deeply purifying, strong-acting, yet all-natural mask that gives serious cleansing and exfoliating results in one application, and who want a ready-to-apply (premoistened) mask in their busy lives. Ava's initial inspiration here was the freshly milled scents of rosemary and thyme and the soul-soothing yet sense-awakening juniper berry, then we added a little pore-clearing eucalyptus and detoxifying sea kelp.
You will feel the deep cleansing effect of this mask even after just one application. French green clay draws impurities and toxins from the skin and gently dries up breakouts. The finely ground rosemary and thyme leaves heal acne, while rosemary also firms, decongests, and diminishes wrinkles.
Witch hazel tones, refines pores, and purifies. Kelp and juniper berry, quite unique ingredients in face masks, are employed here to remove lymph and water stagnation. Stagnant lymph can be responsible for puffiness or a tired, "gray" complexion.
There is also a dose of natural fruit acids included, derived from pineapple, passionfruit, and white grape, which help exfoliate, brighten, firm, and over time diminish scars, brown spots, and wrinkles and improve the skin's texture by evening out any small bumpiness.
This mask is sold pre-moistened, so keep it in the refrigerator to maintain its moisture level and optimal thickness. Naturally scented with essential oils of juniper berries, eucalyptus, thyme, and rosemary.
How does this compare to the other masks we offer?
Frightening Green Face Mask is a deeply purifying clay-herb mask for skin types that can tolerate stronger anti-acne herbs and essential oils such as thyme and sage. It is the first choice for acne-prone, blackhead-prone, or oily skin, and provides immediate, visible effects and a cooling feel on the skin. It has a strong herbal scent from the thyme, rosemary, and sage. Frightening Green Face Mask is not recommended during pregnancy due to the thyme and sage, and it is not vegan, as it contains raw, humanely-gathered honey.
All three of our premoistened masks, Blackstrap Molasses, Frightening Green, and Pumpkin and Papaya, detoxify, exfoliate, and firm the skin, but while Frightening Green is more specifically geared toward healing acne, the Pumpkin and Papaya Mask is more appropriate for dry, sensitive, and thin skin, and the Blackstrap mask is more about firming, resurfacing, healing scars, and lightening pigmentation.
For those who enjoy a fine-powder-format mask, Catharsis is extremely versatile and well tolerated by all skin types, while Sungod provides longer-term results and is for reducing signs of aging, scars, and skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, and acne over time.
Certified cruelty free, vegetarian (contains humanely gathered honey), cold process, handcrafted, 100% natural.

Wash face in warm water with a mild cleanser. Dry gently, leaving skin damp. Apply mask with your fingertips or a brush onto face and neck, avoiding eyes and lips. Leave on 20 to 30 minutes. Rinse with warm water. You can use damp cotton rounds to help soften and remove the mask. Alternately, you can use this mask only on the more oily T-zone or just on acne breakouts as a spot treatment. Use once or twice a week. Follow with a moisturizer. Close the jar tightly after each use and refrigerate the product between uses.
We suggest using a flat mask brush to easily apply this product, resulting in a thin, even layer. This method of application will help you use just the right amount and give you the maximum number of applications from each jar. Also, more and more customers and green beauty bloggers have suggested a very savvy tip that we recommend as well: mist the face with any hydrosol, facial toner or mist, or even just water periodically while the mask is on; this will keep the mask moist. This reduces the drying effect of any clay mask and enhances the nourishing benefits of our Frightening Green Mask ingredients.

Due to the very high cost of our ingredients and the labor-intensive (highly time consuming) small-batch production process, we are unable to accept returns of opened or unopened products at this time. But most products have a sample size option for purchase, so we encourage you to buy a sample first to ensure that the product suits your skin's needs and that you enjoy the texture, fragrance, and healing properties.
