Today I’m reviewing the Sea Clay Body Mask from Formulary 55 that came in my August Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken form the Petit Vour website]
An all over detoxifying body treatment mask that is especially effective on the neck, back, and decolletage. Designed to tone, treat, and tighten; this purifying body mask removes impurities, pollutants and excess oils without stripping the skin.
I have never tried a body mask mask before so I was not sure what to expect. The mask itself is a green powder.
Mix 1/2 of a packet with water. Apply a thin layer over damp skin and allow to dry. Leave on for 10-20 minutes then rinse off with warm water. Mask can also be used as a facial or spot treatment for those with oily complexions.
I tested the Sea Clay Body Mask on my neck and chest, and left it on for 15 minutes. I applied the mask with my mask brush (far less messy than trying to apply with fingers).
The mask tingled the entire time that it was on my skin but it was not a full-on skin melting feeling. The joys of sensitive skin…
I removed the mask using cool water instead of the suggested warm water. My neck and chest were both super red upon removal, and the redness gradually faded after several hours – it looked like a sunburn at first.
Ingredients 100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Dead Sea Mineral Clay, Matcha Powder, Activated Charcoal, And A Proprietary Blend Of Essential Oils.
Looking at the ingredients, I am unable pinpoint what could have caused my skin to react – quite possibly the unspecified essential oils – since I’ve successfully used products with mineral clay, matcha and charcoal without any problems.
If you don’t have sensitive skin (or a sensitivity to any of the ingredients), this might be awesome for you. Once my skin calmed down and returned to its normal colour, it felt soft and smooth, but I don’t think that this is the one for me due to sensitivity issues because if I react to a product or ingredient, and if I use it again, the reaction is often worse the second time around.
Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!
