About the product:
The mask comes in a transparent plastic jar with black screw-top lid. The product is in powder form and has to be mixed with water prior to usage. It has a nice coffee aroma to it.
Kaolin clay, Bentonite clay, Rhassoul clay, Organic coffee powder.
Directions to use:
Apply a thin layer of this face pack mixed with plain water. Let it dry naturally. Splash cold water and gradually remove face pack. Do not rub harshly.
This Mud Mask contains kaolin, bentonite and rhassoul clay- all beneficial in removing excess oil and impurities. The coffee powder is slightly coarse which gives a mild scrubbing action.
I used about half spoonful of the mask and mixed it with rose water. Once in contact with water, you can notice the coffee powder distinctively due to dark brown colour. The coffee aroma is pleasant and not overpowering at all. The mask is easy to apply and wash off. I used it twice a week for 15 minutes and it removed all excess oil from the skin.
But unlike other face masks, this does not dry out the skin but leaves it really soft and supple. This will be useful during winters when my favourite Multani mitti face pack is too drying. It will suit combination skin well due to this non-drying factor. Overall, I am satisfied with this face mask.
No artificial additives

Not drying like many clay masks
Will suit both oily and combination skin.
Did not see any effect on existing whiteheads.
