Recently, I’ve become more and more interested in clay masks. I know, I know, what’s taken me so long? Clay masks are a beauty essential! The problem was, clay masks have in the past been too drying for my dehydrated skin, sucking the moisture right out of my face. So even though I love the purifying effects of clay masks, they haven’t been a staple in my skincare routine.
Lately, however, I seem to have discovered a few clay masks that actually leave my skin feeling moisturized and smooth, rather than dehydrated and tight. The Alaska Glacial Clay Mask Powder is one of them. This ingenious mask comes in powder form, so not only does this give it a super long shelf life, but it also means you can customize it any way you want depending on what your skin needs.
Alaska Glacial Clay Mask Review
The Alaska glacial clay itself is harvested from the Copper River in Alaska, and contains trace minerals and nutrients to nourish your skin. I love mixing things together, so I was up for a little experiment! You can mix this powder mask with plain old water, of course, but I was also given some great recipes from the company for other ways to mix up the Alaska glacial clay mask, which I’ll share at the end of this post.
Personally, I decided to mix the clay into a sleeping mask that I already had, the Innisfree Wine Jelly Sleeping Pack. I love the creamy texture of this mask, and thought it would help keep the clay mask on the more moisturizing side.
The complete ingredients of this mask? Alaska glacial clay. That’s it! ‘Nuf said!
I had to add a few drops of toner to get everything to mix smoothly, but once it was mixed, it was a deliciously smooth and refreshing, dark gray clay mask, much less sticky or thick than other clay masks I’ve tried.
Probably because I mixed the clay with a very creamy sleeping pack, it took a long time to dry. When I washed it off? Holy moly, my skin looked SO smooth and even-toned. Redness was gone, and the texture of my skin looked much more refined. The best part is, I didn’t experience any dryness; in fact, my skin looked plumper and smoother than before.
Needless to say, I’m hooked. I love the concept of being able to mix the clay powder with anything you want. The tin comes with a lot, so you’ll get a lot of uses out of it, especially since the recipes only call for about a teaspoon of the powder at a time.
It’s all natural, it’s preservative-free, it’s super fun to use, the effects on my skin were stellar, and it comes in a large tin for the very affordable price of $19.50. I’ve become a clay mask convert!
