I use this mask when my skin is looking dull or when I see the beginning of a break out. I know that when I rinse the mask off after 30 minutes, my face, down to my pores, will feel deeply clean and look fresh and rejuvenated. I'll never give this mask up!
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.
Now, many new customers ask us what the difference is between Blackstrap Molasses Mask and Frightening Green Mask. These masks have different ingredients but both are broad-action masks, accomplishing detox, exfoliation, purifying, and firming. Sometimes it comes down to which mask one prefers in terms of scent, ingredients, and texture. In general, the Frightening Green Mask is a little milder compared to Blackstrap Molasses Mask; it can be used more frequently, is more specifically geared toward healing acne tendencies and acne spots, and is herbal-scented, and it contains a very small amount of mild fruit extracts that act like fruit acids. The Blackstrap Molasses Mask, on the other hand, is more about firming, resurfacing, healing of scars, and lightening of hyperpigmentation, and it is molasses-rose-geranium scented.

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.
